The Washington Wizards play the Miami Heat in Florida tonight, and the division rival will make a return trip to Washington on December 18th. Read below to win tickets to that game.
I’m relatively apathetic toward LeBron James. It’s not that I no longer don’t like him in a double negative manner. It’s just that after he further exposed to the national scene what Wizards followers knew the whole time, his villain status lost value in my eyes. LeBron is not really worth caring about, although one would most certainly rather him lose.

While the Washington Post’s Michael Lee writes of LeBron’s “villain” status in Washington along with his current ties to the franchise, LeBron’s Heat have recently called a “players only” meeting. Oh, and there’s been a hubbub over LeBron bumping shoulders with his coach, Eric Spolestra, via Michael Wallace of The Heat Index.
But regardless of present issues and the future, and the fact that on Monday evening the Wizards could drop the Miami Heat to a .500 record on the year at 9-9 (and not tie the Washington franchise-worst mark with an 0-8 start on the road to begin the season – just over 9.2-percent of voters recently said the Wizards would notch their first road win in 2010-11 against the Heat), let’s take a look at just a few of the past memorable pictures of when LeBron has faced the Washington professional basketball team.
Speaking of the past, a former participant in pseudo rivalry between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers isn’t doing so hot in his new locale.
