LeBron James

  1. LeBron James third highest earning athlete in America

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:53 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James shouldn’t flaunt that after he loses in the NBA finals he goes back to living a charmed life and we go back to our lives… but the dude is raking it in. According to Sports Illustrated, LeBron is the third highest earning athlete in the United States in 2011. Tiger Woods and Phil…

  2. Rick Barry say’s LeBron’s coaches are problem, Rick Carlisle disagrees

    Jun 16, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Erik Spoelstra

    The one person that matters — Pat Riley — thinks Heat coach Erik Spoelstra did a good job this season. At least good enough to be back for a second season. That hasn’t stopped people outside the team from speculating about Spoelstra’s future and what kind of job he did. That includes Rick Barry, the…

    Jun 16, 2011, 11:03 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant took a dig at LeBron James last summer. In a way that was very Kobe. Stephon Marbury has advice for LeBron, too. In case you haven’t seen the picture of Mark Cuban at a urinal holding the Larry O’Brien Trophy, here you go. Talking about what Mark Cuban needs to do next, after…

  4. Stoudemire says LeBron needs to respect, connect like MJ

    Amare Stoudemire

    Michael Jordan could be arrogant. He punched teammate Steve Kerr in the face during a practice. There were gambling and infidelity issues. Things might have been different for Jordan in today’s world of cell phone cameras and social media — not to mention blogs — but the fact is a lot of people knew about…

  5. LeBron needs to improve his game… but what aspect?

    Jun 15, 2011, 7:03 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This much is clear, for LeBron James to reach his goal of a championship he is going to have to step his game up. The question is how? For a moment, we’re going to get away from the psychological aspect and what happened in the fourth quarters of the finals, the need of LeBron to…

  6. Video: 10 best dunks of the NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 3:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s take one more video trip back to the NBA finals, because these teams were throwing it down. Literally. There were some fantastic dunks. That includes LeBron actually attacking the rim (so, you know, not stuff from the fourth quarter) plus some Dirk Nowitzki being Dirk Nowtizki. Enjoy.

  7. Kidd says LeBron gets “bumps, bruises” now, rings later

    Jun 15, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Jason Kidd knows about being on the doorstep and losing. He led the New Jersey Nets to the finals two straight seasons playing some fantastic ball, only to run into the buzzsaw that was the Kobe/Shaq Lakers and the Duncan/Robinson Spurs. He was patient, kept evolving his game (as his athleticism faded his outside shot…

  8. A-Rod says we’re being too hard on LeBron, winning rings is hard

    Jun 15, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Alex Rodriguez, maybe more than any other pro athlete, has walked a mile in LeBron James’ shoes. And he wants us to back off LeBron. A-Rod is the best player of his generation (arguably, if you want, but he has put up insane numbers). He is the 12-time All-Star, five-time home run leader who could…

  9. Video: Top 10 plays of the 2011 NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 8:47 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    These were a damn good finals. Close games, plenty of drama, dramatic comeback, some feistiness — these finals between the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks had it all. And they had some great plays. The fine folks at NBA.com compiled these for us and we bring them to you for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy watching…

  10. Winderman: Wade says he, LeBron are similar, can play together

    Jun 14, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (L) and teammate LeBron James wait to leave the stadium after losing the NBA Championship to the Dallas Mavericks in Miami

    MIAMI — Yes, Dwyane Wade said Tuesday as the Heat emptied out their lockers at AmericanAirlines arena, he and LeBron James play similar styles. And no, Wade said, they’re not changing. Amid post-Finals debate about whether the duo possess complementary or redundant styles, an examination exacerbated by Jeff Van Gundy’s on-camera musing during the NBA…

  11. Spoelstra’s job expected to be safe

    Jun 14, 2011, 6:34 PM EST

    Erik Spoelstra

    Given Heat coach Erik Spoelstra’s youth and relative lack of experience, people questioned whether he was the right person to coach the star-studded Miami Heat ever since the day of the “Decision.” Every time the Heat went through any sort of tough stretch this season, Spoelstra’s job security was questioned, and those questions are getting…

  12. LeBron congratulates Dallas on NBA crown

    Jun 14, 2011, 4:42 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James issued this statement on his Web site Tuesday afternoon. Congratulations Mavericks on the championship …especially Dirk, J.Kidd, & Terry who have done so much for our league and worked so hard to get here. They deserve all the credit for what they have accomplished. Thank you to all my family, friends and especially…

  13. LeBron talks about haters, his play in finals

    Jun 14, 2011, 2:07 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Say what you will about him, LeBron James did not shy away from the assembled media on Tuesday and took on the tough questions about his game and his post game comments. It was those comments — saying about all the people who rooting against him “tomorrow they have to wake up and have the…

  14. Break up Miami’s “big three?” That’s just stupid.

    Jun 14, 2011, 1:05 PM EST

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

    Be clear about this up front — the Miami Heat are not doing this. Pat Riley is sane. But there are people out there on talk radio and the Web – including ESPN’s Bill Simmons — saying it is time to break up the Miami trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh (to…

  15. PBT Tuesday morning one liners (with extra LeBron)

    Jun 14, 2011, 11:31 AM EST

    LeBron James

    The Governor of Ohio made the Dallas Mavericks all honorary Ohioans for beating the Miami Heat. It went away during the Eastern Conference finals, but LeBron James is bringing back the chalk toss next season. Here is someone sticking up for LeBron James and his choice to move in the face of all the hate…

  16. Is Erik Spoelstra’s job in danger? It shouldn’t be.

    Jun 13, 2011, 5:11 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    In Miami, the blame has to go somewhere. LeBron James is getting a heaping share. So are all the role players. But you can’t fire LeBron and in the NBA when teams don’t live up to expectations it is the coach whose job is on the line. Fair or not. There are those wondering if…

  17. Nation tunes in to see Heat fail, television ratings up

    Jun 13, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisl

    America loves some good schadenfreude. Miami Heat and LeBron James were on the brink of being knocked out and the nation wanted to watch, which is why the television ratings for Game 6 were the highest for a Game 6 in 11 years (the first of the Lakers three-pete titles with Shaq and Kobe). (Look,…

  18. Steve Kerr says LeBron more Pippen than Jordan

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:37 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A player’s shortcomings become magnified in the finals. What was odd about LeBron James’ playing passively through the last few games of the NBA finals is that he’d been so good earlier in these playoffs — he was Miami’s best player against Boston and Chicago. He attacked in the face of the challenge of Boston’s…

  19. Post game video from Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    The Dallas Heat sounded like the veterans they are, albeit ones overwhelmed by the moment. The Miami Heat sounded hurt, except for LeBron James who sounded a little defiant to all those “haters” out there. Below is some of the post game press conferences from players on both team — including James saying what he…

  20. The Miami Heat will be back. Sorry, it is true.

    Jun 13, 2011, 10:50 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    People around the nation are celebrating at the demise of the Miami Heat. The narrative that it is poetic justice for a team of veterans that played smart and was better than the sum of their parts would defeat the Heat seemed like poetic justice for many. But Miami will be back. They are only…

  21. LeBron has a few arrogant words for those who hate him

    Jun 13, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    It seemed like most of America was rooting against LeBron James. The Decision. The pep rally. The air of arrogance around him and the team coming into the season. It turned people off. A lot of people. Most of America. When asked after the game (in an interview broadcast on NBA TV) about how it…

  22. Dallas won the title, Miami didn’t lose it

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The story was not the Dallas Mavericks and their incredible shooting, it was the Lakers collapse. Then it was how the Thunder were not ready. Now, it was how the Miami Heat lacked discipline, could not execute at the end of games and how LeBron James faltered. That’s not what the story should be. The…

  23. Dan Gilbert, Mo Williams enjoy the Heat loss too much

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:51 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The wounds are not healed in Cleveland. And watching LeBron James and the Heat lose was cathartic for many in Ohio. Or people who used to be in Ohio. Or people who just felt burned by LeBron. Or actually most of America. That includes Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, he of the comic-sans LeBron rant from…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Heat’s lack of discipline ends their season

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:37 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Miami Heat were the most talented team in the NBA this past season. They were two fourth-quarter collapses away from sweeping the NBA Finals. None of that matters after they lost Game 6 by a final score of 105-95, and the series by a final score of 4-2. Miami’s losses in Game 2 and…

  25. Dallas may have won last old-school title for while

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:07 AM EST

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Dallas won it all. They earned it. They get the banner and the rings (if they do rings) and the bragging rights. They earned them. But everybody wants to be Miami. Not the fans. Outside of South Florida the Heat the Heat are despised, treated with the same venom usually reserved for politicians who text…
