  1. Bulls reach out to Phil Jackson through back channels

    May 25, 2010, 1:09 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson returning to the Chicago Bulls? It’s a long shot. It’s not like he left Chicago on the best of terms. Plus, he would have to leave a title-contending team in the warm-weather city where his once-posed-for-Playboy girlfriend lives to move to a cold-weather city where he would be chasing past glory. But the…

  2. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 4: Magic fight off the icy cold hands of Celtics to stay alive

    May 24, 2010, 11:48 PM EDT

    You didn’t think it was gonna be that easy, did you? Actually, for a second there? We all probably did. The Orlando Magic staved off elimination Monday night with a gutsy 96-92 overtime win in Boston, avoiding a sweep and sending the series back to Orlando for Game 5. It was the first time all…

  3. Knicks Eddie Curry ordered to pay $1.2 million debt

    May 24, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    Eddie Curry is living large. Too large. How large? Try a $17,000-a-month suburban New York home, a $6,000-a-month personal chef and a dozen cars. Jay-Z thinks that is large. So did the judge that ordered Curry to pay $1.2 million in personal loan debt on Monday. Curry made $10.5 million last year, an exorbitant sum…

  4. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic halftime: Magic 51, Celtics 47

    May 24, 2010, 10:15 PM EDT

    That was the best half the Magic have played this series. For the first time in four games, there was a real passion from the Magic, which explains the 52-47 lead. Orlando’s stars are stepping up. Dwight Howard was 6 of 8 shooting in the first half, while Jameer Nelson was 4 of 7. The…

  5. Cavaliers' players step up for Mike Brown, just not the player that matters

    May 24, 2010, 6:38 PM EDT

    Mike Brown is getting some love from teammates the day after he was kicked to the curb despite two 60-win seasons in a row. The Cleveland Plain Dealer asked around and Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Mo Williams had their former coach’s back. Big Z, take it away: “I have nothing but good things to say about…

  6. NBA.com Store finds: team logo toasters

    May 24, 2010, 4:59 PM EDT

    Want to eat what Michael Jordan eats for breakfast? What Gerald Wallace eats? It ain’t Wheaties, my friend. It is toast. Bread emblazoned with the logo of the Charlotte Bobcats. Burned in by special toaster. I’m sure Kobe Bryant eats from the Lakers toaster. LeBron James eats from the Cavaliers toaster — for now. Erick…

  7. Greg Oden couldn't join his teammates at the game, but could be at the pool

    May 24, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    You know, it’s rough being Greg Oden. I mean, the guy goes through a lot. He’s constantly compared to one of the greatest players in the NBA, all because he was selected ahead of Durant in the draft (like you’re supposed to be better than the players selected after you, hah!). He deals with more…

  8. Canadian television, where the best NBA player cameos happen

    May 24, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    If you’re a young Canadian trying to learn the game of basketball, who would be your idol? Who would you want to teach you the game? Randy Foye of the Washington Wizards, of course. Bless FreeDarko for finding this gem (and so many other reasons), off a Canadian television show called Wingin’ It. Pure gold.

  9. You're going to need more than a broken nose to stop Steve Nash

    May 24, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    Steve Nash has a broken nose. Officially, he has “a minimally displaced nasal fracture with displaced cartilage,” as Yahoo’s Mark Spears tweeted. That is still a fancy way of saying he has a broken nose. He will have to have a minor procedure to correct it, but he is not going to miss any game…

  10. Bulls make push to interview Celtics defensive mastermind Tom Thibodeau

    May 24, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Remember how the Bulls fired Vinny Del Negro and were going to get an experienced head coach, one with NBA playoff experience? That or Tom Thibodeau, apparently. With Thibodeau one of the finalists for the New Orleans Hornets job, the Bulls have stepped up their pursuit of the Boston Celtics defensive mastermind, according to the…

  11. NBA Playoffs Lakers Suns: Phil Jackson is thinking about sitting Andrew Bynum, but it won't help

    May 24, 2010, 2:06 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:06 pm: Both Andrew Bynum and Phil Jackson said after Lakers practice on Monday that Bynum will play and start in Game 4. Again, not a shock. Bynum’s knee is not getting better or worse by playing, it’s a matter of pain management. A game or two off is not going to help him.…

  12. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 4: Is there any hope for Orlando? Who can be their Dave Roberts?

    May 24, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT

    One beloved Boston sports team — the Boston Bruins — just lost a series where they were ahead 3-0. The Philadelphia Flyers came back and spanked them. So there it is Orlando, your ray of hope. It’s not much of one, it’s not even the same sport, but your team hasn’t given anybody much reason…

  13. Dan Majerle just wants to coach, likes the Chicago job just fine

    May 24, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Dan Majerle threw his hat into the ring for the Sixers coaching job, which is a step in the coaching dance that can be loosely interpreted to mean, “I’ll take any head coaching gig, no matter how mediocre.” So naturally, when faced with the possibility of coaching the Chicago Bulls next season — who not…

  14. NBA Draft 2010: Minnesota looking hard at Syracuse's Wesley Johnson

    May 24, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    It is possible that the Minnesota Timberwolves will move down in this draft — some team in love with DeMarcus Cousins could offer a sweet package to move up, and if so the Wolves would be hard pressed to turn that down. But if the offers are not so sweet, how about them taking the…

  15. NBA Free Agency: Rudy Gay could be the Grizzlies' latest huge mistake

    May 24, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    Among this year’s free agent class, there are the can’t-miss prospects (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh), the impressive consolation prizes (Joe Johnson, Amar’e Stoudemire), and then a third, less illustrious subgroup: those destined to be overpaid. Carlos Boozer seems a likely candidate as any, as a team with cap space and money to spare…

  16. William Wesley, the most powerful man you don't know

    May 24, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    The rumors are LeBron James and John Calipari are being packaged as a pair. Packaged by William Wesley, a man usually just described as an NBA power broker. Wesley works for CAA and is very tight with both men. But you can bet that wherever LeBron James lands, whoever his coach will be, when James…

  17. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns: Game 3 was a nice win for Phoenix, but can they do it again?

    May 24, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    One of the things that made the second round of this year’s playoffs so bizarre was the prevalence of sweeps. It’s incredibly difficult for any NBA team to sweep another regardless of talent, because beating the same opponent four times in a row requires such an incredible level of focus and consistency. It just doesn’t…

  18. Grant Hill: Doug Collins could make the Sixers a playoff team next year

    May 24, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Grant Hill has been around a long time and played for a lot of coaches. While Mike Breen and the ESPN crew make it sound like he was old enough to play for Red Auerbach, he’s not been around quite that long. But he has been around long enough to play for Doug Collins in…

  19. Like every other Bulls fan, Barack Obama likes the look of LeBron James in Chicago

    May 24, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    How much pull does Barack Obama have in getting LeBron James to Chicago? Well, probably less than William Wesley. But he does want him there, and he said as much to Marv Albert in a television interview set to air on TNT on Tuesday night (at 5 p.m.). “You know, like I said, I don’t…
