With the final minute of the 3rd quarter winding down, the Miami Heat led the Milwaukee Bucks 77-65. LeBron James drives down the lane and throws a pass to a waiting Shane Battier in the corner for a three. Battier misses, but Chris “Birdman” Andersen swoops in and throws down the putback slam. TNT’s Kevin Harlan was on the call, and became ecstatic following the dunk. Harlan gushes about Andersen for a full 24 seconds while the Bucks have possession.
I personally love the call, and the energy from Harlan. While his gushing was a little overboard, I can’t say I blame him after a dunk like that.
What do you think of the call? Love it or hate it?

MIAMI Shane Battier knows exactly how LeBron James was looked upon a year ago. He even provided a demonstration.
The Miami Heat forward cocked his head to the right. Then he halfway closed his right eye.
People were skeptical and sort of gave him the hairy eyeball, Battier said.
Research turned up that Battier was uttering an expression that means to look at somebody disapprovingly...
Miami Heat forward Shane Battier had a superstition to drink one Bud Light before every one of the team's 27 consecutive wins, so Bud Light hooked him up with a truckload of free beer, literally.
MIAMI Shane Battier apparently kept getting calls from Mike Krzyzewski, his coach at Duke.Voice messages were left a few years ago for Battier that seemed strange. It was suggested he should drop Peak as the Chinese shoe he wears and how he was taking too many 3-pointers and drawing too many charges.For those who know the Miami Heat forward, his outside shot and crafty defensive...
Even though the NBA playoffs started this weekend, the basketball topic getting the most publicity right now is 14-year-old Seventh Woods’ mixtape. Woods is a 6’1” freshman guard from Columbia, South Carolina.
First off, props to this kid’s mom for naming him Seventh. That is an awesome name.
Secondly, this kid is an elite athlete. I mean top-notch. And this kid is only a...
After the Miami Heat’s game one victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James wore a bizarre sweater to the post game press conference. I guess if you’re the best basketball player in the world you can do stuff like this, but it can’t be recommended. I hope his teammates gave him a lot of grief for wearing this hideous thing.
King James runs a tight ship.
LeBron James, he of the remarkable regular season and the likely NBA MVP, is firing on all cylinders right now.

LeBron James put on his finest party sweater for the post-game press conference following the Miami Heat's Game 1 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

MIAMI If anybody has an idea, please drop it in the Milwaukee Bucks suggestion box.
With perhaps just a week left in his tenure as Bucks coach, Jim Boylan is looking for any way he can find to slow down LeBron James at least a little. After watching the Miami Heat star have a near triple-double Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, all Boylan could do was throw his hands up....
LeBron James got the 2013 NBA Playoffs going in the right direction for the Miami Heat with this massive dunk against the Milwaukee Bucks.

What happened: The Miami Heat led from start to finish in a routine 110-87 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
It looked as if the Heat would blow the Bucks into the ocean right away while jumping out to a 21-8 lead. The Bucks did close to within 26-24 at the end of the first quarter before...
After beating his teammates in a 3 point around-the-world shooting competition at Heat practice today -- LeBron James forced Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers to get down and give him 20.

Anytime you are mentioned in the same breath as Larry Bird, you are great. Kevin Durant is a great player and one of the few SUPERstars of the league.
He has a problem though and that problem is named LeBron James.
LeBron has hit his prime and has a perfect team behind him to go on a run of championships. Only one person can stop him and that’s KD.
It is easier said than done though...
The Miami Heat are potentially set up for a dynasty with the likes of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh in the fold. But with each player possessing the option to opt out after next season, the question has always been whether or not the Heat would be able to keep all 3 down the road. With the potential luxury tax penalties for teams over the salary cap, keeping this...
