  • Did Cavaliers' Rookie GM School Celtics' Danny Ainge?

    As opening statements in a job go, Koby Altman’s was the equivalent of Bart Simpson smashing all of Springfield’s windows by shouting down a combined 20 megaphones. On Tuesday, Altman orchestrated one of the more remarkable trades in modern NBA history, moving an All-Star, all-world talent in Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics. In his first major assignment since replacing David Griffin as Cavaliers General Manager, Altman knew he could accept nothing less than a king’s ransom for Irving, who informed the Cavaliers of his desire to leave northeast Ohio in July as he sought success away from the shadow of LeBron James.

  • Phoenix Suns with quality solar eclipse joke on Twitter

    With the cooler-than-I-expected solar eclipse on Monday came a lot of bad solar eclipse jokes on Twitter. Because that’s what Twitter does. Especially the NBA Twitterverse. We knew a lot of “where on the flat earth will Kyrie Irving watch the eclipse

  • Dodgers win 80th game of season, rallying over Diamondbacks

    Yasiel Puig's two-out single drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and Los Angeles held on for a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday night, making the Dodgers the sixth team since 1913 to reach 80 wins in their first 113 games. Puig's hit was the third off Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke in the seventh, after Greinke had allowed only one hit through six innings. Cody Bellinger homered, doubled and scored twice for the Dodgers. Greinke (13-5) lost for the first time in 13 starts at home this season. He is 10-1 at Chase Field. He allowed three runs on four hits in 6 2-3 innings, but lost the lead by surrendering two runs in the seventh on Bellinger's double, a two-out double

  • After decade full of constant change, Mike James finally finds seat at NBA table

    As Mike James orders his breakfast in mid-July at The Country Club at the Wynn Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, his agent, Neal Rosenshein, politely asks the 6-1 point guard a peculiar question. James answers in the affirmative before ordering orange juice an hour before he heads off to practice with the Suns at Summer League. Wondering where the source of such an inquiry would come from, I ask the pair if water consumption is something of a running joke between the two, who have been in a working relationship in the five years since James graduated from Lamar in 2012.

  • The Bobcats’ 2004 NBA expansion draft helped the Suns land Steve Nash

    Across SB Nation we are celebrating the prospect of an NBA expansion draft that may in our future. Our team blogs are declaring which players they’d protect, and two writers are drafting the leftovers on behalf of theoretical expansion teams on the horizon. It’s a fun project. So was the last real NBA expansion draft, held in 2004. It was a delightfully wacky exercise in team-building that birthed the ignominious Charlotte Bobcats. How did the Bobcats do that summer, between the June 22 expansion draft and the June 24 amateur draft? They have three winning seasons in the 13 since those fateful days, and it took six years to make the playoffs. That pretty much says it all. With one exception,

  • Report: Suns Package for Kyrie Irving Includes Eric Bledsoe, Dragan Bender and First-Round Pick

    It doesn’t seem as though Kyrie Irving is all that close to leaving the Cavs but at least now it seems we know what the Suns are prepared to give up to bring him to the desert. Eric Bledsoe’s name has been brought up in Irving rumors ever since the Cavs star asked out of Cleveland. The Suns have also been consistent in their refusal to include 2017 first-round pick Josh Jackson or budding star Devin Booker in any deal.

  • NBA trade rumors: Kyrie Irving could be dealt to Suns for Eric Bledsoe, Dragan Bender

    It appears the Suns are holding firm that they won't include rookie Josh Jackson in any deal to bring the suddenly disgruntled Irving to into the fold, according to myriad reports. Bledsoe would be an obvious downgrade at point guard.

  • NBA trade rumors: Why Suns haven't

    A week and a half after the NBA world learned Kyrie Irving had requested a trade out of Cleveland, it's quite possible the only thing keeping the four-time All-Star in a Cavs uniform is a 6-8 kid from Detroit with big hair and even bigger potential. Suns rookie Josh Jackson is a sticking point in any trade for Irving, according to a report from Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com. Jackson, point guard Eric Bledsoe and a 2018 first-round pick would be the potential package heading back to the Cavs in exchange for Irving's services.

  • Steven Adams has Thunder coach punch him in gut while practicing free throws

    Steven Adams has improved his free throw shooting percentage each of the past three season and knocked down 61.1 percent during the last campaign. Not exactly Steve Nash territory, but good enough to move out of “hack-a-Kiwi” range. What’s his secret? Well, it may not be one we see DeAndre Jordan adopt, according to Fred Katz at the Norman Transcript. He plays one of the most physical styles of any NBA player. And he owns an unmatched, eccentric personality. So, when he’s working from the charity stripe, he has Thunder assistant coach Darko Rajakovic come out of nowhere and, every once in a while, upper-cut him in the stomach just when he least expects it. Then, it’s free-throw time. That may
