“Doesn't say a whole lot, but he says a whole lot with his actions on the floor with how he plays.” Those were the words of Kawhi Leonard’s college coach, Steve Fisher. During the 2010-‘11 college basketball season, Leonard led the San Diego State Aztecs to their best season ever with a 32-2 record and a Sweet 16 berth, losing to eventual national champion UConn. Nobody really knew it at the time, but Leonard’s leadership and outstanding play that year were only signs of what was to come.
The night of the 2011 NBA Draft was a night that altered the future path of the San Antonio Spurs forever. The Spurs decided to trade away George Hill, their back-up point guard who had been one of the their most important players over the past two seasons (not to mention Greg Popovich’s favorite player), for the Indiana Pacers' 15th pick in the draft: Kawhi Leonard.
After seeing some inconsistent point gua...

For those of you wondering what Miami Heat star LeBron James decided to wear to the AT&T Center for game four of the 2013 NBA Finals, wonder no more!
Thanks to the fine folks over at SB Nation, they caught this screen cab of LeBron entering the Miami dressing room dressed in a camouflage vest and black t-shirt/pants:
LeBron James scored 15 points playing with the aggression and ferocity that everyone expects of the four-time MVP, and the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs went into halftime tied 49-49 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
James scored 11 points in the first quarter and also had four rebounds to rally the Heat back from a 10-point first quarter deficit. Dwyane Wade added...
Before the start of game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, Miami Heat star LeBron James threw down a rather impressive dunk during the Heat lay-up line.
Watch as LeBron throws the ball off the backboard and puts it home with one-hand:
It could be that talking to a digital avatar of yourself on the Internet is something the Millennial Generation intuitively understands. Certainly the concept of an avatar that isn't really you requires no leap of the imagination, but that doesn't make it any less awkward for anybody.
Take, for example, LeBron James -- King of the NBA and famous Millennial. In conjunction...
After Miami Heat star LeBron James scored a dysmal four points in the first half of game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry decided to go in on him.
Curry was in control of the ESPN Sportscenter Twitter account and posted the below Vine video of his daughter scoring a basket on a Fisher Price hoop:

Win or Lose it's all about LeBron James. We tend to forget there are 9 other people on the court. He's a force of nature, but LeBron isn't the only reason for Miami's uneven play.
Game 4: Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs
9 p.m./ABC -- Spurs lead 2-1
15 points. 7-for-21 shooting. 1-for-5 shooting from beyond the arc. And, most importantly, Spurs 113, Heat 77.
These are the numbers undoubtedly rattling around in LeBron James' head after his Game Three disaster of a performance that now has Miami almost with its backs to the wall facing two more...
The Miami Heat are set to take on the San Antonio Spurs in a critical Game 3 matchup of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, but Marshall Henderson has more important priorities to worry about. Henderson is a huge LeBron James fan, but he is too pumped for the Season 4 premiere of ABC Family’s [...]
I joined Justin Hull on The Home Stretch to talk about the haters ripping on LeBron James, why San Antonio's role players needed to step up in Game 3 and the NBA Draft.
- Since the 2-3-2 in the NBA Finals, the winner of Game 3 has won the series 92 % of the time (12-1). The Heat beat the Mavericks in 2011 but lost the series.
- The Spurs made 16 three pointers in Game 3 a NBA Finals record
- Danny Green 16 made three pointers are most of any Spurs player in the NBA Finals
- The 36 point loss by the Heat in Game 3 is the worst in Heat postseason...
Game Two was the kind of game good teams have nightmares about. The defense and principals of a team break down and it leads to an onslaught of highlights and talk that makes a player and a team doubt itself. Especially when the stakes are so high. The only thing a team can do to fight all this off is to respond the next time out.
San Antonio HAD to respond the next time out and...
Was anyone else wondering what happened to the fashion once the NBA Finals started? For some odd reason there just hasn't been anything worth talking about since the series began. If anyone was going to sport something strange it would be the Heat
That is, until now.
Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and LeBron James may have discovered the secret to their success; dress like weirdos...
