Yawn.

So maybe it's okay to like LeBron James again.

Between the third and fourth quarter of last night's Heat/Pistons game, a fan was chosen to attempt a half court shot in an effort to win $75,000.

Watch now as he goes with a hook shot, actually nails it and then gets mauled by the one person more excited than he is over the impressive feat: James!

After Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade dropped 26 points on 11-13 shooting last night in a 101-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks, teammate LeBron James was fired up.

So much so, he uncharacteristically called out one of Wade's loudest critics.

Bron and Bark

"It means Charles Barkley needs to shut up," James said in response to a question of what Wade's performance meant to the team and to the All-Star himself.

LeBron James enjoyed a ho-hum 2012, winning his first NBA title... his third MVP award... AND an Olympic Gold Medal.

No, it's safe to say the editors of the world's most famous sports magazine didn't exactly have a tough time coming up with the 2012 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year.

Sports Illustratred Sportsman of the Year

"He was the most dominant athlete this year," Paul Fichtenbaum, Editor of Time Inc.'s Sports Group, said of LeBron. "The intangibles [James] brought to the court were significant in leading his teams to victory. He was a selfless player, doing whatever it took to will the Heat and Team USA, making all of his teammates better."

James is the first NBA star to land SI's top honor since his teammate, Dwayne Wade, did so in 2006.

He joins past Sportsman of the Year selections such as Brett Favre, Michael Phelps, Derek Jeter and Drew Brees.

But did he deserve it? Should LeBron have won Sportsman of the Year?

LeBron James just won an NBA title with the Miami Heat.

Now he can add three-time ESPY winner to his resume.

The basketball superstar won individual trophies for male athlete of the year, best championship performance and best NBA player at the 20th annual gala/TV ratings extravaganza celebrating the year's best athletes and moments in sports.

James, who is in London for the Olympics, has plenty to smile about.

LeBron bested tennis great Novak Djokovic, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for top male athlete.

He also shared in the best team award with the Heat.

Baylor basketball star Brittney Griner won female athlete of the year, topping Maria Sharapova, skier Lindsay Vonn and soccer player Abby Wambach.

Following an embarrassing Decision and an abysmal 2011 NBA Finals performance, a humbled, ridiculously talented LeBron James captured his first professional championship last night, as the Miami Heat finished off the Oklahama City Thunder in five very impressive games.

The closeout was a blowout, with LeBron notching a triple double and Miami winning 121-106.

"I did it the right way; I didn't short-cut anything," James said, responding to critics who have argued he did take a short-cut by joining two fellow stars on the Heat. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done."

It would be difficult to argue that James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat didn't work hard for this title. They became the first team in league history to win it all after trailing in three separate series, easily dispatching a Finals opponent who looked unstoppable leading into the matchup.

Even Cleveland Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who positively went off on LeBron after his departure in 2010, had to send congratulations to the growing legend. Sort of.

"Great NBA season," Gilbert Tweeted last night. "Enjoyed playoffs. Congratulations to Miami & OKC for an exciting Finals. Back to work on next weeks promising Cavs draft."

LeBron James' purse (yes, purse) became the talk of the NBA yesterday.

At halftime of Sunday's Celtics/Knicks game, ABC relayed a shot of Miami Heat stars James and Dwyane Wade entering the Staples Center to do battle with the L.A. Lakers.

Wade was "the personification of sexual chocolate" according to one blogger, in a muscle shirt, while LeBron ... carried what appeared to be a stylish man purse / toiletry bag:

The reactions to this will, undoubtedly, be split into two camps:

  1. Ryan Seacrest, David Beckham, Kanye West and Tom Haverford from Parks and Recreation, who will declare it "dope" and scramble to find out the designer.
  2. Everyone else, who will be LOLing at the fact that LeBron not only lost to the Lakers 93-83 Sunday, but lost his dignity by a much greater score.

What do you think of LeBron's man-purse? Fab or fail?

Move over, Google+. Nike has announced a new range of digitally-enabled footwear, Nike+, that uses interactive mobile apps to track and measure movement.

The Nike+ Basketball shoes can now measure exactly how high, how hard and how quickly wearers play during each game ... like a video game, but real life!

Data from the shoe is transmitted to the user's phone, which can then be compared against other players and used to talk massive smack on social media.

Miami Heat star LeBron James, a pitchman for the product, explains the Nike+ system more in the ad below, released by Nike yesterday. Check it out:

Poor John Lucas III.

LeBron James' drunk over him was so insane in the first quarter of the Miami Heat's win over the Chicago Bulls Sunday that the defender became an instant trend in the Twitter-verse. He may end up on a poster someday, too ... though not in a good way.

In one of the most ridiculous alley-oops you will ever see - no small feat for the human highlight reel - Dwyane Wade threw a lob to LeBron, who literally JUMPED OVER LUCAS, throwing it down with relative ease no less.

Watch the gravity (and comprehension) defying clip below:
