  1. LeBron James says neither he nor Wade will win MVP

    Jan 1, 2011, 8:28 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    LeBron James does not think he will win the MVP this season, nor will Dwyane Wade in the mind of the two-time defending Most Valuable Player. From ESPN: “When we decided to come together our Most Valuable Player chances kind of went out the window,” James said before the Heat played the Golden State Warriors…

  2. We end 2010 with some LeBron James highlights

    Dec 31, 2010, 10:00 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    The Lakers won the title and were the best team. Kobe Bryant added another layer to his legacy. Blake Griffin exploded on the scene. The Boston Celtics defied age all the way to the finals then this season the old guys have become the most social-media friendly team in the league. There have been more…

  3. LeBron on dunk contest: “Blake Griffin has home court advantage”

    Dec 31, 2010, 7:22 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James admitted to the Associated Press that he thinks about entering the dunk contest All-Star weekend, but he hesitates. One of the game’s best dunkers, James acknowledged Friday that he often considers committing to be part of the field, then finds himself waffling. James said at some points he tells himself, “Yeah, I’m going…

  4. LeBron James on 2010: “I’m a happy man right now”

    Dec 31, 2010, 2:42 PM EST

    LeBron James

    New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection. And champagne. And singing Robert Burns. But also reflection. LeBron James was asked to reflect on his year – where he and his decision were the biggest story in the NBA and maybe all of sports — by Brian Windhorst at ESPN. LeBron mostly chose to look…

  5. Kobe Bryant still leads everyone in All-Star voting

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:47 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With his worldwide popularity — he sells more jerseys in China than Yao Ming — it shouldn’t be a shock that Kobe Bryant is on top of the NBA’s All-Star balloting. The second round of released vote totals has Bryant with 1,153,694, well ahead of second place overall and Eastern Conference leader Dwight Howard (988,572).…

  6. The Heat should really be moving without the ball more

    Dec 29, 2010, 6:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The Heat have won 15 of their last 16 games. They are currently 3rd in the league in offensive efficiency, despite the fact that they don’t play at a very fast pace, have put most of their emphasis on defense, and have been without Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem.So talking about how the Heat’s offense…

  7. Devin Harris offended LeBron singled Nets out in contraction talk

    Dec 29, 2010, 11:44 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    Let’s be clear, LeBron James was not talking about contraction. He just mentioned “shrinking the (league)” which is so totally different than contraction. It’s just the media twisting his words. Whatever James was talking about, he mentioned the New Jersey Nets and wondered how Devin Harris would look on another roster. Harris told the Star-Ledger…

  8. Miami’s first free agency meeting last summer was with Amar’e Stoudemire

    Dec 29, 2010, 10:58 AM EST

    Amar'e Stoudemire

    One more time, let’s jump in the WABAC Machine and visit the 2010 summer of free agency to think about how things might have been different… According to the New York Post, at the stroke of midnight opening free agency, Amar’e Stoudemire and his agent were meeting with Erik Spoelstra and the Miami Heat brain…

  9. Dwight Howard mocks LeBron with fake chalk toss in Cleveland

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:10 AM EST

    howardface

    The Orlando Magic were in Cleveland Tuesday night and Dwight Howard played to the crowd a little before the game by mocking LeBron James‘ famed pregame chalk toss (which LeBron borrowed from Garnett who got it from MJ, but that’s another story). Well, maybe not mocking, but it wasn’t a loving tribute. Before the game…

  10. Rudy Gay offers more honest take on contraction

    Dec 28, 2010, 3:32 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_gay-thumb-250x185-5956.jpg for post 2117

    LeBron James came off as full of fertilizer — first he talks about how cool it would be if you could “shrink the league.” Then when that sparked a debate about contraction he said he didn’t even know what the word contraction meant. As Kelly Dwyer said so well at Ball Don’t Lie, contraction means…

  11. Miami Heat slowing it down, still winning

    Dec 27, 2010, 11:07 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    There has been a stylistic debate about the Heat this season — should they run more or slow it down? Frankly Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are fearsome both in transition and in the half court, but what works best for the team? I was in the camp that with the Heat’s pressure defense they…

  12. LeBron says he never supported contraction

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:29 PM EST

    Nets Heat Basketball

    When LeBron James recently said that he believes the league’s talent level has become “watered down,” and illustrated his point by asking people to imagine what the league would look like if the best players from the Timberwolves and Nets were distributed among the rest of the teams in the NBA. Although LeBron did say…

  13. Quote of the Day: Avery Johnson disagrees with LeBron on what’s good for the league

    Dec 27, 2010, 2:23 PM EST

    Image (1) Ajohnson-thumb-250x140-11398.jpg for post 1903

    “I disagree. Maybe the league would be better if we didn’t have three stars on one team.” —New Jersey Nets coach Avery Johnson, after being told LeBron James suggested New Jersey was a team that could be contracted (via the New York Daily News). James suggested that the 1980s were an NBA golden age of…

  14. NBA Christmas Day: Naughty and Nice

    Dec 26, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With five games on the slate yesterday, we ran down what happened in Baseline To Baseline and broke down Heat-Lakers.  Here’s who left candy in your stocking and who left coal.   Who’s was nice: Monta Ellis: When Ellis is on, he’s an inferno. And the Blazers yesterday were powerless to stop him. With 39…

  15. What did we learn about the Heat? Lakers?

    Dec 26, 2010, 4:02 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    On Christmas 2009, LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers thumped the Los Angeles Lakers pretty good, winning by 15. Come June, that game was meaningless. That 2009 game looked a lot like the 2010 Lakers/Heat game. Which is to say, the Heat’s 16-point win has no real predictive value. If these two teams do meet again in…

  16. Dwyane Wade will play against Lakers

    Dec 25, 2010, 3:59 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    After some question as to whether Dwyane Wade would be good to go with his knee hurting. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade is “fine” and will play versus the Lakers Saturday afternoon. The Lakers will likely look to go at Wade on the offensive end, as…

  17. How stacked were the 80’s, really?

    Dec 25, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    magiccontraction

    When LeBron James came out and said that he thinks it would be great if great players on bad teams were able to go to good teams because their teams didn’t exist anymore (but he didn’t say the word contraction!), everyone nodded along in agreement. When he hearkened back in the conversation to those classic days…

  18. Santa puts five games under your tree (or on your new flat screen) for Christmas

    Dec 24, 2010, 2:44 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Phil Jackson and LeBron James may not like having to work — you don’t hear police and emergency room doctors complaining — but Christmas is a bounty for NBA fans. Presents, turkey AND ham, family and five basketball games. Perfect. Let’s break the games down. Bulls vs. Knicks (Noon ET, ESPN): This may well be…

  19. Let the “it’s just another game” banter begin

    Dec 24, 2010, 1:55 PM EST

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    The whole of NBA fandom will be watching the Heat take on the Lakers on Christmas in what will rightfully be billed as a possible finals preview. So it’s a big deal, as Brett Pollakoff tried to get LeBron James to say to FanHouse. And LeBron went nowhere near the bait. “If it’s against the…

  20. LeBron suggests contraction might not be a bad thing

    Dec 24, 2010, 9:31 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    LeBron James never actually used the word contraction. But that is how it came off when he talked about three big name players in Miami being good for the sport, how a game against the Lakers was a reminder of better times. “How can it be bad for basketball when you have guys who want…

  21. LeBron, Doc Rivers don’t want to play on Christmas either

    Dec 23, 2010, 10:50 AM EST

    jamespreseason

    Yesterday it was Phil Jackson sounding like the Grinch to basketball fans, wondering why teams have to play on Christmas day. Particularly his teams. But as we always suspected, there is more than one Grinch — one man with a heart two sizes too small could not do it all alone. LeBron James and Doc…

  22. Game of the night: Miami looks good, but not Dallas good

    Dec 21, 2010, 2:17 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    The first time the Miami played Dallas back in November, the Heat players were still figuring it out. They seemed to be taking turns on offense more than working off each other, they were playing slow, it wasn’t outright confusion but they looked uncomfortable. But after winning a dozen in a row they were past…

  23. LeBron James understands why Orlando brought Hedo Turkoglu back

    Dec 19, 2010, 10:01 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns

    When the Orlando Magic reacquired Hedo Turkoglu this weekend in their batch of megatrades, the biggest reaction was confusion. Why would they bring back Turkoglu, who had been let go in 2009 because the Magic felt his skills would erode with age, and then that exact thing occurred? He was a washout with Toronto after…

  24. Game of the Night: LeBron, Miami outclass Stoudemire, Knicks

    Dec 17, 2010, 10:39 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    Even if you believe your city has a legitimate reason to hate LeBron James, it might be best to drop it when the Heat come to town. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned this season, it’s that you won’t like LeBron James when he’s angry. LeBron, who has always played well at Madison Square…

  25. New York vs. Miami: Defend the pick-and-roll and win.

    Dec 17, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat run devastating pick-and-roll combinations — LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas have been doing it for years, and now a few times a game LeBron is setting picks for Wade and that can be an unstoppable combination. After a slow start to the season, the Knicks Raymond Felton/Amare Stoudemire pick-and-roll has become a…
