This clip, from LBJ’s 55-point eruption last week against Milwaukee, will melt your face. We all know that LeBron was created by the basketball gods to obliterate the ceiling of hoops greatness. But come on. It just isn’t fair that he can do that. Iif he starts making threes with regularity, he will become completely unguardable.
What is a dude who came into the game shooting 26% from three doing taking 26-foot pull-up jumpers in transition? They’re just not smart basketball plays. What the hell, mayne? If he’s anyone but LeBron, people call out this tomfoolery for what it is: stupid.
The problem is he’s, well, LeBron. Which leads me back to my initial reaction: Damn.
