Even though the NBA playoffs started this weekend, the basketball topic getting the most publicity right now is 14-year-old Seventh Woods’ mixtape. Woods is a 6’1” freshman guard from Columbia, South Carolina.
First off, props to this kid’s mom for naming him Seventh. That is an awesome name.
Secondly, this kid is an elite athlete. I mean top-notch. And this kid is only a...
After the Miami Heat’s game one victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James wore a bizarre sweater to the post game press conference. I guess if you’re the best basketball player in the world you can do stuff like this, but it can’t be recommended. I hope his teammates gave him a lot of grief for wearing this hideous thing.
LeBron James put on his finest party sweater for the post-game press conference following the Miami Heat's Game 1 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
MIAMI If anybody has an idea, please drop it in the Milwaukee Bucks suggestion box.
With perhaps just a week left in his tenure as Bucks coach, Jim Boylan is looking for any way he can find to slow down LeBron James at least a little. After watching the Miami Heat star have a near triple-double Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, all Boylan could do was throw his hands up....
LeBron James got the 2013 NBA Playoffs going in the right direction for the Miami Heat with this massive dunk against the Milwaukee Bucks.
MIAMI Shane Battier knows exactly how LeBron James was looked upon a year ago. He even provided a demonstration.
The Miami Heat forward cocked his head to the right. Then he halfway closed his right eye.
People were skeptical and sort of gave him the hairy eyeball, Battier said.
Research turned up that Battier was uttering an expression that means to look at somebody disapprovingly...
After beating the two during a 3-point contest at practice, LeBron 'Drill Sergeant' James made Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers do 20 pushups each.
To put into context the challenge any team faces in a seven-game series, just take a gander at Miami's regular season results. The Heat lost just four times in their last 41 games dating back to Jan. 27 - with one of those losses coming without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Any team that plans on knocking out the defending NBA champions must find a way to beat them four times...

After a 19-year wait the Knicks once again sit atop the Atlantic Division as champions, fitting that their first round matchup will be against the Boston Celtics, winners of the past four Atlantic Division crowns before this season. This will be one of the more entertaining first round series of the NBA Playoffs this season as the rivals thoroughly dislike each...
What happened: The Miami Heat led from start to finish in a routine 110-87 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
It looked as if the Heat would blow the Bucks into the ocean right away while jumping out to a 21-8 lead. The Bucks did close to within 26-24 at the end of the first quarter before...
The Knicks took a very crucial game one in this best of seven series first round playoff match-up against the Boston Celtics. Even without the youth or talent of past years, the Celtics still know how to turn it up a notch come playoff time. The Knicks had real trouble slowing them down in the beginning of the game. They gave up twenty nine first quarter points to the Celtics but...
Boston Globe Knicks' Carmelo Anthony will never win it all - Dan Shaughnessy is not impressed by the New York superstar's game. Celtics go back to drawing board after loss to Knicks - Baxter Holmes sites their lack of teamwork down the stretch as the deciding factor in Game 1. Boston Herald Celtics hope to get Kevin Garnett more involved - Mark Murphy discusses Garnett'...
Anytime you are mentioned in the same breath as Larry Bird, you are great. Kevin Durant is a great player and one of the few SUPERstars of the league.
He has a problem though and that problem is named LeBron James.
LeBron has hit his prime and has a perfect team behind him to go on a run of championships. Only one person can stop him and that’s KD.
It is easier said than done though...
The Miami Heat are potentially set up for a dynasty with the likes of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh in the fold. But with each player possessing the option to opt out after next season, the question has always been whether or not the Heat would be able to keep all 3 down the road. With the potential luxury tax penalties for teams over the salary cap, keeping this...
