A fantastic piece of satire from the fine folks at The Heckler imagines what it would be like if Commissioner David Stern bit the bullet, admitted that flopping is here to stay and the league might as well accept it. In fact, the NBA might as well incorporate flopping into its logo. Even better, why [...]The post Satirical article claims NBA changed logo to include LeBron James flopping (pic) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
With four NBA Most Valuable Player awards under his belt, seemingly countless endorsement deals and an unofficial tag as the best basketball player on the planet, it seems almost ridiculous that LeBron James has never been honored as the cover athlete of a video game.
Until now, that is. 2K Sports announced Thursday prior to Game 1 of the NBA Finals that the Miami Heat star will...
AIN'T NO THANG
Check out Jim Ice’s Vine post of LeBron James throwing up a half court shot like it’s a perimeter jumper during the Heat’s Saturday practice at American Airlines Arena.

LeBron James is ready to rumble when the NBA Finals kick off Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs. James posted these photos to his website of him boxing with his trainer with the following message.
If it was easy, everyone would have a ring. How hard would you work and how much would you give to achieve your goal? While most people were at home eating a late dinner in front...
LeBron James had six points, four rebounds and two assists to help the Miami Heat take a 24-23 lead over the San Antonio Spurs after one quarter in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Tiger Woods is back on top of Forbes' list of highest-paid athletes.
The star golfer spent 11 straight years at No. 1 on the magazine's list before falling to third in 2012. The magazine put him back in the top spot after he made 78.1 million over the last year from prize money, endorsements, appearance fees and golf course design work. Woods has enjoyed a resurgence in his...
It was 2007. Tim Duncan's Spurs had just swept LeBron James' Cavs away to win his fourth title. In the hallway afterwards, the two shared a moment.

LeBron James on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals vs. the San Antonio Spurs seems like forever ago. That was back when LeBron was innocent and unadulterated. I actually think this will be a great NBA Finals. Obviously, the NBA would have wished for a bigger market team to play the Heat, but it’ll be a great series.
NBA commissioner David Stern said Thursday that the NBA’s penalties for flopping are far too weak and aren’t enough to stop players from doing it. He then claimed he wasn’t sure if the league would do anything to strengthen its rules against the practice.
This season the NBA implemented a system to crack down on flopping. Players were fined $5,000 for a second offense during...
The San Antonio Spurs will face off against the Miami Heat tonight in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. This will be the first time the Spurs make the Finals without homecourt advantage against the best team in the East, the Miami Heat.
The Spurs will have their work cut out for them in the final series to determine the NBA champion and there will be three factors that will determine...
Flopping in the NBA has become an epidemic at this point, something that has clearly become a part of the game. Even the superstars these days are flopping, just ask the likes of LeBron James and Chris Paul.
The NBA to their credit, made it a point this year that they wanted to cut down on the flopping going on throughout the league. Administering $5,000 fines to players that...
Commissioner David Stern said the NBA's flopping penalties
aren't strong enough to stop the act, though he doesn't know if the
league will strengthen them.
NBA fans won’t forget the infamous November night when the San Antonio Spurs royally ticked off commissioner David Stern by sending their top three players home from a road trip the day of their huge, nationally-televised game at the Miami Heat. The game was appropriately hyped up by TNT because it featured two of the [...]
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“It isn’t enough. It isn’t enough.,” Stern said. “You’re not going to cause somebody to stop it for $5,000 when the average player’s salary is 5.5 million. And anyone who thought that was going to...
