LeBron James Dunks on Dwyane Wade (Video)

Don’t worry, that headline isn’t a typo nor is it the product of a play that happened in years past. LeBron James dropped 41 points on the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night. Two of them hit Dwyane Wade square in the face. Check out the video of LeBron dunking on Dwyane Wade:

I guess the guy really is an a-hole.  LeBron already intentionally bumped his own coach earlier this year, now he’s dunking on his own teammates? That’s definitely a new low.  Thanks to talkhoops for the video.

Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers Could Mean Many Future Championships

Carmelo Anthony made it clear over the summer that he wants out of Denver and that he won’t sign a contract extension with the team. As a result, the Nuggets have reportedly been discussing a potential trade all season long. We’ve heard about 17-player deals that never materialized, a four-team trade that was supposed to go down, yet Melo is still in Denver and dropping 50 points in a game. On Tuesday, things changed when word emerged that the Nuggets were talking with the Lakers about a potential trade that would involve Andrew Bynum.

If the Denver Nuggets trade Carmelo Anthony to the Los Angeles Lakers, the NBA has no hope of crowning a new champion. Miami? Done. Boston? Not a chance. San Antonio? Remember the Alamo, because it might bring a semblance  of solace. Imagine Kobe Bryant running the wing opposite one of the only players in the world who is as prolific in all-around offense. Then you have Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, two of the biggest match-up nightmares in the league, combined with a five-time champion point guard in Derek Fisher. Haters can hate all they want, but even if the Lakers declined to take the court on defense they would still be able to waltz into the Western Conference Finals.

The Knicks are waiting too long in the gun fight to draw their pistol, and it seems that the Lakers are a dangerous horse in the race. And essentially, all they would have to give up is an injury-prone (albeit talented) center in Andrew Bynum to a team who already has a quality center in Nene. LA has grown somewhat accustomed to life without Big Drew, so trading him would be just like losing him to injury for the season, a scenario they have already faced in 2007-08 when they STILL made the NBA Finals.

Cleveland Cavaliers’ 25-Game Losing Streak Inspires Brilliant Twitter Hashtag

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ futility has reached a new low: they set an NBA record with their 25th straight loss Monday night against the Mavericks. They actually played the hot Mavericks closely and had a chance to tie the game with a three at the end, but they were unable to hoist one up — helpless to the end.

The Cavs have lost four games in February, all 16 games they played in January, and 14 out of 15 games in December. They’ve been defeated in 35 of their last 36 games. 35 of 36! You might as well add an appendage to the saying “The only certainties in life are death, taxes, and that the Cavaliers will lose” because that’s a freaking guarantee.

Think about this: it’s February 8th, and the last time the Cavs won was December 18th at home against the Knicks. How pathetic is that?

It’s been so long since they’ve won, a brilliant hashtag on twitter was created called “#lasttimethecavswon.” LBS’ contribution to the tag (follow us on twitter!) was “lasttimethecavswon Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann called their highlights on SportsCenter.”

There has been much better work done by the masses. Here’s a sampling:

Spike Lee Was Cussed Out by Kevin Garnett at End of Celtics-Knicks Game

Fans can be ruthless sometimes, but they also help make sports as fun as they are. Superfans like Spike Lee are the best because once you achieve an identifiable level amongst opposing teams, you become a source of motivation. Just ask Reggie Miller, who had some of his best and most memorable games against the Knicks because of Spike.

Apparently Spike Lee still can motivate an opponent to this day. In an interview with ESPN, Spike was asked about his most memorable conversation with a player during a game. His answer, as I learned via BSO, is very fitting given recent history in the NBA:

“But this last time against Boston — you know that game where they disallowed Stoudemire’s three? — Kevin Garnett lost it. He was cursing me out for no reason. Maybe because Stoudemire gave him 39 points, but take that vulgarity to Stoudemire. I’m not holding you and I did not even say s— to Garnett the whole game. That really surprised me. He lost it. He was cursing at me the whole game. He needs to calm the f— down.”

Picture: Gilbert Arenas Served Court Papers at Halftime, Laura Govan Lying

Gilbert Arenas‘ on-again, off-again relationship with ex-fiance Laura Govan thankfully is finally over. The two have fought many times (including allegations she cheated with Shaq!) in the past yet they’ve still had several children together and even planned to get married. Now the relationship has come to an end, and Govan is playing dirty.

Govan hired a powerful LA-based attorney who “accidentally” filed court documents in with other paperwork so that it would be available publicly, and the documents miraculously ended up in the hands of the Washington Post. There have been numerous accusations coming from Govan intended to ruin Arenas’ character and make her look like a sympathetic figure.

She claims she was “abandoned” by Arenas and is not receiving any financial support from him. He says that’s b.s., explaining that she’s receiving $20,000 a month but wants more. He also added that the vengeful woman killed his pet sharks.

Anyway, continuing with her low, dirty methods, Govan had Arenas served with court papers at halftime of the Magic-Heat game Thursday night. Check out this picture via Mike Prada from SBN and Brian Packey on twitter:

Gil might not be the greatest person or family man as we’re coming to learn, but Govan is equally as bad and starting to look much worse. At times like this you can only feel badly for the children.

Blake Griffin Blows Up Al Horford, Gets Undeserved Flagrant Foul

Clippers forward Blake Griffin has developed a reputation around the league as a guy who plays all-out, all the time. In most environments, especially sports, people are commended for giving 100%, but this is the NBA, where Chris Bosh can talking about wanting to chill with little reaction from his peers. Most of the criticism of Griffin is the result of the barrage of incredible, and often embarrassing, dunks he’s thrown down this year. Veteran guys apparently don’t appreciate the rookie’s swagger. At the end of Friday night’s game against the Hawks, Griffin may have added more fuel to that fire when he was called for a flagrant foul on Hawks forward Al Horford:

It was obviously a foul, and obviously hard, but I think the refs reacted more to Horford hitting the floor than the contact itself. Griffin appears to be going for the ball and it’s nothing like the obvious flagrant Devin Harris committed on Griffin earlier this season. Luckily for Griffin, Horford was able to get up and it didn’t appear the injury was too serious or Griffin would have taken even more flak. Unfortunately for the Clippers, Horford knocked down both free throws to give the Hawks the 101-100 win.

Ray Allen’s Mom Rocks Got Threes? Shirt

Ray Allen’s mother has become a pretty popular figure at Boston Celtics games. She’s loud, she’s passionate, she’s boisterous, and darn, she looks just like her son. I don’t know how many games she attends, but the cameras always seem to find her. On Friday, she was spotted rocking a sweet tee, as I found out via J.E. Skeets on twitter. Peep the swag:

Awesome choice for her, that’s for sure. And given that her son already has the NBA Finals record for most three-point bombs in a game, and that he’s about to surpass Reggie Miller’s career mark, it’s quite appropriate.

But how does it stack up with the LBS official tee? Pretty similar, I’ll say:
