LeBron James free agency

  1. Isiah Thomas defends LeBron's right to choose, but says he should have chosen New York

    Sep 5, 2010, 10:13 AM EDT

    Like all of New York it seems, Isiah Thomas has been hanging out in Queens the last week or so. The US Open is in town and Roger Federer is putting on a show. (So did Andy Roddick, but that’s another story all together.) NBA writer Marc Berman of the New York Post approached Thomas…

  2. Practice your booing now: LeBron returns to Cleveland Dec. 2

    Aug 3, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    The entire state of Ohio just circled Dec. 2 on their calendars. Well, except for Columbus which cares only about the Michigan game, but the rest of the state circled Dec. 2. That is when LeBron James and the Miami Heat come to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland…

  3. Jesse Jackson defends his statements about Dan Gilbert

    Jul 12, 2010, 3:04 PM EDT

      Hear the words from the man himself. And I will add this: He’s right about the fines, the accountability in the NBA. Mark Cuban and Steve Kerr got fined for tampering for innocent comments. Gilbert likely will not get fined for this. But what Gilbert did was a far bigger black eye for the…

  4. Heat near deal to move Beasley sign that LeBron to Miami no smokescreen

    Jul 8, 2010, 4:28 PM EDT

    At this point in the funhouse of mirrors that are the rumors of LeBron James’ next move, reality has been hard to tell from dead ends and distorted reflections. Everything, every reaction looked like it could be the way out. But this afternoon, one tangible piece of evidence came though — the Heat are working…

  5. Report: Amare made his pitch, but LeBron wasn't buying

    Jul 8, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Remember the good ol’ days, when the Knicks were the team seeming to be climbing up the LeBron James ladder? When they were a team on the rise? What was that, 36 hours ago? When the Suns Jared Dudley tweeted that LeBron was going to be a Knick. Now, LeBron is not buying the pitch.…

  6. LeBron's choices: It seems like Miami now, but in this drama things change

    Jul 8, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We don’t know. We won’t really know until some time between 9 and 9:15 pm Eastern tonight. What we have now is drama. Manufactured drama. And that makes every rumor suspect — if you were trying to create drama for a show like this, you’d leak different things to different people. You’d keep everybody guessing,…

  7. Suns' Jared Dudley says LeBron James is going to New York

    Jul 7, 2010, 3:50 PM EDT

    I really hope Jared Dudley is wrong about this, because if he’s right we’re all going to be hearing damn Jay-Z and Alicia Keys on a loop for the next year. Phoenix Suns bench guy and growing media darling (he is one of the best interviews in the game) Jared Dudley is saying it is…

  8. Like it or not, LeBron James' 'Decision' is all part of the plan, and it's working

    Jul 7, 2010, 3:05 PM EDT

    When word broke that LeBron James would be announcing his decision regarding the biggest free agency signing in NBA history in a one-hour special on ESPN, the criticism exploded the internet like Brazil going down in flames did to Twitter. Everyone and their mother wants to point out LeBron’s ego, his unfathomable self-concept bent out…

  9. Report: Teams going after Carlos Boozer in last-ditched effort to lure LeBron

    Jul 7, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    The LeBron James sweepstakes are not over. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will be in Miami, and it is possible that James will join them (if Toronto will take on Michael Beasley’s contracts or if the big three are all willing to take a pay cut). But other teams are trying to provide an alternative.…

  10. Teams, some in LeBron James camp caught off-guard by television program

    Jul 7, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    You thought the LeBron James television special idea came out of the blue, imagine the teams that have been courting him? According to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, officials from the teams that met with LeBron did not know of the television special until the word broke on ESPN last night. Here is…

  11. LeBron James isn't talking to anyone, but we're all still guessing

    Jul 6, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

    We don’t know. Nobody in the media knows. That won’t stop us from speculating. We’ll use a shred of information to concoct entire theories. We’ll guess. (Complain about that if you want, but those guesses get a lot of viewers — you like it so we keep doing it). But we don’t know what LeBron…

  12. Did Derrick Rose prefer Joe Johnson to LeBron James?

    Jul 6, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Would you rather have Joe Johnson or LeBron James on your team? Exactly. It’s not even close. Even if you think there are flaws with LeBron’s game, there are far fewer than Johnson. LeBron is a true first option. Joe Johnson is a true second option on a title team. LeBron is a true max…

  13. Cavaliers GM Chris Grant talks after LeBron meeting

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

      You had probably gone through your entire morning without hearing some NBA executive spew cliches. We’re hear to fix that. This is Cavaliers GM Chris Grant after meeting with LeBron James a couple days ago. Pretty much all of the post-meeting press conferences sounded like this.

  14. Do the Knicks have momentum?

    Jul 4, 2010, 8:11 PM EDT

    Please bear in mind that at least among what I consider to be the very intelligent NBA writers and “people” I speak to on a consistent basis, the Knicks should not be here. They were in such a hole, it took Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni two years just to clear the rest of the…

  15. Report: LeBron James to hold off on decision until Thursday

    Jul 4, 2010, 3:09 PM EDT

    Great news everybody! Another four days of LeBron James speculation! I know that’s what everybody really was hoping for. Right. But according to a tweet from the very well connected Brian Windhorst, James is not going to be announcing his decision for several more days at the earliest. Sources say LeBron plans to wait until…

  16. What Cleveland was pitching LeBron

    Jul 4, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    This is just part — a 10 minute video part — of the pitch that the Cleveland Cavaliers made to LeBron James. Slick video’s aren’t going to sell the man, but it is fun to watch.

  17. Cavs to pitch LeBron James with humor, familiarity, and Chris Bosh

    Jul 3, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    The New York Knicks pitched a billion dollars. The Miami Heat pitched championship rings and the value of sacrifice. The New Jersey Nets pitched a media empire. The Los Angeles Clippers pitched… (giggle)… Baron Davis and Chris Kaman. So what are the Cleveland Cavaliers, the home team, the favorites in many’s eyes to retain the…

  18. Who LeBron meets with and when

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Just so you are not in the dark about LeBron James schedule: Thursday: Nets and KnicksFriday: Heat and ClippersSaturday: Bulls and CavaliersSunday: Fireworks and barbecue Okay, we have no confirmation on the Sunday part, although we feel good about it. But the rest of it has been confirmed by Chad Ford and others. Ford adds…

  19. LeBron gets to choose his destiny as free agency begins

    Jun 30, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Living in a free country has many advantages. You get to freely select where you live, who you marry, what you do with your time, where you work, what you do, what you say, and how you feel. But along with those freedoms is a cost. It’s the money you need to accomplish what you…

  20. Are LeBron's friends and advisors really looking out for LeBron?

    Jun 29, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    The LeBron James situation has gotten so crazy that Bodog — the online gambling site that you tell your girlfriend you never visit — has taken down the odds down on where LeBron will land. It’s all too unpredictable for bookies right now. Unpredictable in part because what is going on close LeBron is unpredictable.…

  21. Report: Jiggaman Jay-Z, Prokhorov get first crack at LeBron James

    Jun 26, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Sure, the Finals were fun, in a sort of “two-teams-shooting-35%-from-the-floor” sort of way. But now the real entertainment begins. Watching professional franchises, several steeped in rich history and other heralded by some of the most powerful men in the world, crawl and beg before a 25-year-old small forward from Akron, Ohio.  First up? H.O.V.A.  Yahoo!…

  22. The economic impact of LeBron James' free agency

    May 15, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Some people think the estimated impact of LeBron James’ free agency is overblown. After all, it’s just one guy, with no rings, switching teams like free agents often do. But there are are further implications, including economic impacts. The Media Daily News outlines the impact on MSG’s stock if James were to elect to don…
