    Jun 15, 2010, 9:17 AM EST

    We told you yesterday that the Denver Nuggets were looking for a top 10 pick and they were dangling Ty Lawson as the bait. The Indiana Pacers are nibbling, according to Mike Wells at the Indianapolis Star. The Pacers are interested in Lawson, according to a source. The Pacers are willing to give up their…

  2. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: Lamar Odom has the flu

    Jun 15, 2010, 8:49 AM EST

    This time, there may actually be a reason for Lamar Odom’s quiet night. Odom started feeling sick with flu-like symptoms on Saturday and did not feel better during his 8-point performance in Game 5 Sunday. He hoped to be felling better for Game 6, he told Lisa Dillman at the Los Angeles Times. “I haven’t…

  3. Another day, another Tom Izzo update, one not fit for a child's ear

    Jun 15, 2010, 8:21 AM EST

    Like sands through the hourglass, so go the days of watching Tom Izzo decide…. Or not decide as the case may be. There is no decision from Camp Izzo. Literally. Yesterday 16 credentialed media showed up to Tom Izzo’s youth basketball camp but the coach did not speak to them. He did speak to his…

  4. Tim Donaghy continues to claim that he did not fix games

    Jun 14, 2010, 11:28 PM EST

    Tim Donaghy relayed inside information about the NBA to gamblers. He was involved in bets on games he was refereeing. He was sent to prison for 11 months because of what he did. Since he got out of jail, Donaghy has gone on the offensive.  He published a book which claims that he was able…

  5. NBA Finals a matter of perspective

    Jun 14, 2010, 8:54 PM EST

    One of the toughest things to find when analyzing sports, or any other sequence of human behavior, is the difference between causation and correlation. Everyone who spends a year in the United States Marine Corps is a disciplined solider; everyone who spends a year in the Ford Modeling Agency is an attractive model. However, the…

    Jun 14, 2010, 6:24 PM EST

    According to ESPN Draft Insider Chad Ford, the Denver Nuggets are looking for another big man to fill out their rotation, and would like to accomplish that goal by trading into the top 10 of the draft. If they do manage to get their hands on a top-10 pick, they would have their pick of…

  7. Guy making himself some money in the finals: Tony Allen

    Jun 14, 2010, 5:24 PM EST

    There is no better time to be a free agent then after a good run in the playoffs. Just ask Hedo Turkoglu. Boston’s Tony Allen is no Turkoglu — on a number of levels  — but he is a guy about to be a free agent coming off an impressive NBA finals. Not on offense,…

  8. Union says NBA may have been profitable. This lockout is going to suck.

    Jun 14, 2010, 4:06 PM EST

    In his press conference before Game 1 of the NBA finals, David Stern stood by his assertion that NBA owners have been bleeding money. That the business model has to change, that there need to be cutbacks on salaries negotiated. That the league as it operates now is bad business. Manure formed by uncastrated adult…

  9. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Who is the MVP?

    Jun 14, 2010, 3:41 PM EST

    Usually five games into an NBA finals, we have a pretty good idea who is going to get the finals MVP award. This finals? Good luck. You’d have an easier time naming all 11 starters on the Slovenian national soccer team. Really, the only consistently good player on both sides has been Kobe Bryant. The…

  10. Larry Drew's plan in Atlanta: Get the Hawks to share the ball. Good luck with that.

    Jun 14, 2010, 3:15 PM EST

    Larry Drew earned this shot. Make no mistake, he has spent longer on the bench as an assistant than he did in the league as a player. He paid his dues, he no-doubt knows the game. The surprise of him being named the Atlanta Hawks new head coach was that he had spent the last…

  11. You love watching Lakers/Celtics, ratings up 36 percent

    Jun 14, 2010, 2:13 PM EST

    Apparently, you all care more about the Lakers/Celtics outcome than you do The Next Food Network Star. Once again the NBA Finals drew a huge audience Sunday night, a 12.8 overnight rating, the highest game of the series thus far. That number means nearly 17 million people were watching Paul Pierce pretending to be Randy…

  12. Jason Kidd says he'd come off the bench sometimes for Rodrigue Beaubois next season

    Jun 14, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    Finally, everyone in Dallas seems to have figured out that Rodrigue Beaubois is a bird that needs to be set free, not caged on the bench. Even Jason Kidd. During a press call for the 21st American Century Championship, the celebrity golf event coming up next month in Lake Tahoe, Kidd said he wants to…

  13. NBA Draft: Looks like Johnson to Wolves at No. 4 set, Cousins may fall to Kings

    Jun 14, 2010, 12:50 PM EST

    We pretty much know what the top three picks in the NBA Draft were going to be: No. 1 John Wall to the Wizards (as sure a thing as Kobe Bryant being surly in a press conference), No. 2 will be Evan Turner to Philadelphia (unless they trade the pick, which could happen), then at…

  14. NBA Draft: Solomon Alabi could be your 7'1" energy guy

    Jun 14, 2010, 11:55 AM EST

    When drafting a project big man in the first round — someone like Florida State’s Solomon Alabi — the key question has to be work ethic. Is he going to be happy just to make the NBA and luxuriate in the perks that come with the job, or does he genuinely want to get better?…

  15. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 5: Lamar Odom knows his vodka bottles

    Jun 14, 2010, 11:18 AM EST

    Late in the fourth quarter of Game 5, Kobe Bryant stepped away from the free throw line when a fan threw something on the court almost hitting Lamar Odom. Stay classy, Boston. So what was it? The Riverside Press-Enterprise asked Odom (via SLAM). “It looked like a vodka bottle,” said Odom, indicating that it was…

  16. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 5: Boston making the big plays, Lakers not defending

    Jun 14, 2010, 10:51 AM EST

    Boston was talking about the big plays they made while the Lakers were talking about the defense they didn’t play after the game.  

  17. Rebuilding the Raptors

    Jun 14, 2010, 10:23 AM EST

    Toronto has become Cleveland north. “Seriously, we’ll totally remake our roster if you’ll stay. What do you want, a real point guard? We’ll get you one. More help inside? We’re on it. Want a couple more alternate uniforms, too? Whatever you ask. Please just don’t leave.” Toronto is in the midst of a massive roster…

  18. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 5: Boston's signature play

    Jun 14, 2010, 9:53 AM EST

    If Boston closes out this series — if they just keep playing like they have been — then this late-game inbound play will become the constantly-replayed signature plays of the series. Another one in the long history of amazing Celtics plays.

  19. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Phil Jackson plays good cop, Kobe Bryant plays bad cop

    Jun 14, 2010, 9:26 AM EST

    Walking into the locker room after a crucial Game 5 loss, Kobe Bryant could be heard going on an expletive-filled tirade at his team. His comment later to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski was telling. “We’ve regressed since Game 1,” Bryant confessed to Yahoo! Sports. “Our defense belongs on milk cartons in the last two games.” A…

  20. Report: LeBron "100 percent" endorses Izzo as coach

    Jun 14, 2010, 8:25 AM EST

    It has been the biggest lingering question about the Cavaliers pursuit of Michigan State coach Tom Izzo to take their head job: What would LeBron James think? Because right now all things Cavaliers revolve around what LeBron James wants and thinks. When they order new pens for the Cavaliers offices they ask, “What color pens…
