    Jun 15, 2010, 4:07 PM EDT

    UPDATE, 5:51 PM: According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Johnny Ludden of Yahoo!

  4. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: For Lakers, it is back to the beginning

    Jun 15, 2010, 3:27 PM EDT

    What do you do when things aren’t working? Because things are not working for the Lakers. In a series that was going to be decided inside, Boston is wining the war. The Lakers shot just 47 percent (8 of 17) at the rim last game. That is 47 percent on layups and tip ins. The…

  5. Your NBA Finals complaining stats

    Jun 15, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    NBA referees call lots of fouls and violations over the course of a game. The players those fouls and violations are called on often disagree with the rulings made against them. This much we know. But which players are the biggest whiners when a whistle doesn’t go their way? Any NBA fan curious about that…

  6. Coby Karl believes George Karl will return to coaching

    Jun 15, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    One of the saddest storylines of this year’s playoffs was George Karl being forced to miss the Nuggets’ first-round playoff series because of a bout with throat and neck cancer. The Nuggets lost the series in Karl’s absence, and many feared that we had seen the last of Karl as an NBA head coach. Fortunately,…

  7. Avery Johnson may hire Sam Mitchell as an assistant

    Jun 15, 2010, 2:26 PM EDT

    Fired ex-coaches stick together. Apparently. Because according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, new Net’s head man Avery Johnson is interviewing former Raptors head coach Sam Mitchell for an assistant’s job. Always a smart thing to have a former Coach of the Year on the sidelines. And it’s good to see Mitchell get another chance. Other assistant…

  8. Jarrett Jack reportedly wants to be traded, but nobody bothered to tell Jarrett Jack

    Jun 15, 2010, 1:34 PM EDT

    We know Hedo Turkoglu wants out of Toronto, we think Chris Bosh wants out of Toronto, and we thought we knew that Jarrett Jack wanted out of Toronto. It turns out the latter isn’t exactly true, as rumors of Jack’s discontent with the Raptors organization appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely fabricated.…

  9. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: For Boston, it is win now or never

    Jun 15, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    There’s the math, and then there is the reality. The math says Boston needs to win just one of the two games in Los Angeles to win the title. They won Game 2, they’ve proven they can win on this floor. History says they can do it — the won a Game 7 in Los…

  10. Kurt Rambis on Pau Gasol: "He just looks tired."

    Jun 15, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol is not soft. He is tired. That is what former Laker assistant and current Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Kurt Rambis sees, and what he told Dan Bareirro on KFAN in Minneapolis. Gasol looked good in the first two games when he was getting help from Andrew Bynum, but with Bynum fading and Odom…

  11. Raymond Felton's future with the Bobcats as uncertain as ever

    Jun 15, 2010, 12:09 PM EDT

    While it’s incredibly clear that guys like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will be paid top dollar this off-season, establishing the market for the moderately-skilled free agents is a bit more complex. There will certainly be some teams looking to spend their cap room this summer, regardless of whether that’s on James, Joe Johnson, Carlos…

  12. Winderman: The lesson is the regular season is overrated

    Jun 15, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    What we have here is a referendum on the regular season, affirmation, if you will, of whether the first 82 games are, as many insist, indeed overrated. At 50-32, the Celtics finished tied for the ninth-best record in the NBA. Only four of the 16 playoff teams finished behind Boston. As a matter of perspective,…

  13. Orlando Magic decide to get really creative, change up their logo

    Jun 15, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

    A logo change for the Magic has been in the works for some time now, but images of Orlando’s new logo have finally surfaced today. I could tell you it was revolutionary, a beautifully creative design etched by the hands of a visionary. Or, I guess, I could just show you this wonder of modern…

  14. NBA Draft: Prospects not walking in Memphis

    Jun 15, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    What’s not to love about Memphis? Fantastic barbecue. Up-and-coming team with good talent. Elvis. Three picks in the first round to get better. Good coach. Did we mention the barbecue? But draft prospects are not that into them. And they are not getting those prospects to come in to workouts, according to the Commercial Appeal.…

  15. Bargain-hunting Bobcats hold free agent "mini-camp"

    Jun 15, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    Two teams are still alive and vying for the title, but the other 28? They’re taking Tom Izzo out for steak dinners, preparing for the NBA draft, and trying to figure out ways to leave nameless, non-specific messages on LeBron James’ voicemail. Or in the case of the Bobcats, doing what just about every NBA…

  16. New York celebrities form team to woo LeBron James

    Jun 15, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    What do the New York Knicks have to offer LeBron James? A roster of quality players ready to compete for a title once he signs? No. More money than any other team can offer? Nope, that’s Cleveland. The chance to occasionally escape the glare of the spotlight in the comforts of your hometown? No, kind…

  17. Clippers coaching search on hold while they focus on free agents

    Jun 15, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    LeBron James has avoided being involved in any coaching decisions like they are the plague. That will not deter the Clippers, who have put their coaching search on hold while they focus on pursuing James and other free agents, according to a note in the Milwaukee Journal Times. “Put their coaching search on hold” is…

  18. Pacers have interest in Ty Lawson for No. 10 pick

    Jun 15, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    We told you yesterday that the Denver Nuggets were looking for a top 10 pick and they were dangling Ty Lawson as the bait. The Indiana Pacers are nibbling, according to Mike Wells at the Indianapolis Star. The Pacers are interested in Lawson, according to a source. The Pacers are willing to give up their…

  19. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: Lamar Odom has the flu

    Jun 15, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    This time, there may actually be a reason for Lamar Odom’s quiet night. Odom started feeling sick with flu-like symptoms on Saturday and did not feel better during his 8-point performance in Game 5 Sunday. He hoped to be felling better for Game 6, he told Lisa Dillman at the Los Angeles Times. “I haven’t…

  20. Another day, another Tom Izzo update, one not fit for a child's ear

    Jun 15, 2010, 8:21 AM EDT

    Like sands through the hourglass, so go the days of watching Tom Izzo decide…. Or not decide as the case may be. There is no decision from Camp Izzo. Literally. Yesterday 16 credentialed media showed up to Tom Izzo’s youth basketball camp but the coach did not speak to them. He did speak to his…
