Tweet of the Night: Bill Simmons believes LeBron James will likely opt back in with Miami

Bill Simmons

While LeBron James soaks in the humbling loss against the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, many are left to wonder what’s next in store for the best player in the league. Will he opt out of his current deal or stay another year with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade? That probably depends on what Pat Riley has in store for this offseason. Mario Chalmers, Chris Anderson and Rashard Lewis are free agents. Shane Battier is retiring and Ray Allen is

Tweet of the Night: P.J. Tucker makes fun of flopping soccer players

tucker

Flopping has been an issue in the NBA for many years. It’s something the league has attempted to diminish by handing out fines, but the players still do it at times for a competitive advantage, particularly during the playoffs when the stakes are much higher. What they pull in the NBA is nothing compared to some of the things soccer players do on the field, however. Take these clips, for example:

SH Blog: Source close to James questions if he has options better than Miami, Dirk would love to see Anthony in Dallas

LeBron

So now what for LeBron James? A miraculous Ray Allen 3-pointer helped King James eventually get to a second championship last season. This year, the Miami Heat never even put themselves in position to cut their deficit to single digits in the final three games. In fact, the San Antonio Spurs outscored the Heat by a jaw-dropping 70 points in five games in this year’s Finals – the biggest point differential in NBA Finals history. That means James lost to the Spurs

With the NBA season over for Jeremy Lin, the point guard can finally take some time for himself and enjoy the early stages of summer. One thing Lin has taken an interest in over the years has been the use of youtube and interacting with some of the stars on it. Recently, he appeared as a guest star on Ryan Higa’s youtube channel to play an interesting game of “I Dare You”, where he was forced to eat an orange peel

NBA players react to Spurs’ dominance and Heat’s lackluster play in Game 4 of the Finals

diaw

When you play the San Antonio Spurs, there is always a risk of getting completely blown out of the game – sometimes by half time. You just don’t expect the Miami Heat to be one of those teams. In two consecutive games in the NBA Finals, no less. No matter how you predicted this series would go (I predicted Spurs in 6), no one could have seen this coming. The Heat were supposed to be the most formidable bunch for the Spurs after

Tweet of the Night: Stephen Curry is ready to outwork everyone

Stephen Curry

From a team’s standpoint, Stephen Curry has had somewhat of a forgettable year. Despite winning an impressive 51 games during the regular season, it was an up-and-down year for the Golden State Warriors as they failed to become one of the power-house teams of the Western Conference as many expected. On some nights, they looked about as good as any team in the league. Unfortunately, there were other nights where they looked worse than the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ultimately, they ended up with the

SH Blog: Heat looking to make a run at adding Carmelo Anthony, Stoudemire calls out young teammates

LeBron James Kevin Durant Carmelo Anthony

There have been plenty of speculation on whether the “Big Three” in Miami will remain intact beyond this season. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all have the ability to exercise an early termination option for next season to become unrestricted free agents. What they decide may depend largely on what happens in the Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, but there is another plan possibly in play. Make it the “Big Four” by bringing in Carmelo Anthony. It almost sounds crazy,
