The "6 Degrees of Terrell Brandon" was invented on this week's episode of "The Wine & Gold Show", heard only on "The Wine & Gold Show", heard only on TheDugoutSportsShow.com and StepienRules.com. We examined what players have been connected to Brandon in trades and draft picks, including Cavaliers guard Daniel "Boobie" Gibson. Shawn Kemp was also discussed and we predicted our "balloon" players when the lockout ends. We also talked about Scott Raab's new book called "The ***** of Akron", which is about who else, LeBron James.

While speaking to students recently in Albany, the Hall of Fame point guard peppered his speech with some jokes at LeBron's expense.
John Link is the best basketball player to ever come out of Padua High School in Cleveland, OH and one of the best players in the history of Case Western Reserve University's Men's Basketball Program as well. He currently works for OhioBasketball.com, and wrote the following for us here at Stepien Rules on Wednesday.Speaking in upstate New York to a group at the University...

LeBron James was recently ranked the #1 NBA player by ESPN….Kevin Durant didn’t even crack the top 5…Today, Bron Bron and KD hit the St Vincent St mary gym to get in some practice time…Could this be a prelude to a Heat/Thunder finals one day?? -TO

You knew Scott Raab’s book on LeBron James was not going to be a love letter when the working title was “The ***** of Akron.” Now that is the official title and the book is close to being ready for your Kindle (it’s released Nov. 15). To pimp it, Esquire has an excerpt (which shouldn’t…
Recently, Lakers legend Magic Johnson was at the University of Albany to give a speech and during said speech, he decided to take a quick jab at Miami Heat star Lebron James inability to win an NBA title: (Courtesy of Slam Online)
In what looks like an otherwise harmless speech at the University of Albany, Magic Johnson fired multiple verbal shots at LeBron James while (presumably) speaking to a group of students. You’ll see the first at the 1:08 mark in the vid above. (H/T: Terez Owens)

Due to the ongoing NBA lockout, we have been deprived of the chance to watch many of the world’s best basketball players in meaningful competition. This will continue to be the case until the work stoppage is resolved.
However, if you’re into endless highlights and glitzy hoops showcases (and I know you are), there’s good news: many of the...
Apparently even when he’s not playing, LeBron James can’t win.
Says who? Says Magic Johnson.
Magic, of course, also said he was kidding during a motivational speech in Albany, N.Y.
Still, it will be interesting to see exactly what the look will be on LeBron’s face the next time Magic decides to sit next to his former Lakers coach and current Heat executive Pat Riley at a Heat...
Q: Ira, as you have been reporting on the new CBA deal, it is becoming a bit more apparent that teams like the Heat will have some financial difficulties in filling out the roster via free agency and trades. I think in a twisted sort of way this might be a good thing. Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will have no choice but to raise their game knowing that there is no cavalry...
We’ve been hearing rumblings and kind of waiting to see when a huge, star player barnstorming tour would gain some traction. One that features Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose and many others. It has — and the fact it gets leaked on a key day of NBA labor negotiations is no coincidence…
If Magic Johnson ever wants to add stand-up comedian to his lifetime portfolio of accomplishments, he's got some material for his act -- at least, until LeBron James finally wins that elusive first NBA title.
