Ride The Pine:
I’m so glad that our friends from BustedCoverage saw the same thing I did.
As Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals went into halftime, I was half paying attention to the television. Lebron James did an interview for ESPN and was followed into the locker room by a camera crew at its conclusion.
It seemed nothing out of the ordinary, when I saw some lady dressed in white just standing there by herself. In fact, I kind of assumed that it was Lebron’s fiancé after he kissed the woman on the lips.
Turns out I was wrong.
Yep, that was Gloria James – Lebron’s mom.
LIFE LESSON: You should stop kissing your mother on the lips when you are old enough to talk and formulate the sentence – “Stop kissing me on the lips, Mom. Its weird.”
Do you think Bron-Bron is just trying to be respectful to the woman who still provides his nutrients.

Sure, we could go with a “Like father, like son” reference here, but I have no idea if the play in question when LeBron James, Jr. gets crossed up and dropped to the floor by an opponent’s killer crossover occurred during crunch time in the fourth quarter. (rim shot) LeBron, Jr, 7, who by all [...]
MIAMI LeBron James played nearly 48 minutes Wednesday night against Boston, and finally arrived in the interview room at 12:50 a.m.Thursday morning.
After being asked five questions, the Miami forward was ready to take some more. But none were asked.
"You guys are tired, too, huh?" James cracked, and then headed out into the night.
Before Jamesoutlasted all the reporters...
Two NBA Finals appearances for Lebron James. Two losses. What is the common thread linking both of these losses together? Both teams were from Texas.James joined the Miami Heat during the 2010-2011 season with one goal in mind and that was to win the championship that had eluded him up to that point in his career.

The Miami Heat completed a convincing win over the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals Monday night. Miami beat Boston 93-79, after a breakout second half performance in which they led by as many as 13 in the 3rd quarter. Perhaps the most comical part of the game, however, was the [...]
Heat Crush Celtics, Take 2-0 Lead
A.B. How obsessed is ESPN with Lebron James & the Miami Heat? I can’t watch SportsCenter for more than 5 minutes without seeing a King James montage. Forget David Stern rigging wanting a Miami finals – it’s clear that ESPN has already decided the outcome of the Heat/Celtics series as well.
I would hate to be the editor at ESPN who made...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a story about Lebron's new double headband. Well, it seems that Mavericks guard Jason Terry has taken note of it as well.Check out this snippet from a segment that TNT did about headbands where Jason Terry takes a shot at Lebron's big head:Below, here is the entire segment: (Courtesy of Rant Sports)
LeBron James scored 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics 93-79 on Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Shane Battier, playing in the conference finals for the first time, scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who wasted an early 11-point first-half...
What Lebron James did on Monday night against Boston was a long time coming. Early in his years, Lebron ended up on the short end against Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics. Pierce was Lebron’s kryptonite during those Cleveland years, mainly why he bolted to Miami to join forces with other stars. Except what we are finding out is that maybe Lebron could have done it himself...
1.LeBron James- The league MVP picked off right where he left off in the regular season. So far in two playoff series James is averaging 29. 3 points per game. 9.1 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 2.3 steals.
2. Dwyane Wade – After a horrible start in the 2nd round Wade was unstoppable in the final 3 games. While battling injuries Wade is still averaging 23.7 points per...
8 a.m. ET: The epitaph has already been written on the Celtics' season, it seems, but they have a chance to pull even with the Miami Heat on Wednesday. The Celtics trail the Heat 1-0 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals and will continue to hold their breath in regard to the status of Ray Allen, who is hampered by bone spurs in his ankles. Celtics coach Doc Rivers is...
For nine minutes, the Boston Celtics were vintage. Everything was working, points were coming in bunches, the Miami crowd was rendered quiet and a big deficit disappeared.
It was about the only time all night things went Boston's way - and that wasn't enough to take down LeBron James and the Heat.
James scored 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of...

Five years ago. Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. LeBron James was 23 years-old, a year removed from an embarrassing Finals sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, and, at the time, believed to be on the cusp of leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a championship. Surely, people thought, the next logical step after losing...
MIAMI -- There was a point Monday night when the Boston Celtics unexpectedly stood toe-to-toe with the Miami Heat in the opener of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference final series. And then the second quarter ended. Sluggish at the outset and seemingly exhausted by the third quarter, the Celtics fell 93-79 at AmericanAirlines Arena, unable to match the 32 points scored by...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
The general manager of the Boston Celtics was trying to understand how LeBron James could get to the free-throw line those 24 times, and so Danny Ainge stood in the hallway recreating a clear-path foul call...
