For LeBron James, something changes at this time of year.
He wakes up at all hours, jolted by the recurring dream of what that championship moment may feel like. It's all-consuming, something that's difficult at times for his family and those around him to deal with.
He calls it playoff mode. And here it comes.
Still driven by last season's loss to Dallas in the NBA...
We all know that Miami Heat star Lebron James is a maestro on the basketball court but did you know that he is a tea-drinker?Check out this introduction of a James profile done by Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated and his description of how Lebron makes his tea:LeBron James sinks into a restaurant booth on the first floor of the Westin in Jersey City, N.J., and orders a chamomile...

The NBA Playoffs have arrived and just as last year, the Miami Heat are at the forefront. They may not have the #1 seed going into the playoffs, but everyone expects this team to take the title.
Ever since Miami acquired LeBron James, the heat has...

This cover story appears in the April 30, 2012 issue of Sports Illustrated. Senior writer Lee Jenkins discusses his cover story on LeBron James. ”I lost touch with who I was as a basketball player and a person,” James says. “I got caught up in everything that was going on around me, and I felt like I had to prove something to people, and I don’t...
Jim RacaltoI feel almost honored to put this comparison in writing. One of the most acclaimed legends of yesteryear, former Laker Earvin “Magic” Johnson revolutionized the position of point guard. Standing a gargantuan 6 foot 9 and weighing in at 255 pounds, Magic was the true first point forward. He possessed the ball-handling skills, court vision [...]Sports-Kings - The Kings of Sports Lists

The last we heard from Steve Francis he was clamoring to join the Miami Heat. But since that didn’t work out, there was only one thing to do, start rapping.And he is as part of Mazerati music in a new video for his song “Finer Things”.Bottle poppin’, ice rockin’, and NSFW language to follow.

The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are taking no chances with some key starters as the playoffs approach.
The Heat were without LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh when they visited the Celtics on Tuesday in the second-to-last game of the regular season.
Bosh didn't dress again because of a left hamstring strain. James and Wade were still in warmups and didn't come...
With the NBA playoffs just a few days away, let’s discuss five big questions in the Eastern Conference.
5. Will Dwyane Wade’s dislocated finger hurt the Miami Heat?
A dislocated finger might not seem like a big deal, but it can be a nagging, frustrating injury. Wade dislocated his finger this past weekend and I think it could hamper his performance some. The good thing is that...
BOSTON On Tuesday, very quietly, a great rivalry may come to an end.
The versions of the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat that play one another Tuesday night are likely to be watered down by injuries and coaches looking to give their stars a rest. Chris Bosh has not played in a week, Dwyane Wade has aged before our eyes and probably needs rest, and even LeBron James has eaten enough...

For both the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, resting stars appears to be the priority over any possible improvement in postseason positioning.
The Celtics, though, could have a bit more help Tuesday night as they try for a third win this month over the Heat, who may be without LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
Miami only has a slim chance of catching Chicago for the top...
