PLAYERS: LeBron James
TEAMS: Miami Heat
LeBron James might be the best passer in the NBA. He was the best player for the Americans and he didn’t even score in double figures. James set the tone with his passing. James finished the game with 9 points, 8 assists and 5 rebounds. James has great vision for a player his size. In the win over France James had one of the best passes that you will ever see. Tyson Chandler rebounded the ball off the Tony Parker miss and passed the ball to James at the three point line. From there is what time for James instincts to take over. He threw a 50- foot bounce pass to Kevin Durant in stride. Durant finished the play with a dunk and a and-one. That’s just ridiculous, that’s not even fair. After a slow 1st quarter the USA cruised past France in their 1st game of the 2012 London Olympics. After the 1st quarter the US was only up by 1 point but they pulled away in the end winning the game 98-71. The US is seeking in second straight gold medal after winning in Beijing four year...

  It was nearly midway through the first quarter when Tyson Chandler rebounds the ball, passes to LeBron who in turn connected with Kevin Durant who ran on the fast-break by way of a 50-foot bounce pass by LeBron James. Did I mention it was a 50-foot bounce pass between players?? LeBron is just incredible.

LeBron James Got Denied From a Dinner Date

LeBron James just got turned down from a dinner date.  Yes, LeBron is engaged to his high school girlfriend, but he still got the big red card from a fellow Olympian. U.S. swimmer Lauren Perdue tweeted that LeBron asked her to grab some dinner at the Olympic Village dining hall.  Perdue then said, He was kind of joking. But he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat...

DJ Delz: “Imagine if Lebron James went to the Celtics”

When Ray Allen left Boston for the Miami Heat, my first thought was: “Damn we’re going to miss his clutch 3′s.”  My second thought was: “Damn I’m really going to miss his sweet J’s.”  No..not those J’s-his Jordans. During his time with the Celtics, Ray wore some sweet Air Jordan player exclusives. I doubt we will ever see a better selection of kicks than we did...

Slow Mo Olympic Video: LeBron James and Kevin Durant Get Bromantic In real life they looked at each other for one quick second. In Olympic slow motion, with the music behind it, their gaze had much more behind it. They got bromantic. The Miami vs Thunder stuff was left in the States. This is London [...]

US starts slow, then rolls over Tunisia

LeBron James and Kobe Bryant took a seat, then the U.S. Olympic basketball team took control. The Americans got their expected blowout and fans got the show they came to see in the 110-63 win over Tunisia, but only after U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski started his reserves to open the second half after a lackluster first 20 minutes. Finally pulling away behind the second unit's...

Assorted Observations: Team USA 98, Team France 71

***Although he took just six shots, LeBron James left his fingerprints all over this game.  The King finished with eight assists, including a high-speed, no-look dish which whizzed past the head of Boris Diaw (video to be added if and when I can find it).  Oh, and then there was this one… I imagine James would’ve finished with at least 10 helpers had Team USA been able to...

Team USA rolls France

The first game for the 2012 USA Men’s Basketball team is in the books. They throttled their opponent, France, 98-71. Kevin Durant and LeBron James were brilliant for the US, leading them to an easy victory. Great defense led the way to the USA’s blowout of France. Team USA seems destined for Gold. The game was closer than expected in the beginning. The US had only a one-point...

U.S. swimmer Lauren Perdue says she turned down LeBron James’ dinner request because she had a curphew

Before we get into this, let us just remind everyone that it is possible to be friendly and invite someone to dinner without having an ulterior motive. As we know, LeBron James is an engaged man. Last week before the Olympics began, LeBron met US swimmer Lauren Perdue, as the photo evidence above from Perdue’s Twitter account proves. As it turns out, LeBron asked the 21-year...

“Dreaming Team”: Why 2012 Team USA Couldn’t Beat The Dream Team

It has been a subject of much debate. LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have made their feelings known. The question: Who would win if matched up; the 1992 Dream Team or their 2012 counterparts? And while this 2012 squad is unbelievably talented, and should win the gold medal without any real problems, the answer to the above is not even up for conversation. The Dream Team wins, and wins...

Sexy Dance 4: Miami Heat

Again, another post that has nothing to do with fantasy basketball… But I think this is amusing. Since I’m vacationing in Paris (hence the 8 a Huit Blogiversary celebration and getting to see Tony Parker interviewed in French), I get to see a lot shirts with weird English phrases on them as well as the translations of movie titles… Now, I’m not really a connoisseur of the...
