    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Today on PBT Extra we look back at the Miami Heat and their back-to-back NBA Finals wins. Kay Adams asks if they are a dynasty? I don’t know, I do know that we spend more time defining and re-defining the instant legacy of LeBron James and the Miami Heat than we have any of the…

  3. Celtics plan Doc Rivers press conference, call it off. What does that mean? Who knows.

    Danny Ainge Doc Rivers

    At this point, the Celtics might as well invite the Ringling Brothers into this process, because their talks with the Clippers are already a circus. Here is what we do know: • The Clippers still want to do a deal with Boston that would pass muster with the league, something where the Clippers send picks…

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    No wonder Dwyane Wade, er, I mean Three was seeming a little bit giddy in his post-game press conference. He had two banged up knees (which may or may not require surgery) and had been up and down throughout the playoffs. We didn’t know what we were getting out of him but you had to…

    Trust my first hand knowledge on this — getting into the locker room of an NBA Championship team on the night they clinch the title is insanely difficult (even if you have the right credentials). There is a crush of people. It would be easier for Shaq to fit into a Mini Cooper. But Drake…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James has more than his share of detractors (call them haters, if you wish). With them has come some a different level of scrutiny — I can’t remember a star player who had his legacy defined and redefined so many times during his playing career. With Michael Jordan we waited until he retired (all…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James won NBA Finals MVP, but that honor, which must be given to someone each year no matter how much or how little he elevates his game above his peers, doesn’t give the Heat star his full due. LeBron dominated these Finals. His all-around game on as full a display as ever, he led…

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    The question now isn’t “do the Clippers want to make a series of trades with the Celtics that brings them Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers?” They do. Both sides have basically hammered out a deal they liked. The question is, “how do we structure a deal that David Stern and the NBA would sign off…

    LeBron James wandered around the American Airlines Center court in an apparent stupor – receiving congratulatory handshakes hugs and from Spurs players, surviving a bear hug from Juwan Howard and sharing a moment with Gregg Popovich.

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Youth may ultimately have been served, but age earned a lot of respect. Yes, the younger and more athletic core of the Miami Heat won another NBA title, but the older core of the San Antonio Spurs reminded everyone just how beautiful well played team basketball can look like. And how far it can take…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James scared to take the big shot? I don’t think so. In the final minute of Game 7 of the NBA Finals, LeBron declined what would have been a good pass to an open Mario Chalmers. Instead, LeBron pulled up for the jumper himself and absolutely buried it. The shot put Miami up by…

    Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest…

    Miami Heat players LeBron James and Dwyane Wade stand together during a team practice ahead of Game 7 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

    Mario Chalmers missed a 3-pointer badly, and LeBron James picked a poor time to gamble for a steal. The result was a Dwyane Wade dunk. Huh? With the Spurs in transition, Danny Green threw a pass to Mike Miller as if he though Miller played for the San Antonio. That meant everyone was out of…
