GAME BACK ON
After talks fell apart on a deal that would have brought Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to the Clips, discussion has reportedly reopened with a nudge from Chris Paul.
We know Dwight Howard is a dad. The exact number of children is up in the air and up for speculation depending on who you ask. What I can tell you is that he has at least 4 children. His oldest son Braylon with ex-Basketball Wives cast member Royce Reed plus, two daughters by two different women. And as of today, you can add a baby brother to the fold. Royce congratulated Dwight...

A fan was wondering whether the Spurs had signed Tracy McGrady on from an Arby's, but the restaurant actually had to cut the former All-Star. Why?
TOUGH ONE TO SWALLOW
After blowing a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter and losing in overtime, Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili didn't mince words when explaining how it felt, saying, "I'm devastated."
(Note: This was written on Tuesday the 18th, by which time sources had reported the Clippers walking away from trade talks and Danny Ainge himself declared the trade “dead.” But as far as I know, an hour after publication the trade may end up happening, rendering this article useless.

I was unable to be near Twitter while watching Game 6 on Tuesday night, and when LeBron James ditched his headband I definitely was having withdrawals. LeBron got rid of his headband after it was knocked off during the 4th quarter and immediately took over the game.

Below is a video shot by Grantland’s Rembert Brown showing some Heat fans leaving in the final minute of...
Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat said he became upset when he saw the NBA and the security at American Airlines Arena preparing for the Larry O’Brien Trophy presentation when the Heat were down 5 with 22 seconds left.
