LeBron James takes pride in the workouts he puts himself through during the season and in the offseason to make him one of the best-conditioned players in the NBA. It was reported earlier in the NBA season that studies said James has the body of a 19-year old, which is crazy knowing he has 14 years of playing in the NBA under his belt. In the NBA Finals, he is playing against the fast-paced offense of the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors have an offense that can make opponents tire quickly, and it looked like James was trying to catch his breath in the third quarter of Game 3 in the NBA Finals.

At practice on Wednesday in Cleveland a reporter asked LeBron about his stamina and he had quite the response.

'Do I look tired?'

James did, in fact, look tired in the middle of Game 3, and said in a post game interview that all he needs is food and wine and he'll be alright. This sparked some questions of whether the Warriors' fast and frantic play style caused LeBron James to get tired. James wasn't sure why these questions arose, as he asked players -- courtesy of ESPN, "Do I look tired? I feel great. I'm averaging a triple-double in the Finals. I'm pretty good, I would think."

LeBron James' statement isn't false, as he is currently averaging a triple-double in this series. He is averaging 28.5 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in the series.

In Game 2 he tied Magic Johnson's record of eight triple-doubles in the NBA Finals. James is having to guard the second-best player in the world in Kevin Durant and he has to take control of an offense that has looked anemic at times, so it isn't so far-fetched to think that LeBron could be a little tired. James isn't going to get any rest, as he is playing arguably the biggest game of his career Wednesday night.

Protect the house

The Cavs need to defend home court if they want any chance of beating the Warriors in this series. The Cavs are 5-1 at The Q this postseason and 14-2 in their past 16 playoff games overall. The Cavs need to win to get on the board and put some pressure back on the Warriors. LeBron commented on the importance of home court, saying to reporters, "We have an opportunity to protect home, and if we do that, we'll put ourselves back in the series." -- per ESPN.

The Cavs still have faith that they can win the series, as Kyle Korver said, "We've got to get this one at home and then just keep building from there. This series is far from over." Korver is right, as he and everyone else saw the Cavs pull off a 3-1 comeback last year in the Finals. They were actually down 0-2 last year as well, so this is nothing new for LeBron and Cleveland.

Game 3 airs on ABC at 9 p.m. EST.
