  • Why is All-Star coach Dwane Casey seemingly always on the hot seat?

    Let’s call him “Coach A.” Coach A has been in City B for seven years. A coach with those credentials should be among the highest paid, with airtight job security, right? Right — except if you’re Dwane Casey, and you are coaching in Toronto.

  • Sources: John Wall, Marcin Gortat sit down to clear air following center's tweet

    Washington Wizards teammates John Wall and Marcin Gortat met privately last week to confront each other about where they stood with one another, league sources told ESPN. It was the first time the two spoke in person regarding Gortat's tweet many interpreted as a passive-aggressive slight directed at the All-Star guard, according to league sources. Both Wizards players requested the sit-down, sources say. The meeting, which didn't last long, facilitated the airing of grievances, but sources say there is still more work to be done to fully repair that relationship. Those close to the franchise suggest these are natural altercations from the rigors of such an emotional season. After a 122-119 win

  • Celtics to get first glimpse at retooled Cavs

    The Boston Celtics will retire Paul Pierce's No. 34 in postgame ceremonies Sunday night at TD Garden. If you missed it, while the Celtics remained quiet at the trade deadline -- adding free agent Greg Monroe -- the Cavs did an on-the-fly overhaul.

  • Bradley Beal clears up frenzy over 'everybody eats' comments, saying it wasn't a shot at John Wall

    The latter happened this week with the Wizards. After the Wizards beat the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night, guard Bradley Beal remarked about the team's improved ball movement, saying "everybody eats" when they pass the ball. Fans and members of the national media interpreted it as a shot at John Wall, how the Wizards were better without him than with him because there is more sharing in the offense.

  • Last three games prove how Wizards playing team basketball can be a beautiful thing

    At first blush, it may seem counterintuitive that removing John Wall from the Wizards' lineup would lead to better passing from the team all-around. The Wizards dished out 30 assists in Thursday night's win against the Toronto Raptors, just the seventh time in 51 games this season they have done so. This is the first time this season the Wizards have had 27 assists or more in three straight games.

  • Wizards face tough task vs. Raptors without Wall

    Suggesting no John Wall is no problem for the Wizards isn't right, but Washington has won back-to-back games since losing their All-Star point guard to a lingering knee injury. Extending the streak against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday is the next challenge. The Wizards (28-22) ended Oklahoma City's eight-game winning streak Tuesday night with a 102-96 victory thanks to a strong defensive effort against Thunder star Russell Westbrook and impressive ball movement.

  • DeMar DeRozan's ghost friends are back in town

    DeMar DeRozan is a pretty funny guy. The ghosts were back at the Air Canada Centre on Sunday wearing invisible OVO jerseys (although only DeRozan would know) during the Raptors’ second Welcome Toronto game against the Lakers.

  • Celtics’ Chaotic Loss to Lakers Triggered Bill Simmons on Twitter

    Marcus Smart made a bad decision on Tuesday night when he opted to take the final shot in the Boston Celtics’ one-point loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. In a wild finish to a surprisingly epic game at Staples Center, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed two free throws that would have put the Lakers 110-107 up with around five seconds remaining. Smart dribbled up the court, checked back and launched a contested jump-shot that bounced out, agonizingly.

  • Adam Silver calls Donald Trump comments “An impetus to continue pushing forward”

    Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and as such several prominent NBA folks took a recent visit to the National Civil Rights Museum located at the former site of the Lorraine Hotel — the building where Dr. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968. The league is active around the national holiday, and most teams have already been wearing their MLK Day shirts and custom sneakers in recent games. Both Silver and NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts (along with several players) were in Memphis — the location of the Lorraine Hotel — for the 50th anniversary of his death.
