    May 5, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    LeBron James’ is having a second MRI on his elbow, and there is nothing funny about that. Unless you’re reading LeBron’s elbow’s twitter account. Seriously. First the news part of this post, because how can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat? LeBron is having a second MRI on his elbow today…

  3. Orlando's rout of the Hawks summed up in 14 seconds

    May 5, 2010, 9:16 AM EDT

    This little video pretty well says it all. Josh Smith starts driving the lane for what is normally a monster dunk, but Dwight Howard is there so he goes with the floater. Howard skies and gets away with goaltending (that ball was on its way down). While Josh Smith is flapping his arms and moaning…

  4. Stan Van Gundy has walked a mile in Erik Spoelstra's shoes

    May 5, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    When asked if he would ever return to the bench and coach the Miami Heat, Pat Riley essentially said he’s be screwed and skewered no matter what he answered. Then he answered it anyway, as the Miami Herald reports. “I might want to coach again, I don’t know,” Riley, 65, said Monday. “If some free…

    May 5, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

  6. NBA Playoffs: Jazz have no answer for Laker frontline

    May 5, 2010, 2:38 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz have the best point guard in basketball. They’ve surrounded him with good outside shooting and talented forwards. They have one of the best coaches in the league and run the flex with precision. They’re a tough, physical team who don’t back down from any challenge.  What Utah doesn’t have is the kind…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Magic Hawks Game 1: Orlando beats Atlanta so bad that Cleveland gets the message

    May 5, 2010, 12:22 AM EDT

    That was THE statement game of the playoffs. Everyone keeps on assuming that we are destined for a Cleveland vs. Los Angeles Finals, Kobe and LeBron. Just like everybody assumed that we were going to get that last year. Orlando is here to remind you they were the best team in the East last year…

  8. John Calipari would like to coach Derrick Rose again in Chicago

    May 4, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT

    We said it before, we’ll say it again: The Bulls can’t fire Vinny Del Negro and then replace him with just another retread coach. If they want to be considered contenders again, want to draw the big free agents, they need to make a splash with the hire. And Phil Jackson took himself out of…

  9. Phil Jackson is clear about where he'll be coaching next season, kind of

    May 4, 2010, 10:05 PM EDT

    There have been some rumblings that this might be legendary coach Phil Jackson’s last season coaching the Los Angeles Lakers. When asked about his future plans during Tuesday’s pre-game press conference, Jackson had this to say: “Do you actually know where you’ll be headed next year?” “Yes.” “Is there a possibility you might be coaching…

  10. No Andrei Kirilenko for Jazz in game 2

    May 4, 2010, 6:59 PM EDT

    Andrei Kirilenko’s calf could be a deciding factor in the Lakers/Jazz second round series… and it’s still not right. Kirilenko will not suit up for game two tonight in Staples Center. He told the Salt Lake Tribune’s Ross Siler and others he might be ready for game three. Maybe. But Kirilenko thought he would be…

  11. Anderson Varejao day-to-day with back spasms

    May 4, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    One of the few Cavaliers to actually play well in Monday night’s disastrous loss against the Boston Celtics was forward Anderson Varejao. Varejao has been quiet over the course of this year’s playoffs, but was beginning to look like himself on Monday night. He was getting to the rim using cuts, grabbing loose balls, and…

  12. Suns will wear "Los Suns" Jerseys as part of Arizona immigration bill protest

    May 4, 2010, 5:18 PM EDT

    This took some real cajones. The controversial immigration bill (SB 1070) just signed into law in Arizona — which allows police making a “legal contact” to demand citizenship papers and makes it illegal not to have them on you — is popular with the majority of voters in the state. Those people are the Suns…

  13. Danny Ainge, doing the little things

    May 4, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

  14. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Jazz Game 2: Can the Jazz find a way to get easy buckets? That or grow taller.

    May 4, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    It was clearly a shock to the Jazz’s system. They came from facing a Denver defense where the players’ main goal is to get back on offense, there is no discipline in the system, nobody really breaking up the passing lanes on Jazz cuts. There were a lot of easy baskets. Then they have to…

  15. NBA All-Star Game coming to Orlando in 2012

    May 4, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    NBA groupies, NBA players and their posses and Mickey Mouse — finally all in one place. Bring the entire family. The new Amway Center in Orlando — set to open this fall — will host the NBA All-Star Game and weekend in 2012. This largely falls in line with the NBA’s effort to give teams…

  17. Kobe vs. LeBron: The rap references mix

    May 4, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are not basketball players, they are cultural icons. They are brands. They are images. And they referenced in rap and hip-hop as much as the chronic. Well, not that much, but a lot. But who has the better references? Kobe with Lil Wayne? LeBron with Jay-Z? Complex put a list…

  18. Stephen Curry, Tyreke Evans get Team USA invites

    May 4, 2010, 2:16 PM EDT

    With some key players hinting they are not going to play this summer, the team USA Roster — and invites to camp this summer in July — is in flux. Today USA Basketball added two star rookies – Stephen Curry and Tyreke Evans — and another young player in Jeff Green to the roster. Then…

  20. Vinny Del Negro is out. Now Bulls: Who you got that's better?

    May 4, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    We’re going to take Bulls General Manager Gar Forman at his word. He stuck with his themes at the press conference this morning where he talked about the firing of Vinny Del Negro. (I watched the conference online). Forman deserves the break, he was thrown out to the wolves to explain this. He was the…
