    May 28, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    Spurs center Duncan scores on Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Durant in San Antonio, Texas

    Not that you really had any doubt… Tim Duncan will be a free agent come July 1, and after his rebound performance this season and through the playoffs, a few teams around the league would have interest if they could get him at a fair price. Don’t bother. Here is what Duncan told Johnny Ludden…

  2. Chris Bosh opens up about crying last year, injuries now

    May 28, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh clearly just wants another shot at it. He and the Heat came within two games of winning an NBA championship last season, he helped them get there by being the most consistent Heat player through the playoffs (including outplaying Kevin Garnett in the second round). If there was ever any doubt to Bosh’s…

  3. Ricky Rubio caught Spurs/Thunder from luggage carousel

    May 28, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Rubio at airport

    Timberwolves guard of the future Ricky Rubio didn’t want to miss Russell Westbrook vs. Tony Parker. No matter what. That photo you see to the right was tweeted by Minnesota’s Rubio Sunday night.  I don’t miss the #NBAPlayoffs even if I have to pick up my bro @marcrubiovives and @ainonacohi at the airport. As Kelly Dwyer…

  4. Rockets say they want to keep Lowry and Dragic. Good luck.

    May 28, 2012, 12:12 PM EST

    Kyle Lowry

    We told you this was coming at the same time that Kyle Lowry sounded like a guy who didn’t like his coach and wanted out of Houston — the team would deny this is the case. They have to. You can’t get value trading a guy who everyone knows wants out and you want to…

  5. Report: Brian Shaw to interview with Bobcats this week

    Brian Shaw

    This was expected once the Pacers were eliminated from the playoffs. Pacers lead assistant coach and former Phil Jackson right hand man Brian Shaw is going to interview for the Charlotte Bobcats coaching job this week, reports ESPN.

  6. Chris Bosh works out on court, still not ready for Game 1

    May 28, 2012, 10:40 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Chris Bosh is not walking through that door… yet. The Heat’s big man who is key to their offensive spacing — and in the Eastern Conference finals could help cover Kevin Garnett — is still officially “out indefinitely” with a strained abdomen and will not dress for Game 1 against Boston Monday. However, Bosh was…

  7. Video: Manu Ginobili’s monster fourth quarter for Spurs

    May 28, 2012, 10:25 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    When the game was on the line, Oklahoma City just did not have an answer for the herky-jerky style of Manu Ginobili. He had 11 of the Spurs 39 points in the fourth quarter as the Spurs found a system that worked — going small — and came from behind to win Game 1. Ginobili…

  8. British officials ticked Bulls tried to dissuade Deng from Olympics

    May 28, 2012, 9:58 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    From the start, Luol Deng has been clear about what he wants to do — his wrist may need surgery but he was going to play through it and be part of Great Britain’s Olympic basketball team, the way he played through it for the Bulls at the end of the season. Even if that…

  10. Quote of the Day: “I want some nasty”

    May 28, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    Utah Jazz fans cheer as San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich watches the action during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The best part of this Gregg Popovich in-game pep talk to his team is really the way he snarls that last line. He started the speech (before that video clip above) with the line “Are we having fun yet?” His Spurs were down 9 going into the fourth and he hadn’t seen the fight from them…

  11. Thunder-Spurs: The life and times of Kevin Durant in Game 1

    May 28, 2012, 2:05 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    Momma said there’d be days like this. Kevin Durant had a pretty bizarre Game 1 vs. San Antonio. He couldn’t get it going in the first half, shook loose in the third quarter, and then was bottled up by San Antonio in the fourth. He hit free throws, a result of the Spurs’ defensive approach…

  12. Popovich reaches into toolbox, makes adjustments, Spurs win Game 1

    May 28, 2012, 12:18 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan celebrates in the final seconds of Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder in San Antonio

    There’s a reason the Spurs haven’t lost a game since before you sent your taxes in (19 in a row now) — they can adapt and take what you give them. Gregg Popovich is the master of adjustments and this roster is a huge toolbox of options for him to choose from. He and the…

  13. Rondo is not lacking confidence about beating the Heat

    May 27, 2012, 6:05 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo was asked Saturday night about how the Celtics feel about their chances. From Fox Sports Florida’s Chris Tommasson: Rajon Rondo believes Celtics can beat Heat: “We feel we can beat Miami. Obviously, we got to this point. There’s no doubt in our mind we can. We got to go down there and take…

  14. Josh Childress sets dubious free throw record

    May 27, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns

    Josh Childress, the former Hawk sixth man who bolted for Greece and was coaxed back to the NBA by Phoenix, wasn’t impressive this season and fell out of the rotation with the Suns (at least until Grant Hill got injured). But that didn’t stop him from setting a dubious record this season, something pointed out…

  15. Video: Rajon Rondo has “big game DNA”

    May 27, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers  v Boston Celtics - Game One

    CSN New England’s A. Sherrod Blakely talks about Rajon Rondo‘s “big game DNA” after the Celtics Game 7 win Saturday night. It should be noted that Rondo’s Game 7 career averages entering Saturday were 10 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists, which is obviously good, but not by any means monstrous. Still, Rondo’s ability to…

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The Boston Celtics don’t mind the short two-day turnaround until the start of the Eastern Conference finals. At least that’s what they are saying now. We’ll see what they are saying Monday night after the game. So you can set your DVR and not miss a moment, following is the schedule for the Eastern Conference…

    Dwight Howard

    Now this is more like it. No more Shaq nonsense. No more ridiculousness. The Magic are reportedly in pursuit of interviews for three members from the Spurs-Thunder tree for their open GM position. From Yahoo! Sports: Thunder vice president and assistant general manager Troy Weaver and Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey have been targeted, and…

  18. The Celtics are OK with a quick turnaround vs. Miami

    May 27, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The Celtics wrapped up their series with the Sixers on Saturday night, and now have to fly to Miami Sunday morning for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against a Heat team that has been healing and waiting for five days. Considering the age and injury status of most of the Celtics, this might…

  19. Sixers-Celtics Game 7: Rajon Rondo when you need him

    May 26, 2012, 11:56 PM EST

    Boston Celtics guard Rondo drives to the basket past Philadelphia 76ers guard Turner during the first quarter of Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    There is an argument to be made that Rajon Rondo is the single most compelling player in the NBA, at least the one still playing in these now Conference Finals after the Celtics’ 85-75 win in Game 7 over the Sixers to advance to face Miami. And if anything, Game 7 reinforced that idea as…

  20. Warriors working to leverage future assets to get back future asset they already leveraged

    May 26, 2012, 8:18 PM EST

    Warriors logo

    The Warriors are in a hurry to rebuild, apparently. After trading Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh to get what they considered to be their franchise defensive center, a must for Mark Jackson’s plans since he was hired, the Warriors shut down their entire team and tanked so hard in order to keep their draft pick.…
