  1. Karl likely out until the playoffs

    Mar 23, 2010, 9:08 PM EDT

    George Karl is tough. Cancer treatments can be brutal. Nuggets coach Karl tried to tough it out and be there for his team as much as he could. But now it appears Karl is going to take a break until about the start of the playoffs, according to Yahoo’s Mark Spears. Karl recently needed treatment…

  2. The NBA's forgotten demographic

    Mar 23, 2010, 7:05 PM EDT

    The NBA makes all kinds of concerted efforts to account for and appeal to their target demographics. There are ticket packages designed for families with young children, dance teams that draw in the ogling masses, and sponsorships that often speak to very particular audiences. The league is even willing to fiddle with its uniforms for…

  3. Rose starting to expand his shooting range

    Mar 23, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    On Both Teams Played Hard, Noam Schiller has written an absolutely massive deconstruction of Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose’s game. There’s a lot of good stuff in there about Rose’s floor game, passing, and defense, but one of the main points the article makes is that Rose takes way too many long two-point jumpers, which…

  4. The value of James Harden

    Mar 23, 2010, 6:04 PM EDT

    As Bill Simmons mentioned in his column today, fans will likely wonder for a long time if Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti made the right call by drafting low-risk shooting guard James Harden with the third overall pick over Ricky Rubio, Stephen Curry, and Tyreke Evans. Curry and Evans have put up far better…

  5. Cleaves arrested on DUI suspicion

    Mar 23, 2010, 5:34 PM EDT

    Former NBA player and Michigan State star Mateen Cleaves was in the news recently for returning to the NBA as a broadcaster for the Detroit Pistons. Now he finds himself in the news for a different reason. According to the Associated Press, Cleaves was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving on Saturday. From the article:…

  6. Jerry Stackhouse becomes P-90X pitchman

    Mar 23, 2010, 5:22 PM EDT

    Jerry Stackhouse was hanging out at home, working out a couple days a week with a high school team, and hoping that somebody making a playoff push would pick up a 35-year-old swingman for some depth. (The surging Milwaukee Bucks did — and they are getting plenty of bang for their bucks: 20 minutes a…

  7. Gilbert Arenas may have pressured Javaris Crittenton into cover-up

    Mar 23, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    In the sentencing memo by U.S. prosecutors for Gilbert Arenas’ case, a wrinkle has been revealed. Prosecutors outlined a text sent to Crittenton which they say was forwarded on behalf of Arenas, telling Javaris Crittenton not to mention their dispute over a card game which sparked the debacle. That Arenas isn’t facing further charges for…

  8. Orlando to consider using giant frontcourt of doom

    Mar 23, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    In recent years, what it means to be an NBA power forward has changed somewhat. You almost never see two true 7-footers in the same lineup, and it’s also rare to see a frontcourt pairing that doesn’t feature at least one player with some shooting range. No team is a better example of this than…

  9. Big Z, Cavs make it official

    Mar 23, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3:18 pm: And it’s official, Ilgauskas is back in Cleveland as a Cavalier. “If I would’ve left and the team won a championship without me,” he said, “I don’t think I could’ve ever forgave myself.” He’s right. After all he’s meant to that franchise, he needs to be around for a title. Now comes…

  10. Cavaliers waive Darnell Jackson to make room for Ilgauskas

    Mar 23, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Amidst all the smiles and hugs that will accompany veteran center Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ return to the team that drafted him, somebody was going to have to get cut to make room. Unfortunately for power forward Darnell Jackson, that somebody was him. According to the twitter account of the Akron Beacon-Journal’s George Thomas, Darnell Jackson was…

  11. Who will be the next head coach of the Clippers?

    Mar 23, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    The long-suffering Los Angeles Clippers are playing out the string on yet another ugly campaign. As bad as the Clippers were doing under former coach (and general manager) Mike Dunleavy, replacing him with Kim Hughes mid-season seems to have been an example of putting out a fire with gasoline. The Clippers are 5-16 under Hughes,…

  12. Wolves make roster moves for playoff push

    Mar 23, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    After dropping 13 of their last 13 games, the Minnesota Timberwolves knew it was time to make a change. So they’re bringing in the big guns, and likely re-signing two-time MVP Brian Cardinal for the home stretch. The Wolves are just 28 games out of the final playoff spot in the West, meaning that Cardinal’s…

  13. Prosecutors want three month sentence for Arenas

    Mar 23, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Prosecutors have made their recommendation — they want Gilbert Arenas to spend three months in prison, plus have three years of probation and do 300 hours of community service. The formal sentencing is Friday. All this stems from the charges that Arenas brought guns into the Wizards locker room at the Verizon Center to confront…

  14. Anthony only the latest to be featured in Knick rumors

    Mar 23, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    Pick an All-Star. Any All-Star. Okay, are you ready? The Knicks want him. Badly. And they are going to wait as long as it takes for him to become a free agent, and then sign him. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to the specifics. Specific as in an actual…

  15. What does the future hold for Manu Ginobili?

    Mar 23, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    Of all the relevant names involved in FREE AGENT FRENZY 2010, Manu Ginobili’s hardly gets the play it deserves. He’s a former All-Star, a two-time champion, and has posted six straight seasons with a PER of 22 or better (including this one, which is supposedly a down year). He’s 32 years old, and that can’t…

  16. Shaq goes cosmic, man

    Mar 23, 2010, 12:48 PM EDT

    Peter Max was one of the world’s most famous artists in the late 1960s. His love poster hung on the wall of every college dorm room for kids to stare at while they got stoned and talked about how bad the war was and how they should just drop out and join the hippies. Shaquille…

  17. Iguodala is hurting, playing through pain

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    It’s not easy being a Sixers fan. Philadelphia’s record makes most of their games at this point in the year pretty irrelevant, as they’re safely out of the playoff hunt but not bad enough to secure a high lottery pick. At 24-47, the Sixers are 12th in the East and lead only the Nets in…

  18. Stoudemire brings the right hand of Thor

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    Anthony Tolliver, welcome to the NBA. This dunk by Amare Stoudemore may be the best of the season. The announcing crew described him as bringing the right hand of Thor, the Viking god of thunder who carried a large hammer. Sounds about right.

  19. It's now or never for Don Nelson's record

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:25 AM EDT

    In just five more wins, Don Nelson would become the NBA’s all-time winningest coach. An amazing accomplishment. In just 12 more games, Don Nelson is sure to be fired. Welcome to the Golden State version of Beat The Clock. With the announcement that the Warriors are up for sale, it became almost inevitable that a…

  20. Moore in the process of hypnotizing and duping another team

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Mikki Moore has magical powers. I’m convinced. How else would you explain the fact that he has actually persuaded NBA teams to pay him money to play basketball? There was a point where Moore was decent. He was hard-working, and somehow developed a reputation for being ‘rugged’ despite being a pretty poor finisher inside and…
