Have we seen the last of LeBron's pre-game dunk show?

The best in the unofficial series, LeBron put one between his legs in mid-flight before Tuesday's game. LeBron went on to score 40 points and record 16 assists against the Kings. The Heat defeated Sacramento 141-129 in double overtime.

LeBron's pregame dunk show, which also often includes other players like Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen, was once an intimate and almost secretive experience for fans who arrived early for games at AmericanAirlines Arena. That's no longer the case. ESPN has run wild with the story and the Heat has started streaming live video of its team's pregame warm-ups.

In other words, expect LeBron to shut the whole thing down. What was once organic fun now seems forced.

Well, game 6....

The way game 5 played out, kinda wanna say, play around they're offensive sets in the 1st half without or managing your fouls.... We can not put them on the line.... Solid/trapping defense....

WAIT...

Bron, breaking them down getting into the paint. The way a point guard does with a top side screen. These slight adjustments, create higher % shots... A lot of post attempts come in different elements.. This might have to be one of those games.... Gotta close them out....

D-Wade, close out... The paint all day... Attack.... In a zone...

CB, find your spots, take your shots, the cuts to the rim are there, take him off the bounce, get to the line... Stay out of foul trouble in the 1st half... Close out...

UD, be there... Stay aggressive... Battle... Close out...

Rio, attack they a$$.... This match up, I didn't notice he couldn't handle you before this series... All day... Hill should be on the bench... Off the screen... Jump out the way so you don't get called for the foul... He will try to get calls in this one... Manage your fouls... Close out...

Shane, solid defense.. Let it fly... Close out...

Cole, stay aggressive... Come to play... Close out...

Birdman, bring that energy... Stay aggressive... Close out...

Come to plays Guys... Don't let these Officials dictate if you win this game... Take control from the tip... Foul trouble can not keep this team scoring their way to wins... The traps look good... Make them make plays out of traps... Defense will win this one alone... But the offense should keep a lead... Don't wait... Close them out... Win game 6... 007...

We should have a good time with the Spurs... But right now, all focus should be on the Pacers....

WIN GAME 6...

The journey hasn't been EAZY... Almost there...

Now that they suspended Bird, have Joel set screens on offense and defend the paint on defense... Gotta attack the paint as a team....

Close them out in 6...

The three point line pick, set the screen as high as the three point line... open up a lane... take their biggs off the floor... every one was pushing for this... win anyway...

We win this game, back2back, oh, yeahhhhhh...

win game 6... leave it all out there... win game 6...

They are trying to give the Pacers a chance to pull off an upset...

Little do they know, this series is OVER....

DOMINATE THIS TEAM FOR 48 MINUTES....

The screen open the paint, now if you have a player moving from one side of the post-paint to the other, you now have a receiver to make a play... whether that is a dunk, or simple shot, or and-1... this can not be stopped...

The open jumper will be there as well... Baseline, three-ball, foul-line, cut to the rim...

don't let these officials control your tempo... Run.. ATTACK.. Motion...

Attack the paint... if they're standing there make the pass... or pull up in the paint for a floater or jumper...

GET TO THE LINE... the officials will not call a fair games... we have to be aggressive... can not wait.... keep you foot on their necks....

WIN GAME 6.....

Our defense has to be fast.. attacking... aggressive...

steals, blocks, taking charges, managing fouls, rebounds...

DO NOT PUT THEM ON THE LINE....

The Officials won game 4... We can not give them a chance to steal game 6...

Come to play.... Defense first... Stay aggressive... 48 minutes.... Close them out 2nite...

BLITZ THE PAINT!!!!!
