LeBron Loses in Debut

Get your schadenfreude while you can: LeBron James and the Miami Heat lost their season opener to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday, 88-80. Despite LeBron’s 31 points, the Heat couldn’t pull it together, with Dwayne Wade scoring just 13 points and Chris Bosh scoring eight. Celtics fans rained chants of “overrated!” on them, but Boston’s coach, Doc Rivers, said after the game that the Heat will still be “great.” James explained his team’s failure by saying, "When you have so many options, it's something I'm not accustomed to, having that many threats out on the court at the same time."
