  1. Report: Clippers (read: Chris Paul) have eyes on free agent David West

    May 21, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    David West

    Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and… David West? What could go wrong? David West has been a rock-solid veteran big man for the Pacers this season and has talked repeatedly about how much he loved playing there this year. But the NBA is a business and West is an unrestricted free agent this summer. Teams are…

  2. Why there’s a 100 percent chance the NBA lottery is fixed

    May 21, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel, Lakeem Jackson

    The NBA lottery is fixed. There’s no question about it. Just as last year’s draft order was determined by a David Stern-led conspiracy, this year’s will be determined the same way. Think about it. If the NBA lottery really were legitimate, why not conduct the draw publically rather than in a back room? If the…

  3. Shabazz Muhammad: I’m the best player in the NBA Draft

    May 20, 2013, 4:07 PM EDT

    Minnesota v UCLA

    In the last three years and five of the last six, the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft has been a player who declared after only one year of college basketball (Blake Griffin being the exception). At one point, Shabazz Muhammad was rated as the the No. 1 incoming freshman, so it’s reasonable he…

  4. Report: Dwight Howard not going to Clippers… did we need a report for that?

    May 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    It’s Dwight Howard silly rumor season. Everyone knows the Lakers are still the front-runners in this race but the latest reports have the Rockets and Mavericks at least in a good stalking position to make a move once this race moves into the home stretch. Other teams may try to get into the mix as…

  5. Spurs show they have too much offense for Grizzlies to handle in Game 1 destruction

    May 19, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs guard Green shoots against Memphis Grizzlies guard Conley during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball game in San Antonio

    In getting to the Western Conference Finals, the Grizzlies played two teams that couldn’t put together solid execution on the offensive end of the floor anywhere near consistently over the course of those playoff series. A lot of the credit for that goes to the Memphis defense, of course. But in the first round, the…

  6. Spurs would like to remind you they are very good, crush Grizzlies in Game 1

    May 19, 2013, 6:35 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The San Antonio Spurs are never the “it” team. Never the sexy squad with high-flying stars casual fans gravitate toward in the postseason. The collective national will was behind Stephen Curry and Golden State last round. Then a whole lot of prognosticators — very smart, good ones — picked Memphis this round. The Grizzlies were…

  7. LeBron James, Chris Paul teach and motivate future NBA stars at a 2008 camp (VIDEO)

    May 19, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    This video was recently released by the folks that run the website for LeBron James, and it gives us a glimpse into the types of motivational words and teachings that young NBA prospects received from James and Chris Paul five years ago. The highlights come from a 2008 summer camp that took place before the…

  8. Report: Vinny Del Negro to meet with Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling this weekend

    May 17, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT

    Chris Paul ,  Vinny Del Negro

    Vinny Del Negro coached the Clippers to a franchise-best 56 regular season wins, yet he is a man without a contract for next season. It’s been widely assumed that the team would go in another direction after L.A. was bounced from the playoffs in the first round, especially after getting out to a two games…

  9. George Hill injury jeopardizes Pacers’ identity

    May 17, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    George Hill, Roy Hibbert, D.J. Augustin

    The puzzle pieces have changed, but the picture of the sailboat they form has not. Under Frank Vogel, the Pacers have relied heavily on their starters. Between them, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert excel in all areas of the court, offensively and defensively, and really balance each other. But…

  10. Dirk Nowitzki plans to take a ‘significant pay cut’ in next contract with the Mavericks

    May 16, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki has played all 15 of his NBA seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, and has amassed quite a fortune while doing so. Not counting endorsements, the 11-time All-Star has pulled in $204 million in career earnings, which puts him fifth all-time in that category in league history. As a result, when it’s time for…

  11. Report: Clippers consider keeping Vinny Del Negro

    May 16, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    Vinny Del Negro always had one big advantage in keeping the Clippers head coaching job. And no, it wasn’t that the team won a club record 56 games this season. It’s that owner Donald Sterling likes him. A lot. That open secret is worth noting as the fate of Del Negro’s contract is in Sterling’s…

  12. Why do the Knicks keep playing Jason Kidd?

    May 15, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd has scored exceptionally during the playoffs. There are many ways to evaluate scoring, but here’s how five players rank by one measure: Jason Kidd: 73 Carmelo Anthony: 24 Stephen Curry: 23 Kevin Durant: 21 LeBron James: 17 That’s how many points each player has scored during the 2013 playoffs, as a percentage of…

  13. LeBron second highest paid athlete in America, Kobe fourth

    May 15, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The answer is $56.5 million. If you wondered how much money LeBron James made last year, there is the answer to your query. That is the second most of any athlete in the United States, according to Sports Illustrated and its annual Top 50 earners report that came out Wednesday. LeBron trailed only Floyd Mayweather…

  14. Dirk Nowitzki says he’d love for the Mavs to land Dwight Howard or Chris Paul in free agency

    May 15, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    dirk nowitzki dwight howard

    The Mavericks missed the playoffs this season for the first time in 13 years, and if we’ve learned anything from Mark Cuban over time, it’s that mediocrity in Dallas won’t be tolerated for very long at all. Dirk Nowitzki is equally competitive, and doesn’t want to spend the twilight of his career playing for a…

  15. PBT Extra: Talking healthy Bulls, bright future in Memphis

    May 14, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Monday night’s Heat win in Chicago wasn’t fun for anyone. Not Bulls fans, obviously, who really had nothing to cheer for after the team opened the game 1-of-12 shooting. Heat fans will take the win but it wasn’t pretty, and for those of us who are just fans of the game that wasn’t enjoyable to…

  16. Andrew Wiggins would be the No. 1 pick this year. Kansas lucks out.

    May 14, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    0515_wiggins_0

    The NBA’s much-ridiculed one-and-done rule was not meant for guys like Andrew Wiggins. It was meant to protect owners from themselves and draft picks like Leon Smith or Darius Miles (and a host of others). We can make the a good argument that even with an extra year NBA teams still make some pretty bad…

  17. Andre Iguodala complains of politics in All-Defensive team choices, but Larry Sanders should have the biggest gripe

    May 14, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Andre Iguodala didn’t make the NBA’s All-Defensive first or second team, and shortly after voting was released, he tweeted: https://twitter.com/andre/status/334123189863079937 It’s easy to see why Iguodala would expect to make an All-Defensive team. Iguodala finished ahead of one first-team guard (Chris Paul) and both second-team guards (Avery Bradley and Mike Conley) in Defensive Player of…

  18. LeBron James, Joakim Noah headline NBA All-Defensive team

    May 13, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    If you were anchoring your defense with one center in the NBA right now who would it be? For the past few years the answer was Dwight Howard, he was the perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate (voted on by the media) and NBA All-Defensive First Team, voted on by the coaches. But if…

  19. Kevin Durant: ‘I can do a lot more’

    May 13, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant falls to the floor against Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen in the final moments in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Anyway you slice it, Kevin Durant is doing a lot for the Thunder. Traditional stats say Durant is averaging 34.0 points, 10.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals in 44.3 minutes per game since Russell Westbrook’s injury. Advanced stats say Durant has 2.2 win shares for a team that has won five playoff games, which means…

  20. Derrick Rose not playing Game 3. Shocking. Deng, Hinrich also out.

    May 10, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    Heat Bulls Basketball

    I can’t believe it — after missing 96 games Derrick Rose decided not to come back in the middle of a physical, intense playoff series to be guarded by Lebron James. Shocking. Who could have possibly seen such a thing coming? Despite all logic and all evidence to the contrary, some weak reports started to…

  21. Grant Hill would like to remind you doctors cleared him to play so he came back early

    May 9, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Washington Wizards

    “Derrick Rose has been cleared by the team doctors, what is his problem?” “Derrick Rose owes it to his teammates to come back.” (That would be Steve Kerr talking on TNT during the Bulls Game 2 loss). The pressure from the public and media on Rose to return from his ACL surgery a year ago…

  22. Matt Barnes looking for a payday in free agency after career-best season with the Clippers

    May 9, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    Throughout his 10-year NBA career, Matt Barnes has always been more of an agitator than an asset. There’s a reason Barnes has played for nine different teams during that span, and had never been able to secure a long-term deal at any time when given multiple chances at free agency. Besides his underwhelming numbers, Barnes…

  23. Vinny Del Negro expected to meet with Clippers’ owner next week

    May 8, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    It’s expected that Vinny Del Negro’s days are numbered as the coach of the Clippers. After a first-round playoff exit it’s a matter of when the axe falls not if. The “when” may well be when Del Negro meets with Clippers owner Donald Sterling next week, reports Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. Vinny Del Negro is…

  24. Clippers confident Chris Paul will stay with team this summer. They should be.

    May 7, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul and his agent are going to get calls — he is the best point guard in the NBA and he is an unrestricted free agent. He can go anywhere he wants this summer. Teams are going to take a shot. But they all know it’s a long shot. At best. The Clippers are…

  25. Report: Suns waiting to pick GM because they want Grant Hill to take job

    May 7, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    This would be a very Suns thing to do: Look past the guys who have worked hard in this role to earn the job and give it to the name guy you like who has no experience. The Phoenix Suns are in the process of hiring a new general manager for a team that needs…
