LeBron James

  1. Dwyane Wade may miss games due to thigh injury

    Apr 5, 2011, 11:58 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    Dwyane Wade crashes to the ground more than a two-year-old on a playground. He flies into the lane and plays with a reckless abandon that means he ends up crashing to the ground, a lot. Which means a lot of bumps and bruises. And he plays through them. So when he says the pain from…

  2. Expect to hear John Calipari’s name for NBA openings

    Apr 4, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Kentucky v UConn

    Last year, when LeBron James had yet to decide where his talents should go (at least officially), Kentucky coach John Calipari was a hot name. There were reports that William Wesley — the behind-the-scenes power broker now working for CAA — was trying to sell LeBron and Calipari as a package to the Bulls and…

  3. Video: LeBron James made some video game plays against Nets

    Apr 4, 2011, 9:18 AM EST

    Nets Heat Basketball

    LeBron James started out hot Sunday. The Nets don’t begin to have defender that can slow him so James exploited them for 15 first-quarter points and the Heat raced out to an early lead. Some of those plays were pretty spectacular. We bring you some of those, just as a reminder of what James can…

  4. Mike Bibby has made Heat’s defense much worse

    Apr 1, 2011, 8:16 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    In Atlanta, there are a lot of Hawks fans nodding their heads. The Miami Heat’s defense is much worse when Mike Bibby is on the floor. Not just worse, much worse. Tom Haberstroh crunched the numbers for the Heat Index at ESPN. When point guard Mike Bibby has been on the floor for the Heat,…

  5. LeBron joins long list of big men complaining about lack of foul calls

    Mar 31, 2011, 12:54 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    LeBron James is one of the NBA’s strongest men — if you’re going to foul him and not give up the and-1, you better make it a good one. And even if you do foul him, no call may be made as he just powers through you. James joined a long, storied list of the…

  6. LeBron James says Derrick Rose is MVP

    Mar 30, 2011, 9:49 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    I’m not sure there’s really an MVP debate, at least one where the outcome is in doubt. Derrick Rose is going to win it. Like it or not. Complain it’s about the narrative and not the play, or counter Rose is clearly the man leading the best team in the game, make no mistake about…

  7. Video: Cooking for LeBron, he eats better than you

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:40 PM EST

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    I love cooking shows. Love. Them. Honestly, when basketball isn’t on my television, it’s a cooking show. Maybe some cool old-school Iron Chef (from Japan, the American version is a poor imitation), maybe just Jamie Oliver cooking at home. I miss the Two Fat Ladies. As cooking videos go, this one is not going to…

  8. Cavaliers win could be blueprint for Heat playoff trouble

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Baron Davis and his swagger are a great storyline and a Heat killer. The cathartic feeling for Cavaliers fans makes headlines and the legions of Heat haters happy. Heat fans will rightfully counter this is one relatively meaningless game. And they’re right, this one game doesn’t matter. Rather, what should worry Heat fans is how…

  9. LeBron’s entourage gets turned away from Cleveland arena

    Mar 29, 2011, 5:11 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    There was a time — just a mere 11 months ago — when LeBron James and his crew had the run of Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Some say they ran the place. If they wanted an ice sculpture of a Harley-Davidson waiting on their arrival for each game, it was there. No more. When…

  10. Cavaliers bring out big gun… well Baron Davis, for Heat

    Mar 29, 2011, 2:02 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    There has been less hype, maybe there will be less venom when the Heat return to Cleveland for the second time this Tuesday. The game was not even a sell out hours before tip off. Maybe it will be more basketball and less circus. We can hope, anyway. But make no mistake the Cavs want…

  11. LeBron James not worried about return trip to Cleveland

    Mar 28, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    LeBron James

    In December, LeBron James got the reception you’d expect from the fans in Cleveland. Then he and his new Heat teammates destroyed the Cavaliers as you’d expect. Tuesday night, LeBron returns to Cleveland and while he does not expect a warm greeting with roses thrown on the path he walks, he doesn’t think it will…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Heat were setting records (but not playing defense)

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:30 AM EST

    Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    What you missed while watching the last days of Spring Training… The Spurs falling to the Grizzlies (and picking up another injury in the process) plus the Mavericks knocking off (and out?) the Suns are our games of the night. Heat 125, Rockets 119: We got to see a little bit of history from Miami’s…

  13. LeBron and Wade take in a tennis match

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Perhaps you’re wondering what far-stretched angle I’m going to use to justify blogging about a LeBron James-Dwyane Wade tennis match. Well, first, here’s Wade talking about taking the King to the Sony Ericsson Open: The Miami Heat stars showed up at the Sony Ericsson Open to be part of a coin toss before world No.…

  14. Iggy says LeBron has peeled back on his intensity, physically

    Mar 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala was asked Friday if he’d noticed any changes in LeBron James‘ game since joining the Heat. His answer wasn’t what you’d expect: “I’ve only noticed one small thing,” Iguodala said before taking time to find the right words. “I shouldn’t say he doesn’t jump as high, because he does jump as high,” Iguodala…

  15. PBT Friday morning one liners

    Mar 25, 2011, 10:38 AM EST

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Here are some details on the latest effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. They’re trying, but let’s understand this is a longshot. At best. Steve Francis’ agent has pled guilty to tax evasion and a series of other crimes and is looking at a decade behind bars. LeBron James has Kemba Walker’s back. Another…

  16. Heat’s Spoelstra regrets saying players were crying

    Mar 24, 2011, 3:46 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    In a sign that Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is still has a ways to go in being media savvy, he didn’t regret saying that there were players in tears in the locker room after a loss to Chicago the second he said it. But he has come to regret saying it. Spoelstra was on the…

  17. Derrick Rose will win MVP. There are better choices.

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:20 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Stan Van Gundy is right — Derrick Rose is going to win the MVP award this year. He has everybody including Michael Jordan’s endorsement. Influential media members are lining up behind him. The question is: Does he deserve it? Or, more accurately, do others deserve it more? You can make a good argument for Rose…

  18. LeBron James dances in a room full of women on Ellen

    Mar 23, 2011, 9:01 AM EST

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    I’m sure you already know about this because you never miss an episode of Ellen, but LeBron James was on the show recently, playing along and pimping one of his products. And dancing. Because that is what one does on Ellen. In this case in an aerobics class full of women (including an Ellen writer).…

  19. Video: LeBron James plays the drums, Pat Riley dances

    Mar 22, 2011, 1:20 PM EST

    Super Bowl XLIV

    Because if we have to watch Pat Riley dance, everybody should have to suffer the same fate. The fine people at Miami Heat blog HotHotHoops were out at the Heat’s Family Festival and shot this video, which begins with LeBron James on the drums (hard to tell, but he seems to be fine). The Riley…

  20. Jordan Crawford can do more than just dunk on LeBron

    Mar 21, 2011, 10:07 PM EST

    Jordan Crawford Wizards

    You remember Jordan Crawford? He’s the Xavier college player that dunked on LeBron James in a pickup game after LeBron’s skills camp back in the summer of 2009. Which would have been no big deal — LeBron tried to rotate over on defense and was a little late in a pickup game, it happens —…

  21. LeBron’s Q score is better, but still not very good

    Mar 21, 2011, 6:24 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    According to Darren Rovell of CNBC.com, LeBron James’ Q score is higher than it was shortly after the infamous “decision,” but it still isn’t anything to write home about: A poll of the general population [last September] by The Q Scores Company revealed that only 14 percent of people thought of James positively, while 39…

  22. Thunder serious about defense, Miami finds out hard way

    Mar 17, 2011, 3:32 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder

    When Thunder GM Sam Presti traded for Kendrick Perkins and Nazr Mohammed at the trade deadline, this is what he had in mind. It wasn’t just their direct impact — Perkins was in foul trouble and sat key stretches of this contest — but with them in the fold the Thunder are more committed on…

  23. Winderman: Heat charging fans to line up on wrong side of velvet rope

    Mar 16, 2011, 9:41 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Miami Heat

    On a day when LeBron James revealed a bracket on his website that has Duke as his choice, after he previously said he thought Ohio State would win the NCAA Tournament, apparently the rules have changed. Based on a Wednesday announcement from the Miami Heat, that has become abundantly clear. Upon announcing that the team…

  24. Dajuan Wagner considering an NBA comeback

    Mar 16, 2011, 2:51 PM EST

    Dejuan Wagner

    There was a time when Dajuan Wagner was going to be part of the future of Cavaliers basketball (the year before LeBron James became that future). He was going to be at the core of the Cavaliers big plans. Dajuan Wagner, the No. 6 overall pick of the 2002, the New Jersey high school hoops…

  25. LeBron picks Ohio State to win NCAA tournament, not a bad call

    Mar 15, 2011, 8:11 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    So is this about being true to his roots or true to his brand? Or a little of both? In a shock to nobody, the Ohio native is picking Ohio State to win the NCAA tournament, the Associated Press reports. James grew up a Buckeye’s fan. The team also wear’s his gear. James also admitted…
