  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Zydrunas Ilgauskas officially retires from NBA

    Sep 30, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 29, 2011, 1:44 PM EDT

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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,…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. Miami to make a run at Nene in free agency… yes, it’s a longshot

    Sep 4, 2011, 9:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Nene has been very clear that as the most coveted free agent in this upcoming class — whenever we get into a condensed, hurried free agency period post lockout — money is not going to be his deciding factor. He wants to win. It’s not about the money. I’m sure he means it. That said,…

  20. Chris Bosh says Heat players will begin offseason work “soon”

    Sep 4, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Chris Bosh probably got it a little raw last season. Before you freak out, bear in mind that I started trashing Bosh and his decision making back when he was at Lakers games in the playoffs before signing with the Heat, soaking up all the attention. I argued that Amar’e Stoudemire was a more valuable…

  21. Dwyane Wade, fashion impresario on pages of VMAN

    Wade in VMAN

    Dwyane Wade is serious about fashion. And you can get a look at fashionista Wade in the pages of VMAN Magazine starting Thursday when the magazine lands on your doorstep. What, you don’t subscribe? Well, I guess you can get it at a newsstand, but we need to talk. Anyway, there was a preview at…

  22. Mark Cuban says Dallas outcoached Miami in finals

    Aug 30, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    The longer the lockout lasts, the longer Mark Cuban gets to bask in the glow of being the owner of the NBA Champions. Sure, the whole “I can’t talk about my players or David Stern will hammer me with fines” part is no fun, but Cuban is loving this winning a title thing. Like when…

  23. Guess who’s coming to Melo league? Hint: It rhymes with “Neddy Whurry.”

    Aug 28, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    I know you were probably excited for the Team Melo vs. non-officially-but-pretty-much Goodman League in the exhibition next month. It’s LeBron, and Melo, and Chris Paul, sharing a court against Kevin Durant and Brandon Jennings and the like. But now, now we have a real reason for you to get excited. Ladies and gentlemen, from Hoopsworld:…

  24. Wade says he, LeBron passed chemistry last season

    Aug 26, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    Heat's James congratulates Wade after scoring against the Mavericks during fourth quarter in Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami

    Dwyane Wade says the Miami Heat passed chemistry. Early in the season they were failing it pretty badly as Wade and LeBron James seemed to just take turns trying to get isolation sets and take over games. But that evolved. Somewhat. Wade said that by the end of the season concerns that he and LeBron…

  25. Dwyane Wade says Bulls are “one player away”

    Aug 25, 2011, 5:12 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Dwyane Wade is just like the rest of us in one respect — he’s a Derrick Rose fan. Wade can also relate to Rose, not just as a Chicago native but also on the court. For years in Miami (after the 2006 title year) it was the Dwyane Wade show and nothing else — he…
