HE'S GOT SKILLS
LeBron James hits a bank, left-handed 3-point shot against the Chicago Bulls simply because he can.
Under most circumstances, a LeBron James dunk even at away arenas would draw a chorus of cheers but earlier tonight, fans in Atlanta weren't exactly pleased with his effort.In the first quarter of play, LeBron had a breakaway dunk thanks to a nice pass from Mario Chalmers but instead of throwing down a highlight dunk, he did simple two-handed jam.That got some fans in Atlanta...
In the wake of Michael Jordan‘s 50th birthday, there’s been a lot of NBA talk comparing His Airness, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and their place in the history of basketball. Well, now Bryant, himself, is weighing in with his opinion. On Wednesday, Bryant sat down for an interview with ESPN Radio Los Angeles (compiled here by Sports Radio Interviews) where he touched on numerous...
The man is on fire on the basketball court. With the way he is playing he is an almost lock to win the MVP--and the season has plenty of action still to come!
Nothing is going wrong professionally for the man, but when something seems to be going so right in one area of life how often does that mean that another area suffers? That appears to be the case for LeBron.
Recently, the comparisons of Michael Jordan and LeBron James increased in volume across the media. ESPN Chicago got a few words from Hall of Famer and former Detroit “Bad Boy” Isiah [...]
As you can tell by the 86-67 final score, the Chicago Bulls are no match for the Miami Heat without their star Derrick Rose. LeBron James pretty much shoots over 60% from the field on a nightly basis these days. Last night was no different. James went 11-15 (73%), and started shooting with his left hand just to rub some salt in the wound. This particular shot was after the...
Michael Jordan just turned 50 and you would have had to have been in a coma to have missed that fact with all the celebration going on.
Much of the debate the past week has been about what Jordan would do to LeBron James or any other player in the prime of Jordan’s career.
The question now though is what would MJ do today, right now if he was the starting shooting guard for the...
The last time the San Antonio Spurs carried away the NBA crown was in 2007 when they swept LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since then, the team has been in a drought. They have gotten close like last year when they marched to the Western Conference Finals but came up short against the Thunder and will look to win it all again this season.
Spurs owner Peter Holt recently...
Wow, just crazy awesome to watch this video. Meet Eddie who is a geriatric sea otter at the Oregon Zoo. The Zoo had to teach Eddie how to play basketball to help with his arthritis in his elbows. Surprisingly he's really good. I'm guessing he would probably be able to beat LeBron James in a dunk contest, but we all know LeBron is too scared to enter one anyway. ...
Pre-Game News and Notes
Knicks vs. Pacers
The Knicks went into the All-Star break on a sour note losing three of their last four games. They will look to turn things around starting in Indiana Wednesday night. This will be the third time this season the Knicks and Pacers face off, with each team getting a win on their home court thus far.

Want to see hear what it sounds like when LeBron James sings? Yes, we know you do and thankfully for us he did during the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, on the jumbotron no less.
Three observations from the Miami Heat's runaway win vs. the Hawks on Wednesday night:
1. There are two opposing concepts that come to mind when watching the Heat play lesser competition this season: either the defending NBA champs take their time searching for ways to efficiently attack an opponent such as the Atlanta Hawks ... or LeBron James & Co., simply turn it on and...
ATLANTA (AP) -- The Miami Heat turned to two veterans off the bench to spark a dramatic fourth-quarter turnaround that kept their longest winning streak of the season alive.
Ray Allen and Shane Battier combined for 24 points in the fourth quarter, and the Heat scored the first 13 points of the period to erase Atlanta's 10-point lead and beat the Hawks 103-90 on Wednesday night...
CORAL GABLES, Fla. How big have the second-ranked Hurricanes become in Miami?
The Heat are getting ideas from them.
Heat stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade attended the Feb. 9 game between the Miami and North Carolina. When Hurricanes guard Shane Larkin threw a pass off the backboard on a fastbreak to center Kenny Kadji for a dunk, James and Wade went wild. They went crazy again...
There are two types of great buzzer-beaters. The first kind is the end result of a well-executed inbounds play, one that involves screens and misdirection and ends with a shooter getting open just long enough to rise up for a clean shot at the rim. (See: LeBron James saving Cleveland's season in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals). Then there are the buzzer-beaters that...
