It’s a beautiful morning in Indiana, along with every other place where folks drink Haterade. You see, there is no disliking the Heat. It’s not that simple. You either like them, or you hate them. (At least that’s what the folks in South Florida, especially the superstars, would have us believe.) So if you rejoice in the fourth-quarter failures of LeBron James, you have something to celebrate today — plus you get a second helping of Hater Tots because you get to
// We might be looking at a 2-0 series lead for the Boston Celtics if their end-game execution was a little more sound. By ordering Rajon Rondo to commit a foul with 14.4 seconds remaining, Doc Rivers and the Celtics gave away whatever chance they had of getting a stop, calling a timeout and inbounding from midcourt to go for the win. To recap: Rondo missed an open foul-line jumper that would have given the Celts a three-point lead with 54 seconds to
First of all, props to Kyrie Irving for winning Rookie of the Year. When he and Anderson Varejao were playing together, the Cavs were one of the best watches on League Pass. There was never any doubt Irving was going to win it, and the best debate was over who was most worthy of 2nd place. I cast my 2nd place vote for Kenneth “Manimal” Faried of Denver, but the second-place winner was Ricky Rubio — who also provided a helluva a
Vinny Del Negro is under contract for one more season, but it is a team option. And mercurial owner Donald J. Sterling has a checkered history when it comes to making commitments to coaches — and even when it comes to making good on his prior commitments, such as when Bill Fitch had to take him to court to get the remainder of the money that Sterling owed him. In this interview with CineSport’s Noah Coslov, SheridanHoops.com editor-in-chief Chris Sheridan says Del
It was just a couple months ago that the “Save Vinny’s Job” homestand began for the Los Angeles Clippers. They returned home reeling from a seven-point road loss against New Orleans, the worst team in the West, and had lost eight of 12. What has happened since has been the second renaissance of the former laughingstocks of Los Angeles, and Del Negro coached his kiester off in Game 7 of the first round against the Memphis Grizzlies, riding the players
Congratulations to LeBron James on winning his third MVP award. Now go win a title. Seriously. Neither of us is getting any younger. As avid readers of this site are aware, I cast my MVP vote for Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, for reasons stated in this column. Five other voters agreed with me from a cast of 121 voters – sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada, as well as an NBA.com MVP fan vote. James collected 85 first-place votes. Kevin
Mike Brown will be coaching his final game for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight if they lose Game 7 to the Denver Nuggets. Says who? Magic Johnson, that’s who. “His job will go,” Johnson said on ESPN, where he is a studio analyst. “The Lakers are about championships. That’s what the Lakers are about. If they lose this game, Mike Brown, I bet you, will not be sitting there.” Johnson sold his 4.5% stake in the Lakers in 2010, but he remains on the
