Mario Chalmers scored 22 points, Chris Bosh ended his shooting slump and added 15 points and nine rebounds, and the Miami Heat snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Brooklyn Nets 95-83.
We reached out to our sports radio personalities from across the country to get their opinion on James’ decision. Here’s their reactions:
With Carmelo Anthony apparently off the free agent market, the spotlight rests squarely on LeBron James. Where will he go? One NBA expert is convinced he’s going home.
LeBron James singularly orchestrated the Big Three union. And now that he has opted out of his Miami Heat contract, he’s once again the Alpha Male of pro sports. Teams are scrambling to find the proper finances and expiring contracts, flipping over cushions for salary cap coin.
LeBron James went to the bench midway through the fourth quarter, took a seat and covered his eyes with his left hand. His night was over. His reign atop the NBA, also over.
Carmelo Anthony just wants to win. And a chance to team up with the Miami Heat’s Big Three could be too good to pass up.
LeBron James scored 22 points, Chris Bosh added 18 and the Miami Heat took a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series by beating the Brooklyn Nets 94-82 on Thursday night.
They say star players win championships. The Heat have three of them — and two straight titles. Kidd and the Nets are hoping to stop them in their tracks.
The Nets swept the regular-season series, and that has the Heat’s full attention as the sides get ready to lock horns in the playoffs. Miami, the league’s two-time defending champion, will host Game 1 on Tuesday night.
Miami’s Chris Bosh and teammates Dominique Wilkins and WNBA player Swin Cash had a final-round time of 31.4 seconds.
Deron Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night.
How do you follow up one of the greatest NBA Finals games in history? The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs did just that Thursday night with the greatest spectacle in sports, a Game 7, winner-take-all game at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
I doubt it will be the case, but this series should put all those outdated and nauseating LeBron James narratives out to pasture once and for all.
LeBron James had 37 points and 12 rebounds and the Miami Heat repeated as champions with a 95-88 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
The truly memorable teams won the hard way, and that will be the case for the one celebrating at center court this time.
