Yogies, Stand UP! Yoga can make a difference! #letsgoheat #heatnation

Originally posted on CBS DC:

SAN ANTONIO — LeBron James knew he had to do more than just get his body right between Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals.

His mind needed a little work as well.

So that’s why, without anyone else with him — no security, no friends, nobody, and that almost never happens — James quietly showed up at a theater a couple miles from where the Miami Heat were staying for a 5:40 p.m. showing Saturday of “Maleficent.” And it’s also why he and his regular massage therapist joined two strangers for a yoga class at 8 a.m. Sunday, where he focused on his breathing.

“I needed to get everything right,” James said.

After a virtuoso, cramp-free performance, it looks like he succeeded.

The NBA Finals are headed back to Miami knotted at a game apiece, and James’ weekend of work away from the court paid big dividends on…

MIAMI (AP) — As anticipation builds for the NBA Finals rematch between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat lets take a look at how the two teams stack up against each other.

GAME 1 FACTS

The series starts in San Antonio on Thursday night and the Spurs have never lost Game 1 of an NBA Finals. And Miami star LeBron James has never been part of a Game 1 road victory, in any round.

Advantage, Spurs?

Maybe. Maybe not.

San Antonio — which has never played an NBA Finals game while facing a deficit in the series — has won each of its five Game 1’s in the title round, doing so by an average of 10.4 points per game.

Including his time in Cleveland, James has been on teams that opened playoff series on the road seven times. They’re 0-7, losing by an average of 12.3 points.

Originally posted on 910AM CBS Sports - Sports Radio - KRAK - High Desert - Lakers - Clippers - Angels - Chargers:

NEW YORK (AP) —  LeBron James understands it will take time, but he wants Donald Sterling out of the NBA.

And he said Sunday that NBA players believe nobody in Sterling’s family should be able to own the Los Angeles Clippers if he’s gone.

Sterling has been banned for life for making racist comments and Commissioner Adam Silver has urged owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise. But Silver said no decisions had been made about the rest of Sterling’s family.

Shelly Sterling, Sterling’s estranged wife, said she intends to keep her 50 percent of the franchise.

“As players, we want what’s right and we don’t feel like no one in his family should be able to own the team,” James said after the Miami Heat practiced for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Brooklyn.

But Shelly Sterling told ABC News’ Barbara Walters that she doesn’t believe…

Speaking to the media, James stated that Sterling’s comments were “unacceptable” if they were in fact true. James then implied that Sterling needs to leave the NBA:

Basketball is huge, obviously the playoffs have been unbelievable, and I hate the fact that something like this has to come out when the playoffs have been unbelievable and the game of basketball continues to grow, but there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league. There is no room for him.
