    Adidas Eurocamp - Day 2

    TREVISO, Italy — A rumor surfaced recently that the decision of whether or not Kevin Martin would be back with the Thunder had already been made by either the team or the player, and it originated from something that Serge Ibaka said during an interview with a foreign media outlet. Martin replaced James Harden as…

  2. Joey Crawford is one of your referees for Game 2

    Joey Crawford

    Well, this could get interesting. Joey Crawford, Ed Malloy and Ken Mauer are your referees for Game 2 of the NBA Finals Sunday night. Spurs fans just freaked out a little. They shouldn’t, but they are. I get why they are not happy — Crawford is the referee who threw Tim Duncan out of a…

  3. Lucas Nogueira says he’s flexible on developing his skill set either in Europe or in the NBA

    Adidas Eurocamp - Day 2

    TREVISO, Italy — Lucas Nogueira performed well during the first day of adidas Eurocamp, and perhaps even a bit better than expected. The competition level is always to be taken into account, but he showed a maturity on the floor and a controlled athleticism that made it easy to see why he’s projected as a…

  4. NBA Finals Spurs vs. Heat Game 2 preview: The return of the aggressive Heat

    Jun 9, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    MIAMI — The Spurs know what’s coming. Talking to them Saturday after practice they fully expect the Heat to come out much more aggressive, particularly on defense — Miami will trap, jump passing lanes and try to turn the Spurs over. In Game 1 the Heat respected Tony Parker and didn’t try to trap him…

  5. Kobe Bryant hints he will play beyond next season

    Jun 9, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Lakers guard Bryant jogs onto the floor prior to the start of an NBA basketball game against Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis

    Kobe Bryant certainly hinted more than once he might hang it up after next season. However did you really think a guy that competitive would walk away? Now his Achilles tendon injury oddly makes it more likely he will return. Kobe does not want his final image on the court to be him slowed because…

  6. Report: Sixers interested in Fizdale, Hunt, Joerger as coach

    Bulls Heat Basketball

    Brand new Sixers GM Sam Hinkie knows he has a rebuilding project on his hands, and he apparently wants a young coach to be part of that. It may well be after the draft before a coach is named for the Sixers, but the list that is starting to surface are all assistants looking to…

  7. LeBron to those saying he needs to do more: “I’ve done more and lost”

    Jun 8, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT


    MIAMI — LeBron James learned his lesson in Cleveland — he could not win on his own. Nobody can. You need teammates worth trusting and to give them the rock. Now just because the Heat are down 0-1 to the Spurs and he went scoreless for a six-minute stretch in the fourth quarter, he’s not…

    NBA player Jason Collins marches in the Gay Pride Parade in Boston

    When NBA center Jason Collins came out as gay, he said it was sparked in part because a year ago a friend of his had marched in the Boston Pride Parade and Collins was jealous of his friend. He wanted to be true to himself. Saturday Collins got to fulfill his wish — he marched…

  9. 2013 adidas Eurocamp: Day 1 recap

    Jun 8, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Adidas Eurocamp - Day 1

    TREVISO, Italy — Lucas Nogueira was the player most eyes were focused on during the first day of adidas Eurocamp, not only because of his seven-foot frame, but also because he is the only international prospect in attendance who is projected to be taken late in the first round of this year’s NBA Draft. Nogueira…

  10. Matt Bonner is quietly getting a lot of “Go Gators” around Miami

    Jun 8, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Matt Bonner free throw

    MIAMI — The San Antonio Spurs are the enemy in Miami. This town is Heat crazy, LeBron James crazy, and they loathe anything that stands in their team’s way. But Matt Bonner has a local tie, too — he’s a Florida Gator. That’s a tie that runs deep here, too. And he’s hearing a little…

  11. Dwyane Wade admits it: Game 2 is must win for Miami

    Jun 8, 2013, 2:24 PM EDT


    MIAMI — Everyone else danced around the question. Game 2 is important because all NBA Finals games are important, most Heat players said. Which is true. But some games are more important than others. Just think if if Miami drops its first two games at home… “We’re not a team that really says too much,…

  12. Heat plan to get Chris Bosh some touches on the block

    Jun 8, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT


    MIAMI — It is one of the key images out of Game 1 of the NBA Finals — the Heat are down four late, LeBron James drives into the paint and rather than shoot over the help defender he dishes back to a wide open Chris Bosh at the three point line. The Spurs don’t…

  13. Report: Magic shopping around No. 2 pick

    Jun 8, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    orlando magic logo court

    If it’s a draft without a superstar, and if the Cavaliers are already shopping around the No. 1 pick, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us. The Orlando Magic are shopping around the No. 2 pick, reports Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel. That No. 2 pick is probably going to be Ben McLemore out of…

  14. Give Kawhi Leonard credit for his defense, but expect a more aggressive LeBron

    Jun 8, 2013, 9:59 AM EDT


    MIAMI — LeBron James put up a triple-double in Game 1 of the NBA finals, but it wasn’t as dominant a performance as it appeared in the stat sheet. He was 6-of-8 shooting with five feet of the rim, 1-of-8 outside that range. Then with the game slipping away in the fourth quarter, he was…

    TREVISO, Italy — Sarunas Marciulionis played seven seasons in the NBA, most notably from 1989-1993 as a member of the Golden State Warriors. He finished as a runner-up for the Sixth Man of the Year award in 1992 after his best season in the league, one in which he averaged 18.9 points on just 12.7…

  16. Television ratings dip from last season for Game 1 of NBA Finals

    Jun 8, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT


    Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Spurs and Heat drew 14.2 million viewers, easily winning the television ratings for the night for ABC. But that number is off 12 percent from last season when the Heat were playing the Oklahoma City Thunder (that drew 16.2 million), and it is down slightly from the…

    This is why Jay-Z’s Roc Sports is a potential force in the agent business. For one, he’s an icon of success to a lot of players. Second, it’s not the contracts it’s the branding. That’s why Kevin Durant is jumping ship from Rob Pelinka (Kobe Bryant’s agent, among others) to Roc Sports, something first reported…

  18. Report: Brian Shaw is guy Nuggets want… do we sense a bidding war?

    Jun 7, 2013, 10:08 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    We know that the Los Angeles Clippers have Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw near the top of their list — he may be untested but he brings some Lakers rings cache to the team always in the shadows in that city. Shaw is also reportedly the top target of the Brooklyn Nets, a team with…

    Los Angeles Lakers Victory Parade

    And you wonder why we make fun of Lakers fans sometimes… It’s not all of them, there are some great, smart Lakers fans out there. There is a real and passionate fan base. But man, some of the people on the fringes are… not really fans of the sport, to put it kindly. Or, not…

  20. Tony Parker coaching the Spurs (video)

    Jun 7, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT


    ESPN caught an awesome scene last night of Tony Parker coaching the Spurs during Game 1 of the NBA Finals. After speaking with Gregg Popovich first – surely just double-checking his message, but also implicitly showing he’s not staging a coup to San Antonio’s gameplan – Parker addresses his teammates on the bench. My absolute…
