In this business, it is best to have thick skin. The 6-foot-9 center out of Ohio State is probably the most scrutinized player entering this draft class. Scratch that.

Derek Fisher letting the young Thunder experience finals naturally

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be making their first NBA Finals appearance (as the Thunder) tomorrow versus the Miami Heat. But for veteran guard Derek Fisher, it won't be his first. Outside of Nazr Mohammed (won a title with the Spurs) and Kendrick Perkins (won a title with the Celtics), Fisher is a five-time NBA champion and it is safe to say he has been there and definitely...

Did Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen play their last games in Boston this weekend?

The Boston Celtics forced the Miami Heat to the brink of elimination. Kevin Garnett channelled his inner "Big Ticket" in the process. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce looked more their age. Through 20 postseason games, KG posted playoff averages of 19.2 points and 10.3 rebounds per night. Allen and Pierce did not help things as much as Celtics Nation hoped they would. Allen...

After getting owned in Lottery, Nets looking to add Draft pick

There was no bigger loser in the NBA Draft Lottery than the New Jersey Brooklyn Nets. After being Heisman'd by one free agent star after another over the last three years, a shot at Anthony Davis could've been that spark they so desperately needed to set Brooklyn ablaze upon arrival. That wasn't happening however, and things just got worse from there. As the ping pong...

Brandon Roy was in L.A....

Brandon Roy will always represent what could have been. Maybe he will become, as they said in Field of Dreams, what could be good again. Roy's career has been both amazing and tragic as constant knee injuries derailed this budding young star long before he could fully blossom. Much like Tracy McGrady, Grant Hill and Gilbert Arenas (among many many others), fans will never get...

Oklahoma City all grow'ed up

Oklahoma City trailed by 18 points... at home... in a closeout game... against a seasoned, veteran, championship team in San Antonio. It was both masterful and stunning. The Spurs looked invincible, playing free and loose for the first time since Game Two. The Thunder looked wide-eyed and overwhelmed by the moment and the pressure to finish with an amped up crowd at home. ...

Report: New Orleans Hornets interested in trading Draft pick

No not Anthony Davis with pick number one. They're good rebuilding from the rubble left behind by CP3 with the freakishly athletic big man out of Kentucky. That selection is already in the hands of David Stern while AD gets fitted for his new suit. When New Orleans comes back around to pick again at the 10th overall spot, however, they might rather make a trade instead. According...

Williams Keeping Free Agent Options Open

Deron Williams is the unquestioned prize of this year's free agent class and he knows it.  Dwight Howard, afraid of being the bad guy in leaving Orlando, opted in for another year, so did Chris Paul.  That leaves Williams as the number one guy available this season.  There's been return to Brooklyn rumors, there have been back home to Dallas rumors and because people think...

Blazers plan to re-tool, not rebuild, around Aldridge

The Portland Trailblazers are a team in transition.  A few years ago we all thought of them as the Oklahoma City Thunder before the Thunder were on the door step of an NBA title.  With Brandon Roy, Greg Oden and LaMarcus Aldridge all in the fold, the Blazers were looked at as the NBA's next up and coming franchise.  Then the wheels literally came off as various knee injuries...
