At this point, I’m not sure any signature line of sneakers draws as much attention from custom artists as the Nike LeBron X does. The latest eye-opening custom design was created by Kickasso of Kickasso Kustom Sneakers. The Nike LeBron X “Haden Highlighter” was made for Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Read More »

When Nazr Mohammed lost his mind on Friday night and put LeBron James on the floor with a two-hand shove, we were kind of shocked by the amount of people we heard from on the site/Twitter/Facebook calling ‘Bron an actor, saying he was flopping. Huh? Nazr is a huge, very strong guy, who in the moment was blind with rage – of course he’s strong enough to take down all 6-8, 250 pounds of LeBron when he’s not ready for it. But there it was from fans and Bulls players alike, mocking James for flopping.
So why the skepticism and outrage? Well, you can argue that James has brought it on himself. Some of his work in the flopping department over the years rivals the work of Manu Ginobili and Derek Fisher, the Obi-Wan and Yoda of Flopping [Check out The NBA's Top 20 Flops and Fisher's title as the NBA's Worst Flopper], and it seems to have ramped up in the last two years.

So many questions … Why did Nazr Mohammed decide to swipe at LeBron James at half court? Why did LeBron get a T for peeling Nazr off of him? Why did Nazr then – after being handed a gift of a James technical foul – decide to shove LeBron like that and get himself kicked out in the process?
Watch it here – we can’t wait to hear explanations after the game: Read More »
Everyone needs a little help, right? Michael had Scottie. Kobe had Shaq. Michael Jackson had The Jackson 5. LeBron needed D-Wade. Virtually everybody needs a helping hand to withstand the rigorous tremors on the road of life. But thus far in his young career, Kid Ink has established himself as a reputable independent artist with little to no help. Read More »
When it was announced that LeBron James would collect his fourth Most Valuable Player award. No one, except the Boston Globe‘s Gary Washburn (and he’s entitled to his views), wanted to be caught with a stain on their ballot … and rightly so. However, does that mean Kevin Durant‘s work (50/40/90 shooting averages and the West’s top record) should go without a well-earned receipt?
For the uninitiated, pro baseball hands out trophies for their top rookie, best pitcher, leading manager and most trustworthy fielder. MLB’s major awards are akin to the four biggest accolades handed out in the NBA – Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year – except that they’re given out in both the American and National League’s, respectively.
Given the NBA’s visible conference divide, isn’t it time that both the elite from the East and the best playing out West serve as different streams of power for their own lighthouses? If baseball, with clear distinctions between its two leagues, awards its players accordingly, shouldn’t the NBA look to do the same? Read More »
Now this is the Miami Heat squad we saw all season. LeBron James and Co. are doing what they want to the Chicago Bulls and making the savage beating they’re administering look easy in the process. [Miami isn't even going to need the Nate Stopper tonight.]
Example A: James’ sick backdoor pass to a slashing Dwyane Wade. Read More »
We now live in a world where Nate Robinson strikes fear in the hearts of opponents, especially in winning time. Remember his amazing 4th quarter takeover against the Nets? How about his ice-cold dagger shots to slam the door on Miami in Game 1 on Monday night?
The Heat, living with those Game 1 nightmares, are not eager for a repeat performance and are looking to keep Nate in check the best way they know how: Sick LeBron James on him. Read More »
