Despite having an ice pack hugging his right shoulder, LeBron James insists he'll be on the court for the Miami Heat's next game.
He's also insisting that the latest defeat for his team wasn't a step back.
James and the Heat will try to avenge what was possibly their most embarrassing defeat of the season when they host the league-worst Washington Wizards on Saturday...

Somehow, none of that mattered.
Dwyane Wade scored 24 points, LeBron James added 22 points and 11 assists and the Heat survived a strangely...

So several players did exactly that - and maybe it was no coincidence that the Heat came up with one of their most...
South African sprinter amputee Oscar Pistorius may be an unconventional choice for athlete of the year, but his accomplishments in sports this year, particularly at the Olympics, cannot be ignored for their bravery and unparalleled achievement.
Pistorius made Olympic history with his entry into the 400 meters and 4 x 400 meter relay races.

While LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat were running roughshod over the NBA two years ago, I was dismayed to find myself rooting for Kobe Bryant.
