MIAMI – If LeBron James played for the San Antonio Spurs, Gregg Popovich might have a message for him.
It's the same one he's occasionally delivered to Tim Duncan.
Unselfish play is great. Moving the ball to open teammates is usually the right idea. That belief has carried the Spurs to four NBA titles.
Sometimes, though, it's best if the superstar takes on more himself.
Popovich says he's talked to players about being more aggressive, which is what the Miami Heat may need from James.
He had 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists in Game 1, a great line but not enough in San Antonio's 92-88 victory. The MVP says he may have a different game plan for Game 2, but "it will be dumb of me to reveal it today."
