Bob Finnan of The News-Herald reports: Wizards swingman Mike Miller wore James' Nike shoes to practice and was told by teammate DeShawn Stevenson, "We don't wear these around here."
James said he didn't care.
"Mike is a good friend of mine," he said. "He named his son after my best friend, Maverick (Carter). We have a good history."
James said Miller should lace up his sneakers, though.
"For an unathletic white guy, these are the best shoes to wear," James said.

Veteran NBA center Dikembe Mutombo is currently without a team, but the free agent says he's received interest from several squads, and he hopes to sign and be back on the court within two weeks.
The 42-year-old Mutombo told the Boston Globe on Sunday that the Celtics, Heat, Spurs and other teams have expressed interest in adding him to their rosters. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel said on Monday that Heat officials would neither confirm nor deny their interest in Mutombo. The Heat are also waiting on the possible return of Alonzo Mourning from last year's knee injury. Mourning was in the Heat locker room before Monday's game.
The News-Herald in Ohio reported that while the Cavaliers don't appear to have major interest in Mutombo, they have also not ruled him out. The story noted that if Zydrunas Ilgauskas were going to miss a considerable amount of time, then it may be more attractive to the Cavs to pick up Mutombo.

The Morning Journal in Cleveland reports that the Cavaliers may not be willing to mess with a good thing, in regards to changing the roster before the NBA trade deadline in a couple of months.
"We like our team," GM Danny Ferry said. "We like continuity. We're always exploring ways how to improve our organization."
Ferry wouldn't rule out a trade, however, if the right deal came along.
"If there's an opportunity that makes us better, we still have to do our job."
