Well, so far, this years NBA Championship series is actually living up to the hype surrounding it. The build has been all about Kevin Durant vs. LeBron James and after 2 games you can say that neither has disappointed. The Miami Heat held off the Oklahoma City Thunder late Thursday night, 100-96. The Thunder did erase a 15 point lead in the 2nd half, but couldn't come all the way back. James erased some questions about his ability to finish late in Finals games, he scored 32, Dwyane Wade played more like Dwyane Wade, adding 24 and Chris Bosh was a big factor in the game, grabbing 15 rebounds. The Thunder struggled early, missing a lot of shot and were often out of control. A lot of that had to do with Russell Westbrook, who was getting into the lane, but was rarely able to make shots while in there. Already, the experts...or at least the clowns on the 4-letter-word (ESPN) have pretty much given the series to the Heat, and they do now have the home court advantage. Bu...

Jest Kills It With ‘LeBron James Home Movies’

Jest.com is always on point when they cover sports, but this clip of LeBron James developing his talents (and bad habits) at an early age might be the funniest thing they’ve ever done. 1994 LeBron taking his talents to Peter’s team and dribbling forever only to pass at the buzzer are funny enough, but the joke about not being able to be Michael Jordan in NBA Jam is so good...

LeBron hoping to make up for last year

LeBron James has been criticized his whole career for not stepping up when it really matters. That’s the price you pay when some call you the best in the world. His constant disappearing acts down the stretches of big games have now become part of his calling card. Last year’s NBA Finals was no exception. James didn’t play to the level he’s capable of and the Heat lost to...

Game 1 of The NBA Finals brings back deja vu

Well, game one of the 2012 NBA Finals is in the book and the story brings back lots of memories. Unstoppable tonight. Look familiar? (Reuters) Of playoffs past. Of LeBron James.

LeBron James' Uncalled Foul on Kevin Durant Erases Clutch Steal That Would Have Done Larry Bird Proud

The end of an NBA game typically is a time for the referees to swallow their whistles. Few fans like to see close games decided at the free throw line -- unless it is their team headed to the stripe, of course -- so except in the rare event that there is a mugging at the hoop, the hardwood in the waning seconds might as well be a New York City blacktop. Some fouls just need to be...

Lax Heat attack needs correcting for Game 2

Miami came ready to play Tuesday night in Game One of the NBA Finals. The Heat jumped out to a 13-point lead and had everything going.

Oklahoma City set to become regular NBA June stop
