This pick came late in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night’s Heat/Bulls showdown in Miami. The heat won this game 83-72 on their home-court.
LeBron’s screen looks perfectly acceptable to me, but Bulls backup point guard, John Lucas looked less that thrilled. He approached LeBron after the play was whistled dead and had to be restrained by Chicago forward, CarlosBoozer.
I do understand Lucas’ pain. He’s already featured in a poster of LeBron leaping over him for a sensational dunk. This seems like insult to injury!
As we quickly approach the NBA playoffs, it’s about time to focus on what’s really important. Of course we’re talking about the Cheerleaders of the NBA Playoffs. And as much as people hate Lebron James & Co., there is no doubt that the Miami Heat Dancers are some of hottest cheerleaders in all of professional sports.
Drawing off the immense talent walking around South...
MIAMI-- Erik Spoesltra obviously has nothing against Miami fans. Not even the guy who shows up every game dressed as a banana.
The Heat coach loves the homecourt advantage his team has at AmericanAirlines Arena, where it is 26-4 this season. But Spoelstra would rather not be in Miami on Thursday night.
"We would probably prefer this one was on the road again and have that...

With the playoffs starting next week, Chris Bosh was held out for the third game in a row. Dwyane Wade, who has missed 14 games, was in the starting lineup.
"We want to make sure we are healthy going into the second season," coach Erik...
LeBron James wants some rest. He also wants to play.
For now, the desire to play seems to be stronger. And his MVP candidacy may be a beneficiary of that decision.
James scored 28 points before taking the fourth quarter off, Mike Miller added 13 points and the Miami Heat continued tuning up for the postseason by pulling away in the second half to beat the Toronto Raptors 96-72...
LeBron James led the way with 27 points and 11 rebounds as the host Miami Heat pulled to within a game and a half of Chicago for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with an 83-72 victory over the Bulls.
Dwyane Wade returned to the lineup and put up 18 points and five assists while Mario Chalmers scored 16 points for the Heat, who were without Chris Bosh.

The NBA MVP debate has heated up, then cooled down. Then it heated up again, and then it cooled down, again. It seems that the MVP has come down to two players: Miami Heat forward LeBron James and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant.
Durant also has an argument for the award. He is averaging 27.8 ppg and 8 rpg. While he doesn’t boast the same assists per game like LeBron...

Jumping right into the news today.
Lebron James says winning a third MVP would "mean a lot." It would also mean nothing. As a matter of fact, it would almost be detrimental to his legacy at this point if he won but didn't get a title. It would be more detrimental to the shine of his present-day legacy to get that third MVP. He needs a title...
