    We live in a fantasy world where we like to believe that making it to the NBA is a meritocracy — only the very best get there because of skill and effort, not luck. But why should the NBA be any different than where you work? You’re telling me the hierarchy at your office is…

  3. Things were a little different for the NBA in London

    Mar 4, 2011, 8:08 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v New Jersey Nets

    In a lot of ways the NBA’s debut in London felt and looked like a regular NBA game (especially on television back home). Deron Williams broke Sonny Weems ankles on the crossover. DeMar DeRozan showed off a developing all-around game. The Raptors played no defense. Empty seats easy to spot in the crowd. Just like…

  6. Phil Jackson is not happy about his European vacation

    Sep 29, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    Personally, a trip to London and Barcelona sounds pretty good. I could go for one of those. Phil Jackson? Not so much. Actually he might really enjoy such a trip if it was just him and Jeannie Buss, but in the middle of training camp? This is what he told ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Dave McMenamin. “This training…

  7. Winderman: Team USA's core may be playing themselves out of jobs

    Sep 9, 2010, 2:23 PM EDT

    File this one under “conundrum” when it comes to USA Basketball and those at the back end of the Mike Krzyzewski’s roster at the World Championships. Should the United States win its final two games this weekend, it punches a ticket to the 2012 Olympics, with only the gold-medalists earning an automatic bid. That would…

  8. The long-shot way the USA Basketball could not qualify for the 2012 Olympics

    Aug 26, 2010, 4:27 PM EDT

    Okay, we admit this is a crazy long shot. So does Chris Tomasson of Fanhouse, who is in Istanbul and may have been in a hookah bar for all we know when he came up with it. But hear us out: It is possible for USA Basketball not to qualify for the 2012 Olympics in…

    David Stern has been saying he wanted to see some NBA regular season games overseas, and what David Stern wants David Stern gets.
