  1. Report: Mark Jackson’s job as Warriors coach is safe

    Apr 8, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Mark Jackson is finishing his first season as head coach of the Warriors, an inauspicious debut due largely to circumstances beyond his control. The Warriors decided to go into full tank rebuilding mode at the trade deadline by dealing Monta Ellis for an injured Andrew Bogut, and are playing it safe by shutting down Stephen…

  2. Video: Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, a ball and a marriage proposal

    Apr 6, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Scott Skiles, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

    If you’re going to ask for a young lady’s hand in marriage at a Bucks game, you go to the Cameroonian Prince. The Bucks defensive stopper Luc Richard Mbah a Moute helped a guy out with a marriage proposal before a recent Bucks game at the Bradley Center. It appears she said yes, and I’m sure…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Playoff impacts everywhere you look

    Apr 5, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett

    What you missed while getting drunk on peanut butter and jelly flavored vodka…. Heat 98, Thunder 93: Don’t read too much into “statements” before the playoffs start, but the Heat made one in one of our games of the night. Lakers 113, Clippers 108: The Clippers had the big highlights, but the Lakers will take…

  4. David Stern says he expects deal to sell Hornets “soon”

    Apr 4, 2012, 9:58 PM EDT

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    A whole lot of deals fall apart when they get close to people signing papers — and writing checks — but this one appears to have some legs. NBA Commissioner David Stern said a deal was “close” to sell the New Orleans Hornets and that he hoped to have good news for the NBA owners…

  5. David Stern still wants to add a year to the age limit

    Apr 3, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    From the AP: The league wasn’t able to change its draft eligibility rules during collective bargaining last year. The rules require an American player to be 19 years old and a year out of high school. The players’ association would only agree to form a committee to discuss changes, and it is unlikely to consent…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Mayo sticks dagger in Thunder

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:58 AM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    What you missed while watching Kentucky win the national title they seemed destined to win…. Memphis 94, Oklahoma City 88: Apparently the Thunder are not comfortable on top of my (and everybody’s) power rankings. This was always a dangerous letdown game for the Thunder — they beat the Heat, Lakers and Bulls in the eight…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Apr 2, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    There can’t be any question about the Thunder in the top spot after the last 8 days, but there are questions about the Heat and the Bulls in the East. And the Celtics and Spurs as spoilers. 1. Thunder (40-12, last week ranked number 2). They beat the Heat, Bulls and Lakers in the last…

  8. Video: Brandon Jennings’ behind-the-back, twisting layup

    Apr 1, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Bucks' Jennings goes to the basket against Bulls' Brewer during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    This was the best shot of the night…. well, second best. Anthony Davis of Kentucky had the best. But Brandon Jennings was impressive on this break against the Grizzlies. Unfortunately there was not enough of this for the Bucks, who need to start racking up a lot of wins if they plan to catch the…

  9. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    Mar 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    hellrufus

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Drama with the Lakers? Shocking.

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while thinking you don’t hate your job as much as this guy… Lakers 104, Warriors 101: What’s a Laker win without more drama? During the game the drama was the Lakers not pulling away against an undersized Golden State side, then the Warriors fighting back from a double digits deficit in the…

  12. Report: Nets to target free agents Kevin Garnett, Ersan Ilyasova

    Mar 27, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett reacts during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers as the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan looks on in Los Angeles

    Dwight Howard is still the guy at the top of the Nets most wanted list. But he is not going to be there when the Nets start playing in Brooklyn next season, so the Nets are looking at some other potential free agents who could pair well with Deron Williams — who they are desperately…

  13. Pacers’ Tyler Hansbrough playing through broken nose

    Mar 27, 2012, 10:51 AM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Udonis Haslem

    Tyler Hansbrough is not wearing a mask because he wants to be like Kobe Bryant. Well, he probably wouldn’t mind driving Kobe’s new car, but that’s not why he’s wearing the mask. Hansbrough suffered a broken nose when Mike Dunleavy elbowed him in the face during a game Saturday, according to the Indy Star. Hansbrough…

  14. It’s not pretty, but Knicks solidify playoff standing with win

    Mar 26, 2012, 11:11 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It looked like a game where both teams were battling for the right to be the eight seed — the winning team shot 35.1 percent and had 23 turnovers. Tom Thibodeau is not reviewing this tape and getting nervous. But a gritty win counts the same as any other kind and the Knicks outhustled the…

  15. Bogut says you’re “uneducated” if you think he’s injury prone

    Mar 26, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut is right. He’s also not answering the question I and others are asking about the trade that sent him from Milwaukee to the Bay Area essentially for Monta Ellis. In a radio interview with 95.7 The Game in San Francisco, Bogut was asked about his injury history — he is currently out with…

  16. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  18. The “Violence Against Blake Griffin” situation

    Mar 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    He’s asking for it. OK, stop, that right there. That’s me trying to snag your attention with some sort of bombastic statement. I can assure you my position is more nuanced than this phrase, which by the way, in the context of violence of any sort — on-court, off-court, sexual, non-sexual — should never, ever…

  19. Celtics look like road warriors, maybe division champs after beating Bucks

    Mar 23, 2012, 2:07 AM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett grins after a jump shot in the closing minutes in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    Eight games in a row on the road — it was supposed to do Boston in, knock them out of the playoffs. It was the biggest test of the season and the Celtics old legs were not going to be able to live up to it. Friday night the road trip ends in Philadelphia and…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Five in a row for the Knicks

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  21. Warriors owner Joe Lacob talks about getting booed

    Mar 21, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Lacob Chris Mullin AP

    I’ve been hard on Joe Lacob the last 24 hours saying that he brought the boos on himself. First, never take the microphone after the guest of honor (he spoke after Chris Mullin at Mullin’s jersey retirement). Second, he has broken the classic marketing rule — he’s over-promised and under-delivered as Warriors owner so far.…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Heat hotter than the Suns

    Mar 21, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem drives to the basket against the Phoenix Suns in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while wondering why someone whose job it was to smuggle cocaine into the United States would get the personalized license plate “SMUGLER”… Heat 99, Suns 95: It looked like the Suns had a road upset in their pocket — they led most of the fourth quarter and were up 10 with just…

  23. Sale of Hornets could be completed by middle of April

    Mar 20, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    With a new lease deal in place to keep the team in the New Orleans Arena, the sale of the Hornets appears closer than ever. While we keep hearing potential dates, there is a very good one coming up next month, notes the Times-Picayune (via Sports Business Daily). The NBA Board of Governors has a…

  24. Why did Warrior fans boo?

    Mar 20, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    Joe Lacob

    The timing was uncomfortable for everyone — it was supposed to be a night about Chris Mullin. One of the legends of the Golden State Warriors, the Hall of Fame player and former team GM, getting his number retired. But instead, it will be known as the night Warriors fans unloaded on team co-owner Joe…

  25. Warriors fans hijack Mullin number retirement to boo owner

    Mar 20, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    Lacob Chris Mullin AP

    I’ve never seen a number retirement ceremony go badly before. I have now. Chris Mullin was having his number retired by the Golden State Warriors Monday night, but when owner Joe Lacob took the microphone — right after Mullin — fans unleashed a torrent of boos. You can see it in the video above. Why?…
