Welcome back to Rob’s. This is the world wide web’s barber shop. Today’s topic is LeBron James. Or, rightfully referred to as "King James."
That performance against the Detroit Pistons, in Auburn Hills was the best play-off performance since MJ torched the Utah Jazz in Utah, with the flu. While LeBron didn’t have the flu, what he did to the Pistons was downright sick.
This young man is only 22 years old and he put his entire franchise on his back. After a so-so third quarter, James took over in the fourth and in both overtimes. At one point, he put up a fade-away three-point jumper, that looked to be under control. James made a statement that he may be the most dominant player in the NBA.
In my 36 years, and that may be the best single game play-off performance in basketball. Not only did James go on the road to dominate, he put his team in position to close this series out in six games. We saw that coming, we just didn’t see the Cleveland Cavaliers as being the team that did it. I think we’re all "King James" fans. I want to see this young man take that plunge into immortality. Go LeBron.
