    Kings McLemore McCallum Basketball

    As recently as January, UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad was higher on many mock draft boards than was Ben McLemore of Kansas. Things changed in the months leading up to the draft, and for a variety of reasons, McLemore ended up going seven spots higher when all was said and done.

    Blake Griffin

    First it was Kevin Durant and Spencer Hawes (seriously), and then it was Kyrie Irving, all showing out at Jamal Crawford‘s Pro-Am league in Seattle. On Saturday, it was Blake Griffin‘s turn. In terms of sick highlights and pure entertainment value, this probably doesn’t surpass what we saw Kyrie do a day earlier. But Griffin can…

    Brad Stevens appears to be a solid head coaching hire to lead the rebuilding effort for the Boston Celtics, especially considering they gave him a six-year contract that should provide plenty of time for him, as well as the front office, to put their future plans in place. We know Stevens can coach at the…

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Phil Jackson has gone on the record more than once saying he’s not going to return to coaching since being left at the altar by the Lakers near the beginning of last season. It may or may not have anything to do with the level of desire Jackson still has to compete in that capacity.…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It has to be discouraging to players already in place on a team’s roster to see it essentially gutted and left with mostly rookies and minimum salary players in advance of the upcoming season. That’s what Sixers guard Evan Turner is going through this summer. After starting all 82 games for Philadelphia last year alongside…

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    After two somewhat productive seasons with the Hawks, bruising big man Ivan Johnson is an unrestricted free agent.

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    When Joe Lacob and Peter Gruber paid $450 million for the Golden State Warriors back in 2010, many thought they overpaid substantially for one of the NBA’s more downtrodden franchises. The Warriors, after all, had just two winning seasons in the past 16 years up until that point, and while they’ve managed to retain one…

    Jeremy Lin, James Harden

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey did a Reddit AMA — which stands for “ask me anything.” For those who don’t know what this means, it is essentially a cool kids Q&A. As happens pretty much every time there is public discussion of the Rockets, Jeremy Lin takes some hits. He put up a nice 13.4 points…

    Chris Hansen

    Chris Hansen led the group that tried to purchase the Sacramento Kings with the understanding that once they took ownership, the team would be relocated to Seattle.

    Aug 16, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Chris Hansen

    When the NBA owners voted against relocating the Kings from Sacramento to Seattle back in May, that effectively ended the pursuit to purchase the team by a Seattle-based ownership group led by Chris Hansen. Even after the battle was officially over, however, Hansen chose to keep fighting. From Sam Amick of USA Today: Seattle-based hedge…

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    A rivalry in sports has different meanings depending completely on perspective. A team with a long history of a winning tradition is not likely to view those with lesser credentials as a rival, but teams with a little brother complex that are in close proximity may get up for games against the more historically powerful…
