  1. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: Phoenix may have lost, but Steve Nash was absolutely bananas

    May 28, 2010, 2:33 AM EDT

    The Suns were right there. They were within striking distance, with plenty left in the tank, and thanks to a miracle three by Jason Richardson, had a real shot at forcing overtime and taking the decisive Game 5. It just wasn’t meant to be. Ron Artest’s put-back crushed those hopes with a few bounces on…

  2. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: And Ron Artest shall save them

    May 28, 2010, 1:32 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson has seen everything. Well, except a player go from goat to hero faster than Ron Artest did on Thursday night, he said. With one minute left and the Lakers up three, Artest took an early-in-the-shot-clock three that literally had half of Staples Center yelling, “nooooo.” Fans scorned him — “Trevor Ariza never would…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Bryant takes over with passing down the stretch

    May 28, 2010, 1:26 AM EDT

    We all know who Kobe Bryant is — one of the most successful, dynamic, creative, and audacious scorers to have ever played in the NBA. Kobe’s passing has always been very good, but he’s generally preferred to take over games with his scoring throughout his career.  Yet in crunch-time on Thursday night, while passing virtuoso…

  4. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5, halftime: Lakers 53, Suns 45

    May 27, 2010, 10:20 PM EDT

    The Lakers have taken a page out of the Boston/Orlando series — they have gotten physical on defense. The result is an 8-point lead at the half. At first this game looked a lot like the first two, as the Suns got off to an early lead. The Lakers made a concerted effort to go…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 6: Celtics banged up but most will go

    May 27, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    At the end of Game 5 Wednesday night, Doc Rivers had to wonder just how many players he was going to be able to suit up for Game 6 Friday. By Thursday afternoon, things looked a lot better. Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who suffered a concussion when hit with an inadvertent Dwight Howard elbow, looks…

  6. Add the Clippers to Kelvin Sampson's suitors

    May 27, 2010, 5:50 PM EDT

    The Bucks’ successful season was sure to raise the individual stock of a number of the principals involved (Think John Salmons earned himself a few bucks in free agency with his tear?), and assistant coach Kelvin Sampson appears to be the first to reap the benefits. Not only do the Cavs seem to have legitimate…

  7. Quote of the Day: Louis Williams on super-teams

    May 27, 2010, 5:36 PM EDT

    “Shoutout to Lebron, d-Wade, Joe Johnson, and chris bosh for trying to create a NBA2k team. Lol. (they would win 80 games)” 76ers guard Louis Williams, via his twitter, in response to the reported upcoming players-only free agency summit between LeBron, Wade, and Joe Johnson. 

  8. Grizzlies GM still backs Randolph

    May 27, 2010, 4:44 PM EDT

    Well, at least somebody still likes Zach Randolph. For now. The day after word came out that Z-Bo has been implicated as a major marijuana supplier to the Indianapolis area, and just hours after word came out from Los Angeles that Z-Bo’s posse (at least) were involved in beating up a man at a strip…

  9. Denver's Birdman has knee surgery

    May 27, 2010, 4:21 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen was not the Birdman during the playoffs. He was battling knee pain and the intimidating, high-flying blocks and dunks were virtually nonexistent. Which really hurt the Nuggets against an undermanned Jazz front line Denver did not exploit. Not surprisingly, he has just undergone knee surgery, according to the Denver Post. He had a…

  10. A few notes from the NBA draft combine

    May 27, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    The NBA draft combine doesn’t get nearly as much coverage as the NFL draft combine, mostly because it’s a much worse predictor of future success in the pros. While plenty of football players can be effective without ever needing to actually touch the football, thus making their physical abilities more important, NBA players need skills…

  11. Rondo: "I feel like I'm the best at what I do"

    May 27, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    Up until games four and five of the Magic series, Rajon Rondo had been absolutely dominating the 2010 Playoffs. He absolutely destroyed the 61-win Cavaliers with transition play, pick-and-roll action, pinpoint passes, and suffocating defense on Mo Williams; even though the Cavs had the MVP on their side, Rondo often looked like the best player…

  12. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: Forget the bright shiny offenses, this one is all about the defense

    May 27, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    It’s not about Kobe Bryant seemingly scoring at will this series. Or Pau Gasol in the post. It’s not about Amare Stoudemire or the awakening of the Suns bench. It’s about defense — that is what has decided every game in this series up to now, it is what will decide Game 5 tonight at…

  13. Zach Randolph allegedly involved in strip club beating

    May 27, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

    Say what you will about Zach Randolph’s defense, but the man knows how to steal headlines, if nothing else (hyuk, hyuk, hyuk). Just hours after it was reported that some fun evidence was discovered linking Randolph to large amounts of marijuana, TMZ (I know, I know) reported that Zach has also been implicated in a…

  14. Cavaliers interested in Kelvin Sampson?

    May 27, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers have some interest in former college coach and current NBA assistant Kelvin Sampson. As of right now, the Cavs are reportedly just doing some “fact-finding” on Sampson, and have not yet zeroed in on Sampson as their next head coach.  Sampson was a college coach…

  15. Today is the day: The Clippers' LeBron James parade

    May 27, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    If you’re in Los Angeles and not chasing around the Kogi trucks, then maybe you want to swing by Staples Center/LA Live around 3 p.m. today for futile ad fascinating Clippers Fans LeBron James parade. The goal of the parade — started by Clippers superfan Clipper Darrell — is to show LeBron how much the…

  16. Hawks owner Gearon the latest to be fined for "tampering"

    May 27, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Well, at least the league is being consistent. Hawks owner Michael Gearon is the latest person to be fined by the league for publicly admitting that he has the common sense to want LeBron James on his basketball teams. The $25,000 fine was assessed because of Gearon’s comments in a recent Atlanta Journal-Constitution article, when…

  17. No three-year deals this time for LeBron, Wade

    May 27, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    It was a brilliant bit of strategy by LeBron James last time he was a free agent — with a six-year deal offered, he negotiated it down to just three years (about $60 million over the three years). It was brilliant because kept his options open. It kept pressure on the Cavaliers organization to build…

  18. Kendrick Perkins second technical rescinded by league, he will play in Game 6

    May 27, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins gets to play another day. The league has rescinded Ed Rush’s technical foul called on Perkins late in the second quarter of Game 5. This means Perkins can play in Game 6 in Boston Friday night. However, if he picks up one more technical foul during the playoffs he will be suspended for…

  19. Michael Jordan to grace the cover of NBA 2k11

    May 27, 2010, 12:54 PM EDT

    The idea of a cover athlete for a sports video game is simple: brainstorm a list of current popular athletes — with emphasis on those with recent relevance — in the target sport, narrow them down based on willingness, costs, marketability, and other factors, then wash, rinse, and repeat every year. With Chris Paul set…
