Ever wonder what could motivate an NBA player into having one of the best performances ever seen in playoff history? We could give you a million guesses and you still wouldn’t come close!
Before recording 40 points, 18 rebounds and 9 assists to lift the Miami Heat over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, LeBron James was seen warming up by reading “The Hunger Games.”
I like that LeBron was reading a physical copy of The Hunger Games rather than on iPad/Kindle. Sometimes I miss real books.

We’re not sure if it was a slow news day for ESPN or what, but they even debated the topic on their hit show “First Take.”
Skip and Stephen A are talking about Lebron reading 'The Hunger Games' before game 4…. #isthisreallife?

Thanks to LeBron James, it’s safe to assume the popular book will somehow do the unthinkable and become even more popular.
