After Almost Killing Mario Chalmers, LeBron James Apologizes

LeBron James

We mentioned the flare-up earlier, but it bares repeating simply because of LeBron James‘ reaction to whatever Mario Chalmers was saying in the huddle. James jumped up at ‘Rio looking for blood during a timeout before Udonis Haslem pulled him back to prevent a possible involuntary manslaughter charge for ‘Bron. Later, though, James could be seen apologizing to his young point guard on the bench. Read More »

The NBA has evolved into an athletic, perimeter-heavy league. While this type of emphasis can excite the audience with spectacular plays, strong froncourts are still the belly of the beast for many teams. Teams that boast dominant frontcourts are a force to be reckoned with, especially in the postseason when the game slows down. Read More »

The movie Friday, the 1995 stoner flick featuring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, has become a cult classic over the years. I wanted to begin with a nice quote from the movie, but they all read like a Matt Barnes tweet. Anyway, the film surrounds a 16-hour period in which two unemployed bums (Craig and Smokey, played by Cube and Tucker respectively) must pay a local drug dealer $200 or risk facing his wrath.

Frontcourts are the backbone of every successful NBA team. No team has won a championship without a dominant frontcourt since Jordan‘s Bulls, and Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen could certainly play a little bit. The point guard craze has taken over the NBA, but when is that last time a team led by a point guard won the championship? You could argue Chauncey Billups with the Pistons in 2004, but other than that you have to go all the way back to Isaiah Thomas and the Bad Boy Pistons in 1990. Read More »

Leave it to the NBA to continue to find ways to draw interest in its product, even if the interest being brought is mixed with negative and positive reactions.

It was brought down from the NBA offices Monday night that the league will be giving the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets jerseys with the player’s nickname — instead of the last name — on the back. It’s not a permanent dealing, as it will only be used in certain games. Read More »

Four years ago, compiling a list of the 25 best players in Miami Heat history meant adding on a few that probably would not have been known of outside of Miami. How times have changed. In four years, the Heat have tacked on All-Star after All-Star, Hall of Famer after Hall of Famer and have made their all-time roster one of the best in the history of the game. Outside of Los Angeles and Boston, they have compiled names that could possibly rival that of any franchise that has existed since the earliest days of the NBA. Read More »

Here are a few facts. Mike Miller is 9-for-10 from beyond the arc in the NBA Finals and hasn’t missed a shot in a week. Udonis Haslem is shooting under 43 percent, and is giving the Heat virtually nothing in 14.3 minutes a night against San Antonio… while Miami is struggling to matchup, letting Danny Green and Gary Neal set the nets on fire from deep. Then there’s LeBron James, who told us before the Finals he was 50 times better than he was in 2007. Read More »
