Lebron James Slowly Shaking Off The Rust

Street Artist Gives LeBron James Billboard a New Look

There are no comments yet. Get the conversation started by leaving the first comment

On the basketball front, the four-time MVP physically remains a work in progress as he gradually works his way back into condition over the preseason. Less than a month after he married his longtime girlfriend and then traveled the globe on his honeymoon, James smiled as he admitted he’s still trying to regain his legs. James said his conditioning was about 80 percent of where he needs it to be, but he’d be ready in time for the Oct. 29 season opener against Chicago. I just did a lot of traveling, said James, who spent part of his mid-September honeymoon in Europe and Australia before reporting for training camp last week. That took a toll on my body, getting married. Everyone that’s married, you know what I’m talking about.

Elizabeth Flores / AP jgoodman@MiamiHerald.com Devastated by the death of Adrian Petersons 2-year-old son, LeBron James offered support to Peterson and his family on Friday both on Twitter and before the Heats exhibition game against the Charlotte Bobcats. Petersons son was the victim of alleged abuse on Friday in Sioux Falls, S.D., and news of the tragedy rocked James, who is close friends with Peterson. James expressed both sorrow and anger on Twitter. So Damn sad man! James tweeted. Makes no sense at all. Innocent kid with dreams gets taking away by a coward with no dreams at all! James, who has two sons of his own, went on to add it hurts me to my heart and stomach. Frustrated, James said the alleged child abuser will get whats coming to him!! James reiterated his support for Peterson before Fridays game. I respect him as a father and as a role model and also having two boys of my own, it hit home, so its sucks that its happened, James said. Our prayers go up to his family and his son and it sucks that we even have to have this discussion. Im absolutely angry because its an innocent kid thats taken away because of somebodys stupidity.

I think only time will tell, but they definitely improved their roster bringing in Jennings and Josh, and Big Shot [Billups] as well, James said, per ESPN’s Michael Wallace . [On] paper, they look like they can be pretty good this year. LeBron’s Miami Heat are no stranger to looking good on paper. Their lineup cards have been intimidating for more than three years now. Along with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh , he also understands the challenges Detroit is facing. With so many new and prominent faces, it can be difficult to adjust. When stars collide, the results aren’t always pretty. Or even watchable. The same holds true each time a confluence of second-tier talents join forces too. Sacrifices must be made or partnerships run the risk of failing.

LeBron James Believes in Detroit Pistons If They Follow Miami Heat Example

But then I think of something TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott put eloquently on Wednesday : As new breed analytics have come to hoops, that’s the stuff that excites me. The stuff where not only the best evidence, with the biggest samples, sifted through by the fairest-minded researchers tells similar stories again and again, but where it also lines up nicely (like vegetables and exercise) with things wise people have pretty much always known. In other words, you can keep your petty little squabbles, the he-said she-said tug-of-war between spreadsheet-based and eye-test or tradition-based analysis. The far more fundamental and interesting question to me is: What is basketball common sense now? When you pan for gold in the muddy new soup of everything we know now from stats, video, coaches, players, GMs … what glitters? What are the emerging “earth is round” things that, decades from now, we’ll hardly fight about anymore, ’cause time will make those things look even smarter? The end result of ShotScore and its simpler cousin Extra Field Points is that you get a list that matches up with common sense far better than standard shooting efficiency or scoring volume stats would.

He wanted to make a statement not only on James’ behalf, but alsoas a father of a nine-year-old sonon behalf of a teenager he wants the public to remember. That’s why he added the hashtag. “Nobody can stop LeBron as a basketball player, nobody can stop me as a street artist, and nobody can stop Israel Hernandez’s life and his message. He lives on,” he said. He did, however, want to make it clear that “this was not a shot at police” and that he would feel the same angst if a policeman or policeman’s child was killed. “It’s about someone who lost his life unnecessarily,” he said. In fact, he even praised the conduct of the officers who arrested him. That’s rightTMNK was arrested on 13 counts of criminal mischief, because the paint dripped onto 13 cars.

Kyrie Irving tells kids he won’t leave Cavs like LeBron

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade do extra sprints to work off those cake calories (Getty Images) As a general rule, most nine-year old boys tend to like cake, and video games. A more obscure rule would probably extend to most nine-year old boys really like it when their fathers triumphant picture is on the cover of one of the more popular video games in the world, but its really hard to measure assumptions like that. Left to guess, though, wed assume that LeBron James Jr. had a pretty cool 9th birthday party on Sunday. Were guessing at this because his father, NBA 2K14 cover man LeBron James, posted a picture of his Xbox-themed cake on Instagram before the candles were lit, a cake that featured James video game cover included in the confection.

LeBron James’ 20 points lead Heat to 86-75 preseason win over Bobcats

Heres his response: It will be a while before Irving could leave the Cavaliers, even if he wanted to. He has two more seasons remaining on his rookie contract, and next summer hell be eligible for an extension. If he keeps up his current level of play, the 2012 Rookie of the Year and 2013 All-Star will be in line for a five-year maximum extension of the type that John Wall and Paul George got this summer, which would keep him locked up through 2020. If he really wanted out of Cleveland, he could simply not sign an extension and sign the qualifying offer in the summer of 2015, which would make him an unrestricted free agent in the 2016 offseason. But that move is almost unheard-of, especially for a star of Irvings caliber, let alone one who has missed parts of both of his pro seasons with various injuries. Besides, Irving has given no indication that hes unhappy in Cleveland. Hes been handed the reins of a franchise on the rise with a solid young roster of prospects like Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters and Anthony Bennett. The Cavs could be a playoff team as soon as this season, and theyll have the money going forward to add more pieces as Irving and the rest of their young centerpieces reach their primes.

LeBron James vs. Kevin Durant: What matters when we assess the NBA’s best scorers?

Is that going to be very u seful in one-on-one games? It probably will be if youre with a team. Heres another thing that should be kept in mind when you compare 2 players whos not in the same seasonthe resume. Who has achieved more in the history of basketball? For now, its Jordan. LeBron is 29 but we are still counting. Even though, Jordan might have still won since he came at the right time with the right marketing and became a great influence in a way that even LeBron James could not do. LeBrons resume would probably get longer later on, but Jordan might as well win this argument. Nevertheless , the resume cannot accurately define who the better player is.

La Lakers Rumors: Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash Excited After Dwight Howard Departure, Pau Gasol Stresses New Identity As Rebuilding Key In 2013 Season

Kobe Bryant says Achilles tendon feels ‘really good’

kobe

If he would’ve come back, it would’ve been great. If he didn’t, it’s not. It is what it is.” Tell us how you really feel, Bryant. Howard and Bryant clearly did not mesh well on the court. While Bryant is intense and pushy towards teammates, Howard is laid-back and does not take well to aggression. Both Nash and Bryant were involved in trying to get Howard to re-sign with the team. The sales pitch included talks of a potential championship now that everyone had a year of playing together under their belts. Nash did not exactly blow anyone away in his first season either. However, that is no longer an option, leaving the Lakers to hold out until next summer’s free agency run.

Then Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace and Earl Clark all left the team this offseason, leaving Los Angeles in a precarious position, particularly if Bryant doesn’t return quickly. The Lakers still have aging stars Steve Nash and Pau Gasol but are weak on the wings, likely starting two of Jodie Meeks, Nick Young and Wesley Johnson at shooting guard and small forward.

Kobe Bryant tears Achilles, sidelined for months

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is injured in the second half while playing the Golden State Warriors on Friday, April 12. The injury will take Bryant out for the rest of the season.

“You definitely pull from a myriad of those guys.” The illustrations are out there. So are the challenges that light his easily combustible competitive fires. He wants to prove that his days among the league’s elite didn’t end when he went down with that Achilles tear on April 12. He wants to show that the Lakers’ status as championship contenders didn’t end when Dwight Howard left for Houston (not that they came anywhere close to a championship with him). But one thing the end of Rivera’s career reminds us of is that not even the greats are allowed complete control of their departures. Yes, Rivera’s exit from the Yankee Stadium mound, summoned by Andy Pettitte and Derek Jeter, was a touching moment. And yes, Bryant caught it, even though he was in Dubai.

Kobe Bryant responds to Michael Jordan’s comments on Twitter

Only now we’re back to Kobe, Anthony, Nash and a bunch of odds and ends again. That won’t be enough to take down a healthy Oklahoma City Thunder , Los Angeles Clippers or Golden State Warriors team. That won’t be enough to beat whatever franchise LeBron signs with. Quite obviously, it won’t be enough to land Anthony, either. The hard truth Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Forget about pretending like we know what will happen when Kobe returns from injury. He could return without missing a beat, or his body could wave the white flag in its war against Father Time. We don’t know. All we do know is that last season, Kobe played with a chip on his shoulder and averaged 27.3 points and six assists while shooting 46.3 percent from the floor per game. Next to Howard.

I would say some time in the next three weeks. “But at the same time, it’s kind of conjecture. He can have a little setback or not.

Bryant, 35, has been one of the most durable marvels of modern athletics. Nothing, it seemed, would keep him down for long. But the notion that Bryant would just put on his Kobe face, breeze through rehab and go right back to draining 20-foot, fadeaway jumpers on opening night was flawed from the beginning.

Michael Jordan Says Kobe Bryant Stole All His Moves

(Vincent Laforet / AFP/Getty Images / December 17, 1997) By Eric Pincus October 1, 2013, 12:33 p.m. If Kobe Bryant can win a sixth title, he’ll match Michael Jordan ‘s count. While the debate of who is the best player of all time is quite subjective, it’s fun to mull over. Jordan added a little fuel to the fire with his comments promoting the NBA 2K14 video game, according to the Associated Press. “I don’t think I would lose,” said Jordan, “other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all my moves.” Bryant gave a quick response on Twitter.

“Back then? I don’t know. He’s one of the greatest, if not the greatest player. It would be fun to watch him play, that’s for sure. But I have no clue.” Assuming he returns from injury, Bryant will likely eclipse Jordan this season for third place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Jordan (32,292) has only 675 more career points than Bryant (31,617). When Bryant surpasses that mark, plenty of comparisons will arise. They will again should Bryant match Jordan’s championship ring total (six). As if Bryant needs any more motivation.

Michael Jordan: In My Prime, I Could Beat Lebron James One-on-one, Maybe Not Kobe Bryant

LeBron James, Kobe Bryant respond to Jordan’s one-on-one comment

But it’s good for people to talk about.” Jordan was listed as 6-foot-6 and 213 pounds during his prime. He averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game during his 15 seasons in the NBA. Jordan has made similar comments before regarding James and Bryant. In an interview with NBA TV earlier this year , Jordan said he would take Bryant over James if he had to choose one. And in an interview with ESPN The Magazine , Jordan suggested that King James would not be as successful if he played in Jordan’s era. Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and considered by many the greatest basketball player ever, has had a sponsorship deal with 2K Sports since 2011, when he first appeared on the cover of the popular game. James, 6-8, 250 pounds, has averaged 25.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6 assists during his first 10 seasons in the league. The 50-year-old Jordan, who was a five-time league MVP and is the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, also shared the cover in 2012 with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. This year will be the first time on the cover for James, a four-time league MVP who has led the Heat to back-to-back NBA championships.

Kobe Bryant

Kobe wanted Dwight to kick it up a notch and Howards mindset didnt exactly transcend in Los Angeles. Regardless of their differences, Dwight is gone and Kobe has clearly moved on saying the following about Howards departure during media day on Sept. 28: Honestly, man, I dont really give a s—. Along with Kobe not really caring about Dwight leaving Los Angeles, the five-time NBA champion already had a sense Howard wasnt coming back to the Lakers before their infamous meeting. Kobe believed Dwight had one foot out the door and it turns out that he wasn’t wrong. Kobe met with Dwight along with Steve Nash and Mitch Kupchak to give the final pitch to the three-time Defensive Player of the Year. The pitch fell flat and Dwight ultimately left, but it seems as though Kobe believes Dwight had already made up his mind about Houston. With Kobe caring less about Dwight heading to Houston, the veteran guard is focused on the upcoming season and the team turning things around after the disastrous end to last year.

Lakers’ Kobe Bryant on Dwight’s departure: ‘I don’t really give a s—‘

The most competitive basketball player to ever live thinks that in his prime he could beat Miami Heat forward LeBron James one-on-one. In an interview with 2K Sports for today’s release of NBA 2K14, Jordan weighed in on a long list of players, past and present and whether they could take his Airness one-on-one. LeBron came up. “I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said in the video, before smiling and adding, “Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.” This is actually nothing new from Jordan. Jordan took Bryant earlier this year in a question of which one he would pick. He also said James would not be as successful in Jordan’s era . It’s comparing apples to oranges, but I’m not going to dispute Jordan’s assessment. Jordan’s game is better suited to one-on-one. As freakishly strong as James is, Jordan was surprisingly strong, and has a much higher competitive streak.

Kobe Uncertain Of Return As Lakers Start Camp

Lakers In Barcelona

Howard played one inconsistent season and ditched the Lakers, taking a smaller contract to play for the Houston Rockets . The mercurial center never got comfortable playing alongside Bryant and in the shadow of Los Angeles’ great centers, but the remaining Lakers aren’t sparing much thought for him these days. Bryant replied with an expletive when asked if he regretted Howard’s departure. “If he would have come back, it would have been great,” Bryant said. “If he didn’t, it’s not, so it’s not.” Bryant won’t be alone on the Lakers’ sideline at the start of camp. Gasol also will sit out at least the first few days of practice while easing back from offseason treatment on tendinosis in his knees, and Nash’s minutes will be heavily managed to keep him healthy. The Lakers have several new faces to work into coach Mike D’Antoni’s schemes after adding veterans Nick Young , Chris Kaman , Jordan Farmar and Wesley Johnson in the summer. D’Antoni didn’t get a training camp after arriving early last season, so he’s grateful for the time with the players and new assistant coaches Kurt Rambis and Johnny Davis.

At left is a June 16, 2013 file photo showing LeBron James. At right is an Oct. 2, 2012 file photo showing Michael Jordan. Jordan believes he could beat James in a one-on-one basketball game when he was in his prime.

It’s a shame that he’s kind of hanging it up. But it’s still good to see.” It’s also a shame that the Yankees didn’t qualify for the playoffs. The man who made his name with dominant postseason performances won’t get to pitch in October again … which makes us wonder if we’ll see Kobe, veteran of seven NBA Finals, play again in June. The Lakers aren’t even picked to be the top team in their building this season. Besides the Clippers there are the Thunder, the eternal Spurs, the up-and-coming Warriors and, yes, Dwight Howard’s Rockets above them on the Western Conference ladder. The Lakers can’t entertain thoughts of disrupting that hierarchy until they know exactly what they have in Bryant. Although he reports good progress in his recovery, he still isn’t ready to run without the AlterG machine alleviating his weight, still can’t do defensive drills, still can’t practice.

VIDEO: Jordan says Kobe, not LeBron, could beat him in his prime

“Health is always a concern,” Bryant said. “That can really cripple a team as it did for us last year.” Bryant suffered the injury April 12, shattering any optimism on the Lakers’ already slim playoff hopes. Their success will ride once again on when Bryant returns and if he can mirror last season’s output when he averaged 27.3 points on 46.3 percent shooting, six assists and 5.6 rebounds. “I’ll wait until I’m ready to go,” Bryant said. “Our goal is to win a championship. That’s our expectation. But if we’re struggling and I can’t go because I’m physically not ready, I’m not going to jump out.” Nonetheless, Bryant seemed aggressive with his recovery. He had surgery on his Achilles the day after his injury.

Kobe Bryant Optimistic About His Recovery, But Lakers Have Other Health Concerns

It was a softball question. What did you think Jordan would say? I dont think I would lose. Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves. LeBron was asked about this Tuesday at Heat training camp (in the Bahamas, rough life) and his first reaction was to laugh that Jordan made the comment while promoting his game (remember LeBron is on the cover this year). Then LeBron said, via Brian Windhorst of ESPN: LeBron on MJ saying he could beat him 1-on-1 in their primes: “MJ said that? I’ve thought about the matchup but no one will ever see it.”

Kobe Bryant: No timetable yet for my return to Lakers

I stole some of his..this generation stole some of mine #thecycle Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) October 1, 2013 I like James’ response better, because James is essentially giving him the blank stare. “Oh, really? Cool story.” He doesn’t engage, doesn’t challenge the GOAT, a public fight he could never win, and boils it down to the bare facts, the question is irrelevant. (It’s fun, I have no issue with it, but taking it seriously is nonsense.) MJ on who’s better Jordan says Kobe, not LeBron, could beat him Bryant instead simply acknowledges he took things while basically saying “everyone does it!” I’m not sure what that accomplishes here, but it’s not like either star is losing sleep over it. Their playing days aren’t over.

Kobe Bryant: NBA legend revelling in proving his doubters wrong

(AP) Kobe Bryant stepped off a flight from Dubai and showed up at the Los Angeles Lakers training complex Saturday, joining his teammates for the first morning of training camp. Although Bryant is globetrotting comfortably on his surgically repaired Achilles tendon, hes still uncertain when hell join the Lakers on their practice court as they begin their return from a hugely disappointing season for the 16-time champion franchise. I feel good, Bryant said. I dont think we have a particular timetable as to where I should be right now, but Im feeling good. Kobe is more certain about a few other things: Hell come back strong from his injury, and the Lakers can contend for another title even without Dwight Howard. Our expectations are always the same going into every single season, Bryant said. Improve every single game with the goal in mind of winning the championship. Doesnt matter what anybody else is saying. Thats the goal that we have. After an offseason that began in mid-April when he tore his tendon in a game against Golden State, Bryant likely is still a long way from stepping on the practice court. Yet nobody around the Lakers is willing to predict any timetable for an athlete with almost supernatural recuperative powers.

Kobe, LeBron respond to Jordan’s one-on-one comments

If Kobe Bryant can win a sixth title, he’ll match Michael Jordan ‘s count. While the debate of who is the best player of all time is quite subjective, it’s fun to mull over. Jordan added a little fuel to the fire with his comments promoting the NBA 2K14 video game, according to the Associated Press. “I don’t think I would lose,” said Jordan, “other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all my moves.” Bryant gave a quick response on Twitter. Domino effect. I stole some of his..this generation stole some of mine #thecycle Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) October 1, 2013 Bryant also tweeted a response to the Lakers ‘ ranking by ESPN as 12th in the Western Conference. 12th Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) October 1, 2013 A man of few words in this instance, but clearly it’s on his mind as he works his way back from a torn Achilles.

Kobe Bryant responds to Michael Jordan’s comments on Twitter

Loved by some for his high-flying and impossible baskets, loathed by others for his reputation as a ball-hog and almost psychotic will. But everyone can agree that its his attitude that sets him apart from the rest of us. Bryant has no pre-game rituals or superstitions that he leans on, he just takes to the court each night knowing that he has prepared as well as one can. As a maniacal competitor, Bryant cant help but be frustrated by his current Achilles injury that robbed him and the Lakers of the chance to pursue another NBA ring a ring that for Bryant would be his sixth, matching the achievement of the man he has long been compared to, Michael Jordan. The Los Angeles Lakers maintains that his recovery is ahead of schedule and is confident of a return to the court by the time the new season rolls around. While in rehab, speculation will always arise that this injury might just be the one that sees his incredible 17-year career come to a shuddering halt, speculation that Bryant just loves to hear. I feel good, this is going to be a fun year, said the shooting guard in the UAE for a three-day visit.

Kevin Durant’s Comment On Dwyane Wade Sparks Social Media Feud

NBA Watchability Rankings: No. 5 Oklahoma City Thunder

Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry are part of an exciting crop of young point guards that have made the position the deepest in the NBA. USA TODAY Sports

2; Miami guard Wade comes in at No. 8. Durant stated that former Thunder teammate James Harden , who now plays for Houston, should have been included in the top 10. When asked who should have been left out, Durant replies definitively and without hesitation, “Dwyane Wade!” That didn’t sit well with Wade, who responded via Twitter and Instagram : Don’t believe me just watch http://t.co/4drL3Yevw0 Durant, in turn, issued a challenge for Wade: Show me don’t tweet me.. Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) September 25, 2013 Of course, there’s not much Wade can do along those lines at this point. The NBA season doesn’t start for another six weeks or so. Wade and the Heat won’t face Durant’s Thunder until January or Harden’s Rockets until March.

Kevin Durant Talks About Dwyane Wade in a Radio Interview

His scoring average jumped by 4.1 points a game last season, and it could do the same this year. Anything less than 15 points and nine rebounds a night would be a disappointment. JUST TRY TO IGNORE … The bench: Martin left and wasn’t really replaced, so Jeremy Lamb and Reggie Jackson likely will battle to be the sixth man. Derek Fisher and Nick Collison are veterans who understand winning basketball but don’t contribute much. Steven Adams probably isn’t ready to compete. Hasheem Thabeet is an eternal project. The Thunder have one of the NBA’s worst second strings, an issue that could loom large with an injury or two. FOLLOW THE TWEETS @nickcollison4 : For an old guy (at 32) who claims to be bad at the Internet , Collison is really good at the Internet.

Wade, Durant star in new Twitter beef

Kevin Durant appeared as a guest on NBC Sports Radio Show hosted by Chris Mannix. Interestingly enough, the topic of the social media feud between the two great basketball players were brought up. “I have got to ask you about the blaze with Dwyane Wade and James Harden, were you surprised that it became quite the story that it did,” Mannix asked Durant. “Honestly, I have totally forgotten about it,” Durant answered. “I forgot that I actually said it until I checked on Twitter ,” he added. “As expected, there were a lot of Miami Heat fans that tweeted me awful things,” Durant continued. “I was really not trying to disregard everything that D-Wade has done or contempt him in any other manner. He is truly a champion and his team too. In essence, what I was trying to say at that time was that D-Wade could pass the torch to other guys and I only said James Harden, to name one.

25 Incredible Kevin Durant Highlights for OKC Thunder Star’s 25th Birthday

Look at what went down on Instagram on Tuesday. Kevin Durant said James Harden should replace me in the Top 10… Note to self* Make his respect your place in history … again To which Durant replied: Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) September 25, 2013 This all stems from Durant saying that Harden, not Wade, belonged in Sports Illustrated’s list of the top 10 NBA players for the 2013-14 season. LeBron James is No. 1 on the list, Durant was No.

Kevin Durant feud with Dwyane Wade not ending anytime soon

Highlight No. 2. Thank You, Sir. May I Have Another? We’re on a bit of a crossover kick here, as this entry features not one, but two nifty ball-handling displays from KD.

27 that Durant won’t back down from his claim. Durant said that he felt Harden deserved to be on the list rather than Wade, who has battled injuries over the past two seasons. While Wade has been winning championships, that is more because of LeBron James than it is of Wade’s doing. However, Wade trumpeted his own horn after hearing of Durant’s words. He said it was time to remind Durant of Wade’s “place in history” again. This, of course, is Wade making his claims that he has won a championship while Durant hasn’t. What makes Wade’s statements so ridiculous is that Durant wasn’t putting himself over Wade, he was talking about another player. Wade was just praising himself.

Oklahoma City Thunder: 25 things to know about Kevin Durant on his 25th birthday

“I just want to say I miss you guys,” Durant told a crammed small-college gym filled with about 3,000 fans, many in Durant’s old Seattle SuperSonics jersey. “Thank you for the warm welcome. I can’t wait to come back.” TEAM USA: Durant commits for next summer Durant took part in the Jamal Crawford Summer Pro-Am in Seattle on Sunday. It was his first time back in Seattle in a basketball capacity since the SuperSonics left for Oklahoma City in 2008. He was the NBA Rookie of the Year in Seattle in the 2007-08 season and continues to have an affinity for his first professional city. Durant tried to slip away from the gym quietly, but fans found his SUV and surrounded it nearly an hour after the game ended. Instead of forcing his way through, Durant stopped, signed autographs and posed for pictures from the backseat of his vehicle. Shortly after his game ended, Durant tweeted that he misses Seattle. I love and miss Seattle…damn Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) August 12, 2013 The league organized by Crawford has seen its share of special guest appearances in the past and there are even rumors of a Blake Griffin appearance in the coming weeks.

Kevin Durant scores 63 points in Seattle pro-am

Robert Parish owns the record with 1,611 games played, in part because he played until he was 43. Even if Durant played all 82 games for the next 14 seasons, he’d come up a little short (1,609, two away). So, Durant would have to be extremely durable and play into his 40s. Five best quotes about Durant Doc Rivers:He’s 7-feet tall and he’s running around like a two-guard. He can handle the ball, he can take you off the dribble, he can post you up, he shoots over you. You can’t trap him because he sees right over you. I don’t think in the years that I’ve coached and played, there’s ever been a more difficult guy to prepare for.

Ea Dropping The Ball With Nba Live…again

Canada to host NBA all-star game

The game most likely is not ready. This is obvious by the fact that there is still no 5-on-5 gameplay of NBA Live. Sure they recently released gameplay footage, which you can view below, butin-game footage is not the same as gameplay footage. Dear EA, consumers want information on the game youre making, even if its not ready; one trip to the Live Forums will support my argument. I think the frustrating part of all of this is the fact that EA has been treating its decade-plus-fan-base like idiots. NBA live has a special place in my heart; it was one of the only games me and my father played together growing up.

NBA Media Day 2013: Biggest Moments and Takeaways from Monday’s Events

Spurs: Still Thinking About Game 6 As the Spurs prepare to move forward, they can’t help but think about the past, writes Brian Windhorst. Story San Antonio was five seconds away from winning its fifth NBA title only to watch the Miami Heat rally for an improbable 103-100 overtime victory in Game 6. Almost as heartbreaking was a 95-88 loss in Game 7 that gave the Heat their second consecutive title and handed the Spurs their first series loss in the NBA Finals. “Suffice to say I’ve thought about it every day,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “I’m wondering if it will go away, I’m anxious for it to happen, but it hasn’t happened yet.” Returning to the court as a team should help ease the pain. That’s what the players and coaches are hoping for. The Spurs open a four-day training camp in Tuesday at the Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs, Colo. “As time goes on, as we all know in our lives, you get back to the day-to-day stuff pretty easily, because it’s the nature of life,” Popovich said.

NBA Vet Carter Added to Toros Coaching Staff

Three years later, Cleveland is finally forging ahead. The Cavaliers went 24-58 last year, fired coach Byron Scott and rehired former coach Mike Brown on April 24. The Cavaliers also added center Andrew Bynum from Philadelphia and point guard Jarrett Jack from Golden State in free agency, and made UNLV power forward Anthony Bennett the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. With the work that (general manager) Chris Grant did over the summer assembling this talent, and looking at the individual talent on this team, its built to be a winner, said Brown, who compiled a 272-138 record as Clevelands coach from 2005-2010. There are people out there who are going to say, Well, theyre just coming together or The team is too young, but I dont look at those as excuses. We have to figure out a way to get the job done. Having a healthy roster would be a great place for the Cavaliers to start. Bynum, who last played in an NBA game on May 21, 2012, resumed limited basketball activities two weeks ago. The 7-footer underwent bilateral arthroscopic surgery on both knees in March, and no timetable has been set for his return to full-contact practices.

Kevin Zimmerman, SBNation Posted: Monday, September 30, 2013, 7:17 PM Monday marked media day for a good number of NBA teams, and it was the first time in a long time for the tough questions to be answered — or not answered. In New York, a couple of Knicks discussed their offseason surgeries. Meanwhile, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony both avoided the questions about next summer, when each becomes a free agent. Injured Knicks discuss offseasons Shortly after it was revealed that Amare Stoudemire underwent a third knee procedure in a year’s span, the Knicks forward said he will bring himself along slowly , according to Newsday,but still plans on playing a key role on New York’s roster. Details were still thin on Monday, but Stoudemire said he was already doing conditioning work after a “extremely minor” procedure. “My career isn’t over yet,” he said.

“We are thrilled that Toronto is hosting,” said Deputy commissioner Adam Silver. “As the site of the first game ever in the NBA, Toronto is an ideal location for this global basketball celebration.” The game will be played on February 14 at Air Canada Centre, home of the Toronto Raptors and the National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs. Toronto hosted the first-ever Basketball Association of America game on November 1, 1946, in which the Toronto Huskies lost to the New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Gardens. The BAA was the forerunner of the NBA. The 2015-16 season marks the Raptors’ 20th anniversary.

NBA Predictions: Denver Nuggets Futures Odds

Lets take a look at the 2013-14 Denver Nuggets . Brian Shaw New Head Coach Brian Shaw was hired by the Denver Nuggets in June to become the teams next coach. Shaw has been considered a top candidate for many jobs in the past few years, and hell finally get his chance to lead a team this season. He has been a top assistant for the past few years, and Shaw is seen as a coach who will relate very well to his players. Shaw is focused on putting together a team that can win in the playoffs. Denvers first-round exit in last years playoffs really left a bad taste in the mouth of a lot of Nuggets fans. Shaw recently said that player development is the biggest key to the Nuggets success in the next couple years. I believe Shaw will be a good NBA coach, but its hard not to consider him a downgrade when the team had a veteran coach who was the NBA Coach of the Year last season. Shaw definitely has big shoes to fill.
