  1. What can Cleveland prove today?

    Apr 11, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Well, we assume LeBron James won’t be playing today when the Cavs meet the Magic. (But we’ll keep you updated.) And we know that the Magic will be at full strength. So when the Cavs and Magic meet up for a little pre-playoff staredown, what are we going to see? Okay, so you know how…

  2. Things are not peachy in Bulls land

    Apr 11, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    ESPN Chicago is reporting that there was some miscommunication between Bulls front office and Vinny Del Negro in the Bulls loss to the Nets on Friday. Essentially, there had been a decision to not play Joakim Noah more than 35 minutes. Noah hit that limit, and so Vinny Del Negro pulled him. Then apparently player…

  3. Baseline to Baseline, where Kenyon Martin was not the difference

    Apr 11, 2010, 9:10 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were mourning the Arrested Development movie… Spurs 104 Nuggets 85: Kenyon Martin’s back! Kenyon Martin’s back! Oh… that didn’t go quite how we planned. The biggest way the Spurs have improved lately is that they’re catching teams off guard, finally. Those little cuts that seem to come out of nowhere,…

  4. Derrick Coleman made $87 million, now files bankruptcy

    Apr 10, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    This is not the story you think it is. This is not some guy who made more than $100 million and gambled it all away in casinos, then tried to make a desperate comeback to make a little money. Not every NBA story is about hedonism. Some, no many, players try to do the right…

  5. Spurs counted on a Grizzlies win; welcome to a new reality, Manu

    Apr 10, 2010, 7:32 PM EDT

    The Spurs were outworked, out-manned and outdone last night, falling to the Grizzlies. And after such a terrific win against the Lakers last weekend, the Spurs have now lost two in a row and face the Nuggets tonight in what may be a vital game for avoiding the Lakers in the first round, which we’ve…

  6. Rockets GM says Luis Scola isn't going anywhere

    Apr 10, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    There’s a buffet of free agents this summer. A smorgasbord. A plethora. A myriad. There’s quite simply a free agent for anything you need. They slice! They dice! They make french fries, too! But if you were hoping your team might make a swing at Rockets forward Luis Scola, you can kill those dreams, put…

  7. Jazz still never, never on a Sunday

    Apr 10, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    A week from Sunday, the NBA playoffs will commence, with a big doubleheader of first-round games. Because Sunday is the showcase time, the prime time. (Want to bet that the Lakers and Cavaliers are involved even though other series will be more interesting?) But you won’t see the Jazz on Sunday. Not according to team…

  8. Report: Eddie Jordan interested in Rutgers job

    Apr 10, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! is reporting via Twitter that Eddie Jordan has ‘significant interest’ in the vacant Rutgers University head coaching job and may interview for it at the end of the season. Woj goes on to say that Jordan will have ample time to prepare for an interview as he will be let go…

  9. Who gets the Clippers coaching gig? Who wants it?

    Apr 10, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    It has been a Clipper season like so many others. Disappointing, injury filled and ending with an apathetic team sleepwalking its way through the end of the season while the future looks murky. We’ve seen that movie. And the sequels. Yet, Clippers fans want the trailer for next year’s movie. They want to be sold.…

  10. Tracy McGrady now sounding like a veteran player

    Apr 10, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Earlier this week, Tracy McGrady was doing his defiant Allen Iverson imitation — he needed to get touches, he needed to start wherever he was going to play next year. Question if he was a sixth man now and swear words flew out of his mouth Then last night in Orlando, he sounded like the…

  11. With NBA Playoffs looming, Portland should have kept their heads

    Apr 10, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Portland, Oregon may not be a big fancy city, but one thing it does have is incredible basketball fans. Smart, passionate, devoted NBA basketball fans. The collective IQ at a Blazers game is probably higher than the average. But last night it plummeted to Neanderthal levels, and it’s got nothing to do with getting mad…

  12. Former NBAer Isaiah Rider arrested for allegedly assaulting fiance

    Apr 10, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

    Isaiah Rider had an NBA career that mixed an impressive ability to score with an impressive ability to get in trouble off the court and feud with management. His playing career has ended nearly a decade ago, but he can still get in trouble with the best of them. From the Associated Press: Isaiah Rider…

  13. The Sixers are just fun in transition

    Apr 10, 2010, 8:31 AM EDT

    This is as pretty a fast break and dunk as you are going to see. Can’t think of a better way to start a Saturday.

  14. Baseline to Baseline, where it got ugly in Portland

    Apr 10, 2010, 4:16 AM EDT

    What you missed while singing a mournful version of Anarchy in the UK… Magic 118, Knicks 103: Bombs away — 65 three point attempts between the two teams. It’s only a bad shot if you can’t hit it, and tonight everybody could hit it, with the teams shooting 47.7 percent on those threes. Defense, sheefense.…

  15. LeBron James may be done for the season

    Apr 10, 2010, 1:00 AM EDT

    Tonight LeBron James was again wearing an expensive suit on the bench, watching his team lose to the Indiana Pacers. He did the exact same thing the night before in Chicago. Cleveland has two games left. Is LeBron going to suit up for either of those? There is speculation at several places on the Web…

  16. Orlando Magic players will not be getting any days off

    Apr 9, 2010, 7:25 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson and Mike Brown are on the same page — if you have some stars who could use a little rest before the playoffs, get it for them. Don’t risk further injury. Last night both the Lakers and Cavaliers were willing to sacrifice wins — both losing close games on the road — to…

  17. Shane Battier hosted a karaoke benefit. There is video.

    Apr 9, 2010, 6:39 PM EDT

    Would you like to see video of a Karaoke benefit hosted by Shane Battier that includes Battier, Chase Budinger singing Bon Jovi, and Luis Scola singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Of course you would. Here’s a link to the video, courtesy of click2houston.com. (Hat tip goes to Deadspin.)  The benefit raised money for the…

  18. Bosh released from the hospital

    Apr 9, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    The Associated Press is reporting that Raptors forward Chris Bosh was released from the hospital on Thursday and is now back in Toronto. Bosh suffered a nasty-looking nasal fracture due to an inadvertent elbow from Cavaliers forward Antawn Jamison during Tuesday’s game between the Raptors and the Cavaliers. He is expected to miss the rest…

  19. Should the Celtics keep going to Paul Pierce's go-to shot?

    Apr 9, 2010, 5:54 PM EDT

    It’s a shot that every NBA fan has come to recognize. If the game is on the line and the Celtics have the ball, Paul Pierce is likely to go right and utilize his signature step-back jumper from the elbow. It’s a shot Pierce can get whenever he wants, and he’s been successful with it…

  20. Armon Johnson declares for the NBA draft

    Apr 9, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, Nevada guard Armon Johnson will skip his senior season and enter the NBA draft. He plans to hire an agent, which would put an end to his college eligibility.  Most draft experts expected Johnson to stay in college for another season. Draft Express ranks Johnson 55th in their list of…
