NBA free agency predictions?

July 1 marks the beginning of NBA free agency, and what a time it should be. LeBron James is available. So are Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, James' and Bosh's fellow Big Three member Dwyane Wade and -- perhaps briefly, if he re-signs as expected -- Dirk Nowitzki. That's not to mention restricted free agents such as Eric Bledsoe and Gordon Hayward, plus trade targets like Kevin Love. What will happen when the players start moving?

Where will Carmelo Anthony go?

The expected has happened, as Carmelo Anthony opted out of his contract to become a free agent this summer. This would make him the biggest name -- so far -- on the market, with the Chicago Bulls considered a primary option. Where will he end up? Would you want your favorite team to sign him?

Late-night prankster extraordinaire Jimmy Kimmel has pulled another one.

His latest: convincing Metta World Peace he was speaking at a charity event, only to have co-conspirator Cousin Sal as his driver and Metta's former New York Knicks teammate Amar'e Stoudemire. The result, predictably, was gold:

Now, we must disclaim: This could all be an elaborate prank on us viewers.

After all, Kimmel is a master of the hoax ... Mr. World Peace kept his cool far better than you or we probably would have.

Kerr picks Warriors over Knicks

Steve Kerr has made his choice, and it's not the job most expected him to take when his name emerged as an NBA head-coaching candidate. Instead of the New York Knicks, who now are headed by Kerr's former coach Phil Jackson as team president, the former long-range specialist chose to stay in his native California by taking the Golden State Warriors' offer. Kerr replaces Mark Jackson, who was fired after a three-year run filled with success but also much clashing with staff and front-office members.
