  1. Maybe we should listen to what LeBron himself said about his plans

    May 14, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    Tons of speculation and talk today — from the highest office in the land on down — on what LeBron James will do next. Maybe we should try listening to what LeBron James says. Not that he says much, but he is the authority on his plans.  

  2. Obama thinks LeBron James would look great in a Bulls uniform

    May 14, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Apparently Barack Obama is willing to risk losing Ohio in the next election. The Baller-In-Chief is a Chicago Bulls fan, so not a shock that he likes the idea of LeBron James playing for his team. ESPNChicago did the snooping. “He doesn’t want to tamper,” senior adviser to the president — and former Bulls season-ticket…

  3. Clevelanders "We Are The World" video to keep LeBron in town. Seriously.

  4. Cavaliers front office just looks, acts stunned

    May 14, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    First, team owner Dan Gilbert stepped up to the mike (well, sort of, there was no podium so he just looked exposed). “Obviously we’re very disappointed…it’s one of those things that you can’t believe it,” he said in a televised press conference. Then General Manager Danny Ferry took the stage and didn’t sound like a…

  5. Mike Brown still the coach in Cleveland. For now.

    May 14, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:50 PM: He may not have it for that much longer, but Mike Brown is still the Cavaliers coach, said team owner Dan Gilbert in a press conference Friday afternoon. “That’s not true,” Gilbert said of the report from Sports Illustrated that Brown has been fired. “Right now we are going through the evaluating…

  6. Tony Parker to skip World Championships; Rodrigue Beaubois to take his place

    May 14, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Coming off a season where injuries kept him out of the lineup and held him back when he was in it, Tony Parker has decided to take the summer off. Parker will not represent France in the FIBA World Championships in Turkey in August. He announced his decision on his Web site. After a long…

  7. Kris Humphries will probably hang with the Nets, soak up some cap space

    May 14, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    While the Knicks have the glitz and glamor of Madison Square Garden, the Nets have undoubtedly the brighter future given each team’s current assets. For the price of Eddy Curry ($11.3 million in 2010-2011), New Jersey has both Devin Harris ($9.0 mil) and Brook Lopez ($2.4 mil). They have Courtney Lee, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Terrence Williams,…

  8. Players union will submit new Collective Bargaining Agreement next month

    May 14, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    When the owners submitted their first proposal of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement to the Players Association at the All-Star Game, it was just dismissed out of hand. The owners went big — asking for basically a hard cap, shorter contract lengths with less money guaranteed, and a request to cut the players share of…

  9. Does being in foul trouble really merit a substitution?

    May 14, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Among the most sacred truisms in basketball is the concept of “foul trouble”; head coaches yank players out of the game without compromise and regardless of import due to the number of fouls the player has acquired relative to how much time is left in the game. Two fouls in the first quarter? Benched. Three…

  10. Mike Woodson let go as coach of Atlanta Hawks

    May 14, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    This is not a shock, it’s not a bad decision. It was even expected in most quarters. A few will cheer (like the half dozen Hawks fans who hang to the end of those blowout games at home). But there should be some sadness, too. Mike Woodson has been let go as the head coach…

  11. John Calipari tweets he is staying at Kentucky. Nobody believes him.

    May 14, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    John Calipari insists he is not leaving Kentucky. Seriously. You can tell he means it because he said it on twitter today. I’ve said many times that I’ve got the best job in the country. Still the speculation runs wild and I can’t stop that… I want to address this with the Big Blue Nation…

  12. Another surgery for Kelenna Azubuike

    May 14, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    The Golden State Warriors’ — remember them? — myriad injuries this season may have been the central mechanism for the D-League’s incredible success in ’09-’10, but they also denied us the privilege of watching a few interesting players do their thing. Kelenna Azubuike is one of those guys. ‘Buike may not be incredibly dynamic, tremendously…

  13. You should fear Tony Allen? Yes, it appears so

    May 14, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    All the talk about that LeBron guy — not to mention the play of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — overshadowed the fact that the Celtics got contributions up and down the roster in this win. And this series. For example, did you know Tony Allen was a ferocious dunker? Neither did we, but he…

  14. Can the Nets make a splashy coach hire?

    May 14, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov wants to make an entrance. The new New Jersey Nets owner will as the tallest representative at the draft lottery next Tuesday (well, unless the Clippers decide to send Chris Kaman, which has the potential for high comedy, so I hope they do). But he also reportedly wants to make a coaching splash…

  15. Next decade of Cavaliers on the line with LeBron

    May 14, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The New York Knicks have spent the last two years doing nothing but clearing cap space. All for him. The New Jersey Nets have a nice young core and a new, insanely rich owner who throws a mean party. That should attract him. The Chicago Bull have become the frontrunner because of their core. The…

  16. Garnett's advice to LeBron: Get out now

    May 14, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett was loyal to Minnesota. Timberwolves fans may not see it that way now, but he could have left much earlier than he did. But he was loyal, he was going to bring a championship there. He wanted to play for just one team, to have that legacy as the ultimate face of a…

  17. LeBron James talks about his future, vaguely

    May 14, 2010, 8:51 AM EDT

    Plenty of post-game questions to LeBron James were about his future plans, and he dodged them with artful skill, but did say they will consider options. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce got to answer LeBron questions too, while Mike Brown got to answer Mike Brown questions.  

  18. Suddenly everybody thinks LeBron is headed to Chicago. Everybody.

    May 14, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Just two weeks ago, all the smart money was on LeBron James staying in Cleveland. He wasn’t going to leave his home, he wasn’t leaving a team on its way to a title. Now those title hopes have been crushed and everybody seems to think he’s going to Chicago. That includes three NBA general managers…

  19. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Cavaliers Game 6: Kevin Garnett can still beat you

    May 14, 2010, 3:26 AM EDT

    At the trading deadline, Cavailers General Manager Danny Ferry was thinking about the Magic. As John Krolik explained long before tip off, Antwan Jamison was brought in to counter Rashard Lewis. Nobody thought about Kevin Garnett. For six games — and particularly in Game 6 — Garnett completely outplayed Jamison, and that was one of…

  20. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: Celtics overwhelm meek Cavs to advance to Eastern Finals

    May 13, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    And so it ends. The number one seed in the East. The number one seed in the NBA. The title favorite, again. The MVP. Cleveland’s best chance for redemption. Swept away in a green tidal wave of Celtic pride. The Boston Celtics out-executed the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-85 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals because…
