LeBron James

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Dwight Howard may not play, pick up fouls in World Championships

    Apr 27, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    One would think Dwight Howard would be itching to play some international ball right about now — they let the game get physical there, far more pushing and grabbing. None of those silly fouls he keeps picking up in the playoffs. No more cardboard walls around Superman. But apparently not. Howard may be the latest…

  9. NBA Playoffs: LeBron James with just another 46-foot jumper/buzzer beater

    Apr 26, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    LeBron James, killer. Destroyer of hope. Dominator. Touched by the gods. Inhuman force of nature. Whatever you want to call him, he showed what he is in game four Sunday. Including casually hitting a half-court pullup jumper over Derrick Rose. Like one does everyday. No need to put any extra push into it, just shoot…

  10. Dwight Howard dumps long-time agent

    Apr 25, 2010, 9:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard has pulled a LeBron James. He has dumped Aaron Goodwin as his agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. Goodwin was Howard’s agent when he came out of high school and was the top pick overall by the Magic. Howard’s next move is unclear, although sources say he planned to lean more toward…

  11. NBA Playoffs, Cavaliers Bulls Game 4: All bow down before King James, including you Bulls

    Apr 25, 2010, 9:08 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah has given no love to anybody or any place in this series. That includes LeBron James, who ranked as “pretty good” before the series. What did Noah tell Brian Windhorst about LeBron after he dropped a 37 point, 12 rebound, 11 assist game on the Bulls? “The best player in the world.” The…

  12. Dwyane Wade says he and LeBron play well together, making meaningless headlines

    Apr 25, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    We all love some juicy gossip, and the “Where will LeBron play?” soap opera is the best one going right now. Followed closely by the “Where will Wade play?” one. But now things have gotten ridiculous. Truly ludicrous. Take this comment (via AP) that is drawing headlines. Speaking after practice in Miami on Saturday, one…

  13. Where in the world is JJ Hickson?

    Apr 23, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

    Remember JJ Hickson? That rookie that caught your eye with his energy off the Cavaliers bench? Mike Brown doesn’t seem to. The second half of he season Hickson gave the Cavaliers 10.4 points on 56 percent shooting, pus six boards a game in 23 minutes every game. He was a quality role player off the…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Bulls rode strong start and hung on for dear life to beat the Cavs in Game 3

    Apr 22, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Winning Game 3 wasn’t going to convince anyone that Chicago will win the series, but this game was huge. The Bulls sprinted out to an early double-digit lead behind a huge opening frame from Derrick Rose (15 in the first quarter alone on 6-of-8 shooting; he finished with 31 points on 26 shots, seven assists,…

  15. LeBron James loves him some Chicago

    Apr 21, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    LeBron James is not playing Joakim Noah’s game. Not just on the court, where LeBron’s game is several notches above (no offense to Noah, who has proven to be a quality player, but LeBron’s game is several notches above all but a couple guys). But off it as well. LeBron is not going to be…

  16. Cavaliers need to reach Eastern Conference finals to turn profit

    Apr 21, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    Look at the top six payrolls in the NBA this season (in order): Lakers, Mavericks, Celtics, Knicks, Cavaliers, Magic. Your NBA champion is going to come out of that group (and it’s not going to be the Knicks). For all the talk of parity, you have got to spend to win in this league. But…

  17. Hawks owner: Josh Smith is the "closest thing to LeBron"

    Apr 21, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

    When Josh Smith is on, there are few players more fun to watch in the league. And he was on Tuesday night — 21 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists. He and Al Horford won game two for the Hawks. It’s the kind of game that can make an owner overstate your value to a…

  18. NBA Playoffs: LeBron James flat out abuses James Johnson

    Apr 20, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    After the game, LeBron James said this was one of this best dunks ever. That puts it high on an very impressive list. Watch this — notice how badly James Johnson gets beat off the dribble by LeBron, To Johnson’s credit, he didn’t quit on the play, but that really just led to more embarrassment.

  19. NBA Playoffs: The Chicago Bulls played their best, and it was still not enough

    Apr 20, 2010, 8:43 AM EDT

    A harsh reality landed upon the Chicago Bulls Monday night — The Bulls played their best; their best was not good enough. They made the right decisions, they scrapped and fought inside, they played with passion. And they lost. The final score was 112-102, and that 10-point margin is how much the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled…

  20. NBA Playoffs Matchup Mastery: Should the Bulls surrender to LeBron and go big?

    Apr 19, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT

    So, the Bulls got ramrodded in Game 1. It happens to 8th seeds. But they did make a furious comeback and weren’t completely outside the context of a comeback. So is there anything the Bulls can do to try and combat the numerous advantages the Cavs have tonight? The answer lies at the heart of…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Zone defense ain't no thing, Cavs coast to a Game 1 win over Bulls

    Apr 17, 2010, 7:18 PM EDT

    Let’s not pretend that the Bulls’ performance in this game was somehow significant; after building an early double-digit lead, the Cavs worked, and held, and coasted, until a temporary hiccup against the Bulls’ zone defense made this game a bit closer than it should have been. Does that mean Chicago is somehow going to make…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Cavaliers set to dominate, so enjoy the Bulls while you can

    Apr 17, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    What do the Chicago Bulls need to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers? A miracle. Hijinx. Steroids. Food poisoning for LeBron. Flubber. Possession by a basketball-playing demon. Stink bombs in the Cavs’ locker room. A magic lamp. Oh, and on top of all that, they need to play nearly perfect basketball from top to bottom. Honestly, if…

  23. Debate over resting LeBron nearing new levels of absurdity

    Apr 14, 2010, 11:36 AM EDT

    LeBron James is the best player on the planet, and as such people really, really like seeing him play. Me too, as I delight in watching basketballing and basketbally things, especially when that basketballing is done by LeBron James. That said, with championship-caliber teams there should be an implicit understanding between franchise and fan: if…

  24. 2010 Free Agency, from LeBron James to Will Bynum

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

    So many teams have amassed cap space for the 2010 free agent frenzy, but not everyone can end up with LeBron James. Some team will end up with Josh Howard and Channing Frye instead. I mean, that cap space wasn’t going to spend itself, am I right? For all the fans out there that know…

  25. Cavaliers' wardrobe crisis continues

    Mar 29, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are the gluttons of the Eastern Conference. It wasn’t enough to have the best record in the East, they had to trade for Antawn Jamison. Then it wasn’t enough to trade for Antawn Jamison, they had to get a full return on their only investment in the deal, Zydrunas Ilgauskas. And now,…
