  1. Mikhail Prokhorov, New Nets owner, is smart, lucky, not so scary

    Mar 29, 2010, 11:36 AM EDT

    The “Mikhail Prokhorov — Get To Know Me” campaign is in full swing. Last night he was on 60 Minutes towering over Steve Kroft. Next week he will featured in Bloomberg Markets Magazine, May 2010 edition (which we were given an advanced copy to review). Because he’s rich and Russian and we here on this…

  2. Wizards just don't get it, let Alonzo Gee sign with Spurs

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    Alonzo Gee has been one of the few bright spots for the Washington Wizards over the past 20 days. I’m sure plenty of Wiz fans (y’know, the ones who haven’t been completely disenfranchised by the ongoing circus that is their team) didn’t quite know what to expect with Gee, but he’s shown himself to be…

  3. Yao Ming may enter 2010 free agent circus

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:13 AM EDT

    LeBron James. Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh. Yao Ming? Maybe. Just our luck, we could have one major free agent to follow this summer. Yao can opt out of his $17.7 million deal after the season, even though he has not set foot on a court this year due to foot problems. He told the Houston…

  4. Don Nelson: Lenny Wilkens is my idol

    Mar 29, 2010, 9:40 AM EDT

    Ask Don Nelson a question about breaking Lenny Wilkens’ record for all time victories by an NBA coach, and he will shoot you a disgusted look. The man does not want to talk about it. But Sunday night he did talk — a little — about his admiration for the man he is chasing in…

  5. Vince Carter injures toe, but nothing is broken

    Mar 29, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    It’s hard to play basketball with a sprained big toe. Well, maybe not if you’re Ben Wallace, but if your game is based on running and jumping like Vince Carter’s is, then a sprained toe will have you sitting. And Vince Carter sprained his right big toe early in Sunday’s win against Denver. The good…

  6. Hedo Turkoglu benched after he and his virus go clubbing

    Mar 29, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu has been too sick to play, or even practice this past last week. Stomach virus. We’ve all had those, a nasty bug that just knocks you off your feet and doesn’t let you exercise, work, do anything really… But you still can go hit clubs up at night. Well, my stomach viruses were…

  7. Gregg Popovich has a problem with your "world" champions

    Mar 29, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    We forget that Gregg Popovich came out of the college ranks — and not some big basketball factory, but one of those well respected small colleges where smart people go. And you have to be smart to coach those players. And Pops is smart. And he speaks proper English — not the annoying mother tongue…

  8. NBA Playoffs: If the Lakers are inevitable, do you want them early or late?

    Mar 29, 2010, 1:58 AM EDT

    Take a look at our NBA’s Race to the Playoffs. Go on. Acquaint yourself. It’s a mess. Particularly the Western Conference. There are seven teams that could end up in the 8th spot, staring down the Lakers (we’re tossing out the Grizzlies, love them as I do. No way anyone’s going in the tank like…

  9. Baseline to Baseline: 'Manu Ginobili wins at life' edition

    Mar 29, 2010, 12:47 AM EDT

    What happened while you were putting a snake in your mouth… Spurs 94 Celtics 73: Such a good game at the half. Such a demolish in the second half. Yikesabees. You may remember these Celtics from such hits as “Christmas Through Two Weeks Ago” and “That Time The Nets Beat Them.” The Celtics had 30…

  10. NBA Draft: Say hello (and goodbye) to Ekpe Udoh

    Mar 28, 2010, 7:58 PM EDT

    The Baylor Bears were downed by the Duke Blue Devils behind the same thing that helped the Mountaineers sink the Kentucky Wildcats. Killer three-point shooting. But in the midst of that, the Bears showed that most likely they, not the Coach K’s crew, had the most NBA ready talent in star guard LaceDarius Dunn and…

  11. Carlos Boozer thinks homecourt will make this year different for Jazz

    Mar 28, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    Utah made the 2007 Western Conference Finals, which seemed to validate the foundation of this Jazz team as a championship contender. Lost in that picture was that they faced the Tracy McGrady led (and therefore doomed) Rockets in the first round, then caught the biggest break ever when they got to face the Golden State…

  12. Joe Dumars will try to work some magic with the MLE

    Mar 28, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    Joe Dumars busted the bank open last summer, hoping to land significant improvements on the top free agents while everyone else was waiting on 2010. The results have been an absolute disaster. Ben Gordon, even when he’s healthy, is not the dynamic instant-offense he was in Chicago. Charlie Villanueva has not flourished with a different…

  13. Eddie Jordan not helping his own cause

    Mar 28, 2010, 1:22 PM EDT

    If you’re trying to keep your job, especially if your a coach whose team has not performed well on the floor, you need to show your passion, your knowledge and how you’ve connected with those players and can turn things around. Meet Sixers coach Eddie Jordan. His team beat the Hawks Friday night, in part…

  14. Cavs going all out to welcome Z back

    Mar 28, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The Cavs host the Kings at 3PM EST, in a routine regular season game devoid of much drama. Tyreke Evans will miss the game with lingering concussion problems. The Cavs have locked up their division and are within reach of locking up the division, so they have little to play for. The Kings are playing…

  15. Hornets officially eliminated from playoffs contention

    Mar 28, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Two years ago, the New Orleans Hornets were entering the playoffs as a young, up and coming team. Led by Chris Paul, the Hornets featured a young, dynamic lineup, and surprised everyone by not only advancing to the second round, but pushing the Spurs to the brink of elimination in a seven game series, losing…

  16. NBA Draft: What did we learn about the Wildcats' draft stock?

    Mar 28, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Another day, another upset. This time, the Kentucky Wildcats fell, losing to a West Virginia team that shot the lights out. As NBA fans, we have to look at this ridiculously loaded Wildcats team and ask if we saw anything on their way out that changes our consideration of their draft stock. Here’s what we…

  17. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 27, 2010, 9:14 PM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were setting fire to the urn containing the ashes of your bracket you already burned… Jazz 103 Wizards 87: The Jazz were everywhere defensively in the second and third quarters. Stretch and swarm, repeat. Against a pretty bad offensive squad. The Wizards did make a nice run in the late…

  18. What does Gasol's return mean for Thabeet?

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:14 PM EDT

    Our Race to the Playoffs tell you that the Grizzlies still have an outside shot at the playoffs. If they’re going to keep that hope alive, they’ll need Marc Gasol who has missed five games with a partially torn neck muscle. Luckily, the normally iron-clad Gasol is making a fast comeback. Even with the torn…

  19. Wizards intend to bring Arenas back

    Mar 27, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said Saturday that the team will not attempt to void Gilbert Arenas’ contract next year, saying “people forget that he’s still one of the best players in this league.” The Washington Post Arenas was sentenced Friday to probation, but no jail time for charges stemming from his infamous altercation involving guns…

  20. No seriously, the Wolves think Darko is part of the answer

    Mar 27, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    After our little talk this morning about whether the Wolves are worse than the Nets this season, we have an interesting look at what they’re thinking long-term. Sure, their draft was a complete bust, Al Jefferson has been clashing with management, Kevin Love is the best player in the doghouse at this moment, and Corey…
