    Jan 8, 2013, 5:06 PM EST

    Jim Boylan

    Scott Skiles and the Milwaukee Bucks, a couple a lot of people expected to break up this summer, decided that it was better to do it now rather than later. Skiles is out. It was not a firing, it was a mutual decision, both sides were ready to move on. Which puts Jim Boylan in…

    Kevin Martin

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

    2012 NBA Draft

    25 thoughts, observations, and wisecracks about the 2012 NBA Draft, now that there’s been some time to see the whole board.   1.

    The Warriors are in a hurry to rebuild, apparently. After trading Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh to get what they considered to be their franchise defensive center, a must for Mark Jackson’s plans since he was hired, the Warriors shut down their entire team and tanked so hard in order to keep their draft pick.…

  10. Call it gritty, ugly, whatever — Knicks win over Bucks means playoffs (probably)

    Apr 11, 2012, 11:36 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Early on Wednesday night it was all Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks offense, it was pretty. But against a feisty Bucks team you knew that wasn’t going to be enough. With these Knicks nothing comes easy. They were going to need defense. They were going to need someone to step up. They were going to…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Mayo sticks dagger in Thunder

    O.J. Mayo

    What you missed while watching Kentucky win the national title they seemed destined to win…. Memphis 94, Oklahoma City 88: Apparently the Thunder are not comfortable on top of my (and everybody’s) power rankings.

    stephen curry

    Stephen Curry has had a hard time staying healthy. He’s tweaked his surgically repaired right ankle more times this season than we’d like to count, including in Phoenix back on Feb. 22, and most recently in a win over the Mavericks on March 10. With the Warriors making the deal Tuesday that sent Monta Ellis…

    Mar 13, 2012, 9:03 PM EST

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    What happened to the Golden State franchise that would only trade Monta Ellis to Orlando if they got Dwight Howard back? This isn’t that. In the first of the deadline trades this year, Golden State will send Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  14. Report: Injured or not, Warriors may make run at Andrew Bogut

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:06 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut may not be available until the playoffs at best. The Golden State Warriors are not making the playoffs. (Sorry Warriors fans, I know it’s mathematically possible, but you need to accept it. You can’t keep the same mediocre roster and expect different results.) Still, the Warriors are looking to make a run at…

    What you missed while getting arrested for attacking people and police with a toy light saber… Knicks 113, Pistons 86: Carmelo Anthony returned, he had 25 efficient points while playing his best game in weeks, and the Knicks cruise to an easy win.

    Jul 27, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    It’s a sad story that has touched large parts of college basketball. David Salinas was an investment manager and AAU official in Houston who it turns out was running a ponzi scheme and bilked a number of college coaches — including Billy Gillespie and Lute Olsen — for big money. This could get even messier…

  25. 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…
