American Airlines Arena in Miami is going to be known as an unfriendly space for fans if this keeps up. Remember during the Eastern Conference Finals when rapper Flo Rida’s manager, Lee “Freezy” Prince was asked to leave because of his rambunctious support of the Miami Heat? Looks like the NBA doesn’t want a repeat performance. Freezy recently revealed that he’s been banned from attending Game 6 tonight and Game 7 if necessary because Spurs head coach, Gregg Popovich isn’t a fan of that particular brand of support. “They were sending me emails all week and kind threats but I was ignoring them,” he said. “Then I got emails and phone calls from their lawyers telling me I’m not allowed in the building for the next two games. So I’m like, ‘What violation did I (commit)’” “They were just telling me we had too much energy and the head coach complained about it,” Freezy claimed. “Them cats want an easy win. They ain’t used to that Miami Heat support right next to them in their ears.” Freezy said the Pacers were more disrespectful about it than the Spurs. “The Spurs are just scared,” he explained. “They’re scared of the energy. The Pacers were disrespectful. The Spurs don’t want that building to erupt around them. What I do to cheer for my team is no different than what Spike Lee does in New York or Jack Nicholson does in LA.” He does have a point about Spike. Remember back in the day when he and former Pacers star Reggie Miller used to beef on the sideline? But, you can’t compare yourself to Jack. First of all, it’s JACK and secondly, Jack is too cool to have to do that much to rattle an opponent.

Danny Green Was Once The Awkward Guy In The Background At LeBron’s Birthday Party

This video shows just how quickly times can change. It was taken during LeBron’s birthday bash back in 2010 when he was still with the Cavaliers and Danny Green was his bench-riding rookie teammate on the Cavs. You can see Green in the background of this video looking pretty awkward and not really knowing what to do with himself. Fast forward three years later and Green is a breakout...

Despite 3-2 deficit, Heat like chances of winning title

LeBron James, Heat Force Game 7 in Most Demoralizing Manner Possible for Tim Duncan, Spurs

One more defensive rebound, and the Spurs would have been spraying champagne. One more board, one measly Heat miss corralled by the Spurs in the final 23 seconds of regulation, and the NBA Finals are over. Forget a Game 7, forget LeBron James’ headband, forget Manu Ginobili laying a gigantic egg for the umpteenth time in the series. It should be over. Tim Duncan should be passionlessly...

Kawhi Leonard Posterizes Mike Miller

credit to John Bryant Its Game 6 of the NBA Finals and this Kawhi Leonard is letting the defending champs, Miami Heat that he means business.  Look at the in your face dunk he lies on Mike Miller in the first quarter.  If you are a Heat fan, you probably cried for a foul; but there was no call.  As for Kawhi Leonard, who never talks, just added another highlight to his repertoire...

Reports of Dwyane Wade Getting His Sidechick Pregnant Probably Leaked By Ex-Wife

I had to go the Broussard route, checked with a few sources and there doesn’t seem to be much to it. Actually, they believe it is D Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches that is leaking negative reports about Wade in hopes of breaking him and Gabrielle Union up and distracting him during the Finals.  She is still upset about the divorce and Wade having custody of their sons.  She...

Video: Danny Green sets NBA Finals record for 3-pointers

Danny Green scored 24 points to help the San Antonio Spurs topple the Miami Heat on Sunday. 18 of Green’s points game of the 3-point sharpshooting that has become his trademark.

The Spurs now hold a 3-2 series lead over...

Gregg Popovich responds to not fouling Ray Allen before game-tying shot, “That’s The European Question, Right?”

One of the lingering questions from game six of the 2013 NBA Finals was the Spurs decision to not foul Ray Allen on his game-tying three point attempt before the end of regulation. As you might figure, a reporter asked Gregg Popovich that question and Pop didn’t disappoint with a very “Pop-Like” answer: Never Change, Gregg Popovich!

Manu Ginobili ‘Devastated’ By Game 6 Loss

Manu Ginobili wasn’t able to carry over his strong play from the Spurs’ Game 5 win (24 points, 10 assists) into Game 6 Tuesday night. In his second straight start, Ginobili scored just 9 points, had 8 (game-high) of the team’s 13 turnovers and called the 103-100 OT loss devastating. According to “I have no clue how we’re going to be re-energized,” said Ginobili...

Column: Spurs' collapse starts at top with Pop

(Eds: Changes photo links. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist The sly smile on Erik Spoelstra's lips said it all. If only this once, the Miami coach couldn't wait to field questions. This was just minutes after a magical Game 6, when the memories of how his Heat defied the longest of odds to steal a win in overtime were still fresh: Down five points with just...

– Why LeBron Still Fails to Impress Me

I’ll begin with the obvious: LeBron is great at what he does. But I’ll also be quite frank in saying that LeBron’s game is as impressive to me as Shaq’s game was during his prime, which is fine to watch and great for the Miami Heat, but it’s not really not admirable enough to justify an entire fan base of followers switching allegiances from one team to another, and quite...

Miami Heat Drop Game 5 to the San Antonio Spurs, Down 3-2 in NBA Finals

The Miami Heat came into Game 5 looking to win consecutive game for the first time since winning Games 3 and 4 against the Bulls in Eastern Conference Semifinals. That would not be the case on Sunday night as the Spurs countered with their own “small ball” lineup getting a 114-101 victory to gain a 3-2 series lead in the NBA Finals. Manu Ginobili had his best game of the playoffs...
