There’s something about a uniform number that just can’t be described. There have been reports of competitions and compensation for a number, with some payments even reaching the high thousands. As LeBron James prepares for a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, both of his preferred numbers are available. The question is, which one will he choose to wear in 2014-15? Will it be the No. 6 that he donned as a member of the Miami Heat from 2010 to 2014? Or will it be the No.
The NBA Draft is an event unlike any other in the world of professional basketball. It’s an evening that’s dedicated to the future of the association. In the process, it brings together the very best young players from every corner of the world. In today’s somewhat delayed Photo of the Day, an image from the official NBA Instagram account is compared side-by-side to a cover of a May, 2013 edition of SLAM Magazine. One thing can be seen in this intriguing and truthfully expected photo:
Ladies and gentlemen, an early front-runner for Photo of the Year has emerged. In the world of sports, there are times in which athletes transcend the court and build aspects of their legacy off of it. The most growing trend in the NBA is for players to utilize fashion and endorsement deals to steal headlines and remain relevant. Marcin Gortat just one-upped them all. Rather than wearing capris or creating an energy drink, Gortat decided to do something that’s more true to his character. Something that’s… Admittedly, I’ve
The first domino has fallen. The 2014 NBA offseason has officially commenced. In the first major deal of the summer, the New York Knicks traded Tyson Chandler and out-of-favor point guard Raymond Felton to the Dallas Mavericks. New York receives Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert, Wayne Ellington and Shane Larkin, as well as the No. 34 and No. 51 selections in the 2014 NBA Draft. Every member of this trade matters for one reason or another, but the key name here is Chandler’s.
Beware of the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft. With mere days separating the association from its annual selection process, the official NBA Instagram account recapped one of the most important picks of all: No. 2. It showed each and every one of the players selected at that position of the draft dating back to 2005. After 2007, you’re looking at a slippery slope. 2006 featured All-Star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge ultimately ending up with the Portland Trail Blazers, while 2007 resulted in
Sometimes, men and women of fame make innocent comments that are misconstrued by the masses. Other times, men and women of fame pull the ultimate trolls that feed into wild and opinion-based speculation. You can decide which you think Savannah James was guilty of on her personal Instagram account. For those unfamiliar, Savannah James is the wife and high school sweetheart of four-time NBA MVP LeBron James. She’s the mother of his two sons and a native of Akron, Ohio. That last bit of information
Lamar Odom has had a tough few years. His fall from grace included a widely reported drug habit, failed stints in Dallas and in Turkey and a doomed marriage to Khloe Kardashian. So where did Odom turn? Phil Jackson of course. The man who helped Odom become a household name with the Lakers signed him shortly after being introduced as the Knicks’ president, and Odom formally signed his contract Monday on Instagram. Here’s to hoping that Jackson can help resurrect Odom’s basketball career and, essentially,
If Rory McElroy is not jealous, then Rory McElroy truly has ice water in his veins. Less than two weeks after the golfer called off his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki — after the invitations had been sent out — his ex-fiancee made it to Miami on Friday night after getting eliminated from the French Open and joined fellow tennis player Serena Williams and Heat center Greg Oden in postgame celebrations. Wozniacki posted the following photo on her Twitter account:
