    May 12, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Magic Johnson

    It’s amazing when people tend to dismiss what Magic Johnson says about the Lakers. He’s arguably the greatest player in franchise history, is known as a close and personal friend of owner Jerry Buss, still holds an official positions inside the front office, has held an ownership stake in the team as recently as two…

    Denver more than held serve on its home court in Thursday night’s Game 6 against the Lakers; the team made a statement. Facing their second elimination game of the series, the Nuggets made sure this one was never in doubt, opening the game on a 13-0 run and leading by as many as 28 points…

    The “Birdman” was at shootaround Thursday morning with his teammates. Chris Andersen, the Nuggets reserve big man, was there after police had come and searched his house that morning, taking a lot of computers and other equipment as part of an investigation by their Internet Crimes Against Children Division. We don’t know much, but we…

    May 10, 2012, 5:51 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    Game 6 — it means somebody will be punching their ticket to the next round, but others are headed to a win-or-go-home Game 7. We’ve got three Game 6s tonight, a couple we didn’t expect to see. Who is going to push it to a Game 7? Here is a look at each of the…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    UPDATE 4:18 pm: The NBA has made it official, James Harden is your runaway winner of the Sixth Man of the Year award. Of the 118 ballots cast 115 had Harden No. 1, the other three had Philadelphia’s Lou Williams in the top spot. As I said below, those three people should have to explain…

  9. Video: Kobe Bryant’s ridiculous scoop layup Tuesday

    May 9, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

    Lakers guard Kobe Bryant looks for an offensive rebound between Denver Nuggets  Al Harrington  and JaVale McGee

    Tuesday night was one of those nights when the rest of the Lakers were passive at times, other guys were just missing shots so Kobe Bryant tries to step into the void for the Lakers. He’ll take that on. It leads to 43 points, but on a night when he is 9-21 shooting from beyond…

  10. Nuggets, motivated by Bynum’s words, avoid elimination with Game 5 win over Lakers

    May 9, 2012, 3:47 AM EDT

    javale-mcgee-lakers-game5

    The Nuggets were facing elimination heading into Tuesday’s Game 5 at Staples Center, and as if seeing their season come to an end wasn’t motivation enough, Lakers center Andrew Bynum provided them with a little something extra, courtesy of comments he made at one of the team’s practice sessions before this one. “Closeout games are…

  11. Mike Brown says that stupid idea to intentionally lose Game 5 to get Metta World Peace back is stupid

    May 8, 2012, 5:36 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Here’s the situation: if the Lakers-Nuggets series goes to six games, Metta World Peace‘s suspension would end, and he would be able to appear in either Game 7 of the Lakers-Nuggets series or, more importantly, Game 1 of the Lakers-Thunder series if the Lakers ended up beating the Nuggets. Naturally, some people have been wondering…

  12. Lakers win in Denver to take 3-1 series lead over Nuggets, but it certainly wasn’t easy

    May 7, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    lakers-nuggets-game4

    It took until the game’s final few possessions, but ultimately, the outcome ended up being what we all expected. The Lakers took Game 4 from the Nuggets in Denver 92-88, but the heroes for L.A. weren’t necessarily the likely ones, and the game was anything but easy for the victors. The Lakers didn’t come close…

    George Karl had a quiet confidence about his team heading home to Denver, even after dropping the first two games of the series to the Lakers in Los Angeles. He saw a lot of good things in his club, especially in a close Game 2 contest, and couldn’t wait to get back to the Pepsi…

  14. You’re not going to like this, but LeBron has been great in fourth quarters this season

    May 4, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Three

    We all saw the NBA finals last year. We all know the knock. We’ve all heard the jokes. Why would LeBron James be a great hockey player? There’s no fourth quarter. Funny. Except, this year LeBron James has been the best second quarter player in the NBA. Over at ESPN, the fantastic Tom Haberstroh had…

  15. Nuggets look to run way back into series with Lakers

    May 4, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Kenneth Faried

    The Lakers present nearly every team they face with a matchup dilemma — do you put your biggest players out there and try to match their front line size, or do you go small and try to run them out of the building. Denver is down 0-2 to the Los Angeles heading into a must-win…

  17. Should Olympic basketball be under-23 like soccer?

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    This summer, the United States will send it’s best 12 best basketball players to London to represent our nation in the Olympic Games. Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban hates the idea, and he’s not alone. This summer will be the 20th anniversary of the original Dream Team and for some the bloom is off the rose.…

    Before the playoffs, George Karl said the Nuggets would go as far as Ty Lawson could take them. In Game 1 against the Lakers, Lawson got into the lane only to find the long arms of Andrew Bynum there to block and alter shots. Lawson went 3-for-11 shooting with two assists. As a team the…

  20. Is next season the season John Wall breaks out?

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:34 PM EDT

    John Wall

    I’ll admit, I was fooled. I saw John Wall crisscrossing the country looking phenomenal in the wide-open, no-defense rec leagues and charity games last summer and thought he could translate that to the NBA. I thought he looked healthy. When left open his jumper fell, when given room to use his athletic gifts he was…

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before the Lakers opened the playoffs at home against the Nuggets on Sunday, George Karl was asked at the beginning of his press conference if he thought his team had a chance.

    It’s end of season award time and… well, I don’t have an official ballot. But not being official never stopped me before. So here would be my votes for the winners, plus some people I also would have put on the list. Note that the one exception is the Most Improved Player category, an award…
