The 2015-16 Dunk Contest was almost perfect.  Almost. Somehow, Zach LaVine was able to defeat Aaron Gordon with inferior dunks.  Oddly enough, this happened once before, in the mid-80s, between Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins (Wilkins deserved the trophy in Chicago, but, alas, it was in Chicago). The strange thing about all of this, of […]


This video is something I put together awhile ago.  I should’ve shared it sooner, but I didn’t, so… whatever. I stumbled upon a famous excerpt of a Teddy Roosevelt speech and thought, “well, how appropriate is that?”  I imagined it as a Nike commercial for LeBron during his time with the Heat (imagine a Nike swoosh at the end […]


It’s been some time since I’ve posted here.  Over a year, if I’m not mistaken. The reason for that is simple – after 8 years (or so) of convincing others of the true greatness of LeBron James – and after 4 MVPs, 2 Finals MVPs (2 rings), 5 straight Finals appearances, and particularly after LeBron’s […]

I know it’s a little late to be talking about this, but it’s still an issue out there in the universe of fan forums.  So I’m again in discussions about whether the Heat drafted Shabazz Napier because of LeBron James. We all know LeBron was high on Napier – he praised him on Twitter during […]


So Mario Chalmers told the Kansas City Star that he views this upcoming season as an opportunity to finally have his own team… Now I know Rio is known for his “confidence”, but has got to be trolling. He did manage to say a few things that sounded lucid and sensible: He was a mentor to […]


The one LBJ-Day article that irritated me to no end was “God Loves Cleveland” from Bill Simmons. I don’t know why Simmons chose LBJ-Day to start a Jordan-LeBron debate – it was a day of forgiveness, good feelings and warmsies and fuzzies – he should’ve understood what Ira Winderman did and respected that it wasn’t the right time.
