Horray! Basketball is BACK in New York! Below is the official press release from the NBA:
NEW YORK, Nov 28, 2012 – Reigning NBA Finals MVP LeBron James of the Miami Heat reclaims the No.1 spot on the NBA top-selling jerseys list and the New York Knicks are the top-selling team for the first time since December 2004. The list is based on sales at the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue and on NBAStore.com from April 2012 through Nov. 26, 2012, a record breaking Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
James, who last held the top spot in April 2011, climbs from No. 4, taking the lead away from the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose, who slips to No. 5. At No. 2 on the list is the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant, who, after making his NBA Finals debut in June, catapults from the No. 8 spot. Also included in the top five are the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (No. 3), and New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (No. 4).
Since 2001, Bryant has claimed the No. 1 position six times in the bi-annual

AROUND THE WEB
There are so many trick shot videos floating around the internet these days that it’s only natural to be a bit skeptical every time you see one. Considering the star of this one is only 8 years old, we’re willing to forget all the things we’ve heard about people faking it and give him the benefit of the doubt.

So it looks like it is OK to like LeBron James again.

LeBron James has the top-selling NBA jersey for the first time since April 2011.
MIAMI LeBron James scores, passes, rebounds and plays defense. Apparently, he also breaks news.

Unfortunately, were not going to have him for the next few games, James said of Battier.

Earlier this week we revealed Nike’s rumored line-up of Christmas shoes for Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant.

Skip Bayless writing lead columns for ESPN.com, sadly, is becoming a trend that looks like it's here to stay.

One thing is certain about athletes and celebrities in general, they love being acknowledged by other stars. Lebron James is no different. Monday night King James was spotted at 2 Chainz’s – wait, I hope you said that with the correct cadence- B.O.A.T.S. tour at Miami’s Fillmore. James hopped onstage with 2 Chainz, Lil [...]
LeBron James Jr. or “Bronie” obviously has some of daddy’s skills. Check him out hitting this shot from the balcony. Awww that’s cute. More NBA junior cuteness, Chris Paul’s son, lil chris had him working on his game when the Clippers returned from their road trip the other night. Smart move. Clippers are currently [...]

OKLAHOMA CITY Maybe it's because Russell Westbrook is struggling and former running mate James Harden is gone, but Kevin Durant is getting back to his old self.
It's not like anyone was concerned Durant was in a slump, but his slow-scoring start was notable.
But that's changed. And so have the Thunder.
The three-time scoring champion is looking more familiar, and...
GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) -- Jack Taylor's encore for his record-setting performance was OK, just nowhere near his previous game.
