Interesting how LeBron was not seated alongside Cavaliers "legends." But a nice moment for Z, truly a gentleman and a special person.
Congratulations to Big Z Zydrunas Ilgauskas on his jersey retirement.
It's ours for the taking so watch us take it.
For any concern about LeBron being in Cleveland, it's not as if he was going to have cocoa and have head on pillow at 10 p.m. in Chicago.
LeBron expects Ilgauskas to get emotional: "He will for sure.... Allen Iverson is 1 of toughest guys we've ever seen & he was emotional..."
LeBron got a gift for Ilgauskas but wanted to keep it between them. Not sure if he will stay for game. It's Cavs-Knicks, so better off not.
LeBron watched whole Bulls-Grizzlies game last night. On Miller: "I've seen that shot multiple times, & still as pretty as can be."
Bosh on all the talk about LeBron and sleeves: "I don't want much TV, for those reasons like that."
Bosh on Pacers: "Yeah, we did miss out on an opportunity. But they lost last night, so we're still right there."
LeBron on his shooting: "I didn't feel fatigued at all in Spurs game. I just missed shots."

Wade’s sister getting married today in Chicago.
Spoelstra on concern about making it back, with early start tomorrow & clocks going forward: "It's not like they r flying commercial."
Spoelstra still OK w contingent going to Clev, even with tight turnaround: "You can't be so cynical that u don't recognize special moments."
Spoelstra: "We have the No. 1 offense in the league. You can't go on the road and bank on that."
Spoelstra on Pacers: "We're more concerned with how we've played the past couple games. Not with anything they're doing."
Spoelstra held a long film session today with team. "We're not happy about the way we've played on the road the past 2 games."
DeAndre Liggins has signed his second 10-day contract with the Heat. Mario Chalmers tells me Liggins should be in the dunk contest.
Man, this Kasey Hill is a heckuva point guard. Hope he sticks around a cpl more years.
Houston reminds me of 2004-05 Heat. Elite center & SG, 1st year together. Decent role players. Got hot, got within game of Finals.
Miami and Indiana again tied in loss column. Pacers have 3 more wins. Heat play at Chicago on Sun, Pacers in Dallas.
The West first round will feature 2 of the best first round series we've seen, with HOU/LAC/POR/GS, in some combination.
The phony rhetoric doesn’t fool anybody. Heat players kicking themselves right now they’re not in first after tonight.
Evan Turner vs. James Harden pillow fight!
It’s official. Pat Beverley has driven George Hill completely insane.
Anyone else catch West give one of his cheap elbows to Beverley at timeout?
David West with the walk-by shoulder bump on Pat Beverley going into timeout. Ultimate sign of respect.
Thunder, Spurs, Clippers Rockets . . . the Western Conference playoffs will be pure carnage.
Dwight Howard is manhandling Rpy Hibbert on both ends. I think we made a myth.
Pat Beverley in a mask is enjoyable television.
Wouldn't be surprised if some Heat players kidnap Mike Miller & don't allow him to leave Chicago with the Grizzlies.
James Harden needs to wear that hat every day. It matches the beard perfectly.
Mike Miller letting it fly on Madison...
Memphis and Chicago are sending basketball back to a time when crotchety anchors could appreciate it.
It's come to this Lakers fans - even the LA Kiss are talking smack about you. http://t.co/WKT6Ls9kMd
ABC bumps Knicks-Bulls from national TV on April 13 in favor of Pacers-Thunder. Thank you.
WADE on Beasley: "We’re going to need him. and we hope that he continues to get the concepts of what we’re trying to do."
WADE on Beasley: "It’s up and down for him. Of late, he has been playing very well for us as he’s trying to get back into his rhythm."
The Southwest boarding process has become more complicated than the NBA CBA. I need a trade exception to move to a new group.
CHRIS BOSH on the Pacers: "We’ve blown two great opportunities. We should be half a game back behind…what’s it called…the other team."
Mentioned this last night, but worth mentioning again: LeBron James is 1-for-19 on jumpers since Monday's 61-point game.
Pace-adjusted defensive rating over last 10: Pelicans 113.5, Lakers 111.6. Behold, the power of pace!
The Pelicans have allowed 105.6 points per game over their last 10. The Lakers: 116.9 points. Which has been worse on D?
My flight connection this morning in ATL is tighter than a sleeve jersey
People acting shocked that LeBron checks his messages at halftime. I assume half of these tweets were written while driving on 95.
Dwyane Wade: "Let's not make it about the jerseys. We got our butts kicked."
LEBRON on LeMask: “I had a message from my wife at halftime to put it back on, so I may be in trouble when I get home."
Wonder how many LeBron sleeved jerseys now will be sold. LeBron, "Not a big fan of the jerseys."
Heat will not have to wear sleeves balance of season.
Spoelstra said LeBron was not medically cleared to discard mask, that it was James' decision and Heat wasn't about to throw it back on him.
Friday and Saturday will represent the Heat's final multi-day break of the regular season. Games every night or every other night thereafter
LeBron wants to find out how many times he needs to wear sleeves. Cites 0 for 7 in ASG, struggle on J at XMas, struggle tonight.
LeBron says every time he shoots, he feels like jersey is pulling. "I don't have a lot of room for error on my jumper."
LeBron says his wife told him at halftime to put mask back on. Says now it will be game to game.
Spoelstra on LeBron and mask: "It was his decision to throw it off. We didn't throw it back at him."
Miami loses to Spurs, 113-87. San Antonio again nationally ignored, again legit. LeBron has made one shot outside paint in 2 games.
Stay weird, Heat-Spurs regular season games.
Make that 1-for-19. 1-for-11 today. 0-for-8 on Tuesday.
By my count, LeBron is 1-for-20 on jumpers since Monday's 61.
Beasley needs to play now. See if he catches fire. Take PGs off the floor. Nothing else is working.
Can't wait 'til someone asks LeBron about the sleeves.
Scott Foster doing the Scott Foster thing. Foster might just have pulled a Boeheim, ending this one.
Reminder that Miami is in Chicago on Sunday. Bulls are hot, and Heat don't tend to play well there. Could be 0-3 trip.
It's been another rough, rough one for Norris Cole.
This is the Patty Mills we remember from college.
That was 26 words of Gregg Popovich with Craig Sager.
Spurs 82, Heat 74 at end of third. Were down 17 early, were within five in third.
After making his first eight 3s against Charlotte on Monday, LeBron has missed 8 straight 3s since.
Michael Beasley doing things . . . on defense.
Popovich joking before the game on starting Diaw: "We’re just tricking the hell out of them. They’ll never know what hit them."
You can see LeBron pulling back from some plays, on both ends, he normally attacks. A few more minutes and he'll be back in attack mode.
This is really a big step for Beasley tonight. Spoelstra trusting him against this team, even w/ full roster.
That might have been the greatest defensive play of Michael Beasley's career. Good technique. Stood ground vs. Duncan.
