Durant took LBJ to school tonight. LBJ still seems very soft mentally... He's got to change that ASAP.
yeah i think thats just how the guy is........he has every physical tool you can have as far as basketball is concerned...its been those crunch time moments and the game in the balance in the playoff scenarios that he has just wilted under....

LeBron James will either be missing some time or playing through some pain.
ESPN.com reports that the Miami Heat All-Star forward and leading MVP candidate suffered a finger injury during a Monday night game against the Indiana Pacers that could be somewhat serious.
LeBron James injured the ring finger on his left hand during Miami's 105-90 loss at Indiana on Monday, according to league sources.
The severity of the injury is not known point, but sources indicated the finger might be dislocated. The Heat did not practice Tuesday and had no comment on James' injury.
On Wednesday, ESPN.com reported that James told reporters following practice that he dislocated his finger against the Pacers. "But I popped it back in," James said. The site also reported that James was wearing a "splint" in his finger.
Obviously, the injury is on James' non-shooting hand. James' injury occurred during the first quarter and that he played through the injury after the finger was wrapped with tape. James shook his hand and grimacing in pain after trying to swipe the ball away from Pacers center Roy Hibbert.
ames played 41 minutes on Monday night, finishing with 24 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 6 turnovers. He shot 9-for-21 from the field.
James had missed just one game so far this season, sitting out a January 5 game at the Atlanta Hawks because of a sprained left ankle. He has also complained of discomfort in his right elbow this week, according to FoxSportsFlorida.com.
During a 9-year NBA career, James has been one of the NBA's most durable superstars. He has played in 674 of a possible 704 regular season games, has missed more than three games in a season just twice and has never missed more than 7 games in a season.
James, 27, is averaging 26.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 2.0 steals in 37.7 minutes per game this season.
It won't be a disaster if James needs to sit for a bit. The Heat are currently the Eastern Conference's No. 2 seed with a record of 35-13. They're fairly well locked into that spot barring catastrophic injuries down the stretch, as they sit 3.5 games behind the No. 1 seed Chicago Bulls and 4 games in front of the No. 3 seed Orlando Magic with 18 games remaining on their schedule.

MIAMI (AP)—No fourth-quarter collapse this time against Dallas. These days, everything seems to be going right at home for the Miami Heat.
LeBron James and Chris Bosh each finished with 19 points and nine rebounds, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem scored 16 apiece and the Heat extended the league’s longest home winning streak this season to 15 games with a 106-85 win over the Mavericks in an NBA finals rematch on Thursday night.
Mario Chalmers scored 12 points and Norris Cole added 10 for Miami, which swept its two games with Dallas this season and snapped a two-game losing streak.
“We just worked our habits,” James said. “The best thing about tonight, we didn’t take another step backwards like we did the last two games. And it was good to see.”

Bad week for the Heat.
Blowout double digit losses to the Thunder, the Pacers and now the Celtics.
