“Bron” this. “Melo” that.
The buzz entering All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles surrounded this year’s first-year phenoms, Cleveland Cavaliers guard LeBron James and Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony. But Suns forward Amaré Stoudemire quickly reminded the basketball world that he is still the reigning Rookie of the Year with his record performance during the ‘got milk?’ Rookie Challenge.
“It feels great, man,” he said after scoring 36 points, the most ever in the rookie-sophomore exhibition, and earning MVP honors. “It’s like a dream come true. Out here in L.A., All-Star Weekend, capture the MVP, break a record… it’s amazing.”

Utah Jazz: ‘Decision’ looks like the right one for James, Heat

For everyone who relished Miami’s collapse in last year’s NBA Finals — one that turned the widely unpopular Decision into a wildy-cheered Defeat — there’s bad news.
The Heat are back — better than ever, looking as good so far...
Tune into Sun Sports at 8:30 p.m. to watch the Miami Heat take on the Utah Jazz. NBA Heat territory.
The Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat may be without Chris Bosh, but that doesn't appear to be slowing down LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
James and Wade look to continue picking up the slack for their grieving teammate, and lead the Heat to their longest winning streak...
LeBron James had 38 points and 11 rebounds and the Miami Heat resumed their season with a 107-93 rout of the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night, extending their winning streak to nine games.
Dwyane Wade added 33 points and 10 assists for the Heat, who at 28-7 are off to their best 35-game start in franchise history.
Miami was playing in its first game since the All-Star break...

The Denver Nuggets' current homestand could be the last for Carmelo Anthony with the team.
With a potential trade in the works, Anthony will try to bounce back from one of his worst performances when the Nuggets host the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, trying to avoid losing four straight for the first time in almost four years.
Dwyane Wade broke an NBA code. LeBron James passed on a last-second shot. Thank you both, gentlemen. It was getting a little too quiet in this Heat season. Welcome back, controversy. We missed you.
Line of the Night: LeBron James (3.78) almost got to WARP factor 4 with his 38 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, and 5 steals. Looking at the numbers below, I think 2-3 more assists might have done it… And since Unathletic just happened to send me a link to the Miami Heat dancers looking pretty awful for the Miami Heat dancers, there’s LeBron’s reward.
Jeremy Lin had 19 points and 13 assists, Carmelo Anthony scored 22 and the New York Knicks turned around the game with their reserves to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 120-103 on Wednesday night.
Steve Novak had 17 points off the bench as the Knicks turned a 17-point deficit into an easy win, outscoring the Cavs 71-42 in the second half. They capped a 10-5 month, their first 10-win...
As I’m sure you’ve heard, Kobe Bryant wore a mask to protect his broken nose during last night’s Laker game. You may recall that a young LeBron James also rocked one about seven years ago after Dikembe Mutombo’s elbow collided cheek bone. Upon learning that Kobe would be wearing the mask, I jokingly tweeted that we could now have a debate as to who’s the better mask...
It is no secret that the Miami Heat have the most athletic and physically gifted team from top to bottom in the NBA. Hell, the Miami Heat may even have the most talented coaching staff on the court. The millions of naysayers and insulting agents of the sports world have no rebuttal when Miami Heat SF LeBron James hits three triples in a row to give the East All-Stars...
