LeBron James silenced his critics for one day at least with a monster performance against the Pacers yesterday. The NBA's MVP scored 40 points, grabbed 18 rebounds and dished out nine assists, including this nifty no-look pass. How did James prepare for Game 4?

According to one of the actresses, who Tweeted this photo, the very image-conscious Tebow asked that she delete the pic since it featured him with strippers.
