Nc biscuit,

Averaging 33 and 11 and 5 in the conference finals isnt stepping up? What player in NBA history scored and was expected to score 40 every night in the playoffs? Jordan shot 73% every nite in the playoffs? D Wade had 17, no one else was in double figures. Dont they get paid too? Tell me nc biscuit what his #'s should look like this series?

I didn't say his #'s hadn't been excellent... he said so himself in the press conference that he was really aggressive last night... I've always thought LeBron always deferred too much to his teammates, passing too much etc. Last night he was just a beast and completely took over the game... he should do that every night.

That Rick Reiley piece is a good read. It just seems people actually hate Lebron. I really don't get the criticism on him this year. He has carried that Heat team so far in these playoffs. I know I keep saying this, but the guy people really need to go after is Wade. He's been off more than on in these playoffs. His jumpshot hasn't been consistent and his D has been weak. Plus he's been acting like a jackass.

Wade isnt a runaway slave though. You cant expect the same reaction LeBron got. Disobeying a rich white man is worse than crime or poor play. The grudge wont end and they will continue to cheer against him.

King sure does love this LeBron guy lol. When the Heat & Bobcats play what do you want to happen?

Excited to see what he does tomorrow in game 7. Would love to see Durant take LBJ out in the finals. That would also mark the 5th straight year the Lakers either won the championship or lost to the team who did.

Rick Reilly can suck my dick. LeBron is an arrogant jackass at times. You can't have it both ways. If you want to be crowned a king don't cry when people bash you for losing.

Going into the 2012 Finals,, LeBron for the playoffs is averaging....

30.8 PPG (50.8 FG%), 9.6 RPG, and 5.1 APG

Not only is he the leagues leading scorer this playoff, but hes scored more 4th quarter points than anybody. That stat line is the epitome of choking. LOL

It is just perception. As a Cav he closed out many games until he had that terrible one against the Celtics: The Delonte West is in my mom game.

He does lose confidence at end of game situations and passes up opportunities he would never in a regular season game.

I am a huge fan and hope that game 6 in the Eastern conference finals put him over the top!

LeBron focuses by reading

Today's Miami Heat Book Club update: Forward LeBron James is finished with The Hunger Games trilogy (Mockingjay was the last installment) and has moved on to Jay-Z's book, Decoded.

James began devouring books at the beginning of the playoffs, starting with Hall of Famer Jerry West's autobiography West by West: My Charmed, Tormented Life.

Since then, he has read The Pact: Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a Dream; The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference; The Hunger Games;Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

"For me, it's relaxing honestly," James said early Tuesday afternoon, hours before Game 1 of the NBA Finals. "You spend so much preparation for the games, sometimes you just need to get away from it for a little bit. The reading has helped me get away from the game a little bit, and I'm able zero in once I'm done and get ready for the games."

The increased reading has coincided with James' vacation from Twitter and decreased TV viewing.

"I wanted to try something new in this postseason honestly. I'm not watching much TV so I'm reading a little bit more," he said.

James said he asked longtime friend and business manager Maverick Carter to select books for him. Since then, "People have seen me walking around with them (and) they've been given lists of books to read."

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, a self-confessed hoops junkie, has taken a similar route – he said he's watching TV less and has stopped reading Heat-related stories. He told USA TODAY Sports Tuesday he encouraged his players to find a diversion from what he calls "outside noise."

It wasn't easy for Spoelstra, who regularly visits NBA-related websites and receives a collection of clips daily from the Heat's public relations staff. While watching playoff games, Spoelstra had the volume muted to avoid hearing what is being said about his team.

Smart move by LeBron James.

Ignoring the hype and criticism.

Making good use of his free time by decompressing and expanding his knowledge.
