  1. Tracy Morgan courtside at the Knicks. He's going to be there all day.

    Apr 14, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    30 Rock star Tracy Morgan can swing some courtside New York Knicks tickets. Because he’s Tracy Morgan, 30 Rock star. For fun, the Knicks mic’d him up, and it turns out he talks a little more than Jack Nicholson does on the other coast. Tracy Morgan is going to be at this all day. All…

  2. Rod Benson's time with the D-League is over

    Apr 14, 2010, 1:29 PM EDT

    Rod Benson is arguably the biggest star in the D-League. He’s not the best player in the league or the most productive, but in terms of organically created stardom from within the minor league system, no player can compare to the man known as Boom Tho. He’s been in the D for four years, and…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Let the Phil Jackson mind games begin

    Apr 14, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    The Lakers and Thunder do not even tip off their playoff series until Sunday, but Phil Jackson has already started working the referees. The Lakers have a game tonight against the folded tent of the Clippers, but nobody is asking about that. It’s all about the up-and-coming Thunder. And Jackson has gotten a jump on…

  4. Statistical points of comparison for every team in the NBA playoffs

    Apr 14, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    Even though the dynamics that make up NBA teams are completely unique based on players, coaches, and the team’s overall season experience, it’s helpful to be able to compare current NBA teams to those past. The ultimate goal, of course, is to determine a team’s probable success (or lack thereof), and Kevin Pelton of Basketball…

  5. John Kuester will be back to coach Pistons next season

    Apr 14, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    If you take the best chefs in the world, then tell them they have to cook a gourmet meal from food they find in a gas station market, you are going to get some crap to eat. You cannot change the hand you are dealt. We have no idea if John Kuester is a good…

  6. Wilson Chandler was never quite healthy, will have another fun-filled surgery

    Apr 14, 2010, 12:27 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler’s third season in the NBA had a pretty painful opening act; his production was down across the board, and his shooting efficiency in particular — .405 FG% and .308 3FG% in November — dropped off significantly from his breakout 2008-2009 campaign. A big part of that was Chandler’s gradual recovery from off-season ankle…

  7. Larry Brown: I'm not coaching in Philly, are you kidding?

    Apr 14, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    The best part of Larry Brown, coaching vagabond, is that wherever he is that day is the place he’s convinced will be the last stop on the tour. He’s really into serial monogamy. And today he loves Charlotte. Despite the rather odd rumor that he would be coming to fill the soon-to-be vacant coaching spot…

  8. Debate over resting LeBron nearing new levels of absurdity

    Apr 14, 2010, 11:36 AM EDT

    LeBron James is the best player on the planet, and as such people really, really like seeing him play. Me too, as I delight in watching basketballing and basketbally things, especially when that basketballing is done by LeBron James. That said, with championship-caliber teams there should be an implicit understanding between franchise and fan: if…

  9. Del Curry not allowed to vote in the Rookie of the Year race

    Apr 14, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    The NBA is a family-first organization. So naturally, when Del Curry, former NBAer and current Bobcats broadcaster empowered with an award ballot, had a chance to vote for Steph Curry, his son, as the rookie of the year, they removed his ability to put family first. Hyuk-hyuk-hyuk. From the Associated Press: NBA spokesman Tim Frank…

  10. NBA Playoffs: You'll go to bed tonight before the seedings are set

    Apr 14, 2010, 10:39 AM EDT

    We told you a couple days ago: The last game to tip off this NBA season, Utah at Phoenix at 10:30 Eastern tonight, will still play a big role in determining who plays whom in the first round of the NBA playoffs. What, you thought we were kidding? We would never do that to you.…

  11. Don Nelson actually wants to return as Golden State Warriors coach

    Apr 14, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    It has just been assumed that this was Don Nelson’s last season — he’s the NBA’s all-time winningest coach but has seemed to have lost the passion for the job. He drinks with players. He has alienated key players (Monta Ellis) and woefully misused others (Brandan Wright, Anthony Randolph, Anthony Morrow, to name a few).…

  12. Doc Rivers may step down as Boston Celtics coach after season

    Apr 14, 2010, 8:44 AM EDT

    It’s not easy coaching in Boston, where a 50-win season and a four seed in the playoffs is considered a failure by many. The glow from the 2008 title has worn off and fans are angry with everyone from the bench players to the owner. Doc Rivers may have had enough of it and told…

  13. Carlos Boozer suffers rib cage injury, MRI Wednesday

    Apr 14, 2010, 8:26 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz are not going to go very far in the playoffs without Carlos Boozer. They will find out today if they will have to try. Boozer left Tuesday night’s game in the second quarter, went back to the locker room and did not play another minute in the Jazz’s win. The injury is…

  14. Baseline to Baseline, where the Bulls still give the Celtics fits

    Apr 14, 2010, 3:07 AM EDT

    What you missed while wondering, “What can I do to speed up my heart attack…” Bulls 101, Celtics: 93: No Bulls management punched each other in the making of this recap. Derrick Rose just dominated Rajon Rondo and got him in foul trouble. Rondo is the speed and youth of the Celtics, without him they…

  15. Report: Chicago Bulls VP John Paxson pushed Vinny Del Negro

    Apr 13, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

    Things are a little tense in the Chicago Bulls front office. According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the recent tension between Bulls Vide President John Paxson and coach Vinny Del Negro turned physical. After a loss to the Phoenix Suns on March 30, an irate Paxson walked into the coach’s office at the United Center and…

  16. The other CBA battle: big market vs. small market owners

    Apr 13, 2010, 7:18 PM EDT

    When talking about what seems like the inevitable 2011 lockout — it’s not inevitable, but all sides involved seem to think it is, therefore it is — it’s often portrayed as the players union vs. the owners. But the owners are not a united front. Big market and small market owners do not seem to…

  17. Knicks could be interested in Shaun Livingston

    Apr 13, 2010, 6:06 PM EDT

    According to the twitter account of newsday.com’s Alan Hahn, the New York Knicks could be interested in signing Shaun Livingston this off-season. The former #4 overall pick had a strong finish to the season with the Wizards, averaging 16.3 points and 6.1 assists per game on 64% shooting in April. It was the type of…

  18. Dunk of the night: Gerald Henderson on Devin Harris

    Apr 13, 2010, 5:22 PM EDT

    The Bobcats’ gritty defense and 31-9 home record have propelled them into the playoffs, and they may prove themselves to be a tough out in the first round. They’ve also managed to lose not one, but two games to the NBA’s worst team. On Monday night, Gerald Henderson and co. managed to get some revenge.

  19. Kings go country with Jon Brockman

    Apr 13, 2010, 5:04 PM EDT

    He is the Brockness Monster. He’s had a pretty nice rookie season. He is not a country singer. But Jon Brockman is pretty funny. (via The Baseline)

  20. Dwyane Wade is no Frank Sinatra, turns down Gotti meeting

    Apr 13, 2010, 4:52 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade’s life is just like yours and mine. I’m sure this happened to you a couple weekends ago: You’re just hanging out an exclusive Manhattan club (M2) with your bodyguard protecting you and your posse when the grandson of a famous mob boss wants to talk to you. When it happened to Wade, however,…
