    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    The Miami Heat won 27 games in a row during the regular season, finishing the year with 66 wins and the best record in the NBA. They were pushed to seven games twice, but they are now the back-to-back NBA Champions. So it was a little stunning in the wake of the Heat win to…

    Ray Allen

    Ray Allen just opted in for an 18th NBA season at age 38. That decision was certainly made easier by the fact his 17th season ended with a championship ring, one the Miami Heat would not have won without him. Plus he is still effective — he averaged 10.9 points a game and shot 41.9…

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…

    Ray Allen hit the biggest shot of the Miami Heat’s season, you thought he was leaving? Allen probably could have made more money shopping himself around, but Allen has let the Heat know he is opting in and will stay with the team next season. Allen will make $3.2 million. If he opted out he…

  6. Ben McLemore the next Ray Allen? Victor Oladipo the next Dwyane Wade? How they answer could be telling

    Jun 22, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Ben McLemore

    Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo are the consensus top two shooting guards in the 2013 NBA Draft, but for very different reasons. McLemore is seen as a potential superstar who needs more on-court aggressiveness to really shine. Oladipo is seen as a great role player who maximizes his talent. Even a couple seemingly benign quotes…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:08 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest…

    Heat's James and Wade pause during a break in play against the Spurs during Game 7 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    The Miami Heat are back-to-back NBA Champions, but the San Antonio Spurs made them earn every last bit of it. It was a hard-fought if not always pretty Game 7, but LeBron James finished with 37 points and 12 rebounds to lead Miami to a 95-88 win. LeBron was rightfully named NBA Finals MVP. He…

    Miami Heat's LeBron James looks at a replay as he walks up court with Spurs' Duncan during the fourth quarter in Game 6 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    MIAMI — The Heat and the Spurs have engaged in an epic Finals battle which will crown one of them as champions by the time Thursday night is through. In a series where neither team has been able to string together two consecutive victories, it’s even more impossible than usual to predict how one game…

  11. A look back at LeBron’s Game 7s… he wins when he gets help

    Jun 20, 2013, 9:14 AM EST

    Miami Heat's James runs downcourt after scoring against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    LeBron James has never before been in an NBA Finals Game 7. Which isn’t a shock, there are not many of those. But he has been in four Game 7s before, and when you look back at them you see a pretty unmistakable pattern — he puts up good numbers, but he only wins when…

    NBA Finals Spurs Heat Basketball

    PBT’s own Brett Pollakoff tweeted this out when the Heat were down 5 with: 28 seconds left and the Heat had called a timeout. “Fans in Miami heading for the exits.” Thousands of them. Not anywhere near a majority, but enough to reinforce the stereotype. Plenty (again, far from all) fans in Miami fit the…

  14. Game 6 was not Gregg Popovich’s best night

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    Gregg Popovich is the best coach in basketball right now. One of the best of all time. He has four rings and built a culture in San Antonio that has them in NBA Finals 14 years apart and with consistent 50+ win seasons in between. But he is not perfect. He made a couple decisions…

  15. LeBron calls Game 6 “best game I’ve ever been a part of”

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    That was an epic Game 6. There was great play from both sides, huge shots by Ray Allen and Tony Parker and LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard and… I could go on and on. The players knew it was a great game, too. These are some highlights from the postgame press conferences where they talk…

  16. LeBron James takes over when headband comes off

    Jun 19, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    LeBron James

    With the Heat season on the brink LeBron James needed to change things up… He ditched the headband. Not exactly ditched, but late in the game LeBron’s headband was knocked off — and then he went off. LeBron played a key stretch of the fourth quarter then all of overtime without it. Couper Moorehead of…

    That was as great a fourth quarter, as great an NBA Finals fame as you are likely to see. Miami started the quarter down 10 but LeBron James goes on a tear after getting his headband knocked off. The Heat come all the way back to take the lead, then Tony Parker drains a three…

  18. LeBron James gets another triple-double, now favorite for Finals MVP

    Jun 19, 2013, 4:35 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    You’ll have to excuses ESPN for not mentioning LeBron James achieving a triple-double during the Heat’s 103-100 win over the Spurs until Game 6 ended. LeBron grabbed his 10th rebound – capping a 32-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound, three-steal game – on Chris Bosh’s block of Tony Parker’s jumper with 31 seconds left, setting off a whirlwind…

    At shootaround on Tuesday before Game 6, Chris Bosh said that hot shooting Spur Danny Green wasn’t going to get clean looks at threes. Then, with the Spurs having one last shot in overtime to tie the game, Bosh made sure his words were good by blocking a Green desperation three to tie the game.…

    Jun 19, 2013, 2:06 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Ray Allen faced a potentially awkward moment before he even played his first game with the Miami Heat. Not only were the Heat facing his old team, the Boston Celtics, his new teammates were receiving their 2012 championship rings. Miami had won a hard-fought seven-game series over Allen’s Celtics on its way to the title,…

    MIAMI — The Spurs were on the brink of winning a championship. With 28 seconds remaining in the fourth, they held a five-point lead, were on a 10-2 run over the last four minutes, and fans were heading for the exits while arena staffers lined the court to rope off the crowd in preparation for…

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    Ray Allen is amazingly, incredibly clutch. This is exactly why the Heat wanted him from Boston. What a huge shot. If the Heat win this series, that will go down as one of the greatest shots in Finals history. Allen and LeBron James will get credit for making 3-pointers to send Game 6 to overtime,…

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    That was a great game. And Game 7 sets up to be something special. For three quarters San Antonio’s execution was too much for Miami and the Spurs entered the fourth up 10 (75-65) and just 12 minutes away from a title. Tim Duncan had been a force, with countermoves spinning Chris Bosh around and…

  24. Report: Ben McLemore was out of shape for recent workouts

    Jun 18, 2013, 5:59 PM EST

    West Virginia v Kansas

    Kansas’ Ben McLemore was pretty much a top three pick on everybody’s board a month ago, but he may be sliding down some boards right now. In part that is because the smooth-shooting guard out of Kansas didn’t help his cause in some recent workouts, reports Chad Ford at ESPN.com (Insider). Multiple sources told me…

    Jun 18, 2013, 1:24 PM EST

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    Danny Green has been on fire, setting a record with 25 three pointers made — he’s passed Ray Allen and has the record for most threes in the NBA Finals. He just doesn’t seem to miss, having shot 65.8 percent from deep this series. What is stunning is the quality of looks he’s getting —…
