LeBron James Turns to Boxing to Help Prepare for Spurs (Photos)
It seems like LeBron James is going to use every resource available to him to make sure he isn’t on the receiving end of another Gregg Popovich-Tim Duncan, butt whooping in the NBA Finals.
Photos of the Miami Heat forward working on his agility and endurance in a gym, were posted on his personal website before his team squares off against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 tonight.
James says that he still harbors ill-will towards to Spurs after they eliminated his 2007 Cleveland Cavaliers team in somewhat easy fashion.
“I have something in me that they took in ’07; beat us on our home floor, celebrated on our home floor,” James said during his NBA Finals press conference. “I won’t forget that. You shouldn’t as a competitor. You should never forget that.
“It’s the same group of guys, for the most part. The same Big Three, and Coach [Gregg] Pop[ovich]. And I look forward to the challenge once again.”
This is going to be good.
