  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: When you talk contenders, Chicago wants to be mentioned

    Feb 25, 2011, 4:19 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    What you missed while out doing some naked joyriding… Bulls 93, Heat 89: We won’t know until May, really, if the Chicago Bulls are contenders. If they can hang with Miami and Boston for seven games. The defense definitely can, but the ball sticks too much on offense, leaving Derrick Rose to create one-on-three (or…

  2. Chris Bosh thinks Derrick Rose should be MVP

    Feb 25, 2011, 1:33 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh better be careful or he is going to end up in LeBron James’ little black revenge book. Before the Heat took on the Bulls — and lost in large part due to Derrick Rose — Chris Bosh was asked by Bulls.com what he thought of the chances of Derrick Rose taking the MVP…

  3. Report: Miami Heat shopping Mike Miller

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:42 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat need a center. They could use a point guard, too, but center is the big need. They gaze into their playoff crystal ball and they see the Celtics and Lakers and their giant front lines. They realize what a matchup nightmare that would be for them. So the Heat are dangling swingman…

  4. All-Star Game draws best ratings since Jordan era

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    It was more than just Rihanna and Drake (and Kanye). It certainly was more than Lenny Kravitz. It’s the game. The NBA is as hot as it has been since the Jordan era and that continued again Sunday — the All-Star Game from Staples Center had 9.1 million people tune in to watch, the highest…

  5. Video: Kobe Bryant, your NBA All-Star MVP

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:53 AM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Kobe Bryant came out like a man on a mission — the guy who wins the All-Star MVP is usually the guy who wants it most. Playing on his home court (well, not actually the court, I have no idea what that two-toned monstrosity was) in front of the home fans Kobe put on a…

  6. Kobe MVP mission was entertaining, just like All-Star Game should be

    Feb 21, 2011, 2:08 AM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    It was obvious Kobe Bryant was going hard after the MVP three minutes into the game. That’s when, with the score tied just 6-6, Kobe got the ball in the right corner, drove baseline on Derrick Rose, the help defense was late and he went up-and-under for the kind of reverse jam he probably hasn’t…

  7. Biggest winners and losers at the All-Star game

    Musician Lenny Kravitz (R) returns a loo

    The All-Star game is an exhibition first and foremost, and when players are trying harder to entertain the crowd than they are to play good basketball, it’s hard to put too much stock into the results. Still, this year’s All-Star game was one of the most entertaining and competitive games in years, and a few…

  9. Will LeBron James get booed at All-Star Game? (And other things to watch)

    Feb 20, 2011, 3:20 PM EST

    West team members from left, Kevin Love

    Every road arena LeBron James has stepped into this season, he has been booed. Sometimes loudly, sometimes as a token, but always. Will the All-Star Game be any different? Fans — well, not fans in Cleveland but fans in most cities — seem to be moving on from the drama of the summer. And, this…

  10. It has come to this: LeBron feels bad for Carmelo Anthony

    After the All-Star Game practice (where we swear we saw Gregg Popovich almost try to do some real coaching at one point) came the usual round of media interviews. East and West mingled together, with LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony sitting right next to each other. This may be the first time ever there was…

  11. Three Point Contest preview: It’s not just a couple of Celtics

    For all the world cares, there are two guys in the Three-Point Shooting Contest, part of the Saturday night fun in Los Angeles for All-Star Weekend. There’s Ray Allen, who has hit more three pointers than anyone in NBA history. Then there is Paul Pierce, the defending Three-Point Contest champion. They play for the high-profile…

  12. Contenders, pretenders, wish-it-would-enders — taking stock of the NBA at the break

    Feb 18, 2011, 3:33 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Welcome to All-Star Weekend, when the NBA takes a break from playing games to talk about trades. And hear about the great parties that the players went to. Then talk about more trades. Then watch an exhibition with less defense than a Cavs-Raptors game. For the rest of us, it’s a good time to take…

  13. Chris Rock knew LeBron was gone, why didn’t Cleveland?

    'Grown Ups' - Germany Premiere

    Well, maybe everybody does hate Chris in Cleveland now. Chris Rock pulls no punches. It’s why his stand up is so great — he tells you straight out how he sees it. And in an interview with Esquire Magazine (done by Scott Raab who is writing a book about LeBron leaving Cleveland) Rock says Clevelanders…

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    This is America, you can bet on anything. Well, not legally (unless you are in Vegas) but there are ways. And when you do remember that The King’s Speech is going to win the best picture Oscar. But this is a basketball blog, so we’ll talk about the All-Star Game Sunday in Los Angeles. You…

  15. Cavaliers working hard to trade anyone, everyone

    Feb 16, 2011, 1:23 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison

    The Cleveland Cavaliers do not really have a championship roster. You probably figured that out somewhere during the 26-game losing streak. Well, you probably figured it out seconds after LeBron James talked about taking his talents south for the winter. Dan Gilbert figured it out later. What matters now is we are all on the…

  16. Video: Dwyane Wade’s 90-foot ally-oop to LeBron in Heat win

    Feb 16, 2011, 8:45 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Wes Unseld would be jealous. This is as good an outlet pass as you are ever going to see — a football-style, length-of-the-court ally-oop from Dwyane Wade to LeBron James. After the game LeBron compared it to the Super Bowl champion Packers, saying it looked like Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings — which probably didn’t…

  17. Winderman: Bosh ready for anything in return to Toronto

    Chris Bosh

    Now comes Chris Bosh‘s turn. Two months after LeBron James received his enraged embrace upon his post-free-agency return to Cleveland, Bosh gets his turn Wednesday in Toronto. Amid talk of Raptors fans giving him the Vince Carter treatment (security remains beefed up to this day whenever Vince heads north of the border) and Raptors players…

  18. LeBron James misses free throw as Celtics top Heat for third time

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    If you hate LeBron James, as much of the Western world does, today was quite a day for you. After being largely the only reason the Miami Heat were even in the game against the Boston Celtics, James clanged the first of two free throws down two with ten seconds left, then failed to save…

  19. Here’s a tip. If you’re going to heckle someone, heckle smart.

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    So on Friday in Detroit, some genius decided to start making Valentine’s Day jokes at LeBron about his mother. You know the gag. You’ve seen these types of guys before. Acting as if they’re doing something fun, or trying to get at a player as if that’s righteous, when in reality, they’re just trying to…

  20. The implications of Heat-Celtics III

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:43 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    For the first time this season, the Miami Heat will face the Boston Celtics with a better record.  But in the third meeting between the two best teams in the East, the Heat will need a significant amount of progress across all fronts in order to come away with their first victory over the Celtics.…

  21. LeBron, Lil’ Wayne are cool with each other again. All is right with the world.

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    It was one of our great national tragedies, when rapper Lil’ Wayne bared his soul to Rolling Stone about the pain he felt when LeBron James and Dwyane Wade didn’t give him special love when he sat in the front row of a Heat game. I think we all related. Good news. No. Great news.…

  22. It was a Clippers game so the best dunk was… Dwight Howard’s? Yup.

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:41 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    The last five seasons, Dwight Howard has led the league in most dunks in a season. This season, Blake Griffin is pushing him. Tuesday night, Howard taught the Clipper rookie a few lessons — about protecting the rim, about the need to diversify his offensive game (although Griffin is getting there fast), about passing out…

  23. Cavaliers may be losing but Dan Gilbert is making big money

    Feb 7, 2011, 9:39 PM EST

    Dan Gilbert

    On the court, Cleveland is an unmitigated disaster. They’ve won one game since the start of December. They are losing big. On the accountant’s ledger, the Cavaliers are winning big. It’s the remnants of the LeBron James era — money committed before he was gone more than covers a post-LeBron payroll, as Jason Lloyd explains…

  24. LeBron’s effect on ratings dramatic

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    The Sports Business Journal just released a report comparing this season’s local TV ratings for NBA teams to the ratings from last season, and one thing is clear: People like to watch LeBron James play basketball. The Heat’s average rating is currently 5.4; that’s the third-highest average rating in the league (behind the Spurs and…

  25. Does Dwight Howard already have one eye on the door?

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    This is where we are now. When a player is a couple years away from free agency — as Dwight Howard is in 2012 — there will be stories about how if the team doesn’t win a title he is gone. The stories have started about Chris Paul as well, all in the wake of…
