    There were plenty of stretches where the Grizzlies played just fine, especially defensively, in their Game 1 loss to the Thunder.

There’s a short list of adjustments the Grizzlies need to make in…

    screaming-woman

    You heard her, right? How could you not. One of TNT’s microphones picking up the ambient crowd noise in San Antonio Monday night was near the person who became known on twitter as “screaming lady.” We have no idea who she actually is — and we’re assuming it’s a she and not a guy or…

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    If you only watch the last quarter of NBA playoff games, you have to be asking, “what is not to love about Nate Robinson?” We love the plucky underdog and Robinson is that — a guy listed at 5-foot-9 who has won the dunk contest twice. A guy leading a Bulls team so banged up…

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    When we previewed the series between the Heat and the Bulls, we had the Rest or Rust question as one of our keys to watch. We also were as dismissive of it as possible, considering just how dominant Miami had been over the last three months, winning 41 times in 43 games. Well, after dropping…

    Jason Collins made big news as the first active NBA player to come out of the closet as a gay man. But if you think he’s the first gay NBA player — or the first gay player that most NBA players have had on their team at some level — you are naive. Charles Barkley…

  13. Bernard King said he didn’t tweet things about Knicks that make sense

    May 7, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Bernard King

    No NBA team is as paranoid about its image as the New York Knicks. Which is saying something. That extended to Knicks legend, newly minted Hall of Famer and sometimes MSG Network employee Bernard King. Two tweets appeared on King’s timeline Monday: “If Carmelo’s shoulder is hurting that bad – work the paint- drive and…

    The Spurs pulled off an amazing comeback to win game 1, but with 4 minutes left in the game and trailing by 16 you never would have imagined it would happen. But there’s a reason you never count the Spurs out. They boast an explosive offense and a stingy defense that has the ability to…

    Heat Basketball

    Tom Thibodeau sounded like Tom Thibodeau — that was good but it won’t be good enough next time. Erik Spoelstra sounded like the classic frustrated coach.

    Joakim Noah, Nate Robinson

    Legendary baseball statistician Bill James once said the big problem with the NBA is that the best team usually wins in the playoffs. He’s right, the NBA playoffs tend to follow form.

    What. A. Game. After the contest Manu Ginobili said he had no idea how his Spurs won this game 129 to 126 to take a 1-0 in the Western Conference semi-finals.
