    May 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s right that it should go this way. These two never faced one another last year, and now that the Celtics are at full strength and the Cavaliers are ruling the roost, we need to settle this. The 2008 Champions, seeking to regain what they feel is their rightful title. And the Cavaliers, aiming to…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Bulls rode strong start and hung on for dear life to beat the Cavs in Game 3

    Apr 22, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Winning Game 3 wasn’t going to convince anyone that Chicago will win the series, but this game was huge. The Bulls sprinted out to an early double-digit lead behind a huge opening frame from Derrick Rose (15 in the first quarter alone on 6-of-8 shooting; he finished with 31 points on 26 shots, seven assists,…

  3. NBA Playoffs Matchup Mastery: Should the Bulls surrender to LeBron and go big?

    Apr 19, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT

    So, the Bulls got ramrodded in Game 1. It happens to 8th seeds. But they did make a furious comeback and weren’t completely outside the context of a comeback. So is there anything the Bulls can do to try and combat the numerous advantages the Cavs have tonight? The answer lies at the heart of…

  4. Joakim Noah: "Cleveland really sucks"

    Apr 19, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    Well, there goes any chance Joakim Noah had of being best buds with Drew Carry. The Bulls had a couple days in Cleveland between games. Aside figuring out ways not to get completely manhandled by Shaq, Noah told the Cleveland Plain Dealer he didn’t find a lot of other things to do during his stay.…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Zone defense ain't no thing, Cavs coast to a Game 1 win over Bulls

    Apr 17, 2010, 7:18 PM EDT

    Let’s not pretend that the Bulls’ performance in this game was somehow significant; after building an early double-digit lead, the Cavs worked, and held, and coasted, until a temporary hiccup against the Bulls’ zone defense made this game a bit closer than it should have been. Does that mean Chicago is somehow going to make…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Cavaliers set to dominate, so enjoy the Bulls while you can

    Apr 17, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    What do the Chicago Bulls need to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers? A miracle. Hijinx. Steroids. Food poisoning for LeBron. Flubber. Possession by a basketball-playing demon. Stink bombs in the Cavs’ locker room. A magic lamp. Oh, and on top of all that, they need to play nearly perfect basketball from top to bottom. Honestly, if…

  7. Shaq does not want his name used on "Basketball Wives"

    Apr 15, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    I’ll be honest: I didn’t watch the premiere of VH1’s “Basketball Wives” last weekend. I was going to, it was part of the job I told myself, but there was nothing about this that is remotely appealing. So when it came time, I thought a rerun of Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares on BBC America was…

  8. Shaq apparently taking his rehab seriously

    Mar 22, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    Signs that you know Shaquille O’Neal and his team are still in the honeymoon phase: He actually shows on screens when the coaching staff asks him to. (Well actually…) He hasn’t completely ripped the team’s star player. (If you think he won’t one day rip LeBron, you weren’t paying attention when he left Phoenix. If…

  11. Shaq's injury not so bad for the Cavs

    Feb 26, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    In rolling past the Celtics in the second half last night, the Cavs unveiled something that has become a favorite of many a hardcore basketball fan this season: the small-ball lineup. The fact that LeBron James defies the very concept of position gives Cleveland incredible flexibility in assembling their on-court rotations, and the added versatility…

    Feb 21, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    The Magic’s stretch four landed a huge shot after Cleveland’s stretch four fouled out, and that was pretty much the ballgame.

    According to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Shaquille O’Neal’s…shall we say, interesting reality show, Shaq Vs., will be returning for a second season on ABC. It’s the perfect show for that 7’2”, attention-crazed NBA star in your life, but for everyone else? Well, it’s a bit silly. I’m sure Shaq has a lot…
