  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Rick Barry say’s LeBron’s coaches are problem, Rick Carlisle disagrees

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Heat extend qualifying offer to Mario Chalmers

    Jun 15, 2011, 4:55 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    The Miami Heat have extended a qualifying offer to third-year point guard Mario Chalmers, according to the Associated Press. Which is the smart thing to do if they have any intention of keeping him. While in theory Chalmers could sign the qualifying offer, what will really happen is this allows Chalmers to explore the market…

  7. Bosh’s ex drags him into court over “Basketball Wives”

    Jun 15, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    One of these days I’ll have to watch an episode of “Basketball Wives” on VH1 to see what people are talking about. Right after I finish my lifelong dream of building the Eiffel Tower out of toothpicks. The mother of Chris Bosh’s child really wants to be on that show and enjoy all the perks…

  8. Video: 10 best dunks of the NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 3:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s take one more video trip back to the NBA finals, because these teams were throwing it down. Literally. There were some fantastic dunks. That includes LeBron actually attacking the rim (so, you know, not stuff from the fourth quarter) plus some Dirk Nowitzki being Dirk Nowtizki. Enjoy.

  9. Can Dallas repeat? Yes, but the path will be harder.

    Jun 15, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Dallas Mavericks are basking in the glow of their first ever championship — taking part in a championship parade, going to the bathroom with the Larry O’Brien trophy and getting arrested. You know, all the good stuff. But the question has already come up — can they do it again. The Mavericks think so.…

  10. Kidd says LeBron gets “bumps, bruises” now, rings later

    Jun 15, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Jason Kidd knows about being on the doorstep and losing. He led the New Jersey Nets to the finals two straight seasons playing some fantastic ball, only to run into the buzzsaw that was the Kobe/Shaq Lakers and the Duncan/Robinson Spurs. He was patient, kept evolving his game (as his athleticism faded his outside shot…

  11. A-Rod says we’re being too hard on LeBron, winning rings is hard

    Jun 15, 2011, 10:12 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Alex Rodriguez, maybe more than any other pro athlete, has walked a mile in LeBron James’ shoes. And he wants us to back off LeBron. A-Rod is the best player of his generation (arguably, if you want, but he has put up insane numbers). He is the 12-time All-Star, five-time home run leader who could…

  12. Video: Top 10 plays of the 2011 NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    These were a damn good finals. Close games, plenty of drama, dramatic comeback, some feistiness — these finals between the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks had it all. And they had some great plays. The fine folks at NBA.com compiled these for us and we bring them to you for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy watching…

  13. Winderman: Wade says he, LeBron are similar, can play together

    Jun 14, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (L) and teammate LeBron James wait to leave the stadium after losing the NBA Championship to the Dallas Mavericks in Miami

    MIAMI — Yes, Dwyane Wade said Tuesday as the Heat emptied out their lockers at AmericanAirlines arena, he and LeBron James play similar styles. And no, Wade said, they’re not changing. Amid post-Finals debate about whether the duo possess complementary or redundant styles, an examination exacerbated by Jeff Van Gundy’s on-camera musing during the NBA…

  14. Spoelstra’s job expected to be safe

    Jun 14, 2011, 6:34 PM EDT

    Erik Spoelstra

    Given Heat coach Erik Spoelstra’s youth and relative lack of experience, people questioned whether he was the right person to coach the star-studded Miami Heat ever since the day of the “Decision.” Every time the Heat went through any sort of tough stretch this season, Spoelstra’s job security was questioned, and those questions are getting…

  15. LeBron congratulates Dallas on NBA crown

    Jun 14, 2011, 4:42 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James issued this statement on his Web site Tuesday afternoon. Congratulations Mavericks on the championship …especially Dirk, J.Kidd, & Terry who have done so much for our league and worked so hard to get here. They deserve all the credit for what they have accomplished. Thank you to all my family, friends and especially…

  16. No NBA fines, suspensions from Game 6 announced

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Interesting note from Henry Abbott at TrueHoop — the NBA has yet to announce if there will be suspensions at the start of next season for the mini-altercation between Udonis Haslem and DeShawn Stevenson during Game 6. On one level I hope there are not any suspensions. It was a minor thing, some pushing and…

  17. LeBron talks about haters, his play in finals

    Jun 14, 2011, 2:07 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Say what you will about him, LeBron James did not shy away from the assembled media on Tuesday and took on the tough questions about his game and his post game comments. It was those comments — saying about all the people who rooting against him “tomorrow they have to wake up and have the…

  18. Break up Miami’s “big three?” That’s just stupid.

    Jun 14, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    Be clear about this up front — the Miami Heat are not doing this. Pat Riley is sane. But there are people out there on talk radio and the Web – including ESPN’s Bill Simmons — saying it is time to break up the Miami trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh (to…

  19. PBT Tuesday morning one liners (with extra LeBron)

    Jun 14, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    The Governor of Ohio made the Dallas Mavericks all honorary Ohioans for beating the Miami Heat. It went away during the Eastern Conference finals, but LeBron James is bringing back the chalk toss next season. Here is someone sticking up for LeBron James and his choice to move in the face of all the hate…

  20. Report: Miami players joined Dallas post-title party

    Jun 14, 2011, 11:05 AM EDT

    Erick Dampier, Chris Wilcox, Greg Monroe

    It’s bad enough Heat fans were selling out their seats to Mavericks fans, but now this? After the Mavs clinched their first ever NBA title on the Miami Heat’s floor, celebrating in their building, the team went to the trendy Liv nightclub (inside the Fontainebleau Hotel) to party — Mark Cuban rented the place out…

  21. How did all those Mavericks fans get into Game 6?

    Jun 14, 2011, 10:29 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Mavs owner Mark Cuban said it best after the game: “Our fans punked the s— out of Miami’s fans.” It was obvious in the building with a fair amount of blue shirts sprinkled in among the white, especially close to the Dallas bench area. It became louder and more obvious as the game went on…

  22. Heat looking to add Samuel Dalembert?

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT

    DALEMBERT_SAMUEL

    This isn’t a rumor based on sources so much as it is one based on common sense. As well as Joel Anthony played as a starting center against both Boston and Chicago, the Heat desperately need a true center who can protect the rim, finish plays, and provide both size and athleticism on both ends…

  23. Zydrunas Ilgauskas considering retirement

    Jun 13, 2011, 8:10 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Via the twitter account of Chris Thomasson: Having talked to Zydrunas Ilgauskas for a while during conference finals and reading between lines, wouldn’t be surprised if he will retire. The 36-year old Ilgauskas was the starting center and a key part of the 66-win 2008-09 Cleveland Cavaliers, but his numbers fell off a cliff when…

  24. Is Erik Spoelstra’s job in danger? It shouldn’t be.

    Jun 13, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    In Miami, the blame has to go somewhere. LeBron James is getting a heaping share. So are all the role players. But you can’t fire LeBron and in the NBA when teams don’t live up to expectations it is the coach whose job is on the line. Fair or not. There are those wondering if…

  25. Mark Cuban may not do championship rings

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:56 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Tyson Chandler, Brendan Haywood, Shawn Marion, Jason Terry, all those Dallas Mavericks veterans who have chased rings through their entire career… they may not get them. Oh, they get to call themselves champions, they get the chip and the bragging rights. But on NBA TV after the game last night Mark…
