HOUSTON LeBron James was coming. He was leaving behind the pageantry and politics and the legacy talk and the comparisons to Jordan and all the other noise of the NBA All-Star Game to come here, to a Boys and Girls Club not far from downtown, where he would continue to stitch together a legacy utterly separate from the one he's crafting on the court.
More than 100 kids were lined up and seated on chairs and bleachers, clad in green shirts with LeBron's name stitched across them and that look of childhood anticipation only the innocent can conjure up.

"Look at those shoes!" a little boy seated just to my left screamed. He turned the girl next to him, pulled on her shoulder, frantically. "Look! At! Those! Shoes!"

“At the end of the day, rings don’t always define a career. If that was the case, I would sit up here and say I’d take [Bill] Russell...

HOUSTON The weekend started on Friday, when LeBron James started talking about Michael Jordan talking about LeBron James.
This is the nature of NBA All-Star weekend, which finishes with the All-Star game at 8 p.m. ET Sunday at Toyota Center in Houston. It is a weekend for sorting things out whos better than whom, what is the state of the NBA, how popular is basketball globally...
LeBron James sits down and chats with CNN’s Rachel Nichols during All-Star 2013 in Houston to talk about his first half run and compares his shooting accuracy to sitting on the beach with a tennis ball: “no matter where you throw it, it’s going to land in the water”, among other topics including the never ending Jordan/James debate.
Heat forward LeBron James has been lights out in his past seven games. James has been scoring at will and has lead the Heat on a seven game winning streak.

Everyone knows that nobody plays defense in the NBA All-Star Game, but Kobe Bryant made one exception Sunday night.

Kobe and LeBron had — as usual...

The circus is back in town. Every year, or sometimes even more often, we seem to be forced to debate on whether Kobe Bryant or LeBron James is the next Michael Jordan. It’s like the Tim Tebow debate; ESPN cooks it up and puts it on a plate and we forgo our forks and shovel The post LeBron James, Kobe Bryant Still Chasing Michael Jordan appeared first on No Coast Bias.
