PLAYERS: Rashard Lewis
TEAMS: Miami Heat
People never get the flowers while they can still smell them. As cliche as that is, it’s certainly true, especially when it comes to sports appreciation. This is the social media age, where everything has to be immediate or a player is a bust, and revisionist history has tainted even the greatest of careers. That’s […] The post The Resurrection: Rashard Lewis And His Long-Awaited Redemption appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.

Report: LeBron set to make $30 million from Beats by Dre sale

Lebron James has absolutely taken advantage of the business opportunities that have come along with NBA stardom. Last month when word was announced that “Beats By Dre” would be sold to Apple for $3 billion, I mentioned how Team USA basketball in the summer of 2008 set the stage for Beats to become a lifestyle brand. Lebron James was on that team. He didn’t take payment...

Heat Check: LeBron James turns it on for Miami in Game 2

The air conditioning was working and so was LeBron James. James, who was knocked out of Game 1 due to cramps, bounced back with 35 points -- on 14-of-22 shooting -- and added 10 rebounds to help lift the Miami Heat to a 98-96 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 in San Antonio to even the NBA Finals at 1 game each. The victory marked the Heat's 13th straight postseason...

Dwyane Wade Fined for Flopping in Game 2 of NBA Finals

Not to be overshadowed by LeBron in Game 1,  Dwayne Wade has been fined for breaking the NBA’s anti-flopping policy in Game 2 of the 2014 NBA Finals. In the clip below, you can see the Spurs, Manu Ginobili obviously misses a swipe for the ball and Dwayne Wade does a bad job of faking an injury.

DeSean Jackson Rips LeBron James and The Heat on Instagram For No Apparent Reason

I have no clue why DeSean Jackson decided to lay in on LeBron James today via his Instagram page, but it is fairly funny. DeSean took aim at the fact that the Miami Heat have a stacked deck with their talent, and Jordan didn’t have that luxury when he was winning rings. All in all, it is a fairly lame argument but we love that DeSean is throwing shade for no reason. Article found...

DJ Khaled Claims Spurs Cheated In Game One

Much has been made of the air conditioning malfunction in San Antonio during Game One of the NBA Finals. The conditions were tough, and played a part in LeBron James having to leave the game due to cramps. Regardless, both teams had to play under the same conditions, and the Spurs pulled out the win. Most people believe it was simply a mistake. Some, like Jason Terry, believe there...

Crossover Chronicles Finals Roundtable: Game 3 Adjustments

DJ Khaled Says Spurs Cheated in Game 1 By Turning A/C Off (Video)

DJ Khaled is a Miami Heat fan, and he showed up to ESPN’s “First Take” on Tuesday to discuss his team. Khaled made bold claims on the show about the San Antonio Spurs, so bold that it even had Skip Bayless confused. Khaled claims that the Spurs cheated in Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals by turning the A/C off on purpose to make the Heat lose. Khaled says his sources for these...

This Dwyane Wade Flop Was Outrageous…Yet Effective

Game 2 of the NBA Finals provided us with one of the more outrageous flops of this basketball season when Dwyane Wade did his best to sell a foul call on Manu Ginobili during the Heat’s 98-96 win in San Antonio. The ref bought it, and I bet he now has buyer’s remorse after seeing this replay. [h/t @CJZero] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

WATCH: Tim Duncan's GF Trolls Miami Heat Fans for Leaving Game Three Early

With the game in hand for the San Antonio Spurs late in the fourth period Tuesday night many of the Miami not so faithful opted to leave early rather than see the game through to the end. That spurned a whole new thing online--Miami-ing. I'm not so sure that one worked as well as #LeBroning or #Parkering, but the clip Tim Duncan's girlfriend took and posted does. Loading...

USA Today is reporting that LeBron James has some interest in being a teammate of old friend Carmelo Anthony via free agency.

Heat fall into 2-1 hole after dropping Game 3 to Spurs

MIAMI (AP) -- History would suggest they did everything right. Oops. Since LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh teamed up for the "Big 3" era with the Miami Heat, there had been some absolute truths when it came to their home playoff games. When they shot at least 48 percent, they were 18-0. When they made at least 10 shots from 3-point range, they were 12-0. And in...
