  1. Clippers put together list of GM candidates (willing to work cheap)

    Jun 11, 2012, 2:13 PM EST

    Vandeweghe

    The Clippers are on the hunt for a new general manager. One they said they’d reached a deal with in principle when clearly they hadn’t. Now we know why — Neil Olshey made the same decision you, I or any sane person would have. Broderick Turner did some digging for the Los Angeles Times and…

  2. Video: Top 10 game winning/tying shots of NBA season

    Jeremy Lin

    I really despise the NBA clutch/closer debate, because it can be arbitrary and it’s easy to pigeonhole guys into being great or terrible in the clutch when the reality for both is closer to the average. Just remember what Rockets GM Daryl Morey (and many others) said — good teams don’t win more close games,…

  3. Five most dominant NBA playoff teams ever

    Jun 11, 2012, 1:04 PM EST

    Kobe Shaquille O'Neal Lakers

    There was a point a couple weeks ago, when San Antonio had won 10 in a row in the playoffs and looked headed to the NBA finals, it looked like the Spurs could be one of the better NBA playoffs teams ever. Then the Oklahoma City Thunder happened. No team out of this year’s NBA…

    Florida Gators guard Bradley Beal celebrates his team's win over the Marquette Golden Eagles during the NCAA men's West Regional basketball tournament in Phoenix

    Bradley Beal feels pretty confident he is going high in this draft. You can tell because he’s not bothering to work out for the Kings at No. 5 or anyone below that, reports Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. Agent Mark Bartelstein told SI.com that he has no plans for Beal to conduct workouts with teams…

    Kevin McHale at adidas Eurocamp

    Kevin McHale was the guest speaker at adidas Eurocamp on Monday, and spent his 45-minute session with the players giving a teaching clinic on low-post play. The video clip above shows the opening five minutes or so of his lecture, where he talked about the need to fight for position to get the ball down…

  6. David Stern expects your draft conspiracy theories now

    Jun 11, 2012, 10:49 AM EST

    David Stern

    When the New Orleans Hornets — still owned by the league, mind you, and about to be sold to the guy keeping them in New Orleans — won the NBA Draft Lottery and the rights to likely franchise changing first pick Anthony Davis, the conspiracy theorists were coming out of the grassy knolls everywhere. Clearly…

  7. Kevin McHale says Celtics’ Big 3 may not be done just yet

    Jun 11, 2012, 10:21 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    The Celtics have a lot of questions heading into next season. Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen will both enter free agency this summer, and the organization will have to decide if they think the core four of those two, along with Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo, are solid enough to contend for one or two…

  8. Might Boston bring back Garnett, Allen? Ainge is open to it.

    Jun 11, 2012, 9:54 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    At the trading deadline, Boston didn’t look right on the court and while the players in the locker room believed nobody else did. Boston general manager Danny Ainge considered blowing it all up with trades. He didn’t. He and Celtics fans were rewarded with a run all the way to Gam 7 of the Eastern…

  9. Five keys for Oklahoma City to become NBA champions

    Jun 11, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Six

    It’s been building to this for years now — from way back when Kevin Durant was drafted (back in Seattle), followed by Russell Westbrook the next year and James Harden the year after that. Thunder GM Sam Presti was building something. Now the Oklahoma City Thunder are on the doorstep of the teams’ first championship…

  10. Five keys for Miami to become NBA champions

    Jun 11, 2012, 8:05 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    No doubt, Miami can win these NBA finals. They may be mild underdogs, but they are in this. LeBron can get the ring he craves. Yes, I picked Oklahoma city to win (in six). It’s not that the Heat don’t have the talent, I’m just not convinced that for four out of seven games they…

  11. Report: Spurs interested in Kevin Garnett… really?

    Jun 11, 2012, 12:45 AM EST

    tim duncan, Kevin Garnett

    Kevin Garnett next to Tim Duncan on the San Antonio Spurs? Really?!? Who came up with this? This is the Spurs organization loyal to Duncan, and reportedly Duncan hates Garnett. So you’re going to pair them? It sounds both ill advised and strange. That said, it would make the already formidable Spurs potential frontrunners in…

  12. Video: Miami Heat victory locker-room dance party

    Jun 10, 2012, 10:21 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    I’m really not sure about the musical overlay on this one from NBA.com… but the video works. The Miami Heat succeed when they are having fun — their “flip the switch” moments seem to come when they are comfortable, have fun and the game starts to flow for them from there. They did that in…

  13. Spurs want to keep Boris Diaw, but at what price?

    Jun 10, 2012, 8:17 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    What a long, strange trip it’s been. Boris Diaw went from being the guy who won the “Shawn Kemp Award for most weight gained during the lockout” to a guy waived by the woeful Charlotte Bobcats to a guy who put up quality numbers for the San Antonio Spurs in the playoffs. Diaw had a…

  14. Your NBA finals schedule. Set your DVRs now.

    Jun 10, 2012, 5:56 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    It’s the Heat and the Thunder. Kevin Durant vs. LeBron James. Midwest vs. the East Coast. With the Heat taking their time getting past the Celtics they do not have a lot of turnaround time before Game 1. Here is the schedule for the NBA finals. Remember that the finals are played in a 2-3-2…

  15. How Brendan Haywood’s contract structure could help the Mavs reload

    Jun 10, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    The Dallas Morning News shared an interesting note about Brendan Haywood‘s seemingly albatross contract that could be huge this summer. Haywood has what one NBA executive called “the best spread provision in the NBA” in his contract. In layman’s terms, any team that waives Haywood can spread out the payments for the remainder of his…

  16. 2012 adidas Eurocamp: Day 1 recap

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:09 PM EST

    Adidas Eurocamp Day 1

    Day one of adidas Eurocamp is in the books, and while several of the players showed flashes of ability throughout the opening session, the best player on the floor was Tomas Satoransky. The 6’7″ combo guard from the Czech Republic was consistent in his brilliance throughout the day, and showed off his excellent overall court…

  17. NBA Finals Preview: Miami Heat vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jun 10, 2012, 2:02 PM EST

    Russell Westbrook, LeBron James

    SEASON RECORDS Miami 46-20 (2 seed in East) Oklahoma City 47-19 (2 seed in West) SEASON SERIES The teams split their two meetings. Miami won the last meeting on April 4 98-93 because LeBron James had a monster game and Heat players were knocking down their spot up looks. In the meeting just more than…

  18. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Erik Spoelstra’s redemption

    Jun 10, 2012, 12:22 PM EST

    Erik Spoelstra

    I’ll say it, I buried him. I absolutely buried Erik Spoelstra after Game 5. He had failed to make any meaningful adjustments, had allowed the Celtics to dominate the structure of the series, and had squandered opportunities to put this series away. I buried him. And hey, shocker, I was wrong. He’s not buried. He’s…

  19. Report: Larry Bird no longer has a relationship with GM David Morway

    Jun 10, 2012, 11:31 AM EST

    Former NBA player Bird attends premiere of Magic Bird in New York

    When Larry Bird was retained as President of Basketball Operations for the Pacers, there was an interesting wrinkle. Kevin Pritchard, not longer-tenured David Morway, was tapped for the GM position under Bird. It was thought that was because Morway, having interviewed for vacant positions around the league, was simply headed elsewhere. Turns out that’s true,…

    As part of the evaluation process at adidas Eurocamp, players went through BAM (Basic Athletic Measurement) testing: a series of five tests which are used to gauge overall athleticism. This is the first year that Eurocamp has used BAM, and it’s an important step in further legitimizing the camp’s relevance to NBA team executives. The…
