The Sunday Night Football game between the Broncos and 49ers drew attention from many eyes around the NBA, among which included 13-time NBA champion and New York Knicks president of basketball operations Phil Jackson.

Five Things To Watch: Denver Nuggets

fariedusa

The Denver Nuggets head into the 2014-15 season with ambitious goals. The Nuggets are built around a young core that won a franchise-record 57 games only two seasons ago, only to be derailed by injuries and eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. That early exit precipitated the departure of their GM and coach. Last season, the injuries kept coming and the Nuggets missed the playoffs for the first time since 2003, the year they drafted Carmelo Anthony. The core is

Jason Kidd didn’t just burn a bridge with the Nets. He basically set it ablaze with an entire gas station’s fuel supply. Once groomed to be the face of the franchise, Kidd will now have all his images removed from Barclays Center – perhaps even his retired jersey hanging from the rafters.

Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs tips Thursday night at 9:00 PM. If you’re looking forward to watching it in hopes of getting some exciting NBA action, you’re not alone.

SH Blog: Spurs prepared for Ibaka return

SergeIbakaSH1

I recently moved to Ohio, a couple hours down the Turnpike from Cleveland, and a couple hours (but a more complicated drive) from Detroit. I’m not sure how this is going to affect my NBA allegiances. When I lived in Baltimore, the obvious choice was the Wizards, but sharing with Washington people goes against a lot of the things I believe in. In Halifax, the Raptors were the de facto local team, but they played halfway across the country, and

SH Blog: Curry still stressed about firing of Jackson but likes Kerr, Sterling threatens to sue NBA and says he did nothing wrong

Stephen Curry

All along, Stephen Curry wanted the Golden State Warriors to keep Mark Jackson – a man he absolutely loves as a coach, a friend and a mentor in life. He blossomed into a borderline superstar in two seasons under Jackson and went to the playoffs both times after failing to do so in his first three seasons. There was simply too much drama surrounding Jackson and the front office, though, and the coach had to be fired against the wishes of

Bernucca: Jackson’s Resume Alone Not Nearly Enough To Fix Knicks

Phil Jackson

Phil Jackson won’t be awful as president of the New York Knicks. He certainly won’t be as bad as Isiah Thomas was in running the club. And he will almost certainly be better than David Kahn, Bryan Colangelo, Joe Dumars, Otis Smith and Geoff Petrie have been in recent years. But Phil Jackson isn’t Isiah Thomas, or David Kahn, or Bryan Colangelo. He’s Phil Jackson, with a reputation of all things basketball that he touches turning to gold. And that’s exactly what
