  1. Jason Kidd would like to be a general manager when he retires

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Jason Kidd is not ready to retire after this season. He will be 40 next season but has played solidly this season — 5.9 points and 5.2 assists per game with a PER of 12.4. He might be reduced to being a backup — especially if he returns to Dallas and they fulfill their goal…

  2. Winderman: Odd NBA executive vote mostly anti-Riley sour grapes

    Pat Riley

    So what does the NBA think of the notion of securing a big bag of money and throwing it in front of three of the game’s best players? Apparently not much. So despite landing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh during last summer’s free-agency-free-for-all, Heat President Pat Riley received only a partial cut of…

  3. Kevin McHale wants to coach the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls fanbase just hangs their heads.

    May 11, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kevin McHale was a smart basketball player, he is a smart man. He knows a good coaching gig when he sees one. And he sees and wants one — the Chicago Bulls. The entire city of Chicago just had a chill run up their spine like they walked out of a lakeside building on a…

  4. Bulls John Paxson apologizes for incident with Vinny Del Negro

    May 4, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    Speaking publicly for the first time since the March 30 incident, Bulls Vice President John Paxson apologized to Vinny Del Negro, the Bulls organization and its fans. “I hold myself accountable, and responsible,” Paxson said. “I am not at all proud of how I handled the situation.” The situation was after a game against the…

  5. Vinny Del Negro is out. Now Bulls: Who you got that's better?

    May 4, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    We’re going to take Bulls General Manager Gar Forman at his word. He stuck with his themes at the press conference this morning where he talked about the firing of Vinny Del Negro. (I watched the conference online). Forman deserves the break, he was thrown out to the wolves to explain this. He was the…

  6. Joakim Noah latest Bull to support Vinny Del Negro

    Apr 29, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Players support their coaches. We’ve all seen just terrible college football coaches — guys who needed the axe — having players making public offers of support. Normally you don’t read too much into that. But the public support for Vinny Del Negro by Bulls players — particularly Derrick Rose — has to give the Bulls…

  7. Vinny Del Negro to twist in the wind while Bulls management pretends to think about decision

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:47 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro’s Bulls put up a fight. They did not back down from the mighty Cavaliers. LeBron James talked about their energy, and said the Bulls were well coached. Sure, the Bulls only won one game, but they were completely overmatched. All you can ask in that situation is to see some fight, and…

  8. Vinny Del Negro: dead coach walking

    Apr 25, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro has not done a bad job this season. The city of Chicago just rolled their eyes, but he hasn’t. The Bulls sacrificed this season on the alter of 2010 free agency. They brought in no new talent. Then as injuries ravaged the team they traded John Salmons away, so he could spark…
