The trust James has in his teammates — from Dwyane Wade to Bosh to Rashard Lewis — can be amazing.

In the last four seasons, the Heat have won all three series they have been the road team. In addition to the Pacers and Thunder, they defeated the Chicago Bulls in the 2011 conference finals. "To win a championship, you have to win on road," forward Rashard Lewis said. "We're not going to say we're comfortable [on the road]. If we can get one, we feel like we've done our job. ... It [homecourt] can be overrated. Getting homecourt, I feel like it is a little added pressure because you have to win. You have to win at home." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Lewis said he will discuss his playing future with his agent during the summer. The plan is to play at least "two or three" more years long as it's in the right situation. He said he wants to remain playing for a contending team. "I'm not going to just continue to play if I'm playing for a team that's rebuilding with young guys that's not even a playoff-contending team," Lewis said. "My whole goal is to continue to play for a team that's going to compete. I feel like I do have more years left in me." Sun Herald
