LeBron James

  1. Clippers owner Sterling remains confused why his team doesn't win, attract big names

    Aug 17, 2010, 2:26 PM EST

    It’s easy to go for the easy joke when talking about Donald Sterling, owner of the Clippers. Too easy. The snark almost writes itself. And we do love our snark in these parts. But what’s genuinely amazing about interviews with him is how disconnected from the reality on the ground he seems to be. His…

  2. LeBron James talking clothes. But it's about the person that's in them.

    Aug 17, 2010, 12:33 PM EST

    We talked about GQ publishing an in depth piece on the Summer of LeBron in its September issue, and as this is a basketball blog we talked about the basketball stuff. But as they are GQ, they talk about the clothes stuff, too. As a blogger, I am in no position to comment on fashion…

  3. LeBron may have chosen Miami to recreate high school. But he has no regrets.

    Aug 17, 2010, 11:19 AM EST

    Regrets? Nope. LeBron James is chronicled in the latest issue of GQ, by author J.R. Moehringer, who had the seats closest to ringside for the circus that was the Summer of LeBron. He has a lot of insights, he tries to answer the hardest questions. Like, what would LeBron change if he had it to…

  4. Carmelo Anthony needs to figure out then announce his intentions, whatever they are

    Aug 17, 2010, 10:20 AM EST

    This is where we have come to — the Denver Nuggets and team fans not wanting to get “LeBron’d.” It’s the result of a few factors: the free agency circus of this summer, the fact that Carmelo Anthony has not yet signed an extension with the Nuggets, and a ton of people willing to speculate.…

  5. Carmelo Anthony plans on taking his sweet time with extension decision

    Aug 15, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony seems pretty comfortable stepping into LeBron James’ shoes. Last season, in every city he traveled to, James got the question “can you picture yourself playing in X?” He tried to shut the speculation down, he stopped talking about his contract issue, he said he had thought about playing everywhere. But every stop of…

  6. Hall of Famers not giving Heat the title. Yet.

    Aug 13, 2010, 8:39 PM EST

    The Miami Heat are going to be very good. Nobody questions that. This team is going to win a lot of game this year. Put LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team and you’re going to get that. A title… not so fast. Hall of Famers in Springfield, Mass., for the induction…

  7. Barkley isn't done taking shots at LeBron, says he has to win multiple titles

    Aug 13, 2010, 3:59 PM EST

    Yesterday Charles Barkley called LeBron James a punk for daring to do what Barkley never did and team up with other superstars to get a ring. Because I guess never reaching your goal but falling short by yourself is noble. Whatever. Barkley’s not done, though. LeBron has to win multiple titles or this is a…

  8. Charles Barkley is on LeBron's list now, calls the decision a "punk move"

    Aug 12, 2010, 5:01 PM EST

    It’s August, but Charles Barkley is in mid-season form. He went on ESPN Radio in Dallas Thursday (via FanHouse) and aligned himself with the many people who now see the Miami Heat as the league’s villains. And he’s having none of LeBron’s “taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me” either. “I heard about…

  9. If you want to see the Heat play, it's going to cost you

    Aug 12, 2010, 2:22 PM EST

    Hate them all you want — you want to see them. The Heat are in demand ‚ their gear is topping NBA sales charts (especially the LeBron No. 6 Heat jersey). And people want to see the Heat. Television ratings for their games will top what the NBA has done since Jordan suited up. If…

  10. Chris Bosh was "playing with people's emotions." And enjoying it.

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    Chris Bosh is loving the spotlight. After years of feeling ignored and underappreciated in Toronto he’s now showing up on Regis & Kelly and doing a New York media blitz. He’s big time. And he’s playing it up — and playing with your emotions, as he told the New York Daily News. “If you think…

  11. For your winter reading: "The Miami Heat's Hijacking of the NBA" by Ric Bucher

    Aug 12, 2010, 10:03 AM EST

    It’s pretty easy to picture your local Barnes & Nobel changing up the little display in front currently covered with love him/hate him Barack Obama books and putting up love them/hate them Miami Heat books. The first of what should be many will be coming from the pen, er, computer of ESPN’s Ric Bucher. According…

  12. King LeBron knows who's been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake

    Aug 11, 2010, 8:35 AM EST

    Ever since his announcement that he was taking his talents to South Beach, LeBron James has taken a lot of criticism. And he’s been making a list and checking it twice, of who has been naughty and nice, as he announced on his twitter account. Don’t think for one min that I haven’t been taking…

  13. Winderman: Nine games the Heat could lose you didn't expect

    Aug 10, 2010, 5:49 PM EST

    Even before the NBA released its complete schedule Tuesday, there were plenty of logical assumptions that could have been made about the longshot odds of the revamped Miami Heat matching the 72-10 of the 1995-96 Bulls. There are, after all, four games apiece against the Celtics and Magic, as well as two against the Lakers,…

  14. LeBron James pays six figures to a rabbi to sit in on business meetings

    Aug 10, 2010, 3:32 PM EST

    Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto is the rabbi to the financial stars in New York, the guy New York’s Jewish real estate experts, financial wizards and the like consult for advice. Apparently LeBron James hired him for spiritual guidance for a recent series of high-level marketing meetings, according to TMZ (so take with salt). And paid…

  15. Kevin Durant is your favorite for MVP

    Aug 9, 2010, 4:36 PM EST

    Another sign that Kevin Durant is blowing up — he is now the odds-on favorite to be the league MVP next season. Not Kobe, not LeBron, but KD. That according to our friends at Bodog.com, who laid out the odds for the award next season: Kevin Durant 5/2Kobe Bryant 3/1LeBron James 9/2Dwight Howard 13/2Dwayne Wade…

  16. LeBron's long time girlfriend not loving Miami but she is stepping out of the cold

    Aug 9, 2010, 2:36 PM EST

    Savannah Brinson does not come off as a woman ready to go on “Basketball Wives.” She sounds like a woman comfortable with herself and her role in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. But don’t confuse that with her loving the idea of moving to Miami. “Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is…

  17. For what it's worth, Rondo featured on Team USA's website

    Aug 9, 2010, 1:42 PM EST

    Nike’s World Basketball Festival has inspired some rather bodacious promo art, as various players from the participating teams — Yi Jianlian, Anderson Varejao, all Nike-signed players, of course — are displayed in tremendously stylish manner. Though Kevin Durant has been Team USA’s primary subject for most of the posters and billboards advertising the event, today…

  18. LeBron, Wade, 'Melo play with president Obama for wounded troops

    Aug 8, 2010, 7:48 PM EST

    Turns out there is one other person who can put together a superteam besides Pat Riley. President Barack Obama summoned some of the biggest stars in the NBA to play a special game for wounded troops, according to the Associated press. Playing were LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony as well as legends Bill Russell…

  19. Video: LeBron speaks in Akron, expressing his love for Cleveland

    Aug 8, 2010, 6:18 PM EST

      Here’s the video, LeBron James speaking in Akron at his annual bike-a-thon for charity. He says all the right things. Clevelanders would like to remind you that actions speak louder than words.

  20. Jeff Van Gundy says the Heat will break Bulls' record of 72 wins

    Aug 8, 2010, 12:25 PM EST

    Oh, good. This should go over well. Jeff Van Gundy, in an interview with the Miami Herald, thinks the Heat will break the ’96 Bulls’ record of 72 wins, and will challenge the ’72 Lakers’ record for consecutive wins of 33. No, seriously. He went out and said what a lot of people are thinking:…

  21. LeBron not only shows up for Akron event, but doesn't get booed into oblivion

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:41 AM EST

    In the aftermath of “The Decision,” a few Cleveland fans emerged from the rubble. Stumbling, mumbling to themselves, they asked a question, “Wait, LeBron’s got charity events in Akron in a few weeks. Is he even going to be able to show his face there?” The question, apparently, is a resounding yes. LeBron’s King for…

  22. Can the Heat be beat inside?

    Aug 5, 2010, 12:15 PM EST

    Nobody is going to be better than the Miami Heat at the two, three and four spots. But picture them playing Orlando. Jameer Nelson has the ball (guarded by Mario Chalmers) and Dwight Howard (covered by Joel Anthony) comes out to set the high pick. That is a hard-to-stop P&R combo for any team, and…

    Aug 4, 2010, 10:38 AM EST

    Eddie House already came to an agreement with the Miami on the terms of a two-year contract, but he’s now officially a member of the Heat according the Associated Press. Miami inked House to a two-year, $2.8 million contract, one of the great value signings of the tail end of free agency. House is a…

  24. Maverick Carter defends LeBron's Akron letter as having nothing to do with Cleveland

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:45 AM EST

    LeBron James is an Akron man. Born and raised. Still lives there. Do not confuse that with being a Cleveland man. He played for the Cavaliers, but don’t go thinking Akron and Cleveland are one in the same. Well, Clevelanders may consider Akron a suburb but the feeling is not mutual. The fine folks of…

  25. Welcome to the big time Miami — and a tough start to the season

    Aug 3, 2010, 9:45 PM EST

    You wanted to be big time, you wanted the spotlight Miami. Well you got it. And everything that comes with it. Like a tough first week. First you get the Boston Celtics in Boston. Three nights later you get to host the Orlando Magic. The last two Eastern Conference champions in your first two games.…
