When Pau Gasol was languishing in Memphis early in his career, when he was winning championships in Los Angeles and certainly when he was on a two-year layover in Chicago, there was always the feeling that he would be the perfect fit for the San Antoni…

Adam Silver 'definitely' thinks the NBA will have a female head coach, maybe 'sooner rather than later' (Ball Don’t Lie)
Adam Silver raises the bar when it comes to female coaches in men’s professional sports. As part of the NBA’s partnership with LeanIn.org to promote gender equality, Silver spoke with ESPN.com’s Ohm Youngmisuk candidly about the future of women in the league. In addition to taking steps toward increasing the number of females “in the pipeline” for both coaching and officiating jobs, the commissioner didn’t mince words when asked about the potential of a woman head coach.

This was no feel-good road trip for the Memphis Grizzlies, who had another loss to contemplate on a long flight home. Darren Collison scored 23 points and made two crucial free throws in the closing seconds to help the Sacramento Kings hand the slumpi…

Russell Westbrook was a bad, bad man on Monday night, especially in the closing minutes against the Mavericks. Three weeks ago, Mark Cuban said he didn’t think that Russell Westbrook merited consideration in the race for the NBA’s 2016-17 Most Valuable Player award, in part because the Oklahoma City Thunder guard hasn’t quite reached the Dallas Mavericks owner’s established definition of superstardom. “Kind of the way I define a superstar is, ‘Who do you want the ball in the hands of at the end of a game, or when you need a bucket?’” is how Cuban described his criterion last April.

In his 16-year NBA career, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has hired two coaches: Avery Johnson, and Rick Carlisle. Cuban isn’t alone among 30 NBA team owners in hoping that he’ll never have to hire a new head coach again, but for more secured reasons than most of those other el jefes: Carlisle is an NBA champion and former Coach of the Year that has worked in the playoffs in all but two of the 15 seasons he’d coached prior to 2016-17.

Paul George, like the rest of us, wonders what’s going on in Indy. Three years ago, we knew exactly who and what the Indiana Pacers were. Head coach Frank Vogel preached smash-mouth two-way basketball built around length and toughness at every position, predicated on the presence of an immovable deterrent on one end of the floor and the ascent of a transcendent talent on the other.

Given how Chris Bosh’s last two healthy NBA seasons played out — with blood-clotting issues that cut short his 2015 and 2016 campaigns — one could understand his stance against teams resting players. Perhaps most notably, Miami sat both Bosh and James for the final two games of the 2013-14 regular season — losses to the Washington Wizards and Philadelphia 76ers — conceding the East’s top seed to the Indiana Pacers.
