If you get a chance to pick up last week's Sports Illustrated issue without gagging at the cover, it's worth flipping through to Walter Iooss Jr.'s career retrospective. The photographer has been shooting athletes and swimsuit models for SI for 50 years, and it turns out that he's got as many wonderful anecdotes about famous athletes as he does iconic images of them.

LeBron James Writes, Directs Sheets Ad To Kick-Off Facebook Ad Contest (Video)

By now you likely seen one of the ridiculous commercials or ads for the product, Sheets, where you are advised to “Take a Sheet” for a quick boost of energy. LeBron James, as co-owner of the company that produces Sheets — a dissolvable strip that melts on a person’s tongue which presumably gives the user [...]

Off the Bench: LeBron's entourage 'unimaginable'

LeBron James' entourage wouldn't let an SI photographer talk to him directly.

Cavs granted time on trade exception

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant confirmed Monday what an NBA source told FOX Sports Ohio last week: That the team has been given the remaining time on a 14.5 million trade exception obtained in the summer of 2010. The exception, which can be used in a number of trade scenarios, expires Friday. Grant said the Cavs may use it or may let it expire, depending...

Tuesday Bullets

When LeBron James talks about the great things that happened for him in the Chicago of his youth (going to Tim Grover's gym, meeting Michael Jordan and Jay-Z), that's a shoutout to William Wesley without saying the words "William Wesley," which William Wesley would not like. Players who can shoot have so many advantages. John Hollinger (Insider) talks about...

Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Other Superstars Are Not Hurting NBA's Competitive Balance

The storyline involving LeBron James and "The Decision" was so tidy, it's no wonder NBA supporters and detractors alike embraced it last season. James, the best individual basketball player on the planet, spurned the relatively small-market Cleveland Cavaliers for the glamorous Miami Heat, and teamed with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to reach the NBA Finals. The danger...

Miami Heat Say It’s NBA Title or Bust in 2012

by Marcel Mutoni / @marcel_mutoni Given all of the craziness happening around the NBA at the moment, there is considerably less drama surrounding the Miami Heat this year (a stark contrast to last season, when they signed LeBron James, Chris Bosh and re-upped with Dwyane Wade.) Just because less people are thinking, talking and writing about them doesn’t mean there’s any less...

The #NBA Is Tweeting, Featuring Sonny Weems

These have become my favorite posts to make, so hopefully you all like ‘em!  I’ll try not to OD, but I think I’ll be continuing to crank these out pretty frequently.  Now, in this edition of The #NBA Is Tweeting, we learn a little bit about the off-court interests of various NBA players such as Andrew Bogut, LeBron James, and Russell Westbrook.  We also take a trip to...

LeBron is Mum on NBA Upheaval

Chaos reigns ahead of the start of basketball season. After the league vetoed a trade that would send New Orleans' Chris Paul, the best point guard in the NBA, to the Lakers, Orlando's Dwight Howard demanded a trade to a super-team of his own. LeBron James does not want to talk about that, though, as his Miami Heat prepare for the season. The recent flock to high-profile...

In the NBA, there is chaos, then there are the Heat

At various times during Monday’s media day, Heat players were asked about Chris Paul’s impending move to the Clippers, as well as the Clippers’ failed bid to land Paul. It also was a day when Heat players were united in their desire to add Chauncey Billups, only to learn before they left AmericanAirlines Arena that Billups had unexpectedly been claimed off waivers by the guard...
