    Tuesday would have been the first payday of the first payday of the year for NBA players — as of today they are missing paychecks. How much money are we talking? CNBC’s Darren Rovell breaks it out for some of the big names and yes, Kobe Bryant just missed a more than $1 million payday.…

  2. Krstic: NBA players will not be flocking to Europe

    Jul 1, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce high-fives recently acquired teammate center Nenad Krstic in Boston

    It is every player’s favorite threat — “I can always play in Europe.” Dirk Nowitzki, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, a ton of players have pulled out the Euro card as an option. It’s not really an option, not like they think. So warns Nenad Krstic, who spent the last several seasons in the NBA (Thunder…

  3. NBA Finals: Heat, Mavericks five keys to victory

    May 27, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    Miami always seemed like they had a chance if they just came together — and they did at the right time. Dallas has been a surprise. We all knew they were good but we had been conditioned to expect them to fall flat in the playoffs. Instead Tyson Chandler gave them defensive toughness and Dirk…

  4. Western Conference Finals Preview: Mavericks vs. Thunder

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant hands the ball to Dallas Mavericks head coach Carlisle in the closing seconds of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    SEASON RECORDS Mavericks: 57-25 (No. 3 seed in Western Conference) Thunder: 55-27 (No. 4 seed) SEASON SERIES Dallas won the regular season series 2-1, but the most recent of the games was Jan. 6 — back before the Kendrick Perkins trade, and when Caron Butler was healthy. Nowitzki didn’t play in the Thunder win. So…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Game 4, where we find out if the Lakers care

    May 8, 2011, 2:32 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    We can talk about matchups — like how the Lakers need to get some kind of production out of the point guard spot — but that’s not really the biggest key in Game 4 in Dallas on Sunday. It’s which Lakers team shows up. More than anything, the Lakers have looked mentally fatigued in this…

  6. Phil Jackson: “Ya, we’re worried now”

    Phil Jackson

    Kobe Bryant said after the Lakers dropped Game 1, they should be worried. The Lakers are realizing that these Mavericks are not the old Mavericks. They are not soft inside (hello Tyson Chandler) and they are veterans. Before Game 2 Phil Jackson echoed Kobe’s thoughts. “Ya, we’re worried now,” Jackson said. “This is a good…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Dallas, Los Angeles finally meet in postseason

    Phil Jackson Tyson Chandler

    Seriously, how has this not happened before? The Dallas Mavericks have been to the playoffs 11 consecutive years reaching all the NBA finals one time. The Lakers have been the Lakers in that same time, having been one of the most dominant teams in the NBA. Yet there has been no playoff meetings between these…

  8. Race to MVP still has five players in the running

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Derrick Rose is not your MVP. Not yet anyway. Dwight Howard is still making his case, while LeBron James’ candidacy is limping like the Heat the last five games. But that could turn around. Right now, we don’t know who the MVP is. Which is a good thing. A real race down the stretch is…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bulls just keep on winning ugly

    Jan 21, 2011, 3:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Chicago Bulls

    What you missed while figuring out how to bring a Woolly Mammoth to life… Bulls 82, Mavericks 77: I feel like I keep writing the sentence “The Bulls won an ugly game.” The Bulls are winning with defense and with Carlos Boozer out for a third straight the offense has been unimpressive. Derrick Rose and…
