LeBron Credits Bahamas Trip For Team Bonding

LeBron James has enjoyed training camp with the Miami Heat in the Bahamas. “To come down here, just us, it gives us a great time to bond and have some camaraderie both on and off the floor,” James said. “We worked our tails off for five practices and to be able to have down times in the afternoons to just chill around the pool, we had a lot of laughs.” NBA teams are not allowed...

Wade blames surgery for bum knee

After his sophomore year at Marquette, Dwyane Wade decided to have the meniscus in his left knee removed. It was a decision made for expediency's sake, the Heat guard suggests now, and one he regrets. Wade, who has battled knee problems throughout his 10-year NBA career and had to receive regular knee treatments through the second half of last season and the playoffs, believes...

Dwyane Wade Regrets 2002 Surgery Which Led To All His Knee Problems

Say what you want about Dwyane Wade, but he’ll go down in history as one of the better shooting guards to ever play in the NBA. Wade now struggles with chronic knee issues, and can point directly to when everything changed in his knees.  Wade during an interview admitted that a 2002 surgery he had while still at Marquette led to all his recent knee problems.

LeBron James says Bahamas trip great for Miami Heat team bonding

Conspiracy theories and circumstantial evidence are popping up almost daily now in the constant and ongoing crusade to figure out what it’s going to take to keep LeBron James in Miami after this season. An annual training camp here in the Bahamas at Atlantis Paradise Island Resort probably wouldn’t be a deterrent in keeping the world’s greatest basketball player in South Florida...

D-Wade Pushing Michael Beasley

It seems like Dwyane Wade, being the team leader that he is, has taken some of the responsibility for helping turn Michael Beasley's career around. After the first practice of training camp on Tuesday, Beasley said that "D-Wade stayed in my ear the whole time" (via Bleacher Report's Ethan Skolnick). And Wade hasn't stopped as training camp has progressed...

Chris Bosh Had A Cameo On “Parks And Recreation” Last Night

Thursday night’s episode of Parks and Recreation featured a basketball game between fictional Pawnee (Indiana) and rival town Eagleton, who played in the appropriately-named “Pawnee-Eagleton Tip-Off Classic”.

Dwyane Wade regrets getting knee surgery in 2002

Over the last ten years, many things have changed in our fair world and medical technology has increasingly gotten more advanced to fixing injuries within the human body.

Can LeBron James Reach The G.O.A.T Level?

At the age of 28, LeBron James has now achieved what he ever wanted. He is a two-time NBA champion, a four-time regular season MVP and a two-time Olympic Gold medalist. What could a player like LeBron want more, now that he is in the top of the world? Usually, motivation fades away as success comes. That’s why, we might have expected LeBron to take his focus off improving his...

Ray Allen Not Tired Of "The Shot"

Ray Allen has had a historic career, but it may be defined primarily by one shot. "The Shot": his game-tying three-pointer in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. And Allen seems fine with that. From Brian Windhorst of ESPN: “I totally don’t mind if people define me by that shot,” Allen said. “It’s a winning shot, it put us in a situation that all of us...
