    Los Angeles Lakers coach Brown celebrates with Bynum during their NBA game against Boston Celtics in Los Angeles

    Andrew Bynum was ejected early in the fourth quarter of the Lakers loss to the Rockets on Friday, and by all accounts, it was a situation that should have been completely avoided. Bynum already had picked up one technical foul, and after scoring on a strong post move inside, he turned to the Houston bench…

    Apr 7, 2012, 8:12 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Washington Wizards

    There is nobody on the planet that thinks Stan Van Gundy will be back to coach the Orlando Magic next season. Not Jeff Van Gundy. Not Mrs. Van Gundy. Not the president of the Van Gundy Fan Club… actually, there is no Van Gundy fan club. Yet, Stan Van Gundy is going through the motions.…

    Apr 7, 2012, 3:03 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    First there was this: Now from the Lakers loss to the Rockets we have this: Look, I know what to expect from McRoberts — hustle, fundamental solid play, some rebounds and hustle points. But spin move three pointers and steals for the breakaway dunk? Who does he think he is, Von Wafer? If Von Wafer…

    Erik Spoelstra

    Cue up Cage the Elephant… The Miami Heat looked tired Friday night, losing at home to a more physical and physically ready Memphis Heat team.

  7. Andrew Bynum’s “two steps up, one step back” dance with maturity continues

    Apr 7, 2012, 11:59 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    I remember seeing Andrew Bynum as a 17-year-old at Summer League — then held in Long Beach, California — just weeks after being drafted. Two things stuck out to me at those games and interviews: 1) He and his game were so immature. Raw doesn’t even do his game justice. This was raw like sharks…

    Apr 7, 2012, 8:30 AM EST

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    It’s kind of been a foregone conclusion since a month into the season that the Thunder would be the top seed in the West and that all roads to the finals were going through Oklahoma City. But that road may have a detour now through San Antonio. The Spurs have now won 10 in a…

    Apr 7, 2012, 2:13 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    It should never have come to this: The Mavericks had a foul to give at the end of overtime and for reasons nobody understands Jason Terry fouled Raymond Felton with 3.7 seconds left 40 feet from the basket as Felton was losing control of the ball and wasn’t a threat to score. It was a…

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye

    Want to play a fun game: How many of these are offensive fouls? That said, there is no doubt that Blake Griffin is one of the great physical forces in the game today. He attacks like no other. And for those of you saying “yea, but all he can do is dunk” I have two…

    Apr 6, 2012, 6:27 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Favors

    Everyone, including DeMarcus Cousins, should have known this was coming. Cousins criticized the officials, saying they and the league plays favorites with Griffin, and the league doesn’t like it when players suggest the league plays favorites. Of course we all know that doesn’t happen (*cough*). Cousins was fined $25,000 by the league for his comments…

    Apr 6, 2012, 3:58 PM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    Here is what you need to know about Donnie Walsh — he’s not the kind of guy who quietly sit around during retirement and watch Criminal Minds reruns. Even at age 71. Walsh was pushed aside in the Knicks front office but is under a consultant’s contract with them through June 30. Not that they…

  17. Isiah Thomas fired as coach at FIU, Knicks fans feel cold chill

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    Remember back in 2010 Knicks owner James Dolan tried to hire former coach and franchise destroyer Isiah Thomas as a consultant, only to have the plan blow up because you can’t coach a college team and have direct ties to an NBA franchise.

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Anthony Davis is reaping the rewards of being the best player in college basketball and leading his team to a national title.

    It was accepted as conventional wisdom that after his third microfracture surgery earlier this year that Greg Oden was done. In the minds of most fans and team officials around the league he is done. But not in his own mind. That’s what Oden’s agent Chris Haynes told CSNNW.com. “No he’s not retiring. The only…

    Blake Griffin

    Someday James Lipton is going to pull out one of his little blue cards to ask Blake Griffin about this performance, where his motivation really came from. DeMarcus Cousins thinks he knows — he thinks Griffin is an actor and plays a little too much chicken on the court, too. I like that Griffin and…
