MIAMI -- On a night LeBron James opened 1-for-6 from the field and Dwyane Wade scored just two first-half points, the Miami Heat found a way. Barely. Even if it took a bit longer than planned. Boston point guard Rajon Rondo was back to his dominant self, yet it still wasn't enough for the Celtics, as they fell to a 2-0 deficit in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference championship series with a 115-111 overtime loss at AmericanAirlines Arena. "This group had resolve," Wade said. In a game that offered some of the best both teams had to offer, the Heat ultimately prevailed behind 34 points from James and 23 from Wade, surviving an 44-point, 10-assist, eight-rebound effort from Rondo and 21 points from Celtics forward Paul Pierce, who fouled out in late in regulation. The Heat overcame an early 15-point deficit, the largest comeback in the franchise's playoff history. The previous best were a pair of 14-point comebacks. "We kept fighting, and Coach ke...

Sure, we could go with a “Like father, like son” reference here, but I have no idea if the play in question when LeBron James, Jr. gets crossed up and dropped to the floor by an opponent’s killer crossover occurred during crunch time in the fourth quarter. (rim shot) LeBron, Jr, 7, who by all [...]
I’m so glad that our friends from BustedCoverage saw the same thing I did.
As Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals went into halftime, I was half paying attention to the television. Lebron James did an interview for ESPN and was followed into the locker room by a camera crew at its conclusion.
It seemed nothing out of the ordinary, when I saw some lady dressed in white just...
MIAMI LeBron James played nearly 48 minutes Wednesday night against Boston, and finally arrived in the interview room at 12:50 a.m.Thursday morning.
After being asked five questions, the Miami forward was ready to take some more. But none were asked.
"You guys are tired, too, huh?" James cracked, and then headed out into the night.
Before Jamesoutlasted all the reporters...
Two NBA Finals appearances for Lebron James. Two losses. What is the common thread linking both of these losses together? Both teams were from Texas.James joined the Miami Heat during the 2010-2011 season with one goal in mind and that was to win the championship that had eluded him up to that point in his career.

The Miami Heat completed a convincing win over the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals Monday night. Miami beat Boston 93-79, after a breakout second half performance in which they led by as many as 13 in the 3rd quarter. Perhaps the most comical part of the game, however, was the [...]

Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a story about Lebron's new double headband. Well, it seems that Mavericks guard Jason Terry has taken note of it as well.Check out this snippet from a segment that TNT did about headbands where Jason Terry takes a shot at Lebron's big head:Below, here is the entire segment: (Courtesy of Rant Sports)
Dwyane Wade is the NBA’s fashion rock star. Calculated risk taker. Case in point, his light maroon suit, checked shirt complete with turquoise tie and matching finger wrap. That’s one of his signature style points. Athletes compete on the newest converted runways, the pre-game arrival and the post-game conference swag. LeBron embodies more of [...]
What Lebron James did on Monday night against Boston was a long time coming. Early in his years, Lebron ended up on the short end against Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics. Pierce was Lebron’s kryptonite during those Cleveland years, mainly why he bolted to Miami to join forces with other stars. Except what we are finding out is that maybe Lebron could have done it himself...
8 a.m. ET: The epitaph has already been written on the Celtics' season, it seems, but they have a chance to pull even with the Miami Heat on Wednesday. The Celtics trail the Heat 1-0 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals and will continue to hold their breath in regard to the status of Ray Allen, who is hampered by bone spurs in his ankles. Celtics coach Doc Rivers is...

Five years ago. Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. LeBron James was 23 years-old, a year removed from an embarrassing Finals sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, and, at the time, believed to be on the cusp of leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a championship. Surely, people thought, the next logical step after losing...
MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat know what's coming from the Boston Celtics.
"Their all," Dwyane Wade said.
That's what usually happens when one team is fighting to save its season -- and in this case, the Big Four era in Boston might be at stake as well.
