All eyes on Miami Heat’s LeBron James

There seem to be dueling sentiments when it comes to LeBron James and how to treat his 2011-12 season.

Heat's Big Three show support for Chris Paul

MIAMI - LeBron James did it. So why shouldnt Chris Paul be able to choose his team? Then again, at least James waited until he became a free agent. I want Chris to go wherever he wants, James said Friday on the first day of Miami Heat training camp about the chaos surrounding the New Orleans point guard. And I just want him and his family to be happy. James and Paul are good buddies...

MIAMI - Turn up the sauna. Light a Bunsen burner. The Heat doesnt mind if the heat is on.

Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Other Superstars Are Not Hurting NBA's Competitive Balance

The storyline involving LeBron James and "The Decision" was so tidy, it's no wonder NBA supporters and detractors alike embraced it last season.

The danger...

Name the crimes of David Stern

The night of The Decision, I was blown away at the vitriol surrounding LeBron James. He didn't play where you wanted him to play. He had a TV show. Bummer. It still amazes me how fired up that makes people. I wrote a post asking people to name the crimes of LeBron James. I feel the same way today. When I first heard about this Chris Paul thing, my first thought was "oh...

NBA Gets One Right, Rejects Paul Trade

I understand why an elite athlete would want to join a couple other elite athletes in order to form a super team. I get that in a perfect world have a team of more elite players than the other team should mean that it would be easier to win a championship. Afterall, everybody wants to win a championship. After seeing what LeBron James and Chris Bosh did last offseason by joining...

Trading Dwight Howard for LeBron James makes sense

Even Heat would have to ponder blockbusterThe Magic will be asking the world for Dwight Howard now that he clearly wants to move on.

Are you going to go my way?

You ask around the NBA the old question about which player you’d pick if you were starting a team and the general answer is LeBron James or Dwight Howard. I’d pick Derrick Rose, and I’ll explain later why that is not just personal bias. The irony, of course, is if James and Howard were to start a team they’d look for someone else, which basically LeBron did in joining Dwyane...

ASK IRA: Do Heat have their closing lineup?

Q: How likely is a Heat lineup of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Shane Battier, Mike Miller and Chris Bosh? And what do you think about it? — Aaron. A: Look, I believe without any further moves, the Heat already have their closing lineup. If the opposition goes bigger, it could be Bosh, Udonis Haslem, LeBron, Wade and either Miller or Battier. If the opposition goes small, then you...

Gameday Q&A: Barry Cofield on the move to nose tackle, LeBron James and Jay-Z

As Mike Shanahan, Jim Haslett and the Washington Redskins entered Year 2 of the 3-4 defense, they identified nose tackle as a key need in free agency, and signed Barry Cofield for a six-year, $36-million contract.
