David Lee

  1. The unexpectedly expected rise of Dorell Wright

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:17 PM EST

    Dorell Wright

    If you had Dorell Wright pegged as a 20-point scorer or the league leader in three-pointers made a week into the season, I’d politely ask that you step toward the stake surrounded by kindling. We don’t take kindly to witches and soothsayers around here. In retrospect, though, it makes complete sense. Maybe not Wright’s .545…

  2. In case you missed it: Blake Griffin can sky

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:35 PM EST

    The Clippers and Blake Griffin take on Golden State tonight and that might be must-watch television. Yes, “Clippers” and “must watch” in the same sentence, but it’s Griffin. The man just skies, and in what should be a wide open game he should have chances. Plus Griffin on David Lee should be s show.

  3. NBA Season Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 21, 2010, 4:53 PM EST

    Warriors_huddle

    Last season: 26-56, which is kind of the record you end up with when you don’t play much defense. And Don Nelson had stopped caring about defense, or seemingly coaching half the time. But as much as that, it was an injury-ravaged season that kept the win total that low. Head Coach: Keith Smart, who…

  4. Warriors Lou Amundson to have surgery on his broken finger

    Oct 17, 2010, 8:33 PM EST

    Finally, Saturday night Lou Amundson got in a preseason game with the Golden State Warriors. And now he is out again. For a while. Amundson fractured that finger in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s game against Portland and now will need surgery on that finger, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. No date for…

  5. Warriors name starting five. That didn’t take long.

    Sep 30, 2010, 11:04 AM EST

    Keith Smart knows what he wants from the Warriors. And he knows who he wants to do it. Two days into training camp Smart named his starting five according to Matt Steinmetz of Comcast Bay Area: Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis, Dorell Wright, David Lee and Andris Biedrins. No real surprises on that list. In fact…

  6. Rondo is better than Derrick Rose, David Lee (in NBA 2K11 anyway)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EST

    Anybody want some chips, onion rings? The NBA 2K11 commercials are pretty clever.

  7. What we know about incoming Golden State owner Joe Lacob

    Jul 29, 2010, 8:43 PM EST

    Golden State fans have proceeded under this premise: Any owner not named Al Davis was going to be better than Chris Cohan. On that scale, Joe Lacob (and partner Peter Guber) qualifies. But what kind of owners will they be? Lacob, who will be the front man and was a minority owner in Boston, did…

  8. Somebody drank Jobu's rum, because there is an injury curse on the Warriors

    Jul 23, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Last year the Warriors were not hit with an injury bug, it was more like an injury plague of locust. In the nearly quarter century since the NBA started tracking this stuff, only one NBA team has ever lost more man games to injury. Golden State lost 501 man games last season. Then David Lee…

  9. David Lee out for World Championships, will not need surgery

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:32 PM EST

    UPDATE 4:32 pm: Lee has been diagnosed with “mallet finger” which is when the tendon that allows control of the part of the finger beyond the last joint comes off. The treatment: wear a split on your finger for six weeks. But this is fairly common and treatable. 3:22 pm: You had a feeling things…

  10. David Lee injures finger on first day of USA Basketball camp

    Jul 20, 2010, 8:09 PM EST

    UPDATE 8:09 pm: ESPN got a quote from Lee himself, and it doesn’t sound good: “I looked down and my finger was completely turned to the side,” Lee said. “It’s possibly a tendon or a dislocation of some sort. It’s something I’ve got to go have looked at either way. 6:38 pm: The biggest fear…

  11. Members of Team USA continue to drop like flies, Amar'e Stoudemire now doubtful for World Championships

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:26 AM EST

    When LeBron James decided he was too cool to play for Team USA this summer, it seemed inevitable that all the cool kids would follow suit. Though guys like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Carmelo Anthony may have been leaders on their own clubs, during the summer all things go through LeBron. Yet Team USA’s…

  12. David Lee is still the best citizen in the Knicks organization

    Jul 20, 2010, 10:17 AM EST

    David Lee isn’t even a Knick anymore and he is still the best representative of that organization. Which says plenty. A story in the New York Times explains how Lee was the only Knick — or former Knick, in this case — to attend the funeral for Scott Jaffer, a longtime N.B.A. security official who…

  13. Team USA: The B-Team that actually wants to be there

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:14 PM EST

    Yahoo! Sports reports that Jerry Colangelo has confirmed that not a single player from the 2008 Olympic team will join Team USA for the World Championships in Turkey this summer.  In the midst of a public outpouring of rage and disgust over the behavior of how and where various free agents decided to exercise their…

  14. David Lee headed to Golden State in sign-and-trade deal

    Jul 9, 2010, 2:09 AM EST

    David Lee is crossing country for some big checks, he has been traded to Golden State David Lee is going to Golden State — and that is good for him in that he will get paid. He agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that nets him $80 million over six years, shipping him to Golden State…

  15. Amar'e Stoudemire will only kind of leave the Suns empty-handed

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:38 AM EST

    UPDATE 11:38 AM: Although the plan described below is currently in place, LeBron James could make things a bit more interesting if he were to sign with the Knicks. From Paul Coro: However, if LeBron James picks New York today, the Suns could still have a chance at Lee. The Suns would have to do…

  16. Knicks, Warriors close to an Anthony Randolph, David Lee swap

    Jul 7, 2010, 10:53 PM EST

    There were questions about how David Lee fit into the seven-seconds-or-less New York Knicks offense last season. So now he could end up with Golden State — one of the few teams to play even faster. The Knicks and Warriors are close to a deal that would sign-and-trade David Lee to the West coast and…

  17. Bulls will do what they can, and move (sigh) Carlos Boozer and David Lee to the top of their wish list

    Jul 7, 2010, 12:38 PM EST

    Coming into free agency, the Chicago Bulls seemed to have it all: an up-and-coming point guard, a solid big man, one of the market’s most coveted coaches, decent role-playing talent, and oodles of cap space. The world was theirs, though now there’s a slight problem — it isn’t. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have both…

  18. Suns trying to get David Lee in sign-and-trade for Stoudemire

    Jul 6, 2010, 4:14 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire is not a New York Knick. Yet. Nobody can sign the paperwork until Thursday. That give the Suns to get a little value back for the man they almost traded at the deadline the last two years. Value back like David Lee, which is one scenario the Suns are working according to the…

  19. Count the Warriors among those looking to nab David Lee

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:30 PM EST

    The jury’s still out on exactly what kind of salary David Lee can command this off-season. Yet with Rudy Gay and Joe Johnson topping out on their earning potential, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see some team give Lee a max deal. Hooray for the Summer of 2010, where basketball paupers…

  20. Three-way trade rumored for Al Jefferson, Monta Ellis, and David Lee

    Jul 4, 2010, 3:01 PM EST

    Here’s a juicy one. NY Post reports that there’s a trade being discussed that would send Al Jefferson to the Warriors, Monta Ellis to the Knicks, and David Lee to the Timberwolves. Take a second to get your brain around that. What we’re really looking at if this rumor has any weight (and that’s a…

  21. Why on earth is Minnesota meeting with David Lee?

    Jul 3, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    So you’re David Kahn. You’ve just signed Darko Milicic for $20 million. You drafted a 23-year-old combo wing the same night you traded for Martell Webster (and drafted another small forward). You have one significant trade chip, Al Jefferson, who’s a phenomenal young player that for some reason you don’t want and who has great…

  22. Today's NBA free-agency schedule: The final LeBron act, and Stoudemire meets Knicks

    Jul 3, 2010, 10:41 AM EST

    LeBron James will meet with the Cleveland Cavaliers at 11:00AM EST, then with the Chicago Bulls at 1:30AM EST. That concludes James’ tour of teams on “the list.” He’s then expected to take Sunday to consider his options and discuss with his people on the holiday, then make his decision Monday. Again, “expected.” He very…

  23. San Antonio says they are not trading Tony Parker, but the Knicks are still interested

    May 12, 2010, 12:27 PM EST

    RC Buford says he wants to keep Tony Parker in San Antonio. He should — elite point guards at the peak of their game are hard to find. But if San Antonio can’t convince Tiago Splitter to come to the states from Europe, the Spurs will have to consider trading Parker, they don’t have other…

  24. David Lee would like to stay in New York, but really would like to get paid

    May 6, 2010, 5:55 PM EST

    Donnie Walsh has done a good job cleaning up the dung pile — and an expensive one at that — of a roster he was left with. New York is not a city renowned for patience, but it was warranted in this case as there was a lot of shoveling to do. Fans understood that.…

  25. Media members need not be protected, accountability in award voting is a must

    Apr 30, 2010, 12:12 PM EST

    As in most things related to the NBA, the ultimate goal should be transparency. Transparency in the officiating, especially in a post-Donaghy era. Transparency from the league office in how they deal with specific rulings, punishments, and edicts. Transparency from coaches and general managers, who optimally wouldn’t pretend to be vying for a playoff spot…
