Found June 11, 2012 on With Leather:
With the table now set for the NBA Finals, as the Miami Heat will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder starting tomorrow night at 9 PM, I wanted to address a very important topic before we get all analytical on your asses. People have been talking and complaining about the rapidly-spreading fad of NBA players wearing “nerd glasses”, with the most notable attention directed at Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. For some reason, the fact that Wade even wore glasses without lenses has been something that should be talked about. Fine. Let’s talk about it. Let’s talk about how this fad isn’t anything new. NBA players have always been notorious trendsetters, starting with their eyewear. It goes back to the very first days of the NBA, as star players like Joe Dribbleguy and Kevin Bouncepass were generating buzz with their own ridiculous glasses. After the jump, I’ve put together a gallery of the NBA’s biggest legends all wearing their own unique eyewear, on and off the court. And if these p...

Boston Fan Pours Beer On Lebron James After Celtics Loss To Heat

A.B. As much as I hate Lebron James and the Miami heat, this is bush league. Being some 45 year old mid-life-crisis-big-bellied Bostonian who dropped $200+ on tickets and $8+ on crappy beer doesn’t give you the right to throw a beer at a professional athlete. Be a man and jump on the court and take a swing at the big fella. I would respect that much more. But waiting for Lebron...

Kevin Durant Understands Individual Matchup Between Him, LeBron James Will Dominant Finals Headlines

Kevin Durant knows that whatever happens in the NBA Finals, he and LeBron James will be viewed as being at the center of it, for better or for worse. He recognizes that, he understands that, but he doesn't have to like that. Durant and James have more in common than chasing a championship starting Tuesday in Oklahoma City. Both have become hermits during the playoffs, with James...

Heat rise above Celtics, earn title bout

MIAMI As much as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh chafed at the trash talk, the head games and even the pushups each time they have played Boston, deep down they knew there was a reason the Celtics, after putting Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett alongside Paul Pierce had won a title, lost another in Game 7, and never, ever went down without a fight. The Celtics not only played...

Windhorst: 'Behavior Modification' Has Helped LeBron

LeBron hoping to make up for last year

LeBron James has been criticized his whole career for not stepping up when it really matters. That’s the price you pay when some call you the best in the world. His constant disappearing acts down the stretches of big games have now become part of his calling card. Last year’s NBA Finals was no exception. James didn’t play to the level he’s capable of and the Heat lost to...

Giant statues of Miami Heat big three created at go kart race track (photos)

With the Miami HEAT headed to the 2012 NBA Finals versus the Oklahoma City Thunder, a local South Florida company thought it was only right to commemorate the occasion with 16, 18 and 20 foot statues of the big three. Prime Time Amusements, a global operator, seller and event renter of video arcade machines and simulators, made Miami’s biggest sports figures – LeBron James,...

Watch Gang Green at 9… because the NBA is dead to you now, anyway

I’ve heard rumors that there’s some basketball game on tonight… but honestly, I’m not sure what it is.  I assume it’s one of those crappy lockout exhibition things arranged by LeBron James and Kevin Durant because as far as I can remember, the NBA season ended Saturday. So instead of watching….. that….. watch the Gang in the latest episode of Gang Green. They go live...

NBA Finals Preview – Thunder vs. Heat

                It’s the finals every body wanted. LeBron James versus anti-LeBron James, aka Kevin Durant. The makeup of both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat could not be any more different. Miami built their big-3 through free agency in the summer of 2010. James and Chris Bosh upped with Dwyane Wade, which of course prompted this.  Meanwhile, just days after...

Mike Tyson performs the beautifully touching “LeBron James” on Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

Touching, poignant, and haunting. And that’s just the afro wig and basketball outfit Iron Mike is sporting. Mike Tyson continues to reinvent himself as a master of comedy, and this latest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live only adds to his repertoire of hilarity.  Tyson sings the melodic “Lebron James” as only he can.  The only thing funnier than Tyson’s so-called singing...

LeBron James Credits Doc Rivers, Calls Him 'One Hell of a Coach' (Video)

Well, it’s all over for the Celtics. However, an enemy of many Celtics fans had some nice things to say about head coach Doc Rivers. LeBron James told ESPN’s Doris Burke, after the Heat defeated the Celtics 101-88 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, that he thinks River is “one hell of a coach.” He commented on how well Rivers prepares his team. James closed out the...

Starting 5: OKC comes back vs. Miami's fizzle

Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day. 1:  OKC's big comeback You wouldn't see a re-incarnted Sun Tzu penning basketball strategies that include being down 13 at any point in an NBA Finals game, but the Thunder never quite seemed uncomfortable with their deficits in Game 1.  Like a battering ram taking a few...

I Don’t Get The NBA’s Whole “Kiss Your Mom On The Lips” Deal

I’m starting to think it’s me.  Maybe I’m emotionally detached from my mother?  Maybe I’m the crazy one but its bizarre to watch the new generation of NBA stars to kiss their mothers ON THE LIPS during games. I’ve been ripping into Miami Heat’s Lebron James for repeatedly kissing his mom on the lips in Game 1 against the Boston Celtics and in Game 5 too but at least...
