  2. 2013-14 schedule about more than Heat

    J.A. Adande

    Let's take the newly released NBA schedule as a challenge. Can we get through the regular season without making it all about the Miami Heat? They have carried the season storyline ever since LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh assembled in th...

  3. Multiple dominant games in a series is rare

    J.A. Adande

  5. The case for Howard in Houston

    J.A. Adande

    One of my first college journalism professors, who always used green pens to correct our assignments, would have these Dwight Howard reports looking like a rainforest by the time he finished with them. There's been speculation about Howard's next des...

  6. LeBron drives the star point home

    J.A. Adande

    As strange as it might sound, I view that spectacular 45-point performance by LeBron James Thursday night as a regression to the mean. It was the NBA playoffs correcting course, getting back on the proven path. In order to win a championship you need...

    J.A. Adande

  9. Orlando's pre-Fab Ewing and post-Fab Redick

    J.A. Adande

    For those who think the Fab Five -- with no conference or national championships, what victories they did have nullified by an NCAA scandal, and no rings as NBA players - had no lasting impact, I say it depends how you view things. I see the Orlando ...

  10. Hawk-eye: Wilkins on Griffin, Kobe and LBJ

    J.A. Adande

    LOS ANGELES -- Dominique Wilkins was a spectacular dunker, as Blake Griffin is now. Wilkins was an older player adjusting to diminished physical abilities, as Kobe Bryant is now. And Wilkins was a star who competed in the dunk contest ... something L...

  11. When Shaq Was In LeBron's Shoes

    J.A. Adande

    If there's one person who can provide some perspective on what LeBron James and his advisors are about to go through, it's Leonard Armato. Armato was Shaquille O'Neal's agent during the 1996 free agent derby that resulted in O'Neal leaving the Orland...
