LeBron James

  1. Zydrunas Ilgauskas pens letter thanking Cleveland

    Aug 1, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Cleveland fans aren’t dealing with the loss of one favorite son. They’re dealing with two. Zydrunas Ilgauskas, a Cavalier for 14 years, headed to Miami with LeBron James to try and win a championship with his friend. James’ betrayal was “king” in Cleveland. Get it? “King?” As in, LeBron James, “King James?” It’s a pun,…

  2. Miami Heat sell out season seats, so they fire 30 members of ticket sales staff. Classy.

    Jul 30, 2010, 7:50 PM EST

    The Miami Heat are a hot ticket — they have sold out of season seats and there is a 6,000 person waiting list now. Demand for tickets is through the roof. Everybody wants to see LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together. The tickets sell themselves. So, why keep that season ticket sales staff…

  3. Video: Press Hop 2

    Jul 29, 2010, 10:05 PM EST

    It’s not all basketball, but it is the best video I saw today, so it seemed a perfect evening treat. This is from DJ Steve Porter, who is clearly a genius. There should be statues of him. 

  4. Oh, nevermind… ESPN will not be running LeBron's weekend in Vegas story

    Jul 29, 2010, 5:50 PM EST

    Yesterday we told you about the fun story of an ESPN reporter that got to be a fly on the wall when LeBron James was out on the town in Vegas, then wrote a story on it. Said story was up for about nine hours until ESPN editors yanked it down, saying they had not…

  5. Mikhail Prokhorov sticks up for LeBron

    Jul 29, 2010, 4:06 PM EST

    LeBron has plenty of people watching his back, including the editors at ESPN.com. And Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Who wrote a letter to the USA Today. The players are signed, the “Decision” is made, but the passions around this year’s extraordinary class of NBA free agents refuses to die down. What surprises me is the…

  6. Eddie House signs with Miami Heat – damn, they just got even better

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:32 PM EST

    The Miami Heat need shooters. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are two of the very best at getting to the rim, Chris Bosh plays inside. Somebody has to space the floor besides Mike Miller. That somebody is Eddie House. House signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the Heat, with the second year being a…

  7. How to nearly get you're a$@ kicked in Cleveland: Wear a LeBron Heat jersey

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:33 AM EST

    Let’s be clear about this: You have to be a complete and total a——- to wear a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey in Cleveland. You get what’s coming. To complain about anything short of physical violence is like those people that buy a house under the flight path near an airport then complain about all…

  8. What happens in Vegas… ESPN pulls unflattering LeBron James story

    Jul 28, 2010, 3:48 PM EST

    UPDATE: 3:48 pm: CNBC’s Darren Rovell got this comment from ESPN: ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz tells us why the LeBron Vegas story was pulled: “The story should have never been published. The draft was inadvertently put on the server before going through the usual editorial process. We are in the midst of looking into the…

  9. Winderman: Want to stop superstar defections? Toughen the new CBA.

    Jul 28, 2010, 9:35 AM EST

    With the NBA’s issuance of its hands-off memorandum when it comes to teams attempting back-channels overtures to Chris Paul, it will be interesting to see how far the league goes to avoid the next in a list of superstar defections that began with Chris Bosh and LeBron James. How much does the league want to…

  10. Dirk Nowitzki: I would have considered Miami if LeBron, Wade had asked

    Jul 27, 2010, 1:08 PM EST

    Nobody thought Dirk Nowitzki was going anywhere. He was technically a free agent but he loves Dallas and Dallas loves him. Especially Mark Cuban, and he had the biggest vote. So this was all a fait accompli… Or not. Nowitzki said he would have listened to offers where teams were closer to a title than…

  11. Flo-Rida video: "We already won"

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:49 AM EST

    Ain’t no reason to play no more games… Rajon Rondo thinks there is. Same with Dwight Howard. And do you even need to ask Kobe what he thinks? The Heat will be very good. But they are going to have to earn a title. And it will be harder than they think.

  12. Dwight Howard on the Heat: "They're not going to be the best team in the NBA next year"

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:27 AM EST

      Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have been sharing notes in class, apparently. No shock that the top teams — led by the top competitors — see what happened in Miami and want to take it on. There’s no shortage of people around the league that want to knock the Heat down a notch or…

  13. LeBron's rooting interest in the Chris Paul ordeal. Also, Freemasonry.

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:45 AM EST

    If we’ve learned anything from free agency this summer, it’s that NBA superstars are a part of some secret, underground, Freemason-esque society. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have been conspiring to team up for the last 15 years, and only now, with all of the planets in perfect alignment in their orbits and…

  14. LeBron James is not exactly lying low

    Jul 25, 2010, 6:05 PM EST

    Apparently LRMR’s idea of damage control is “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.” Examiner.com brings us the story of LeBron’s weekend in Vegas. James pulled out of Team USA’s trials in Turkey due to the stress of his business ventures and adjustment to wherever it was he was going to wind up in free agency…

  15. Rajon Rondo unsurprisingly is not concerned with the Heat

    Jul 25, 2010, 11:37 AM EST

    The defining characteristic of the Boston Celtics is their defense. Their second defining characteristic is arrogance. This isn’t a bad thing. The Celtics, like all great teams, pride themselves on being the team they consider the best. All season long they kept the same mantra: the only team that can beat them is themselves. This…

  16. Chris Bosh still developing documentary

    Jul 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    You’d think he would have noticed everything. The monumental backlash to “The Decision.” The massive criticism for Wade even mentioning 9/11. The plummeting Q ratings. You’d think Chris Bosh would have noticed that all the attention and self-aggrandizement the Big 3 in Miami have brought on themselves has been too much and they need to…

  17. Report: Chris Paul denies LRMR connection

    Jul 24, 2010, 8:33 AM EST

    You remember when we finally got through “The Decision” and we were so excited because we wouldn’t have to talk about LeBron for a while? Well, Chris Paul has come in and hijacked our summer away from us. Howard Beck of the New York Times, that fancy inkrag up New York way brings us news…

  18. Just in case you were curious, Stephon Marbury is still completely batty

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:07 PM EST

    Whether in the All-Star game, on the bench, in a box, or in China, nothing seems to change with Stephon Marbury. He is who he’s always been, and that’s why no one should be all that surprised that when given the opportunity to be a part of the championship-favorite Miami Heat for the coming season,…

  19. Kevin Durant on announcing his deal on twitter: What did you expect?

    Jul 23, 2010, 2:00 PM EST

    It wasn’t what Kevin Durant did this summer that was a surprise. Everybody knew Oklahoma City was going to offer him a max extension, and everybody knew he was going to sign it. What made it news was how it was handled was such a contrast to the other big free agent moves this summer.…

  20. Don't cry over LeBron, Cleveland, Christian Eyenga is here to dry your tears

    Jul 23, 2010, 1:25 PM EST

    I don’t know if you heard, but LeBron James recently left the Cleveland Cavaliers, instantly demoting the franchise from perennial contender to — at best — middle-of-the-pack sideshow. But never fear, Clevelanders — the Cavs have signed the 30th pick in the 2009 draft, Christian Eyenga, to a two-year deal (with team options in the…

  21. Dwyane Wade on Jimmy Kimmel: LeBron owes Wade a few dinners

    Jul 23, 2010, 12:23 PM EST

    My favorite part of this two-part interview: Wade saying he gets texts from players saying they want to come to Miami, but they forget to leave their name. Fun interview, in large part because Kimmel just crushes it.

  22. Chris Paul is simply the latest consumer of the NBA arms race that started in Boston

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    In 2007, the Spurs won their fourth title inside of a decade. They defeated a LeBron James-led Cavs team that featured Sasha Pavlovic as the fifth-leading scorer on the team. The arguable second-best team was the Phoenix Suns who would immediately begin a spiral based off of the hyper-reactive initial moves of Steve Kerr. The…

  23. LeBron, Wade and Bosh could be worth $1 billion to South Florida

    Jul 22, 2010, 3:21 PM EST

    Go ahead and mock LeBron for taking the easy way out in Miami. Make the SuperFriends your most hated team. They don’t care, and the Miami Heat don’t care. Because money talks. The Lakers had (still hold?) the trophy for most hated team in the league, and they generate more money than any team in…

  24. Yes Magic, you would team up with other superstars. In fact you did.

    Jul 22, 2010, 10:13 AM EST

    Magic Johnson has done what we all do — we remember ourselves as better and more noble than we really were. We rewrite our personal histories to fit those better selves. Remember how Magic Johnson agreed with Michael Jordan? How he said the two would never have teamed up with other superstars because they were…

  25. Derrick Rose gets his wish, he is now the face of the Bulls

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:25 PM EST

    There was talk that one reason LeBron James soured on Chicago as the place he would be taking his talents was the shadow cast by Michael Jordan. Let’s hope that was not the case, because great players embrace the challenge of living up to the past of a legendary franchise (see Kevin Garnett and Kobe…
