    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    This video was recently released by the folks that run the website for LeBron James, and it gives us a glimpse into the types of motivational words and teachings that young NBA prospects received from James and Chris Paul five years ago. The highlights come from a 2008 summer camp that took place before the…

  2. Harrison Barnes’ playoff scoring surge merely step one of two

    May 17, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes, Cory Joseph

    Harrison Barnes had a solid regular season, making the All-Rookie first team as a debatable choice for that honor. He started 81 games for the playoff-bound Warriors, but Barnes took a back seat to Stephen Curry, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Jarrett Jack, Carl Landry and, when healthy, Andrew  Bogut. Again being the seventh banana on…

  3. Warriors come back on court, Curry thanks fans after loss (VIDEO)

    May 17, 2013, 8:12 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    There was a great moment in Golden State after the Spurs had eliminated the Golden State Warriors from the playoffs. As the game was winding down the fans had stayed and chanted — this is a passionate fan base long starved for much to cheer about. So the players came back out of the tunnel…

  4. Spurs ramp up defense to beat Warriors, advance to Western Conference Finals

    May 17, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    The Warriors had a great run, but their magic ran out. In a hard fought, defense driven effort the Spurs defeated the Warriors 94-82 to advance to their 2nd consecutive Western Conference Finals. Golden State battled all night, trying to stave off elimination but simply didn’t have enough. Stephen Curry scored 22 points, but never found…

  5. Preview: Warriors need better performances from Curry and Thompson to hold off elimination against Spurs

    May 16, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    A closeout game is always the hardest win to get in a series. This is especially true when battling on the road and even more so when that road environment is one of the most raucous in the league. The Spurs, then, have their hands full when they visit Oracle Arena in Oakland and try to…

  6. Why do the Knicks keep playing Jason Kidd?

    May 15, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd has scored exceptionally during the playoffs. There are many ways to evaluate scoring, but here’s how five players rank by one measure: Jason Kidd: 73 Carmelo Anthony: 24 Stephen Curry: 23 Kevin Durant: 21 LeBron James: 17 That’s how many points each player has scored during the 2013 playoffs, as a percentage of…

  7. Tony Parker’s big game leads Spurs to game 5 victory over Warriors

    May 15, 2013, 1:03 AM EDT

    Spurs guard Parker drives on Warriors forward Barnes and guard Curry during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    One thing this series hasn’t had is a blowout. Game 5 changed that as the Spurs turned up their defensive pressure and got some key performances from some role players to rout the Warriors 109-91 and get within a game of advancing to the conference finals for the 2nd straight season. The star of the…

  8. Stephen Curry suffered no setbacks with injured ankle, says he’s ‘ready to go’ for Game 5

    May 14, 2013, 2:24 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The left ankle injury that Stephen Curry suffered late in Game 3 was a legitimate cause for concern for the Warriors. Despite Curry’s cold shooting in the last game and a half before it occurred, few believed that Golden State would be able to beat the Spurs without him. Curry played in the Warriors’ overtime…

  9. Preview: Spurs look to put Warriors on the edge of elimination in crucial Game 5

    May 14, 2013, 2:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Four

    How important is this game 5 to both teams? Historically, in the NBA, the team that goes up 3-2 wins the series 85.7% of the time. And while that’s not necessarily a doom’s day scenario for the loser, it’s pretty close. For the Warriors, it may be even more important as it’s hard to see…

  10. Kevin Durant: ‘I can do a lot more’

    May 13, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant falls to the floor against Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen in the final moments in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Anyway you slice it, Kevin Durant is doing a lot for the Thunder. Traditional stats say Durant is averaging 34.0 points, 10.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals in 44.3 minutes per game since Russell Westbrook’s injury. Advanced stats say Durant has 2.2 win shares for a team that has won five playoff games, which means…

  11. Tony Parker, dealing with bruised calf injury, says he’ll ‘definitely’ play in Game 4

    May 12, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry wasn’t the only one who suffered an injury late in the Spurs’ Game 3 win over the Warriors. Tony Parker, who was spectacular for San Antonio on Friday with 25 first half points on the way to a game high 32, suffered a bruised calf at some point during the fourth quarter. He…

  12. Stephen Curry ‘optimistic’ he’ll be ready to play in Game 4 despite ankle injury

    May 11, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Warriors' Curry regains control of the ball in front of Spurs' Green during Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    Stephen Curry suffered a sprained left ankle late in the fourth quarter of his team’s Game 3 loss to the Spurs. It wasn’t severe enough to immediately force him out of the game, but he was noticeably limping, both on the court and in the tunnels of the arena afterward. Curry didn’t speak to reporters…

  13. Stephen Curry sprains ankle in Game 3 loss to Spurs (VIDEO)

    May 11, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    Late in the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ Game 3 loss to the Spurs, Stephen Curry came down awkwardly as he came around a screen, tweaking his left ankle in the process. Curry was noticeably limping, but waved off his coach Mark Jackson in order to stay in for the remainder of the game. He…

  14. Spurs ride strong nights from Tony Parker and Tim Duncan to take down Warriors

    May 11, 2013, 2:24 AM EDT

    Spurs' Duncan pats team mate Parker on the head during their Game 3 win over the Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    It took 3 games, but the Spurs finally started to look like themselves against the Warriors. The ball movement was back, the defensive discipline was there and with those two things in place the Spurs took control back in the series with a 102-92 win in game 3. After the game Gregg Popovich said that…

  15. Lionel Hollins expects he will be back as Grizzlies coach

    May 10, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins

    Watching the way the Memphis Grizzlies are playing these playoffs, it’s hard to imagine anyone but Lionel Hollins on the bench with them. But his contract is up this year. And the team’s new owner has put in a young, numbers-friendly group in the front office (remember, they hired John Hollinger from ESPN), while Hollins…

  16. Bogut says his ankles got so bad he considered retiring

    May 10, 2013, 2:26 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Andrew Bogut has been what Golden State needed him to be these playoffs. After David Lee went down Bogut stepped up and has played well inside, being physical and protecting the rim, setting solid screens, providing some inside to balance out the crazy outside from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He’s averaged 29 minutes a…

  17. NBA’s newest playoff ad features Nate Robinson (VIDEO)

    May 9, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets

    If you are going to promote the NBA playoffs and the drama, is there a better option than Nate Robinson? (Sure, if you want to argue Stephen Curry, it’s a good option, but play along with me here. This is a good ad.)

  18. Watch Klay Thompson’s 29 first-half points against Spurs (VIDEO)

    May 9, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Mark Jackson sounds like his old announcer self — you remember, over the top and annoying — when he says that his combination of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson is the greatest shooting backcourt of all time. Let’s give it a little time here, partner. But that backcourt is really good — the Spurs have…

  19. Klay Thompson shoots the Warriors past the Spurs to win Game 2, even the series

    May 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    In many ways, Game 2 between the Warriors and the Spurs was similar to Game 1. Golden State got out to a large lead behind one of its guards shooting the lights out, and San Antonio was stuck playing from behind the rest of the way. The first game of the series saw the Spurs…

  20. Stephen Curry hitting one-legged three pointer. Because he can. (VIDEO)

    May 9, 2013, 12:12 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    Is there any shot Stephen Curry can’t hit? In some kind of ode to Dirk, Curry came off the pick just a couple of minutes into the game and knocked down the one-legged three-point shot. He is in such a groove that the Spurs pretty much have to pick him up at the half-court line…

  21. Preview: Warriors need to call on their round 1 experience to beat the Spurs

    May 8, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Cory Joseph, Stephen Curry

    We always think of the Spurs as the team with experience. They have championship core and all those playoff wins, after all. But the Warriors have some experience too, especially when it comes to the situation they’re facing heading into game 2 in San Antonio Wednesday night. In their 1st round upset of the Nuggets, the…

  22. Stephen Curry went off in third quarter for 22 (VIDEO)

    May 7, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Curry catches a break against the San Antonio Spurs in the second overtime period during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference Semifinals basketball playoff series in San Antonio

    You know as you read this Gregg Popovich is scheming up a way to slow down Stephen Curry. George Karl tried last round with limited success — Curry is the best shooter in the game and as defenses are tightening on the Warriors he is taking on a larger role . He is tearing apart…

  23. Bulls win? Warriors in second round? Unpredictability has been hallmark of these playoffs

    May 7, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Nate Robinson

    Legendary baseball statistician Bill James once said the big problem with the NBA is that the best team usually wins in the playoffs. He’s right, the NBA playoffs tend to follow form. And he’s right that we like unpredictability in the playoffs. Baseball has a long grind of a season, but in a seven game…

  24. Spurs complete amazing comeback to steal game 1 against Warriors

    May 7, 2013, 2:33 AM EDT

    Warriors Spurs basketball

    What. A. Game. After the contest Manu Ginobili said he had no idea how his Spurs won this game 129 to 126 to take a 1-0 in the Western Conference semi-finals. He’s not alone as I’m sure the Warriors will be tormenting themselves wondering the same thing. The Spurs looked dead in the water against…

    May 5, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James reads the label on his Most Valuable Player trophy during a news conference held by the NBA and Miami Heat in Miami

    The news we’ve known about for a few days now became official on Sunday, as LeBron James was named the league’s Most Valuable Player for the fourth time in his career. There was no suspense surrounding the crowning of James, but there was some curiosity to see whether or not he might be a unanimous…
