    Russell Westbrook, LeBron James

    SEASON RECORDS Miami 46-20 (2 seed in East) Oklahoma City 47-19 (2 seed in West) SEASON SERIES The teams split their two meetings. Miami won the last meeting on April 4 98-93 because LeBron James had a monster game and Heat players were knocking down their spot up looks. In the meeting just more than…

  2. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Erik Spoelstra’s redemption

    Jun 10, 2012, 12:22 PM EST

    Erik Spoelstra

    I’ll say it, I buried him. I absolutely buried Erik Spoelstra after Game 5. He had failed to make any meaningful adjustments, had allowed the Celtics to dominate the structure of the series, and had squandered opportunities to put this series away. I buried him. And hey, shocker, I was wrong. He’s not buried. He’s…

  3. Report: Larry Bird no longer has a relationship with GM David Morway

    Jun 10, 2012, 11:31 AM EST

    Former NBA player Bird attends premiere of Magic Bird in New York

    When Larry Bird was retained as President of Basketball Operations for the Pacers, there was an interesting wrinkle. Kevin Pritchard, not longer-tenured David Morway, was tapped for the GM position under Bird. It was thought that was because Morway, having interviewed for vacant positions around the league, was simply headed elsewhere. Turns out that’s true,…

    As part of the evaluation process at adidas Eurocamp, players went through BAM (Basic Athletic Measurement) testing: a series of five tests which are used to gauge overall athleticism. This is the first year that Eurocamp has used BAM, and it’s an important step in further legitimizing the camp’s relevance to NBA team executives. The…

  5. Video: LeBron James hits a massive dagger three to end the Celtics’ hopes and dreams

    Jun 10, 2012, 10:06 AM EST

    Miami Heat's James reacts after a foul is called on Boston Celtics'  Pierce  in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami, Florida

    The Bosh threes were what won the day. The Wade and-one and jumpers were what ran them out. But this LeBron James dagger pull-up three with 5:46 to go? That was when the Celtics knew. It was not their day. Their day is over. It is the Heat’s day, the Heat’s world, the Heat’s time,…

  6. Celtics-Heat Game 7: A fade from green to black

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:38 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    It’s possible, however remotely, that Miami’s 101-88 win in Game 7 wasn’t the end of the Big 3 era in Boston. It’s not inconceivable that Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers could elect for one more ride. But it doesn’t feel like it. It doesn’t feel like it because of how close this team came to…

  7. Garnett, Rondo snub Heat, head to locker room before final buzzer. Classy.

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:11 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    It was an emotional moment. Doc Rivers pulled out his stars Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen in what may have been their final game together. There were hugs and embraces all around on the Celtics bench. Then Rondo and Garnett kept walking, all the way back to the locker room before…

  8. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Chris Bosh becomes the ultimate ‘stretch’ four

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:01 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Tell me you saw it coming. I’ll call you a liar. Chris Bosh, the most maligned of the Big 3 in Miami, the one everyone questions the toughness of, put the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Eight-for-10, 19 points, eight rebounds and it doesn’t even begin to describe his performance in the Heat’s 101-88 win…

  9. Video: Emotional exit for Boston’s Big Three from Game 7

    Jun 10, 2012, 1:45 AM EST

    Celtics' Pierce, Garnett and Allen sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat during Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    We don’t know what the future will hold, but there’s a good chance that Boston’s Big Three (or Core Four or whatever other nickname you have for them) will not be back together next year. Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett are free agents, and their futures with the team are uncertain. So it was an…

  10. Heat-Celtics Game 7: One quarter of exceptional LeBron enough to send Miami to finals

    Jun 10, 2012, 1:12 AM EST

    Miami Heat's James reacts after a foul is called on Boston Celtics'  Pierce  in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami, Florida

    LeBron James in Game 7 Saturday was not the LeBron James of Game 6. At least not for the first three quarters. In fact, at the half his performance pretty pedestrian — he and Brandon Bass had matching point totals. But with the game tight in the fourth quarter, LeBron put his head down, barreled…

  11. Report: Austin Rivers has a promise from a lottery team

    Jun 9, 2012, 9:01 PM EST

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Lehigh v Duke

    No, the Boston Celtics do not have a lottery pick. But somebody besides dad Doc Rivers is in love with Austin Rivers. At least if you are to believe a report from Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. (One) East scout expects Rivers to be selected in the Nos. 10-20 range, but an NBA source told…

  12. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Chris Bosh will not start

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:13 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters prior to Game 7 that Chris Bosh would not start but will play in Game 7. Bosh played more minutes in Game 6 than in Game 7, and it’s difficult to see the advantage in feeding Udonis Haslem to the KG lions, but maybe Spoelstra’s “riding the hot hand”…

    Orlando's Stan Van Gundy shouts during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis

    Stan Van Gundy’s unfiltered these days. He’s no longer employed by a team, so he’s kind of free to spout off however he likes. He’s not a guy who says things just to say them, like his brother, he has a tremendous amount of respect for players and coaches in the NBA and will want…

  14. Celtics-Heat Game 7 Preview: Five things to watch

    Jun 9, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat's James and Wade react after a play against the Boston Celtics during the first half in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    With so much on the line in Game 7, what are the things that will decide this game? What does it come down to? Here are five things to watch as the Boston Celtics meet the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals Saturday night. 1. For the love of God, stop…

  15. Heat-Celtics Game 7 Preview: The thing about chaos is it’s fair

    Jun 9, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    You want to know the truth about this game, the hidden, ugly, “no one will talk about it because it’s like running a news report on the Disney Channel about how Santa isn’t real” truth? Game 7 between the Heat and the Celtics? All that drama, all the impact on legacies and careers and the…

  16. A super Spurs fan is not having a great week

    You know, sometimes, when it rains, it pours. You’re living the life. You’ve got a custom tricked out motorcycle with Manu Ginobili‘s face on it, the Spurs are the favorites to win the Western Conference Finals and advance with a shot at their fifth title, you’re high on cocaine, the weather in San Antonio is…

  17. Celtics-Heat Game 7 Preview: The disturbing mystery of Dwyane Wade

    Jun 9, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    Dwyane Wade has not been good. No superstar has struggled more in the Conference Finals than Wade, which is bizarre considering his matchups. Wade’s facing Ray Allen, who is better, but not completely back from bone spurs. He should be eating him alive. But the Celtics’ help defense has been brutal in cutting off Wade’s…

  18. Celtics-Heat Game 7: The Truth about Boston’s Revenge Tour

    Jun 9, 2012, 9:52 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Game 7 Saturday night between the Celtics and Heat would honestly be better had the Celtics not won the title. You’d have so many legacies on the line. As it stands, this is the Celtics’ push for a second title, which just isn’t as much of a big deal. It’s not even as important as a…

  19. Thomas Robinson not sold on Anthony Davis like everyone else

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    The hype is everywhere — Anthony Davis is the true only franchise player in this draft. He is the reincarnation of Kevin Garnett (wait, KG is still alive?). He is the best big to come out of college in a decade. He pulled Excalibur out of the stone. He shook hands with bigfoot. Possible No.…

    The NBA’s pre-Draft camp in Chicago, which wrapped up on Friday, is the place where league front-office types get a combine-style look at U.S. college players. The equivalent for international players is adidas Eurocamp, a three-day event which kicks off June 10 in Treviso, Italy. The camp is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and…
