NEW YORK (AP) -- Charles Barkley didn't want Kevin Durant to join the Golden State Warriors and isn't sure Durant changes things now that he's there.
In Barkley's mind, the Warriors are still a flawed team.
James Dolan says Charles Oakley has been indefinitely banned from all future Knicks games at Madison Square Garden, saying that it “hopefully won’t be forever” on ESPN New York radio on Friday afternoon. The ban comes in the wake of Oakley’s arrest at The Garden on Wednesday.

SINCE we’re in the dregs of the NBA off-season, it felt like the right time to stir up some debate. We came up with the all-time line-up for every NBA franchise, but that wasn’t good enough. Then, we ranked them.
Jimmy Butler had a triple double and Dwyane Wade was a stolen-rebound-by-Felicio away from his own as well.
Jimmy Butler returned to the court and promptly put on an offensive showcase, even without a working jumper.
It happened again. Somehow, some way, it happened yet again.
No Dwyane Wade, no Nikola Mirotic, no Paul Zipser, no problem! The Chicago Bulls returned to the United Center from their Western Conference road trip this evening and managed to pull off their eleventh straight victory over the Tortrashto Trashtors in a 105-94 victory.
The win for the Bulls also represents a 2016-17 regular season sweep of the Cavaliers.
In a world plagued by uncertainty and risk, these are the three things you can always count on to make their presence felt. Logic and reason be damned, the Chicago Bulls are not going to lose to any basketball team on a Thursday Night Turner Network Television game at home, and that narrative will remain cemented for at least another seven or eight months after this evening.
The Miami Heat star, who has suffered from blood clots in each of the last two seasons, said he is ready to return to the court. The Heat, however, have yet to give him medical clearance.
Chris Bosh failed a physical and has not been cleared by the Miami Heat to start training camp, according to the Associated Press' Tim Reynolds. There was evidence of clotting in his medical test, an issue that ended Bosh's season early the past two years, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.
The latest medical news regarding Bosh isn’t good for his comeback hopes, but it doesn’t completely rule them out, either.
Chris Bosh has not retired. Instead, a joint medical review by the NBA and the players’ union has ruled that Bosh’s illness that caused him to miss the entirety of the 2016-17 season was a career-ending one, according to the Miami Sun Sentinel. For Bosh himself, he still hasn’t ruled out a return to the league.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin has decided to opt out of his contract with the team to explore free agency, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Just minutes apart, Chris Paul also declined his player option and will become a free agent as well.
Chris Paul may meet with other teams, but that doesn’t mean he’ll turn down more money from the Clippers.
Chris Paul will be one of the more coveted free agents on the market this offseason and will have his fair share of suitors. And according to reports from the LA Times, Paul is interested.
The Pelicans just didn’t have enough firepower on the court.
In a game where the Clippers were rested and hosting one of the league’s worst teams, and the Pelicans were playing without both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, there isn’t much that the home team could do to exceed expectations.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lakers fans packed Los Angeles City Hall chambers to witness the mayor and other officials declare Kobe Bryant Day in honor of the retired NBA superstar.
The Portland Trail Blazers tried to find a way to lose to the Dallas Mavericks, but their shooting guard said, “Nay Nay!”
Of late the performances of the Portland Trail Blazers could be termed “sporadic”. That’s if you like three-syllable words and were being charitable. Otherwise the sub-.500 team would be described as “limp and mediocre, headed towards bad” or, more simply, “disappointing”.
It may be remembered as the night the Cavs got their groove back.
Tonight, two teams came into Quicken Loans Arena in need of a win. The Cavaliers had lost six of their last nine games, and their lead in the Eastern Conference was down to just two games over the Celtics. The Pistons, winners of four of their last five, are locked in a tight playoff race down at the other end of the conference.
The Cavaliers take a 2-0 lead over the Indiana Pacers
If there’s one thing that’s consistent with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it’s that they have a knack for making things more difficult than they need to be. This was once again the case with their 117-111 win in game two.
The Cavs win in a shoot-out against the Lakers.
It’s official, the Cavaliers are going back to the playoffs. Not that it was ever in doubt, but with the 125-120 win over the Los Angeles Lakers the Cavs clinched their third straight playoff appearance.
