Draymond Green had a pretty eventful night against the Clippers

XB23c20x

NBA fans know Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green as an excitable character. The do-everything star’s penchant for talking trash and, yes, kicking out at opponents is sometimes indistinguishable from the fire that makes him such a force at both ends. Those extracurriculars are now expected parts of his game, if not always accepted ones. …

Tim Hardaway has attempted to make things right after his homophobic comments in 2007. (AP) Former Golden State and Warriors and Miami Heat point guard Tim Hardaway is best known for three things — his incredible crossover dribble, his status as a member of Run-TMC, and his homophobic remarks after ex-NBA center John Amaechi came …

The Kings and Hawks really embraced the NBA’s friendly social media memo

blog

The Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks clearly took the NBA’s message to heart before Friday night’s matchup at the Golden 1 Center. The two teams engaged with each other throughout the game on Twitter. But there weren’t any mean jokes or rude comments. It was all very friendly and definitely not sarcastic. Tonight we welcome …

NBA teams are having a whole lot of lip sync fun at Mariah Carey’s expense

xb23c20x

The infamous diva*stormed off stage in disgust, tweeted, “S*** happens,” and later described the entire experience as mortifying and “a horrible” end to an otherwise “incredible holiday season.” And nobody is having more fun at the five-time Grammy Award-winning artist’s*expense than the NBA. It took less than 24 hours for the Indiana Pacers to launch …

A Rose in the Garden? Knicks reportedly talking Derrick Rose trade

m_6eb8e59bd56643b2940d08243e16e8ec

The point guard position was a bit of a weak spot for the New York Knicks last season. Well, that’d be a charitable way to put it, anyway. Another would be: the Knicks’ point guards got totally and completely outproduced on a nightly basis last season, with starter Jose Calderon unable to break down opponents …

Even a Spurs legend couldn’t stifle a yawn during their Game 2 win

blog

  Predictions for the first-round playoff series between the 67-win San Antonio Spurs and injury ravaged Memphis Grizzlies were fairly consistent in expecting a dominant showing for the higher-seeded team. All four of our BDL writers predicted a sweep, and San Antonio’s dominant Game 1 victory did little to change opinions of this matchup’s level …

Bucks-Grizz gets weird: Henson ejected, Barnes just runs off court

blog

Wednesday’s matchup between the Memphis Grizzlies and Milwaukee Bucks got awfully physical in the fourth quarter, with Bucks big man John Henson getting uncharacteristically wrestling-heelish on a pair of late-game plays that would lead to flagrants, technicals, one clear ejection, one ejection-that-wasn’t, and the latest installment in the ongoing saga that is Matt Barnes’ insistence …

J.J. Redick wants DeAndre Jordan to shoot FTs right-handed

Ball-Don-t-Lie

It looks as if a new potential free throw guru has emerged, and this one would figure to be a little more likely to catch Jordan’s ear. Clippers guard (and Vertical podcaster) J.J. Redick, a career 88.6-percent shooter, has an idea for Jordan. He wants him to shoot right-handed. From Dan Woike of the Orange …

Report: Blake Griffin out 4-6 weeks after breaking hand in fight with Clippers’ staff
