One off game. That’s all it was, right? Yeah, sure. Until game two rolled around and Lebron’s already suspect perimeter game was exposed for all the world to see.
Sure, he’s the most exciting player in the NBA, that is, if you haven’t already jumped on the Chris Paul bandwagon, but dear God, are we seriously going to overlook this?
Are we for real, in all our skeptical wisdom as fans and writers, going to look past a 19% shooting effort and 17 turnovers in two straight games? And not just any two games. We’re talking two straight games in the second round of the playoffs. You know, the series that, if you were to win it, you’re suddenly four wins away from the NBA Finals.
I mean, I hate to say it, but isn’t this kind of all sorts of hilarious? Bare with me folks, but I’m going to go out on a limb here. Despite what Stephen A. Smith (the A stands for something other than his parents intended) and others want you to believe, Lebron “King” James, is in full choke mode.
