  1. Iverson's wife files for divorce

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    Just days after separation with the Philadelphia 76ers and a week after stepping away from the NBA to be with his sick daughter, Allen Iverson is lucky enough to have another personal struggle added to an already trying week. Iverson’s wife, Tawanna, has filed for divorce, citing describing her marriage as “irretrievably broken.” The latest…

  2. Michael Jordan was bargain shopping

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Seven years ago, Robert “I didn’t name them the Bobcats after me” Johnson forked over a cool $300 million so he could start and expansion NBA team in Charlotte. Michael Jordan just bought the team for $175 million, according to the people at Forbes. If Jordan had waited another week he might have been able…

  3. Bosh to return to action tomorrow

    Mar 4, 2010, 12:34 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh has missed the last six games due to injury. All was good and well during the first two games of that stretch, when the Raptors’ opponents were the Nets and the Wizards. But once met with some solid competition, the outmatched Raps crumbled in the subsequent four games. Toronto’s average margin of defeat…

  4. Knicks woes not D'Antoni's fault

    Mar 4, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    It’s not easy to watch the Knicks right now. Almost as hard as sitting through a Dane Cook concert. It’s just not entertaining or interesting, and the losing is wearing on Knicks fans. And they want to blame the coach. Mike D’Antoni. Right or wrong. Knicks President Donnie Walsh tried to change that yesterday by…

  5. Mavs' back-up point guard spot still a mystery

    Mar 4, 2010, 12:06 PM EDT

    Rick Carlisle mentioned last week that the Mavs’ rotation this season would continue to be fluid. That’s a must considering that he’s still working Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood, and DeShawn Stevenson into the mix, and that’s to say nothing of Erick Dampier’s injury that has kept him out of the lineup since February 16th. I’m…

  6. Lakers Buss family as a Shakespearian Drama

    Mar 4, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    Oh what a tangled web we weave… Sometimes the Buss family — owners of the Lakers — come off as crazy as a family in a Shakespearian drama. Well, maybe not Macbeth crazy, but crazy. There is the eccentric patriarch ceding his power and the greedy children trying to push each other out of the…

  7. Avery Johnson is playing footsie with the Hornets

    Mar 4, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Avery Johnson, or, “The Little General” as he’s known in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 circles, has been out of the coaching gig for a bit. A nice comfy studio gig and no reporters questioning his every small-ball lineup. But Sam Amico writing for Pro Basketball News brings word that Johnson’s agent will be…

  8. Bulls are raking in profits if not wins

    Mar 4, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    Location. Location. Location. And a favorable stadium deal. In the world of profit and loss, the Bulls are your NBA champions. Last season, the Bulls made a profit of about $51 million. Over the last three years that sum is $165 million. Over the last decade the Bulls have made owner Jerry Reinsdorf $474 million…

  9. The Bobcats have become Mr. Grumpy Pants

    Mar 4, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    The Bobcats really did look like this was going to be the year. A playoff appearance, some silencing of the incessant critics who said this team was not only horrible, but would be horrible for the next five years, maybe a slight reprieve of all the negativity that’s devoured them pretty much since inception. And…

  10. Nets fans boo LeBron

    Mar 4, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

    At Madison Square Garden, half the fans were there to cheer LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers. The other half had signs begging James to become a Knick next year. Nets fans used to hold out hope James would come to their team this summer. Now, they just boo him like any other team’s superstar.…

  11. Buy Boom Dizzle's beard

    Mar 4, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    If you want to look like Baron Davis, you need to buy his beard. If you want to play like Baron Davis, just jack up pull-up three pointers in transition (don’t worry about making them).

  12. Durant should get a max deal this summer

    Mar 4, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    July 1 is the first day the Oklahoma City Thunder can offer to extend the contract of their rising superstar Kevin Durant. They can offer a contract that kicks in after his rookie deal, potentially locking him up for five years beyond the one he has left (plus a potential qualifying offer). And if they…

  13. Bobcat's Jackson says Celtics talk too much

    Mar 4, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    For one half last night, the current Celtics looked like the old Celtics (of a couple years ago). They flat out dominated Charlotte, holding them to 35 points and pushing them around on defense while Paul Pierce had the hot hand at the other end of the court. And they talked a lot of trash.…

  14. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:24 AM EDT

    What happened Wednesday, while you were celebrating your new Ghostbusters prints… Celtics 104 Bobcats 80: Or, “How The Celtics Got Their Groove Back.” The Bobcats hung for a half, giving the Celtics all they could handle. Then the Celtics broke it open and never looked back. 35 points total for the Cats in the second…

  15. Winderman: Cap holds change free agent equation

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    Hold on. No, seriously, hold on. Because all is not as it appears when it comes to the heavy hitters and free agency this summer. With the passing of the trading deadline and now the passing of this week’s waiver deadline for postseason eligibility, we have a much better read on where teams stand entering…

  16. Magic tell Barnes to chill with his Twitter profanity

    Mar 3, 2010, 10:01 PM EDT

    Some players really like Twitter. It’s a way to communicate with their friends and family, expand their brand, and generally talk about when they’re going to take their pre-game nap. But sometimes, players also tend to go a little too far. It should come as no surprise that Matt Barnes is one of those guys.…

  17. Celtics taking on interesting variations of former selves

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:05 PM EDT

    The Celtics defined their 07-08 championship run with high-character players who understood their role built around the big three. That was what made the 2008 team so dominant, the perfect management of ego and talent. A combination so brilliantly naturally dynamic even Doc Rivers couldn’t screw it up. But since then, they’ve started to take…

  18. Tony Parker may take a summer vacation

    Mar 3, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    Tony Parker has been pretty good this season, he just has not been The Tony Parker. The quick penetrating point guard that struck fear into the hearts of teams across the land and led the Spurs to titles has been replaced by a slower, not quite as good shooting version. Sort of like the second…

  19. The people of Charlotte have spoken

    Mar 3, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    The best thing about the NBA is it is a democracy, where the fans voices are always heard and carefully considered by ownership before any decisions are made… Right. And bacon is good for your arteries. Still, we can dream. The fine folks at the Charlotte Observer have dreamed, and asked the people of Charlotte…

  20. Darko expected to start tonight

    Mar 3, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    Consider it a showcase for the European scouts whose teams will be bidding on his services for next season — Darko Milicic is expected to be in the starting lineup for the Timberwolves tonight against Dallas. The reason for the sudden promotion is Al Jefferson is serving a two-game suspension for a drunk driving arrest.…
