    Jamal Crawford, Pau Gasol

    With its core getting up there in years (save Rajon Rondo), the Boston Celtics need to add some more scoring firepower.

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Dwyane Wade’s knee was drained once during the playoffs, but for most of the postseason it was his knee draining his game. Wade’s trademark explosivness was gone, there was not much lift on his jumper, he moved more slowly than normal. He became a second option to LeBron In the coming weeks he is going…

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom back with the Clippers? Well, he wants to go somewhere he is comfortable and Los Angeles is that. And he wants to play for a team that could go deep in the playoffs, and the Clippers are that. Or, the Clippers could just buy him out and save some cash. But the Clippers…

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Mark Cuban and the Mavericks gambled — with the new luxury tax provisions looming they knew they needed to strip down their salary in the next couple years or pay a steep price. They had a window last year to do that, so unlike what most owners would have done, Cuband didn’t get the band…

    Daryl Morey

    Five years from now, we may remember this as the New Orleans Hornets draft. It’s the one where they landed Anthony Davis and set the franchise on a path to contention. But there are other teams that could be making bold moves to become contenders. Specifically, Houston and Portland could come out of Thursday night…

    Jeff Green

    Tuesday the NBA announced that the Oklahoma City Thunder had to surrender their 2013 second round pick to the Boston Celtics as added compensation in the Jeff Green trade. Which raised a lot of eyebrows. Why the punishment, what was being withheld? So now the NBA has given its explanation. And my eyebrows are still…

    What was long rumored and expected is now official. David Morway has resigned as the general manager of the Indiana Pacers and is leaving the organization, the team announced Tuesday. This is one of those “resign or we will can you” resignations, just so we’re clear. This clears the way for Kevin Pritchard, the former…

    Jun 26, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    It’s a heck of a recruiting pitch for John Calipari. Six guys from his NCAA title team are expected to go in this NBA draft — including Anthony Davis No. 1 overall and likely four or five in the first round. It’s a ridiculous number. This is the Kentucky Wildcats NBA draft. And really, not…

    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…

    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…

    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.…

    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…

    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…

    Jun 26, 2012, 12:19 PM EDT

    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…

    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.

    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…
