BOBCATS-DOUGLAS-ROBERTS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Chris Douglas-Roberts has gone from being out of the NBA at this time a year ago to being a pivotal role player for the Charlotte Bobcats entering the Eastern Conference playoffs.

That's a testament to the perseverance of the small forward.

Douglas-Roberts was teetering on the brink of being out of the NBA for good last year when the Dallas Mavericks cut him after he played in just six games. He spent the rest of the season unemployed and looking for work.

But he didn't get any calls.

That left Douglas-Roberts "really messed up" and "depressed."

Douglas-Roberts says "There were days where I just wanted to be in the room all day and sleep. I didn't want to talk to anyone. I lost my mind a couple of times. Honestly."

HEAT-JAMES

MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James is getting ready to enter playoff mode.

It's become a rite of spring for him now. He shuts off his phone when the postseason begins, eschews social media, and occupies his mind by reading more and talking less.

And given that he and the Miami Heat have won the last two NBA titles, it clearly seems to be working for him.

James is often fueled by doubters, but says this year he doesn't need any extra motivation. No one needs to tell him what a fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals and third straight championship would mean.

Miami hosts Charlotte on Sunday in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series.
