For being the best basketball player in the world, LeBron James’ life ain’t all that easy.
In Game One of the NBA Finals, he scored 51 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists on 19 of 32 shooting, and had a chance to win the game at the end of regulation. Unfortunately, JR Smith happened — and they lost in overtime.
(Also keep in mind “Head Coach” Ty Lue had a time-out but didn’t call one. LeBron’s reaction on the bench said it all.)
In Game Two, LeBron scores 29 points, 9 rebounds and 13 assists on 10 of 20 shooting. He even got his teammates involved. Not only was that NOT enough, the Golden State Warriors beat his Cleveland Cavaliers worse.
What can a brotha do? (Or in the worse of Tyrese, “what do you want from me?!!”)
I never thought I’d see myself type this, but I really feel bad for LeBron James.
I mean, these Cavs are truly a one-man band. The Allen Iverson-led 2001 Eastern Conference champ 76ers thinks the Cavs are a one-man band.
I said before the series this would be a gentlemen’s sweep in the Warriors favor, and right now this has the look of a REAL sweep.
I don’t see how this version of the Cavs could compete with Golden State. One great player vs. three or four future Hall of Famers (Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Kalyn Thompson and MAYBE Draymond Green).
LeBron has no shot, and he knows it. That’s why he’ll be getting the hell out of Cleveland after the gentlemen’s sweep is over…
