  1. Avery Johnson's new gig: And now for something completely different

    Jun 11, 2010, 11:22 AM EDT

    When Avery Johnson got his new coaching job — a coveted one, head man for the New Jersey Nets — the natural thing to do was to bring up his coaching record in Dallas. Three plus seasons, .735 winning percentage, two 60 plus win seasons, took a team to the NBA finals. But that job…

  2. Sixers hire Austin Toros' coach Quin Snyder as head of player development

    Jun 11, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The 2009-2010 season was already a fantastic one for the D-League, with a record number of NBA call-ups, incredible success for individual players like Reggie Williams and Anthony Tolliver, and record attendance and viewership. It seems the 2010-2011 season will pick up right where this year left off, as there’s already one notable D-League call-up…

  3. The Wizards aren't even working out Evan Turner

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    John Wall is a can’t-miss prospect. He’s going to be a star in the NBA for a long, long time, and he’s immensely talented. So much so that the only suspense between the draft lottery and the draft itself concerned whether or not the Wizards could possibly talk themselves out of taking Wall with the…

  4. Leonsis won't be bringing back the 'Bullets' moniker

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:09 AM: Leonsis further clarified his stance on a potential name-change on his blog (also courtesy of Mike Prada): “In regards to a name change of the team, we have a lot of work to do right now on re-crafting the team itself, focusing on the draft, our number 1 pick, free agency, selling…

  5. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: The Big Baby and Nate show

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:12 AM EDT

    Here’s a clip from the best press conference of the playoffs — the Big Baby and Nate show. Also Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson talking about the Celtics bench and their energy.  

  6. Tom Izzo to decide on Cavaliers job. Someday. In the near future.

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    It was probably a lot like those time share sales pitches you suffered through to get those two free days in Las Vegas. Tom Izzo has traveled to Cleveland and heard their hard-sell sales pitch. He talked with their people and toured the facilities (which he had been at before) while his family toured the…

  7. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: If he's going to play like that, Big Baby can drool all he wants

    Jun 11, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

    Make no mistake — Big Baby slobbered. He drooled. Just like a baby. On national television. For all the cameras to catch. He doesn’t really care. And if he can play like that again in Game 5, the entire city of Boston will drool right along with him. (I think the Southies already do.) “Let…

  8. Hawks brass meeting to figure out coaching decision

    Jun 11, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    The Atlanta Hawks appear ready to go get their coach… after just one more meeting. Nearly a month after they fired Mike Woodson and less than a week before the NBA Draft, the Hawks owners and front office are going to sit down today and decide who they want as a head coach. That according…

  9. Quote of the day, where the Celtics are doing movie promos

    Jun 11, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    “We’re like Shrek and Donkey.” –Nate Robinson on him and Glen “Big Baby” Davis.

  10. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 4: Blogbook drools like a Big Baby

    Jun 11, 2010, 3:48 AM EDT

    A collection of thoughts on Lakers-Celtics Game 4… If Glen Davis is a Drunken Seal, tonight was the big show at Sea World and everyone clapped for him. Davis was a beast, and his ability to create shots against the Lakers’ bigs was pretty much the difference in the game. Davis’ emotion seems like a…

  11. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics: Pierce comes alive as Celtics even series

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:43 AM EDT

    In game four, the stifling defense of the Boston Celtics was once again able to keep the Lakers from doing what they wanted to do on the offensive end. For the second game in a row, the Lakers had trouble establishing their post game (Bynum being limited to 12 minutes certainly contributed to this), and…

  12. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: Bynum sits, game gets physical and it feels like 2008 again

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:01 AM EDT

    These Lakers were different. It’s what we heard, it’s what we saw. These Lakers were not soft, they would not roll over for the Celtics like two years ago. Right? And they didn’t. For three games. Then Andrew Bynum sat, his knee clearly worse for the wear. Then Game 4 got physical. Then for the…

  13. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4, halftime: Lakers lead after ugly half of basketball

    Jun 10, 2010, 10:24 PM EDT

    There comes a point in a seven-game series when the games get ugly. Teams have watched the film, lived the other team for a few games and they now anticipate everything. They know where the next pass is headed, the next cut is going. They can stop things before they happen. We are there in…

  14. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: Andrew Bynum will play, now much remains to be seen

    Jun 10, 2010, 7:44 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:44 pm: Andrew Bynum is out warming up with the team and is going to start Game 4 for the Lakers. However, there are questions within the Lakers staff and locker room about how long he can go and how effective he can be. The Celtics may want to expose him and attack, although…

  15. Phil Jackson says he will decide about next year within week of the finals ending

    Jun 10, 2010, 6:25 PM EDT

    The thing is, Phil Jackson doesn’t really know what Phil Jackson is going to do next year. He may have a leaning, but he’s not telling T.J. Simers no matter how many times he asks. His return to the Lakers has always been more about his health than salary or other opportunities, and he said…

  16. Diddy manages to make LeBron-to-NY campaign more ridiculous

    Jun 10, 2010, 5:50 PM EDT

    With all the rampant attention-grabbing that’s been going on under the guise of people trying to get LeBron James to play for their team next season, it’s only logical that Sean “Diddy” Combs was going to get involved at some point.  Earlier today, the Rapper/Fashion Designer/Media Mogul tweeted that if LeBron decides to play for…

  17. J.R. Smith's "gambling money" stolen

    Jun 10, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    We already knew that J.R. Smith didn’t have the best first-round series. Not only did the Nuggets lose to the Utah Jazz, but Smith only shot 37% from the floor over the course of the series. As it turns out, Smith’s problems during the Utah series didn’t just occur on the court.  On April 28th,…

  18. Mike Fratello wants to coach next season

    Jun 10, 2010, 4:51 PM EDT

    It’s been a good couple of months for former NBA coaches who became TV analysts. Doug Collins was given the head coaching job in Philadelphia. Avery Johnson’s hiring was announced by the Nets today. Multiple teams have all but begged former Rockets coach and current beloved curmudgeon Jeff Van Gundy to coach their teams next…

  19. Wizards ready to embrace Gilbert Arenas, as if they have a real choice

    Jun 10, 2010, 4:43 PM EDT

    Ted Leonsis, the new owner of the Washington Wizards, wants to give Gilbert Arenas another chance. He’s said it before, and he said it again during his introductory press conference Thursday. The brilliant Dan Steinberg at the D.C. Sports Bog (part of the Washington Post) has the quote. “There will be a time when we…
