Part of it has been the cutthroat competition in the Eastern Conference part of it James' precarious progression to maturity part of it simply a belief that LeBron's full of it. "Tell LeBron to worry about Miami" Garnett grumbled late Thursday. "He has nothing to do with Celtic business." Garnett punctuated his words with a pound of the podium and snarl burning straight to South Beach. In his rush to defend Ray Allen James blasted Garnett and Paul Pierce with flawed and forced logic. James called them out as hypocrites for such a harsh response to Allen's free agent fleeing to Miami only to make the move themselves a year later.

Kevin Garnett Says LeBron James Should ‘Worry About Miami’ After He, Paul Pierce Criticized for Celtics’ Supposed Hypocrisy

If LeBron James wants to rope himself into the back-and-forth (or, for that matter, the silent treatment) that has accompanied the breakup of the Celtics’ Big Three, that’s just fine — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will take shots at him as well. Garnett and Pierce had brief but pointed words for the Heat star this week after James accused the two of getting a break when they...

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade: Former Celtics owe Ray Allen an apology

The Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets are set to square off against each other in a preseason game Thursday night. However, it appears the trash talk has begun before the two teams even step on the floor.

Wade's 25 points lift Heat over Spurs, 121-96

LeBron James spent most of the night sitting with fans, Ray Allen didn't re-enact his famous shot and the Larry O'Brien Trophy was nowhere to be found.

NBA Players say Jordan & Kobe over LeBron for a Last Second Shot

Perception, is an extremely powerful thing. There are some people who say it comes very close to reality in terms of importance, but one thing I will say is what people think is true is generally what they choose to believe. Even if it may not necessarily be the case. That’s kind of how I feel about the anonymous player poll done by ESPN The Magazine, in which they asked current...
