Unfortunately the NBA season has to come to an end. It ended with the Miami Heat securing another championship banner and LeBron James putting forth a historically ascendant effort. James averaged 25.9 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game in the 2013 NBA playoffs, amassing a colossal efficiency rating of 29.17. The end of the finals instantly sparked the tireless discussion of where James stacks up against the Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Magic Johnson and the other greats, and also builds on the notion that in order to win in the NBA you need stars (plural). But before the NBA Draft directs our attention towards 2013-2014, we should examine what we learned from another epic NBA playoffs. 1.)

The series offered powerhouse names – James, Dwyane Wade, Tony Park...
BEST OF MAXIM
LeBron James has made a conscious effort to limit distractions during the playoffs over the past two seasons, and the results have spoken for themselves. During the Miami Heat’s championship runs in 2012 and 2013, LeBron turned his cell phone over to his agent and stopped listening to what Twitter followers and sports analysts had [...]
He is the reigning NBA MVP and now a two-time champion.

Check out “The LeBron Cam” as it shows LeBron James, Juwan Howard, and a host of others showing off their ducking skills:
We can all agree that the Harlem Shake is dead and buried, but With their NBA Finals victory, the Miami Heat’s version is getting a little more run. At the championship celebration (you can see our coverage of the event right here) several players made mention of it, with Shane Battier’s “Horsetronaut” making an appearance and LeBron James dancing on stage to end the celebration...
Only hours after celebrating his own championship, LeBron James congratulated a fellow champion, Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane. The Miami Heat superstar saluted Kane and his favorite hockey team by Tweeting out a photo of a customized Blackhawks jersey with his name and number “6″ on the back. I guess the customized jersey wasn’t made in the final minutes of Game...
Do you think he flops with groceries?
LeBron James has made it clear that he will not contemplate free agency of 2014 now, but the Miami Heat forward was adamant maintaining the team's current big three -- along with Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra -- is critical.
“That’s the goal," James said on Tuesday. "That’s the ultimate finish. We all hope that can happen, obviously, to be able to have success...
