  1. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Phil Jackson throws some love toward Doc Rivers

    Jun 11, 2010, 3:35 PM EDT

    History is not going to record Doc Rivers as the same level of coach as Phil Jackson. Because he’s not. But right now, with this team, Rivers is every bit the coach he has to be, every bit the match for Jackson. And Jackson knows it. Today at his press conference he threw some love…

  2. Report: Bobcats' Tyson Chandler may opt out, test free agent market

    Jun 11, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    Nobody can over-value their own worth like congressmen and NBA players. Meet Tyson Chandler. He is a defensive and rebounding specialist who has missed 68 games over the last two years. He is scheduled to make $12.6 million next season in the last year of his contract signed back when he was the best defensive…

  3. Bulls have come late to the LeBron party, at least in LeBron's mind

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    Right now, Chicago is the leading non-Cleveland candidate in the LeBron James sweepstakes. We think. LeBron isn’t talking, and neither are the people really on the inside of the circle (and if they are it’s not to reveal anything, just to gain leverage). So there’s a lot of Kremlinology going on, and a lot of,…

  4. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Odom is as Odom does

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom is a perplexing player. He possesses an enviable skill set and considerable talent, but after a career’s worth of opportunities, roles, teams, and coaches, no one has quite found the magic button that would turn Odom into a superstar. Juxtapose the ongoing Odom conundrum with Andrew Bynum, who is more of a conventional…

  5. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 5: Phil Jackson wants Andrew Bynum to play

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson talked with the media today — there were no practices, both teams had the day off — and he said that Andrew Bynum still gives them something even when he is dragging his leg around.

  6. Phoenix is Amar'e Stoudemire's "Plan A." As long as they pay him.

    Jun 11, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    It’s all about the money. Amar’e Stoudemire threw a verbal bouquet to Phoenix on the last day of his youth basketball camp. But it came with the caveat — he wants to be paid. The Arizona Republic has the quote. Stoudemire called signing a contract extension with the Suns this month “Plan A.” “Camp colors…

  7. Avery Johnson's new gig: And now for something completely different

    Jun 11, 2010, 11:22 AM EDT

    When Avery Johnson got his new coaching job — a coveted one, head man for the New Jersey Nets — the natural thing to do was to bring up his coaching record in Dallas. Three plus seasons, .735 winning percentage, two 60 plus win seasons, took a team to the NBA finals. But that job…

  8. Sixers hire Austin Toros' coach Quin Snyder as head of player development

    Jun 11, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The 2009-2010 season was already a fantastic one for the D-League, with a record number of NBA call-ups, incredible success for individual players like Reggie Williams and Anthony Tolliver, and record attendance and viewership. It seems the 2010-2011 season will pick up right where this year left off, as there’s already one notable D-League call-up…

  9. The Wizards aren't even working out Evan Turner

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    John Wall is a can’t-miss prospect. He’s going to be a star in the NBA for a long, long time, and he’s immensely talented. So much so that the only suspense between the draft lottery and the draft itself concerned whether or not the Wizards could possibly talk themselves out of taking Wall with the…

  10. Leonsis won't be bringing back the 'Bullets' moniker

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:09 AM: Leonsis further clarified his stance on a potential name-change on his blog (also courtesy of Mike Prada): “In regards to a name change of the team, we have a lot of work to do right now on re-crafting the team itself, focusing on the draft, our number 1 pick, free agency, selling…

  11. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: The Big Baby and Nate show

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:12 AM EDT

    Here’s a clip from the best press conference of the playoffs — the Big Baby and Nate show. Also Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson talking about the Celtics bench and their energy.  

  12. Tom Izzo to decide on Cavaliers job. Someday. In the near future.

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    It was probably a lot like those time share sales pitches you suffered through to get those two free days in Las Vegas. Tom Izzo has traveled to Cleveland and heard their hard-sell sales pitch. He talked with their people and toured the facilities (which he had been at before) while his family toured the…

  13. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: If he's going to play like that, Big Baby can drool all he wants

    Jun 11, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

    Make no mistake — Big Baby slobbered. He drooled. Just like a baby. On national television. For all the cameras to catch. He doesn’t really care. And if he can play like that again in Game 5, the entire city of Boston will drool right along with him. (I think the Southies already do.) “Let…

  14. Hawks brass meeting to figure out coaching decision

    Jun 11, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    The Atlanta Hawks appear ready to go get their coach… after just one more meeting. Nearly a month after they fired Mike Woodson and less than a week before the NBA Draft, the Hawks owners and front office are going to sit down today and decide who they want as a head coach. That according…

  15. Quote of the day, where the Celtics are doing movie promos

    Jun 11, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    “We’re like Shrek and Donkey.” –Nate Robinson on him and Glen “Big Baby” Davis.

  16. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 4: Blogbook drools like a Big Baby

    Jun 11, 2010, 3:48 AM EDT

    A collection of thoughts on Lakers-Celtics Game 4… If Glen Davis is a Drunken Seal, tonight was the big show at Sea World and everyone clapped for him. Davis was a beast, and his ability to create shots against the Lakers’ bigs was pretty much the difference in the game. Davis’ emotion seems like a…

  17. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics: Pierce comes alive as Celtics even series

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:43 AM EDT

    In game four, the stifling defense of the Boston Celtics was once again able to keep the Lakers from doing what they wanted to do on the offensive end. For the second game in a row, the Lakers had trouble establishing their post game (Bynum being limited to 12 minutes certainly contributed to this), and…

  18. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: Bynum sits, game gets physical and it feels like 2008 again

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:01 AM EDT

    These Lakers were different. It’s what we heard, it’s what we saw. These Lakers were not soft, they would not roll over for the Celtics like two years ago. Right? And they didn’t. For three games. Then Andrew Bynum sat, his knee clearly worse for the wear. Then Game 4 got physical. Then for the…

  19. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4, halftime: Lakers lead after ugly half of basketball

    Jun 10, 2010, 10:24 PM EDT

    There comes a point in a seven-game series when the games get ugly. Teams have watched the film, lived the other team for a few games and they now anticipate everything. They know where the next pass is headed, the next cut is going. They can stop things before they happen. We are there in…
