Bill Laimbeer Says LeBron James is Better Than Michael Jordan

Laimbeer says Jordan could not have led the current Cavaliers team the way James has.

Bill Laimbeer had his fair share of run-ins with Michael Jordan.

 

The former Pistons player battled Jordan many times and with all that being said, he would still pick LeBron James as the best player ever. At about the 4:10 mark, the former "Bad Boy" discusses the difference between the two.

Do the Rockets need to make changes after being ousted by the Warriors?

Few people thought the Houston Rockets could make it this far. They were counted out after falling into a 3-1 hole against the Los Angeles Clippers, only to surge and make a historic comeback in the second round.

 

Such a feat was not meant to be repeated. Although the Western Conference finals was closer than many would have you believe, the Rockets ultimately took just one victory home with them as Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors advanced.

 

'Inside The NBA' Releases a Hilarious Video

It's easy to see why this is the funniest sports show on television.

Some of the best NBA moments happen after the game when the "Inside the NBA" crew is on.

 

Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kenny Smith are the best at what they do. From lip sync battles to freestyling with Nicki Minaj, there's nothing the crew won't attempt. A "best of" video was released to commemorate the amazing year the team had, and we're all looking forward to more.

 

Mark Jackson Gets Choked Up After Warriors Advance to Finals

The former Warriors coach is proud of how far his team has come.

It wasn't that long ago that Mark Jackson brought the Warriors to new heights.

 

He was fired this past year and replaced by Steve Kerr who has taken Golden State to the first finals since 1975. After the Warriors defeated the Rockets to advance to the Finals, play-by-play announcer Mike Breen asked Jackson what was going through his head at the moment.

 

"Well proud... at the end of the day proud," Jackson said while holding back emotion.

 

National Basketball Association Playoff Game Capsules

LeBron James clapped his hands, pumped his fist and jumped up and down with joy on the Cavaliers bench for much of the fourth quarter. He's just four wins away from fulfilling his goal of winning a championship for the title-starved city of Cleveland. James had 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists and the Cavaliers routed the Atlanta Hawks 118-88 to finish off an Eastern Conference finals sweep on Tuesday night. Cleveland advanced to its first NBA Finals since 2007, when it was swept by the San Antonio Spurs. The city hasn't celebrated a title since the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship in 1964. The Cavaliers franchise has never won an NBA title. The four-time NBA MVP James, coming off his 37- point, 18-rebound and 13-assists triple-double in an epic Game 3 performance, advanced to his fifth straight NBA Finals. Kyrie Irving returned following a two-game absence due to a lingering knee issue and posted 16 points and five assists in 22 minutes. The sweep allows Irving to rest eight days until the Finals begin next Thursday. Irving scored his first points 38 seconds into the game and James soared in the air for an emphatic dunk from just inside the foul line a few minutes later en route to helping the Cavs race out to a 12-4 lead. Cleveland was never threatened from there and built its margin to as many as 31 in the fourth.

The 3-point shot has become a divisive metaphor in the NBA

Thirty-five seasons ago, the NBA instituted its 3-point arc. Much has changed regarding the details of this extra, ever-important stripe on the court, but the simple, essential truth of it has remained the same since then. One shot, much further from the rim, is worth three points instead of two.

 

Kenny Smith Destroys Shaquille O'Neal in Mortal Kombat

The two hosts take time out of their schedules for a little video game.

"Inside the NBA" is easily the most entertaining show because of the hosts.

 

Kenny "The Jet" Smith and Shaquille O'Neal took time from their schedule to play Mortal Kombat. A much-needed break. Smith won and then hit O'Neal with the finishing move in reality.
