    Jun 22, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard goes up to shoot under pressure from Houston Rockets Chandler Parsons during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets are trying to clear cap space in order to pursue Dwight Howard, and he reportedly views that favorably. It’s one of the subtle ways teams are allowed to communicate, indirectly obviously, with free agents before July 1. Of course, teams can use impermissible methods, too. But there’s also another way Houston is getting…

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    The Mavericks have been shopping the No. 13 pick to clear cap space, and maybe they’ve found a taker who will also accept the final year of Shawn Marion’s contract, which owes him $9,316,796. Fletcher Mackel of WDSU TV: REPORT don't be surprised if Pelicans acquire 13th pk from Mavs, select Giannis Adetokunbo. NOLA also…

  5. Spurs’ run finally over? An annual question

    Jun 22, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-PRACTICE

    Tim Duncan is 37. Manu Ginobili is 35. Tony Parker, the youngest of the Spurs’ famed trio, is 31. All three have significant mileage from NBA regular seasons, long playoff runs and international play. Are they over the hill to the point San Antonio’s run finally ended? It sure seems so, but I also realize…

    Heat's Wade sits with the Larry O'Brien Trophy after his team defeated the Spurs in Game 7 to win their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Dwyane Wade looked like he hopped in the Hot Tub Time Machine before Game 7 and went back a few years. He was the second best player on the court in the game — 23 points and 10 rebounds. He had more bounce in his step, hit 6-of-13 from the midrange and got into the…

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    Just three teams don’t have picks in the upcoming NBA Draft: the Heat, Raptors and Warriors. The Heat, though every team could use draft picks, are doing just fine. The Raptors, according at least one prominent report, sent out cash in the Rudy Gay trade and the Collective Bargaining Agreement limits how much money a…

  8. Ben McLemore the next Ray Allen? Victor Oladipo the next Dwyane Wade? How they answer could be telling

    Jun 22, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Ben McLemore

    Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo are the consensus top two shooting guards in the 2013 NBA Draft, but for very different reasons. McLemore is seen as a potential superstar who needs more on-court aggressiveness to really shine. Oladipo is seen as a great role player who maximizes his talent. Even a couple seemingly benign quotes…

    Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo

    Most reports have said Doc Rivers might not want to return to the Celtics because he’s wary of rebuilding, but is there another factor?

  11. Report: Chris Paul unhappy after Doc Rivers-to-Clippers fails to materialize

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul didn’t like Clippers owner Donald Sterling insinuating Paul had Vinny Del Negro had fired. Then Paul asked the Clippers to acquire Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett, which probably isn’t happening (though I won’t rule it out until the Clippers hire a coach or Rivers directly announces his intentions to coach Boston next season). How…

  12. Report: Mutual interest between Heat, Greg Oden

    Jun 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    This summer, the Miami Heat need to get bigger. The Indiana Pacers are not going to shrink in the offseason and the Bulls’ size is one of the issues Miami has trouble with (and they get Derrick Rose back). The Heat would like to bring back Chris Anderson, plus they might go after free agent…

    LeBron James

    Warren Buffett often calls me after I really nail a blog post…. Nike had a LeBron James ad ready to go if he won a title (and another Finals MVP), as if you expected anything less.  While he’s a long way behind MJ LeBron sells more shoes for Nike than any other active player (yes,…

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    The Nuggets have interviewed Brian Shaw and Lionel Hollins and were considered the landing spot for the guy who didn’t land the Clippers job (Doc Rivers threw a wrench in that plan for a while, but no longer). However, the Nuggets are not going to sit around and just wait for everyone else to make…

    Jun 21, 2013, 9:13 PM EDT

    From @ShaneBattier on twitter

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Gabriel Union, pretty much every Miami celebrity you can name was celebrating the Heat’s second championship at Story Nightclub after the game Thursday. They even let Drake in. (I don’t know why either, but they did.) But not Shane Battier, he and some friends went to… Denny’s? Yes. Denny’s. Denny's.…

    Pat Riley

    This was as fun an NBA Finals as we have had in a long time. Both the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs played at a high level, both sides showed heart, and all of that came through in Game 7. I am going to have withdrawals now that this series is over. So let’s…

    Jun 21, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    It worked out. You don’t have to like LeBron James — and we know from the comment section here plenty of you don’t. You may be the minority, but you’re vocal. There is still something that rubs a lot of people the wrong way about LeBron. People continue to eagerly root against him. You don’t…
