LeBron James: "No one feels sorry" for the Cleveland Cavaliers -- losers of three straight — WASHINGTON, DC - LeBron James said the Cleveland Cavaliers lacked energy and played with poor body language Friday night.

LeBron James calls Paul Pierce "one of the best guys I've ever competed against" — WASHINGTON, DC -- There has been much talk about LeBron James and rivalries this week. The Spurs aren't his rival.

LeBron James suffers 4-point second half in loss to San Antonio Spurs: Joe Vardon's instant analysis — CLEVELAND, Ohio -- This is one LeBron James would probably like to forget.

LeBron James says the San Antonio Spurs are the "Patriots of the NBA," but not his rival — INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - LeBron James faced the San Antonio Spurs three times in the Finals in his first 11 pro seasons, losing twice.
