Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE/Getty ImagesDavid West and the Pacers didn’t believe LeBron was hurt The Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat went at it again for the second time in eight days Wednesday night. The Heat overcame a 15-point deficit to take the win for a final of 97-94. Chris Bosh and Ray Allen hit two huge three pointers down the stretch of a game that the Pacers controlled throughout. This led to David West voicing his opinion on not only the loss, but also the injury LeBron James has been coping with. Via ESPN: “They stole the game from us,” West said. Via Sun Sentinel: The Pacers weren’t buying James being physical off. “You guys buy into the hype of him being hurt and all that other stuff,” Indiana power forward David West said. “We don’t believe that.” Judging by James stat line you wouldn’t have known he was injured. LeBron said he was about a 7 on a scale 1-10 with the recovery process. These two teams don’t play again until March when the Eastern Conference number one seed may be on the line. These two teams may be the best new rivalry in the NBA and fans won’t want to miss the last two games coming down the stretch of the season.

LeBron James tweeted Kobe Bryant some words of encouragement
LeBron James reached out to Kobe Bryant on Twitter following the bad news that the Black Mamba will be out at least six weeks with a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau in his left knee. James, who is enjoying yet another MVP type season for the Miami Heat, showed a lot of respect acknowledging Bryant and tweeting...
During tonight’s Heat at Pacers game, LeBron James got into it with teammate Mario Chalmers on the sidelines during a timeout. I’m not quite sure what transpired to cause this, but needless to say they weren’t seeing eye to eye. […]
Agree with this statement.
“You guys buy into the hype of him being hurt and all that other stuff,” Indiana power forward David West said. “We don’t believe that.”
I disagree with this statement.
“They stole the game from us,” West said.
I think LeBron was being a little dramatic about his ankle injury, but you don’t steal games in the NBA. The Pacers simply blew...
For those of you unable to watch tonight’s Heat/Pacers affair, you probably want to continue onwards to see this absolutely filthy slam dunk by LeBron James.
It happened with less than a minute in the third period as James was matched-up with Luis Scola.
Watch as LBJ blows by Luis for the easy slam dunk and gets the and-1 foul call:

Let me start this post with a fond rememberance of Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore since he’s probably in the near future going to be as the guy who decided to stand in front of LeBron James when he threw down a nasty jam. The play happened in the first quarter of the Heat’s game with the Kings and watch as LeBron as he rises over Ben McLemore for the incredible one-handed...
Miami Heat superstar LeBron James got up from his chair and got in the face of teammate Mario Chalmers while huddled on the bench during a second half timeout in Wednesday night's game against Indiana.The spat appeared to be over a defensive miscommunication after Paul George hit a wide open 3-pointer. NBA play-by-play announcer Mike Breen mentioned that LeBron and Chalmers...
At least Ben McLemore can cherish the time he spent with LeBron James by hanging this dunk poster on his wall.
This one is the early season leader for "Dunk of the Year". Poor Ben McLemore will soon learn...when LeBron James is charging towards you, just get out of the way. Posterized. My goodness.
Mario Chalmers is the little brother on the Miami Heat that gets blamed for everything. Wednesday night, Chalmers must have really pissed LeBron James off, because he almost slapped Mario.
In the 3rd quarter of a tense and important matchup with the red hot Indiana Pacers, Paul George somehow got open for an uncontested three.
George was LeBron’s man, and during the ensuing timeout...
No matter what the Miami Heat was saying in advance of Wednesday night’s match up against the Indiana Pacers, that it was just another game, we know it meant a bit more than that. Naturally, tempers were a little flared during the game. During a timeout, LeBron James got in the face of teammate Mario Chalmers and had to be pulled away.
LeBron later apologized to Rio and apologized...
Professional sports is always going to need new, young talent in order to remain a fresh and exciting product that fans are willing to pay top dollar to see live. The NBA is certainly not immune to that need, but luckily gets an influx of talent--like Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore.@mrcolegs/TwitterHowever, as rookies they will inevitably pay the price for the folly of youth...

LeBron James is not one of my favorite guys. I don't really care for the rest of the Miami Heat either, but there can be no denying one thing--when this man wants to fly he can sure as hell fly.As Sidney Dean would say: It's pretty. It's so pretty!Gifdsports.comCall it a hunch, but I doubt that LeBron and Kadeem Hardison are going to Sizzler. Loading...
Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant received plenty of support from those on Twitter, following the announcement he would miss six weeks with a knee injury. One of those tweeters offering support was none other than LeBron James.
