Reporting from Dallas The story goes that Shaquille O'Neal took Dwyane Wade for a car ride during the 2006 NBA Finals and taught him a few important lessons. An intervention it was not. More like an invitation to better himself on the court. Wade struggled through the first two games of the Finals that year against the Dallas Mavericks, so O'Neal made a point of stopping by his house to pick him up, drive him around town a bit and calm his nerves. Another veteran, Alonzo Mourning, was also reportedly there.

LeBron James sprawled his body on the Staples Center court, endangering a physique that no Lloyd's of London policy could adequately protect. He was a twisting mass of sinewy muscle, reaching low to grab the ball away from Kobe Bryant on a long rebound. The Miami Heat star dove to the floor in that fourth-quarter moment Thursday and spun toward the Lakers' three-point line. Rising quickly, James absorbed contact from a quickly closing Bryant and started a fast break that ended with the best player on this planet or any other finding Ray Allen for an open three-pointer that gave Miami the lead.

Reporting from Dallas Good Mario apparently has chosen to stay around for a while. Uneven through the first three rounds of the playoffs, Miami Heat backup point guard Mario Chalmers has now strung together three productive efforts in these NBA Finals, allowing the Heat to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series against the Dallas Mavericks. "But it's about consistency," Miami Coach Erik Spoelstra cautioned Monday, as the Heat looked ahead to Tuesday's Game 4 at American Airlines Center.

Poor Jason Terry. A week after Detroit's Brandon Knight was mocked far and wide all over social media forĀ  getting laid out on a dunk by Clippers' center DeAndre Jordan, now it's Terry's turn. And for the Boston Celtics guard, it might be even worse because the guy who threw down the monster jam at his expense was the Miami Heat's LeBron James, a megastar whose name gets searched on a regular basis even when he doesn't produce a highlight of the year. In a sequence that started at the 5:27 mark of the second quarter, Terry stripped the ball from Miami's Dwyane Wade, who instantly stole the ball back.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat's dunk routine during warmups will continue. So said the high-flying All-Star forward, who has received much criticism for never entering the NBA's dunk contest during All-Star weekend. "I don't do it for anybody besides our team," James said Thursday. "We came up with something and said, 'Let's get warmed up even more.' Actually, [Mario Chalmers] was the one who really started it. He said, 'Let's get hype, let's get up.' We're happy that our fans love it. We're going to continue to do it. It's something that we enjoy.
