    ... In his first interview since Blake Griffin punched out the team's assistant equipment manager, the Clippers owner [Steve Ballmer] sounded as if he was prepared to discipline his All-Star forward. Asked Wednesday night if he felt it necessary for the Clippers to take the kind of action that would represent what they stand for, Ballmer didn't hesitate. "There need to be consequences," he said. "It's the right thing to do." ...

    Stephen Curry put together one of his finest performances Wednesday night, scoring 51 points on 68% shooting while going 11-for-16 from 3-point range, as the Warriors beat the Wizards 134-121. Even more impressive is that Curry accomplished this feat relatively quickly — he played just 36 minutes and dumped in 25 points in the first quarter alone. The climax of his game-opening explosion came on a broken play off an inbounds that Curry turned into another dazzling highlight. After a Draymond Green layup, the Wizards inbounded the ball quickly to try to push the pace. As they got the ball...

    Why one determined feline enthusiast has embarked on a quixotic journey to determine which basketball players own--or would consider owning--a pet cat. An otherwise ordinary basketball fan named Alex recognized someone walking into a recent Chicago Bulls game and thought: Wait, is that Dikembe Mutombo? Then something else occurred to him. "I thought about running after him and asking about cats," he said. "I'm really regretting that I didn't." Alex is a 34-year-old radio producer who enjoys cooking, gardening and meditation. He's also the anonymous owner of a website that, somehow, has become a cult hit in basketball circles. It's...

    Jerry West, the model for the logo of the National Basketball Association, wore basketball shorts the length of loincloths. Michael Jordan inspired a major alteration when he appealed for a longer and baggier cut. Then a group of freshmen at the University of Michigan known as the “Fab Five” became a national sensation in the early 1990s in part because of their sartorial swagger, with shorts that dropped below their knees. For years after, the subject of inseams inspired older observers of the game to fret: How low could they go? But now, the hemline is creeping back up. In...

    BOSTON (AP) - Stephen Curry scored 38 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists and the Golden State Warriors improved to 24-0 this season by outlasting the Boston Celtics 124-119 in double overtime Friday night. Counting the wins in their final four games last season, the defending NBA champions have won 28 in a row. They broke a tie with the 2012-13 Miami Heat for the second-longest winning streak in league history, and now trail only the 33 straight by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72. And the Warriors did it despite Curry's worst-shooting night of the year.

    A former Milwaukee Bucks cheerleader has filed a federal lawsuit accusing the NBA team of failing to pay her at least a minimum wage or overtime for her work. Lauren Herington, 22, was paid a flat rate of $65 for games, $30 for practice, and $50 for a special appearance. But her demanding schedule - which required up to 20 hours a week in the gym, 10 hours' practice a week, self-funded tanning sessions, and two-and-a-half hours' preparation before games - meant she would routinely earn as little as $3 an hour, less than half the $7.25 minimum wage.

The NBA responded to this criticism with full-fledged support, indicating that they believed in the cause of a women's basketball league and would continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Over time, naysayers have become progressively more OK with the idea of a few commercials and cable time slots, perhaps because that such matters had very little effect on...

    If the Golden State Warriors can finish off the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals in Tuesdays Game 6 in Cleveland, the welcome they receive on arriving home could rival the one they received in 1975 after Golden States only other NBA title win. On May 26, 1975, the Warriors beat the Washington Bullets in Landover, Maryland, completing an improbable four-game sweep of the highly-favored Bullets. Many hours later, a crowd of several thousand people swarmed the arrival gate at San Francisco International Airport for the late night arrival of the newly-crowned NBA champions. Footage from KPIX showed Finals MVP...

ONeal blamed his marketing firm, Digital Mavericks, for the post and promptly had the team fired.

    SNIP We hear one thing from the media and government agencies, but are we getting the truth? he asks in an entry on his personal website. Shaq backs up his World Trade Center inside job theory by pointing to a YouTube clip of the terrorist attack that he says clearly displays two impossibilities. First, he insists the composition of the buildings was too strong and wouldnt allow a plane to slice through it as cleanly as Flight 175 did. Second, he focuses on a part of the video that appears to show that either a plane or a distant building...

    OAKLAND What's one more week compared to a 40-year championship drought? What's one more week when it means a shot at the first title in franchise history? The Warriors eliminated the Rockets with a 10490 victory in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday, advancing to an NBA Finals date with the Cavaliers. This is a matchup worth waiting for, and a little patience will be required. Because both Golden State and Cleveland made quick work of their conference finals foes, the NBA will hit the pause button for a full week before the championship series opens...
