LeBron James

  1. LeBron may not have a ring, but he made Heat owners a lot of money

    Heat fans – well, actually mostly Heat haters — were beating up LeBron James after fourth quarter struggles in the finals. The Internet is no fan of the “don’t kick a man when he’d down” axiom. But the Heat’s management has been nothing but supportive. In part because they know if they want another banner…

  2. Video: TMZ mistakes Greg Oden for LeBron James

    Jun 21, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    Before we get started, it’s important to note that TMZ is the worst thing to happen to reporting … well, pretty much ever. Obnoxious, talentless dudes loitering outside clubs, restaurants, and airports screaming down athletes and celebrities with video camera in hand hoping they’ll say anything remotely interesting couldn’t be more annoying, and it should…

  3. Pat Riley says he is not going to coach, break up “Big 3″

    Jun 21, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Pat Riley is not going to coach the Miami Heat next season. No, he is not going to break up the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh either. Riley had his annual end-of-season meeting with the media Tuesday and sounded like a guy who doesn’t like to lose but realizes the huge…

  4. Report: Pat Riley has sent word to nix trade offers for any of the Big 3

    Jun 19, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    As soon as the Heat started struggling, all the way back in November of 2010, the ideas started coming in. “What if they traded Chris Bosh?” The ideas continued all the way through the Finals including a few insane people talking about how they need to trade LeBron James. Sorry, I don’t care how much…

  5. Isiah Thomas: LeBron is going through what all stars do

    Jun 17, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Isiah Thomas is making some sense. So, clearly we are not talking trades. But don’t forget Thomas is a Hall of Fame point guard who led a team to multiple rings and knows what it takes to climb the mountain. He got smacked down by the Celtics plenty before he reached the summit. And LeBron…

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Trying to understand the hatred directed at LeBron James has been a hot topic in recent days, and Forbes Magazine has taken up the issue. Maybe my favorite of the LeBron discussions was between Dan Shanoff and Sherwood Strauss. Jason Terry wants the Mavericks to retire his jersey. (Um, if you have to ask for…

  7. Chris Bosh talks Game 6 tears, emotion

    Jun 17, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    I came out of Game 6, and really these entire playoffs, liking Chris Bosh more than I did going in. And I liked him going in. On the court in the playoffs he showed how he can be a quality counterbalance to the Heat’s ball handling combination of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. When given…

  8. LeBron James, shockingly, will not film his scripted comedy this summer

    Jun 16, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Well, proof does now exist that LeBron James has at least a bit of awareness about his public image in the aftermath of his meltdown in the 2011 NBA Finals. From Jeff Sneider of the Daily Variety: Exclusive: LeBron James will have to wait at least another year to make his Hollywood debut. The Miami Heat…

  9. LeBron James third highest earning athlete in America

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    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…

    Jun 16, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    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…

    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…

    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…

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

    Jun 15, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    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…

    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.

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

    Jun 15, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    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…

    Jun 15, 2011, 10:12 AM EDT

    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…

    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…

    Jun 14, 2011, 6:34 PM EDT

    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…

    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.

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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,…
