For the first time in forever, I actually closely watched the NBA playoffs, which were highly entertaining. Well, except for the Hawks blowing, but that is typical.
The more and more anti-LeBron the world becomes, the more I have been pulling for the guy and the Heat. Say what you will, but to me, the Miami Heat were all about being a team. When it counted the most, LeBron stepped up and led by example.
His 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists in the closeout game represented, by any measure, the cherry on one of the greatest individual playoff runs in history. He averaged 30 points and 10 rebounds during the playoffs; moved to power forward when Chris Bosh missed nine playoff games with an injury; led rallies from deficits in three consecutive series; delivered one of the most dominating games of this generation with 45 points in a road elimination game in Boston; got his first Game 7 victory; set a record for number of playoff games with at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists; and became the fifth player ever to have multiple Finals triple-doubles. You could go on and on. The summation is that James is a worthy champion.
What’s not to like about the Heat’s team effort and the way LeBron played in the playoffs?
Speaking of wankers, I wonder what sort of open letter that nut job owner in Cleveland is going to write next?
