  1. Eddy Curry pulls out of Miami charity game, Caron Butler to play

    Oct 8, 2011, 7:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry had lost all that weight, reportedly 100 lbs. making him the Biggest Loser in the good way for the first time in his career. His coming out party was supposed to be the charity event in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Mario Chalmers, members (or former in restricted free-agent Mario Chalmers’…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Who gets really hurt by lockout: Heat slash salaries of staff

    Oct 5, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    971115_tour_arena_second_floor

    This is by far the most frustrating part about the NBA lockout — while the owners and players argue over how to split up $4 billion a year of the fans’ money, people with regular jobs and salaries who rely on the league for a living are the ones feeling the pinch. One that will…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Today would have been “NBA media day” instead….

    Oct 3, 2011, 11:22 AM EDT

    lakers-practice-court

    Today, the eyes of the NBA will be on a swanky Manhattan hotel where the NBA and players union will meet again. NBA talk will be about salary caps and basketball related income, with breaks to discuss star-studded games in Miami and Los Angeles next weekend. What today should be about was NBA training camps…

  8. 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…

  9. Dwyane Wade on lockout: “We may lose a year”

    Oct 1, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's 24th Annual Sports Spectacular

    Dwyane Wade took time out from pointing fingers at David Stern on Friday to talk with Darren Rovell, the CNBC sports business guru who has a fun new show on Versus, “Sports Biz: Game On” (he comes from a different perspective than most sports talk shows). And like he did with Stern, Wade pulled no…

  10. 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…

  11. Video: Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh on Law & Order: SVU

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

    Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony were on “Law & Order: SVU” last night, and they were successfully able to pull off playing themselves. Below is the video of the entire episode — which we’re sure you watched live here on NBC but we guess you want to re-watch it — and ‘Melo and Bosh can…

  12. Set your DVR, part deux: Bosh, ‘Melo on “Law & Order: SVU” Wednesday

    Sep 28, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    While we’re pimping NBA players on NBC television shows, we need to remind you: Knicks potential savior Carmelo Anthony and Miami Heat star Chris Bosh will be on “Law & Order: SVU” Wednesday night. Insert your own “nice to see an NBA player with police and not in handcuffs” jokes here. Bosh and ‘Melo are…

  13. 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…

  14. Heat uniquely positioned to take advantage of possible amnesty clause

    Sep 22, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    In addition to the free agent bonanza that will take place following the conclusion of the lockout, there is now a distinct possibility that an amnesty clause — akin to the 2005 Allan Houston Rule — will release even more players back onto the open market. For those unfamiliar, such an exception would allow teams…

  15. How would full lost season impact LeBron’s record chase?

    Sep 21, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    You legions of LeBron James haters don’t want to hear this, but it’s true — he is on pace to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and become the NBA’s all time leading scorer. He’s on pace to find a place in the record books in a number of other areas, too, such as being up the list…

  16. LeBron joins crowd, pokes fun at himself in McDonald’s ad

    Sep 21, 2011, 3:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    From our “if you can’t beat them, join them” files…. It’s been open season on LeBron James for a few things in the past year — his hairline, The Decision, and the rather foolish statement about the Heat winning “not, four, not five, not six” championships. Many took all this together as a sign of…

  17. Charles Barkley tells LeBron James to lighten up

    Sep 19, 2011, 12:46 PM EDT

    Image (1) cbarkley-thumb-250x140-18078.jpg for post 6241

    It’s the offseason, there’s a lockout, and yet Charles Barkley is still finding a way to get Miami fans mad at him. And they were plenty mad at him before. Barkley went on Dan LeBatard is Highly Questionable (a new show on ESPN2) last Friday to talk about whatever Barkley has an opinion on. Which…

  18. Sebastian Telfair wants to play for a contender. Don’t we all?

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Sebastian Telfair

    Sebastian Telfair will be a free agent when the lockout ends, and there will be some demand for him to come in as a backup point guard. The man will get paid. Maybe not as much as he hoped under whatever the new labor deal looks like, but he will get paid. But of course,…

  19. Udonis Haslem: Super happy optimistic guy…?

    Sep 11, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Udonis Haslem is not a pleasant dude to talk to. I’m sure to friends and family he’s a right cuddly teddy bear. But to media, his reaction to most everything falls between dull boredom and outright disgust. It’s like if Oscar the Grouch could kill you. Pretty much that. But apparently he’s got a pretty…

  20. What’s the value of an athlete’s apology? Does it matter for LeBron?

    Sep 10, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    People tend to forget (or they don’t want to hear it), but LeBron James did apologize to Cleveland and fans for “how it all went down” with the decision. Of course, those comments came in May after the Heat had eliminated the Celtics from the playoffs, and were of the sentiment that “sorry, but I…

  21. Video: Gordon Hayward makes his “decision” parody

    Sep 9, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    HAYWARD_GORDON

    Now that the skinny white kid from Utah has made his “decision” parody video, can we officially say that the LeBron James “Decision” meme is dead. Please let it be dead. We already told you how Hayward was going to be a professional Starcraft II player during the lockout. Which doesn’t quite pay as well…

  22. Norris Cole works out with LeBron James, gets introduction to Heat culture

    Sep 8, 2011, 1:48 PM EDT

    Norris Cole

    The lockout has added upheaval to every phase of the NBA’s off-season, but the process has been particularly tumultuous for incoming rookies. The lucky rooks have been able to establish some kind of contact with their team (preliminary conversations with coaches or general managers, introductory press conferences, etc.), but there are plenty of other first-year…

  23. Video: LeBron James optimistic about season, Heat’s chances

    Sep 8, 2011, 11:36 AM EDT

    NBA basketball player US LeBron James pl

    As LeBron James works his way through Asia on a Nike-sponsored tour (and if you don’t think it’s all about Nike, take a look at the setting in this video), he stopped to do a little Q&A with the fans. LeBron has been consistently optimistic that there would be a season, and he states that…

  24. Michael Jordan in the clutch vs. LeBron James

    Sep 7, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This is not a slam on LeBron James. This is not about who is the better player in the clutch, Michael Jordan or LeBron. Or who is the better player, period (not sure that’s a debate right now). It’s about the attitude Jordan had, what Jordan learned, and what LeBron James needs to pick up…

  25. If you want to win in the NBA, forget point guards. Go big.

    Sep 5, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    During the summer, we get a buzz watching John Wall say he is back and slash through guys at the Goodman league. Or watching Brandon Jennings cut it up at the Drew League. We relate to the normal sized guy who can find a way to get it done in the NBA. We love Derrick…
