Lakers coach, Phil Jackson was just fined
by the NBA for talking with the media about a possible lockout next year if the NBA and the players union don't finalize a new CBA. As part of the player's CBA or the ref's CBA they can fine those guys, but on what authority can the NBA as a league fine coaches, assistant coaches, and owners?

Diehard Phoenix Suns fan in St. Louis seeking to watch tonight's game. Anyone know where in St. Louis I can watch the game on NBA TV? Alternatively, is anyone in Phoenix willing to use Slingbox or point a webcam at their TV showing the game on FOX Sports AZ?

Can I listen to NBA basketball games on internet streaming audio? Specifically the Portland Trailblazers, but other might feel differently. Their radio station is 95.5 The Game
but when I clicked during a game the other day, there was a talk show on.

There was a player in the NBA who played in the same game for both teams, I think due to the final minutes needing to be replayed on a different date and a trade happening in the meantime. I can't think of the name of the player or teams, and my Google-fu doesn't seem up to the task. Can anybody help?

Anybody recognize the music in the NBA's most-recent playoff ad
featuring Chris Paul? It's a piano instrumental that is very mellow, yet it builds tension well.

Best NBA playoffs ever?
Last nights Lakers/Suns finish sure was exciting, no matter who you were cheering for.
I read an article a few weeks ago saying why this year could have the most exciting playoffs in NBA history. Anybody know where that article can be found?

In 1993, during his rookie season in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neil's weight and strength managed to break and pull down two NBA backboards. The first on national television (NBC if I remember correctly...) on February 7th in Phoenix delaying the game for a half hour. The second time on April 23rd in New Jersey. The best video I can find online for either is an animated GIF
. My Google-Fu has failed helping me find anything better than that. I ask of you MeFi users, please help.
