Steve Kerr uses Twitter to laugh at Warriors' season of adversity

Steve Kerr lost 39 regular-season games over his first three seasons as the Warriors' head coach. This season alone they have 43 losses before the NBA All-Star break.

NBA Power Rankings: How things change after All-Star weekend

The 69th NBA All-Star delivered something we haven't seen in quite a while - a competitive game. The final score, a 157-155 win for Team LeBron, underscores how the NBA found the cheat code in balancing entertaining basketball with a legitimately competitive game. The last week leading up to the All-Star break did little to shake up the upper chambers of the NBA standings, but the jockeying among teams with middle-of-the-pack status, as well as those on the outside of the playoff picture lo...

NBA pays emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant during All-Star Game

CHICAGO – From backstage, Kemba Walker folded his arms and watched the video board.

The fantasy basketball waiver wire pickups to make as we head into the NBA All-Star break

If you're already leading the league in blocks, then Matisse Thybulle (8 percent rostered) is probably not worth adding, though he might be among the best possible pickups if you're in the middle of a tight pack in that category.

The exceptions are the Bulls, who play three times, and the Magic, Knicks, and Clippers, who play...
