  1. Breaking news: Mike D'Antoni doesn't totally hate defense

    Mar 22, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    The consumption of sports is so widespread that broadcasts often create inbred opinion; two different people watch the same broadcast, inevitably assume some of the ideas and views expressed by broadcasters as their own, and mistake the other person’s confirmation of that view as legitimate when in fact they’re merely confirming on the basis of…

  2. Winderman: Draftees wait until 2011, no checks until 2012

    Mar 22, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    As the field of 65 shrinks, expect the field of 60, namely the June 26 NBA Draft, to significantly expand. While the preliminary results still favor the college game, with Greg Monroe vowing to return to Georgetown and Derrick Favors still undecided on another season at Georgia Tech, figure on plenty of influence from agents…

  3. Jordan builds bridges, Bob Johnson goes River Kwai

    Mar 22, 2010, 10:39 AM EDT

    Michael Jordan wrote an open letter to the people of Charlotte Sunday, basically saying “give me a chance.” He talked of commitment to the area, of Carolina roots and passion. It’s what you say to a city when you are trying to build a bridge. Particularly to the business community — fans in the upper…

  4. LeBron ready to sign for next year – with Nike

    Mar 22, 2010, 9:43 AM EDT

    In a move that will surprise nobody from he Kobe Bryant puppet on down, LeBron James isn’t going anywhere next season. In terms of a show contract. There is a greater chance of LeBron playing for the Clippers next season than there is of him leaving Nike. You can question if Cleveland put enough around…

  5. Dwight Howard is Little Rasheed Wallace

    Mar 22, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    If you looked at him from behind, squinted real hard and added a bald spot, you could almost swear Dwight Howard is Rasheed Wallace. Yea, maybe not. But apparently NBA referees think so, because Howard is pocking up technicals at a vintage Rasheed-like pace this season. One more and Howard will have 16 — something…

  6. The Paul, Collison experiment about to begin

    Mar 22, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Great. Just what the New Orleans Hornets needed — another eye-popping point guard. The Hornets roster has more than its share of holes, but the point was not one of them. They already had the best in the league. Every other spot on the floor you could ask questions, but not point guard. So when…

  7. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 22, 2010, 1:35 AM EDT

    What happened while you were partying/rioting about health care reform… Hawks 119 Spurs 114: This was a classic. Two teams that had answers for every big shot the other one hit. Al Horford was considered a strange All-Star pick but he looked like it in this game. Monster plays down the stretch including a massive…

  8. Would the Wolves choose Darko over Kevin Love?

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    The Wolves have made their fair share of interesting decisions in the first year under David Kahn. Drafting Ricky Rubio when there were indications he may not elect to cross the ocean. Then drafting another point guard in Jonny Flynn. Then signing another point guard in Ramon Sessions. And that’s before you get into signing…

  9. LeBron makes rare public statement regarding 2010

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    If you’re a fan of athletes handling their marketing well, you have to be impressed with how LeBron James has handled the questions surrounding his future this summer in the Free Agency Summer of Doom. Even if you’re absolutely convinced one way or the other on him leaving or staying, he’s done a fantastic job…

  10. Deron Williams: Chicken Dancer

    Mar 21, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    And now, apropos of nothing, is Deron Williams doing the chicken dance. Let’s set the stage. The Jazz put an outright beatdown on the Hornets last night, especially since David West was ejected after a questionable flagrant two and Chris Paul’s still not back. So Deron Williams got to ice his shoulder and arm, and…

  11. Ilgauskas able to re-sign with Cavs Monday

    Mar 21, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas comes home this week. Using one of the most controversial loopholes in NBA dealings today, the Cavs traded Ilgauskas to Washington in return for Antawn Jamison. After being bought out by the Wizards, Ilgauaskas could have signed with any team outside the Cavs or waited till March 22nd. March 22nd is tomorrow, and…

  12. How much did Kansas loss hurt Aldrich and Collins' draft stock?

    Mar 21, 2010, 11:06 AM EDT

    Yesterday was not a banner day for the University of Kansas basketball team. They fell from being the prohibitive favorite to win the title to being the victim of what many are calling the biggest upset in NCAA history. Their star, Sharron Collins leaves shrouded in failure after winning the title in 2008, but failing…

  13. The players' union ain't buying what Stern's selling

    Mar 21, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    At All-Star Weekend, Commissioner Stern delivered his state of the league address. In it, he fired the opening salvo in the battle that will be fought in the boardroom and in the media over the 2011 CBA, by claiming on behalf of ownership that they will lose $400 million this year. The union, however, is…

  14. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 21, 2010, 1:26 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were setting your bracket on fire… Bulls 98 Sixers 84: Welcome back, Derrick Rose. The Bulls snapped a ten game losing streak behind Rose, who Jrue Holiday couldn’t stop if he was Doctor Octupus. The good news for the Sixers is Marreese Speights got some burn and showed up with…

  15. Are the Celtics "back"?

    Mar 20, 2010, 9:29 PM EDT

    It’s been four games since the Cavaliers outran the Boston Celtics, since the “When are they going to turn it on?” panic button hit its zenith. Four games. Four wins. The last two actually matter, road games against two Texas teams, including a come from behind win over a Mavericks team at full strength Saturday…

  16. Kelenna Azabuike will likely not opt out

    Mar 20, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Matt Steinmetz of CSN is reporting that Kelenna Azubuike will not opt-out for next year, keeping him with the Warriors for approximately $3.3 million. Azubuike told Steinmetz, “That’s the logical thing to do.” It’s a deep free agency class, and Azubuike could end up getting lost in the shuffle, even with as many teams with…

  17. Free Agency 2010: The LeBron-Johnson possibility

    Mar 20, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Ric Bucher of ESPN has a report today including information from a source discussing LeBron James and the 2010 Free Agency Summer of Doom. The source contends that Hawks guard Joe Johnson may be the King’s preferred partner in crime if he heads beyond the sunny gates of Cleveland. Bucher outlines how Johnson would absorb…

  18. More good news: No tear for Bynum's Achilles

    Mar 20, 2010, 4:13 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum hasn’t made it through a season the past two years without a major injury. It looks like he may have dodged a bullet and be on his way to a (mostly) full season. We told you last night Bynum suffered what was diagnosed as a strained Achilles tendon. The sound you hear whooshing…

  19. Indianapolis, Kansas City, and the changing arena economy

    Mar 20, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    What do you look at to tell if a team is doing well? Attendance, right? After all, the way to tell how good a team is if they have fans coming to games.  Low attendance means you’re not making money. Sure, the Clippers are the exception, but it’s L.A. Everything’s overpriced. But attendance is still…

  20. Good news: X-rays negative for Evans' jaw

    Mar 20, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    The NBA world had one eye on next year’s rookies today and one eye on the probably Rookie of the Year this year. Last night we let you know about Tyreke Evans’ concussion and other head injuries sustained against the Bucks. There was rampant concern that the Kings were going to announce that Evans was…
