MIAMI -- When LeBron James arrived in Miami before last season, Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo had a presentation of show and tell.
McAdoo is one of the few guys on the planet who at least has somewhat walked in similar shoes as James. Likes James, he has won an NBA MVP and a scoring title (actually, three). Like James, he had toiled for many years without winning a title. And, like James, he joined forces with superstars on another team in pursuit of that ring.
"When he first got here, I kind of showed him our Lakers pictures and I said, 'I understand what you did,'" McAdoo, who joined the Lakers in 1981-82 and won a championship that season as well as one in 1984-85, said in an interview Monday with FOX Sports Florida. "I had to get with a team of other stars and people didn't make a big deal out of it."

Me: Hi LeBron’s Headband, thanks for coming.
LBJH: Thanks for having me, Matt.
Me: So how have these playoffs gone for you so far?
LBJH: It’s been hard, honestly.
Me: Why is that?
LBJH: Well if LeBron were a bench player, everything would be fine, but since he’s active in the offense, I find myself always hanging on for dear life.
Me: Do you ever talk to him about...

The Miami Heat haven't been this near a title since exactly six years ago Wednesday, when they defeated Dallas in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to wrap up the 2006 crown.
Put them both together, and Thursday...
Halfway to a title, and LeBron James shows no sign of letting this one get away.

MIAMI Forget for a moment the painful grimace on the face of LeBron James. When he was carried off the court late Tuesday by teammate Juwan Howard and trainer Jay Sabol, isn't that how an enduring moment from a defining career turn, rich with symbolism, is supposed to look?
It appeared that way Wednesday, the day after, when the buildup to Game 5 revolved less around the minutiae...
Just goes to show, Lebron has awful taste. [Follow me @TravisHouser]

With the game once again knotted up late in the fourth quarter, Oklahoma City choked.
Despite the league’s best player—the only guy who has shown the ability to slow down Kevin Durant, by the way—checking in and out of play with a leg cramp, the Thunder failed to execute on both ends of the floor, falling into a 3-1 hole in the NBA Finals with a third consecutive loss.
