  1. Jordan denies report he’ll sell Bobcats if they continue to suck

    Apr 2, 2012, 8:13 AM EST

    Michael Jordan

    When NBA owners put their teams on the market, there are billionaires waiting in the wings who would love to snatch up one of these toys. Often guys who also want to move the teams. We’re looking at you, Larry Ellison. So whenever Michael Jordan does sell the Bobcats there will be a market —…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Rockets playoff hopes take punch to gut

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:39 AM EST

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    What you missed while reading the book “Cooking with Poo”…. Thunder 92, Bulls 78: The Oklahoma City Thunder have rolled over everybody lately (that’s going to be good for them in the power rankings Monday) and their athleticism overwhelmed the Chicago in our game of the day. Celtics 91, Heat 72: Does Boston have one…

  3. Everything is no big deal to the Miami Heat, including blowout to Boston Celtics

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:21 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    There is no “maybe this is a good thing” here for the Miami Heat. There should be no “just the wake up call they needed.” This team, with the aspirations it has, should not be looking for wake-up calls. They should be looking for toe tags. Miami’s 91-72 loss to the Celtics on Sunday should…

  4. Video: Westbrook’s ridiculous half-court alley-oop to Durant

    Apr 2, 2012, 12:46 AM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    Just in case you hadn’t seen this during the game, or on pretty much every highlight show since then, here is Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant connecting on a ridiculous half-court alley-oop pass as part of the clinic they put on against the Bulls on Sunday. It’s plays like this that remind you just how…

  5. Bynum leaves Lakers game with “moderate” ankle sprain

    Apr 1, 2012, 11:45 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum, Gary Vitti

    Well, at least now Andrew Bynum has a good excuse for not being Mike Brown’s huddle… Bynum sprained his ankle late in the first quarter of the Lakers game Monday against the Warriors when he landed on teammate Josh McRoberts’ foot. Bynum left the game and went back to the locker room soon after it…

  6. Boston would like to state for the record that they are not too old, are still a contender, and you should not mess with them

    Apr 1, 2012, 7:24 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    In Boston’s 92-71 win over Miami on Sunday, the Celtics opened the game and took their will to live. Rajon Rondo decided from the outset to destroy the Heat and did so, slicing in-between and through the Heat. There’s a lot to be said about Miami’s effort, cohesion, and generally disturbing level of terribleness. But…

  7. Thunder show off against Bulls as a question of athleticism comes into play

    Apr 1, 2012, 4:26 PM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    Derrick was out, and had he played, this would have been a totally different game. Let’s just get that out in front right now. There is just no way to understate the impact that Derrick Rose, last season’s MVP, might have had on the Thunder’s 92-78 win vs. the Bulls on Sunday. This team is…

  8. Andrew Bynum has very little respect for Mike Brown’s… huddles

    Apr 1, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Andrew Bynum had the big blow-up with Mike Brown a few weeks ago where he tossed up a three, and then pouted about being benched for the three and poor defensive rotations. And on Sunday, after a disappointing win, if there is such a thing, over the New Orleans Hornets, reporters asked Bynum about Mike…

  9. With this season done, will Jeremy Lin be a Knick next season?

    Apr 1, 2012, 10:59 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    Now what, Jeremy Lin? I don’t mean the next six weeks — that is surgery and rehab for the torn meniscus in his knee. He’ll work hard with the hopes of joining the Knicks in the playoffs. But by the time he is back and able to really help, it may well be too late.…

  10. Rose to miss Sunday game against Thunder

    Apr 1, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Derrick Rose

    From the Chicago Tribune: Bulls guard Derrick Rose will miss his 10th consecutive game Sunday at Oklahoma City as he continues to recover from a groin injury. Rose admitted his disappointment in not being able to face close friend Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and the Western-Conference leading Thunder. But Rose continues to have issues running.…

  11. Video: Brandon Jennings’ behind-the-back, twisting layup

    Apr 1, 2012, 12:56 AM EST

    Bucks' Jennings goes to the basket against Bulls' Brewer during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    This was the best shot of the night…. well, second best. Anthony Davis of Kentucky had the best. But Brandon Jennings was impressive on this break against the Grizzlies. Unfortunately there was not enough of this for the Bucks, who need to start racking up a lot of wins if they plan to catch the…

  12. Kobe has day only Kobe could have, caps it with game winner

    Mar 31, 2012, 8:11 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Saturday was vintage Kobe… or at least vintage 2012 Kobe. He looked tired — as he has a lot lately, which is why we have all watched his shooting percentages drop — and started the game 0-for-15 shooting with zero points through three quarters. Yes, you read that right. Zero points on 15 missed shots.…

  13. Jeremy Lin out six weeks with knee surgery for meniscus tear

    Mar 31, 2012, 6:24 PM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks have just announced Jeremy Lin is out six weeks after tests found a torn meniscus in his right knee, per the New York Times. Jeremy Lin is out 6 weeks w/small,chronic meniscal tear in knee, team says — Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) March 31, 2012 This season cannot get weirder or more emotionally volatile…

  14. Joakim Noah can dance if he wants to, he can leave your friends behind

    Mar 31, 2012, 4:09 PM EST

    oakim Noah

    Presented without comment. From CSNChicago: OK, fine, two comments. 1. Apparently it’s fine to dance after a win, just not during a win, on the sideline. 2. Joakim Noah is awesome.

  15. Video: Kevin Garnett sets up shop in Al Jefferson’s cerebral cortex

    Mar 31, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    This is your monthly reminder that Kevin Garnett is a real sweetheart. I won’t revisit the debates on Garnett. You have your opinion at this point and it won’t change. His antics are either the mark of a true warrior or the silly behavior of a fake bully. His intensity is either an overdramatic performance…

  16. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    Mar 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    hellrufus

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…

  17. Thibodeau says he’s “fine” with contract situation as report states … well, that he’s not

    Mar 31, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Tom Thibodeau

    It’s easy to get lost in the recent past. The Bulls are a monstrously successful organization. They’ve won six championships in team history, all in the past 21 years, and have consistently made the playoffs. They’re an ATM machine for their owner, Jerry Reinsdorf, who also owns the White Sox, an equally successful venture. They…

  18. Video: J.J. Hickson violates DeAndre Jordan’s personal space

    Mar 31, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    J.J. Hickson is considered a bust, a washout, a nobody. He was supposed to be a building block in Cleveland, flamed out, was traded to Sacramento for Omri Casspi and a draft pick, flamed out, was waived. Portland picked him up after they started tanking to take a flyer on him. He wasn’t supposed to…

  19. Dwyane Wade’s nephew shot in wave of violence in Chicago

    Mar 31, 2012, 2:34 AM EST

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    Heat star Dwyane Wade’s nephew was one of 13 people shot — two fatally — in a violence spree in Chicago. Wade said that he learned of what happened Thursday night and said his nephew was on his mind as he dropped 30 on the Toronto Raptors in a Heat win Friday night. From the…

  20. Grizzlies’ owner promises not to sell team if goal is to move it

    Mar 30, 2012, 11:40 PM EST

    Image (1) Heisley-thumb-275x393-14169.jpeg for post 2659

    Basically, Michael Heisley has promised not to be Howard Schultz. Reports had surfaced that billionaire Larry Ellison is sniffing around the Memphis Grizzlies, looking to buy them. Which scared Grizzlies fans because Ellison has been looking for a team to move to San Jose. There’s a few reasons that is not going to happen, but…
