  1. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  2. Bosh out, Wade questionable as Miami tries to stop skid

    Jan 22, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    The Heat are now on a four game losing streak, and the easy answer is injury, which has kept at least one of the Triad out since their first loss of this streak against the… ahem… Clippers. And against Toronto in Miami this evening, it would appear they’re going to be short at least one…

  3. Are we going to see LeBron’s post-up game?

    Jan 21, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    At 6-9 and an estimated 270 pounds, LeBron James is the same size as Blake Griffin and Karl Malone. He usually has at least 30 or 40 pounds on anybody who guards him. He is one of the strongest players in the league, and has no problem finishing inside with either hand. All of those…

  4. Phil Jackson thinks the Celtics will win the East

    Jan 19, 2011, 5:41 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    Legendary coach Phil Jackson has never been shy about using the media to take not-so-sly shots at rival teams, players, and coaches, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop any time soon. In an interview with ESPN 710′s Max Kellerman earlier today, Jackson said that he thinks the Boston Celtics will win the…

  5. Lil’ Wayne smacks LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    Rapper Lil’ Wayne is one of the handful of those lucky Americans who can afford courtside NBA seats — thank you very much “Lollipop.” But when you’re paying for those seats, say to see the Miami Heat take on the New Orleans Hornets, you expect a little respect. Especially when everyone else was smacking LeBron…

  6. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  7. Thibodeau defends Asik’s play

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:25 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    After Chris Bosh got injured in a collision with Chicago Bulls forward Omer Asik during Saturday’s game, he was critical of Asik after the game for diving after a loose ball that was close to Bosh’s legs. Asik didn’t come all that close to the ball, but he did end up making contact with Bosh’s…

  8. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  9. Carlos Boozer out Monday with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Antawn Jamison

    While we were all listening to Chris Bosh whine about his ankle being sprained, Carlos Boozer walked out of the United Center Thursday night with a boot over his left foot due to a sprained ankle. Boozer will be out Monday afternoon when they take on the Grizzlies, according to Sam Smith on Bulls.com. If…

  10. Chris Bosh leaves game with sprained ankle; not considered serious

    Jan 16, 2011, 7:50 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh left the Miami Heat’s game against the Bulls Saturday in the fourth quarter and did not return to action. Postgame X-rays showed no damage and the sprain is considered not serious, according to ESPN, but he likely will have an MRI soon just to confirm that. No word on whether or not he…

  11. LeBron sits out against Bulls Saturday night

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    UPDATE 7:35 pm: It’s official, LeBron is out for a second straight game due to his sprained ankle suffered against the Clippers last Wednesday night. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, Miami is expected to be cautious during the regular season when it comes to injuries with its big three. It just puts more on…

  12. ‘Melo says it’s all about winning. Trade to Nets moves closer. Do those two things go together?

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s getting close. The Nuggets, Nets and Pistons are still negotiating, hammering out the final details of a proposed blockbuster trade, something the Denver Post and multiple other sources are reporting. The details could be finalized the first part of next week, after the Nuggets finish their road trip Sunday night. Then it all falls…

  13. How do contending teams perform in the fourth quarter?

    Jan 15, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Always Be Closing. That’s the name of the game, isn’t it? Great teams close out strong. They finish well together. They’re able to end games with finality. It’s that ability to lock down in the fourth quarter and finish teams off that separates the men from the boys. Young, weak teams can’t get it done,…

  14. Chris Bosh offers advice to Denver’s front office

    Jan 14, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Last season, we all pretty much knew Chris Bosh was out of Toronto. He didn’t push for a trade and kept hinting he might re-sign, the Raptors in retrospect should have pushed him to sign and extension or get dealt, but they didn’t. Everyone just rode out the season. So his situation was not exactly…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Two entertaining games and some ice cold Heat

    Jan 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Durant Westbrook

    What you missed while thinking about the worst things people call food…. Thunder 125, Magic 124: Two teams that will make their bones in the playoffs on defense set it aside for a night, and that led to one really entertaining game. To be fair, there was a lot of hot offensive talent on the…

  16. LeBron out Thursday against Nuggets due to ankle sprain

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:20 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is going to miss his first game of the season Thursday, sitting out the game in Denver against the Nuggets. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called James “doubtful” and since then multiple reports have him sitting out. James Jones will start in James’ place. LeBron was limping pretty badly when he rolled his ankle…

  17. LeBron James says he is day-to-day with sprained ankle

    Jan 13, 2011, 2:45 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    In the fourth quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Clippers — yes, the Heat lost to the Clippers, you read that right — LeBron James attacked the basket and after a missed layup rolled his ankle as he landed and he tried to keep weight off it as he ended up 10 feet off…

  18. LeBron says nothing personal in tweet about Cleveland

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Remember last night, after the Cavaliers Poseidon Adventure-level disaster against the Lakers in a 55-point loss, LeBron let out what seemed a pretty personal shot via twitter? Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything! Well, before tonight’s game against the Clippers James…

  19. ‘Melo talks to LeBron, adds situations are different

    Jan 12, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    Not a lot of people have been in Carmelo Anthony’s shoes — a legitimate NBA superstar pushing his way to a new team at the peak of his career. One guy who did — LeBron James. Anthony told the media Wednesday he and LeBron have spoken recently, but added the situations are very different (via…

  20. Erik Spoelstra says Heat don’t need to make trades

    Jan 12, 2011, 12:52 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    It’s the time of year when a young fan’s fancy turns to trades… but coach Erik Spoelstra says Heat fans shouldn’t bother. Sounding like a guy whose team has won 21 of 22, Spoelstra said the Heat don’t need to make any trades right now, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. “(Pat Riley)…

  21. LeBron James calls Cleveland 55-point loss “karma”

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:10 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    It was a historic, epic loss by the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night. They didn’t just lose to the Lakers, they were an embarrassment. James Naismith was rolling over in his grave. The final score, 112-57, had people shaking their heads. Except for LeBron James, who tweeted this late Tuesday night: Crazy. Karma is a b****..…

  22. Players poll picks Lakers to win championship. Again.

    Jan 11, 2011, 1:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Kobe Bryant has ongoing knee issues. Pau Gasol has seemed slow in his decision making. Matt Barnes is having major knee surgery. Derek Fisher has looked old and Steve Blake has lost his shot. Ron Artest is, well, Ron Artest. This year’s Lakers don’t seem as intimidating as past seasons. But ask NBA players who…

  23. LeBron James at center? Get used to it.

    Jan 11, 2011, 12:01 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    LeBron James has played plenty of power forward over the years. He’s played point guard (or de facto point guard, anyway), shooting guard and small forward, too. He’s done everything. Except play center. That was until Sunday, when he played it late in the Heat’s overtime victory against the Trail Blazers — and Miami outscored…

  24. Heat take over top spot in East, Celtics should be worried

    Jan 11, 2011, 9:40 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Last season it was all about Boston being healthy. Doc Rivers sacrificed games — Boston was 11-11 in their last 22 — to get healthy and have players rested for the playoffs. Boston fell to the four seed, but Rivers got the physically ready veteran team he wanted. They came within a quarter of getting…

  25. Spoelstra: The Heat have “not shown greatness yet”

    Jan 10, 2011, 5:37 PM EDT

    Spoelstra_cringe

    The Miami Heat have been pretty good recently. They’re 30-9, they’ve lost one game since November 27th, they have two of the top three players in PER, they’re a top-three team in both offensive and defensive efficiency, and they are winning games by an average of 9.5 points a night. Oh, and they’re a few…
