LeBron James

  1. NBA All-Defense Team filled with playoff participants. Coincidence?

    May 5, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Defense wins championships. Or, at least you gets you into the playoffs. That’s the one easy takeaway from the announcement of the NBA All-Defensive teams. There are no shocks on here, everyone belongs, which is what you get when the coaches vote and not media members paid by teams who have their own agendas. Of…

  2. LeBron's elbow to have another MRI, tweet about it

    May 5, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    LeBron James’ is having a second MRI on his elbow, and there is nothing funny about that. Unless you’re reading LeBron’s elbow’s twitter account. Seriously. First the news part of this post, because how can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat? LeBron is having a second MRI on his elbow today…

  3. Quote of the day, where Bird is high on LeBron

    May 4, 2010, 2:56 PM EDT

    “He’s one guy in the league that I think he’ll probably be better than all of us when it’s all said and done.” –Larry Bird, Celtics legend and current Pacers president, on LeBron James, as told to NBA.com.

  4. Kobe vs. LeBron: The rap references mix

    May 4, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are not basketball players, they are cultural icons. They are brands. They are images. And they referenced in rap and hip-hop as much as the chronic. Well, not that much, but a lot. But who has the better references? Kobe with Lil Wayne? LeBron with Jay-Z? Complex put a list…

  5. Cavaliers are not happy, not panicked either

    May 4, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    That was an old fashioned ass-kicking the Celtics put on the Cavaliers last night. Not shockingly, the Celtics players were pretty happy, but get a minute in and you will see one ticked off Cavaliers coach Mike Brown. He should be, his team played with no desire. LeBron James admits it, but isn’t nearly as…

  6. David Stern on LeBron: "Hopefully, he'll stay."

    May 4, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    I don’t know if you’ve heard this, but LeBron James can be a free agent this summer. No, really. He can be. The media is ignoring this little story, but it is true. (Before you write something in the comments, read that paragraph again in a sarcastic voice.) Since everyone else in America had weighed…

  7. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 2: Celtics attempt to charge the gates once more

    May 3, 2010, 6:19 PM EDT

    Celtics fans: “Okay, guys, just do what you did in the first half of Game 1, but for the WHOLE GAME THIS TIME. Got it?Ready…break!” Cavs fans: “Let’s not toy with them this time, okay guys?” The Cavs came out in the first half of Game 1 and looked shellshocked. They had no answers for…

  8. LeBron James home next season: Place your bets

    May 3, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Part of the beauty of society/crumbling of our nation’s moral fiber (take your pick) is that you can bet on just about anything. Just a few mouse clicks and you can bet anything from presidential elections to the Oscars. Oh, and where LeBron James will suit up next year. Bodog.com put up the numbers, and…

  9. LeBron James accepts his MVP award

    May 3, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    A whole bunch of people showed up to watch LeBron James formally accept his MVP award. And he gave a pretty good speech. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.  

  10. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 1: Elbow this

    May 1, 2010, 10:41 PM EDT

    Everything was going so well for Boston. Shaq missing chippies. Rajon Rondo dominating. Kendrick Perkins protecting inside. Kevin Garnett playing as well as he has this season. A lead, in Cleveland, and just a quarter and a half to close. Plus, LeBron’s elbow was making him timid. Elbow this. (Click here to see PBT’s first…

  11. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 1 Halftime: Celtics have all the answers so far

    May 1, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    For all the improvements the Cavs were supposed to have made, in Game 1, the Celtics looked like they had all the answers. The Celtics lead 54-43 at the half, Rajon Rondo has 19 points and 8 assists, LeBron James looks hurt and the Cavs look lost. The Cavs worked to get inside position on…

  12. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 1: The rematch begins

    May 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s right that it should go this way. These two never faced one another last year, and now that the Celtics are at full strength and the Cavaliers are ruling the roost, we need to settle this. The 2008 Champions, seeking to regain what they feel is their rightful title. And the Cavaliers, aiming to…

  13. LeBron James: I'll be ready for game one

    Apr 30, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    LeBron James’ elbow got an MRI and all they found was awesomeness. Okay, maybe not, but they didn’t find any structural damage, he’s ready to go for game one tomorrow against Boston. Don’t believe me? Then hear it from LeBron himself.  

  14. It's been a few months, must be time for another roster shakeup in Dallas

    Apr 30, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    They shook it up at the trading deadline — in comes Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood. Scoring help and a better center, a deal that looked great on paper — and that didn’t work well at all. The Mavericks looked dangerous at first but their season ended with another first round loss. May be time…

  15. Danny Ainge: this Celtics/Cavaliers series isn't like two years ago. Ya think?

    Apr 30, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    Two years ago, on their way to the NBA championship, the Celtics and Cavaliers had a fantastic, epic clash in the second round. Seven big games, where at times it looked like LeBron James was going to almost single-handedly knock Boston out of the playoffs. Coming out of that, the Celtics were sharper than they…

  16. Surprise, surprise, LeBron James to be named the 2009-2010 MVP

    Apr 30, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    This year’s MVP race has been without drama for months, as LeBron James seemed to stand head and shoulders above his competition. Now, even the illusion of uncertainty can be wiped away, as Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that LeBron will receive his second straight MVP award and will officially receive his…

  17. NBA Playoffs: LeBron's hurt elbow is a delightful joke

    Apr 29, 2010, 1:21 PM EDT

    Make no mistake, LeBron’s elbow strain, while not serious, is pretty serious. Not necessarily in the degree of the injury, but certainly in its potential magnitude. The Orlando Magic are a tough out even for a fully healthy Cleveland team, and the Boston Celtics aren’t exactly slouching these days, either. That makes LeBron’s elbow an…

  18. Let the LeBron James silly season begin: LeBron to Charlotte? Really?

    Apr 28, 2010, 8:07 PM EDT

    I’d like to say that the idea of LeBron James going to play for the Charlotte Bobcats next year is the silliest LeBron James rumor/theory we are going to hear in the next three months. It’s not. I’m leaning toward a “he is leaving America to play for FC Barcelona” rumor to win out. I…

  19. Vinny Del Negro to twist in the wind while Bulls management pretends to think about decision

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:47 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro’s Bulls put up a fight. They did not back down from the mighty Cavaliers. LeBron James talked about their energy, and said the Bulls were well coached. Sure, the Bulls only won one game, but they were completely overmatched. All you can ask in that situation is to see some fight, and…

  20. LeBron says he's worried, but fans shouldn't be

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    About that elbow… Relax. Nothing to worry about. Oh, sure, it’s some random thing that nobody knows what it is but his arm just goes numb at times, but why worry about that? What is wrong with you people. Don’t take my word for it, here are the words of LeBron James himself.   There…

  21. Kobe Bryant still king of NBA Jersey sales, LeBron is queen, Celtics fans will buy anything.

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, you buy his gear. Admit it. The Lakers sudden defensive stopper topped the sales chart at NBA.com and the NBA Store in Manhattan for the second straight year, according to a league announcement Wednesday. LeBron James was second, because really the NBA is all about LeBron and Kobe…

  22. One of these days, Jamario, straight to the Moon

    Apr 28, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    It was Cleveland’s night. Chicago made the effort, but the Cavaliers have too much. For example, on a fast break, you best have a couple guys ready to stop LeBron James, but that opens up other opportunities.

  23. NBA Playoffs: Bulls fight valiantly, but the Cavs are still the Cavs

    Apr 28, 2010, 1:08 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls were neither deep enough nor talented enough to pose much of a threat to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they competed. They worked defensively and made things as difficult as they could for LeBron and co., but facing an opponent with so many scoring options and such chemistry ultimately proved to be too…

  24. LeBron James injures arm in clinching series win over Bulls

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:55 AM EDT

    UPDATE 4/28 12:55 am: LeBron said his arm went numb at the free throw line but seemed relatively unconcerned about this speaking to the press postgame. Here is the quote: “It bothers me because I don’t know what it is,” James said. “Hopefully it doesn’t continue to bother me. But I’m not concerned. Cleveland fans…

  25. LeBron James ignores ball boy, somehow this tells us about him as a person?

    Apr 27, 2010, 4:07 PM EDT

    In the second quarter, LeBron James was re-entering the game against the Bulls Sunday, just like he always does. The camera closely follows his every move, just like it always does. He took off his sweats and threw them to the floor, just like every other NBA player. And here’s your headline on Sports By…
