LeBron James

  1. Chris Bosh still developing documentary

    Jul 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    You’d think he would have noticed everything. The monumental backlash to “The Decision.” The massive criticism for Wade even mentioning 9/11. The plummeting Q ratings. You’d think Chris Bosh would have noticed that all the attention and self-aggrandizement the Big 3 in Miami have brought on themselves has been too much and they need to…

  2. Report: Chris Paul denies LRMR connection

    Jul 24, 2010, 8:33 AM EST

    You remember when we finally got through “The Decision” and we were so excited because we wouldn’t have to talk about LeBron for a while? Well, Chris Paul has come in and hijacked our summer away from us. Howard Beck of the New York Times, that fancy inkrag up New York way brings us news…

  3. Just in case you were curious, Stephon Marbury is still completely batty

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:07 PM EST

    Whether in the All-Star game, on the bench, in a box, or in China, nothing seems to change with Stephon Marbury. He is who he’s always been, and that’s why no one should be all that surprised that when given the opportunity to be a part of the championship-favorite Miami Heat for the coming season,…

  4. Kevin Durant on announcing his deal on twitter: What did you expect?

    Jul 23, 2010, 2:00 PM EST

    It wasn’t what Kevin Durant did this summer that was a surprise. Everybody knew Oklahoma City was going to offer him a max extension, and everybody knew he was going to sign it. What made it news was how it was handled was such a contrast to the other big free agent moves this summer.…

  5. Don't cry over LeBron, Cleveland, Christian Eyenga is here to dry your tears

    Jul 23, 2010, 1:25 PM EST

    I don’t know if you heard, but LeBron James recently left the Cleveland Cavaliers, instantly demoting the franchise from perennial contender to — at best — middle-of-the-pack sideshow. But never fear, Clevelanders — the Cavs have signed the 30th pick in the 2009 draft, Christian Eyenga, to a two-year deal (with team options in the…

  6. Dwyane Wade on Jimmy Kimmel: LeBron owes Wade a few dinners

    Jul 23, 2010, 12:23 PM EST

    My favorite part of this two-part interview: Wade saying he gets texts from players saying they want to come to Miami, but they forget to leave their name. Fun interview, in large part because Kimmel just crushes it.

  7. Chris Paul is simply the latest consumer of the NBA arms race that started in Boston

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    In 2007, the Spurs won their fourth title inside of a decade. They defeated a LeBron James-led Cavs team that featured Sasha Pavlovic as the fifth-leading scorer on the team. The arguable second-best team was the Phoenix Suns who would immediately begin a spiral based off of the hyper-reactive initial moves of Steve Kerr. The…

  8. LeBron, Wade and Bosh could be worth $1 billion to South Florida

    Jul 22, 2010, 3:21 PM EST

    Go ahead and mock LeBron for taking the easy way out in Miami. Make the SuperFriends your most hated team. They don’t care, and the Miami Heat don’t care. Because money talks. The Lakers had (still hold?) the trophy for most hated team in the league, and they generate more money than any team in…

  9. Yes Magic, you would team up with other superstars. In fact you did.

    Jul 22, 2010, 10:13 AM EST

    Magic Johnson has done what we all do — we remember ourselves as better and more noble than we really were. We rewrite our personal histories to fit those better selves. Remember how Magic Johnson agreed with Michael Jordan? How he said the two would never have teamed up with other superstars because they were…

  10. Derrick Rose gets his wish, he is now the face of the Bulls

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:25 PM EST

    There was talk that one reason LeBron James soured on Chicago as the place he would be taking his talents was the shadow cast by Michael Jordan. Let’s hope that was not the case, because great players embrace the challenge of living up to the past of a legendary franchise (see Kevin Garnett and Kobe…

  11. Steve Carell 's "decision" is Outback Steak House; Chili's responds with Comic Sans letter.

    Jul 21, 2010, 2:27 PM EST

    Reportedly, the folks at ESPN wanted LeBron James to hold off on his decision until the day of the ESPY’s, so that one ego-stroking event could lead into another. Fortunately for all of us, the realities of the marketplace made that impossible. The ESPY’s had to settle for parody — Steve Carell’s decision to take…

  12. Cleveland to LeBron: "It's not us, it's you"

    Jul 21, 2010, 12:44 PM EST

    The fine folks at BreakupwithLeBron.com put that together (via Dime Magazine). They are the people also putting together the donation locations where Clevelanders can drop off their LeBron gear and it will be donated to the homeless in Miami.  Check out the site, even buy one of the “It’s not us, it’s you” shirts. Then…

  13. Kobe Bryant is America's most popular athlete. Didn't see that coming, did you?

    Jul 21, 2010, 9:40 AM EST

    Five years ago, Kobe Bryant may have been America’s most loathed athlete. Calling his career as an endorser “washed up” would have been about the nicest way of putting things one could have. Now, he is America’s most popular athlete. According to a poll by Harris Interactive, Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods are tied as…

  14. Magic agrees with Jordan: 'That's not what we were about'

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:20 PM EST

    Times are different. LeBron is teaming up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Michael Jordan said the other day he wouldn’t have done that, he wanted to beat Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, not partner with them. Not everyone — including our own Ira Winderman — buys that. But Magic Johnson said he agrees with…

  15. Planet LeBron is a figment of your imagination

    Jul 20, 2010, 9:52 PM EST

    Hey, remember that house with the beachfront and the gym in the bedroom and the tennis court for the guest house that LeBron James was going to buy? Yeah, not so much. Ira Winderman (our boy) has checked with the owner of the house that he was supposedly buying and he says no-go. `There’s been…

  16. Lil' Wayne says LeBron in Miami means Tha Block Is Hot

    Jul 20, 2010, 4:31 PM EST

    Lil’ Wayne knows basketball. Lil’ Wayne isn’t like everybody else. So it shouldn’t be a shock his take on the LeBron James differs from plenty of people out there, but is also pretty smart. From Wayne’s Website (via SLAM): Oh Lebron! The recent move by the Miami Heat confirms that we will someday soon have…

  17. Chris Bosh is unnoticed no more — and loving it

    Jul 20, 2010, 12:53 PM EST

    See Chris Bosh on E! getting interviewed. See Chris Bosh as trendy Los Angeles restaurant. See Chris Bosh at the Hollywood premiere of “Inception.” See Chris Bosh enjoying the spotlight. LeBron James has been in the middle of it since he was a high school sophomore. Dwyane Wade led a team to a title in…

  18. Members of Team USA continue to drop like flies, Amar'e Stoudemire now doubtful for World Championships

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:26 AM EST

    When LeBron James decided he was too cool to play for Team USA this summer, it seemed inevitable that all the cool kids would follow suit. Though guys like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Carmelo Anthony may have been leaders on their own clubs, during the summer all things go through LeBron. Yet Team USA’s…

  19. Winderman: Jordan would have called Magic and Bird — he wanted to win

    Jul 19, 2010, 1:28 PM EST

      When did Michael Jordan become like our dads? When did he start with the, “Well, back in my day…” Because if he truly is going to thrive as a franchise owner with the Charlotte Bobcats, then perhaps there is a need to recognize he is not back in his day, and that the world…

  20. Mario Chalmers, the Miami Heat point guard job is yours. Don't screw it up.

    Jul 19, 2010, 9:41 AM EST

    Mario Chalmers is a nice backup point guard. Yes, his shooting regressed his second year in the league, and yes he turns the ball over more than you’d like. But he’s a nice player. And because he’s on a cheap rookie contract, he He’s your new Miami Heat starting point guard. When you hear people…

  21. Barkley is still Barkley. Oh, and he didn't like the LeBron circus

    Jul 18, 2010, 11:57 PM EST

      Charles Barkley, talking LeBron. And the fact he was golfing left handed this week.

  22. Jordan wouldn't have called up Bird, Magic to be teammates, he wanted to beat them

    Jul 18, 2010, 11:12 PM EST

      Michael Jordan is still a competitor. Don’t get him wrong, he’d like the money the big free agents are getting now. But he says he wouldn’t have called up Larry Bird or Magic Johnson and wanted to team up. “I wanted to beat those guys.” Times are different now. For better or for worse,…

  23. Miami signs James Jones, really wants to shoot threes

    Jul 18, 2010, 3:36 PM EST

    The Miami Heat needed to fill out their roster. And they’ve certainly done so decently. Today, our own Ira Winderman clues us in that the Heat have re-signed veteran wing and three-point specialist James Jones. Jones is a three point dagger man, but after re-signing with the Heat two years ago, he’s been largely marginal.…

  24. Report: LeBron James' new house is basically a small planet

    Jul 18, 2010, 1:41 PM EST

    A popular joke among NBA folks is that with all the angst LeBron James has created among people this summer, he’ll have to comfort himself on his gigantic bed of money. And according to Life and Style Magazine via AOL FanHouse, that bed of money will have quite a bit of room for a chair…

  25. Report: If LeBron's friends get jobs with the Heat, the NBA may investigate

    Jul 17, 2010, 12:30 PM EST

    In Cleveland, LeBron’s posse had the run of the place. They were VIPs in the arena and in the city. Some of his friends even got jobs within the Cleveland organization. It is rumored that one of the things that really hurt Chicago in talks with LeBron James was a clear line in the sand…
