  • Lakers' No. 7 lottery pick is anything but lucky

    The best and most appropriate reaction to the Lakers' luck Tuesday came from the Jerry Buss and Chick Hearn dolls sitting on James Worthy's desk. Shaking, shaking, shaking their heads. For their final act of the 2013-14 season, the Lakers tanked the...
  • We Can All Learn From This

    We Can All Learn From This
    I admire NBA commish Adam Silver for taking charge and doing what needed to be done quickly. Former commish David Stern would’ve never done such a thing. He spent most of his term coddling both the players and the owners. He made them rich beyond...

    Mark Cuban gives struggling couple their dream wedding

    Teel Time: One-and-done flawed but not ruining college basketball, NBA
    Like most I talk to or correspond with, I dislike the one-and-done rule that has governed college basketball and the NBA since 2006. Intended to prevent misguided high school seniors from declaring for the NBA draft, the policy has benefited no one. But...

    Why I hope Donald Sterling fights the NBA to the last gasp
    Few things are as disgusting as the sight of a big business enterprise swaddling itself in morality and sanctimony, proclaiming its high ethical standards.  I'm looking at you, NBA. The National Basketball Assn. has been showered with praise for the...

    The NBA won't tolerate racism, so why does the NFL tolerate 'Redskins'?
    Now that the NBA is addressing ownership problems that fester behind closed doors, will the NFL step up to deal with a problem in plain sight? After NBA Commissioner Adam Silver determined that Clippers owner Donald Sterling was the voice on the audio...
  • David Stern, a real league leader

    Commissioner is a title far too limiting for David Stern. He has been part comedian, part dictator, part visionary, part man on a mission, and there's nothing Ron Artest's fists, Gilbert Arenas' guns or Allen Iverson's wardrobe could possibly do to stop...
  • Anthony Davis to replace Kobe Bryant on All-Star roster

    On Friday, Kobe Bryant's spot on the 2014 NBA All-Star was officially filled by New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis. Bryant was voted in by the fans, but a knee injury has the Lakers guard sidelined for at least the next few weeks. Davis...
