There is one thing everyone should remember when it comes to LeBron James: He is the best.
As his almost-unanimous MVP award reminded us, James’ status as the most dominant individual player in the game is unmatched. It says a lot that so many people are wringing their hands over whether a do-it-all Kevin Durant can carry the Thunder to the NBA Finals, considering that is exactly what James did in Cleveland. For Durant, such an effort would be superhuman. For James, that is just another day at the office.
It therefore makes total sense that the Heat would consider assigning James to defend Bulls guard Nate Robinson in Game 2 of the second-round series, as the Heat reportedly have discussed. If the Heat need to stop somebody, the obvious course of action is to put the league’s most versatile defender on that player and move on to other matters. That solves that.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if I matched up with [Robinson],” James told reporters on Wednesday, with what one can only assume...
BEST OF MAXIM

BULL GOES BIG TIME
One of the best feel-good stories of this years playoffs has been the outstanding the play of Chicago Bulls point guard Nate Robinson, a guy who makes up with heart what he lacks in height. Robinson is one of the most prolific scorers in this league when he gets hot, and can make shots from literally anywhere on the floor, and probably thinks he’s better than he actually is. The...
LeBron James has improved his game so much that he really has no weakness. His defense is outstanding, his passing and rebounding is stellar like usual, he’s improved his offensive efficiency, and he’s even become a good outside shooter. But the one area James feels he needs to improve is free throw shooting.
James is a career 74.7 percent free throw shooter. His highest percentage...
LeBron James wore specially-designed Nike shoes, dubbed the "Nike LeBron X MVP," for the Heat's Game 1 showdown against the Chicago Bulls.
LeBron James had the shoes, but he didn't have the jumper with this airball in Miami's Game 1 loss to the Chicago Bulls.
Midway through the second quarter of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals featuring the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat, LeBron James and Nate Robinson both go for a loose ball. Only difference is, LeBron outweighs Nate by a good 100 pounds by my guesstimation, and he kinda uses Nate Robinson like his own slip [...]The post LeBron Dives On Nate Robinson Like He’s A Slip ...
Things are starting to get a little chippy in the Miami Heat/Chicago Bulls 2nd round playoff series as both LeBron James and Joakim received technicals fouls for a collision in the final seconds of the first quarter.
As LeBron was getting ready to drive, he was called for an offensive foul but still continued to dribble into the paint where he tied up by Bulls center Joakim Noah...
Before the 2010-2011 season we were all privileged to a show titled ‘The Decision’ in which Lebron James announced he was going to ‘take his talents to South Beach’. Several months later, the Knicks completed with the Denver Nuggets and other teams to acquire Carmelo Anthony.
Do you ever wonder what the NBA, particularly the Knicks, would have been like if Lebron James chose...

As the Miami Heat cruised to easy victory over the Chicago Bulls in game two of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series, LeBron James might have dropped one of the best assists of his career.
Watch as LBJ finds Dwyane Wade on a beautiful backdoor pass which he lays up-and-in:
Today the NBA unveiled its newest “We Are All Watching” video, starring all five feet and nine inches of Chicago Bulls’ point guard Nate Robinson. It’s a big ad for such a small guy.
What LeBron James has done is simply amazing, and he deserves comparisons to the greatest players ever. But what’s wrong with this passage by Jason Reid of the Washington Post?
“I would have him [James] right behind Jordan and Chamberlain,” a smart Western Conference general manager told me Monday. “If you had a time machine, and were starting a franchise right now, I would...

The Chicago Bulls didn’t need Derrick Rose, Loul Deng or Kirk Hinrich to beat the defending NBA champion Miami Heat on Monday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Bulls defeated the Heat 93-86 to go up 1-0 in their
Nearly every NBA Playoffs brings an X factor. There is a moment, a play or a comment that holds the potential to either define or change the direction of circumstances. For some teams that factor can boost your chances or it can lead to your demise. For the Boston Celtics it was age. Their two best players are riding out their final seasons in the league and the Celtics will inevitably...
