    Check Out this Bull Dog’s LeBron James Imitation (Video)

    You know what’s really great about LeBron James? He’s complex. You can’t just slap one single label on the guy. He’s not just the greatest basketball player on earth, or a big whiny baby, or a nice guy, or a douche bag, or a hero, or a villain, or a clutch shooter, or a choke […]

    Gatorade commercials will try to tell you that all you need to succeed in sports is a fiery spirit and a willingness to outwork your competitors (and lots of Gatorade). But having good genes helps, too. Just ask the Mannings…or the Hulls…or the Griffeys…or the Wades. Oh, what’s that? Yeah, it turns out that the […]

    LeBron James Nearly Decapitated During Miami Heat Victory Parade (Video)

    When planning a victory parade to celebrate an NBA Championship, double-decker buses probably aren’t the best option if the parade route has a lot of overpasses. Both the buses and the players are abnormally tall, so you’re not going to have a lot of clearance overhead. Things could get dicey. Don’t believe it? Just ask […]

    There have been a lot of people commenting on how basketball has started to look a lot like soccer these days, what with all of the flopping that takes place during NBA games.

    Every Single Shot LeBron James Made During Game 7 In One Animated GIF

    If the San Antonio Spurs had held on to win Game 6 and the NBA Championship, I suspect people would have forgotten about the amazing fourth quarter LeBron James had and focused instead on his late turnovers that could have cost the Miami Heat back-to-back championships. However, the Spurs didn’t win Game 6, LeBron made […]

    Well, this ought to help Miami Heat fans with their image problem. We’re used to seeing rioting and vandalism in urban areas after a local sports team wins a championship (right, San Francisco?).  But on Thursday in Miami, some Heat fans decided to get a head start on the destruction by trashing the car of […]

    More LeBron James Flopping Parody Videos? Yes Please!

    Sometimes I wonder whether we’re being too hard on LeBron James. I really do. I mean, when it comes down to it, he actually seems a lot nicer than Michael Jordan. So why do we give LeBron such a hard time about his character even though we basically gave Jordan a free pass? Then I […]

  • The 9 Players Who Won the NBA Finals MVP Award More than Once

    The 9 Players Who Won the NBA Finals MVP Award More than Once

    Even before the 2013 NBA Finals began, people had already narrowed the Finals MVP candidates down to two guys: the Spurs’ Tony Parker and the Heat’s LeBron James. The thinking here was pretty simple: San Antonio doesn’t win if Parker isn’t at his best, and Miami doesn’t win if LeBron isn’t at his best. Of course, the interesting thing to […]

    Dwyane Wade Has Been Shopping in the Ladies’ Department Again

    Remember last month when Dwyane Wade showed up at the United Center wearing a polka dotted capri pantsuit and loafers? Yeah, that was pretty amazing. But it turns out that it wasn’t just a one-off situation. Apparently the guy is determined to re-define gender boundaries in the world of high fashion, because last night in […]
