LeBron James

  1. Heat out-star Thunder as Eddie House does a dance

    Jan 30, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    In a game that was pretty fantastic from start to finish, the Miami Heat closed out the Thunder with a combination of star power and savvy play. Dwyane Wade was brilliant with 30 points and 9 rebounds (but also 9 turnovers), and LeBron James made the play that encapsulates his career. With the clock winding…

  2. MRI reveals elbow bruise for Dwyane Wade, Wade listed as day-to-day

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    UPDATE SATURDAY 4:50 p.m. EST: Heat fans, you can exhale. An MRI came back negative for Wade’s elbow, and he’s listed as day-to-day. What that means for the Heat’s game against the Thunder Sunday is anyone’s guess, but at least it’s not time for abject panic.   So Dwyane Wade was ruled out of Friday…

  3. Dunk of the Night: Turns out that LeBron guy is pretty athletic

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The pace of the Knicks game against the small ball Heat was not as fast as you’d think (90 possessions, which is 6.6 possessions slower than the average Knicks game and even one slower than the average Heat game). Particularly in the fourth quarter. But when the teams did get out and run we got…

  4. NBA All-Star Game voting shows it’s time to change the ballot

    Jan 27, 2011, 11:57 PM EDT

    2010 NBA All Star Game

    You should pat yourself on your back. Which come to think of it is pretty hard and can lead to shoulder dislocation, so maybe get a friend to do it for you. But you deserve it. You NBA fans pretty much nailed it in voting for the NBA All-Star game starters. Usually right after the…

  5. NBA All-Star Game starters named. Fans got 9 out of 10 right.

    Jan 27, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans, you’ll get who you ask for. Well, nine out of 10 anyway. There were no surprises as the NBA All-Star Game starters were announced live on TNT Thursday night. The Eastern Conference starters are: Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic, center): He’s the best center in the game, averaging 22 points and 13.4 points per…

  6. Wade plans to wear dark goggles to reduce migraines, league officials say otherwise

    Jan 27, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    UPDATE (7:15 PM EST): It appears Wade won’t be wearing dark glasses after all. According to the Associated Press, the goggles Wade was planning to wear have been deemed a “competitive advantage” by the league office, and will not be allowed for tonight’s game. I don’t see how wearing sunglasses at night really tips the…

  7. LeBron, Wade love Madison Square Garden (just not enough to sign with the Knicks, apparently)

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Madison Square Garden remains one of the iconic buildings in the NBA. It’s New York — Concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Visitors get pumped up to play there — which for a long time meant guys like Kobe Bryant were going to drop a big number on the hapless Knicks. The Knicks are…

  8. Stoudemire: “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat”

    Jan 27, 2011, 9:45 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The New York Knicks have lost both meetings with the Miami Heat this season and come into Thursday’s showdown just 3-7 in their last 10 overall. But you have to like this about Amar’e Stoudemire — he is defiant (as reported by ESPN New York). “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat.” The Heat squad that…

  9. Sorry, New York, but Stoudemire is no MVP. Rose either.

    Jan 26, 2011, 3:10 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    We all want to be smart, clever, cutting edge. Nobody wants to give the tired, same old answer. Even if it’s the right one. Ask “experts” and fans who the best player in the NBA is and they’ll talk about how Player X is better than LeBron James. Kobe has more rings and finishes better,…

  10. Bosh has high ankle sprain, could miss another week, more

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not the best player on the Miami Heat. He may be the most indispensable — with Udonis Haslem out, the drop off among bigs after Bosh is dramatic. They have nobody else who comes close to bringing what Bosh brings to the table. And Bosh is going to be out a little…

  11. Mario Chalmers takes over as Heat starting point guard

    Jan 24, 2011, 4:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    Carlos Arroyo is out as the Heat’s starting point guard. Mario Chalmers is in. But it really doesn’t make that big a difference. These two remain interchangeable parts used depending on the situation. And there is a good chance next season it will be someone entirely new at the point in Miami. The fantastic Kevin…

  12. Erik Spoelstra explains LeBron and Wade in pie charts

    Jan 24, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Erik Spoelstra is a detail guy. The pregame whiteboard in the Heat locker room is likely the most detailed, organized one in the league — two columns of diagrammed favorite plays of the opponents, a column of sets the Heat want to run, reminders of the night’s focus on offense and defense down the middle.…

  13. Bosh out, Wade questionable as Miami tries to stop skid

    Jan 22, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    The Heat are now on a four game losing streak, and the easy answer is injury, which has kept at least one of the Triad out since their first loss of this streak against the… ahem… Clippers. And against Toronto in Miami this evening, it would appear they’re going to be short at least one…

  14. Are we going to see LeBron’s post-up game?

    Jan 21, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    At 6-9 and an estimated 270 pounds, LeBron James is the same size as Blake Griffin and Karl Malone. He usually has at least 30 or 40 pounds on anybody who guards him. He is one of the strongest players in the league, and has no problem finishing inside with either hand. All of those…

  15. Kobe Bryant on pace to set record: Most missed field goals

    Jan 20, 2011, 10:58 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    In the next couple of years Kobe Bryant is going to pass another legendary Celtic in the record book. But not in a good way. Kobe Bryant is on pace to break the record for most missed shots in a career, according to some fun research by John Hollinger at ESPN (a post behind the…

  16. Lil’ Wayne smacks LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Jan 19, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    Rapper Lil’ Wayne is one of the handful of those lucky Americans who can afford courtside NBA seats — thank you very much “Lollipop.” But when you’re paying for those seats, say to see the Miami Heat take on the New Orleans Hornets, you expect a little respect. Especially when everyone else was smacking LeBron…

  17. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  18. ‘Melo: “I would never go about it the way LeBron did”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:54 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may not be handling his departure from Denver perfectly, but after watching what LeBron James did last summer leaving Cleveland Anthony told Sports Illustrated he learned some lessons. “I would never go about it the way LeBron did it,” the Denver Nuggets’ three-time All-Star forward told Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Ian Thomsen… “If…

  19. The LeBrons are back in coming animated series for Web

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:50 AM EDT

    the_lebrons_family

    It seems LeBron James is better known for the things around him off the court — like Nike’s ad campaigns — than for what he has accomplished on it so far. For example, remember “The LeBrons?” The four versions of LeBron — dapper business LeBron, athlete LeBron, young LeBron and old, curmudgeonly LeBron — from…

  20. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  21. LeBron sits out against Bulls Saturday night

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    UPDATE 7:35 pm: It’s official, LeBron is out for a second straight game due to his sprained ankle suffered against the Clippers last Wednesday night. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, Miami is expected to be cautious during the regular season when it comes to injuries with its big three. It just puts more on…

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

    Jan 15, 2011, 4:35 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    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…

  24. LeBron out Thursday against Nuggets due to ankle sprain

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:20 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    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…
