  1. Mark Cuban says not to worry about Mavericks finances, or Ross Perot Jr.

    May 11, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    You knew Mark Cuban was not going to stay quiet. Ross Perot Jr. (not him, but his son), a minority owner of the team, has filed a lawsuit saying Dallas Basketball Ltd., the business that runs Mavericks, is “insolvent and and/or in imminent danger of insolvency.” Cuban responded to the Dallas Business Journal and said…

  2. Tim Donaghy makes wildest claim yet, crosses about eight lines of decency

    May 11, 2010, 6:34 PM EDT

    Tim Donaghy has no credibility. In addition to the fact he is a disgraced referee with a gambling problem who spent time in jail for his crimes, reasonable studies looking into his claims — people that broke down the numbers — showed he was full of crap. The claims he made turn out to be…

  3. It's finally official, Mikhail Prokhorov owns the New Jersey Nets

    May 11, 2010, 6:04 PM EDT

    It’s the dream of fans of so many struggling NBA teams — start the rebuilding plan by getting a new owner. An insanely rich one willing to spend. In New Jersey, step one is complete — the NBA Board of Governors has approved Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov as the owner of the New Jersey Nets.…

  4. Is the sale of the Hornets stuck? Nah, probably just David Stern trying to speed it up.

    May 11, 2010, 5:35 PM EDT

    UPDATE: 5:35 pm: Hornets president Hugh Webber said that the ownership transition will be completed soon. A statement via Mark Spears at Yahoo. “Goal of both parties is still to finalize all the legalities and announce a deal sooner than later… Day to day execution of plans including the search for a head coach has…

  5. LeBron Biographer Buzz Bissinger says he is gone from Cleveland, title or not

    May 11, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    Before we get into this story, let us bask in the glory of Buzz Bissinger being interviewed by one blog, then that story being reported on another blog. Oh, the cruelty. Oh, the journalistic dishonesty. On to our story. Bissinger has a book to sell, LeBron’s Dream Team, the book he co-authored with James about…

  6. Deron may need surgery, miss world championships

    May 11, 2010, 3:04 PM EDT

    According to Ross Siler of the Salt Lake Tribune, Deron Williams has been told to rest his injured wrist this off-season, and Williams hopes the injury will not require surgery. If Williams does end up getting surgery on the wrist, he will likely miss the World Championships this summer.  Williams completely dominated the Jazz’s first-round…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Cavaliers Celtics Game 5: Rajon Rondo is going to think this is a hockey game

    May 11, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    We don’t know much about what the Cleveland Cavaliers have planned to stop the Rajon Rondo layup parade — none of their key players have spoken to the media for a couple days. Mike Brown has chosen not to tell the national media the details of his plans. Smart man. But we can infer, from…

  8. Wesley Matthews is going to get paid by somebody, but will it be the Jazz?

    May 11, 2010, 2:14 PM EDT

    Life’s not all that easy for undrafted players in the NBA, who typically have to fight and claw just to find a place on a roster. That wasn’t the case for Wesley Matthews, who was fortunate enough to be signed by the Jazz after spending four years playing for Marquette. It didn’t take a trip…

  9. 30 years ago today Dr. J was flying

    May 11, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    Dr. J was graceful. The game in the 1970s into the 1980s was evolving, Magic was just bringing Showtime and up tempo to the sport. It was moving from grinding toward beautiful (despite a setback in the 1990s). Guys were really just starting to play above the rim consistently (there had been a few guys,…

  10. Nets would draft John Wall with top pick, are already getting Devin Harris trade calls

    May 11, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    After the season the Nets had, it feels like the only way the karmic scales balance out is if New Jersey wins the draft lottery, if they get the top overall pick in June. The Nets may only have a 25 percent chance at a top spot, but somehow it just seems fair if they…

  11. NBA Playoffs, Magic v. Hawks: Orlando has been obscenely dominant

    May 11, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    The second round series between Orlando and Atlanta wasn’t expected to be terribly competitive, but the Hawks managed to surprise us all by…well, being even less competitive than expected. Not only could they not get a single victory in the series, but due to effort and execution issues from just about every Hawk, they were…

  12. Lionel Hollins agrees to extension to coach Grizzlies

    May 11, 2010, 12:19 PM EDT

    Before last season started, the Memphis Grizzlies were expected to be a laughing stock. The team had talent — O.J. Mayo, Rudy Gay, and Zach Randolph could score. But they weren’t going to share the ball or play defense. Or be any good. Oh, yes they were. Coach Lionel Hollins gets some credit for that.…

  13. Quote of the day, Antawn Jamison still not quite used to being a Cavalier

    May 11, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    “It’s kind of awkward, seeing my name in the wine and gold and Cleveland.” –Antawn Jamison, on how it feels to play for the Cavs in the playoffs after battling Cleveland so many times as a Wizard (via Michael Lee of the Washington Post). Jamison, of course, goes on to express how thankful he is…

  14. Raja Bell names Miami as his fairest free agent destination of them all

    May 11, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Due to a troublesome left wrist injury, Raja Bell has largely stayed off of NBA radar this year. Then again, it’s tough to say how how prevalent a blip on the radar screen Bell would have been even if he had played. Though once regarded as a lockdown defender, Bell’s lateral movement had already begun…

  15. Spurs say they want to keep Parker. If they can is another question altogether.

    May 11, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    As was evident watching the Spurs got swept by the Suns, San Antonio needs to add some young legs and energy to the team, especially along the font line with Tim Duncan. A “stretch four” would be ideal, if you have one of those laying around they could have. However, as we discussed yesterday, helping…

  16. Knicks fans only hope: Become Celtics fans for a night

    May 11, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    Intellectually, Knicks fans know LeBron James is not leaving Cleveland to help rebuild New York. He just applied to change his number next year — something he only needed to do if he stayed in Cleveland. New Yorkers’ heads tell them all hope is lost, despite the fact the Knicks hired a full time guy…

  17. Stan Van Gundy, Magic players talk sweep

    May 11, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    It looked easy, but Stan Van Gundy said it wasn’t as easy as it looked, sweeping the Atlanta Hawks. Although, I think he was just being polite.  

  18. Mavericks get busy: start extension talks with Nowitzki, pick up Barea option

    May 11, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks have some big decisions to make this offseason, some things they should take their time and thing about. But they’ve wasted no time getting started on the things they know they want to do. Dallas has already started negotiations to extend Dirk Nowitzki’s contract, and they will pick up the option on…

  19. Kevin McHale wants to coach the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls fanbase just hangs their heads.

    May 11, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kevin McHale was a smart basketball player, he is a smart man. He knows a good coaching gig when he sees one. And he sees and wants one — the Chicago Bulls. The entire city of Chicago just had a chill run up their spine like they walked out of a lakeside building on a…

  20. Carlos Boozer had a worse day than you

    May 11, 2010, 8:29 AM EDT

    If Carlos Boozer walked around singing some Boomtown Rats — “I don’t like Mondays” — I would not blame him. And I’d give him a wide berth when I can across him. For the fourth game in the series he was utterly outplayed by Pau Gasol. Boozer was 4 of 11 from the floor and…
