Just Hold On, and Stay Home

It started in 2010. That summer the NBA changed drastically and still has not been the same since. It was the summer where players began to take power into their own hands, abandoning the teams that drafted them and teaming up with other stars to win championships.

The comments spewing from the mouth of LeBron James recently have certainly been head-scratchers to say the least. First he decides to make the claim that there are no rivalries in the East. Now he decides to call a number of ex-Celtics hypocrites.

Bold statements, King James. Time for your crowning as King of Fantasyland.

I’m sitting on a leather couch in an upscale bar on Fulton Street and New York Giant cornerback Prince Amukamura is a few feet to my right. My colleague/friend/socializer Kris Venezia is next to me and we engage in conversation to avoid any awkward stares in our direction, which we knowingly received from many people, including Hannah Storm’s younger daughters to our left. You see we inadvertently had situated ourselves in the VIP section of the bar, an open room with neon lighting that offered us a chance to breathe.

The Streak Might Be Over, But These Heat Are Still Special

Almost three years ago the in-your-face summer spectacle at Miami's American Airlines Arena,  celebrated the arrival of LeBron James. He was asked if he took his talents to Miami to win a championship and he famously proclaimed, "Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven." This came on the heels of James and ESPN partnering for the tasteless special, "The Decision," leaving him and the Heat as public enemy No. 1. In the ensuing months the team was booed in every arena, ripped to shreds all over the Internet, and crushed by most talking heads.However, when Miami’s Team President Pat Riley was recruiting James to the Heat during the summer of 2010 he sold the reigning MVP on the chance to be the focal point of not just a Champion, but a dynasty.
