    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 […]

    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.

    Well, this ought to help Miami Heat fans with their image problem.

    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

    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.

    If you didn’t watch Game 1 of the NBA Finals last night, you missed out. And I’m not even talking about the game itself, which featured an incredible shot by Tony Parker to seal the deal with five seconds left in the game.

    Not Pumped for the NBA Finals? This Ad from ABC Might Help (Video)

    What’s a professional sports championship without a slick, sentimental promotional advertisement? Not much, apparently. Last month, CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada dropped a nice ad for the Stanley Cup Playoffs that tugged at a fan’s heartstrings.
