The big news around the NBA was the firing of coach Mike Brown after just five games. There's plenty of blame to go around, but like any divorce, the blame is pointless.

Mike Ingrem thinks so: Come on, guys, grow up. Enough is enough. At first the ridiculing of Krause was cute, perhaps even appropriate, but now it comes across as tall men behaving like spoiled, snotty, petty little children.

The rumor comes down... Read more »
Barry Rozner throws some stuff against the wall. Well, that window is open again and it might allow both Jackson and Kobe Bryant to jump right through it and land in Chicago. Jackson’s a free agent after this season, and the talk in L.A. is that the Lakers will expect him to take a big... Read more »
