What got into LeBron James yesterday? In a statement game for this year's NBA MVP, Bron-Bron tallied 40 points, 18 rebounds, and nine assists as the Heat knocked off the Pacers in Game 4 of their best-of-7 series. So, what'd he do before his big game to get ready? Bump Thug Motivation 101? Watch an hour's worth of Skip Bayless? Scream on Erik Spoelstra?

Nah, none of the above. Instead, King James got cozy at his locker…and cracked open The Hunger Games. Strange.

Now, can you imagine what would have happened if he hadn't had a huge game? Good grief. Stephen A and Skip would still be debating his pre-game reading material on First Take right now...
