Kia MVP Ladder: LeBron James starts at the top as new chase begins | NBA.com

Sekou SmithJanuary 08, 2021 3:30 PMLakers star LeBron James once again has himself in the MVP mix as a season begins.In theory alone, the inevitable reshuffling of the Kia MVP chessboard makes sense at the start of a new season.Change, of some sort, is on the way.Good luck convincing the ruling class of such things.For every ambitious newcomer to the conversation, there is an incumbent refusing to abdicate their position.So even when the oddsmakers cast Luka Doncic as the favorite to ascend to the top of the MVP heap in his third NBA season, four-time Kia MVP LeBron James steadies himself...

Steve AschburnerJanuary 06, 2021 2:24 PMThe Knicks, Nuggets and Warriors are all creating some early-season storylines.Typically it takes two months on the NBA calendar to get into early days of January. This season, it’s taken all of two weeks.But based on the games, the news, the injuries, the purported trades, some controversies and the vital and unusual in place for a non-bubble 72-game season, the first two weeks of 2020-21 seem to have had two months worth of everything.Except, of course, a James Harden trade, which might never come.Here are five takeaways from 15 days:The return of...

Brian Martin, for NBA.comDecember 30, 2020 7:13 PMLeBron James will likely celebrate his 36th birthday by reaching a milestone that no other player has achieved before him and one that will take any player many years to possibly challenge.LeBron enters Wednesday’s game in San Antonio () having scored at least 10 points in 999 consecutive regular season games. If (and when) he reaches double-figure points against the Spurs, LeBron will be the first player to have 1,000 straight games with at least 10 points.He already owns the longest streak in NBA history — of 866 games on March 30, 2018 —...

Sekou Smith ORLANDO, Fla. -- Long before he cemented his All-Star status and carved out a space for himself as one of the best young big men in the NBA, Jimmy Butler was telling anyone who would listen that Bam Adebayo was the heart and soul of the Miami Heat.Butler was the Heat’s prized free agent, the player whose arrival signaled the formal shift from the Dwyane Wade era to the future.Butler, however, made it clear from the start that Adebayo’s work ethic, character and relentlessness would be the traits that served as the support for whatever course Miami set this season.That path runs...

Film Study: Heat's zone defense sends Celtics south in Game 2 | NBA.com

John SchuhmannMiami returned to a zone defense, which helped it erase a 17-point deficit.There are a lot of things about life in 2020 that a younger you would not believe. Maybe one of those is that zone defense is playing a big role in the NBA playoffs.A year after Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse broke out a "janky" box-and-one in the NBA Finals, zone defense remains more than just a gimmick to get a stop or two. And if the Miami Heat make it to this year's Finals, we may point to 20 minutes of zone defense on Thursday as a big reason why.The Boston Celtics' own defense was good...
