LeBron James

  1. LeBron James cutting back on three point shots. Way back.

    Dec 30, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    Through the Miami Heat’s first three games, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have combined for zero three-point attempts. Not one. Last season they would have averaged 19 by now. This is not by accident. As part of Miami’s new aggressive, up-tempo style LeBron and Wade are trying to attack the rim, not settle for threes.…

  2. Kevin Garnett to buy stake in Italian soccer club Roma

    Dec 30, 2011, 9:43 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    Not to be outdone by LeBron James (who owns a piece of Liverpool in the English Premiere League), Kevin Garnett has gotten into the European club ownership pool. He is about to own a piece of Roma of the Serie A league in Italy, reports the Associated Press. Roma confirmed to The Associated Press that…

  3. Did Dwyane Wade travel on his game winner?

    Dec 29, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    UPDATE (6:54 PM EST): We may have jumped the gun a bit. Or jump stopped the gun a bit? Too much? Okay. After receiving clarification on jump stop rules from the league office, it’s now clear the Wade did not travel on his game-winning bucket against the Charlotte Bobcats. For clarification, Tim Frank, who spoke on…

  4. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  5. Video: LeBron James dunk blocked by opponents head

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James looks downcourt between plays against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    This is the best block of the year. Guaranteed. Even though it should have been a bucket. LeBron James‘ powerful dunk is blocked by the head of the Bobcats Gerald Henderson. The ball went through the basket as Henderson tried to go for the traditional block but it hits his head and bounces out. The…

  6. Making the case for Rajon Rondo as a franchise player

    Dec 28, 2011, 6:20 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    We keep hearing rumors that Rajon Rondo is on the trade block — it had been for Chris Paul but the Celtics will listen to other offers, too. They are not going to move him for just anyone, but he’s not the easiest player to get along with and Boston is keeping its options open.…

  7. Don’t expect zone defense to suddenly be Heat stopper

    Dec 28, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The NBA is a copycat league — what works for one team will be copied by others. Almost instantly. So when the Boston Celtics threw a pure zone at the Heat and climbed back into the game Tuesday night, scouts took notice. You can be sure that the Heat are going to see a lot…

  8. Welcome Norris Cole, your new fan favorite in Miami

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:55 PM EDT

    Norris Cole Getty

    Norris Cole was fearless. Fans can sense that and love it. Cole became the new fan favorite (behind the big 3) in Miami by scoring 14 fourth-quarter points to stave off a Boston comeback and keep the Heat perfect on the young season. Cole, the rookie out of Cleveland State, was the man knocking down…

  9. Boston fights back but Miami relentless, too much for C’s

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Boston would not get steamrolled. You’ve got to give them that. When Dallas found themselves getting overwhelmed early by the aggressive and up-tempo version of the Heat on Christmas Day, the Mavs rolled over and played dead. Not Boston. They scrapped and zoned all the way back to make it a game. But in the…

    You were just saying to yourself “where can I see the Miami Heat roster laid out in neon with all the guys dressed very stylishly?” Well, we’re here to help. This is your 2011 Miami Heat intro video. Enjoy. At least this year they don’t have to tell the fans to show up on time…

  11. Preview: Will Miami be able to run over Boston, too?

    Dec 27, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    lebron-garnett1

    Miami looked dominant on opening day. They came into the season trying to unbalance a defense with speed and aggressiveness, and it worked on Dallas — Miami had 100 possessions, nine more than they averaged last season. But Boston is a better defensive squad and should prove an interesting preseason test. The two teams meet…

  12. Doc Rivers: Paul Pierce out Tuesday against Heat

    Dec 27, 2011, 3:36 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Beating the Miami Heat is a challenge anyway, but Boston is going to have to do it without Paul Pierce on Tuesday night. Doc Rivers confirmed that, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. That means Sasha Pavlovic gets the start and Marquis Daniels will get a lot of run. Pavlovic talked about getting to guard…

  13. Video: Ira Winderman talks evolution of the Miami Heat

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    The Miami Heat were a running team. LeBron James was camped out in the post, as was Dwyane Wade. It’s just one game, but our own Ira Winderman — who covers the team — talks the evolution of the Heat this season and how they are trying to grow things. How these Heat are different…

  14. Tuesday And-1 links: Why all the Kris Humphries hate?

    Dec 27, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries, New Jersey Nets, Washington Wizards

    New name, same drill. This is our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Washington Wizards fans booed Kris Humphries all night long Monday. Well done, Washingtonians. Way to side with the woman who became…

  15. Now off to the races: the Miami Heat

    Dec 26, 2011, 7:57 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Tom Haberstroh has some thoughts on the Miami Heat’s new “Pace and Space” offense after the Heat’s opening-day blowout of the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Here’s a quick excerpt from his post, which starts with a description of LeBron James drawing a foul on a fast break after a made basket: LeBron blurred past the…

  16. Five things we learned watching the NBA on Christmas

    Dec 26, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    The NBA gave five Christmas day presents to the fans… which were really more like belated birthday gifts disguised as Christmas gifts because we should have opened the NBA season on Nov. 1. But we’ll forgive and move on, like we do with family around the holidays. We’re just glad to have the NBA back.…

  17. Miami 105 Dallas 94: Heat unleash the Nightmare on Christmas for Mavs

    Dec 25, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    heat_mavericks2

    A three-part preface, to begin, before we cover the Heat’s shelling/drilling/slaughter of the Mavericks. It’s the first game of the season, and the first game of the season is never indicative of how the season will go for either team, even if it seems like it in retrospect. Th Celtics beat the Heat in the…

  18. Video: LeBron, Wade convert double alley-oop against the Mavericks

    Dec 25, 2011, 4:59 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    The Christmas Day, Finals rematch between the Heat and the Mavericks clearly meant a lot more to Miami than it did to Dallas. The Heat led by 32 points at the end of three quarters, and weren’t only dominating, but were doing so in style. Check out this alley-oop from Mario Chalmers to LeBron James,…

    Dec 24, 2011, 3:05 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Wait, so we’re going to have actual, real-life games on Sunday? Like, for real? With defense and actual coordinated playsets (as opposed the summer exhibitions) and everything? BEST. CHRISTMAS. EVER. And since ’tis the season and all, we thought it would be good to put together what the teams playing in Sunday’s season openers really…

    Clippers' Paul sails to the basket as Lakers' players watch during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The Knicks don’t make sense. ***************************** Every team’s fans are defensive of their squad. I like to single out specific fanbases for sport, but in reality, it doesn’t matter the locale or composition. Teams fans will react similarly in most cases provided the writing is not on the wall in gigantic stenciled block letters that…

    Pictures of the Christmas Day special edition kicks that will be worn by Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Amar’e Stoudemire have trickled in over the past couple of weeks, but with the holiday almost upon us, Nike has made the release of the shoes official. So, we’ve gathered some photos of them all…

  23. Previewing NBA’s Christmas Day tip-off

    Dec 23, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    Time to unwrap the present of an NBA season — and just like the gifts under the tree there may be some assembly required. Condensed training camps and just two preseason games is going to mean some sloppy openers on Christmas day. But they are games, which are vastly superior to antitrust lawsuits. So let’s…

  24. Rose, Durant go different path with contracts than LeBron

    Dec 23, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose attends news conference in Chicago

    When LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade came up for contract extensions, they all asked for three-year deals, or options that let them opt out of their deals after three years. The idea was simple — gain leverage over the team, pressure them to build a winner or they could lose their star. (We…

    NBA basketball player US LeBron James pl

    The video is pretty much exactly what it says it is. LeBron James shoots an airball in the Heat’s preseason game Wednesday. Enjoy the schadenfreude. It does not mean anything. LeBron remains the best player walking the planet.
