LeBron James

  1. Thanks to lockout, Heat owner has a lot of LeBron’s money

    Nov 10, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    Sometimes, you really wonder about the people who advise LeBron James. And Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, in this case. Let’s take a step back. Remember how earlier today we passed along information about the Heat’s Mike Miller selling his Miami area home, and how that is a sign he (and everyone else) thinks the…

  2. Video: Top 10 plays from Rudy Gay charity game Tuesday

    Nov 9, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    We already brought you one highlight from the Rudy Gay All-Star charity game in Memphis, but we thought we’d bring you the Terrico White highlight video that is the rest of it. These kind of no defense, wide open games suit White well. And he stole the show over LeBron James, Josh Selby and others.…

  3. Video: LeBron James, Kevin Durant train together

    Nov 9, 2011, 12:14 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    In some fans’ minds, Kevin Durant and LeBron James are polar opposites on the NBA spectrum. Durant represents what is “good” — staying with you team, being humble — and LeBron represents the NBA player ego run amok. Of course, it’s not that clean and simple (LeBron stayed in Cleveland at the same point in…

  4. Video: LeBron with off-backboard dunk, no love for fan

    Nov 9, 2011, 9:59 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    This cracked me up this morning. LeBron James dropped 43 at the Rudy Gay All-Star Game Tuesday night in Memphis (which raised money for Gay’s foundation) and by all reports it was quite a show. That includes the off-the-backboard pass and dunk by LeBron. But the best part of this video is him leaving the…

  5. Video: Author delivers “Whore of Akron” book to LeBron

    Nov 8, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    We’ve already given you some excerpts from Scott Raab’s book “The Whore of Akron” where the Cleveland native slams LeBron James (but really spends most of the book talking about his personal demons and issues). If you want to know more, our man John Krolik did a fantastic review of it. Raab decided he wanted…

  6. If season cancelled, LeBron trade could help Cavs in draft

    Nov 7, 2011, 3:11 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Since we’ve got nothing else NBA related to do today other than stare into the abyss and see if it stares back, let’s talk about an interesting little hypothetical. Let’s say the full NBA season gets cancelled. That leads to all sorts of questions about what order the picks would be in for the 2012…

  7. Video: What “basketball never stops” means to LeBron, Durant

    Nov 4, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Nike, they are good at this marketing thing. While the NBA has been locked out and we have been talking about percentages of BRI and other stuff off the court, Nike has been running their “basketball never sleeps” campaign. Kevin Durant has been the living embodiment if it, so it seems. This video has Durant,…

  8. Wade says Heat embraced the dark side, but it cost them

    Nov 3, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    USA+Basketball Wade Krzyzewski

    Every good story of a hero rising up — say, Dirk Nowitzki — needs a villain to make it work. Last season, the Miami Heat were everyone’s villains. How the entire thing went down — from LeBron’s televised decision to the pep rally — turned a lot of fans off. There was both distaste for…

  9. Shaq says LeBron never listened to Mike Brown in Cleveland

    Nov 2, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Shaq LeBron

    Shaquille O’Neal knows how to sell books. Make friends, not so much. But he’s going to sell copies of his new book. We already brought you excerpts where Shaq throws Kobe Bryant under the bus (and only Brian Shaw had a level head and dealt with the situation, but you don’t want him to be…

  10. Video: Durant thinks Kobe beats LeBron one-on-one

    Nov 2, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James one-on-one. Who ya got? Kevin Durant — and most of the other players asked — have Kobe. Players were asked by the Los Angeles Times after the recent Goodman/Drew rematch in Long Beach. Since we don’t have other basketball to talk about, this hypothetical is worth a discussion. But it…

  11. LeBron challenges Durant to a little football action

    Nov 2, 2011, 12:15 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    We’re not going to see LeBron James ad Kevin Durant square off on the hard court anytime soon, so why not on the gridiron? Stranger things have happened. Monday night Kevin Durant jumped into a flag football game at Oklahoma State University. If you remember, a month ago LeBron James went out and practiced with…

  12. Video: LeBron James plays hoops to Frank Sinatra music

    Nov 1, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    NBA basketball player US LeBron James pl

    As our man Matt Moore pointed out over the weekend, Nike is better at getting out the message its players want to send than the players are. The “Basketball Never Sleeps” campaign works during the lockout as players show you they are ready and just want to play, if only the owners would be fair.…

  13. NBA Lockout: LeBron James and the kingdom ruled by knights

    Oct 30, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT

    World Basketball Festival

    In 1964, the players for the NBA All-Star Game refused to leave the locker room at the famed Boston Gardens. The game was going to be televised, a huge step forward for the league, and the players knew this was their best chance at getting the owners by their tender parts. They refused to walk…

  14. Video: As usual Nike is better at messaging than their players

    Oct 29, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Nike needs the players. It really does. It can’t just market anyone. It has to market the elite guys, the ones with personality. It discovered with Michael Jordan (who we’ll get to in a minute) that the player is what can sell the most in basketball, versus the NFL and MLB which are hugely team-based.…

  15. Dwyane Wade might be too stylish, yada yada, wait… he paints his toenails?

    Oct 29, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    wadeGQ

    I’m not going to lie to you. Talking to Dwyane Wade in person is like being in a Tilt-A-Whirl on hallucinogenics. You’re never on stable ground, you’re not sure what’s going on, and there’s a pretty decent chance afterwards you’ll throw up from the motion. Wade is so honestly so charming, you walk away thinking…

  16. Puerto Rico World All-Star game postponed, stick fork in tour

    Oct 28, 2011, 11:04 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    So much for that “see how much money we can make without the NBA” tour. After seemingly half the stars in the World All-Star Classic constellation pulled out in the past week, the first game — scheduled for Sunday in Puerto Rico — and the entire series now has been sucked into a black hole.…

  17. Dwight Howard latest to pull out of World All-Star Classic

    Oct 28, 2011, 4:28 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    And the players keep dropping out the World All-Star Classic set to start in Puerto Rico Sunday (Oct. 30) like it was some hastily thrown together event that was never going to live up to the hype. The latest is Dwight Howard, the Orlando Sentinel reports. They spoke to his agent who confirms the news.…

  18. Drawing lines: Ambition vs. delusion (feat. Jordan Crawford!)

    Oct 28, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    6064331_600x338

    In the slim chance that you hadn’t heard, Jordan Crawford, per Michael Lee of the Washington Post, said one of those things NBA players just aren’t supposed to say: “I don’t tell nobody, but I feel like I can be better than Michael Jordan,” Crawford said, without the slightest hint of sarcasm. “When I’m done…

  19. LeBron James makes fun of his hairline, then tries to recruit Steve Nash and Jamal Crawford

    Oct 27, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    LeBron James has drawn criticism over the past few years for coming across as narcissistic and/or programmed in his public statements, completely turning the city of Cleveland against him with “The Decision,” melting down in the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals and the 2011 NBA Finals, and his receding hairline. To his credit, LeBron showed a sense…

  20. World All Star Classic tour will go on, minus a few stars

    Oct 26, 2011, 10:55 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Kevin Durant

    It will be the biggest summer showcase yet — what the promoters are humbly calling a “showcase of unprecedented proportions” — with a galaxy of NBA stars. Just ignore the few black holes. Even after some defections there will be a World All-Star Classic tour, starting in Puerto Rico on Oct. 30 (Sunday). From there…

  21. Report: LeBron, ‘Melo, Chris Paul pull out of international tour

    Oct 26, 2011, 5:35 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Chris Paul

    You know that big planned international tour of players going all over the globe? The World All-Star Classic? The legs may have just come out from under it. LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul all have pulled out of it at the last minute, tweets ESPN’s Chris Broussard. This was on top of Derrick…

  22. Big names lined up for “World All-Star Classic” tour (but not Rose)

    Oct 26, 2011, 12:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    The world-traveling exhibition tour that will feature a number of NBA players will get underway Saturday in Puerto Rico, with plenty of highlights to follow. Not a lot of defense, but a lot of highlights. And we’re starting to get a list of who is on board, via Chris Broussard at ESPN. Kobe Bryant, Dwight…

  23. Report: NBA stars exhibition tour a go, starts in Puerto Rico Saturday

    Oct 25, 2011, 5:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s on. Eighteen NBA stars — led by Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard — will be on a two-week exhibition tour of the world. It will start this Saturday in Puerto Rico, a stop that was in doubt 48 hours ago but now everything seems to be a go. That is…

  24. First stop in Kobe, LeBron world tour already in jeopardy

    Oct 24, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    It’s going to happen in some form because the biggest names have signed up — Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and others are in for a six-game world exhibition tour. ESPN’s Ric Bucher reports that 14 players have inked deals. But it’s not that simple to put together a tour, and already…

  25. Can we just be honest and say this is about LeBron?

    Oct 23, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    When “The Decision” happened, we said it would change the course of NBA history. We didn’t exactly see this coming. Since the lockout began, there have been several storylines beneath the primary conflict. The racial component, the in-fighting between agents and union officials, the superstars’ interjecting themselves, it’s been a party of subplots. But this…
