LeBron James

  1. Dwight Howard is saying all the right things, which is not good for Orlando

    Jan 15, 2011, 4:35 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    Free agency and the years prior to it will never be the same after “The Decision.”  We heard LeBron James say all the right things. “I love Cleveland.” “I love our fans.” “I would love to win a championship here.” But what was missing was James ever giving the words that would bind him to…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Two entertaining games and some ice cold Heat

    Jan 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EST

    Durant Westbrook

    What you missed while thinking about the worst things people call food…. Thunder 125, Magic 124: Two teams that will make their bones in the playoffs on defense set it aside for a night, and that led to one really entertaining game. To be fair, there was a lot of hot offensive talent on the…

  3. LeBron out Thursday against Nuggets due to ankle sprain

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:20 PM EST

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is going to miss his first game of the season Thursday, sitting out the game in Denver against the Nuggets. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called James “doubtful” and since then multiple reports have him sitting out. James Jones will start in James’ place. LeBron was limping pretty badly when he rolled his ankle…

  4. Winderman: Lose a free agent? You should get another draft pick.

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:16 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Among counterproposals offered recently by the National Basketball Players Association during collective-bargaining negotiations were various means to make it easier to facilitate trades. That, of course, is the type of item you put on the table as a means to eventually remove it when it comes down to cash concerns. But last summer, and this…

  5. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  6. Game of the night: The Clippers announce their presence with authority against Heat

    Jan 13, 2011, 3:35 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, LeBron James

    The Clippers have arrived. Not arrived like a powerhouse in the Western Conference. Not even arrived like they will be a playoff team (they dug too big a hole early on to climb out of it). But arrived on the national radar. You need to be watching this team. Wednesday they announced their arrival with…

  7. LeBron James says he is day-to-day with sprained ankle

    Jan 13, 2011, 2:45 AM EST

    LeBron James

    In the fourth quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Clippers — yes, the Heat lost to the Clippers, you read that right — LeBron James attacked the basket and after a missed layup rolled his ankle as he landed and he tried to keep weight off it as he ended up 10 feet off…

  8. LeBron says nothing personal in tweet about Cleveland

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:54 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Remember last night, after the Cavaliers Poseidon Adventure-level disaster against the Lakers in a 55-point loss, LeBron let out what seemed a pretty personal shot via twitter? Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything! Well, before tonight’s game against the Clippers James…

  9. ‘Melo talks to LeBron, adds situations are different

    Jan 12, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    Not a lot of people have been in Carmelo Anthony’s shoes — a legitimate NBA superstar pushing his way to a new team at the peak of his career. One guy who did — LeBron James. Anthony told the media Wednesday he and LeBron have spoken recently, but added the situations are very different (via…

  10. Erik Spoelstra says Heat don’t need to make trades

    Jan 12, 2011, 12:52 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    It’s the time of year when a young fan’s fancy turns to trades… but coach Erik Spoelstra says Heat fans shouldn’t bother. Sounding like a guy whose team has won 21 of 22, Spoelstra said the Heat don’t need to make any trades right now, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. “(Pat Riley)…

  11. LeBron James calls Cleveland 55-point loss “karma”

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:10 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    It was a historic, epic loss by the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night. They didn’t just lose to the Lakers, they were an embarrassment. James Naismith was rolling over in his grave. The final score, 112-57, had people shaking their heads. Except for LeBron James, who tweeted this late Tuesday night: Crazy. Karma is a b****..…

  12. LeBron James at center? Get used to it.

    Jan 11, 2011, 12:01 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    LeBron James has played plenty of power forward over the years. He’s played point guard (or de facto point guard, anyway), shooting guard and small forward, too. He’s done everything. Except play center. That was until Sunday, when he played it late in the Heat’s overtime victory against the Trail Blazers — and Miami outscored…

  13. Spoelstra: The Heat have “not shown greatness yet”

    Jan 10, 2011, 5:37 PM EST

    Spoelstra_cringe

    The Miami Heat have been pretty good recently. They’re 30-9, they’ve lost one game since November 27th, they have two of the top three players in PER, they’re a top-three team in both offensive and defensive efficiency, and they are winning games by an average of 9.5 points a night. Oh, and they’re a few…

  14. LeBron James: “I’ve kind of accepted this villain role”

    Jan 10, 2011, 9:37 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Portland Trail Blazers

    LeBron James was the dominant force on the court as the Heat beat the Trail Blazers Sunday in Portland. It was the kind of performance — 44 points total, 19 in the final three minutes of regulation and overtime, plus 13 rebounds — that we saw a lot of when James was a Cavalier. Except…

  15. Who takes the last shot for Miami? Friday it was Dwyane Wade.

    Jan 8, 2011, 5:01 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    It was a question before the team even went to training camp: In a close end-of-game scenario, who takes the last shot for the Miami Heat? This season, with so many blowout wins, there have been few chances to see how this team will deal with end-of-game scenarios. But Friday night in Milwaukee the Heat…

  16. David Stern doesn’t like people booing LeBron

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:15 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Every time he steps on the court in a road arena, LeBron James hears boos. That was to be expected in Cleveland. Everyone knew it was coming in cities such as New York where the fans wanted him and he chose to take his talents elsewhere. But it has become more than that — James…

  17. Paul Silas says LeBron treated Cavaliers just like teams treat players

    Jan 4, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Cavaliers v Wizards

    Among the seemingly innumerable things LeBron James has been criticized for — from the legitimate to the ludicrous — was the complaint that he needed to let Cleveland know much farther in advance he was gone. If he was not coming back, he had an obligation to let them know so they could get something…

  18. Heat players nickname themselves “The Heatles”

    Jan 4, 2011, 8:40 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Well, this should be gasoline on the fire that is people thinking the Miami Heat’s egos are running amok. During his postgame comments Monday night (via the Miami Herald), LeBron joked that the Heat call themselves “The Heatles” because they sell out every stadium they tour on the road. (The Heatles is a not-so-subtle Beatles…

  19. LeBron James, Courtney Lee with last night’s best dunks

    Jan 4, 2011, 8:11 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    Why choose just one? There are no rules that say there can only be one dunk of the night on this blog. Especially since we’re making up the rules as we go. In that spirit we give you LeBron James on the breakaway against the Bobcats. By the way, this was not the play where…

  20. LeBron’s birthday cake could feed a small country

    Jan 3, 2011, 12:58 PM EST

    LeBrons-Birthday-Cake

    LeBron James turned 26 last week and there was a big party… to which we were not invited. It’s okay, I was busy anyway. Big plans. We’re sure it was a quiet, mild affair with dinner at trendy STK followed by drinks at Coco Deville next door (according to Dime). We don’t have any details…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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).…
