  1. New Nets owner not exactly Internet savvy

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    NBA players are products of their generation — they communicate heavily via text and send emails, all from their cell phone. Often doing it while at a VIP table in the back of a bar while drinking Gray Goose. New Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov may find it a challenge to relate to his players (via…

  2. OMG Gentry luvs 2 text

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Alvin Gentry is the king of social media among NBA coaches. Which is a very, very small hill to climb — can you really picture Phil Jackson trying to fit his comments in 140 characters? But credit Gentry, he’s on top of it. In addition to having his own twitter account, he’s a texter, he…

  3. Nowitzki doesn't really understand ejection

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki is no Rasheed Wallace. Rasheed does not appreciate the subtle musical mastery of David Hasselhoff. Nowitzki rarely says anything to referees that will get him a technical. He did Tuesday night, getting two quick ones from Bill Kennedy and getting tossed. Nowitzki tells the Star Telegram he doesn’t know exactly what he did.…

  4. Paul Allen issues statement, says nothing

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    UPDATE 10:13 am: The Oregonian’s John Canzano tried to get more information out of Paul Allen last night. Didn’t go so well. But I asked him at the end of the first half, as he headed into the room he uses as an office, if he’d mind going stronger with the comments on Pritchard. The…

  5. Steve Kerr may stick around in Phoenix

    Mar 26, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    Steve Kerr’s first couple months on the job in Phoenix in 2008 really can only be called an unmitigated disaster — the Shaquille O’Neal trade, sending Mike D’Antoni away and trying to take a team that was a title contender and change it on the fly. Bad idea jeans. But things are better now —…

  6. Colangelo: Individual agendas hurt Raptors

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    Toronto is a bad team. Have been for more than a month. The Raptors would have fallen out of the playoffs by now if the Bulls were worse. Since the All-Star Game, Toronto is 6-12. General Manager Brian Colangelo told Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star that individual agendas have gotten in the way of…

  7. Heat make D-League call-up

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:17 AM EDT

    Looking to add a little front-line depth, the Miami Heat today will call up maybe the most promising big man in the D-League, Alade Aminu. Ridiculous Upside broke the story, adding that since a mid-season trade to Bakersfield Aminu has averaged 19.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. It was expected someone would…

  8. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 26, 2010, 3:07 AM EDT

    What you missed while watching Gus Johnson go Gus Johnson… Heat 103, Bulls 74: Miami’s offense looked great. Chicago’s game plan — a very logical one — was to take Dwyane Wade out, do not let him beat you with his shot. So he passed, and finished with 10 assists. The Heat pounded the soft…

  9. Price set for sale of Wizards, Verizon Center

    Mar 25, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    Unlike the sale 3,000 miles away in the Bay Area, there are no real secrets about the sale of the Washington Wizards. When owner Abe Pollin died it was already agreed his estate was going to try to sell the team and the building to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis. Today they cleared one of…

  10. Bucks sign Darnell Jackson

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:51 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski’s legendary twitter feed, the Milwaukee Bucks have signed recently waived Cavaliers forward Darnell Jackson. Jackson is a solidly built forward who played four years at Kansas, winning a national championship with the team in 2008. He showed promise in his rookie season with the Cavaliers, but was out of the rotation…

  11. Prokhorov to appear on "60 Minutes"

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:32 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov might be the enigmatic billionaire who will save the Nets. He’s a Russian Oligarch. He’s been described as a “wild child.” He once spent $19,000 on a lunch. He does tricks on a jet ski. He’s been called the “Russian Mark Cuban,” although that label might be restrictive. Soon, American audiences will have…

  12. Tyreke Evans out at least two more games

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans — the guy who should be rookie of the year, sorry Jennings — is going to miss the Kings only visits this year to Cleveland and Boston. That is on doctor’s orders. Evans suffered a concussion back on March 19 against the Bucks and is still feeling the effects of that, as reported…

  13. Is Kevin Durant having the best free-throw shooting season ever?

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    The free throw line is the easiest place to get points in the NBA. However, there’s a bit of a paradox inherent in free-throw shooting. The guys who get to the line the most — gigantic centers like Dwight Howard and Shaq, along with bruising perimeter players — tend to be the worst free-throw shooters…

  14. Who are the best offensive rebounders in the NBA?

    Mar 25, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    If you’re Josh Smith or Dominique Wilkins, offensive rebounding can look very, very cool. But for most guys in the NBA, offensive rebounding is doing the dirty work. While everyone else is out on the perimeter handling the ball, slicing through defenders and firing up jumpers to get their points, offensive rebounders have to get…

  15. Blatche apologizes for his behavior

    Mar 25, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    A little while ago, Wizards forward Andray Blatche was benched by Flip Saunders for, as Saunders put it, “not wanting to be coached or wanting to play.” Blatche has since gone on the record to tell his side of the story, which is that he wanted to play but simply didn’t want to hear Flip…

  16. Morrow's present involves sitting, future murky

    Mar 25, 2010, 3:39 PM EDT

    Here’s where it stands right now for Anthony Morrow — he lost his job to a D-Leaguer. To be fair, Reggie Williams is a pretty special D-Leaguer. The guy has game. But Don Nelson had been giving Morrow a lot of minutes until the Memphis game when it suddenly dropped to two minutes. Here’s how…

  17. Ilgauskas explains why he returned to Cleveland

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    In a move that very few people found surprising, Zydrunas Ilgauskas officially signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers this week and played for them against the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night. Ilgauskas has never played an NBA game for a team other than the Cavaliers. He was traded at the deadline for forward Antawn Jamison,…

  18. Getting obsessive with Josh Smith's game-winning dunk

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:28 PM EDT

    Last night, Josh Smith won the internet with a game-winning tip dunk as time expired. This everyone agrees on. What isn’t as clear is which Magic player screwed up to give Smith a clear run to the rim for the game-winner. The general consensus is that Rashard Lewis, the Magic player closest to Smith, messed…

  19. More than one way to win in 2010 free agency

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    As teams around the league in an attempt to clear cap space for this summer’s historic free agency period, the long-standing sentiment is that for many of these teams, it’s LeBron, Wade, Bosh or bust. From a ticket-selling perspective, that’s probably true; a lot of fan bases will consider anything less a failure, and may…

  20. Evan Turner wants to be Brandon Roy

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:04 PM EDT

    It’s everybody’s favorite game this time of year: College prospect X has a game like NBA player Y. John Wall could be a better Derrick Rose. Greg Monroe is a poor-man’s Brad Miller. We love the game. It’s almost always way, way off base, but we love the game. Evan Turner plays it too, and…
