Where there once was doubt with Erik Spoelstra regarding whether the Heat coach would be back next season, there now seemingly is certainty. Beyond Sunday's 91-85 victory over the Thunder at AmericanAirlines Arena, which lifted Miami to a 2-1 lead in these best-of-seven Finals, there has been a groundswell of Spoelstra being the right man for the job. "I think Spo has been great," forward LeBron James said. "I mean, he's been challenged the last two years by a lot of people, but I think he's been awesome. Two straight Finals appearances, and he's put us in position to win each and every game. "And for me, our relationship has grown over the last three years because we've been around each other, we understand what we like, our dislikes, everything of that nature, but he's been great.

At one point during the second half of Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, Dwyane Wade got caught in a switch and ended up covering Kevin Durant. Wade is extremely athletic, but this is a combination that the Heat want to avoid as much as possible in this series. K.D. has too much height and length for D-Wade to handle, and according to Wade that is exactly what Durant told...
This is not a typical Lebron James article about his stats, awards or endorsements. This article is about the psyche of Lebron James and how he can use failure as a motivation tool. One of the most difficult things in life for a human being to deal with is failure, but what can be even more devastating is if [...]
In another sad notch in the belt of domestic family affairs, the ex-wife of Dwyane Wade cut the fool in Dolton, IL over the weekend by delaying the departure of the former couples children on their trip back to their permanent home of Miami, FL.
Siohvaughn Funches-Wade lost custody of the two boys in March 2011 to Dwyane after a contentious legal battle.
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...
Halfway to a title, and LeBron James shows no sign of letting this one get away.
James had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Miami Heat took a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals with a 91-85 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.
Dwyane Wade had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who were in this same position through three games last year, then...
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...
Just goes to show, Lebron has awful taste. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James and the Miami Heat are one win away from an NBA championship.

The Heat now lead the best-of-seven series 3-1, and could...
It seems like everyone these days has jumped on the Heat Hate bandwagon. Even 6 year olds are being taught to dislike the dark side — The big question is, how’s this kid going to react if the Heat actually win it all. -TO

Caps correspondent (and Wiz fan!) Brad Parker checks in to assure you that rooting against LeBron James isn’t just okay, it’s encouraged.
We live in a world with incessant sports coverage. ESPN has at least five channels. D.C. has three sports radio stations. The Internet exists. In many ways that’s awesome. In others it nearly ruins the experience of being a fan.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are now only one win away from an NBA Championship.
Despite Russell Westbrook’s 43 points, the Heat went on to a 104-98 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder giving them a commanding 3-1 series lead, something no other NBA team has been able to overcome in NBA finals history.
LeBron James had 26 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds before being...
