After a 33-49 season where he did not connect with Kyrie Irving, you had to know this was coming.

This isn’t a surprise, Griffin was considered a front runner. Once this is decided the Cavs need to decide about coach Mike Brown.

Phil Jackson plans to reshape the Knicks front office, and without a big coaching/GM tree he’s going to lean on just a few people to help him.

Special film study, top-to-bottom roster changes and old players who aren’t really old define Philadelphia’s season.

Spencer Hawes tried to tell David West not to pick on his smaller teammate. West, as you might imagine, had no interest in hearing it.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

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…

You know the game is a blowout when one of the league’s worst free throw shooters gets to take a technical foul shot.
Mar 17, 2014, 3:00 AM EST
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…

Evan Turner wasn’t initially that fond of the Sixers new GM, but he may have changed his mind on his way out of town.
Mar 10, 2014, 4:05 PM EST
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.

The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a game it was Jan. 29 in Boston. Since then the Sixers have lost 15 in a row, by an average of 19.8 points a game (a couple 40+ point losses skew that number). Coach Brett Brown is not sure his team will win another game this season…

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…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

With the Miami Heat next up on the schedule, the New York Knicks are looking to bring in some guys who can defend on the perimeter. As opposed to what they have now which is essentially orange traffic cones to dribble around on your way to the lane. Enter Earl Clark (who we told you…
Feb 25, 2014, 5:12 PM EST
The New York Knicks are looking for defensive help. As they should be if you’ve watched any of their games recently. Which is why they are close to bringing in free agent Earl Clark. A deal is near, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The New York Knicks are finalizing an agreement with free-agent forward…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while mourning the loss of Harold Ramis (RIP)….. Philadelphia 76ers on the court. My. Lord. They. Are. Terrible. The Sixers have lost 11 in a row after getting just routed by the Milwaukee Bucks 130-110. That would be the 11-win Milwaukee Bucks, which shot 57.1…
Feb 22, 2014, 7:30 PM EST
Since the beginning of the season, it’s been widely known around the league that the Sixers’ veteran trio of Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, and Thaddeus Young were all available in trade as the team began its rebuilding process. Turner was involved in the biggest deal of the day, getting sent to a Pacers team with…
Feb 21, 2014, 2:46 PM EST
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…

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…
Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EST
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…
Feb 20, 2014, 4:12 PM EST
It was a lackluster NBA trade deadline by any reasonable standard, and once 3 p.m. Eastern had come and gone, there was nothing of note that went down that would improve any of the contending teams significantly. It wasn’t until more than 30 minutes after the deadline had passed that we found out about the…
Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EST
It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…
