The Mvp is on fire
Lebron is as focused as ever in this game. He's been virtually unstopabble, showing the whole world that he's the rightful MVP and not Durant (who played MVP like all year long). I'm seeing Miami eventually beatiing the Celtics. Durant-LBJ Finals to decide which is better.
I can see this happening too but one game at a time also Bosh does not seem to be 100 percent and against OKC he will need to be.
ha im still taking durant..
I take LBJ everyday, because he led Cleveland with this type of play, without a big 2 beside him. Now he is doing it out of necessity and the fact that he has a big 2 helps even more. Durant affects the win column but not as much. He hasnt carried a team to as many wins in a season with as little help as Lebron has. Westbrook, for all the flack he gets is actually underated for what he does for that team and what he means. Without Russ, Harden, and Ibaka...OKC is not very good. Lebron has taken a team with not the best talent to the Finals. Without him, that team went from 1st to last in a season.
This does not mean they will beat OKC. The Heat's play is too infrequent. When they are great, they look it, when they arent, they suck. Its pretty cut and dry, if Lebron brings this every night, they will be champs, if he doesnt they wont.
That's a pretty big "if" there surve. No player has ever played that efficiently every night.
If Miami make it back to the Finals, this could really set the course for the next five years at least; Lebron wins the Miami could go on a huge roll, Durant wins it could kill Lebron's confidence in big games for good.
Either way, I can't wait.
I wanna see how Durant is going to play offensively against Lebron/Battier. Lebron in my opinion is the only player that can stop Durant. He's quicker and stronger, he'll give Durant bumps and bruises in which KD hates.
LeBron is ridiculously unstoppable, the amount of different ways he impacts a game are truly amazing... the guy is special... but these playoffs have proven 2 things, 1 is that hes the best player on Earth and its really not even close and 2 he's gotten clutch
but I like what Lebron said in post-game. he said this year he just got back to playing ball and having fun...with NO regrets. win or lose, he is just going to play and not worry about all the expectations. I think he may finally have that mindset. if so, he will finally get that title. he doesnt have to produce that same statline, but he has to be in charge is what I mean. that is his team. DWade has long wanted to hand those reigns over to him, but I dont believe DWade thought Lebron was ready (mentally). this regular season and post season, he has shown that he is ready.
I think he has always been clutch, but in a different way. Last night you saw what type of clutch he is. He is not the guy that when the game is close he really feels comfortable. He is the guy that looks at the game as a whole when the pressure is on. He would rather not be in that situation, so when his back is against the wall, he would rather bury you under a pile of points.
Thats the type of clutch he is. He may not hit the last big shot, but his mentality is to get it to the point to where he doesnt have to.
@surve yea Lebron did say that, but you know as good as I know he took this game personal. Coach Spoelstra said one of the realest statements I heard in a while after the game... "Nobody likes dirt being thrown on your face before you are dead." Everybody wrote the Heat off, talks of blowing the team up. Bringing up Lebron never wins when teams have a chance to close him out. This dude was serious. No taking pics of the team, no dancing on the bench, no smiling, none of that. Lebron looked like a demon on the court lol. We don't see this type of Lebron every game. When I say this type I mean his mentality not his game. Lebron can have an average game and it be a career night for somebody else. If Lebron takes a serious mentality like he did last night, he is truly unstoppable. It's actually scary to see a player of his caliber play in that type of zone. It's like you don't even have a chance
Lebron gave the pimp hand to all of Boston. 45-15 on 19 of 26 shooting. UNREAL.
