  1. LeBron James: The Golden Boy No More

    Jul 9, 2010, 12:16 AM EDT

    LeBron James came into this league as the most hyped prospect in the history of the NBA. The first three years of his career were little more than a prolonged honeymoon, an open celebration of how good LeBron already was and how good he would someday become.  The next two years of LeBron’s career were…

  2. Can the Miami Heat win it all this season?

    Jul 8, 2010, 10:56 PM EDT

    Already you were hearing it — guys were saying it on ESPN and talk radio shows across the nation even before LeBron made his announcement. If the Heat don’t win it all this year, it’s a failure. That’s a bunch of manure. Winning a championship takes a lot of things, including luck with injuries and…

  3. Uh-oh Miami: Heat pull planned full page welcome ad from Miami Herald at last minute

    Jul 8, 2010, 8:34 PM EDT

    Read into this whatever you want. Could be nothing, could be everything. LeBron-to-Miami may not be happening. Heat has canceled a full-page welcome ad in The Miami Herald. This time I’m serious. That is from Greg Cote, Miami Herald columnist. Ads get pulled from papers all the time for a lot of reasons. The official…

  4. If not Miami, then where?

    Jul 8, 2010, 7:35 PM EDT

    All signs point to there being a South Beach party tonight thanks to LeBron James. Because there ain’t no party like a South Beach party. No, seriously. There isn’t. But what if LeBron is not going to Miami? What if this was all an elaborate smoke screen? What if he just walks up the podium…

  5. Heat near deal to move Beasley sign that LeBron to Miami no smokescreen

    Jul 8, 2010, 4:28 PM EDT

    At this point in the funhouse of mirrors that are the rumors of LeBron James’ next move, reality has been hard to tell from dead ends and distorted reflections. Everything, every reaction looked like it could be the way out. But this afternoon, one tangible piece of evidence came though — the Heat are working…

  6. Report: LeBron James planning big weekend party in Miami

    Jul 8, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    There’s going to be a huge, star-studded party by the pool at the W Hotel in Miami this weekend. True, that happens every weekend, but this one is going to be a little different: LeBron James is throwing it. US Weekly has the scoop: LeBron James has rented six cabanas at the W Hotel South…

  7. LeBron could make more money in Miami than Cleveland – thank you state taxes

    Jul 8, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Life in Miami is good. Warm weather all year around. Great beaches. Amazing clubs. Fantastic restaurants. Beautiful people. LeBron James has to be enticed by all that. Plus he would make more money in Miami. Yes, Cleveland can pay him more, for the first five years of the contract that comes to about $4 million…

  8. Dwyane Wade wants Jason Williams to run the point for the Heat

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Regardless of whether LeBron James graces Miami with his presence, the Heat will need to fill out their roster with bargain bin talent. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will eat up a lot of cap space on their own, which means Miami just doesn’t have room to go after many mid-level players. That’s why Jason…

  9. LeBron's choices: It seems like Miami now, but in this drama things change

    Jul 8, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We don’t know. We won’t really know until some time between 9 and 9:15 pm Eastern tonight. What we have now is drama. Manufactured drama. And that makes every rumor suspect — if you were trying to create drama for a show like this, you’d leak different things to different people. You’d keep everybody guessing,…

  10. Reports: LeBron James leaning heavily toward Miami

    Jul 8, 2010, 2:04 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all on the same team. Wow. But it is looking more and more that way. Sources have told Alan Hahn at Newsday as well as the well-connected Chris Broussard at ESPN that LeBron is leaning heavily toward joining Wade and Bosh in Miami. Nothing is certain. The ground…

  11. Stan Van Gundy speaks for us all — does a basketball player need a television special?

    Jul 7, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    We’re all sick of the hype. Oh, it’s working — LeBron is getting exactly what he wanted out of this. But we’re still sick of it. The always frank Stan Van Gundy is with us, people. As told to the Orlando Sentinel. “It takes 15 seconds to say, ‘I’ve decided to stay in Cleveland,’ but…

  12. Dwyane Wade says Chris Bosh coming to Miami was key to his return

    Jul 7, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh went on ESPN Wednesday morning and made it official — they are both going to be playing for the Miami Heat next season. There was nothing else shocking in their interview, but they confirmed things already suggested in the media. Like that Wade seriously considered playing for his hometown Chicago…

  13. LeBron reportedly considering making it three amigos in Miami

    Jul 7, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    What was laughed at a week ago as impossible is suddenly looking like it could happen — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team in Miami. A true superteam. The three amigos together in Miami. ESPN’s Chris Broussard — the reporter with the best connections to LeBron James right-hand-man Maverick Carter —…

  14. What does Wade/Bosh pairing mean for LeBron James? It doesn't help Cleveland's chances.

    Jul 7, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are teaming up in Miami. The Eastern Conference is getting tougher at the top, the road to the finals and a shot at the ring James desperately wants is getting harder. That leaves LeBron James with a tough choice: Stay at home in Cleveland with a good team that has…

  15. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to team up in Miami

    Jul 7, 2010, 8:24 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will team up in Miami to form the core of a team that could contend for a title. It has looked like things were leaning that way for several days, and the pair went on ESPN Wednesday and confirmed the news. The pair can sign the deals as soon as…

  16. Winderman: Dwyane Wade is looking for a friend… one that looks a lot like Chris Bosh

    Jul 6, 2010, 11:05 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade is looking for a friend. Perhaps you can be his friend. There are a few caveats. He would like his new friend to be at least 6 feet 8. He would like him to possess a low-post game. And he would like him to arrive in the next day or two. For now,…

  17. Smart money bet: LeBron stays in Cleveland, Wade and Bosh to Miami

    Jul 6, 2010, 6:49 PM EDT

    We don’t know. There is no 100 percent. But the signs are starting to point the same way, especially when you take a step back and look at them in total — LeBron James re-signs in Cleveland, while Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh team up in Miami. Take these tweets from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski: Cavs…

  18. Signs pointing to Wade in Miami, Chris Bosh joining him. Unless Bosh goes to Cleveland with LeBron.

    Jul 6, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets are convinced that the Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh tandem is headed to Miami. Ira Winderman — the most connected guy with the Heat — is saying it looks like Wade will return to South Beach. But now reports are out there that the Cavaliers have a sign-and-trade in place with the Raptors…

  19. Dwyane Wade, Micky Arison hang out together in Miami

    Jul 5, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    Here’s what we know: Dwyane Wade and Heat owner Micky Arison were spotted together talking at American Airlines Arena on Monday afternoon. That we got from our own Ira Winderman, writing for the Sun Sentinel. We also know the Heat never really made a big, formal presentation to Wade as was done by Chicago and…

  20. Trail Blazers talking to Randy Pfund about general manager vacancy

    Jul 5, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    The man who was the general manager when the Miami Heat won the NBA title — meaning the man who drafted Dwyane Wade — is the guy Portland is targeting to be their next GM. Randy Pfund is next up on the clock, according to multiple reports. The Blazers had first interviewed and talked to…

  21. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh may be making documentary of free agency

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Just what we all have hoped for — the chance to relive this summer’s free agency over and over and over… Camera crews have been following Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh through the free agency process. Filming them going to meetings, flying around the country and having dinner with each other in Chicago. Of course,…

  22. Free agent bargain bin: Udonis Haslem

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    There remains a possibility — however slim — that the Miami Heat could suit up Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh next season. However, in order to do so, Miami would likely have to renounce Udonis Haslem’s Bird rights, which would prevent the team from going over the cap in order to re-sign Miami’s…

  23. Dwyane Wade back in Miami — for his youth camp and to meet with owner

    Jul 5, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade is back in Miami. For four days. And not to sign any contracts. He flew back into the town begging him to stay as a player not to make any kind of announcement about his future, but to be at the Dwyane Wade All Star Camp, his youth camp (ages 7 to 18).…

  24. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are waiting on Chris Bosh's decision

    Jul 4, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    A significant ramification of all of these free agents being free together and wanting to play with each other is the timing. If you’ll notice, every one of them is taking their sweet time. Joe Johnson was offered the max-max from Atlanta, and is still waiting to see if he can justify going with New…

  25. Teams are interested in Roger Mason for who he's been, but is that who he'll be next season?

    Jul 3, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    When the San Antonio Spurs picked up Roger Mason Jr. two years ago in free agency, it was an absolute steal. Mason seemed like an ideal fit alongside the Spurs’ big three; as a knock-down shooter who could fill in at either guard spot and handle the ball a bit, Roger fit the Spurs’ needs…
