  1. NBA Draft: Where is the Evan Turner train at now?

    Mar 27, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Evan Turner had a rollercoaster season. Started out with a dominant run that opened eyes. Then he broke his back on a dunk gone bad. Literally. Kid broke multiple vertebrae. He actually came back from that injury, and not only did he come back, he came back in half the time he was supposed to.…

  2. Nets avoid being worst ever in history, proving they may not be worst this season

    Mar 27, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    Way back in November, the New Jersey Nets lost to the Miami Heat on a Saturday evening. It was Jersey’s tenth loss to start the season, capped by a dagger from Dwyane Wade at the buzzer. One of those incredible shots that only the top players in the league can usually hit. And while we…

  3. Carmelo Anthony: game winner

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony is a stone cold assassin. Don’t believe me, ask the Toronto Raptors.

  4. NBA Draft: Xavier versus Kansas State ramifications

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:07 AM EDT

    It was a ridiculous game. Back and forth, double-overtime, hanging on every shot, up and down, pure madness, Gus-Johnson-joygasm, loony-tunes ridiculous game. Xavier and K-State played one of the finest games in the history of the tournament Thursday night, with K-State advancing to the Elite 8 after a 101-96 victory in double overtime. So what…

  5. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 27, 2010, 4:09 AM EDT

    What you missed while watching Cinderella leave the ball… Nuggets 97, Raptors 96: In a just and fair world, Denver does not win that game. Toronto gave their best effort in, well, a long time and outplayed Denver for 28 minutes (starting at the beginning of the second quarter). It was so bad JR Smith…

  6. Carlos Delfino taken to hospital

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    Buck Carlos Delfino had his head and neck stepped on, had to leave the arena on a stretcher has been taken to an area hospital in Milwaukee. Late in the second quarter Delfino went up for a layup that he missed then fell to the ground. Miami’s Udonis Haslem went up for the rebound and…

  7. Phil Jackson says he's likely to coach Lakers next year

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:18 PM EDT

    UPDATE: 8:18 pm: In his pregame talk with the media, Phil Jackson sounded a little less certain, and a little more like this was all tied to winning another title. From the AP story: Lakers coach Phil Jackson says he hasn’t decided whether he’ll return for another season on the Los Angeles bench but he…

  8. Utah Republicans want to dominate capital basketball games

    Mar 26, 2010, 7:28 PM EDT

    Science has shown we tend to elect taller people president in times of trouble. Clearly, this nation is facing some challenges. So, Utah Republicans have pulled out the ultimate weapon — 7’6″ former Nets/Mavericks/Sixers player Shawn Bradley. He is running for the Utah House of Representatives, according to the Desert News. “I had a lot…

  9. Monta Ellis says he's the NBA's second-best player

    Mar 26, 2010, 6:04 PM EDT

    Rolling Stone magazine recently caused a bit of a stir by saying that Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was the second-best player in the NBA this season, behind LeBron James but ahead of reigning Finals MVP Kobe Bryant.  Today, Golden State Warriors guard Monta Ellis said who he thinks the NBA’s three best players are. His…

  10. Arenas avoids jail time

    Mar 26, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:08 pm: Gilbert Arenas’ lawyer, Ken Wainstein, released this statement: “Judge Morin’s decision was fair and measured; it reflected a deep understanding of the relevant facts … Mr. Arenas is grateful to the court and looks forward to serving the community and once again being a force for good in the District of Columbia.”…

  11. Steve Nash's assist to high-five ratio way off

    Mar 26, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

    This is so why I need an intern, so I can assign them trivial, labor intensive and mildly entertaining tasks. Like tracking the number of high fives Steve Nash gives in a game. I assure you, your guess is too low.

  12. No sympathy for Turkoglu in Toronto

    Mar 26, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    It’s really not hard to follow the line of thinking: Hedo Turkoglu was the big off-season acquisition for Toronto; Toronto has had a horrible season that is crumbling right as the playoffs start; ergo, Turkoglu the problem Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. It’s easy logic, and we like easy. So when Turkoglu had…

  13. LeBron says he could win the scoring title if he wanted. Is that news?

    Mar 26, 2010, 1:42 PM EDT

    In post game comments after the Cavaliers win last night, LeBron James said something that has gotten picked up by the media and blogsphere to day. We’ll take Brett Pollakoff’s version from FanHouse (because he and I think alike on this): “If I really wanted to,” James said, “if I really wanted to be the…

  14. Wade, Andy Roddick to play H-O-R-S-E, tennis doubleheader

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:46 PM EDT

    I firmly believe Dwyane Wade can do anything. Why, just a few years ago I saw him carry Shaquille O’Neal and the Heat to an NBA title. He makes the MyTouch phones look as cool as an iPhone. Almost. He can leap tall buildings in a single bound, or at least he can leap Anderson…

  15. Jefferson not shy in his praise of Howard

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

    In the NBA (and all professional sports for that matter), players have a fine line to walk when discussing their opponents. Don’t give them enough credit, and they feel wronged and the comments become bulletin board material. Give them too much credit, and there’s a perceived psychological shift and the comments become bulletin board material.…

  16. Great news: West's season has been quiet

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Delonte West is completely unique in every conceivable way. Beyond his personality, though, West’s life has some equally unique — at least by NBA standards — challenges; West was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a fact which became public in the aftermath of a pretty bizarre incident involving West, a motorcycle, and three guns. The memory…

  17. New Nets owner not exactly Internet savvy

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    NBA players are products of their generation — they communicate heavily via text and send emails, all from their cell phone. Often doing it while at a VIP table in the back of a bar while drinking Gray Goose. New Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov may find it a challenge to relate to his players (via…

  18. OMG Gentry luvs 2 text

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Alvin Gentry is the king of social media among NBA coaches. Which is a very, very small hill to climb — can you really picture Phil Jackson trying to fit his comments in 140 characters? But credit Gentry, he’s on top of it. In addition to having his own twitter account, he’s a texter, he…

  19. Nowitzki doesn't really understand ejection

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki is no Rasheed Wallace. Rasheed does not appreciate the subtle musical mastery of David Hasselhoff. Nowitzki rarely says anything to referees that will get him a technical. He did Tuesday night, getting two quick ones from Bill Kennedy and getting tossed. Nowitzki tells the Star Telegram he doesn’t know exactly what he did.…

  20. Paul Allen issues statement, says nothing

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    UPDATE 10:13 am: The Oregonian’s John Canzano tried to get more information out of Paul Allen last night. Didn’t go so well. But I asked him at the end of the first half, as he headed into the room he uses as an office, if he’d mind going stronger with the comments on Pritchard. The…
