Thursday night at the Barclays Center a special pregame ceremony will be conducted prior to tip-off to retire the jersey of Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd. There is, however, another storyline that has captured the attention of many. The Miami Heat are coming to town, and will square off with the new-look Nets for the first time in the preseason. It will be the first time the back-to-back champions get to see the likes of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in black and white, and not Celtic green. In the offseason, the Boston Celtics lost Pierce, KG, and head coach Doc Rivers, as the three moved on to situations that left them with a better chance to win. LeBron James notices that, and remembers when teammate Ray Allen did the same only a year prior. The reaction from Celtics fans, as James sees it, was unfairly different this time around. "I think the first thing I thought was, 'Wow, Ray got killed for leaving Boston, and now these guys are leaving Boston,'" James...

If LeBron James wants to rope himself into the back-and-forth (or, for that matter, the silent treatment) that has accompanied the breakup of the Celtics’ Big Three, that’s just fine — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will take shots at him as well.

We all know how intense Kevin Garnett can be. LeBron James went on record to essentially call Garnett and teammate Paul Pierce hypocrites for the way they treated Ray Allen after leaving the Boston Celtics to join the Miami Heat last season last season. Garnett and Pierce, along with Doc Rivers and other Celtics’ players were quick to pass judgement on their former teammate (Allen...

The Miami Heat are visiting the Washington Wizards for some NBA Preseason action tonight, as I’m sure that our nation’s fine elected politicians needed a break from arguing over whose fault this shutdown is, and there’s no better distraction than LeBron James.

Kevin Garnett once famously said to Dwight Howard, "Paint your face, clown!"
Although I am no Garnett fan, I think this hilarious snippet of trash talk was well deserved and 100 percent on point regarding the Rockets center.
Dwight Howard has long been renowned for his sophomoric behavior on and off the court. Whether its donning Superman's cape...
Perception, is an extremely powerful thing.
There are some people who say it comes very close to reality in terms of importance, but one thing I will say is what people think is true is generally what they choose to believe. Even if it may not necessarily be the case.
That’s kind of how I feel about the anonymous player poll done by ESPN The Magazine, in which they asked current...
