Kareem: Players like Anthony Davis have value and hold power

MIAMI (AP) — There was no social media or around-the-clock basketball coverage in October 1974, on the night when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar looked up from his dinner plate and told the Milwaukee Bucks that he would like to be traded. As such, hardly anybody knew initially about the demand. If anyone understands what Anthony Davis is […]

Tension between Anthony Davis, Pelicans has created unrest throughout NBA

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — He hunched forward in his seat and wore his black hoodie draped over his head. On the court, Anthony Davis is imposing.

Kevin Garnett takes issue with Anthony Davis' agent over trade request

Heisler: Unlike Magic Johnson’s first trip to greatness with Lakers, this one is no romp

A funny thing happened on the way to Magic Johnson’s second trip to greatness. The first was his decade-long romp in the 1980s when he seemed to laugh all the way to five titles and three league MVP awards with the “Showtime” Lakers. Everything worked naturally for him, even when he seemed too giddy to be serious, as when he threw himself around the neck of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who had hit the winning shot in Magic’s NBA debut … or too naive to know he was in over his head, as when he took over f...
