  1. Mark Cuban says he'd be interested in LeBron as a Maverick, NBA investigating as tampering

    May 20, 2010, 11:31 PM EST

    UPDATE 11:27 PM: That didn’t take long. Well, of course it didn’t, if there is one thing the NBA league office seems to love it’s a good investigation. The NBA is officially investigating Mark Cuban’s comments to see if they are tampering, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Brian Windhorst. No timetable for a decision.…

  2. Referee Joe DeRosa suspended for tossing ball to fan

    May 20, 2010, 6:31 PM EST

    At halftime of Game 2 in the Celtics/Magic series, referee Joe DeRosa walked over to the scorer’s table to pick up the crew’s jackets, found a heckler waiting for him there and at one point tossed the guy the ball. Turns out, that’s enough to get you suspended. DeRosa has been suspended from the next…

  3. Report: Mike Brown to be fired in next few days

    May 20, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    Everyone knows the firing of Mike Brown is coming. Debate whether it is warranted or not all you want, the finality of it has never really been in doubt. It was just a matter of timing. According to NBA.com’s Sam Amico the axe could fall as early as Friday and will happen by Sunday. That…

  4. After the NBA Lottery screwed them, where do the Nets go from here?

    May 20, 2010, 5:00 PM EST

    So, that didn’t go so well for the Nyets. The franchise savior will be headed to Washington, or, if they lose their minds, Philadelphia. The odds of landing LeBron, Wade, Bosh have just shrunk to tiny proportions, and they’re looking at the third pick in a two-superstar-pick draft. That’s a pretty big fall on the…

  5. Amar'e Stoudemire's defense remains a problem

    May 20, 2010, 4:44 PM EST

    The Phoenix Suns made the right move when they held onto Amar’e Stoudemire at this year’s trade deadline. Amar’e is absolutely one of the best offensive big men in basketball, and he’s been a crucial part of Phoenix’s run to the Western Conference Finals. However, now that Phoenix has reached the Western Conference Finals, it’s…

  6. Dallas fans want LeBron, make a website

    May 20, 2010, 3:50 PM EST

    Now it’s not just the teams with cap space who are hoping LeBron James will play for them next season. Dallas Mavericks fans have started up lebrontothemavs.com, which features a photoshop of LeBron in a Mavericks jersey, audio (that I found no way to turn off) of a LeBron-to-Dallas song made by fans, and some…

  7. NBA Playoffs Magic v. Celtics: J.J. Redick making it tough for Magic to keep him off the floor

    May 20, 2010, 3:40 PM EST

    Although the Orlando Magic have struggled at times in their series against the Boston Celtics, they need not despair. It’s never good to drop two games on your home court in the playoffs, especially in consecutive contests in the series’ opening games. Still, Orlando has lost two games by a combined seven points against a…

  8. Lest you had any doubt, Flip Saunders loves him some John Wall

    May 20, 2010, 2:30 PM EST

    Yesterday, Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders shot down the asinine rumor that the Wizards would consider trading the number one overall pick this year. Some teams might have, but not the Wizards. Now, he has gone on the the Junkies on 106.7 the Fan in Washington D.C. and professed his love of John Wall by…

  9. Evan Turner thinks he could be first pick, but he'll take Philly

    May 20, 2010, 1:51 PM EST

    John Wall is going to be the first pick in the draft. He is. That doesn’t mean it’s not debatable — we’ll be happy to play devil’s advocate to the conventional wisdom. Evan Turner is going to be drafted second overall. But he thinks he should be considered for that top pick, something he said…

  10. NBA Playoffs, Lakers v. Suns Game 2: Ron Artest still fighting the ghost of Trevor Ariza

    May 20, 2010, 1:18 PM EST

    As long as Ron Artest remains a Laker, he will be compared to Trevor Ariza. The circumstances that allowed for the addition of Artest and Ariza’s departure just fit together too conveniently, and considering the similar spaces and roles they’ve occupied within the Laker offense. Artest apparently isn’t too keen on the comparison. From Dave…

  11. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Dwight Howard does too have post moves

    May 20, 2010, 12:38 PM EST

    Dwight Howard is a brute in the low post with no moves, he just gets by on his sheer force and athleticism, right? He can’t adjust because of that, which is why the Celtics can stop him, right? Wrong. Nobody is suggesting Howard has all the post moves of Pau Gasol, but he does have…

  12. Ben Wallace mulling retirement

    May 20, 2010, 11:47 AM EST

    In the middle of a disastrous Pistons season, Ben Wallace had a rebirth, his best season in a long time. Not that anybody noticed because people stopped watching Detroit early on, but he played pretty well. He played more minutes per game, led the Pistons in rebounds per game, shot at one of the highest…

  13. Detroit Pistons are officially for sale, but who wants them?

    May 20, 2010, 11:19 AM EST

    Ever since Bill Davidson passed away, it was assumed that his widow Karen would sell the Detroit Pistons and Palace Sports and Entertainment, the company that runs the team its arena The Palace in Auburn Hills. She said before she was exploring it, but she told the Detroit Free Press that the team is now…

  14. Quote of the day, I love the smell of desperation in the morning

    May 20, 2010, 10:42 AM EST

    “It is truly a hideous experience. It is just awful. You could almost sense the desperation in the room.” –Minnesota Timberwolves president and general manager David Kahn, on attending the NBA Draft Lottery, as told the the Star-Tribune.

  15. Former NBAer Chris Dudley wins Oregon gubernatorial primary

    May 20, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Chris Dudley, NBA center to Chris Dudley, governor of Oregon. It could happen. Tuesday night Dudley won the Oregon Republican primary for governor. Apparently Oregon Republicans like defensive-minded shot blockers — which somehow seems fitting with a conservative worldview. The problem Dudley faces is that the majority of Oregonians do not share his worldview —…

  16. NBA Playoffs Lakers Suns Game 2: pick your poison with the Lakers offense

    May 20, 2010, 9:44 AM EST

    The versatility of the Lakers offense is proving too much for the Suns — it’s not just inside, it’s outside as well. The Lakers know it and know how to exploit it, while the Suns are searching for answers. And sounding dazed .  

  17. NBA Playoffs Lakers Suns Game 2: Kobe Bryant was Steve Nash like

    May 20, 2010, 9:34 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant was the best passer on the floor during Game 2. Yes, Steve Nash was still on the floor. And he is still Steve Nash. But Kobe was taking pages right out of the Nash playbook all night long — including one third-quarter play where he was dribbling near the top of the key,…

  18. Atlanta Hawks begin coaching search with Avery Johnson

    May 20, 2010, 8:58 AM EST

    Mike Woodson made the Atlanta Hawks better but oversaw a slow offense despite having amazing athletes for the fast break, and he could never get them over the hump in the playoffs. So the Hawks let him walk. Their first look at a replacement coach? Avery Johnson, according to NBA.com’s writing on twitter. Johnson is…

  19. NBA Playoffs, Lakers v. Suns Game 2: Showcasing the impressive, empowered, and balanced Laker offense

    May 20, 2010, 3:31 AM EST

    After the Lakers’ dominant performance in Game 1, Alvin Gentry wisely noted that “[the Suns] can survive a Kobe game, but [they] can’t survive a Lamar game, and then Pau playing extremely well, and then Jordan Farmar really coming in and having a solid game and then Artest playing the way he is.” He was…

  20. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 2: Dazed and confused Suns try to figure out what's next

    May 20, 2010, 1:30 AM EST

    The Suns played straight up man-to-man. They mixed in some zone. They tried to front Pau Gasol in the post. They played behind him. They tried to double team Kobe, both aggressively and once he picked up his dribble. They tried every defensive gimmick in the book — and the Lakers scored 124 points on…
