LeBron James switched shoes at halftime, 'I'm a little weird sometimes'

LeBron James on black uniforms: 'A staple of this franchise forever' Buzz City Beat: Charlotte Hornets buy-low trade idea, Nic Batum calls Jeremy Lamb a secret weapon

The Charlotte Hornets have officially ruled out swingman Nicolas Batum for Friday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to an ulnar nerve contusion in his elbow, the team has formally announced. He's averaging 15.5 points and 12.9 rebounds and even inspired profiles of maturity and redemption before the season. Dwight Howard scored a team-high, 26 points, during their last game against the Wizards.

Either way, James wore a yellow pair of his signature Nike shoes for the first half, shot 3-of-8 for six points, and switched them out at half time.

"I'm a little weird sometimes", he said. I wasn't playing well, up to my standards so.

He fixed that, and then some.

After a sluggish start in Friday night's 100-99 home win over the Charlotte Hornets, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James chose to change his shoes at halftime. But he missed a long three-point attempt on the final possession to finish 1-for-10 from three-point range and 10-for-29 from the field.

"It's probably going to be a staple of this franchise forever", James said. "We had some great looks, just couldn't string a few together, especially in the fourth quarter, but defensively we was in tune".

In Cleveland's next game that season, at Dallas, James started the game without the headband for the first time since the 2003 preseason. He missed a free throw after a drive on Dwight Howard with 1:48 left that could've broken a 99-99 tie (his layup tied the game), and he missed a 3-pointer with 12.7 seconds left that would've all-but iced the game. The Cavs topped the host Hornets 115-107 in the first meeting this season on November 15. James had eight of his 27 points in the 4th quarter. "They're a battle-tested team with those guys", Williams said. "(With a) big body like that, we were just trying to tell everybody to stay home, guard your man and we'll live and die with whether he hits it or not". Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marvin Williams scored 17 each for the Hornets. The Hornets had the ball with 11.1 seconds left, but missed two more threes to fall to 1-8 on the road. "We probably have to go back and fix some things but we fought hard". He scored eight in the final period. He scored or assisted on 10 of Cleveland's baskets, and was an assist shy of his personal record in any quarter (nine, against in on January 29, 2010).
