Found June 18, 2012 on The Other Paper:
While leaving the court after last night's Game 3 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Miami Heat star, LeBron James, made one young lady's night more memorable by giving her his sweaty headband.

After the 91-85 win, James handed the white terry-cloth head gear to the swooning young woman who clutched the souvenir to her chest before putting it around her head.

James wasn't so giving to the Thunder.  He finished the game with 29 points and 14 rebounds to give his team a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals.

The Pursuit of Perfection: Analyzing the Psyche of LeBron James

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 [...]

An Interview with LeBron James’ Headband

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...

Heat appear poised for NBA title after Game 4

MIAMI -- LeBron James hasn't been this close to a championship since his Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary team beat Kettering Alter on March 22, 2003 for the Ohio Division II title. 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...

Heat build 2-1 lead in NBA Finals

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...

Embrace your villain, LeBron James

  Villain: a.) an uncouth person, b.) a deliberate scoundrel or criminal, c.) a character in a story or play who opposes the hero, d.)  one blamed for a particular evil or difficulty. A proper villain is as important to any storyline as the part the hero plays; the bad guy to the good guy; the demented [...]

James not first to join stars in search of title

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...

Why We Should Still Hate LeBron

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. For every...

Heat take 3-1 series lead despite Westbrook’s 43 points

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.

Surprised by the Thunder

After winning 4 in a row against a San Antonio Spurs team that hadn’t lost in a month and a half, the Oklahoma City Thunder looked like they were on a roll headed into the NBA Finals. They seemed pumped and ready to face a Miami Heat team that had just been beat up through a seven-game series with the Boston Celtics. They looked poised to jump out of the starting gate with two...
