Paul Silas: LeBron Not always Liked by Teammates in Cleveland

By all accounts, the Miami Heat are an extremely close team. From their unity and willingness to share the ball on the court, to the fun they obviously like to have off the court, if there was ever a team who considered themselves brothers it is probably this squad. With LeBron James qualifying as their best player, it can be safely assumed that he is their leader and certainly...

Mike Dunlap will need some help on the court

Mike Dunlaps name doesnt roll off the tongues of most basketball fans. Not to mention many hardcore ones. But winning the news conference in the NBA isnt the same thing as winning it in college. Its far more important in college to excite a fan base with a coaching hire than it is in pro sports because fans dont buy NBA tickets to see coaches. They buy them to see players. And...

Last week, the Bobcats decided not to bring back Coach Paul Silas for the 2012-2013 season.  Though it should be noted that they’re keeping him on as a consultant, which—given this team—is arguably a crueler thing to do than simply firing him.  Anyway, the search is now on for his replacement.  Besides the qualities mentioned [...]
