  2. Mark Jackson has good players in Golden State now, can he lead them to wins?

    Aug 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Mark Jackson Warriors

    Last season, it wouldn’t have mattered if Golden State brought in John Wooden circa 1968 to coach the team — they didn’t have enough talent on the roster to win a lot of games. And what talent they did have kept getting injured. Mark Jackson kind of had a free pass to learn how to…

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors won’t be able to tank next year if they try. Well, OK, if they try they will. But it’s going to be a lot harder, because all of a sudden, their ten-man rotation isn’t just decent, it’s downright pretty good. Watching the Warriors’ moves over the past year has been an exercise in…

    Brandon Rush is going to be on an NBA roster next year. And he’ll inspire some hope in a fan base that sees his potential as a scorer and they will dream about how maybe their coach/system can bring that out of him. But what fan base that will be remains up in the air.…

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

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

    When Larry Bird was retained as President of Basketball Operations for the Pacers, there was an interesting wrinkle. Kevin Pritchard, not longer-tenured David Morway, was tapped for the GM position under Bird. It was thought that was because Morway, having interviewed for vacant positions around the league, was simply headed elsewhere. Turns out that’s true,…

    Dec 12, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Chris-Paul-lakers-trade-killed

    Last Friday, David Stern — acting as some amalgam of both owner of the New Orleans Hornets and commissioner of the NBA — put the kibosh on a trade that would’ve sent Chris Paul to the Lakers, brought Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, and Lamar Odom to the Hornets, and shipped Pau Gasol to the Rockets.…
