David Lee

  1. Nuggets reportedly parted ways with George Karl because he wasn’t listening to management

    Jun 7, 2013, 10:23 AM EDT

    George Karl

    When the Nuggets informed George Karl that they would be parting ways with the tenured head coach on Thursday, it was definitely surprising, but it wasn’t necessarily a complete shock. Karl earned the Coach of the Year award for guiding Denver to 57 regular season wins and the best home record in the league, but…

    David Lee strained his hip flexor in the first round and was out, except for a couple Willis Reed-like appearances. He wasn’t moving very well. But he should be ready to go for training camp after getting surgery on his hip on Wednesday. Lee made the surgery public by posting the picture you see to…

  3. Andris Biedrins to exercise player option, return to Warriors next season

    May 24, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan drives to the basket against Golden State Warriors Andris Biedrins during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

  4. Dwight Howard reportedly adds Hawks and Warriors to his free agent list

    May 23, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the Dwight Howard free agency news cycle rolls on, the latest report has him expanding the list of teams he’ll consider signing with this summer. It’s been previously reported that Howard is most intrigued by the Houston Rockets, thanks in no small part to a young star already in place there in the form…

  5. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  6. GM on Warriors turnaround: “Sense of desperation has passed”

    May 20, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Just three seasons ago, the Golden State Warriors were a 26-win team with Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette as their two leading scorers — this was a team in need of a radical overhaul. Enter new ownership willing to invest in winning, new players to go with then rookie Stephen Curry, a new coach in…

  7. Harrison Barnes’ playoff scoring surge merely step one of two

    May 17, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes, Cory Joseph

    Harrison Barnes had a solid regular season, making the All-Rookie first team as a debatable choice for that honor. He started 81 games for the playoff-bound Warriors, but Barnes took a back seat to Stephen Curry, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Jarrett Jack, Carl Landry and, when healthy, Andrew  Bogut. Again being the seventh banana on…

  8. Warriors’ David Lee admits he likely need surgery after season

    May 13, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    David Lee, Stephen Curry

    Sunday David Lee tried to give it a go again — he played nearly eight minutes off the bench, went 0-2 shooting, was -12, but he did have five rebounds. Still, he’s not the same player following the hip flexor injury that was supposed to keep him out for the playoffs. Lee knows it. He’s…

  9. Luol Deng officially day-to-day, but seems doubtful for remainder of the series vs. Heat

    May 13, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Luol Deng

    Luol Deng has been dealing with complications from a spinal tap he underwent late in the Bulls first round series against the Nets. Now that we’re approaching Game 4 of his team’s series against the Heat, things don’t seem to be improving quickly enough that a return to the court would seem likely anytime soon.…

  10. Now that Tracy McGrady has played in the second round, who’s the best active player never to do so?

    May 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Ten years after he said “It feels good to get in the second round,” Tracy McGrady finally played in the second round of an NBA playoff series. Now a role player with the Spurs, McGrady played the final 51 seconds of San Antonio’s Game 2 loss Wednesday. He never led a team to the second…

  11. Spurs ride strong nights from Tony Parker and Tim Duncan to take down Warriors

    May 11, 2013, 2:24 AM EDT

    Spurs' Duncan pats team mate Parker on the head during their Game 3 win over the Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    It took 3 games, but the Spurs finally started to look like themselves against the Warriors. The ball movement was back, the defensive discipline was there and with those two things in place the Spurs took control back in the series with a 102-92 win in game 3. After the game Gregg Popovich said that…

  12. Golden State playing some good defense against Spurs, too

    May 10, 2013, 9:39 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is defended by Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Golden State’s offense has been undoubtedly impressive these playoffs. After David Lee went down and Mark Jackson went small they exposed the Nuggets three point defense. Now the Warriors are making the older Tim Duncan pay for not showing out at the arc on picks, they are not letting San Antonio hide Tony Parker on…

  13. Bogut says his ankles got so bad he considered retiring

    May 10, 2013, 2:26 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Andrew Bogut has been what Golden State needed him to be these playoffs. After David Lee went down Bogut stepped up and has played well inside, being physical and protecting the rim, setting solid screens, providing some inside to balance out the crazy outside from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He’s averaged 29 minutes a…

  14. Joakim Noah defends Derrick Rose, says critics should ‘shut up’

    May 7, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    After the Bulls stunned the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday, Joakim Noah fielded a question about how proud he was of his team, considering all they’ve been able to accomplish so far without the services of their All-Star and MVP point guard, Derrick Rose. Noah wasn’t exactly pleased with…

    May 5, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James reads the label on his Most Valuable Player trophy during a news conference held by the NBA and Miami Heat in Miami

    The news we’ve known about for a few days now became official on Sunday, as LeBron James was named the league’s Most Valuable Player for the fourth time in his career. There was no suspense surrounding the crowning of James, but there was some curiosity to see whether or not he might be a unanimous…

  17. David Lee says there’s ‘zero’ chance that he could play a significant role for Warriors against Spurs

    May 5, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    When the news broke that David Lee was active and expected to play for the Warriors in Game 6 against the Nuggets, it was somewhat shocking, to say the least. Lee was supposed to be out for the season, after suffering a torn hip flexor muscle in Game 1 of the series. Lee didn’t do…

  18. Jarrett Jack rejected Warriors’ extension talks

    May 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    Jarrett Jack will hit free agency this summer as the third-place finisher in Sixth Man of the Year voting, a key cog in the Warriors’ upset of the Nuggets and a player in line for a raise. Jack made $5.4 million this season, arguably the best of his career. At 29, he’s really seemed to…

  19. Warriors break game open in the 3rd, hold on late to clinch series over Nuggets

    May 3, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    There will be no game 7. The Warriors did what many, including me, thought they could not do before this series started. By holding on to beat the Nuggets 92-88 in game 6, they clinched the series and head to the 2nd round where they’ll face the San Antonio Spurs for the right to advance…

  20. Report: David Lee cleared to play for Warriors in game 6

    May 2, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    So much for that torn hip flexor ending David Lee‘s season. In a stunning development, Lee has been cleared to play in game 6 for the Warriors according to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports. Lee has missed the last four games of the series after he left game 1 early in the 4th quarter after injuring…

  21. Facing Elimination, Nuggets need to pull out all the stops against Warriors

    Apr 30, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    George Karl, Andre Iguodala

    Few people expected we’d be at this point this soon, if they even thought we’d be here at all. The Nuggets are facing elimination in the fifth game of their series versus the Warriors — a series many had them winning at the outset, with even more jumping on the bandwagon after David Lee was…

  22. Frustrated Faried kicked hole in locker room wall Sunday

    Apr 29, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried should be frustrated. He came back for Game two of the Nuggets series against Golden State right at the same time David Lee went out. Yet the Warriors have won three straight on the floor as Andrew Bogut and Carl Landry have stepped up inside the paint and, to the best of my…

  23. Andrew Bogut’s big night included some big dunks (VIDEO)

    Apr 29, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut

    When the Golden State Warriors were trading for Andrew Bogut, this is the guy they were hoping to get — the Bogut from before the back and ankle injuries, the defensive force who had some offensive game. And could throw down a dunk or two as well. Which he did all over JaVale McGee. Bogut…

  24. Warriors shoot, play solid defense and take control of series 3-1 over Nuggets

    Apr 29, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry reacts during their NBA Western Division quarter-final playoff game against the Denver Nuggets in Oakland

    When David Lee went down for the playoffs with a torn hip flexor, the Warriors were going to go small and it was hard to see how they were going to slow down a Denver team that led the NBA in points in the paint this past season. Not that Lee’s a defensive force, but…

  25. Westbrook officially out for playoffs following knee surgery

    Apr 27, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook looks on during a timeout against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Russell Westbrook underwent successful surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee on Saturday, Oklahoma City officially announced. He will make a full recovery. That’s the good news if you’re an Oklahoma City Thunder fan. He will be out for these entire playoffs. That’s the bad news. The question of his return really…
