    Jan 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    It can be a little difficult keeping track of the feuds among the members of the Boston Celtics’ last title team. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce don’t like Ray Allen. Doc Rivers reportedly tried to fight Rajon Rondo. Rondo said he “didn’t feel anything” when Garnett and Pierce were traded. It’s dizzying. But between Garnet…

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EST

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

    Jan 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    If you missed it last week, the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets played with nicknames on the back of their jerseys instead of their last names. Once I was able to shush the crotchety old man that sometimes takes over my brain, I really enjoyed it. Ray Allen‘s “J. Shuttlesworth” jersey, a nod to his…

  9. Are the Heat the NBA’s most book smart team? They think so.

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    An NBA locker room is not the most academic of settings. It’s not a book club sitting around discussing “The Luminaries” (even though with all the down time NBA players have they have the time to get through it). There are smart, well read guys in the NBA, however, and they tend to be veteran…

  10. Nets notch fifth straight win over frustrated LeBron, banged up Heat

    NEW YORK – LeBron James fouled out of a game for just the sixth time in his career on Friday, and with the Heat entering the game in Brooklyn already down three of their starters, losing him for the second overtime session proved to be too much. Behind big games from Joe Johnson and Shaun…

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    We like to bring you these (this is the 18th this season), even though we all now that these warnings from NBA will have about the same impact as your parents warning to stop drinking your dad’s beer when you were in high school. The Indiana Pacers’ Lance Stephenson has been warned for a flop…

  13. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

    Back in the 1970s the NBA used to allow nicknames on jerseys, and they have decided to again for one game — Jan. 10 between the Heat and Nets. SLAM got an advanced peak at the jerseys. To be clear, that is Ray Allen (34, from his character in the movie “He Got Game”), LeBron…

    Could it really be anything else? If we are talking about one play that we will be talking about a decade, two decades from now it will be Ray Allen‘s step back corner three that sent Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime. There was a lot that led up to it (including the…

    When Mario Chalmers wasn’t throwing passes behind his head to LeBron James for ridiculous dunks, he was throwing his weight into DeMarcus Cousins late in Miami’s loss to Sacramento on Friday.

  25. Lessons of Celtics 2007 draft taught Suns GM not to tank for picks

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:02 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    While from the outside it looked like the Suns were going bad to get good this season, they never saw it that way. Young new GM Ryan McDonough traded for Eric Bledsoe and believed in the Goran Dragic/Bledsoe backcourt when few did. He was right. More than that he stockpiled picks and also went and…
