Ricky Rubio May Try to Convince K-Love to Stay In Minny

Ricky Rubio May Try to Convince K-Love to Stay In Minny

Ricky Rubio must consider himself an optimist. Few things call for more glass-half-empty takes than the relationship between Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s awful. If it wasn’t bad before this season, it’s in shambles now, with Love 13 months from free agency and the Timberwolves 10 years removed from their last playoff berth. [...]

Report: LeBron ‘Eventually’ Wants to Team Up With Melo

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are many things to one another. They are opponents. They are friends. They are members of the All-Star brat pack. Could they also be future teammates? LeBron apparently hopes so. Writing on the deliberateness behind the Los Angeles Lakers’ long, infecund coaching search, USA Today‘s Sam Amick, dropped this gem: [...]

Kevin Love’s Boston Visit Fuels Insane Celtics Speculation

Kevin Love’s Boston Visit Fuels Insane Celtics Speculation

June is here and you know what that means: unfounded NBA rumors are in the air. Disgruntled Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Kevin Love—who has basically requested a trade even though he really hasn’t—was in Boston recently, so naturally that means he’s poised to join the Boston Celtics by way of trade or 2015 free agency. Love [...]

Cavs Interested in Trading for Love and Noah, Among Others

Cavs Interested in Trading for Love and Noah, Among Others

Good to see that landing the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft hasn’t gone to the Cleveland Cavaliers’ heads. What’s that? It has, you say? According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford (subscription required)—with special thanks to the folks over at RealGM—the Cavs are looking to use their top selection as trade bait, and [...]

Add George Karl, Larry Brown to List of Lakers Coaching Candidates

Add George Karl, Larry Brown to List of Lakers Coaching Candidates

This Los Angeles Lakers coaching search hasn’t been much fun. All along, the assumption was that the Lakers would make a splash by inking a big, flashy, oh-my-god-did-they-really-sign-him? name. Instead of action and visions of grandeur, though, there have been the same old recurrent, drab rumors that have them interviewing prospective candidates like Mike Dunleavy, [...]

LeBron James Says Spurs ‘Don’t Like’ Heat

LeBron James Says Spurs ‘Don’t Like’ Heat

Hate is a strong word, so let’s just say the San Antonio Spurs really, really, really don’t like the Miami Heat. Or that LeBron James is really, really, really delusional. Talking with reporters ahead of Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals, which will take place Thursday night, LeBron concluded that the Spurs have no [...]

Stephen Curry Says Warriors Hiring Steve Kerr Was a ‘Shock’

Stephen Curry Says Warriors Hiring Steve Kerr Was a ‘Shock’

Mark Jackson and Stephen Curry definitely still text each other. The Golden State Warriors point guard was always Jackson’s biggest, most outspoken supporter. That hasn’t changed in the wake of M-Jax’s firing. Speaking with reporters on Jackson’s dismissal, Curry, according to the Associated Press (via ESPN) said that the “semi-quick hire” of Steve Kerr was [...]

Cavs Apparently Don’t Want to Re-Sign Luol Deng

Cavs Apparently Don’t Want to Re-Sign Luol Deng

Luol Deng, Cleveland barely knew ya. The Cleveland Cavaliers traded for the two-time All-Star midway through the regular season. No one was quite sure if he would want to stay in Cleveland, playing for a Cavs team that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2010. It was supposed to come down to money. Deng rejected a [...]

Wade on LeBron’s Free Agency: Just Don’t Solely Put It on Me

Wade on LeBron’s Free Agency: Just Don’t Solely Put It on Me

Dwyane Wade won’t let you put the blame for LeBron James’ free-agency decision on him. Maybe Akron will. But Wade won’t. People haven’t stopped talking bout LeBron’s free agency this year. It’s most definitely not as bad as the 2009-10 campaign, when he was trapped in the utter, star sidekick-less hell known as Cleveland, but [...]

Donald Sterling Loops Kobe Into his Reign of Ignorance, Stupidity

Dear Donald Sterling, Please just go away. Signed, A lot of people The Los Angeles Clippers owner is making headlines again—which isn’t to say he ever stopped making headlines. He hasn’t. Not since he was recorded making racially charged comments and banned from the NBA for life. This time, though, he’s looped Kobe Bryant into [...]
