LeBron James

  1. LeBron Biographer Buzz Bissinger says he is gone from Cleveland, title or not

    May 11, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    Before we get into this story, let us bask in the glory of Buzz Bissinger being interviewed by one blog, then that story being reported on another blog. Oh, the cruelty. Oh, the journalistic dishonesty. On to our story. Bissinger has a book to sell, LeBron’s Dream Team, the book he co-authored with James about…

  2. NBA Playoffs, Cavaliers Celtics Game 5: Rajon Rondo is going to think this is a hockey game

    May 11, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    We don’t know much about what the Cleveland Cavaliers have planned to stop the Rajon Rondo layup parade — none of their key players have spoken to the media for a couple days. Mike Brown has chosen not to tell the national media the details of his plans. Smart man. But we can infer, from…

  3. Knicks fans only hope: Become Celtics fans for a night

    May 11, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    Intellectually, Knicks fans know LeBron James is not leaving Cleveland to help rebuild New York. He just applied to change his number next year — something he only needed to do if he stayed in Cleveland. New Yorkers’ heads tell them all hope is lost, despite the fact the Knicks hired a full time guy…

  4. Rajon Rondo avoids being another LeBron James highlight, makes his own

    May 10, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    In the first game of the season, way back in October, Rajon Rondo had what looked like a breakaway layup, but instead it became a highlight chasedown block by LeBron James, who caught up with him and swatted it off the backboard. Fool me once… In the same situation in Game 4 Sunday, Rondo made…

  5. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 4: Rajon Rondo puts on a show while LeBron James doth defer too much

    May 9, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    We finally got a close one. And the Celtics finally have a hero besides Rajon Rondo. Tony Allen came in and played a huge game for the Celtics, who evened the series at 2-2 after a 97-87 win in Boston. Allen had 18 points off the bench and finished consistently off Rajon Rondo’s drive and…

  6. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 4: The beginning of the end or the end of the beginning

    May 9, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Look, there’s two ways this can go. If the Cavs come out and blow doors off hinges and win this game, the series is essentially over. Boston’s veteran crew knows better than to waste valuable vacation days, no matter what cliches they throw out about taking it one game at a time. or, Boston can…

  7. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 3: Witness the power of this fully operational elbow

    May 7, 2010, 9:18 PM EDT

    The pendulum swings both ways. Tonight, LeBron James swung it through the Celtics’ fortress walls and left their homecourt advantage in ruins. James took over in a way we haven’t seen, maybe since his Game 5 performance against the Pistons in 07, completely dominating at both ends of the floor while getting his teammates involved.…

  8. John Wall, Evan Turner show everyone doesn't want to be like LeBron

    May 7, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    In the 1990s, Michael Jordan ruled on the court, his agent David Falk ruled off it. Falk had around 40 clients and those included most of the big names of the decade, guys like Patrick Ewing and Alonzo Mourning. He bullied around the Players Association in the 1995 lockout, and was involved behind the scenes…

  9. Bill Walton: LeBron James should play for free

    May 7, 2010, 10:35 AM EDT

    I’ve missed Bill Walton. He was a larger-than-life person and personality, a great player and a broadcaster who made the game fun with hyperbole. He rubbed some people the wrong way — I’ll admit he annoyed me at times — but he always a reminder that this is a game and supposed to be fun.…

  10. David Lee would like to stay in New York, but really would like to get paid

    May 6, 2010, 5:55 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh has done a good job cleaning up the dung pile — and an expensive one at that — of a roster he was left with. New York is not a city renowned for patience, but it was warranted in this case as there was a lot of shoveling to do. Fans understood that.…

  11. Nobody is healthy, everybody going to play in Cavaliers/Celtics Game 3

    May 6, 2010, 3:51 PM EDT

    LeBron James’ elbow. Kevin Garnett’s foot. Anderson Varejao’s back. Kendrick Perkins knee. Four injuries, one report: They practiced today and are all expected to play on Friday night in the big game three between Boston and Cleveland. See, that wasn’t so hard. Brian Windhorst handled the whole thing on twitter. If this were the regular…

  12. Kevin Durant joins the big time, named to All-NBA First Team

    May 6, 2010, 2:43 PM EDT

    This season at a Clippers/Thunder game, my media row seat was next to two advanced scouts checking out the Thunder for upcoming games for their teams. Three times during the game, Kevin Durant did something that had these scouts — jaded guys who have seen more basketball than you and I ever will — look…

  13. Man wrongly imprisoned for 29 years to sit courtside for Cavaliers/Celtics Game 5

    May 6, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    I can’t imagine what it would be like. I doubt, — no, I know I couldn’t handle spending 29 years in prison for a crime I didn’t commit with the grace that Ray Towler did. He was happy upon his release. He was accused of a heinous crime (raping a 12- and 13-year-old) only to…

  14. NBA All-Defense Team filled with playoff participants. Coincidence?

    May 5, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Defense wins championships. Or, at least you gets you into the playoffs. That’s the one easy takeaway from the announcement of the NBA All-Defensive teams. There are no shocks on here, everyone belongs, which is what you get when the coaches vote and not media members paid by teams who have their own agendas. Of…

  15. LeBron's elbow to have another MRI, tweet about it

    May 5, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    LeBron James’ is having a second MRI on his elbow, and there is nothing funny about that. Unless you’re reading LeBron’s elbow’s twitter account. Seriously. First the news part of this post, because how can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat? LeBron is having a second MRI on his elbow today…

  16. Quote of the day, where Bird is high on LeBron

    May 4, 2010, 2:56 PM EDT

    “He’s one guy in the league that I think he’ll probably be better than all of us when it’s all said and done.” –Larry Bird, Celtics legend and current Pacers president, on LeBron James, as told to NBA.com.

  17. Kobe vs. LeBron: The rap references mix

    May 4, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are not basketball players, they are cultural icons. They are brands. They are images. And they referenced in rap and hip-hop as much as the chronic. Well, not that much, but a lot. But who has the better references? Kobe with Lil Wayne? LeBron with Jay-Z? Complex put a list…

  18. Cavaliers are not happy, not panicked either

    May 4, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    That was an old fashioned ass-kicking the Celtics put on the Cavaliers last night. Not shockingly, the Celtics players were pretty happy, but get a minute in and you will see one ticked off Cavaliers coach Mike Brown. He should be, his team played with no desire. LeBron James admits it, but isn’t nearly as…

  19. David Stern on LeBron: "Hopefully, he'll stay."

    May 4, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    I don’t know if you’ve heard this, but LeBron James can be a free agent this summer. No, really. He can be. The media is ignoring this little story, but it is true. (Before you write something in the comments, read that paragraph again in a sarcastic voice.) Since everyone else in America had weighed…

  20. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 2: Celtics attempt to charge the gates once more

    May 3, 2010, 6:19 PM EDT

    Celtics fans: “Okay, guys, just do what you did in the first half of Game 1, but for the WHOLE GAME THIS TIME. Got it?Ready…break!” Cavs fans: “Let’s not toy with them this time, okay guys?” The Cavs came out in the first half of Game 1 and looked shellshocked. They had no answers for…

  21. LeBron James home next season: Place your bets

    May 3, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Part of the beauty of society/crumbling of our nation’s moral fiber (take your pick) is that you can bet on just about anything. Just a few mouse clicks and you can bet anything from presidential elections to the Oscars. Oh, and where LeBron James will suit up next year. Bodog.com put up the numbers, and…

  22. LeBron James accepts his MVP award

    May 3, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    A whole bunch of people showed up to watch LeBron James formally accept his MVP award. And he gave a pretty good speech. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.  

  23. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 1: Elbow this

    May 1, 2010, 10:41 PM EDT

    Everything was going so well for Boston. Shaq missing chippies. Rajon Rondo dominating. Kendrick Perkins protecting inside. Kevin Garnett playing as well as he has this season. A lead, in Cleveland, and just a quarter and a half to close. Plus, LeBron’s elbow was making him timid. Elbow this. (Click here to see PBT’s first…

  24. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 1 Halftime: Celtics have all the answers so far

    May 1, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    For all the improvements the Cavs were supposed to have made, in Game 1, the Celtics looked like they had all the answers. The Celtics lead 54-43 at the half, Rajon Rondo has 19 points and 8 assists, LeBron James looks hurt and the Cavs look lost. The Cavs worked to get inside position on…

  25. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 1: The rematch begins

    May 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s right that it should go this way. These two never faced one another last year, and now that the Celtics are at full strength and the Cavaliers are ruling the roost, we need to settle this. The 2008 Champions, seeking to regain what they feel is their rightful title. And the Cavaliers, aiming to…
