1.Thunder at Heat (Dec. 25th)
These teams are still clearly the two best teams in the NBA. This will be a rematch of last year’s NBA final in which the Heat won in 5 games. All 5 games were pretty close. LeBron James finally got his ring could this be the year Kevin Durant gets his? Durant and James are also very good friends.
2.Celtics at Heat (Oct. 30th)
This was already going to one of the best games on this year’s schedule but when Ray Allen decided to sign with the Heat this match up just got 10 times better. These teams already didn’t like each other. Reports were Allen left the Celtics because of his poor relationship with Rajon Rondo. I am sure Rondo will have an extra chip on his shoulder for this game. As will Kevin Garnett who decided to stay with Boston.
3.Knicks at Nets (Nov. 1st)
What a way to open the brand new building for the Brooklyn Nets. Have your rivals the New York Knicks come to your place. The Nets have had a huge off season and many believe the ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a story about Michael Jordan saying that the 1992 Dream Team would beat this year's incarnation of USA Basketball.It appears that LeBron James has decided to fire back at Mr. Jordan and said that the current Olympic team would win at least one game:"As a competitor you never want to say that you will lose, no matter who you...
More Team USA in their Ralph Lauren opening ceremony attire. LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Deron Williams and more Instagram’d their look for the ceremony. Looks like the team is enjoying the look. Could we be viewing the next wave of jock fashion? Nautical- All American. And as a bonus, Olympic track athlete Lolo [...]
Unlike the U.S. Postal Services, there are no delivery issues with the Celtics mailbag. The questions have not come as frequently since the season came to a close, which is not surprising considering the disappointing way the season ended for the Celtics. If it took you a while to get over that Game 7 defeat, we understand. Still, a lot has happened between now and then. The Celtics...
LeBron James has become the latest member of Team USA to declare that this year's Olympic basketball squad would defeat the 1992 Dream Team if the teams met in a game. The NBA's regular season and Finals MVP joined teammate Kobe Bryant in saying that the 2012 squad would pull it out over the gold medal-winning team from 20 years ago. "The '92 Dream Team paved the...
After a slow 1st quarter the USA cruised past France in their 1st game of the 2012 London Olympics. After the 1st quarter the US was only up by 1 point but they pulled away in the end winning the game 98-71. The US is seeking in second straight gold medal after winning in Beijing four years ago.
Leading the way for the US was once again NBA scoring champ Kevin Durant...
***Although he took just six shots, LeBron James left his fingerprints all over this game. The King finished with eight assists, including a high-speed, no-look dish which whizzed past the head of Boris Diaw (video to be added if and when I can find it). Oh, and then there was this one…
I imagine James would’ve finished with at least 10 helpers had Team USA been able to...
The folks over at Fooducate (a website that promotes better eating habits) recently posted this faux advertisement featuring a picture of some Team USA hoop stars with an interesting tag line.Below is the advertisement itself which features a photo of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Carmelo Anthony in Team USA jerseys with the tagline, "Just Gotta Have Another Big Mac And Coke...
The first game for the 2012 USA Men’s Basketball team is in the books. They throttled their opponent, France, 98-71. Kevin Durant and LeBron James were brilliant for the US, leading them to an easy victory. Great defense led the way to the USA’s blowout of France. Team USA seems destined for Gold. The game was closer than expected in the beginning. The US had only a one-point...

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat will raise their title banner at home on Oct. 30 against the Boston Celtics as part of an opening-night tripleheader, meaning Ray Allen's first game...
Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, the NBA will release the schedule for the 2012-13 season. This is not such a momentous occassion. After all, the 82-game schedule rarely changes as teams play each other virtually the same amount every year. There is little variability in a team's schedule.
Some of the schedule is already leaking out too. We know the Nets will open the Barclays Center in...
Five people were shot Wednesday night at Harlem's famed Rucker Park where former-Knicks point guard Nate Robinson was among the throngs of people who dodged the flying bullets according to witnesses.
