Good morning, New York sports fans!â†µ
LeBron James and the Miami Heat come to Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks tonight in a highly-anticipated NBA game. The Garden was electric Wednesday night as the Knicks nearly defeated the Boston Celtics, and it will be again this evening. The reception for LeBron should not be as nasty as the one he got when he returned to Cleveland a few weeks ago, but it won't be a pleasant one since James spurned the Knicks for the Heat. Miami, by the way, has won 10 straight. See Posting and Toasting for more.
