Are two No. 1 overall draft picks enough to make up for the loss of LeBron James? Probably not, but the Cleveland Cavaliers got their second Tuesday in the NBA Draft Lottery, and that raised the intriguing possibility that the way really is being cleared for James to return to Cleveland as a free agent after next season.
The Miami …

So yes, our long national nightmare finally ended, or at least the TV networks’. Never have so many paid so much attention to those who will play so few playoff games.
The 2012-13 NBA Playoffs begin Saturday with the Knicks and Celtics, which probably is the premier first round matchup given the media markets, the history, the recent terrorist bombing …

Sometimes when things are going badly—as it was for the Bulls Sunday in a national TV 90-81 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers—you have to be thankful for the positives.
Which were, well actually, they were, when no, well not that…
Oh yeah, no one else got hurt and none of the Bulls many, many missed shots injured any spectators.…

Joakim Noah, collegiate champion, iconoclast, innovative wardrobe manager with a career 8.9 scoring average his first two seasons, once suspended by his teammates, anthropology who clearly has evolved and is fond of talking about “swag,” is now an NBA All-Star.

The question is by whom.
My guess is it will be Joakim Noah, but it won’t be determined until next week when the Eastern Conference coaches select the All-Star reserves.
The NBA Thursday on TNT announced the starters for the 62nd annual event.
The Eastern …

It hasn’t been the best of times, this 2012-13 NBA season for Taj Gibson, at least on the basketball court. Off the court, well, that was different as Gibson agreed to a $33 million contract extension. But in some sense that made it even worse. Because Gibson does care. Gibson has been a lifetime overachiever, right up to his contract …

Perhaps it was appropriate the Bulls closed the 2012 calendar year with a 91-81 loss to arguably one of the worst teams in the history of the NBA, the Charlotte Bobcats, who set a record for poorest ever winning percentage last season and were working on an 18-game losing streak coming into Monday’s New Year’s Eve game.
“We just have …

Will Joakim Noah be an All-Star this season?
It’s looking like it will be a close call with the NBA Thursday releasing the second voting returns.
Noah remains seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. The fan voting is for three front court players as the center position was eliminated this season and two backcourt players.
The second results were similar …

It was a good thing Joakim Noah didn’t add Houston to that list of questionable vacation cities, like Cleveland and Philadelphia, when the Bulls were there last month.
Because based on the first All-Star game returns released by the NBA Thursday, my guess is Noah has a good chance of being added to the team that will play in Houston …
