Down by seven points with less than 2 minutes left, LeBron James’ current team was in big trouble against his former team.
For the first time, LeBron James will be facing his former team as an NBA champion.
It was just two years ago when Miami Heat superstar LeBron James walked off the court in Boston and removed his Cleveland Cavaliers jersey for the final time after suffering an ugly series ending loss at the hands of the Celtics. So a game that is for all the marbles for the Miami Heat is not without a large degree of irony.
Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers was named the 2012 Rookie of the Year, beating out another point guard Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The ascent has been rapid for the 19-year-old former New Jersey high school player from St. Patrick’s who last year, due to an injury, played just 11 games as a freshman at Duke.
LeBron James scored 28 in his third game back to Cleveland as a visitor, Dwyane Wade added 22 and the Miami Heat won their fifth straight — all on the road — by destroying the Cavaliers 111-87 on Friday night.
It seems as if every time LeBron James speaks someone gets upset. Thursday, LeBron’s words had some in Miami trembling.
Miami Heat superstar forward LeBron James told the media Thursday that he could possibly play for the Cleveland Cavaliers again before his career is over.
Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, LeBron James added 24 against his former team and the Miami Heat tuned up for a long road trip by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-91 on Tuesday night.
Chris Bosh scored 17 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter, LeBron James added 18 and the Miami Heat survived another shaky offensive night to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 92-85 on Tuesday night.
Last Thursday, as the NBA negotiations seemed to be making progress, owners submarined any possible deal. Now, the owners are preparing to hit the players, and fans, again.
