  1. What would it mean for teams to win NBA Draft Lottery

    May 29, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Fates will be decided by some bouncing balls and random numbers Wednesday. Not just the fate of lock No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis (and guys like Andre Drummond, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson and many more). It’s the fate of franchises (and general managers) that will be decided. What would it mean to the 14…

  2. Warriors working to leverage future assets to get back future asset they already leveraged

    May 26, 2012, 8:18 PM EDT

    Warriors logo

    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.…

  4. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  5. LeBron, Ibaka lead NBA All-Defensive team voting

    May 23, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    Few things can be counted on for a consistent laugh like the NBA All-Defensive team voting. It is always a laugh. This year it didn’t disappoint — somebody voted for Carlos Boozer. Yes, that Carlos Boozer. For his defense. But no complaint about the top vote getter, LeBron James. He was a defensive force this…

  6. Report: Scott Skiles has coaching job but still covets Orlando

    May 23, 2012, 12:27 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    Scott Skiles has an NBA coaching job. All he has to do is figure out how to make a Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis backcourt work. And figure out how that backcourt is not going to become a major defensive liability. All while everyone knows he is a lame duck in the last year of his deal.…

  7. Bucks’ Jon Brockman in a massive purple adult onesie

    Brockman Swagga Suit

    Remember when we were debating between Nick Young’s shirt and Rajon Rondo’s jacket? Jon Brockman wins. How to explain that photo to the right … let’s say you were sitting around your living room thinking, “How could I take the Snuggie and make it more into a jumpsuit? And maybe put my college colors and…

  10. Magic’s Ryan Anderson named NBA’s Most Improved Player

    May 4, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    UPDATE 1:40 pm: It’s official, Ryan Anderson is your NBA’s Most Improved Player. As I said below, Anderson deserves some kudos for continuing good production this season as his minutes jumped from bench guy to starter. Not everyone can do that. Whether or not you think that should make him MIP depends on how you…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    This summer, the United States will send it’s best 12 best basketball players to London to represent our nation in the Olympic Games. Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban hates the idea, and he’s not alone. This summer will be the 20th anniversary of the original Dream Team and for some the bloom is off the rose.…

  13. Scott Skiles to return as Milwaukee coach next season

    May 1, 2012, 6:47 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    Maybe you can’t picture Scott Skiles effectively coaching a backcourt of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, but Herb Kohl can. And he’s the owner. The guy writing the check. So they are going to do it. Skiles will be back for another season as the Bucks head man, reports the Journal-Sentinel. Scott Skiles confirmed in…

    Apr 24, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets Armon Johnson and Anthony Morrow leave court for final time after NBA basketball game loss to Philadelphia 76ers in Newark

    What you missed while watching a cat fight off a black bear…  Sixers 105, Nets 87: With this win Philadelphia both spoiled the Nets final home game in New Jersey after 35 years and clinched themselves a playoff spot (likely the eight seed) in the East. They controlled the game pretty much the whole way,…

  17. Report: The Nets plan to pursue Kevin Garnett in free agency

    Apr 21, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Kevin Garnett‘s going to be a free agent this summer. That sounds weird just saying it. But if he doesn’t return to Boston, he’s going to have options. And one option keeps him in the Northeast, as both the New York Post and New Jersey Star-Ledger report that the Nets have interest in bringing in Garnett. What…

  18. Bucks’ Sanders suspended; Pacers’ West, Granger fined for “fight”

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    David West, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

    It really wasn’t much of a fight. For a guy dancing around losing his cool it really ends up not taking much resistance to keep Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders away from Indiana’s David West. He doesn’t look like a guy who really wants a fight. But it was enough of one to earn some actions from…

    Larry Sanders

    With playoff berths and seedings on the line, you felt a real sense of desperation from teams the last few days. The Bucks were one of those teams Thursday night — lose and they were pretty much toast in the East. But Larry Sanders went well over the line, turning a little scuffle into his…

    Apr 20, 2012, 8:47 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns players rally around Frye and give him high fives after he put the Suns up over the Los Angeles Clippers late in the fourth quarter during their NBA basketball game in Phoenix

    What you missed while cracking up at the Californian’s skit from Saturday Night Live (seriously, we all talk about traffic like that)…. Heat 83, Bulls 72: It was a physical, low scoring playoff-style game — and the fact the Heat won should give them some confidence. Suns 93, Clippers 90: Phoenix played desperate at the…

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

    Apr 11, 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

    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…

  25. Who gets the most “hockey assists” in the NBA?

    Apr 11, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce

    In the NBA, the guy who makes the pass to set up a shooter gets an assist. But often you will see a point guard drive and draw the defense, kick out to a guy at the arc, who will then see the defense rotate and make a pass to a second open shooter who…
