  1. Don Nelson says he has coached the hands dealt him

    Apr 12, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Don Nelson is Mr. Small Ball. Right? He wants to go small and just run you into the ground. Defense is sort of an afterthought. That’s the system he wants to play. Right. That’s not what he said on KHTK in Sacramento recently. You have got to play the hand that you are dealt.  If…

  2. Shaq, puppets and Rick Springfield

    Apr 12, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    If you’ve wondered what Shaquille O’Neal has been up to during his thumb rehab, we have your answer: Puppeteering. Good luck getting this one out of your head later.  

  3. Soon, the Washington Wizards' dream/nightmare will end

    Apr 12, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    The horror story of the Wizards’ season hardly needs to be recanted here, but it’s easy to forget just how weird the post-trade deadline saga has been. Andray Blatche came out of nowhere to put up monster numbers, Josh Howard busted his left knee and was lost for the season, Al Thornton missed seven games…

  4. Over? Nothing is over until the Celtics decide it is.

    Apr 12, 2010, 12:31 PM EDT

    War’s over man. Father time has won. He has put the Celtics on double-secret probation, they have no title hopes. Right, Paul Pierce, you don’t think the Celtics can realistically win the title, do you? (Via the Boston Herald) “Yeah,” Pierce said. “Without question. Look, there’s no way we can get around the fact that…

  5. Sasha Vujacic with the impressive dunk… didn't see that coming

    Apr 12, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    Sasha Vujacic — yes, that Sahsa Vujacic — made a great fake then dunked over Marcus Camby? When it first happened I pretty much assumed there had been a mass loss of consciousness and rather than seeing the future we all saw some sort of programed Serbian dream. But NBA.com has the video evidence. It…

  6. Stan Van Gundy gives a scouting report on the Cleveland Cavaliers

    Apr 12, 2010, 11:03 AM EDT

    The relationship between NBA coaches, players, and fans is pretty weird. Hardcore basketball fans, by nature, want to know as much as they possibly can about the game. That includes what they can observe with their own eyes, but so much of what fans want to know comes from within: validated trade talk, coaching philosophies,…

  7. David Lee and the summer of waiting

    Apr 12, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    David Lee’s fifth season as a Knick — a franchise where he was far-and-away their best player this past campaign — comes to an end Wednesday. He will get a huge ovation from the Knicks faithful, who appreciate hustle and grit. And then… The waiting is the hardest part. Tom Petty taught us that. Lee…

  8. Robin Lopez could miss playoffs, which means Suns would set early

    Apr 12, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    There are a couple of ways to beat the Suns in a playoff series. One is to simply shut down Steve Nash, and stop his pick-and-roll with Amare Stoudemire. What could be simpler? Not fond of option one? Well, option number two is to pound the ball inside on offense, score in the paint, and…

  9. Martin Gortat's mind in native Poland after crash

    Apr 12, 2010, 9:18 AM EDT

    Written on the Magic’s Martin Gortat’s shoe when he took the court Sunday against the Cleveland Cavaliers was the flight number of the plane that crashed and killed 96 in his native Poland a day before. Written on the tape on Gortat’s wrist was the name Lech Kaczynski, the president of Poland who died in…

  10. Shaq could be back on Wednesday

    Apr 12, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal has been working hard — really, we’re serious, that does happen now and again — and could be back for the Cavalier’s regular season finale. O’Neal had surgery on his right thumb on Feb. 27 after he tore a ligament in a game against the Celtics a couple days prior. He’s been sitting…

  11. Chaos theory reigns over NBA playoff scenarios

    Apr 12, 2010, 2:17 AM EDT

    Game 1,230. The last one of the seemingly eternal NBA regular season. It tips off at 10:30 p.m. (Eastern) on Wednesday night, Utah Jazz at the Phoenix Suns. Until that game ends well after midnight, we are not going to know all the first round playoff matchups. It has just been that kind of season.…

  12. Baseline to Baseline, where Portland persevered

    Apr 12, 2010, 12:20 AM EDT

    What happened Sunday night while you were formulating Tiger Woods jokes… Blazers 91 Lakers 88: That was messed up. Seriously. Just messed up. The final two minutes of this game saw the Blazers with a five point lead only to see Derek Fisher get away with murder on an illegal moving screen as Kobe Bryant…

  13. Bulls move into tie for 8th seed in stampede over Raptors

    Apr 11, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

    Wow, the Toronto Raptors fans really showed up today. Too bad their team didn’t. The Bulls crushed the Raptors in Toronto today to claim sole possession of the 8th playoff seed in the East, 104-88. If ever there was a game that showcased the weakness of the Raptors and the relative strength of the Bulls,…

  14. Denver to add Coby Karl for the rest of the season

    Apr 11, 2010, 5:43 PM EDT

    According to Scott Schroeder, the man, the myth, the legend, and the force behind Ridiculous Upside, the Denver Nuggets will sign 2-guard Coby Karl for the remainder of the year. Karl averaged 19.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.9 assists in an abbreviated season with the Idaho Stampede. The Nuggets are facing a lot of questions…

  15. Spurs' Richard Jefferson thinking about opting out

    Apr 11, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    NBA FanHouse spoke with Richard Jefferson last night and the aging versatile forward who has struggled this season is considering opting out of the last year of his deal and joining the free agent frenzy of 2010. That sound you’re hearing is that of Spurs fans roaring in excitement. Jefferson claims that he’s willing to…

  16. Nets sale could be submarined by previous dealings in Zimbabwe

    Apr 11, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Everything was going so well. They avoided the worst record in league history. They have all the cap space in the world. Nearly all the obstructions to the start of construction on their new arena in Brooklyn have been cleared. And the new owner seems like a billionaire playboy featured on 60 Minutes. Things were…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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,…

  20. 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…
