James and Wade Team Up Against the Bobcats; Two Coach Changes in the NFL

LeBron James scored 26 of his 38 points during the second half of Miami’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday, helping his team reach a 96—82 victory. Dwayne Wade added 11 rebounds and 31 points to the Heat’s score. “The way we’re winning- we’re defending and everyone is involved in our offense. That’s good basketball,” James told reports after the game. This game was the first this season in which both James and Wade scored over 30 points. “I think they’re also getting a better idea of how to play off each other,” said their coach Erik Spoelstra. “I think they’re enjoying this new frontier, this new development in each of their games but it’s also making each one better and making it easier for one another.”

Two teams in the NFL have made some changes in their staff. First, the Cleveland Browns fired their head coach Eric Mangini after their ending their second consecutive 5-11 season. “Although we have made improvements this season, my responsibility is to ensure that we establish a program that will allow this team to compete at a championship level,” said the Browns president Mike Holmgren. “That will continue to be our goal in everything we do.”

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings have removed the short-term tag on Leslie Frazier’s title, making him their permanent head coach. He had originally come in as a temporary replacement for Brad Childress. “We are thrilled that Leslie Frazier will continue to lead this football team,” said Zygi Wilf, Vikings owner. “Our players and entire organization have great respect for Leslie. He has a vast knowledge of the game, both as a former player and as a coach, and he has a terrific way with those who play for him and work with him. We are fortunate to have him as our head coach and look forward to many successful years together.”
