  1. Avery Johnson may not be the Hornets man, they keep interviewing

    May 17, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    When the New Orleans Hornets went in search of a new coach, the prevailing wisdom was this was Avery Johnson’s job to lose. He’s a Louisiana native, he likes a style and pace that would suit Chris Paul, and the incoming owner Gary Chouest liked him. Johnson may have lost it. Depends on who you…

  2. Joe Johnson to the Bulls?

    May 17, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Free agent talk around the Bulls seems to be focusing on some other guy. Can’t quite recall his name. Pretty good player though, as I remember. But the Joe Johnson is a free agent this summer and while the Atlanta Hawks want him back, he may just fly the coop. All the way to Chicago,…

  3. 2010 NBA draft: How John Wall could change the world for one lucky lottery team

    May 17, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    Your top overall pick in the 2010 draft will almost certainly be Kentucky’s John Wall, the tremendously athletic, do-it-all point guard. The guy makes beautiful YouTube highlight reels in his sleep for god’s sake, and aside from an in-development three-point stroke, is anything you could ever want from a point guard coming out of college.…

  4. NBA Draft Lottery 101: The primer

    May 17, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    Tomorrow night, Secaucus is the place to be. Okay, Secaucus, New Jersey, is never THE place to be. Better to be down in Orlando, where the Eastern Conference Finals are taking place, for example. But some team will leave Secaucus Tuesday night thinking they are on the path to the Finals after they win the…

  5. Today is the day the Warriors owner finds his team not worth as much as he hoped.

    May 17, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    I’m sure you knew this already, because you and your drinking buddies had been working on your submission over the weekend: Today is the first day to submit formal bids to buy the Golden State Warriors. This is where wishes meet reality. Like when you put a home up for sale and you work with…

  6. What do the Knicks have to lure LeBron? New York City

    May 17, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    Clippers fans are throwing a quaint little parade. Bulls fans are acting like frontrunners. Cavaliers fans are FREAKING OUT. The Knicks? They are ready to make a pitch to LeBron James using the best selling point they have: New York City. The stars, the glamour, the fast paced life, all of it. Living the perfect…

  7. Jazz owner hints the team might be just fine without Carlos Boozer

    May 17, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    Let’s be perfectly clear — the Jazz are going to try and bring back Carlos Boozer. And not in some half-assed way. That’s not how the Jazz and the Miller family do business, this is a professional organization. They will make what they think is a fair offer. But if Boozer goes, that would not…

  8. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: The last word

    May 17, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    It’s time for the last word on Game 1 between Boston and we are giving it to the players and coaches. Well, this isn’t the last word from us, who are we kidding? There will be some more breakdowns and analysis later. But these guys should get their say.  

  9. Doug Collins, Avery Johnson in Sixers set up second round of coach interviews

    May 17, 2010, 9:06 AM EDT

    The preliminaries are over — the Philadelphia 76ers are getting serious about a new coach now. They did their due diligence and interviewed virtually everybody living east of the Mississippi River. Then they flew to Phoenix and interviewed Doug Collins. Now that the team brass has enough frequent flier miles for that vacation to Hawaii,…

  10. Clippers fans to put on LeBron parade

    May 17, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. –Red (Morgan Freeman) from the Shawshank Redemption For Clippers fans, there is always hope. Hope that this time the number one pick stays healthy. Hope that the owner and general manager will make more good calls than…

  11. Report: Lebron James, John Calipari being shopped as package deal.

    May 17, 2010, 1:46 AM EDT

    Buy one, get the second one at an exorbitant full price. And it may be worth it. May. According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls are one of the team that have been approached about interest in a LeBron James and John Calipari package deal. League sources said Sunday that noted NBA power broker William…

  12. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: Where the Magic couldn't score inside or out

    May 16, 2010, 7:29 PM EDT

    Magics fans couldn’t help but ask: Who were those guys? What happened to the Magic that steamrolled an Atlanta team (who finished with a better record than Boston)? They recognize the guys from the fourth quarter comeback, but that was not enough. Now the Magic are in a 1-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals.…

  13. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Everything coming up Celtic Green

    May 16, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    If they keep playing like this, who’s going to stop the Boston Celtics? Certainly not the Orlando Magic, who walked into Game 1 against the Celtics as heavy favorites, having swept their first two series of the playoffs only to get blownout for thrre quarters, make a furious comeback that came up short, and eventually…

  14. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1 Halftime: Celtic defense smothering all light from universe

    May 16, 2010, 4:34 PM EDT

    The Celtics lead 41-32 at the half of Game 1 behind a defensive performance that was stunning. If you’re going to write a book on playing championship level defense, you want to start by looking at what the Celtics did for a long stretch from the opening tip until about the seven minute mark of…

  15. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: Matt Barnes on Ray Allen? Vince Carter on Paul Pierce? Interesting.

    May 16, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes is nasty. He is a gritty defender. Hard nosed. In your face. Opposing fans hate him — Boston fans will come to loathe him like nobody else this playoffs. But Ray Allen may dislike him more. Allen has been deadly these playoffs — 42.5 percent from three and hitting better from everywhere than…

  16. Hawks apparently ready to bid against themselves for Joe Johnson

    May 16, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    You just knew somebody was going to make the mistake this summer of offering Joe Johnson a max deal that extends too long at five years. Didn’t expect it to be the Hawks, though.   That is what the New York Daily News is reporting the Hawks will do, adding that they want a new…

  17. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: The Redick-ulous Ray Allen matchup

    May 16, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    One is arguably the best jump shooter in the NBA, one of the best pure shooters in history, and one of the top five guys you want with the ball in his hand and an open look with the clock ready to expire. He’s an NBA champion, a roundball legend, and a primary component for…

  18. Can the Pistons make a gamechanger move by trading Rodney Stuckey?

    May 16, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Remember when Joe Dumars was considered arguably the best general manager in the league behind maybe R.C. Buford in San Antonio? Seems like a lifetime ago. After signing Charlie Villanueva and Ben Gordon last summer, effectively vaporizing their 2010 cap space and a chance at a major impact signing this July, Dumars watched the team…

  19. NBA Playoffs Suns Lakers Game 1: The Lakers will have no part of Arizona immigration politics

    May 16, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Those Lakers, always the marketing machine. The Suns last month made a public stand against the Arizona immigration law that has pretty much everyone up in arms one way or another. Following up their public statements of protest, the Suns wore their “Los Suns” jerseys against the Spurs for Game 3 of their playoff series.…
