Found February 22, 2013 on Larry Brown Sports:
Most people view Chris Bosh as a funny, awkward, and sensitive guy. Though he is an excellent player, he is considered the weakest of the Miami Heat’s top three players. And he’s certainly not viewed as the type to fire up his team with an emotional speech, right? Wrong. Miami Hurricanes basketball coach Jim Larranaga has been crediting Bosh for giving his team the “best five-minute speech” he has ever heard as one of the reasons for the program’s turnaround. Miami has been known as a football (and baseball) school the past three decades. The basketball team is generally average and has only made the NCAA Tournament once since 2003. But that has all changed this season; the team has gone 22-3 and is ranked No. 2 in the country. Over the past two weeks, Larranaga has been telling the story of Bosh’s inspirational speech delivered to the team during the summer of 2011: Two summers ago, Bosh played in a pickup game with some Hurricanes players and was disappointed with their lack...

Earlier today, Ira Winderman of the South Florida...

Nothing is going wrong professionally for the man, but when something seems to be going so right in one area of life how often does that mean that another area suffers? That appears to be the case for LeBron. Rumor has...

Does LeBron James care about what Jordan thinks more than he’s letting on?

I usually break it down on a higher level but today, to quote FM Blue, “I could fake the funk and get my point across, or drop a little science, leave you MC’s lost”. Number 23 (Michael Jordan) has been disrespected, and by someone who benefited from his career! The false 23, or in actuality number 6 (LeBron James), has disrespected the man that he capitalized off from...

LeBron James: Still good at basketball, banks in left-handed three-pointer (video)

While I am not completely sold on whether or not this LeBron James kid is a legitimate, bona fide NBA star, he nevertheless once again has left me amazed at his developing, almost above-average grasp on this game we call basketball. Early on the third quarter of the Miami Heat’s tilt against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, play was halted by a whistle and LeBron took advantage of...

State of the Heat: Beasts in the East

So much for their struggles against the East elite. Well, at least for one night. The Miami Heat entered Thursday's game at Chicago with an eight-game winning streak.

LeBron James Left Handed Bank Shot (GIF)

As you can tell by the 86-67 final score, the Chicago Bulls are no match for the Miami Heat without their star Derrick Rose.  LeBron James pretty much shoots over 60% from the field on a nightly basis these days.  Last night was no different.  James went 11-15 (73%), and started shooting with his left hand just to rub some salt in the wound.  This particular shot was after the...
