  1. Mike James not at Flip Saunders fan

    Mar 5, 2010, 8:35 AM EDT

    Why didn’t it work out for Mike James in Washington this year? Why did the quintessential journeyman — nine teams in eight NBA seasons — only get on the court for four games with the lowly Wizards? Maybe it was the fact he shot just 30 percent from the field this season. No, that’s not…

  2. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 5, 2010, 2:44 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Thursday, or what you missed while getting geeked about the return of Tecmo Bowl… Heat 114, Lakers 111 (OT): Just was just a fun one to watch –there was a duel between Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, there was spots of good defense but better offense, there was a playoff feel.…

  3. Finley will be a Celtic

    Mar 4, 2010, 6:43 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:45 pm: It’s about as official as it gets when it is on, reported by David Aldridge — Finley and the Celtics have reached terms on an agreement, according to Finley’s agent Henry Thomas. Finley will join the Celtics this weekend. “There were others, but they [the Celtics] were the most aggressive and…

  4. Big Z's agent says he wants to be a Cavalier

    Mar 4, 2010, 6:38 PM EDT

    In news about as shocking as Guinness sales will be up on St. Patrick’s Day, the agent for Zydrunas Ilgauskas says he wants to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. There are a couple reports on twitter from Cavaliers insiders reporting that Big Z’s agent, Herb Rudoy, is saying the center wants to return to the…

  5. Darko says he still plans on returning to Europe

    Mar 4, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Former #2 overall pick Darko Milicic still plans on returning to Europe, according to an Associated Press report. Milicic has been in the rotation for the Minnesota Timberwolves since getting traded by the Knicks, but that has not been “enough to change Milicic’s mind,” according to the AP report. Milicic was once thought to have…

  6. Jennings, this isn't a "slump"

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:37 PM EDT

    Remember THAT Brandon Jennings. The one that seemed an unstoppable force at the beginning of the season. The one with a legendary 55 point game that turned heads. We all miss that Brandon Jennings. Of late he has been stoppable. Very stoppable. And he knows it, just not why it is happening. “I actually don’t…

  7. LeBron moonlights at point guard

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    Delonte West and Daniel Gibson were both inactive for the Cleveland Cavaliers last night. Mo Williams went to the bench early in the first quarter with two quick fouls. That meant LeBron James was left to play point guard against the league’s worst team. The results were impressive. In the 13 minutes James was on…

  8. The Suns' streaks, by the numbers

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:09 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns have had a bit of an odd season. First they were unstoppable, going 14-3 to start the season. Then they weren’t very good at all, going 12-18 over the course of two months. Since January 28th, the Suns are 13-3.  Bright Side of the Sun’s Seth Pollack has a post up today…

  9. Rasheed Wallace and three-point futility

    Mar 4, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace likes shooting threes. He likes shooting threes more than a lot of people like just about anything. This much we know. We also know that Rasheed Wallace’s accuracy from beyond the arc is not commensurate with his love of shooting threes. Rasheed currently shoots 4.4 threes per game, which is about one three…

  10. Garnett inching closer to 100 percent

    Mar 4, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    It’s no secret that Kevin Garnett hasn’t looked like his old self this year. The veteran forward has played well over 1,000 NBA games in his career, and it looks like it may be catching up with him. Garnett, who once missed three games over the course of a six-year span when he was in…

  11. Ilgauskas' feelings are hurt. Cue violin music.

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Poor Zydrunas Ilgauskas. After a dozen years in the NBA, he was traded by a team that desperately wants — needs — him back, but the sting of that brief separation may be too much. That’s what his agent is selling, anyway. Ilgauskas has drawn interest from several other teams, including the Atlanta Hawks. (Big…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
