After the Los Angeles Clippers‘ big men got mauled by the Grizzlies‘ duo of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, it became clear that they need to get bigger and tougher along their front line if they hope to compete in their conference (among other things).
The Clips are reportedly eyeing a certified front line warrior in the Pacers’ David West, a free agent once the season ends. Read More »
When we last saw Dwight Howard, he may or may not have been letting Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak have it after DH was booted from the Lakers final game of the season. (Followed by Magic Johnson going off on Dwight on Twitter)
Now we have some news/rumors/reports of what Dwight Howard may be thinking as he eyes free agency this summer, and it looks like the Houston Rockets are at the top of his list. Read More »
When the Boston Celtics were dispatched by the New York Knicks in the first round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, to many it seemed pretty clear that it officially signaled the end of Boston’s run with their core players. The Celtics looked old, slow and were generally outmatched against the Knicks – something clearly needs to be done to make them competitive in the near future and beyond.
That “something” starts with their two aging superstars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Right down to this season’s trade deadline Boston apparently considered trading Pierce and/or KG to various teams, so we know that the seeds of reality are there.
Now we get the rumor that Pierce himself doesn’t think he will be back in green and white next season, from a Celtics employee no less. Read More »
This is really getting closer happening isn’t it? Dummies who don’t understad anything about anything are going to bully Derrick Rose into returning to the court before he’s mentally ready to play, aren’t they? Against the Miami Heat, in a wildly intense playoff series after Derrick hasn’t played for more than a year, no less.
The other day, Rose spoke about his potential return before the Bulls kicked off their series with the Heat. Read More »

Despite leading the Brooklyn Nets to a 35-19 record and the fourth playoff seed in the East after taking over for Avery Johnson part way through the season, the Brooklyn Nets announced over the weekend that they were parting ways with interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.
With the search on for one of the most high-profile coaching gigs in professional sports, rumors of a leader for the job has already emerged. Read More »
I guess you can’t hurt the Brooklyn Nets for trying. Like pretty much every other team in the NBA, they believe that their standing would be enhanced significantly by the presence of Paul Pierce in their lineup. Add to that the fact that whether they are ready to officially admit it, the Celtics are about to be in real rebuilding mode. Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo – these guys can all be had for a price.
But not what the Brooklyn Nets allegedly offered Boston in exchange for The Truth. Read More »
According to NBA trade rumors, the Phoenix Suns have been one of the most active teams heading into tomorrow’s NBA trade deadline. There have been pieces floating around the internet that they’ve been discussing moving Jermaine O’Neal to the Knicks and Sebastian Telfair to the Raptors.
Today’s biggest rumor though has Phoenix making a push to acquire Kendrick Perkins from the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a multi-player deal. Read More »
It would appear that Dwight Howard‘s collective performance at NBA All-Star Weekend was one for the ages. Not only did he turn in a rather uninspired performance on the court (including a weirdly detached, sort of abrasive interview with Craig Sager from the bench during the game), but he also apparently went out of his way to publicly drive the rift between himself and Kobe Bryant deeper than it has ever been.
The New York Post published a report that Dwight mocked Kobe openly in the locker room in front of the rest of the players (Watch Dwight clown Kobe on the Lakers team plane earlier this season). From the report: Read More »
No Rajon Rondo. No Jared Sullinger. A rapidly-aging core and a “win now” window that is closing faster by the second. A looming trade deadline and the building notion that common sense says to blow up the roster and start fresh. There is blood in the water surrounding the Boston Celtics, and other NBA GMs are circling, doing their best to pry the Green’s most valuable trading piece to a playoff-bound team – Kevin Garnett.
Along with the maybe-yes, maybe-no pursuit by the Los Angeles Clippers, the next team to emerge in pursuit of KG is the Denver Nuggets. The problem, for Denver at least, is that KG wants no parts. Read More »
If you believe The Sporting News, the Los Angeles Clippers‘ recent struggles (losers of six out of their last eight games) have done nothing to dampen their belief that they can win an NBA championship this year.
The outlet reported last night that multiple sources confirmed that the Clips were trying to put together a deal to land Kevin Garnett. Read More »
