They have spent time in exhibitions together, such as Tuesday, when LeBron James scored 43 points in a charity game just outside of Memphis, with Kevin Durant scoring 29 for the opposition.

Still, plays like this one continue to tell us a lot about LeBron. For instance, he clearly has...
One of the biggest trends that emerged during the NBA lockout has been web-isodes from various athletes giving fans an inside look at how these guys train, play and chill.

We may not have any true NBA action to watch, but there’s always flag football! *Sigh* KD and LBJ are set to square off on the gridiron later this month. Per LeBron’s Twitter feed: “Its all set people! Nov.30th Team @Kingjames vs Team @KDTrey5 in Flag football. Its going down. Can’t wait(Bart Scott voice) Lol.”
To answer the question posed in the above title quickly and clearly: absolutely nothing. Nothing at all. I know it might come as a surprise to many of you, but the Sportress of Blogitude is geared more to be something of a sports humor sight — I know, shocking — and as alluded to and [...]
Here’s an amusing video of LeBron James throwing down a big dunk at Rudy Gay’s charity game last night in Memphis. He was too busy mean-mugging the crowd to give a fan the dap she so desperately craved.

Rudy Gay and LeBron James are already in midseason form. All they need is a place to play. Just hours after the NBA Players' Association told Commissioner David Stern it would not accept the owners' take-it-or-leave-it offer, some of basketball's biggest stars put on quite a show. Gay, the Memphis Grizzlies forward, hosted an exhibition game on Tuesday night -- and points...
