Coach Mike D’Antoni’s small-ball lineups featuring 6’5 PJ Tucker as Houston’s starting center have been dismissed as gimmicks. However, there is value for bettors to take a flyer on the Rockets winning the championship at +1500 odds. The truncated season works […]

Boxed In: Looking back at LeBron's 'Decision' 10 years later

It's been ten years since LeBron James changed basketball forever and took his talents to South Beach to play with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat in search of his first NBA title. Yahoo's Vincent Goodwill, Chris Haynes and LaJethro Jenkins look back at the last decade of basketball to see if "The Decision" was the right one to make. While it's easy to look back and say the move worked out after two titles, James was widely criticized at the time for breaking up with Cleveland on national TV, though the TV special did raise $2 million for local charities in Ohio. Looking back, should James have picked the Heat? Stayed in Cleveland? Could LeBron have saved the Knicks? And, in the 10 years since "The Decision," we've seen NBA stars take more control over their playing destiny to sign with teams in free agency or demand trades to play in specific cities. Is player movement good or bad for basketball? Watch or listen to Boxed In every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on Yahoo Sports, YouTube or on your podcast provider of choice.

Spurs' Patty Mills donating $1 million to fight racism

The exact amount, Mills said, for the Spurs' eight remaining regular-season, or seeding, games will be $1,017,818.54. ''So, I'm playing in Orlando because I don't want to leave any money on the table that could be going directly to Black communities,'' Mills said.
