MIAMI - The Miami Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs 103-100 in overtime in game six to tie things up at three victories each pushing the NBA finals to a game seven.
After the game James was asked by Sports Balls Illustrated Daily's Rufus Reno what he owed the victory to.
LeBron smiled, took a sip of his Mango Gatorade and said that he gives all the credit to Kobe Bryant.
A puzzled Reno remarked, "But Bryant is your arch enemy - you two hate each other more than Piers Morgan hates Omarosa, more than Madonna hates Elton John, and even more than Mitt Romney hates fellow Republican and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie."
James replied that he was right, but he added that he took on "Vino" Bryant's persona of being a player-coach and an on-court cheerleader just like little Kobe does and it worked like a charm.
He then confessed that at halftime he even jumped all over his teammates including Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade and told them if they did not play better after the game he was going to corner them in the locker room and shove, hit, and kick each one for about six minutes.
