LeBron James

  1. LeBron James, Daniel Gibson still BFFs, or something

    Dec 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    After the Heat were done wiping the floor with the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night, some things were said. Daniel Gibson used to be tight with LeBron James but he said some things afterwards that made it sound like they wouldn’t be sharing any text messages about the latest episode of Glee, or whatever it is…

  2. LeBron, Cavaliers in-game talk not so friendly

    Dec 3, 2010, 8:51 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    A chorus of people — led by Charles Barkley — questioned what looked like some friendly banter between the LeBron James and the Cavaliers bench Thursday night. For the most part, people have questioned how the Cavs could joke around with the guy kicking their, um, behind. But apparently it wasn’t that friendly. As Daniel…

  3. Cavs fans had nothing on fans in Greece, just ask Josh Childress

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:33 PM EST

    There was a lot of anger in Cleveland last night, a lot of “a—hole” chants and a handful of people tossed from the building. It reminded the Suns Josh Childress of Greece (where he played the last two seasons). Well, not really, the Cavaliers fans were not angry enough and did not throw explosives or…

  4. Video: LeBron’s post-game press conference

    James_tired

    Through it all, LeBron James was the one with the cool head, the guy who handled it all pretty well. That includes his post-game press conference, which you can see here. His one regret in a few years from Thursday night? That jacket. It is not going to age well.

  5. With handful of exceptions, Cavaliers fans well behaved for Heat game

    Dec 3, 2010, 8:19 AM EST

    LeBron James

    When the Heat first ran out on the court for warmups Thursday night, one guy came up in LeBron James face. He was yelling and pointing — and quickly security was on him. He was ejected. That man was the exception to the rule. By and large Cavaliers fans wanted to boo and vent —…

  6. Video: LeBron’s postgame comments

    Dec 3, 2010, 1:35 AM EST

    LeBron James

    Minutes after the Cavaliers were done throttling the Cleveland Cavaliers in LeBron Jame’s homecoming, James spoke to TNT’s Craig Sager and his relatively mild suit this time around. You can see the video below. At one point James said he would “just try to continue the greatness for myself here in Miami and just try…

  7. Game of the night: LeBron makes his point, the Heat do not

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:41 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One thing we knew going into this game was the Heat were capable of just blowing out bad teams — 7 of their 11 wins had come by double digits over sub-.500 teams. Make that 8 of 12. For all the hype about the Cleveland fans getting to vent their anger at LeBron — and…

  8. Signs in Cleveland Tonight: No LeBron Jerseys

    Dec 2, 2010, 7:12 PM EST

    The photo you see to the right is of one of the signs at the bar Harry Buffalo in Cleveland, putting up a dress code for tonight and giving you an idea of the mood in town. As you can see, this is no Indians game, you can’t bring your LeBron James Heat jersey in.…

  9. Carlos Boozer, no stranger to deserting Cleveland, empathizes with LeBron

    Dec 2, 2010, 6:17 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer

    Once upon a time, a LeBron James sidekick had delusions of grandeur. He saw a coin gleaming out of the corner of his eye, and turned his verbal commitment to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers into mere words. It’s been five years since Carlos Boozer walked out on the Cavs, but if anyone can even…

  10. James, Heat players trying to prepare for Cleveland like every other game

    Dec 2, 2010, 5:21 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    It’s going to be different. Everyone knows tonight’s Miami Heat/Cleveland Cavaliers game is going to be emotional and raucous. But a few hours before tip off, Heat players told FanHouse they were feeling comfortable and just trying to treat this like any other basketball game. LeBron James said the game itself might be a refuge.…

  11. LeBron returns to Cleveland, and nobody will leave feeling like a winner

    Dec 2, 2010, 4:08 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Some team is going to win a basketball game tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. But is anybody going to walk out of the building tonight in Cleveland feeling like a winner? Feeling happy? When emotions are this intense, this raw, is that really even possible? Can anything — even a win by the Cavaliers —…

  12. Security in Cleveland tonight “not a police state”

    Dec 2, 2010, 11:19 AM EST

    674282917

    There is a fair amount of security at every NBA game — men who sit behind the team benches watching the crowd, for example — but it’s not overwhelming. Like every professional sporting event that is not a Raiders game, there is kind of a belief that fans are not there cause harm to players…

  13. LeBron, Heat players respond to Gilbert’s tampering charge

    Dec 2, 2010, 10:18 AM EST

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert has allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to a Midwestern law firm to put together a tampering case with evidence against the Miami Heat and how they lured LeBron James from Cleveland to South Beach. What does LeBron think about that? Not much, he told FanHouse on the eve of…

  14. Report: Cavaliers hire team of attorneys to build LeBron tampering case against Heat

    Dec 1, 2010, 7:13 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    So Dan Gilbert is over LeBron leaving? Riiiiiight. The Cleveland Cavaliers owner has spent several hundred thousand dollars to pay a team of attorneys to build a tampering case against the Heat that he can then present to the NBA, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The NBA won’t launch an investigation into a tampering…

  15. Winderman: Cleveland an opportunity for Heat to show heart

    Dec 1, 2010, 2:22 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    For a moment, let’s move past the powder, the banned T-shirts, the extra security. Instead, let’s move into the moment itself, the heated, contentious atmosphere that will greet the Miami Heat during its Thursday visit to Quicken Loans Arena. It will be as close as the NBA gets to playoffs in early December. And it’s…

  16. Blake Griffin has made the Clippers (yes, those Clippers) trendy

    Dec 1, 2010, 1:52 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    A couple weeks ago, Denver’s J.R. Smith popped up on twitter and asked if Blake Griffin was playing that night because he wanted to watch. He’s not alone — players around NBA locker rooms are talking about Griffin with an awe of his athleticism usually reserved for guys named LeBron. And count LeBron James in…

  17. Poll: How will Cleveland fans react to LeBron James Thursday?

    Dec 1, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    jamespreseason

    The anger in the building will be palpable, and when he does the pregame powder toss LeBron James better hope Cleveland fans are mature and aren’t tossing things at him. You know, mature like Albert Belle. There are campaigns to laugh at LeBron, to come up with chants or more mature responses. But it remains…

  18. Odds better James gets in fight with Cleveland fan than passes on powder toss

    Dec 1, 2010, 12:18 PM EST

    LeBron James

    Gambling is bad, we certainly would never encourage it. You should not set up an offshore account and bet on unpredictable sporting events. You should definitely not take the Texans and the eight points against the Eagles on Thursday. This is strictly for entertainment. That said, the proposition bets posted by Bodog.com on LeBron James’…

  19. Quote of the Day: Dan Gilbert is over LeBron. He means it. Really.

    Dec 1, 2010, 9:38 AM EST

    Image (1) dgilbert-thumb-250x140-15682.jpg for post 3091

    “I’m over it. I really am. That’s the truth,” he said. “I let it all out in about 24 hours. I just think we have such a great core and a great coaching staff. We have a lot of opportunities with the trade exception and the draft. I feel good about this team.” —Cavaliers owner…

  20. Albert Belle tells Clevelanders to be nice to LeBron

    Dec 1, 2010, 8:10 AM EST

    Albert Belle

    Albert Belle is now the voice of reason. Which also means the end times are upon us, so prepare yourself. Belle — the ill-tempered power hitter for the Indians who left for a big contract, and who knows what it is like to be booed by Clevelanders — is hoping everyone acts like adults when…

  21. Video: LeBron calls return to Cleveland “emotional”

    Nov 30, 2010, 7:29 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James knows he is in for a tough night Thursday, when he and the Heat come to Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers. It will be emotional — with many of those emotions being negative ones directed at LeBron by fans. But this was what he considered his home (yes, Akron, we know, but…

  22. Outlining the damning problems of the Heat’s offense

    Nov 30, 2010, 6:34 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    This season has gone pretty well for the Miami Heat, don’tcha think? They’re ranked seventh in the league in offensive efficiency, and sixth in the league in defensive efficiency. Aside from offensive rebounding rate, they rank in the top 13 teams in each of the offensive and defensive “four factors” (effective field goal percentage, effective…

  23. Rank your MVP candidates

    Nov 30, 2010, 6:13 PM EST

    Durant_Westbrook

    Okay, you’ve had almost 20 games now, you should have some favorites for Most Valuable Player now, right? Kevin Durant came in as the preseason favorite for many, but his teammate Russell Westbrook has been better so far… so why not Westbrook? Or how about Chris Paul? Want to go with the old classics of…

  24. Big Z is coming home to Cleveland, too. Not sure what to expect.

    Nov 30, 2010, 4:50 PM EST

    Image (1) ilgauskas_return-thumb-250x324-8079.jpg for post 1053

    One of the legendary names of Cavaliers basketball, a guy who was part of the fabric of the community, is coming to town for the first time in another jersey on Thursday. And he’s not sure what the reception will be. No, not that guy. We’re talking about Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Big Z spent a dozen…

  25. Will LeBron do the powder toss in Cleveland Thursday? “Probably.”

    Nov 30, 2010, 4:10 PM EST

    James_chalk

    UPDATE 4:11 pm: Expanding on his thoughts to our own Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel (via twitter), James said he probably will do the chalk toss. “I probably will. That’s a ritual for myself.” 2: 21 pm: It’s LeBron James’ iconic signature — throwing the powdered rosin into the air by the scorer’s table…
