LeBron James

  1. Did Jordan ruin it for Kobe, LeBron and everyone else?

    Jul 25, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    LeBron James is no Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant is no Michael Jordan. Dwyane Wade, Vince Carter, Allen Iverson, Grant Hill and even Harold Minor have not been the next Michael Jordan. Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant will not be Jordan either. Nobody is going to be the next Michael Jordan. Nobody. Ever. We know that,…

  2. Fan gets LeBron’s face tattooed on his leg

    Jul 25, 2011, 10:23 AM EDT

    lebron-james-leg-tattoo2

    I get why one would be a fan of LeBron James — he has been blessed with physical gifts to play basketball like few others. He has the size and strength of Karl Malone, but he’s quicker than most of the point guards in the league. He can play inside or out, he can do…

  3. Video: LeBron James shows up, shows out at Drew League

    Jul 24, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James is often thought to be too “above” things. He definitely gives that vibe of superiority, which is one of the reasons he’s so despised currently. He said he’d be in the dunk contest, then no-showed. He rarely shows up at “average fan” events, and runs in exclusive circles. He pulls that whole “rock…

  4. LeBron, reportedly the one star not “open” to Europe

    Jul 22, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Chris Paul is the latest NBA star “open” to playing in Europe next season if the NBA lockout drags on. He joins Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and a host of others who are open to the idea. Personally, I’m open to dating Scarlett Johansson. I’m open to winning the…

  5. Shaq talks about Heat’s “big two.” Somewhere Bosh shrugs.

    Jul 19, 2011, 4:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    All last season Dwyane Wade and LeBron James did their press conferences together, usually well after Chris Bosh cleaned up in the locker room, came out and did his by himself. That combined with Bosh scoring 7 fewer points per game than either of the other two, and the fact the other two took over…

  6. NBA Schedule released, here are your highlights

    Jul 19, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    This NBA season is shaping up to be a fun one. Yes, we know, we know… IF there is an NBA season. But deep down we want to believe that the owners and players are too smart to piss away all the momentum the league has built up. For today we’re going to move ahead…

  7. Attend a Liverpool game, get to meet LeBron James

    Jul 19, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    When English Premier League power Liverpool tour Asia next month — a chance to get in some warmup matches before the season and promote the brand in China — fans of the franchise would love the chance to meet Dirk Kuyt or Steven Gerrard. But they could get to meet LeBron James, reports the Sports…

  8. LeBron James makes surprise appearance in Cleveland summer league game

    Jul 18, 2011, 5:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    LeBron James made a surprise appearance at the Chris Chambers City League Classic over the weekend, which takes place in Warrensville Heights, Ohio. It’s not exactly Cleveland, but being less than 20 miles away, it’s not far from there, either. So it might come as a bit of a surprise that the crowd received him…

  9. Kobe slips from nation’s most popular athlete to No. 3

    Jul 15, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    What does it say about American sports fans that Kobe Bryant slipped out of the top spot in a poll of America’s favorite athletes and Derek Jeter replaced him on top of the list? That’s what happened in the annual Harris Poll of the most famous athletes in America (via the Orange County Register). What…

  10. Shaq says LeBron’s travails “happened to everyone”

    Jul 15, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal has been through the wars. He’s won a lot of rings, he’s lost in finals, he’s been loved and scorned by the media. Oh, and he had his own reality show. Think what you want of him, he understands a lot of what it takes to get things done in the NBA. In…

  11. Dwyane Wade swats some kid’s shot hoop camp

    Jul 14, 2011, 5:31 PM EDT

    Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's 24th Annual Sports Spectacular

    Dwyane Wade is one of the best shot blocking guards in the NBA. Which makes him especially dangerous if his opponent is less than four feet tall. Not something he runs into much in the NBA (insert your own J.J. Barea joke here) but he does at his youth camp. So during a fun little…

  12. Dwyane Wade still feeling sting of finals loss

    Jul 13, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dwyane Wade loves basketball. He just can’t watch it right now. He still feels the sting of the Miami heat’s loss in the NBA finals a month ago, he told Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel. “I haven’t watched ESPN in a long time,” Wade said Wednesday morning, amid his youth basketball camp at Nova Southeastern…

  13. Rose “damn confident” about Bulls chances next season

    Jul 13, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Don’t you get the feeling we’re going to be seeing variations of that Eastern Conference Finals for the next few years? Bulls vs. Heat. Miami won and they should get better role players and more comfortable with each other in the future — they will be better. Derrick Rose knows that, but he likes the…

  14. LeBron’s former teammate sees two sides of the man

    Jul 12, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    lance_allred

    Lance Allred is one of the more interesting guys in the NBA — legally deaf (and a very good lip reader), raised Mormon, in his youth part of a polygamous sect (that he and his family have renounced) and one of those people who has been in the NBA but comes with a broader perspective…

  15. Derrick Rose admits he wore down during playoffs

    Jul 12, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    It seemed at times during the playoffs (and regular season) the Chicago Bulls offense was a playground style “give the ball to Derrick Rose and let’s see what he can create.” It wasn’t, there were plays and everything, but Rose is the one guy on that team who can consistently create shots for himself and…

  16. LeBron’s popularity at an all-time low

    Jul 9, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    They say it’s better to be feared than loved. Maybe the modern sports equivalent is “it’s more profitable to be hated than loved. ” Because even as LeBron James‘ global brand is expanding to collegiate teams who have Final Four spots penciled in (plus Miami), as his jersey is tops in the world, as his…

  17. Universities to wear LeBron James gear under sponsorship deal: Miami, UK… and Ohio State

    Jul 9, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This should go over well. LeBron James, in his continuing quest to become the most powerful brand in sports, has struck a deal for his Nike brand to sponsor three universities. Players at the University of Miami (the U) will wear the brand, which makes sense, given not only they share of the city with…

  18. Nowitzki walking away from endorsement dollars

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:53 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The game’s biggest names — Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and the like — make more in endorsements and deals off the court than on it. Dirk Nowitzki could be one of those guys. Right now companies are willing to back Brinks trucks up to his house if he just signs on the dotted line. But…

  19. Video: “The Decision Remix” by DJ Steve Porter

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This is the last trip down memory lane about the decision, but this is more than worth it. DJ Steve Porter — the video mashup artist responsible for Press Hop and Press Hop 2 among others — put together a look back at the year for LeBron and put together this video. Which is impressive. Enjoy.

  20. Jim Gray talks “Decision,” says LeBron did not pay him

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    On the one-year anniversary of The Decision, LeBron’s interviewer Jim Gray sounded like others close to the production of the event — they don’t understand all the backlash. Gray went on the Dan Patrick Show (see the video below) and, as reported by CSN Chicago, and first he wanted to clear up the rumor he…

  21. One year ago today, LeBron made “The Decision”

    Jul 8, 2011, 8:05 AM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    It someday may go down with the most legendary player moves in NBA history — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to the Lakers, Dirk Nowitzki to the Mavs (on draft night for Tractor Traylor), and the Celtics turning Joe Barry Carroll into Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish. One year ago today, LeBron James told Jim Gray and the…

  22. It’s summer, but Jason Terry still tweaking LeBron

    Jul 7, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Jason Terry just can’t help himself. All through the finals he didn’t back down and trash talked LeBron. The Mavs won, but Terry isn’t done. Remember how after the finals ended LeBron said that all those Heat haters, “at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life…

  23. Who are the most underpaid players in the NBA?

    Jul 6, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Last night we brought you the most overpaid players in the NBA, at least according to the Wages of Wins blog. But who are the best values? Who are the most underpaid according to the Wages of Wins blog? Not necessarily who you think. Often it can be good player still on a rookie deal.…

  24. Video: LeBron James dunks on youth camper

    Jul 1, 2011, 12:32 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Finally, LeBron James exploited a mismatch inside and attacked the rim. Of course, it was a month after the season was over and it was what appears to be an 11-year-old at a youth basketball camp. The home video is below — James misses a couple of wide-open jump shots (insert your own joke about…

  25. Jamison says players more unified than last lockout

    Jul 1, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    This lockout is going to end when the two sides decide the pain of taking the deal on the table is less than the pain of the lockout. That pain just gets worse as things go along (especially if games, and with it revenue and paychecks, are lost). That is particularly true of the players.…
