Is NBA helping Lebron return to Cleveland?

  The NBA‘s new collective bargaining agreement has made it harder than an Andris Biedrins free throw to have 3 maximum-level contract players on one team. As a result, the 2014 ‘decision’ awaiting LeBron James has become a lot more interesting. Since the summer, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies have traded away James Harden and Rudy...

Heat return to more conventional lineup

  Miami Heat head coach has spent the past few months promoting what he calls “position-less basketball.” Translation? I don’t have a real center so let’s just go small.

D-Rose must change his game

  Derrick Rose was a star the moment he stepped onto an NBA court back in 2008. His fearless attacks on the rim quickly became legend. Then, in 2010, he took that next step into Super Star status. Equipped with a consistent jumpshot and veteran savvy, he led his team to the best record in the league and...

What is Miami’s best lineup?

  Much has been made lately of the Miami Heat’s lineup inconsistency…partly due to the Chris Bosh injury, partly due to coach’s decision. The Eastern Conference champs have done their best work in these playoffs with a small lineup, having Lebron even playing center at times. This isn’t surprising considering that LBJ is actually...

Is Dwyane tired or hurt?

  For the past few years Dwyane Wade has tricked fans and players alike…gingerly moving around the court only to explode at the blink of an eye and posterize his opponent.
