LeBron James was desperate for some time away from basketball, so he packed up his family for a vacation this summer. Sun and sand. Rest and relaxation.
Pen and paper, too.
It didn't take long until the NBA's MVP took a break from taking a break.
Considered the best player in the game, James remains obsessed with getting better. That's why, on the verge of starting his 11th professional season and fourth with the Miami Heat, James fully expects the 2013-14 campaign to be his best one yet. He knows there's no shortage of challengers aiming to knock both him and his team off their respective mountaintops.
''I'm nitpicking now, obviously, at my own game,'' James said in an interview with The Associated Press. ''I want that. I want to be uncomfortable. I want to continue to push the envelope and get to a point where I feel like I'm trying to master everything. Now, I can't be the greatest at everything. There's better rebounder...

This video is pretty funny if you ask me, and I can’t stop laughing. The Heat superstar and his wife decided to pull a Halloween prank on her father who was just minding his business watching some television on the couch.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the favorites in just about every category this season.
GMs around the NBA picked the Heat to three-peat (75.9%) and LeBron to win MVP (69%), while also voting him for a bunch of other superlatives, including player you'd build your team around (89.7%).
But when it came down to the player you want taking the last shot, they took Kevin Durant...
Since we near All Hallow’s Eve, LeBron James wife Savannah decided to play the role of “scary figure” and caused one individual close to LeBron James to get freaked out.

One of the benefits of sitting courtside at an NBA game is the chance to talk with the players and experience the full range of emotions while sitting so close.
Last night, one little kid at the New Orleans Pelicans/Miami Heat game got the chance to play a quick game of catch with LeBron James and that can be seen below:

The Big Leagues NBA.com’s annual GM survey tells us what we suspected all along.
In the 60′s, it was Wilt Chamberlain vs. Bill Russell. In the 80′s, it was Larry Bird against Magic Johnson.
Right in the 2010′s, it appears to be LeBron James vs. the rest of the NBA according to a Miami Herald interview with LeBron himself.
Check out the below quote where he notes that he did have a rivalry with Paul Pierce but says that it has changed since:
Love them or hate them, the Miami Heat are good for business in basketball betting circles and they open the 2013-2014 season as solid favorites to repeat as NBA champions.
Make that, three-peat as champions.
LeBron James et al are +250 on the NBA futures menu at shops such as Topbet.eu.
Oklahoma City is a fairly distant second betting choice at +650 with the San Antonio Spurs well...
LeBron James' dunk on Jason Terry was breathtaking, one of the coolest basketball plays you'll ever see.
Well, now that ridiculous dunk can live with you. Upper Deck has created a poster of the slam with five chronological pictures and it is awesome. It's even autographed by LeBron.
The catch is that the poster is $899. But man, it would be sweet...
