Miami HEAT forward LeBron James has been named to the NBA’s 2012-13 All-Defensive First Team. This marks the fifth time in James’ career that he has earned NBA All-Defensive First Team honors, all in consecutive seasons.
The featured matchup for the NBA’s annual Christmas day lineup of games was a rematch of the 2012 NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat. By the time the final buzzer sounded, one thing was clear…the Thunder still couldn’t beat the Heat.
Miami Heat star forward LeBron James has been playing some of the best basketball of his career in the 2012 playoffs. So it might not be the best time to give him even more motivation, which may be what Oklahoma City Thunder center Serge Ibaka did.
