Whoever wants to LeBron modest, here it is: “I am very happy to get a few points to assist in the victory of my team.” But the preference when the bombastic headlines LeBron will stay with this other quote, also shortly after crushing the Bobcats : “The man who is above all of us gave me an incredible ability to play this game called basketball. And I just want to take advantage of it in every game. I go to the court to be the MPV of the NBA, the MVP of my team. My own MVP, for me and my family, I have set the bar very high and I have to respond to those expectations.” LeBron…
We do not know who the hell gave him that ability, but the fact is that Kevin Durant had written the MVP trophy surely too soon. And we had predicted that this year would come with a body Pacers lead the Eastern playoffs again too soon. In recent weeks, especially since the All Star break, the Heat has started to be the Heat and LeBron being LeBron more than ever. He has played better games because there’s nothing like a feat in the playoffs, and he already has a few in the bag. But numerically it can be said that against the Bobcats, a name to be but will be in the history book of one of the best players ever, LeBron James ( 37’3 points and 67% shooting in three games with mask ) played the best game of his career.
Here we go, tight belts: 61 points, 8/10 triples, 22/33 from the field, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. And only two turnovers in 41 minute more. When he sat down, it was 1:24, the crowd was standing and his companions rose to surround. It was a spontaneous display of pious devotion rather than witnesses and almost, as he opened the religious melon, apostles of a prophet who had one of those nights that occasionally have extraordinary players, one that could have continued to play and getting into, playing and getting into, playing and getting … Records : never exceeded 60 points in a game (his previous mark, 56 in March 2005 and still with the Cavaliers) and not a Miami Heat player had scored both (Glen Rice got 56 on April 15, 1995). More: it is also a record for him and his team converted 22 field shots and got only 25 points in the third quarter. After 24 in the first half and 49 before the fourth quarter … In the third quarter, the Bobcats, a good team that smells pretty playoffs but did leave the track on his own feet, scored the same as King : another 25 points.
The display of LeBron ‘s eighth straight victory sealed the reigning champion , which casts its long shadow over Indianapolis, but especially brand difference a player, why he always enter the playoffs as favorite: who wants Miami will eliminate four games to beat the current seven LeBron. Good luck with that: Dallas did at the end of 2011 seems like a lifetime ago, it almost makes Indiana the last end of the Eastern Conference finals and almost, almost, almost make the Spurs after the final. But neither the most nor the almost, are almost enough. LeBron and it is getting better player. Today has little to do with who won the first ring to the Thunder and almost nothing with which he was powerless to Carlisle defense systems and the heroic work of Nowitzki. One player who was already an earthquake, it was just a mold from which emerged a superior way to play basketball. It was in these playoffs, in 2012.
