  1. Video: World Peace jokes about Lakers “pass it to Kobe” offense

    Apr 30, 2012, 9:16 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace, Ron Artest

    Metta World Peace has a lot of time on his hands right now, what with the seven game suspension for elbowing James Harden‘s head and all. So, he’s been putting up videos on the Web. Like this one, joking about the Lakers offense. I’m willing to bet Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol found this a…

  2. USA Basketball may look at new players after Rose injury

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    Rose injury

    Back in January USA Basketball released a list of 20 players, a pool from which the United States basketball team for the London Olympics would be chosen. But due to injuries, that list is down to 15. Derrick Rose’s ACL injury puts him on the shelf, along with Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chauncey Billups.…

  3. Bad news for Clippers: Caron Butler breaks hand, out for playoffs

    Apr 30, 2012, 4:36 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, Caron Butler

    When things went wrong for the Clippers for the first 39 minutes of Game 1 against Memphis, they went terribly wrong. They were able to come back from most of that and get the win. But one thing will linger — Caron Butler has a broken left hand and will be out at least a…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Clippers end game on 28-3 run, win 99-98

    Apr 30, 2012, 12:37 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Zach Randolph

    With 9 minutes and 12 seconds remaining in Game 1 of the Grizzlies-Clippers series, O.J. Mayo hit a 3 to put the Grizzlies up by 24 points in front of their hometown crowd. The Grizzlies were doing everything perfectly: Mayo and Mike Conley were on fire from beyond the arc, the Clippers had no answers…

  5. Video: Rajon Rondo bumps official, gets ejected (and likely suspended)

    Apr 29, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game One

    Rajon Rondo has the right to be frustrated with this call by referee Marc Davis, it was a bad call. All the Celtics should be frustrated with their team’s play Sunday in a loss in Game 1. But you cannot bump an official. Ever. Under any circumstances. Rondo said after the game that he didn’t…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Hawks take Game 1, scoff at the notion of unsustainable offense

    Apr 29, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    After years of watching the Atlanta Hawks operate within a zone of improbability, you’d think we might be better prepared to see them again best a sure favorite. Yet here we are, as dumbstruck as the now 0-1 Boston Celtics. Atlanta didn’t stumble into a revelation of efficiency or make a crucial late-season addition. They…

  7. Bynum’s triple-double, NBA playoff record 10 blocked shots lead Lakers to Game 1 rout of Nuggets

    Apr 29, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before the Lakers opened the playoffs at home against the Nuggets on Sunday, George Karl was asked at the beginning of his press conference if he thought his team had a chance. He responded by saying, “The first question and the arrogance of L.A. comes forth,” which was followed by laughs all around. It turned…

    Apr 29, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The San Antonio Spurs beat the Utah Jazz 106-91 Sunday in Game 1 of their first round series, behind 28 points and 8 assists from Tony Parker. The Spurs have taken a 1-0 lead in their best-of-seven series. For San Antonio, it was a way to wipe clean the memories of last year’s embarrassing first-round…

  9. Jerry Colangelo is rethinking adding players to USA roster after Rose injury

    Apr 29, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    US Kevin Durant (C) celebrates with his

    Jerry Colangelo had said last week that despite the injury to Dwight Howard, Team USA would not be changing its list of invitees for camp. They were going to stick with their guys. That plan lasted right up until the 1:20 mark of the fourth quarter of Saturday’s Game 1 between Chicago and Philadelphia. After…

  10. Mike Brown says injuries to Rose, Shumpert a product of the shortened season

    Apr 29, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Derrick Rose of the Bulls and Iman Shumpert of the Knicks both suffered season-ending knee injuries on the opening day of the playoffs Saturday, and Lakers head coach Mike Brown believes the compressed schedule that players faced in this lockout-shortened season may have had something to do with it. Speaking before his team was set…

  11. Nike designer mocks Derrick Rose’s injury, connects it to signing with Adidas, because people are terrible

    Derrick Rose

    Update: The designer, who built LeBron’s shoes, I might add, has apologized on Twitter.   Wow!Twitterverse I do apologize.It was really just tongue n cheek! Never meant any harm or disrespect! — Jason Petrie (@sevenzro1) April 29, 2012 Saturday night after Derrick Rose tore his ACL and was rendered out for the season, a Nike designer…

  12. Video: LeBron helps sell flagrant foul on Tyson Chandler

    Apr 29, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    That is a foul. A hard playoff foul. Tyson Chandler leans in and sets a moving screen into LeBron James‘ back. But apparently LeBron has been spending more time with the players in Liverpool than we thought, because he sells that like a soccer flop. It was initially called a Flagrant 2 (with automatic ejection),…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Thunder hold onto home-court advantage thanks to Durant’s last-second jumper

    Apr 29, 2012, 12:37 AM EDT

    Durant Marion

    It certainly wasn’t easy, but the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to eke out a 1-0 series lead over the Dallas Mavericks after a back-and-forth final period that ended with Kevin Durant nailing a game-winner with 1.5 seconds left to play. The Mavericks had plenty of chances to win — Shawn Marion did a great job…

  14. It is no longer ‘inconceivable’ that Jeremy Lin could play in the first round

    Apr 29, 2012, 12:04 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    The New York Times reports Saturday that Knicks guard Jeremy Lin began one-on-one drills before the Knicks’ demolition loss to the Heat in Game 1. Mike Woodson has repeatedly said that Lin is out for the entire first-round with swelling in his sore knee. From the New York Times: The Knicks have not officially changed…

  15. Maybe it won’t be so easy, Magic beat Pacers 81-77 in Game 1

    Apr 28, 2012, 11:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    This was the dull series. This was going to be a sweep (as I predicted). The Orlando Magic without Dwight Howard were not going to be able to hang with an up-and-coming Indiana Pacers team. Well, unless Indiana helps them out with a terrible offensive performance. One where they looked young and in awe of…

  16. Heat 100 Knicks 67: Heat drown Knicks in their own tears

    Apr 28, 2012, 9:22 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    That got ugly fast, and then Iman Shumpert went down. So it was essentially the worst day for the Knicks. It could have been worse, but it would have taken some dark magic. The Heat destroyed the Knicks 100-67, outscoring them 57-29 in the second and third quarters. It was total annihilation. After Tyson Chandler…

  17. Iman Shumpert has torn ACL, done for playoffs

    Apr 28, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    Iman Shumpert, the Knicks starting two guard and one of their key perimieter defenders, is done for the playoffs. He has a torn ACL in his left knee and his lateral meniscus, the team announced, and he will be out 6-8 months. Which sounds about right after you watch the video above — it actually…

  18. Derrick Rose’s injury punch to gut of Chicago, opens doors elsewhere

    Apr 28, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Bulls Rose is helped off the court after getting hurt during their NBA quarter-final playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Chicago

    Derrick Rose’s injury sucks. He is out for the playoffs with a torn ACL and there is no other word but sucks to do it justice. (Well, other words I can run here, anyway.) It also changes the playoff picture in the East completely. First and foremost, this just sucks for fans of basketball who…

  19. Video: Knicks’ Iman Shumpert suffers knee injury in Game 1 vs. Heat

    Apr 28, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    The injury news for the league keeps getting worse. After Derrick Rose‘s injury against the Sixers, Knicks guard Iman Shumpert went down with a nasty looking injury in the third quarter of Game 1 vs. the Heat. Shumpert’s knee appeared to buckle off of no contact on a routine jump landing, and he immediately crumpled…

  20. Video: Derrick Rose suffers torn ACL, out for the season

    Apr 28, 2012, 4:04 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Update: Via Bulls PR: “Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and he is out for the remainder of the season.” If you want more details, Aggrey Sam has them at CSNChicago.com. This is terrible for everyone who loves basketball. The Bulls still  might win this season but it changes the entire…
