LeBron James

  1. LeBron, Wade say they are getting more comfortable together

    Nov 30, 2010, 10:59 AM EST

    Wade_James_standing

    Last night after beating the Wizards, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade spoke and said they felt far more comfortable playing along side each other, that they are learning. Watch the video below. But remember this — they felt more comfortable doing that against a Wizards team that is 26th in the league in defensive efficiency.…

  2. Heat organization, Spoelstra in particular standing up to LeBron

    Nov 30, 2010, 8:47 AM EST

    James_tired

    We mentioned something that seemed quite clear in our post about Heat players being unhappy with Erik Spoelstra — that leak had to come from either LeBron James camp or CAA, the agency that represents all of the Heat’s big three. Just people trying to protect their players by shifting blame to the coach. Adrian…

  3. LeBron James, Erik Spoelstra have pregame meeting

    Nov 29, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    Officially, no air was cleared. We all know that’s what it was — a clear the air meeting — but officially no. Erik Spoelstra and LeBron James had a 30-minute closed door meeting before the team’s game against the Wizards Monday, talking about their relationship and the team. And probably about having fun. “I call…

  4. Quote of the Day: LeBron says that everything is completely relatively fine between him and Spoelstra

    Nov 29, 2010, 6:53 PM EST

    Spoelstra_cringe

    “”I didn’t realize. I don’t think Coach realized it either, until it was brought up to our attention. Incidental contact.” – Heat forward LeBron James on the “bump” that recently occurred on the court between James and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. LeBron and Spoelstra then went on to say some semi-reassuring things about the state…

  5. Dwyane Wade in the middle of everything wrong with Miami

    Nov 29, 2010, 5:59 PM EST

    Wade_Mavs

    Dwyane Wade remains the beating heart of the Miami Heat. He remains the focus, the center of the storm. The Heat are struggling in part because he is struggling — with his shot, with how to play along side LeBron, with the offense, and maybe with this coach. And until he figures it out, the…

  6. Tracy McGrady says Wade’s, LeBron’s games “really don’t mix”

    Nov 29, 2010, 4:11 PM EST

    James_mcgrady

    Tracy McGrady is clairvoyant. Ms. Cleo incarnate. He says he saw this coming. While the world is talking about the 9-8 Heat, the slow start and the frankly ugly offensive basketball they have settled into, McGrady told the Detroit Free Press this is what he expected. “It’s what I expected,” McGrady said of the Heat’s…

  7. Clevelanders start drive to laugh at LeBron

    Nov 29, 2010, 11:58 AM EST

    Courting LeBron Basketball

    What to do with LeBron when he and the Heat come to Cleveland on Thursday night? Should Clevelanders simply boo him every time he touches the ball? Ignore him, putting up newspapers like a college student section? How about laugh at him? LaughAtLeBron is a campaign, first noticed by TerezOwens.com, to try to put together…

  8. Erik Spoelstra, Miami Heat players downplay bump, friction reports

    Nov 29, 2010, 11:42 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    We just told you there are all kinds of reports about friction in the Miami Heat locker room… Unless you ask the Heat directly. Ira Winderman at the Sun Sentinel did just that and both players coach Erik Spoelstra downplayed “the bump” and the rumors of locker room dissention. Of the bump with James, Spoelstra…

  9. Miami Heat players frustrated with Spoelstra, Riley’s shadow looms

    Nov 29, 2010, 11:29 AM EST

    Spoelstra_cringe

    On every struggling team in the NBA there are players frustrated with the coach. But no other team has the star power or scrutiny of the Miami Heat. And no other team has the long shadow of Pat Riley cast across the organization and the head coach. So the reports out of ESPN’s Heat Zone…

  10. Apparently LeBron bumping his coach is a big deal

    Nov 28, 2010, 10:37 AM EST

    I’ve never been on an NBA floor playing basketball and then having to walk to the bench for a timeout. Maybe it’s a really easy process and in order to bump into someone you have to deliberately aim or deliberately avoid avoiding people. It doesn’t seem like that when you watch it in person or…

  11. Miami Heat hold players-only meeting after (latest) disappointing loss

    Nov 28, 2010, 10:20 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Heat will have to forgive us, the Heat-seeking public, if we’re not overly impressed by this latest overture. It’s not that it wasn’t, that it isn’t, needed, it was and is. It’s a good sign. But it’s just one lost among so many other bad, bad signs. After Saturday night’s 95-106 loss to the…

  12. Heat’s love affair with the long two-pointer strangling offense

    Nov 27, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Miami got back in the win column Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. But the numbers from the winning box score are still jarring. The Heat took 31 shots from 16 feet out to the three-point line — those are long two pointers, the least efficient shot in the game — and another 16 shots…

  13. LeBron James new logo

    Nov 26, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    We’re pretty sure you watched the entire video of Matt Lauer interviewing LeBron James on Thanksgiving because, well, do you ever miss anything Matt Lauer does? Of course not. Then you certainly noticed the new logo on the shirt LeBron was wearing. According to CNBC’s Darren Rovell, that is James’ new official logo, he got…

  14. More police, ban on anti-LeBron clothing set for his return to Cleveland

    Nov 25, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    Courting LeBron Basketball

    One week from today, LeBron James returns to Cleveland… and Cleveland is ready. The fans have prepped their voices and insults, and the Cavaliers and Cleveland police are ready to make sure it stops right there. Chris Broussard at ESPN detailed the plans: To ensure James’ safety, there will be dozens of extra police officers…

  15. Obama says to be patient with Heat (and economy too, if you don’t mind)

    Nov 25, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Image (1) obama_basketball-thumb-275x275-14042-thumb-250x250-14043.jpg for post 3628

    It is great to have a president that loves basketball, that plays the game, that gets it. I love that there is a basketball court at the White House and Spaulding leather balls with the presidential seal on them. I love that the world’s best players get invited to pickup games there. That also means…

  16. Seth MacFarlane’s odd Nike/LeBron ad

    Nov 24, 2010, 8:30 PM EST

    LeBron James

    Nike went out and hired Seth MacFarlane to do a cartoon ad helping sell the Nike LeBron 8s. If you just asked “who is Seth MacFarlane?” then you have yet to set the DVR for all the shows on Fox after The Simpson’s every Sunday. And you’re probably the guy who keeps asking the neighbors…

  17. Winderman: Heat would like mulligan on expectations hype

    Nov 24, 2010, 11:46 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat would like a do-over. No, not on the offseason haul of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. But rather on the approach. Uh, yeah, perhaps they did get just a wee bit ahead of themselves. “It’s not easy putting this kind of talent together,” Wade acknowledged in the wake of losses…

  18. LeBron James’s plan to fix the Heat: “We need to have more fun”

    Nov 23, 2010, 3:35 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    LeBron James came to South Beach to find his pure love for the game again, to recreate the best times of his life. It was really the best explanation of all when the theories flew around about why he chose to take his talents to South Beach — the time James most enjoyed the game…

  19. Kobe Bryant calls Michael Jackson his mentor

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:44 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is a complex man. We like to paint our athletes into easy to define boxes — Kobe learned his drive by watching Michael Jordan — that are not always accurate fit. They often are not with Kobe. For example, he told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo he learned his drive by his friendship with…

  20. LeBron’s ridiculous shot

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:10 AM EST

    LeBron James

    The Heat lost and looked bad doing it. We can talk about that some more, gloat if you want to. Just go ahead and pretend they are never going to figure this all out and start crushing teams. In the mean time, we can still enjoy the ridiculous athlete that is LeBron James, who continues…

  21. With Haslem out, will LeBron see more time at the four?

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:45 PM EST

    LeBron Post

    Udonis Haslem going down with a torn foot ligament is very bad for the Miami Heat means that the Miami Heat are going to have to make some tough calls regarding their rotation in the coming weeks. Allow me to offer this thought: instead of giving Haslem’s minutes to Juwan Howard, Jamaal Magloire, or increasing…

  22. Game of the night: Where even the Heat have to be asking “What happened?”

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:21 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Memphis Grizzlies

    When I say this, please realize that I very badly simply want to credit the Grizzlies with a terrific win. I have no idea what just happened. The Grizzlies beat the Heat in front of what is likely their biggest or second biggest crowd of the season on a Rudy Gay buzzer-beater fadeway baseline jumpshot…

  23. Miami did the right thing getting rid of Michael Beasley. For both sides.

    Nov 18, 2010, 3:25 PM EST

    Michael Beasley

    The renaissance of Michael Beasley is in full swing in Minnesota. In the last three games he has put up 33, 28, and 25 points, on 56 percent shooting, and he is 6 of 9 from three. Plus he’s got that hair. He has been the focal point of the Timberwolves offense and he had…

  24. Miami Heat reminds its fans how to be, um, fans

    Nov 18, 2010, 2:21 PM EST

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    The Miami Heat have the most star-studded roster east of Los Angeles — but they don’t want their fans to be like Lakers fans. Well, they want them to be rich and willing to pay for overpriced seats like Lakers fans. But they don’t want the Los Angeles fans reputation of showing up late to…

  25. Winderman: Cold dissection of every Miami Heat word may lead to fewer of them

    Nov 18, 2010, 11:26 AM EST

    LeBron_media

    The media work room at AmericanAirlines Arena is the last thing you would expect in South Florida. It is a frosty experience. How cold? A certain transplanted journalist brought in to cover the team this season has been known to wear a ski cap while filing his articulate-yet-arctic postgame viewpoints. Yet the chill doesn’t stop…
