Champs of Free Agency, Heat Seek Much Bigger Win
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James and Dwyane Wade joked often, smiled easily, answered thoughtfully.

A few minutes later, Dirk Nowitzki bounded up to a podium and offered a big ``How we doin!'' to the assembled media.

You'd never know only one of them is a ``good guy.''
Less than a year after solidifying their place as the NBA's villains with their high-profile partnership last summer, James, Wade and the Miami Heat are in the NBA finals against the Dallas Mavericks and Nowitzki.

Game 1 is Tuesday night in the arena where the Heat celebrated like champions last July. James says the Heat ``got a lot of flack this year, mostly because of myself,'' but insists coming to Miami was the best way to realize his vision of winning a championship.
