Although LeBron James only went back to Cleveland this past offseason, it is now a very distant memory for most that he was with the Miami Heat last season and won two championships with them overall. Simply put, most are over it and accept the fact that he decided to go back home. There is one guy with the Heat organization who is still scratching his head about James’ decision, though, and his name is Alonzo Mourning. Mourning explained his feelings on James’ departure and provided

Five Things To Watch: Portland Trail Blazers

LaMarcus Aldridge

Things have changed in Rip City. For the Portland Trail Blazers, the 2013-14 season not only represented a return to the playoffs, it ended a drought of not making the second round that had lasted longer than a decade.Yes, the Trail Blazers got taken to the woodshed by the San Antonio Spurs in the conference semifinals, doing just enough against the eventual champions to avoid a sweep. But plenty of other teams got whooped by the Spurs, too. Winning against the Houston

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,

Tweet of the Day: LeBron James Acknowledges Wakeup Call

LeBron James

Not for the faint of heart among two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat fans, Wednesday night—after a two-day trip that included a stop by the White House—the “Heatles” fell to the Washington Wizards in disastrous fashion. The loss was their third straight. Many have insinuated that the Heat have been coasting through the early part of the season. Prior to Wednesday’s game against the Wizards, reigning MVP LeBron James addressed the coasting talk, “We’ll see Wednesday how I’m coasting. You’ll see the

SH Blog: Redick out six to eight weeks; Cavs to move Bennett to SF?

JJ Redick

Earlier tonight, I managed to catch a good deal of the Warriors-Kings game. It was a tough one to pick a rooting interest in: the Warriors have been “my team” since my family left Toronto in 1999 (for Baltimore, and I’m not going to root for a team from DC), but Greivis Vasquez is my favorite basketball player by a pretty wide distance, and I’ve grown accustomed to always rooting for Greivis’ team. Also, their new coach has a great

Tweet of the Night: LeBron James proud of Greg Oden for making successful return to the NBA

Nearly four years ago, Greg Oden crumpled to the floor on a non-contact play in the Rose Garden. The once-promising center never saw action again in an NBA game, but made his triumphant return from the devastating knee injury that nearly ended his career on Wednesday against the New Orleans Hornets. His time on the floor was limited to just four minutes. During those minutes, he collected two rebounds, two turnovers, two missed free throws and one emphatic basket to show

At this point, the novelty of preseason games have worn off, at least for me. It’s time to focus on the upcoming season. Which starts in 10 days, in case you forgot. With that in mind, Tommy Dee looked at who’s doing well in the preseason for Sheridan Hoops. A lot of 2012 draft picks, and a few big men who could mean a lot for their teams. Speaking of which, does anyone think the Pistons will do well this season?
