  • NBA playoffs looking more wide-open than expected

    Miami Heat players including LeBron James, top center, celebrate on June 21, 2013, after Game 7 of the NBA championship game against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami. As he walked off the court for the final time last season, James shouted to no one in particular, ‘Keep doubting me!
