    Apr 10, 2012, 1:45 PM EDT

    Spurs Jazz Basketball

    Really, I’m just glad I’m not the guy who has to clean off the Jazz mascot’s uniform. In an effort to distact fans from the fact the Jazz are about to miss the playoffs create a world record for the world’s largest silly string fight, the team passed out 300 cans of the stuff right…

    Mikhail Prokhorov

    The Nets did not get Dwight Howard to pair with Deron Williams as the team heads to Brooklyn. (Although, if the Magic knew then what they know now, don’t you think they pull the trigger on that deal?) The Nets are not good. They likely will not be good when they move into the Barclay’s…

    The NBA owners are getting together in a mid-town Manhattan hotel this week, and not just to give us all lockout flashbacks. (Quick, get Larry Coon to order some pizza!). It’s time for the Board of Governor’s meeting (which is a fancy way of saying all the owners get together and vote on stuff). It…

    Apr 10, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Note to Paul Millsap: It was nothing personal. He would do this against anyone.

Popovich didn’t care about the Spurs 11-game winning streak or the paying fans in…

    Apr 10, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Shouldn’t we have known that if you asked Phil Jackson about what is going on with Andrew Bynum his reaction would have been to relax, let things play out, it will all work out like it is supposed to? Jackson took time from playing with his Zen sand garden writing his newest book to speak…

  9. LaMarcus Aldridge good with being at heart of rebuild

    Apr 10, 2012, 9:48 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Marcus  Camby

    A lot of teams don’t like to use the “R” word — rebuild — because they fear it will scare off ticket buyers. Which strikes me as thinking your fans are shallow or stupid — fans of a team want hope, and they will come pay to see and cheer on young players so long…
