Not since LeBron James burst onto the national scene in the early 2000s has there been this sort of hype over a basketball player who has yet to play a college game.
It remains to be seen whether Andrew Wiggins will deliver on his tremendous promise during what is likely to be his lone season at Kansas. Wiggins, the 6-foot-8 Canadian phenom, is a preseason Player of the Year candidate according to several media outlets and has appeared on just about every preseason All-American and All-Big 12 team.
Wiggins will step into the spotlight James would have occupied had he ever set foot on a college campus. He went straight to the NBA Draft and was the No. 1 pick, a career path that changed before the 2006 season when the new collective bargaining agreement ushered in an age limit for potential NBA players. At least one year of college became the new norm for elite high school players throughout the country.
James ushered in a change in the way high school players a...

Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, who played basketball for part of one season at Ole Miss, made the bold claim in a recent interview that he could NBA superstar LeBron James in a game of 1-on-1.
When Charlotte Observer reporter Jonathan Jones asked who would win a 1-on-1 game between Hardy and LeBron, Hardy answered:
"How should I answer this question? ...I would...
LeBron James is in a very good place right now and I’m not talking about physically (even though Miami is a pretty damn good place), but I’m referring more to his mental state.
That’s what winning back-to-back Finals MVP awards will do for you. James was already regarded as the best player on the planet prior to winning a championship but now he finally realizes it.
LeBron James and a bunch of creative teens express themselves with the same intense passion LeBron brings to the game of basketball using his celebratory “LeBron face.”

Kevin Garnett responded to LeBron James on Thursday, telling the Miami Heat star to worry about his own team. The Heat played the Brooklyn Nets in the preseason on Thursday. The game between the two led to questions concerning Ray Allen facing his former Boston Celtics teammates, who were traded to the Nets over the […]
In case you’ve never heard of basketball, there’s this guy named LeBron James. He plays basketball, and he’s pretty damn good at what he does. At this stage in his career, there’s really no point into even looking at his numbers, because he gets more and more solid as the seasons go by, and he has the physical makings of someone who can play until he’s 50.
But, we love...
I have my own theory as to why LeBron James and Michael Jordan aren’t that personally close, but I’ll share that with you later. First, here’s what LeBron had to say about whether or not he wished he had more of a relationship with Jordan to Chris Broussard. “Ahhh, I mean, I don’t know. […]
Second-year shooting guard Bradley Beal torched the Miami Heat on Tuesday night with 29 points (in 31 minutes, no less) in a 100-82 victory for the Washington Wizards. But it was LeBron James who stole the show in the second quarter, throwing down back-to-back powerful fast break dunks that prove he’s ready for the season to begin.

A lot of debate has happened over whether or not LeBron James is a guy you'd want taking clutch shots if the game your life or all of humanity was on the line. Guys like Carmelo Anthony Kobe Bryant Dirk Nowitzki and others are people you're supposed to want to pick to take that shot in today's NBA. Michael Jordan Larry Bird Robert Horry and Reggie Miller are historic...
Andrew Wiggins has been called the best player to come out of high school since LeBron James. While James has not talked to Wiggins, the Miami Heat superstar forward has some sage advice for the KU freshman phenom.
Ric Bucher has a new gig at the Bleacher Report, and what better way to reintroduce yourself to the masses than by getting the LeBron stans riled up on a Thursday afternoon.
Bucher has taken a hit for this statement before, and once again reaffirmed it on Tuesday when he took to Twitter to proclaim that he’d take Derrick Rose as a player over LeBron James.
Bucher was nice enough...
Eric Griffin might not see the floor much this season for the Heat, if he even makes the team, but at least he brought a smile to the face of the best player in the NBA on Thursday.
Griffin, an undrafted rookie out of Campbell, opened eyes with his vertical leap during summer league and earned a training camp invitation. He has averaged only 2.0 points and 1.4 rebounds in five preseason...
The Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets are set to square off against each other in a preseason game Thursday night. However, it appears the trash talk has begun before the two teams even step on the floor.
When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics in favor of Miami, former teammates Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were extremely critical of him. Now that both Garnett and Pierce have left...
There were reports on Tuesday about college basketball phenom Andrew Wiggins who is attending the University of Kansas for his presumed one year of college ball getting $180 million from adidas if he signed with the shoe company when he is eligible to do so. This raised quite a few eyebrows because that would be by far the biggest shoe deal given to a player before he played in the...
Let’s all thank Greg Hardy for making it OK to never trust anything he says ever again.
Hardy, a defensive end for the Carolina Panthers, scoffed at a reporter’s question about whether he would beat Miami Heat forward LeBron James in a one-on-one basketball game. Hardy respectfully declined to challenge the supremacy of the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player and admitted that...

LeBron James and former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce have had a past of clashing heads — in a respective way — but recently, James spluttered with a few comments that were unsettling to the Brooklyn duo.
James, who is entering his 10th year in the NBA, gave a whole lot of criticism to Garnett and Pierce backing up his fellow teammate...
