0-time NBA champion LeBron James celebrated his 27th birthday on Friday night by dropping 34 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds in the Heats 103-101 win over the Timberwolves. LeBron hit Dwyane Wade on an inbounds pass for a layup to give the Heat the lead and win with 4.6 seconds left in the game. I'm not sure if we have mentioned this before, but in case we have not, LeBron is in his 9th season in the NBA and is RINGLESS. Most "experts" are pegging Wade to win LeBron his first ring this season, just like he bailed him out tonight by hitting the game-winning shot. Moving onto things more important to LeBron than basketball, he will ring in the new year and celebrate his birthday Saturday with D-Wade and Bosh Spice at Vesper American Brasserie in South Beach, then jump to the Shelborne's pool area for a performance by Lauren Hill. They are due on the court the next night at 6pm to face the Boston Celtics.
