LeBron James LeBron James

LeBron James has been the main story in these Finals, and for fans who have any questions as to what it was like for him to deal with the muscle cramps that sidelined him late or how the recovery process has been, Saturday afternoon is the chance to ask him yourself.

James will conduct a Facebook Live during practice media availability on Saturday, June 7 at 1:30 pm ET live from the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

Spurs players Boris Diaw and Patty Mills will participate in the live 30-minute show available to view on www.facebooklive.com and www.facebook.com/nba.  Fans will be able to submit questions via Facebook and Instagram.

Dwyane Wade and Manu Ginobili participated in the initial event in the practice session before Game 1, and additional ones will be held as the Finals continue.

Throughout the Finals, the league will be providing unique content via Twitter and Snapchat, and will have additional opportunities to interact with NBA legends and players by submitting questions on Reddit as part of the site’s “Ask Me Anything” platform.

The NBA reminds via the official release that it has built one the largest social media communities in the world, with more than 625 million fans and followers combined across all league, team, and player pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Sina, and Tencent.

    Media creates much of the LeBron hate by because fans sense when he’s being pushed on us.

    As the article clearly states but the headline omits, a handful of NBA stars are doing the Facebook live chat. But for the clickbait, you make it seem like only LeBron is doing the livechat. So all the LeBron haters congregate. Then you guys write articles trying to defend LeBron.

    It’s a vicious circle you guys create for LeBron.

      Someone gets it! Trolls fall right into the trap too!

        I thought that LeBron put his social media stuff on pause for the playoffs… Looks like he is losing his focus. At least according to HIS commercial.

    I don’t understand all the hate on this guy. I’m a Philadelphia fan so I could care less about him, but I don’t hate him. He has never been in trouble off the court, never hear any stories non basketball related about him, donates money and time to charities and is the best player in the league. I get it, it’s cool to cheer against the best player but the amount of crap he gets about nothing is nuts.

      Ok. So “hating on” doesn’t mean you hate someone. People use the term “hate” too loosely these days.

      One of the most rational comments posted on this site in a while.

      I don’t and I don’t think I ever will understand peoples hatred for LeBron, It truly is one of the most nonsensical things in sports.

      little history about me and my fandom for the Heat. I was born and raised here in South Florida, Coral Springs, FL to be exact I never growing up really cared about basketball, I was always more into football because that was my dads favorite sport to watch. I actually started to watch basketball the year the Heat had their worst record I’m pretty sure we only won 15 games that year, but I fell in love with the game, so much scoring and drama especially at the end of games so I couldn’t stop watching. I bought my first NBA jersey the next year when the Heat drafted Dwyane Wade funny to this day I still have my Learners Permit picture on my Drivers license and I’m wearing my D. Wade jersey. that year was my first and only in Public school (7th grade)(went to private before and after that) but I met two of my best friends in my life there Stephen and Oscar both from Philly (where my dad is from) Stephens favorite player was LeBron, Oscars was TMac and mine was of course D. Wade, we would argue and debate while playing bball for hours after school who was the better player (funny thought now right) but I would always say no matter what LeBron was going to be the best ever (IMO) shoot my mom still reminds me to this day how I told her to watch him play because hes the best and will become one of if not the GOAT himself. So I never built this animosity towards him. I have always just enjoyed watching his unselfish play. Wow so I’ve just rattled on here so I’ll get to my point (finally!!)

      LeBron is the most unselfish Superstar to play this game, his ability to score and impose his will on almost anyone in this league is incredible and he chooses to play a style that allows his teammates to score and get praise. I’ve never heard a single bad thing uttered about him from any player in the NBA he doesn’t play dirty, he doesn’t trash talk, hes practically a saint outside of basketball takes care of his children with his wife (not 50 Bimbos with 50 different kids) and on top of all that hes a good human being.

      It really just sad to me reading the hate and comments made in poor taste about a guy I respect, I get it its the Internet this is what happens when you give millions of Stupid people a voice (Thanks Twitter & Facebook) but sometimes you just wonder how crappy these peoples lives must be sitting on a computer trashing a guy they’ll never meet face to face. We have a-lot of Cowards on here especially.

      I highly doubt any one on here with their insults would ever stand in front of LeBron and say the same thing. Not just because he might kick your teeth in but mostly because I don’t any man would be able to look him in the eyes and disrespect him face to face the way they do here and on every other comment board of a LeBron titled article.

      Thanks fro reading my Rant and have a wonderful evening.

        @willcup and @kevindoc, you two need to take a road trip together to Cleveland.

        Then come to LA so I can tell you what PU$$13S you are to your face.

        Nobody read your wall of text

      I don’t hate on LBJ…

      I hate on those that worship LBJ…

      BIG difference…

    • dinofrank60 - Jun 7, 2014 at 9:02 PM

      I don’t think many people hate LeBron. But we are constantly told who is important, what team is important, what numbers are important. You get sick of that, as if we couldn’t figure it out ourselves. And LeBron gets pushed on everyone.
      The shelf life on this stuff is coming up; you can keep with this stuff too long.

    I would love to see the NFL participate in something like this and the first chat session should be none other than Bill Bellichek !!! That would be awesome !! Lol !!

  7. jkirby317 - Jun 7, 2014 at 12:37 PM

    LeBron can’t stand the heat. They should have brought out the stretcher and the oxygen mask.

    Always a good idea to load up on plenty of fluids prior to any Facebook live event. And make sure your work station is in a climate controlled environment.
