    In a year that saw their franchise player fall to yet another season-ending knee injury, the Chicago Bulls have impressed the entire League with their gritty style of play, earning their spot in this year’s postseason. Joakim Noah, their fearless and often outspoken center, has become a leader on a team that was quick to be ruled out of contention when Derrick Rose went down with a torn meniscus in late November. Chicago fans understand just how hard their team fights night in and night out and while the absence of Derrick Rose has caused variability on the secondary market, prices for…

    Originally published in SLAM 165 Since his halcyon HS days, BJ Mullens wanted to be a superstar, a household name. He went to Ohio State for a year, got drafted by the Mavs, then shipped to the Thunder. Mullens, KD, Westbrook and Harden! He was on his way! Well, something like that. It was a nice thought while it lasted. Mullens played in 26 games during his two seasons in OKC and his biggest move was declaring that he would now go by “Byron” instead of “BJ.” The closest he got to the Westbrook, Durant, Harden trio was allowing them to use his name at hotels when they didn’t want to…

Per the NY Post: Chandler has one year left on his pact at $14 million and becomes a free agent in 2015, when (Phil) Jackson is looking to pounce on a free-agent class that could include LeBron James and will feature Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Rajon Rondo and Goran Dragic, among others. “I definitely don’t want to waste another season,” Chandler said before the Knicks faced the Nets Tuesday at…

    16 Apr 2014 | 10:49 pm
    Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant is the NBA's likely MVP for the 2013-14 season. While LeBron James might still be the league's best player, depending on how you rate such things, there's little question that Durant has put forth the best campaign of any player. Apart from winning his fourth scoring title in five years, Durant has improved in virtually every aspect of the sport and carried OKC through several lengthy periods of absence for co-star Russell Westbrook. It's hard to imagine him having done more to help his team. In Wednesday night's regular season finale against the…

    Heading into the 2013-14 NBA season, many observers and prognosticators expected the New York Knicks to take a step back from the 54-28 record they put up en route to winning the Atlantic Division and making it to the Eastern Conference semifinals last year. (I mean, when you add Andrea Bargnani in the offseason, you've got to take some type of hit.) Here at BDL, we pegged the Knicks at 49-33 — a five-game drop-off that would make it tough to maintain their spot atop the Atlantic, but still figured to keep them comfortably in the top eight of the Eastern Conference. Others were a bit less…

But the city's response to in the aftermath of the attack — the tireless work of Boston police officers, firefighters and emergency personnel, the selfless heroism of civilians like Carlos Arredondo, etc. — also showcased the very best of the character and fortitude that Boston could offer.

L.A.'s most popular squad enters Wednesday night's season finale at the San Antonio Spurs with a 26-55 record, second-worst in the Western Conference and sixth-worst in the entire NBA. The franchise will have to consider many options this summer as they attempt to reload and return to relevance. The most bizarre aspect of this terrible season, though, has been the relative absence of Lakers icon Kobe Bryant. In his 18th season, Kobe managed…

A truly fitting finish. The Pistons led by 10 with 10 minutes to play, and by all accounts played a great overall game, but they were outscored 28-17 the rest of the final quarter of the season.

    It was a fun game for a season wrap.  While the Rockets organization weren’t taking the game that serious (Dwight Howard chucked a three?) their scrubs were taking it as seriously as the Pelicans scrubs were taking it.  Most of those guys were playing to try to leave some sort of impression out there. In the end, it was a game of contrasting styles – which I found entertaining.  The Rockets were jacking up every long range bomb they could.  The Pelicans were driving relentlessly to the basket – usually after faking a three.  The result were a lot of made threes for the…

Evans dropped a career high 41 points and got just enough help from his friends for the Pelicans to pull off a 101-89 upset. New Orleans came out with some fire in the first quarter, avoiding mistakes and playing fine enough offense that they were able to hang with a Thunder team that on paper they had very little business competing with. Tyreke was driving and kicking all over the place and the Pelicans were content to let it fly from downtown. They attempted 9 bombs in the first…

But perspective people, it's just a seeding . . . all is not lost yet (so we hope). The real season starts this weekend. Also, is it really on Spo that Norris Cole regressed this season?

But that had nothing to do with Indiana winning on Sunday. That had to do with the Heat letting it get out of control. Why didn't anyone call him on that? -- Steven.

    Like so many times this season, the Kings managed to fall just short. Nonetheless, it was a fun game to cap off a fun season. The theme of the evening may have been Fan Appreciation, but the underlying theme was progress.  The Sacramento Kings lost to the Phoenix Suns 104-99, but like so many games this season, it was a loss full of promise.  Throughout the night we were reminded of how far we've come in the past year.  How far we've come as fans, how far the Kings have come as a team, and how far Sacramento has come a city.  The loss is a number in the record books, but…

With ownership of the Milwaukee Bucks franchise set to pass from Herb Kohl to Marc Lasry and Wes Edens — pending rubber stamp approval of the $550 million purchase agreement by the NBA Board of Governors — the focus is already shifting from the vague concern about whether the Bucks will stay in Milwaukee to more specific questions how (and when) a viable arena plan will emerge within the community.

The Bulls get the Wizards in the first round instead of the Nets, with a possible date against the vulnerable Pacers in the second round. I like. yfBB already gave a brief intro to the series, and I agree that John Wall has the potential to give the Bulls some real problems. Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster are very capable shooters that can make it rain from outside, and the Wizards have a solid frontcourt with a healthy Nene to go along with Marcin Gortat. Oh, and old friend Drew Gooden has also…

And worse yet, a loss for all their troubles, locking them into a 4th seed in the Eastern Conference. It looked like it'd be easier early, as the Bulls started out very well defensively in this game and held the Bobcats to a 3/16 stretch to start the game and an early 10-point lead. But the Bobcats are kind of a tough team, with a facsimile of the Thibs defensive system that forced the Bulls then go on one a couple of scoring droughts they'd have on the night. A 20-6 run by…

  • Final Score: Phoenix Suns and Archie Goodwin Beat Sacramento Kings 104-99

    Sean Sullivan
    16 Apr 2014 | 10:00 pm
    The suns won their 48th and final game of the season thanks to their smoking hot rookie, Archie Goodwin, who scored 29 points off the bench in his first major NBA minutes of the season. The Suns started out with their normal starting unit, save for Gerald Green replacing Goran Dragic, as expected.  The first quarter began with both teams playing noticeably loose, almost in full exhibition mode.  Miles Plumlee attempted a step-back fade-away jumper as the first shot of the game for the Suns...if that's any indication. Gerald Green was the main scorer for the Suns through most of the…

  • One. Game. Out. The story of Phoenix sports franchises in 2014.

    16 Apr 2014 | 6:54 am
    Over the past four months, all three major sports franchises in the Phoenix metro area have come up just one game short of the playoffs, an ignominious feat that no one wants to repeat. It's been a frustrating four months in the Valley of the Sun for sports fans. In late December, the NFL's Arizona Cardinals capped off a successful, nationally-praised 10-6 season with... an early vacation. The 10-win Cardinals set a standard for the most regular season wins without a playoff berth, missing the dance by one game. Earlier this week, the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes capped off a successful season with…

    All good things must come to an end. I love the Phoenix Suns and I've loved the Phoenix Suns for the last 25 years of my life. Some of my happiest moments have involved watching Suns teams win 50+ games and compete for championships, so for me the 2012-13 edition of the Phoenix Suns was basically the beginning of a dark ages for my basketball fandom. Last night as I watched the final seconds of the competitive portion of the Suns season tick away my wife asked me how I was doing.  Without as much as flinching a smile came over my face and my response was direct and to the point - I feel…

    15 Apr 2014 | 1:15 pm
    I admit the second half of this Wolves season has been a major disappointment. The team didn’t come together. Ronnie and Chase came back but they didn’t have the impact I imagined. Ronnie has played great when he is healthy and Chase even showed promise before his latest injury. Injuries to Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin played a big role in the teams in ability to mount a comeback. But for the most part, the team just wasn’t good enough, consistently enough, to make it happen in the uber competitive Western Conference. It’s too bad really that this couldn’t…

With Pekovic out tonight, will Minnesota keep San Antonio off the boards and control the glass. The Wolves can almost always count on 12-14 boards from Kevin Love.

    Wizards managed to weather an early second half storm by the Celtics, defeating them handily, 118-102. And with Brooklyn's loss, Washington leaped to the fifth seed and will face the Chicago Bulls in round 1. That was easy, right? After a brief scare from Boston early in the second half, Washington retook control of the game and handled their business. This was a Boston team without Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger, playing Joel Anthony extended minutes with Kelly Olynyk in foul trouble, and it showed. The Wizards' frontline of Trevor Booker, Nene, and Marcin Gortat threw their weight…

If Odyssey Sims had not played one minute this season, there still would be no denying that she had one of the greatest careers for a guard in NCAA women’s basketball history. She earned national championship honors, All-American selections and was a finalist for Wade, Naismith and Wooden awards as both a sophomore and a junior. However, this season, Sims faced an unfamiliar situation. Not only did two-time Player of the Year Brittney Griner graduate, but also four other seniors. Combined, they accounted for 68 percent of the team’s offense.

I have been an official NBA postseason awards voter for nearly a decade, and it would have been longer if not for a rule at the Associated Press, where I worked from 1987-2005, forbidding beat from voting for postseason awards (It is OK for them to declare the national champion in college football, but it is not OK for them to vote in other sports.

    Mike Scott led six different players in double figures with 17 points as the Atlanta Hawks finish the regular season with a 111-103 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Atlanta Hawks wrapped up the 2014 regular season Wednesday night with a 111-103 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Atlanta will open their first-round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. Getting a win is nice but the goal coming into Wednesday's game was to get most of the regulars a few minutes and then get them out of the game injury free. Mike Budenholzer accomplished that goal as Mike Scott was the only starter…

    The Atlanta Hawks are set to wrap up the regular season against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, but it won't be a typical roster for Atlanta, as they will reportedly rest All-Star power forward Paul Millsap for the second straight game. After resting three starters for the full game (and the other two for the 4th quarter) during Monday's close-fought loss to the Charlotte Bobcats, the Atlanta Hawks are once again poised to give the team's best player a break as they square off with the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. Current plans is for Paul Millsap to rest and all other Hawks to be…

The Atlanta Hawks close out the 2014 regular season with a matchup in Milwaukee against the Bucks and old coach Larry Drew. Atlanta has wrapped up their seventh consecutive trip to the playoffs and will be matched up against top seeded Indiana in the first round. Milwaukee has the league's worst record and has the best chance to come away with the No. 1 pick in the June draft.

  • What do you make of the Knicks' signing of Lamar Odom?

    Brian Sprowl
    16 Apr 2014 | 8:08 pm
    The New York Knicks made their first move of the offseason before their season officially ended. They signed veteran forward Lamar Odom to a multi-year deal on Wednesday right before the team's final game of the season. Odom did not play a game this season, and the last team he played with was the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013. Obviously, the move seems to be a Phil Jackson one, as Odom and Jackson have history from their time together in L.A. But does the move really do anything for the Knicks? Odom really hasn't been the same since being traded from the Lakers during the 2011 season. And at…
  • Are Kobe's actions funny or just plain disrespectful?

    Brian Sprowl
    16 Apr 2014 | 4:27 pm
    Kobe Bryant is not one to hide his feelings or emotions, and it provides for great commentary. Earlier today, Kobe tweeted that the Lakers had a (expletive) season. He was also noticeably upset in the Lakers' team picture from this year, for obvious reasons. And now, on the last day of the NBA season, Kobe will not be in attendance for the final game of a horrific campaign for the L.A. franchise. Instead, he opted to go to France. Kobe's actions are funny no doubt. But does he go too far in expressing his utter disdain for the Lakers, especially this year? Obviously, as a five-time champion,…
  • Warriors fans: Will you watch the first round?

    Josh Miller
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:29 am
    I really don't want to say anything disparaging about Andrew Bogut, but it seemed like the guy couldn't play one game without getting hurt somehow this season. With Bogut out indefinitely, and the Warriors likely playing the Clippers, do you feel at all confident heading into this series? They would've been underdogs with a full squad, and now without Bogut, I see no way to compete with Griffin, Jordan, and the Clippers depth. Going into the playoffs with an injury-riddled team really makes it tough for me to get excited about the games. I know I'm a bit of a pessimist but I'll probably tune…
  • Sickest crossover you have ever seen?

    Brian Sprowl
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:07 am
    Over the past week or so, we have seen some nasty crossovers. Last night, Utah Jazz rookie Trey Burke was the latest victim of a crossover, at the hands of Jordan Farmar. So with that being said, what are some of the nastiest crossovers you have ever seen? My personal pick would be one of Iverson's many ankle breakers. But I also really like the Joe Johnson crossover on Paul Pierce from a few years ago, and "White Chocolate" Jason Williams had some nasty ones too.

Those who play sports agree with what he says though, "last thing I want to be is one of those guys who never won a ring."

With no disrespect to Vince Carter, the 2013-2014 Raptors are the best team Toronto fans have seen since this franchise started playing in 1995.

Shaq then proves his point by smashing Barry’s guitar into pieces to ensure only great music will be played at the “Inside the NBA” studio, not the bedtime lullaby crap. As the regular season comes to an end, hilarious moments like this are why “Inside the NBA” will be missed going into the closing moments of the NBA…

    Should college players be paid? Drexel University and the National Collegiate Players Association recently conducted a survey to determine how much a collegiate player would be worth in an open market. The survey was conducted as part of a larger question of if/when college players would be paid for their services.

The average college football player would be worth $178,000, per NBC News (via Nick Bromberg of Yahoo! Sports). Coveted players like Andrew Wiggins of the Kansas Jayhawks and…
