Morning coffee... Lebron, we have a problem
While I will admit that the amount of hate people are piling on Lebron right now is ridiculous, there is one glaring statistic.
8 POINTS! Mavs win. Series tied 2-2. Uh-oh.
He did lead the team in assists with seven but when did people talk about Michael Jordan and his fantastic assist totals? If Lebron James were wired the same way as Jordan and going to come through in competitive moments like him, he wouldn't have eight points.
You'll have to credit the defense of the Mav's Shawn Marion, who could probably guard the Pakistan-Afghanistan border with success, because the Chosen One hasn't really spread his wings in this series. That's an issue, perhaps the Heat will still win because Lebron is a really versatile player and does plenty of other things out on the court (The reason the Heat are so good isn't their offense, 3-on-5 isn't the best game plan, it's their DEFENSE. It's swarming), but when you start talking about legacies and Lebron's place of history, people will say this...
And with that... Headlines...
