LeBron James: "I'm ready to go" after leg cramps in Game 4

Miami Heat forward LeBron James dealt with severe leg cramps in the final minutes of Tuesday's Game 4 of the NBA Finals, but James is prepared to resume his quest for his first NBA championship tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder, reports The Palm Beach Post's Ethan Skolnick on Twitter.

James began experiencing the leg cramps midway through the fourth quarter. He battled through the injury and, with 2:54 left in the game, drilled a three-pointer to give Miami a 97-94 lead that it did not relinquish.

But James was forced to sit out the final 55 seconds of the game. Although few thought James would miss Game 5 on Thursday while only one win away from his first title, there was still some concern over the health of his leg. Given James' comments, he seems prepared to contribute, even if he isn't 100 percent.
