    All the talk of the 2012 Team USA basketball squad and how it compares to the Dream Team had me thinking back today to the 1960 Olympic team — a Hall of Fame team with Jerry West and Oscar Robertson among others. Sometimes, we forget just how good Robinson was — career 25 points per…

    Dwight Howard

    What LeBron James did, what Carmelo Anthony did, what Dwight Howard is doing — that does not sit well with an older generation of players. Say, for example Oscar Robertson. Mr. I averaged a triple-double for an entire season. One of the game’s 50 greatest players (easily). Robertson — one of the trail blazers of…

    World Basketball Festival

    In 1964, the players for the NBA All-Star Game refused to leave the locker room at the famed Boston Gardens.

    Thursday night, with a turnaround jumper from the right block area, Kobe Bryant became the youngest player ever to score 26,000 points in the NBA. Bryant is 32 years, 80 days old, which means he got to the milestone a few weeks a head of Wilt Chamberlain. Now, if you want to go by games…

  7. Oscar Robertson would ask that you kindly get off LeBron's back

    Sep 5, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    There’s a chance, remote as it may be, that LeBron James may average a triple-double this season. And yet, even in dominating the league with spectacular play, he will be booed, hated upon, reviled for his decision to leave Miami. But the man that invented the triple double, NBA Hall-of-Fame legend Oscar Robertson thinks people…

  8. LeBron James is sort of flirting with historical greatness

    Feb 8, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT
