  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. The most predictable game, ever

    Mar 20, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    We all knew the Lakers were going to slaughter the Wolves last night. You, me, your cousin Vinny, your mailman, the stoner who changes your oil at Jiffy Lube, your third grade science teacher, and this guy. What’s funny is that reading ye old blogosphere this morning is how resoundingly according to form the game…

  11. Amar'e Stoudemire… is back

    Mar 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    It’s a sign of how quickly public perception moves that Amar’e Stoudemire was considered a liability as soon as just two years after he was an MVP candidate. Stoudemire had a rough run from the time GM Steve Kerr brought in Shaquille O’Neal, and was considered so much of a trade asset that his value…

  12. By the way, LeBron is good

    Mar 20, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    In the first of roughly a trillion records that will someday belong to LeBron James, Friday night he became the youngest player to reach 15,000 points in his career. His new mark knocks Kobe Bryant out of the top spot by nearly two years (James is 25 years, 79 days). LeBron came into the league…

  13. Jerry Sloan shoves official, may face suspension

    Mar 20, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ah, late March. When winter gives its last gasp, the flowers begin to bloom, baseball season starts to ramp up, and the Jazz start coming apart at the seams. The Jazz, after going on an absurd run throughout the first two months of the year, have returned to their home planet. After a thrilling, come-from-behind…

  14. Is the Pritchard Blazer empire crumbling?

    Mar 20, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    The Blazers were in ruins. The ‘Jailblazers’ moniker was firmly etched upon them. They needed a complete overhaul, and hope seemed lightyears away. Then Kevin Pritchard entered on a rainbow riding a unicorn. He spread his magic across the land and brought in stellar acquisition after stellar acquisition through the draft (with a little bit…

  15. Tyreke Evans leaves game with concussion

    Mar 20, 2010, 2:52 AM EDT

    The accounting of his injuries would make you think Tyreke Evans has taken up MMA fighting. And is not very good at it. From the twitter account of the Sacramento Bee’s Jason Jones: Concussion, chipped tooth, gum laceration and x-ray to check for jaw fracture tomorrow morning for Evans. Damn. Evans got elbowed in the…

  16. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 20, 2010, 2:22 AM EDT

    What you missed while wondering if your office NCAA pool will pay out all the way down to 19th place so you can get your money back… Thunder 115, Raptors 89: The Raptors play no defense and the Thunder are explosive on offense. What more do you need to know? It’s not even that Oklahoma…

  17. Andrew Bynum leaves with Achilles strain

    Mar 20, 2010, 1:35 AM EDT

    UPDATE 1:34 am: Phil Jackson didn’t sound optimistic about Bynum after the game. “We’re a little concerned. He’ll probably miss a little while.” No official word on how long he may miss until he is re-evaluated Saturday. There was no incident, Bynum was just running and felt a couple seconds of sharp pain which lessened…

  18. Joe Johnson: game winner

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:35 PM EDT

    And this is why the man will get paid this summer — uses his strength to create room, then drains the contested game winner against Charlotte. Hawks win! Hawks win!

  19. The hits keep on coming for Knicks

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    When the basketball gods are angry with you, they are without mercy. And the Knicks have really pissed them off. David Lee, who starts as the Knicks center despite being an undersized power forward, was scratched just before the game because of tendonitis in his right knee. Eddy Curry wasn’t ready to play yet because…

  20. Phil Jackson says Jerry Buss knows when to hold them…

    Mar 19, 2010, 10:16 PM EDT

    During his pregame meeting with the press, there was plenty of talk comparing the Lakers organization and its history of success, and what they are trying to build in Minnesota (with former Lakers assistant and still legend Kurt Rambis). Ownership is at the heart of that, and Phil Jackson was candid in a monologue about…
