Found June 01, 2013 on The Scores Report:
PLAYERS: LeBron JamesDwyane Wade
TEAMS: Miami Heat
As with competitive NBA playoff series, we’re seeing a back and forth between two excellent teams, and each game seems to produce a new conventional wisdom that the media will beat to death. The latest has Lebron James winning these games on his own in “Cleveland” mode, with Chris Both and Dwyane Wade doing their best impressions of disappearing magicians. As with every “theme’ coming out of one game, things can change very quickly. The main characteristics of Lebron’s days in Cleveland were games like this when he couldn’t miss a shot, often followed by big games where he would clank up threes at the worst time and then wilt under pressure. Lebron is now much more mature and consistent, but there’s no guarantee that he can continue his torrid shooting in game 6. Also, everyone is ripping on Dwyane Wade as he seems to age right before our eyes, but Wade is still capable of scoring outbursts that can help carry the Heat. Then we have Chris Anderson. He should have been tossed in game...

NBA Fashion: Dwyane Wade, The Human Torch??

Dwyane Wade a.k.a Flash reminded me of Johnny Storm the “Human Torch” from “Fantastic Four” with his chic outfit for Game 3 of the 2013 Eastern Conference finals, as he coordinated in super bright orange-red hues. Dwyane wore a $1197 Gucci Silk Ribbed cardigan, with matching $518 Gucci orange Leno-Weave Riding Trousers, and collar shirt. D-Wade added flair to his lustrous...

Why LeBron James Really Should Consider Playing QB

Thanks to former Redskins QB Joe Theismann, the Internet just about blew up with the notion that reigning league MVP LeBron James could potentially play the same position one day. With as big of a freak athlete Bron Bron is, it got us thinking, “Could he actually be successful at it?” Though there’s about a [...]

LeBron James: "I don't complain about calls too much"

Following Saturday's game 6 loss to the Pacers, when discussing his technical foul for running the complete length of the court after being called for a rare foul, LeBron James said this to the media: “I had to run down the court to stop from being kicked out,” James said. “I thought it was a pretty bad call. I don’t complain about calls too much. I thought me and Hibbert...

LeBron James says he went Cleveland on the Indiana Pacers

LeBron James found a honest way to sum up Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals. Two-thirds of the Big 3 were having problems. Dwyane Wade struggled netting only 10 points after going 3-for-8. Chris Bosh could not catch fire. Bosh had seven points on 3-for-7 shooting James was forced to lean on Udonis Haslem and Chris Andersen for support. When all else fails, James told the...

Here’s a supercut of LeBron James best flopping moments

Let’s face it…we all know that NBA players flop and one star that has been guilty of that sin is the Miami Heat’s LeBron James. After his floptastic performance against the Indiana Pacers in game four, the fine folks over at RSLVTs.com decided to put together a video supercut of LeBron’s best flops: *** LeBron James best flopping moments [With Leather]

LeBron James Not Fined When he Made 'No Homo' Comment! Double Standard in the NBA?

Roy Hibbert has been handed a $75K fine for his comments during the post-game press conference Saturday night following Game 6. The world expected it to happen the second the curse word and gay slur slipped out, and sure enough it happened. What the world probably did not expect was for some enterprising individual to discover a video clip on YouTube of LeBron James making the...

Missner's Manifesto: Cavalier Choices

(David Richard-USA TODAY Sports) For the first time since LeBron James left, the Cavaliers won something. While it may have been a winning ticket to the worst lottery in years, it was enough for the Gilbert family to celebrate raucously (and somewhat embarrassingly). What should Cleveland do with the pick? I covered the Cavaliers for RotoWire this past season, so I have a pretty...

Cowardly NBA won’t do anything about dirty ‘Birdman’ tactics

Chris Andersen should not have finished last night’s Game 5 playoff game between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. The officials screwed up by not ejecting him from the game after knocking Tyler Hansbrough to the floor, then shoving him a second time prior to officials separating the two. Hansbrough did nothing to warrant his technical. Andersen did receive a flagrant 1 call...

LeBron on D Wade & Bosh: “Obviously They’re Both Struggling”

I thought this might happen at some point with the Heat, just not so quickly. It is more about Wade than Bosh. Bosh isn’t the #2, so he has to sort of figure out ways to get himself involved. Wade is the guy who needs to take the pressure of LeBron, so he doesn’t have to become Cleveland Bron. That isn’t happening right now and you can tell it is weighing LeBron’s mind. “We...

Full Court Press: LeBron James Launches Internship Program, Old People With Swag, Former Diva Ashley Massaro

Click on photo to read more about an internship with LeBron I’m really not sure what this internship could lead to, but it would be pretty sweet to work for a LeBron owned entity. I highly doubt that you’d ever even see LeBron, but the idea is still pretty sweet. If you think about all the professional athletes out there LeBron would be up there for internships. The Press Soldier...
