It doesn't seem fitting, since there's really no where for him to hide.

He has more at stake than any other Miami player in these NBA Finals, especially now that the San Antonio Spurs are one game away from grabbing the title.

James says he looks forward to the challenge that starts when Miami hosts Game 6 of the series on Tuesday night.
