    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    Spurs close out the season on top, but can they beat the Thunder in a playoff series? Can the Thunder get through the gauntlet in front of them to get a showdown with the Spurs?

    Kyrie Irving takes to Twitter to rip latest report saying he wants out of Cleveland.

  5. Report: Cavaliers sign Scotty Hopson for rest of season

    Mar 31, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    BASKET-EURL-ANADOLU-MILANO

    On Feb. 5, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Lakers, who literally ran out of players. That was the low point for Cleveland, which had already made its big splash by trading for Luol Deng and still lost six straight to fall to 12th – behind Boston! – in a putrid Eastern Conference. The season…

  6. Report: Terry Stotts’ coaching staff pessimistic about returning to Trail Blazers

    Mar 31, 2014, 10:22 AM EDT

    Terry Stotts

    The Portland Trail Blazers began the season a red-hot 31-9. Since, they’ve gone an underwhelming 17-18 – but that 35-game stretch has produced a better winning percentage than Portland had in either of the last two seasons. All success is relative. Though Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is no longer the Coach of the Year…

  7. LeBron James rejects Spencer Hawes dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Mar 19, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    That needed a Mutombo finger wag. Much to their credit the Cleveland Cavaliers hung around with the Miami Heat all game — and doing it without Kyrie Irving or Luol Deng. The difference in the game was LeBron James — 25 points in the first quarter and 43 for the game. Plus a couple key…

  8. Tuesday NBA grades: LeBron reminds Cleveland what they’re missing

    Mar 19, 2014, 2:44 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking it’s crazy that “Lost” is 10 years old… LeBron James, Miami Heat. Nobody likes it when their ex-girlfriend walks into the party looking smoking hot. LeBron pretty much did that to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night — he had 25 points in the…

  9. Cleveland Cavaliers apparently forget how to spell LeBron James’ name

    Mar 18, 2014, 10:39 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    LaBron deserves more respect from franchise he took so far.

  10. Kyrie Irving suffers potentially season-ending bicep injury

    Mar 17, 2014, 3:00 AM EDT

    Mike Brown, Kyrie Irving

    The Cleveland Cavaliers made the playoff their firm goal, started poorly, traded for Luol Deng, fired their general manager, re-affirmed their playoff priority and backed it up by trading for Spencer Hawes. By winning the first two games of their current road trip – at Phoenix, at Golden State – the Cavaliers finally looked like…

  11. Report: Cavaliers ‘would have been interested’ in hiring Phil Jackson

    Mar 16, 2014, 10:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson answers questions at a post-game news conference following Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    A report says the Cavaliers would have been interested in hiring Phil Jackson, which is interesting because it’s likely a position he never would have even considered.

  12. Cavaliers Anthony Bennett out three weeks with knee injury

    Mar 10, 2014, 4:05 PM EDT

    Mike Brown, Anthony Bennett

    As if his season hasn’t been a big enough disappointment, Cleveland’s No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett will miss at least 10 games with a knee strain.

  14. Joakim Noah has sprained thumb, will play through it for Bulls.

    Mar 7, 2014, 11:08 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Detroit Pistons

    Joakim Noah is playing the best basketball of his career the past few weeks and the Bulls are the third best team in the Eastern Conference. With Derrick Rose down and Luol Deng traded Noah has become the fulcrum of the Bulls offense, and it’s working as Noah has had a triple double in two…

  15. Report: Derrick Rose wants Bulls to sign Carmelo Anthony

    Mar 7, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s connect the dots. Joakim Noah is reportedly recruiting Carmelo Anthony to the Bulls. Melo has a son named Kiyan, who turns 7 years old today. Happy Birthday, Kiyan! Kyian’s favorite player is reportedly Derrick Rose. The missing dot: Derrick Rose. What does he think about all this? Chris Broussard of ESPN: One source also…

  16. Report: Joakim Noah recruiting Carmelo Anthony to Chicago Bulls

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:36 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Joakim Noah, Carmelo Anthony

    Reports Carmelo Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls this offseason are nothing new. Even Melo has stoked the flames of the rumors. But most published work on the subject has focused on where Melo desires to play. Sure, by trading Luol Deng for Andrew Bynum and draft picks, the Bulls signaled a greater interest…

  17. Kobe Bryant says Lakers’ revenge will be “sweet” and “quick”

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Press Conferences-Media Availabilty 2014

    This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…

  18. Report: Bulls and Cavaliers interested in Jimmer Fredette

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Sacramento Kings

    Jimmer Fredette, who will soon be bought out by the Sacramento Kings, doesn’t run an offense well, and he’s too small to play shooting guard regularly – though he defends both backcourt positions poorly, anyway. There’s a reason the Kings didn’t pick up the fourth-year option on his rookie contract and are buying him out…

  19. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

  20. Tom Thibodeau refuses to play your speculation game

    Feb 24, 2014, 3:19 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Tom Thibodeau is a very good basketball coach. Tom Thibodeau has had his run-ins and disagreements with Chicago Bulls management over the years, including concerns recently about the Luol Deng trade. Other teams are known to covet Thibodeau as a coach. The New York Knicks are said to be one of those teams. What the…

  21. Achilles injury may have influenced teams against trading for Luol Deng

    Feb 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    It became clear shortly after Luol Deng arrived in Cleveland that his stay with the team wouldn’t extend beyond this season. Deng was reportedly shocked by the internal chaos going on with the Cavaliers, so much so that any chance of him re-signing there as an unrestricted free agent this summer completely disappeared once he…

  22. Sixers waive Earl Clark, he’ll become a free agent

    Feb 21, 2014, 2:46 PM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    This was expected and it didn’t take long. The Philadelphia 76ers picked up Earl Clark from Cleveland as part of the Spencer Hawes trade. With all the players Philly picked up in a flurry of moves at the deadline they had 16 players on the roster, one more than the league maximum. Someone had to…

  23. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  24. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…
