    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Chris Bosh got a bad rap this season. People tried to paint him as a third wheel and a disappointment, but he had worked hard to find his groove with the Miami Heat (his scoring took a step back, but what did you really expect with those teammates?). When they needed him to step up…

    Shaquille O'Neal laughs as he announces his retirement from NBA at a news conference in Windermere

    Shaquille O’Neal had a massive, blowout retirement party at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. I didn’t get an invite either, don’t feel bad.

    Dwyane Wade has had a busy month. Playing in (and, yes, losing) the NBA finals, traveling to Milan and Paris for what is apparently a series of fashion appearances, promoting his usual charity work, and apparently, dealing with a hacker. A deleted tweet mentioned that his e-mail had been hacked recently, and now a video…

    Jun 24, 2011, 8:48 PM EDT

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:25 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Every NBA finals there is one player used brilliantly by his team who has a big playoffs, happens to be a free agent, gets overpaid and is asked to play a bigger role with another team. It doesn’t always work as planned. J.J. Barea is perfectly poised to be that guy. The Mavericks want to…

  14. Did Oklahoma City make promise to Reggie Jackson?

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Jackson, Verdell Jones

    Reggie Jackson is a guy a lot of scouts want their team to take a risk on. The Boston College point guard very quick and that comes in handy in an era when you can’t touch guards on the perimeter. He’s a great athlete with a ridiculous seven-foot wingspan. He needs to develop a consistent…

  15. Can the Lakers, Celtics or Heat find any help in this draft?

    Jun 23, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The focus during the draft is often on the teams that saw little of the spotlight during the season — hello Minnesota! But what about some of the league’s top teams that need some tweaks to get a ring next season? The Miami Heat made it to the finals but it is clear their roster…

  17. LeBron may not have a ring, but he made Heat owners a lot of money

    Jun 21, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    LeBron Sunglasses

    Heat fans – well, actually mostly Heat haters — were beating up LeBron James after fourth quarter struggles in the finals. The Internet is no fan of the “don’t kick a man when he’d down” axiom. But the Heat’s management has been nothing but supportive. In part because they know if they want another banner…

  18. Pat Riley says he is not going to coach, break up “Big 3″

    Jun 21, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Pat Riley is not going to coach the Miami Heat next season. No, he is not going to break up the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh either. Riley had his annual end-of-season meeting with the media Tuesday and sounded like a guy who doesn’t like to lose but realizes the huge…

  19. Report: Pat Riley has sent word to nix trade offers for any of the Big 3

    Jun 19, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    As soon as the Heat started struggling, all the way back in November of 2010, the ideas started coming in. “What if they traded Chris Bosh?” The ideas continued all the way through the Finals including a few insane people talking about how they need to trade LeBron James. Sorry, I don’t care how much…

  20. Isiah Thomas: LeBron is going through what all stars do

    Jun 17, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Isiah Thomas is making some sense. So, clearly we are not talking trades. But don’t forget Thomas is a Hall of Fame point guard who led a team to multiple rings and knows what it takes to climb the mountain. He got smacked down by the Celtics plenty before he reached the summit. And LeBron…

  21. Chris Bosh talks Game 6 tears, emotion

    Jun 17, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    I came out of Game 6, and really these entire playoffs, liking Chris Bosh more than I did going in. And I liked him going in. On the court in the playoffs he showed how he can be a quality counterbalance to the Heat’s ball handling combination of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. When given…

  22. LeBron James, shockingly, will not film his scripted comedy this summer

    Jun 16, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Well, proof does now exist that LeBron James has at least a bit of awareness about his public image in the aftermath of his meltdown in the 2011 NBA Finals. From Jeff Sneider of the Daily Variety: Exclusive: LeBron James will have to wait at least another year to make his Hollywood debut. The Miami Heat…

    Jun 16, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Erik Spoelstra

    The one person that matters — Pat Riley — thinks Heat coach Erik Spoelstra did a good job this season. At least good enough to be back for a second season. That hasn’t stopped people outside the team from speculating about Spoelstra’s future and what kind of job he did. That includes Rick Barry, the…

  24. Stoudemire says LeBron needs to respect, connect like MJ

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:06 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Michael Jordan could be arrogant. He punched teammate Steve Kerr in the face during a practice. There were gambling and infidelity issues. Things might have been different for Jordan in today’s world of cell phone cameras and social media — not to mention blogs — but the fact is a lot of people knew about…

  25. LeBron needs to improve his game… but what aspect?

    Jun 15, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This much is clear, for LeBron James to reach his goal of a championship he is going to have to step his game up. The question is how? For a moment, we’re going to get away from the psychological aspect and what happened in the fourth quarters of the finals, the need of LeBron to…
