NBA renames All-Star Game MVP award for Kobe Bryant

The NBA has renamed its All-Star Game MVP award in honor of Kobe Bryant. Commissioner Adam Silver announced the move on Saturday.

Kobe Bryant a finalist for Hall of Fame, which feels depth of his loss

CHICAGO — It was a decorated stage: Dominique Wilkins. Gary Payton. Grant Hill. George Gervin. Alex English.

Heisler: Kobe Bryant and David Stern, twinkling in the All-Star heavens

Kobe and David, partners forever … Most All-Star Games are only, or barely, that. This one is different, with the NBA honoring David Stern, its former commissioner who had stepped down in 2014 and passed away Jan. 1 at 77, and Kobe Bryant, who died 25 days later at 41. Bryant and Stern were longtime partners … the showman and the show … as this event showed. Stern’s wizardry turned his All-Star Game into the three-day pageant that all leagues now feature, as surely as he guided the NBA through r...

Lakers show determination to stay ahead in the West

DENVER >> The No. 1 seed? LeBron James claims the Western-leading Lakers never talk about it. At least James did not talk about it before Wednesday night’s game against the No. 2 Nuggets, a team that was three games behind the standings. His teammates gathered context clues, like when he dressed in his jersey 80 minutes before tip-off. There were no jokes or smiles, they said. There was no warmth. Alex Caruso, who had not played substantial minutes the game before, said it cast a tone for the wh...

The Celtics are outscoring opponents by 10.4 points per 100 possessions in 863 minutes with Tatum and Brown on the floor, posting offensive (113.8) and defensive (103.4) ratings that would both rank second for teams in the NBA this season.
