So, now we know why LeBron James has been playing so well in the Eastern Conference Finals. It's not because he's got Dwyane Wade by his side or because Chris Bosh has actually been playing like the superstar that everyone proclaimed him to be when he joined the Heat last summer. Instead, it's because none other than Drake has providing King James with inspirational BBMs like "Tonight is your night" before every playoff game.

"What we have it real family," James said after the game. "It's not just because we are successful at what we do. We really care about one another on a day-to-day basis. Anytime you get a friend that can come and support you in what you do, I really respect that." Quick: Someone give Derrick Rose's pin to Tyler, the Creator! [via Yahoo! Sports]
