MIAMI — LeBron James has never taken fewer shots in a playoff game than he did Sunday night, which at first glance might seem like a good thing for the Milwaukee Bucks. It was not. James scored 27 points on 9 of 11 shooting — finishing two assists shy of a triple-double — while Ray Allen scored…

The video took the two about 30 minutes to edit according to James. Once they saw the final version, Wade said he “knew this was going to be pretty funny.” For instance, Wade is dressed like a teddy bear from Saturday Night Fever.
“It’s a long season, man,” Wade said. “For us, it was just trying to enjoy the process. It’s going to be go time soon, and then we’re not going to be able to do anything, fun was the ultimate goal.”
“With everything that goes on with our team from the outside, we have to figure out a way to keep ourselves sane and have fun,” James said. “It’s no disrespect to anyone we go against or the game itself. We approach the game like the best competitors, but in the meantime you have to appreciate more than just basketball.”
A list of the players and their costumes in the video: James, the spastic king; Wade, Saturday Night Fever bear; Bosh, ’80s cowboy break-dancer; Battier, “horse-stronaut”; Udonis Haslem, heavyweight champion fireman; Ray Allen, phantom of the opera; Andersen, Sons of Anarchy foot soldier; James Jones, disturbed clown; Norris Cole, “N.C. Hammer”; Chalmers, Super Mario; Rashard Lewis, jabawaki mime; Miller, sombrero wearing Ray Mysterio Junior; Jarvis Varnado, luchador; Joel Anthony, Antigua flag mask with Santa Claus cap.

“I got a lot of my own misses, too. I was missing a lot of chippies, but I was just trying to be aggressive,” said Wade. “When your shots aren’t falling you have to find some way to affect the basketball game and give your team a chance to win.”
James shot 9 for 11, giving him 37 makes on his last 47 attempts, and sat out the fourth quarter.
“He’s off the planet right now,” Wade said of James. “He’s not even the best basketball player on the planet. He’s surpassed the planet. He’s somewhere else. He’s playing phenomenal.”
It was his fourth straight 30-point game, tying him with Wade as the only Heat player with such streaks in the franchise’s 25-year history. According to STATS LLC, it was only the 13th such game in the NBA since the start of the 2002-03 season.
“Just confident in my ability,” James said. “It was great to see, when you put in a lot of work and you implement it into a game situation. Just play your game. That’s what I’m doing right now. Just playing my game.”
Mario Chalmers finished with 18 points and Shane Battier scored 12 for Miami. Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were back in the game from injuries and didn’t do much for the team’s final score with 23 points combined.
“We lost to a good team over there but we’re not going to hang our heads,” Paul said. “You never want to make excuses but they shot the lights out of the ball. We never really made an impact defensively. LeBron, Mario, all those guys were on a rocking chair all night.”
The Washington Wizards posted just their second win of the NBA season, overcoming a triple-double by Miami’s LeBron James to stun the reigning champion Heat 105-101. Jordan Crawford scored 22 points and Kevin Seraphin scored 16 points with 10 rebounds as the Wizards notched their third straight victory…
LeBron James drops his agent Leon Rose and his agency CAA. This new move is making a lot of noise as CAA has the largest sports department with other stars like Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Steve Nash will be joining Kobe Bryant, Paul Gasoland the LA Lakers back court in a sign and trade between the Lakers and the Sun, bringing the 2 time MVP to Los Angeles for 3 years. According to ESPN, Nash will receive upwards of $25 million.
Nash, 38 years old, spent the past eight seasons with the Suns. The star athlete was a free agent, however, a sign-and-trade agreement was necessary for the Lakers to afford him.
The Suns will receive 2013 and 2015 first-round picks and 2013 and 2014 second-round picks from the Lakers, according to the Arizona Republic.
Duffy said the deal was finalized about 6 p.m., PDT. He said a main reason for Nash choosing the Lakers was to remain close to his children. “We’ve agreed that it’s time for both of us to move in new directions. I approached them and asked if they would be willing to do a sign and trade deal with L.A. because it is very important to me to stay near my children and family,” Nash said to ESPN.
There had been sign-and-trade talks with New York and a lucrative free agent offer from Toronto. Nash won the MVP Award in 2004-05 and 2005-06 with the Suns. He will become the third player in NBA history to play for at least three different franchises during his career and win multiple MVP Awards (12 players have won multiple NBA MVP Awards all-time).
