When the Miami Heat juggernaut that’s claimed the last two NBA titles and appeared in the last three NBA Finals first came together, it didn’t click into place overnight.

That’s what James admits in his exclusive interview with Steve Smith set to air on NBA TV February 17 to cap off TNT’s coverage of the 2014-All-Star Game. Come check out the exclusive excerpt where James talks about the bad aura before the Heat’s long slog towards an NBA championship. Read More »

This has turned into something a little dumb. We couldn’t tell if Magic Johnson was sub-tweeting Kobe Bryant, or just throwing some shade his way with all these recent tweets about all-time NBA greats and entertaining the fans.

But he included Kobe, so lets not freak out anymore. Read More »
