    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    We passed along the story to you Monday about Amare Stoudemire using and expletive and a derogatory word for gay in a direct message response on twitter to a fan who had used some other choice words in telling Stoudemire that he needed to “make up for last season.” The fan them took a screen…

  2. Carmelo Anthony has dropped 12 pounds, it’s not all wax

    Jun 26, 2012, 3:25 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Any NBA player with real championship aspirations has to see the Heat holding up the Larry O’Brien trophy and get motivated. Do you have any doubt that Kobe Bryant watched Game 5 then went to work out for a few hours? Carmelo Anthony is doing the same and trying to get ready for the Olympics…

  3. Video: Anthony Davis shoots random objects with Jimmy Fallon

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    Anthony Davis

    Presumptive No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday night, and on top of pimping a phone app, he got to shoot some random object through a hoop with Fallon — a bowl of Mardi Gras beads, a Chicago-style hot dog, even a fan. You never know how a…

    NBA 2K13 cover

    In the dog days of summer that are coming — after the NBA draft, after free agency winds down, after Summer League, after the Olympics — we will be left without basketball for a couple of months. That’s when we end up thinking and playing a lot more NBA 2K12 and thinking about NBA 2K13.…

  5. Drexler says Dream Team pitied Magic Johnson because “he was going to die”

    1992-dreamteam

    It is really hard to explain to people who are growing up now the spector that HIV/AIDS cast back in the late 1980s and early 1990s — it was a death sentence that you could get through sex. There were drug regimines just coming on the market but nobody knew if they would work, nobody really…

  6. Report: League grants Celtics 2013 second round pick in Jeff Green deal

    Jun 26, 2012, 12:40 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green came to the Celtics from Oklahoma City in 2011 as part of the trade that sent Kendrick Perkins to the Midwest. After his first 26 games in Boston Celtics fans were a little frustrated, but Green was exactly who he has been all along — spotty defender, can’t shoot the three, good in…

  7. A sign the Nets really want Deron Williams. Literally a sign.

    Jun 26, 2012, 12:19 PM EST

    Deron Williams birthday

    It’s down to Brooklyn and Dallas. Deron Williams is the best free agent on the market this summer and reportedly he either stays with the Nets and leads them into Brooklyn, or he heads to his home town of Dallas, teams up with Dirk Nowiztki and hangs with Mark Cuban. The Nets want Williams to…

  8. How much better does Anthony Davis make the Hornets?

    Jun 26, 2012, 11:27 AM EST

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    In our instant world — where we can download almost any song ever written in seconds, where even our oatmeal is instant — we don’t like to wait for things. If it takes more than three clicks I’m frustrated. But building an NBA team to contention is an exercise in patience. Well, except in Miami.…

  9. Bobcats’ coach says trading No. 2 pick “makes a lot of sense”

    Jun 26, 2012, 10:39 AM EST

    Mike Dunlap

    No need to read the tea leaves to see if the Charlotte Bobcats are trying to trade the No. 2 pick. Their new coach Mike Dunlap was pretty direct about it when speaking with the Associated Press — he said it “makes a lot of sense” for a team in Charlotte’s position to move down…

  10. Rockets trade Budinger to Timberwolves for No. 18 pick

    Jun 26, 2012, 10:14 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Houston Rockets have added another pick to their stockpile as they try to parlay those picks into another move up the NBA draft board — and ultimately to make a run at getting Dwight Howard out of Orlando. The Minnesota Timberwolves have added a very athletic forward that can give them some good minutes…

  11. Larry Bird is leaving Indiana Pacers, Walsh to step in

    Jun 26, 2012, 9:44 AM EST

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

    It had long been the thought around the league that this was Larry Bird’s last year as president of the Pacers. Bird denied it. Directly. More than once. But in the end, he was ready to leave the Pacers. Bird is stepping down as team president, reports the Indy Star. Bird is “100 percent sure” he…

  12. Report: Roy’s top suitors are Bulls, Pacers, Mavericks, Timberwolves

    Jun 26, 2012, 8:31 AM EST

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy wants to come back to the NBA next fall, and teams are lined up to give him a shot. The three-time All-Star had serious knee issues the last couple years of his career — we’re talking bone-on-bone issues — which caused the Trail Blazers to use their amnesty provision on him. On the…

  13. Davis heads list of NBA Draft night green room invitees

    Jun 26, 2012, 7:55 AM EST

    Anthony Davis

    It means nothing, really. Being in the green room doesn’t impact your draft status. All it really says is that a very button down league that doesn’t want embarrassment is convinced these guys will go in the lottery. Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress leaked the list of names of guys who got invited to the NBA…

  14. You can go home again: Donnie Walsh hired by Pacers

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh was the long-time CEO of the Indiana Pacers who took a few years off to bail the New York Knicks out of their Isiah Thomas hole. They rewarded him for that by shoving him aside (over differences about the Carmelo Anthony deal), stripping him of his power and making him a consultant. Now,…

  15. Report: Houston can trade for Dwight Howard but he’s not staying

    Jun 26, 2012, 1:46 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    And we’re back to this stupid cycle again… Dwight Howard and his camp are trying to exert control over where he gets traded. It was reported  the Houston Rockets were trying to take some big steps to land Howard — trading their two first round picks (No. 14 and No. 16) and some players to…

  16. UConn teammate Lamb not really selling Drummond

    Jun 25, 2012, 11:24 PM EST

    Uconn's Drummond fights for the ball as Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Fab Melo defend during their game at the 2012 Big East men's NCAA college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Andre Drummond is one of the big questions — or if you prefer, big risks — of this NBA Draft. He could be the second best player in this draft, or he could flame out like a late second rounder. One good measuring stick — what do his college teammates say about him? Here is…

  17. Video: Juwan Howard shows off his dance move. Singular.

    Jun 25, 2012, 9:12 PM EST

    Juwan Howard

    Juwan Howard broke out his dance moves (actually, dance move) during the Miami Heat’s title celebration at AmericanAirlines arena Monday. Apparently the Heat’s old man hasn’t learned a new move since he left college. As part of the Fab Five.

  18. Report: Timberwolves to offer Brandon Roy two-year deal

    Jun 25, 2012, 8:35 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Minnesota Timberwolves are a young team on the rise. They are a couple pieces away, but you can see a path for them the same way you saw a path three years ago for the Thunder. Does Brandon Roy move them down that path? According to ESPN 1150 the Timberwolves brass think so —…

  19. Report: J.R. Smith will opt out, but plans to remain a Knick

    Jun 25, 2012, 7:07 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith attempts to dunk the ball in their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

    This fits in perfectly with the story line — J.R. Smith never wanted to leave the Knicks, but he wanted to get paid as much as he could So it leads to this, as tweeted by Howard Beck of the New York Times: JR Smith will decline Knicks option but intends to re-sign for longer…

  20. Anthony Davis trademarks his unibrow. Smart. But weird.

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:08 PM EST

    Anthony Davis

    Anthony Davis is going to be a star. Well, nothing is ever a sure thing. But as much as you can know a guy is a franchise player, Anthony Davis is going to be one. It’s why he is a lock to be the No. 1 overall pick of the New Orleans Hornets come Thursday…
