  1. Report: Blazers searching for Pritchard replacement, may hire Jerry West

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Seriously, if I’m Kevin Pritchard, I’m going to the beach. After Adrian Wojnarowski (who by the way is collecting breaking story scalps this weekend like Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall while everyone else is focused on some silly game Sunday night) broke the news that the Blazers had hired a head hunter to…

  2. Jeff Van Gundy is not giving up on giving up fouling out

    Jun 6, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    JVG is not kidding around. He really wants the league to do away with fouling out. Speaking to FanHouse’s Brett Pollakoff, Jeff Van Gundy let fly, saying that people deserved to see the best Cetlics players and the best Lakers players without fear of foul truble. He’s advocating at least an increase in the max…

  3. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 2: Can Pau Gasol keep it up

    Jun 6, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    Talking to a Celtics blogger last night, he was pretty candid about how Gasol-Garnett I wound up. “(Gasol) murdered him.” Reds Army was still confident the Celtics would rebound naturally (both literally and figuratively), but the cold hard facts can’t escape even the most stout Boston fans. Pau Gasol railroaded Garnett on his way to…

  4. The Tom Thibodeau-LeBron James via William Wesley corrolary

    Jun 6, 2010, 8:30 AM EST

    The Bulls’ hiring of Tom Thibodeau is in and of itself a great maneuver. Thibodeau, long considered a defensive guru and a major component of the Celtics’ ridiculous defense the last two years. He’s widely respected and was considered an obvious choice (seriously, the Bulls could ink LeBron on the first day of free agency…

  5. Larry Ellison combines bid with existing Warrior minority owners to form super majority

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:14 AM EST

    Larry Ellison — the richest man bidding on the Warriors, the man who would be the richest owner in basketball, the man who could write the biggest check tomorrow — may win the Warriors by bringing in partners. Specifically, existing partners in the team. A group of investors who currently own 20 percent of the…

  6. Ron Artest is excited about the World Cup. Even if he doesn't know who he's cheering for.

    Jun 5, 2010, 5:46 PM EST

    There are a lot of interviews, too many interviews, during the breaks in the NBA Finals. And only so many times you can discuss rebounding or defending Paul Pierce. So the odd questions come, and every once in a while you get a great answer. Like when a reporter asked Ron Artest if he was…

  7. Miami Heat's Spoelstra says he's not worried about Pat Riley the coach

    Jun 5, 2010, 3:41 PM EST

    He’s done it before. Pat Riley may have a front office job but he would rather be sitting on the bench, winning titles. He threw aside a very good coach to do it before, when Dwyane Wade and Shaq looked like they could win a title. If the Heat can land another big star —…

  8. Thibodeau accepts deal to coach Bulls, Hornets have deal with Monty Williams to become coach

    Jun 5, 2010, 1:59 PM EST

    UPDATE 2:40 PM: K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune is reporting that Thibodeau has accepted the Bulls’ offer, but neither team will officially announce his decision until after the NBA finals have concluded. 1:59 pm: The New Orleans Hornets moved on from Tom Thibodeau Friday afternoon and by Saturday morning they got the other guy…

  9. NBA finals Celtics Lakers Game 2: Adjustments are still the key

    Jun 5, 2010, 1:25 PM EST

    It’s just like any playoff series Game 2. Both teams have been in them a hundred times. Except losing this one cripples your chances for winning the series. No pressure. Even with LA completely dominating Game 1, and prompting a ton of media to abandon the good ship Boston and run towards the “S.S. Lakers…

  10. Memories and lessons from the John Wooden Basketball Camp

    Jun 5, 2010, 12:28 PM EST

    Five days doing nothing but playing basketball. To me as a skinny little fourth grader growing up in Los Angeles, it sounded like nirvana. The John Wooden basketball camp. I didn’t expect anything but a week of playing my favorite sport, and it was summer so I certainly didn’t expect to learn anything. That was…

  11. Does Ferry's resignation open the door for a LeBron James-Larry Brown meetup?

    Jun 5, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    Danny Ferry wound up going down with the ship, as it were. But the Navy still needs an admiral, and now the question has to become if this was part of an effort to nab a bigger fish. Assistant GM Chris Grant is taking over for the time being, but with the biggest summer in…

  12. Hornets conducting romantic comedy plot with coaching candidates, move on to Monty Williams

    Jun 5, 2010, 8:41 AM EST

    The New Orleans Hornets looked well on their way to hiring Tom Thibodeau to be their next head coach, but with Thibodeau taking his sweet time (with good reason, in case you haven’t heard, he’s got some stuff going on), the Hornets are not willing to wait. So much like a romantic comedy, after a…

  13. Gasol: Garnett has "lost some explosiveness"

    Jun 4, 2010, 7:49 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett bumps, yells at, curses at, and tries to intimidate every opponent he plays against, no matter how big (or small) that opponent may be. For years, he’s done everything he can to make Pau Gasol’s life miserable whenever the Lakers play the Celtics, and was able to limit Gasol’s production throughout the 2008…

  14. Montiejunas withdraws from NBA draft

    Jun 4, 2010, 7:15 PM EST

    ESPN’s Chad Ford is reporting that international prospect Donatas Motiejunas has decided to withdraw from the 2010 NBA Draft. Montiejunas is a seven-foot forward/center with an amazing package of skills for his size, but there are concerns about whether the 19-year old has developed enough physically to bang with NBA bigs at this point.  Montiejunas…

  15. Celtics GM Ainge thinks Rivers will return

    Jun 4, 2010, 6:59 PM EST

    There hasn’t been nearly as much speculation about where Celtics head coach Doc Rivers will be next season as there has been about where Phil Jackson will end up. However, there is a sentiment among many NBA fans and executives that Doc Rivers will resign as head coach after this season.  There are plenty of…

  16. Celtics/Lakers draws highest game one rating in six years

    Jun 4, 2010, 6:19 PM EST

    According to a press release distributed by the good people at ABC/ESPN today, game 1 of the NBA Finals drew an impressive 10.4 overnight rating on Thursday night. That represents a 17 percent increase from last year, when game 1 of the Magic/Lakers finals drew an 8.9 overnight rating. Thursday night’s game tied the 2008…

  17. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 2: The Lakers know what is coming Sunday

    Jun 4, 2010, 6:11 PM EST

    That was not the Celtics. Or at least the Celtics that will come to play Sunday. They’ll look the same, wear the same uniforms, but they won’t act the same. A more aggressive Lakers team and some aggressive whistles from the referees had Boston taking a step back in Game 1. They spent much of…

  18. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 2: Boston wants its paint back

    Jun 4, 2010, 5:14 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett said he couldn’t repeat what Doc Rivers said to the team during a Friday film session. It’s probably exactly what every Celtics fan was saying last night as they watched the Lakers punch their team in the mouth, what they said when Pau Gasol grabbed another offensive rebound, what they said as the…

  19. Oakley being Oakley: LeBron should not go to New York

    Jun 4, 2010, 4:45 PM EST

    If you’re looking for some crazy, look no farther than Charles Oakley. The 15-year NBA veteran has been out of the league for six seasons, but he still has plenty of opinions about it. The kind of opinions usually heard from overnight sports talk radio callers. Oakley was on recently with Sid Rosenberg of WQAM…

  20. Off-season knee surgery may be in Kobe Bryant's future

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:31 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant isn’t going to talk about it. He gets a bit surly during the playoffs, the media questions are just another distraction in his way. And he doesn’t talk about chinks in the armor on the best of days. But USA Basketball’s Jerry Colangelo told the New York Post that he doesn’t expect Kobe…
