In the end, does it matter? The Twitterverse was buzzing on Sunday as the sporting world awaited the “results” of the 2012-13 NBA MVP balloting. There was no drama. The games had already been played, so the coronation was the only thing awaiting the well-rested LeBron James. Truly, there could not have been a less [...]

With the series tied 2-2 entering Tuesday’s game between the Heat and Pacers, NBA fans pondered a Conference Finals series without the powerhouse, star-driven Miami squad. That concern quickly drifted to the recesses of the their minds once the Heat started to pour it on in the second half of Game 5. Miami opened up [...]

OK, so this has nothing to do with the world of sports. I just felt it necessary to stand back from the barrage of negativity surrounding Roberto Luongo and LeBron James. I have plenty of time to delve into Major League Baseball and the always entertaining NFL lockout chatter. For now, I’ll point you to [...]

Mark Cuban went radio silent for this year’s NBA Playoffs. He stayed in the background and let his players do the talking. Following Sunday’s win, Cuban made the biggest statement of all. He partied on South Beach with the Golden Ball. Look at the way the light reflects off of the glorious orb.

If I were a documentary maker, I’d set out in search of the elusive fourth quarter from LeBron James. It’s not like “Bigfoot” or “Nessie.” We’ve seen the man put up big numbers in the past. Just look at his close-out effort in the previous series against Chicago. For a spell in Game 5, we [...]

Where did he go? If you blinked, you missed LeBron James in Game 4. Sure, he continued his work on the defensive end and contributed rebounds and assists.

Dwyane Wade was the unquestioned star of the Heat’s Game 3 win over the Mavericks on Sunday night, though you have to give Chris Bosh credit for knocking down the baseline jumper that proved to be the game-winner. LeBron James made plays defensively and found Bosh for the game-winner, but Gregg Doyel of CBS Sports [...]

The Big Three got it done. You can spew hate against “The Decision.” You may deride LeBron James for his exit from Cleveland or mock Chris Bosh. I won’t begrudge you that.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose received all [...]
