  1. Nowitzki isn't rethinking Dallas, he's just frustrated

    Apr 30, 2010, 10:14 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki is a frustrated man. Frustrated at losing. Frustrated again at having a team that excels in the regular season then falls short early in the playoffs. Frustrated to keep answering the same questions about losing out year after year. You’d be frustrated if you were him too. And you can’t take what a…

    Apr 30, 2010, 9:24 AM EDT

    A freak accident Thursday night on the way to the arena almost forced DeJuan Blair to miss the game — and he’s lucky because it could have been a lot worse. The accident left him with a damaged car but did not keep him from playing, Blair told the San Antonio News Express: It was…

  3. Mark Cuban: "I'm not so proud of the NBA."

    Apr 30, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    Memo to Dwight Howard, Stan Van Gundy, Phil Jackson, Matt Barnes, Rasheed Wallace and anyone else trying not to get fined while criticizing the referees: Follow Mark Cuban’s lead.

  4. NBA Playoffs: Jerryd Bayless will not call Grant Hill old

    Apr 30, 2010, 8:21 AM EDT

    Grant Hill looked like he had found the Fountain of Youth right before this series — and it wasn’t just points, he was grabbing boards and creating steals and all the little things the team needs to win. Oh yea, and he’s blocking shots. Just ask Jerryd Bayless.

  5. NBA Playoffs Suns Blazers Game 6: The clock has run out on Portland's tree of woe

    Apr 30, 2010, 1:30 AM EDT

    No shame here. Portland shouldn’t hang their heads for a minute, not for a second. They fell 99-90 to the Phoenix Suns and were eliminated from the playoffs, but they gave the world the fight no one thought they had in them. Without Greg Oden, without Joel Przybilla, and without a healthy Brandon Roy (or…

  6. NBA Playoffs: San Antonio will not be deterred, finished of Dallas in six

    Apr 30, 2010, 12:55 AM EDT

    With the Dallas Mavericks down, the Denver Nuggets on the brink, the Phoenix Suns decidedly mortal, and the Utah Jazz dinged up, the San Antonio Spurs would like to respectfully enter their name for consideration as the non-LA team to beat in the West. They looked every bit of it in their resilient game (and…

    Apr 29, 2010, 6:56 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard was hampered by foul trouble in all four games of the Magic’s sweep against the Charlotte Bobcats. Some of the fouls were of the ticky-tack variety.

    Apr 29, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    Sitting by their lockers after game five, Thunder players admitted it caught them off guard — Kobe Bryant locking down on Russell Westbrook.

    Apr 29, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

  17. Joakim Noah latest Bull to support Vinny Del Negro

    Apr 29, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Players support their coaches. We’ve all seen just terrible college football coaches — guys who needed the axe — having players making public offers of support. Normally you don’t read too much into that. But the public support for Vinny Del Negro by Bulls players — particularly Derrick Rose — has to give the Bulls…

  18. NBA Playoffs: LeBron's hurt elbow is a delightful joke

    Apr 29, 2010, 1:21 PM EDT

    Make no mistake, LeBron’s elbow strain, while not serious, is pretty serious. Not necessarily in the degree of the injury, but certainly in its potential magnitude. The Orlando Magic are a tough out even for a fully healthy Cleveland team, and the Boston Celtics aren’t exactly slouching these days, either. That makes LeBron’s elbow an…
