All but a Memory in the NBA, Baron Davis Wants Just One More Chance

bleacherreport.com — It has been more than a year since Baron Davis said he hoped to return to the NBA, six months since he told the world why, and and equal amount of time since he dropped 44 in an L.A. pro-am game. So, where the hell is he?

The NBA's Toughest Job? It Just May Be Coaching the Warriors Without Steve Kerr

bleacherreport.com — As the evening grew later and the game went longer, Warriors interim coach Luke Walton's gut wrenched ever tighter. The Boston Celtics were threatening his team's mind-boggling, record-setting undefeated streak to start the season and over his brief stint in charge-nine weeks, 23 regular-season games-he hadn't faced a dilemma quite like the one challenging him here on the TD Garden parquet floor.

DeMarcus Cousins Isn't Making It Easy, but He's Trying to Make It Work with Karl

bleacherreport.com — Mikuni, a Sacramento sushi restaurant, makes a roll called the DMC in honor of Kings' center DeMarcus Cousins. The ingredients are a quirky but tasty combo befitting its namesake: tempura lobster on the inside, slices of tuna and avocado on top, finished off with a sprinkling of crab mix and slathered sauces, all of it lightly seared with a blowtorch.

Golden State Warriors Show Maturity in Draymond Green Negotiations

bleacherreport.com — The Golden State Warriors once again resisted their first impulse. Result, once again: Success. Just as the Warriors considered trading shooting guard Klay Thompson for Kevin Love last summer until wiser heads prevailed, sources say the Warriors considered taking a hard line in negotiations with restricted free agent Draymond Green this summer.

Mavericks, Not Spurs, Could Be the Texas Team to Lure LaMarcus Aldridge Away

bleacherreport.com — When it comes to NBA free agency, armchair GMs-as in everyone who isn't an actual NBA GM-tend to pair available players with teams that have the cash and the need, as if the entire procedure is akin to acquiring and installing a missing part on a car.

An Oral History of the 2003-2004 Los Angeles Lakers, the First Super Team

bleacherreport.com — After the Lakers' bid to win four consecutive championships fell short with a second-round loss to the eventual champion San Antonio Spurs in 2003, the franchise appeared to solidify its chance of claiming another trophy when future Hall of Famers Gary Payton and Karl Malone elected to sign free-agent contracts far below their market value that summer in order to win the one honor that had eluded them-a title.

Golden State Warriors Challenging Old, Tired Assumptions About 3-Ball Chucking

bleacherreport.com — OAKLAND-Time to update that old aphorism, "Live By The Three, Die By The Three." Let's be clear: No team is going to win a championship strictly shooting from long range, and no team is going to win a championship with a one-dimensional offense of any kind.

bleacherreport.com — Daniel Poneman has seen enough. The young man credited with discovering New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis took in Game 2 of the Pelicans' first-round series against the Golden State Warriors and realized there's no need to fly to New Orleans for Game 3 or 4 or any other part of the series.
