    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…

    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…

    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.

    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,…

    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…

    Jun 18, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    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…

    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 —…

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    SAN ANTONIO — All season long, when the Heat would crank up their defense and make a run, other teams wilted. San Antonio stood up the the runs, executed, hit open shots and a lot of tough ones, and won 114-104 to take a 3-2 series lead. San Antonio will have two chances on the…

    After the Big Three (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh) and Ray Allen, which current Miami Heat player has posted the highest-scoring season in his career?

    Heat's James rebounds against Spurs' Leonard during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    LeBron James is the most questioned NBA champion ever. The snickers and jeering reached critical mass after he struggled through the Heat’s loss to the Spurs in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Can he elevate his game on the biggest stage? Is he afraid of the moment? Why does he crumble under pressure? It…

    Miami needed a better defensive effort and they got it — San Antonio shot 44.3 percent, the Heat forced 18 turnovers and allowed the Spurs just 5 offensive rebounds. They needed someone to step up besides LeBron James and they got Dwyane Wade in the hot tub time machine back to 2006 — 32 points,…

  19. Report: Doc Rivers, Clippers have mutual interest

    Jun 13, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Ronny Turiaf

    Two years ago, Doc Rivers signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Celtics. Even for a coach like Rivers, $7 million is on the high end, but so is a five-year contract. The Celtics, in effect, were paying extra for the stability of keeping a good coach around for so long – even…

    Jun 11, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat just have another gear that no NBA team can match. The kind of gear that puts on a 33-5 run against a very good Spurs team in the NBA Finals. But they have played these playoffs more like a Top Fuel dragster — they can’t sustain that level of play for an…

    Jun 10, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Juwan Howard, Dwyane Wade, Jarvis Varnado

    The Miami Heat surely have designs of contending for championships for the next several years, even though LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can each become free agents in any of the next three offseasons after this one. Of course, the Heat plan to keep all three, and at this point, losing them would…

    Spurs' Parker, Duncan, and Ginobili sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    It wasn’t so much the plan as the execution of it. Despite what the final score suggests, San Antonio did a number of things right in Game 2. They once again made things difficult for LeBron James — through two games he is averaging 17.5 points on 42.4 percent shooting. He started Sunday night 2-of-12…

    Asked after Game 1 how Danny Green had progressed since they played together for the Cavaliers, LeBron James responded, “Is that a serious question?” You can bet LeBron will get more questions now about his former Cleveland teammate, and now he’ll know they’re serious. Green shot 5-for-5 on 3-pointers and 6-for-6 overall to lead the…

    MIAMI — For nearly three quarters the San Antonio Spurs seemed to be doing it again — they held LeBron James to 2-of-12 shooting, they were getting back in transition and taking away the easy baskets the Heat thrive on, plus Danny Green was nailing threes like they were lay-ups.
