LeBron James, please participate in this year’s NBA slam dunk contest — sincerely, every NBA fan.
James threw down a monster alley-oop in Memphis off a dish from point guard Mario Chalmers. James may be competing with Gerald Green for best hops in the NBA.
James finished the game with a double-double, scoring twenty points with 10 rebounds and six assists. The Heat lost 104-86 to Memphis. The Heat are now 5-2 on the season. The Grizzlies stand at 5-1.
Perhaps the best part of the video of James’ dunk is how little of a reaction it got out of Memphis’ play-by-play announcer Pete Pranica. To him, it was just another play that tied the game.
BEST OF MAXIM
No matter how you feel about LeBron, one thing can’t be denied, the man has crazy hops. Last night against the Memphis Grizzlies he started the fast break and received a pass from Mario Chalmers that saw LeBron go up, step on Tony Allen’s shoulders and even blow a kiss [...]
ATLANTA - LeBron James and Josh Smith banged knees in the first half, causing James to come up limping. But that did not prevent James from nearly recording a triple-double and hitting a big shot. James collected 21 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, and he made the shot that counted most, a 20-foot jumper with 13 seconds left, to lead the Miami Heat to a 95-89 win over the...
LeBron James scored 21 points, including the clinching jumper with 13.6 seconds remaining, and Miami knocked off the Atlanta Hawks 95-89 on Friday night for the Heat's fourth straight win.
Jeff Teague hit consecutive 3-pointers as the Hawks rallied from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter. But Josh Smith, on an awful night, missed two free throws with just over a minute...
HOUSTON -- Even with a collection of ballyhooed offensive stars, the Miami Heat earned the 2011-12 NBA title by mustering exceptional defensive intensity during the regular season and ratcheting it up in the playoffs. So far this season, however, the Heat's defense hardly could be considered passable. Miami is ranked second in offensive efficiency for a reason, though, and...
LeBron James scored a season-high 38 points, Chris Bosh had 24
points and 10 rebounds, and the Miami Heat rallied to beat the
Houston Rockets 113-110 on Monday night.
The Miami Heat didn't have much trouble with James Harden in last season's NBA Finals.
This time, they should expect him to be much more involved in a different uniform.
Facing Harden for the first time since winning the NBA title, the Heat will try to minimize his impact again and make it six straight wins against the Houston Rockets on Monday night (8 p.m. ET, Sun Sports...
Faried is fast becoming a well known commodity around the NBA.
Those who know me well know that my two favorite pastimes are the NBA and the James Bond film series. The latter involves a license to kill, while the former involves many with a license to thrill. This autumn marks the 50th
anniversary of 007′s debut on the silver screen, and this weekend, the release of the latest Bond film, Skyfall. With that in mind, I present, on a film-by...
What better way to start this weekly column with a little
MVP talk 5 games into the season? With our traditional preseason picks of Kevin
Durant or Lebron James it comes time to look at some other names that need to
be considered if the award was to be handed out today. Below are three other candidates early
on this season.
When the Thunder traded James Harden shortly before the season, the small-market contender did more than clear salary cap space. In dealing the heady two-guard, the Thunder also signaled that they believed Kevin Durant was ready to expand his game and to fill some of the roles Harden formerly occupied.
Durant has come through so far this season, and then some. Not only has he assumed...
LeBron James played under Mike Brown for several seasons with the Cavaliers.
