BEST OF MAXIM
LeBron James couldn't finish Game 4 because of leg cramps, and several NHL players questioned his toughness through tweets.
A bizarre sequence of events over the weekend led to two women, including Dwyane Wade's ex-wife, to be arrested on misdemeanor charges.
MIAMI -- LeBron James hasn't been this close to a championship since his Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary team beat Kettering Alter on March 22, 2003 for the Ohio Division II title.
The Miami Heat haven't been this near a title since exactly six years ago Wednesday, when they defeated Dallas in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to wrap up the 2006 crown.
Put them both together, and Thursday...
MIAMI Forget for a moment the painful grimace on the face of LeBron James. When he was carried off the court late Tuesday by teammate Juwan Howard and trainer Jay Sabol, isn't that how an enduring moment from a defining career turn, rich with symbolism, is supposed to look?
It appeared that way Wednesday, the day after, when the buildup to Game 5 revolved less around the minutiae...
Or, I ran into Shane Battier at the worst bar in downtown Cleveland* back in February** and we had a nice chat.
It was February 16, a Thursday. The Heat were in town to play (crush) the Cavs the next day, and were probably staying in a nearby hotel (Key Tower Marriot? Who knows.). So Battier walks in and sits at the bar to get a bite to eat.
When I saw him I was of course like, “Hey...
Some of the Heat are offering high praise to coach Erik Spoelstra as he leads Miami in its second straight NBA Finals appearance. Veteran guard Juwan Howard lauded Spoelstra's role in helping the team blend together, from stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh meshing on the court to veterans like Howard and Mike Miller finding their roles. "It's challenging...
In another sad notch in the belt of domestic family affairs, the ex-wife of Dwyane Wade cut the fool in Dolton, IL over the weekend by delaying the departure of the former couples children on their trip back to their permanent home of Miami, FL.
Siohvaughn Funches-Wade lost custody of the two boys in March 2011 to Dwyane after a contentious legal battle.
MIAMI -- When LeBron James arrived in Miami before last season, Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo had a presentation of show and tell.
McAdoo is one of the few guys on the planet who at least has somewhat walked in similar shoes as James. Likes James, he has won an NBA MVP and a scoring title (actually, three). Like James, he had toiled for many years without winning a title. And...
Does any player in the NBA look more awkward trying to fire up the fans than Chris Bosh? Yeah, I get that he had a great sequence where he dove for a loose ball, scored on a hook shot, and took a charge, but come on, dude looks like a squawking pterodactyl when he does that.
I guess I should lay off him because it’s much better for the Heat when he’s feeling it rather than...
Dwyane Wade has retained the services of famed trainer Tim Grover.
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James and the Miami Heat are one win away from an NBA championship.
James had 26 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds before dealing with leg cramps late, Dwyane Wade scored 25 and the Heat rallied from 17 points down to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-98 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
The Heat now lead the best-of-seven series 3-1, and could...
One win and the Thunder are going to be feeling pretty good about themselves. Kind of hard to process, considering what's gone on the last three games as the Thunder have gone from favorite to feeble.
That's why they have to look at tonight's game in Miami as a unique situation, mutually exclusive from the other four games already played. Sure, this one...
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are now only one win away from an NBA Championship.
Despite Russell Westbrook’s 43 points, the Heat went on to a 104-98 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder giving them a commanding 3-1 series lead, something no other NBA team has been able to overcome in NBA finals history.
LeBron James had 26 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds before being...
