Pau Gasol expects to return from a concussion on Thursday night when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Miami Heat.
Gasol has missed five games since Denver's JaVale McGee accidentally elbowed him in the face. The 7-foot Spaniard is optimistic he's ready to play again after going through a short workout with his teammates Wednesday at the Lakers' training complex.
Last night LeBron James added another accomplishment to his long list of records. In the Heat’s win over the Warriors James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 20,000 points.
James did so at 28 years and 17 days. The previous record was held by Kobe Bryant who got to 20,000 at 29 years and 122 days. Of course James did this the fastest because he started his career...

Remember back in the summer of 2010 when LeBron James decided to take his talents to South Beach? Remember when the Miami Heat then held a pep rally and LeBron James himself stated that they’re going to win “not 2…not 3…not 4…not 5…not 6…not 7″ NBA championship titles? They claimed [...]
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- LeBron James once scored 51 points against the Utah Jazz, and needed 50 on Monday night to become the youngest player to reach 20,000 for his career.
He almost got there.
James scored 32 for the Miami Heat, but the Jazz held on after nearly blowing a 21-point lead and won 104-97.
"We're trying to learn how to push a lead from 20 to 30 and close...

The defending NBA champions, the Miami Heat, are matching up against the trendy Golden State Warriors Wednesday night and around the 4:23 mark of the first quarter we have our first killer dunk. Was it LeBron James? No, but he was involved as Udonis Haslem stuffed the ball with authority off of a James’ miss. H/T [...]The post Powerful Udonis Haslem Putback (Video) appeared first...
