  1. Andrew Wiggins already making history

    Eamonn Brennan

    So, you've heard of Andrew Wiggins, right? He's a freshman at Kansas. Pretty good at this whole basketball thing. He's the No. 1 prospect who can't stop drawing comparisons to LeBron James, and not because people love to compare young stars to Jam...

  2. Cards' Harrell, IU's Sheehey injured at camp

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's easy to be cynical about summer camps for college stars. There is always some kind of quid pro quo involved -- the Nike-sponsored LeBron James/Kevin Durant/Chris Paul/etc. Skills Camps often feel like they exist solely to pack scouts onto plasti...

  3. Coach K now LeBron's surrogate mentor

    Eamonn Brennan

    When LeBron James was an 18-year-old NBA rookie, he averaged 20.9 points, 5.9 assists and 5.5 rebounds in 39.5 minutes per game. It was by far the worst season of his career -- by the time he was an NBA "sophomore" he was well on his way to putting u...

  4. USA teens dominate at FIBA Americas

    Eamonn Brennan

    Never fear, you basketball-loving, Dream Team-worshipping, blueblooded American, you: The United States is still producing the best basketball talent in the world. Of course, you don't need me to tell you that. One glance at LeBron James should do...

  5. Jabari Parker's family tries to shun the hype

    Eamonn Brennan

    When you're Jabari Parker, the best player in the class of 2013 -- and, according to the cover of Sports Illustrated, "the best high school basketball player since LeBron James" -- it's not easy to live a normal life. Not when college coaches are con...

  6. Afternoon Links: From good to great

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Afternoon Links are (intermittently) back, and they are exactly what they say they are. Some days will bring more than others. This is the offseason, after all. If you have a link you'd like included, your best bet is to hit me on Twitter. You ca...

  7. Before playoff win, D-Wade stopped at IU

    Eamonn Brennan

    Dwyane Wade's relationship with IU coach Tom Crean is well-established. Crean coached Wade during his breakout seasons at Marquette from 2001 to 2003, the latter of which included a run to the Final Four and a junior season that established Wade as a...

  8. LeBron James plays pickup at Kentucky

    Eamonn Brennan

    John Calipari's relationship with LeBron James is no secret, nor is it anything new. But it does remain a huge competitive advantage. High school basketball players may not universally like LeBron James -- the dude's Q rating hasn't exactly been t...

  9. Thomas Robinson holds own vs. LeBron

    Eamonn Brennan

    Thomas Robinson's summer just keeps getting better. The KU forward dominated for large stretches at the Chicago Nike Skills Camps in June against some of the best forwards in the country; he flashed the kind of athleticism and rebounding ability that...

  10. Miami, UK to sport LeBron James gear

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last year, I was watching a late-season Ohio State game with my buddy Paul. Paul, like myself and many in our demographic, is a college basketball shorts enthusiast. Paul was impressed by the subtle changes in OSU's uniforms from one year to the next...

  11. And now, finally, your Big East schedule

    Eamonn Brennan

    Sure, the Big East schedule took a little longer than most other conferences -- you have LeBron James to blame for that -- but like the prodigal son, the schedule is here now, and that's all that matters. Yes, the Big East announced its schedule a...

  12. Lack of Big East schedule LeBron's fault

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's fun to blame LeBron James for things. The sporting summer's utter lack of self-awareness and perspective? Blame LeBron. A free-agent fracas that annoyingly consumed our worlds for several months? Blame LeBron. An NBA whose stars must now consoli...

  13. LeBron still making college news, too

    Eamonn Brennan

    The summer of LeBron James was supposed to be over a while ago. But it's the tail end of August, and still LeBron -- who entered our collective college consciousness during the Tom Izzo-Cleveland Cavaliers flirtation this offseason -- is invading the...

  14. Anthony Davis wants to make you sweat

    Eamonn Brennan

    At least Anthony Davis Sr. has a sense of humor about his son's recruitment. Either that, or LeBron James' legacy is already being felt, and I don't like it. Anthony Davis Jr., as you may know, is the No. 12-ranked player (and No. 4 ranked power f...

  15. OSU still cool with LeBron James

    Eamonn Brennan

    So here's an indirect and unlikely consequence of LeBron James' famed departure from the greater Ohio area: What happens to his relationship with the Ohio State Buckeyes? Since James began his own Nike basketball line, the Buckeyes have sported un...

  16. Tom Izzo made the right call

    Eamonn Brennan

    Hey, remember Tom Izzo? Who almost left his hero-for-life gig at Michigan State for a potential opportunity to coach LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers? Izzo's decision already looked like the smart one. After all, he never received any assu...
