LeBron James

  1. LeBron wants Cleveland fans to know he misses them

    Oct 17, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    I’ll take “things that will not go over well” for $200, Alex… Cleveland fans will never forgive LeBron James. They see his move to Miami as a betrayal and abandonment, his public announcement of it the ultimate insult. LeBron isn’t looking for their for forgivenss, but he tweeted (when anwering fans questions) that he misses…

  2. NFL players say LeBron should stick to basketball

    LeBron NFL commercial

    LeBron James should be in Heat training camp, but because he’s got more time on his hands he sounds a little bored. Which led him to tweeting about when an NFL team could sign a free agent the other day. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll picked up on that and went so far as Carroll…

  3. Pete Carroll tries to recruit LeBron to Seahawks. Jokingly.

    The Seattle Seahawks passing game could use some help. They are 25th in the NFL at 205 passing yards per game and, while they complete a pretty average number of passes a contest, they average just 6.6 yards per passing attempt (26th in the league). They need a big-time receiver. Like maybe LeBron James. On Tuesday,…

  4. Kevin Durant to host star-studded charity game in OKC

    The NBA player charity game circuit is coming to America’s heartland. Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant had talked about setting up a game in OKC and apparently he has pulled it off and it will become official on Wednesday, reports the Oklahoman. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is making good on his promise…

  5. NBA players launch “let us play” twitter campaign

    Oct 10, 2011, 3:08 PM EDT

    NBA basketball

    Sunday night at the Drew League vs. Goodman League, the NBA players were on script — they said they just wanted to play. To a man. It was like a mantra repeated in both locker rooms. Monday, they took the campaign to twitter. NBA players starting with union president Derek Fisher and on through LeBron…

  6. Carmelo Anthony to host the next star-studded exhibition game in NYC

    Oct 10, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    Sunday’s South Florida All-Star Classic was the grandest of the NBA exhibitions to date, but it was nonetheless a single game in a series of similar contests. The summer of pro-am hoops has stretched into the fall of pro-am hoops, so much so that the idea for the next big exhibition game took mere moments to spawn…

  7. South Florida All-Star Classic hosted by LeBron and Wade reminds us of what we’ll miss

    game20111009

    There have been plenty of recreational, pickup, and charity basketball games this summer that featured various groups of NBA stars showcasing their talents. But arguably none of them were as star-studded or as competitive as the South Florida All-Star Classic at Florida International University on Saturday, hosted by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh.…

  8. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, opponents at long last

    Oct 7, 2011, 2:19 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The initial reactions to the formation of the Miami Heat primarily stemmed from places of awe, of anger, and of bewilderment. It was a development unlike anything the NBA world had ever seen, and that people responded so strongly came as no surprise. Yet eventually, those three very separate reactions were filtered into one. The…

  9. LeBron James practices with high school football team

    Oct 5, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. Well, if a high school team had 26-year-old LeBron James suited up, they probably couldn’t lose. LeBron went Friday Night Lights on Tuesday afternoon, putting on the pads and walking on the practice field at St. Vincent-St. Mary (where he went to high school) and went through part of…

  10. Pippen clarifies: Someday, maybe, LeBron could be best ever

    Oct 5, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    There is nobody, anywhere, who thinks that right now LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan was. Not even Kid LeBron, Business LeBron or Wise LeBron. Bulls’ legend Scottie Pippen stepped in a pile of trouble earlier this year suggesting LeBron could be a better player than MJ. Then Pippen backtracked. Even LeBron didn’t want…

  11. Are owners, players closer to a deal than it seems? Maybe.

    Oct 4, 2011, 11:44 PM EDT

    billy-hunter-david-stern

    David Stern spent a lot of his post-negotiating session Tuesday trying to make a point — that the players walked away from a fair deal, a 50/50 split of “basketball related income.” It felt like spin at the time, in part because it was an informal concept and part just how Stern portrayed it. Well,…

  12. Winderman: Charity games show fans’ passion, market to see NBA elite

    Oct 3, 2011, 2:55 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    How intense is the demand from the NBA market for product? Tickets to the Saturday lockout exhibition at Florida International University that LeBron James is helping promote sold out within two hours Monday. Even though there were no on-line or phone sales, and even though some windows at the school’s box office only took cash…

  13. Heat, Celtics players party together. With Knicks guys.

    Oct 3, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics, Game 5

    Never, not for one minute, think that how you as a fan feel about your heated rival is how a player feels. No matter what intensity you see on the court. This is not the 1950s. As evidence, we present you Knicks, Celtics and Heat players all partying together like it’s 1999. That just hours…

  14. Isiah Thomas: People don’t like LeBron because he’s successful

    Oct 3, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Say what you want about Isiah Thomas — and we’ve said plenty over the years — the man knows about being disliked. He was the best player on the “bad boy” Pistons teams. You’ll be hard pressed to find people around the old CBA league that speaks well of him. And then there’s the entire…

  15. You want to see more crazy exhibition highlights from LeBron James and Chris Paul, right? Right?

    Oct 2, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Another day, another charity game full of highlights which really only reinforce how much better the NBA product is. LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Rudy Gay, and a host of other players played in a charity exhibition Saturday night in support of the CP3 Foundation. The players definitely put on a show, even if…

  16. NBA Lockout: BRI is still the elephant in the room

    Oct 1, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    NBA basketball players Wade, Anthony and Paul gesture to fans as they arrive at a promotional event at an outdoor basketball court in Beijing

    The NBA labor negotiations’ approach to the issue of BRI was pretty simple on Saturday. See no evil, hear no evil, see no conflict, make no progress. Both sides took BRI off the table and focused on systemic issues, trying to “break down the mountain” as Derek Fisher put it. It wasn’t a bad approach.…

  17. Zydrunas Ilgauskas officially retires from NBA

    Lithuanian big man Zydrunas Ilgauskas is retiring from the NBA after 13 seasons, 12 of them anchoring he middle for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ilgauskas spoke with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which tweeted his quotes. Ilgauskas: “enough is enough. My body is beat up and I’m tired physically. There is no age limit, but everyone knows…

  18. Are NBA’s biggest stars underpaid? Actually, yes.

    Sep 30, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Is Kobe Bryant underpaid at $25 million next season? What about LeBron James at $16 million? Dirk Nowitzki at $19 million? Dwayne Wade at $15.5 million? Yes, actually they are. A bunch of teachers, firemen, nurses and other hardworking people just cursed my name. If I were on a stage tomatoes would come flying out…

  19. LeBron, Wade, Durant headline NBA stars at labor talks

    Sep 30, 2011, 11:24 AM EDT

    Friday is a big day in the NBA labor talks — negotiations over the past weeks and years have led to a larger meeting in New York between nearly half the NBA owners and a number of NBA players. The union will have it’s brightest stars on hand — LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade…

  21. LeBron James brings his closing skills to Boston Red Sox

    Sep 29, 2011, 11:49 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Less than a decade ago, the kind of collapse the Boston Red Sox pulled off in the last month would have been just part of another typical New England fall. It was just another scar for a fan base that expected nothing less and bonded over those wounds. But this time, you can blame LeBron…

  22. Dwyane Wade says Heat need to pass chemistry to win

    Sep 28, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    lebron-wade-celebration

    Chemistry is hard. It’s hard for high school students — if you just said “no it wasn’t” I’m not sure we can be friends — and it’s hard for sports teams. It was hard for the Miami Heat. Dwyane Wade was in a talkative mood on with Jorge Sedano of 790 The Ticket in Miami…

  23. LeBron, Wade, Bosh bring stars to Miami for charity game

    Sep 27, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    Miami’s power trio — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — are reuniting in Miami, and thanks to Nike they are brining a boatload of other NBA stars with them this time. Of course, it’s all for charity, an Oct 8 game at Florida International University. Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated tweeted about it…

    Nickelodeon Celebrates Largest Ever Worldwide Day Of Play In Washington, Around The World

    I could tell you that Team Philadelphia beat the Goodman League team Sunday. That would be Goodman League team with LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. Philly got out to a fast start and a big lead, and no amount of stars could chase them down. I could tell you that, but do you…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski — head coach of Team USA — has some brutal choices ahead of him next summer. Team USA is in the 2012 London Olympics and will come in the heavy favorite, but there are some other very good teams out there that could push the USA — Spain and Argentina come to mind,…
