The real issue with shoes that cost somewheer between $100 and $300 isn't Nike or LeBron James but rather the people who act a damn fool over a pair of basketball shoes.
I believe Stoudemire when he says he wants to bring New York back to glory, and he has the game to do it. But his actions in the past two months make me wonder if he'll ever "get it."
How many more games like this is Pat Riley going to watch before he's had enough? If the Heat don't win a title, expect a different lineup, and maybe a new coach, next season.
One of the best players in the league? Unquestionably. But the most valuable player last year? Chicago's success without Derrick Rose this season raises questions.
Given what LeBron James has been through, would it not be natural for him to see similarities between the tone of criticism hurled at Tim Tebow and the criticism hurled at him?
Wait. Didn't everybody already concede a Finals spot to the Heat? Why are they wasting our time with this Philly series? Somebody wake us if the action ever gets . . . you know, heated.
Dennis Rodman is the only player in the past 25 years who was able to consistently take over a game without taking a shot. He deserves to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Bring Chris Bosh off the bench. Start Udonis Haslem. Phrase it however you like, just as long as the team's grittiest rebounder and toughest post defender is on the court at tipoff.
Many fans have high hopes for Tracy McGrady in Detroit, even if plenty of NBA teams have decided he's not worth the risk.
He's a Hall of Famer. But he's also old and obstructive, and he's burned a lot of his NBA bridges. Shaq's free agency isn't as appealing as his ego makes him think it is.
For all of the criticism LeBron James has received for orchestrating the hour-long special and leaving Cleveland, not enough attention has been given to the $2.5 million he raised for the Boys and Girls Club of America.
NBA GMs who miss out on LeBron James and Dwyane Wade should not panic and offer max deals to Amare Stoudemire, Joe Johnson or Chris Bosh.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and other elite NBA free agents could take less money so their teams could sign better complementary players. Will they?
Can you imagine being traded four times in less than two months? It really happened to Quentin Richardson.
