After the Nets outscored the Heat 29-19 to make it 49-49 at the half, the Heat walked over the the Nets, 36-14, in the third.

And in their only three games against the Heat this season they have lost by 30, 13 and 20 points.
“We didn’t actually lose in those games. We got our (butts) kicked in all three games,” Wallace said. “They dominated us.
“Any sport you measure yourself against the champions and it’s been embarrassing all three times,” Wallace said.

On the surface, it would appear that firing Avery Johnson was exactly what the Brooklyn Nets needed. The former coach was let go at the end of December, and the team has gone 13-4 since interim head coach PJ Carlesimo took over. However, LeBron James feels that the improvement has more to do with effort than it does coaching style. “They’re playing like they want to play for...

Kris Humphries made me almost spit out my coffee in this new Foot Locker spot. The big fella may get a ton of grief for his role in the Kim Kardashian fiasco, but this almost totally redeems himself. James Harden lets folks know that if they don’t know Foot Locker is bringing the heat that they could be banished to Kris Humphries’ entourage, just like poor Maurice. Good stuff...
I have to say, this Foot Locker commercial featuring James Harden and Kris Humphries is everything! Imagine you want to hand with the “cool kids” which crew would be a better look for you?

Brooklyn Nets forward and flopper/cheap shot artist extraordinaire Reggie Evans may be a great rebounder, but he’s also one of the NBA’s most annoying players. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that he’d say something dumb about LeBron James and the defending champion Miami Heat, who will make their Barclay’s Center debut Wednesday night:
“It doesn’t prove nothing...
Which is why he agreed to film this commercial. Well-played!
Khloe Kardashian appeared on VH1′s “Watch What Happens Live” Thursday night and shared her thoughts on Kim’s estranged husband Kris Humphries.
“It just needs to get over already! He’s, in my opinion, delusional, I don’t know why he’s asking for anything? He’s fame-hungry, in my opinion. He wants money . . . I just think everything he’s doing is so — it’s...
Many people thought Lopez should have been an All Star to begin with.
