I wonder what they’ll talk about.

LeBron wouldn’t mind getting some of that baseball money, if only it weren’t for the NBA’s pesky salary cap.

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…
Chris Bosh says league needs to ‘revisit what flagrant foul means’ after losing physical battle with Pacers
Mar 27, 2014, 9:01 PM EDT
LeBron James was on the wrong end of the whistle on two particularly physical plays during the Heat’s loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, and when it was over, Chris Bosh was the one speaking up on his team’s behalf. James has been here before, obviously, and wasn’t interested in having his comments become a lightning…

The Pacers and the Heat haven’t been playing anywhere near their best basketball as of late, and whether that’s a product of late-season malaise or simply a combination of fatigue and attrition remains to be seen. Their matchup on Wednesday was largely more of the same, before the fourth quarter began and the competitive fire…
Chris Bosh answers in the affirmative when asked if both he and LeBron will return to Heat next season
Mar 25, 2014, 8:31 PM EDT
True or False?

Miami needed a win and LeBron James was going to make sure they got it. He came out gunning (15 first half shots) and behind him the Heat led most of the way against the Trail Blazers in the second half. Miami was up by 7 in the final two minutes… then gave it all…

LeBron was unusually irritable after Heat’s seventh loss in last 11 games. Time to get the stars some rest?
Mar 19, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT
One of the key reasons the Miami Heat offense really came together two years ago was Dwyane Wade agreed to take a step back and let LeBron James be the focal point of the offense. The season before they basically traded turns and that couldn’t get them past the Dallas Mavericks in the finals. Wade…

The Knicks’ targets that summer: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Amar’e Stoudemire
Mar 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EDT
Miami won two titles going small, playing “space and pace” basketball. (Tell me again how Mike D’Antoni’s system can’t win a title, because this is that with elite players who are better on defenders.) However as this season has gone on the Heat have moved more and more toward a big lineup, with Chris Bosh…

Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…

Patrick Beverley leaves LeBron James in the dust, before attacking the rim and throwing down a huge slam on Chris Bosh.

The mere presence of Phil Jackson in the Knicks front office will have an immediate impact in terms of big-name free agents looking at New York as a possible destination.

Brooklyn started to look like a threat this season when they were forced by injry to go small without Brook Lopez, which meant coach Jason Kidd slid Paul Pierce over to the power forward slot. You knew Pierce could score at the four, but the surprise is how much better the Brooklyn defense is with…

As I’ve watched the Miami Heat excel these last few years, I’ve gained an appreciation for how LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, et al. play the game of basketball. But I’ve also grown to appreciate Heat sideline reporter Jason Jackson. Through all the Heat’s video-bombing, Jackson keeps hitting the right notes. As someone who’s…

Chicago, even without Derrick Rose, is the third best team in the East.
Woodson says ‘legally, no one can recruit anyone’ in response to Melo-Bulls talk. But that’s not necessarily true.
Mar 7, 2014, 3:23 PM EDT
Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has enough to worry about, including whether he’ll even be employed by the team next season, before he can begin to think about what Carmelo Anthony may choose to do as a potential free agent this summer. The latest rumor, of course, had Anthony being told by the Bulls’ Joakim…

Houston passed the first test. The Rockets NBA’s have the best record since Jan. 1 (19-6 coming into Tuesday night) but a lot of that came against soft competition. That was the easy part, the next couple weeks come a series of tests against the league’s best — from that we’ll get a better sense…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

LeBron James could barely muster the strength to lift his head. He walked upcourt with his eyes to the ground, looked up to wave a dribbling Mario Chalmers ahead, and then dropped his eyes back to the court. The Miami Heat called timeout, and LeBron removed his facemask while dragging himself toward the bench. Spent…

Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

I’m BATMAN!!!!!!!! #lebronsmask #darkknightrises #wheresalfred LeBron James pretty much was Batman, dropping 31 points on 19 shots on the Knicks. Chris Bosh pretended to be in the locker room. On the court Thursday night he was more innocent bystander, shooting 3-of-6 on the night.

I’m not sure how you can really regulate “smack talk” on basketball court or a football field or any other sporting venue. It’s not that lines of basic human decency are not crossed verbally all the time — they are — and when that happens there should be something for referees to fall back on…
