    Lithuanian big man Zydrunas Ilgauskas is retiring from the NBA after 13 seasons, 12 of them anchoring he middle for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ilgauskas spoke with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which tweeted his quotes. Ilgauskas: “enough is enough. My body is beat up and I’m tired physically. There is no age limit, but everyone knows…

  2. Are NBA’s biggest stars underpaid? Actually, yes.

    Sep 30, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Is Kobe Bryant underpaid at $25 million next season? What about LeBron James at $16 million? Dirk Nowitzki at $19 million? Dwayne Wade at $15.5 million? Yes, actually they are. A bunch of teachers, firemen, nurses and other hardworking people just cursed my name. If I were on a stage tomatoes would come flying out…

  3. LeBron, Wade, Durant headline NBA stars at labor talks

    Sep 30, 2011, 11:24 AM EDT

    carmelo-lebron-wade

    Friday is a big day in the NBA labor talks — negotiations over the past weeks and years have led to a larger meeting in New York between nearly half the NBA owners and a number of NBA players. The union will have it’s brightest stars on hand — LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade…

  4. What the Heat should do when the lockout ends

    Sep 29, 2011, 5:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Miami Heat. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last season: A complete failure. A total embarrassment. An absolute…

  5. LeBron James brings his closing skills to Boston Red Sox

    Sep 29, 2011, 11:49 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Less than a decade ago, the kind of collapse the Boston Red Sox pulled off in the last month would have been just part of another typical New England fall. It was just another scar for a fan base that expected nothing less and bonded over those wounds. But this time, you can blame LeBron…

  6. Dwyane Wade says Heat need to pass chemistry to win

    Sep 28, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    lebron-wade-celebration

    Chemistry is hard. It’s hard for high school students — if you just said “no it wasn’t” I’m not sure we can be friends — and it’s hard for sports teams. It was hard for the Miami Heat. Dwyane Wade was in a talkative mood on with Jorge Sedano of 790 The Ticket in Miami…

  7. LeBron, Wade, Bosh bring stars to Miami for charity game

    Sep 27, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

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

    Miami’s power trio — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — are reuniting in Miami, and thanks to Nike they are brining a boatload of other NBA stars with them this time. Of course, it’s all for charity, an Oct 8 game at Florida International University. Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated tweeted about it…

  8. Video: Tyreke Evans, LeBron James put on show for Philly fans

    Sep 26, 2011, 8:41 AM EDT

    Nickelodeon Celebrates Largest Ever Worldwide Day Of Play In Washington, Around The World

    I could tell you that Team Philadelphia beat the Goodman League team Sunday. That would be Goodman League team with LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. Philly got out to a fast start and a big lead, and no amount of stars could chase them down. I could tell you that, but do you…

  9. Who will be on Team USA for 2012 London Olympics?

    Sep 24, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski — head coach of Team USA — has some brutal choices ahead of him next summer. Team USA is in the 2012 London Olympics and will come in the heavy favorite, but there are some other very good teams out there that could push the USA — Spain and Argentina come to mind,…

  10. Video: Watch Durant workout, his showdown with LeBron

    Sep 23, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    NBA basketball player Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City Thunder is greeted by fans as he arrives at a commercial event in Guangzhou

    The latest installment of Kevin Durant’s 35th Hour is out. It’s a video look inside the life of KD (put together by his marketing team, so don’t expect any dirt) and you can watch him work out, shop and bowl. Durant really needs a “Bowling Never Stops” shirt to wear around. The best part is…

  11. Heat uniquely positioned to take advantage of possible amnesty clause

    Sep 22, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    In addition to the free agent bonanza that will take place following the conclusion of the lockout, there is now a distinct possibility that an amnesty clause — akin to the 2005 Allan Houston Rule — will release even more players back onto the open market. For those unfamiliar, such an exception would allow teams…

  12. Allen Iverson will not play in Melo vs. Philly Sunday

    Sep 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    UPDATE 10:17 am: Allen Iverson’s longtime friend and manager shot down the idea that Iverson will play in the game, according to CSNPhilly.com: Gary Moore, Iverson’s longtime friend and manager, confirmed that the now 36-year-old Answer will not participate. Which is a little sad, these free-flowing exhibitions are a good fit for Iverson’s game, and…

  13. How would full lost season impact LeBron’s record chase?

    Sep 21, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    You legions of LeBron James haters don’t want to hear this, but it’s true — he is on pace to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and become the NBA’s all time leading scorer. He’s on pace to find a place in the record books in a number of other areas, too, such as being up the list…

  14. LeBron joins crowd, pokes fun at himself in McDonald’s ad

    Sep 21, 2011, 3:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    From our “if you can’t beat them, join them” files…. It’s been open season on LeBron James for a few things in the past year — his hairline, The Decision, and the rather foolish statement about the Heat winning “not, four, not five, not six” championships. Many took all this together as a sign of…

  15. First look: Nike LeBron 9

    Sep 21, 2011, 12:56 PM EDT

    11-360_NSW_Lebron_Wide_ 0082

    Nike unveiled its latest update to the LeBron James signature shoe line, and as usual, they appear to have outdone themselves. The LEBRON 9 is the first of Nike’s shoes to integrate both Flywire technology and Hyperfuse construction, along with Max Air 180 and a Nike Zoom unit for maximum cushioning. All that technology together…

  16. Chris Paul’s charity game to feature LeBron, Durant, more

    Sep 21, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Orleans Hornets

    Everybody wants to play with Chris Paul. We’re not even talking about his recruiting as a free agent aside (at least until the lockout ends, when the rumors will start up again). It’s also true of CP3’s charity game. Paul is hosting a charity game Oct. 1 on the campus of Winston Salem University to…

  17. Charles Barkley tells LeBron James to lighten up

    Sep 19, 2011, 12:46 PM EDT

    Image (1) cbarkley-thumb-250x140-18078.jpg for post 6241

    It’s the offseason, there’s a lockout, and yet Charles Barkley is still finding a way to get Miami fans mad at him. And they were plenty mad at him before. Barkley went on Dan LeBatard is Highly Questionable (a new show on ESPN2) last Friday to talk about whatever Barkley has an opinion on. Which…

  18. Kobe Bryant willing to loan players money if lockout lingers

    Sep 19, 2011, 9:59 AM EDT

    FC Barcelona v Manchester United

    It’s part of what is behind the NBA lockout dragging out to threaten actual games — there are owners that want to exert their ultimate leverage, the loss of paychecks. There are some owners that want to hurt the union, to break it. The theory goes that when the players start missing paychecks, they’ll cry…

  19. NBA 2k12 News: Lebron James tops Kobe Bryant, Stern and Silver to announce picks

    Sep 17, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    michael-jordan-nba-2k12

    In the absence of an actual NBA season, 2K Sports’ NBA 2k12 may be the best some people are going to get this year. The most popular NBA game on the market goes on sale October 4th, and in addition to a wide array of legend players including Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Moses Malone, and…

  20. Alleged father’s suit against LeBron James is tossed

    Sep 17, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    There’s really no way to avoid being happy for LeBron James here. A man alleging he was James’ father filed suit against James and his mother for a variety of fairly ridiculous claims, including defamation of character, and… get this, loss of love and affection. Apparently the legal system is not an abject failure, because…

  21. Leon Rose joins the decertification rebel alliance

    Sep 17, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    The barbarians are at the gate. They’re wearing Brooks Brothers and smell like money. And now, to quote a wholly inappropriate flick for the context, “They have a cave troll.” A faction of NBA agents have been ramping up pressure on Billy Hunter and the union officials to decertify the union, paving the way for…

  22. Brown thinking more Gasol and Bynum, less Kobe for Lakers

    Sep 16, 2011, 5:27 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 5

    Mike Brown wants what Phil Jackson wanted — the offense to run through the post. Not a Kobe Bryant isolation play or him coming off a high pick, but Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum as the hubs of the offense, standing at the high and low block. Will Kobe buy into it? Well, does he…

  23. LeBron played a little flag football with strangers in NYC

    Sep 14, 2011, 2:10 PM EDT

    LeBron Sunglasses

    LeBron James would have made a good tight end — he has the size, the quickness, the soft hands, the athleticism. Based on financial results he made a wise decision going with the whole basketball thing, but he loves football. I’ll add there are not a lot of guys you see in an NBA locker…

  24. LeBron, Durant, CP3 jump in for Philly vs. Melo game

    Sep 13, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The summer of pro-am games is about to jump the shark. That comes when all the big names start jumping into every game, representing cities where they have no real connection. The folks in Philadelphia should get a good show, but that seems to be what is happening for the Philly vs. Melo league contest…

  25. Shaq says he told Celtics not to trade Perkins (and talks Kobe)

    Sep 12, 2011, 8:09 AM EDT

    Former US basketball star Shaquille O'Ne

    Shaquille O’Neal feels like a lot of Celtics fans do — that the Celtics shouldn’t have traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City at the deadline last season. But Shaq went a step farther telling GM Danny Ainge he might not be back and not to make the trade. That’s just one of the interesting things…
