James
LeBron James -- aka @KingJames on Twitter -- held an impromptu chat session with fans Saturday.

After back-to-back losses in New York, followed by an early morning arrival in Miami, Heat forward LeBron James was feeling restless. So at 5 a.m. ET, he invited fans to send him questions on Twitter. What started as a 15-minute Q&A stretched for nearly an hour, where James touched on his opinions on the hardest players in the league for him to defend, Derrick Rose's future and what motivates him to get better. He even took shots at his hairline and his performance in the 2011 NBA finals. Check out the full transcript below.

Well since I'm up and for the ones that's up as well. Q & A for 15 mins. Go!
