Seven years ago today, LeBron’s legacy was on the line.
- Chasing first title
- Down 3-2 in Boston
- One year after Mavs Finals
He delivered:
45 PTS
19-26 FG
15 REB
5 AST

Still to this day, best performance I've ever seen. He went into a killer zone the likes of which can't be mimicked. God himself wouldn't have stopped LJ that day.

LeBron is the greatest of all time, if Jordan wasn't so insecure he would have already crowned him. GTFOH

He is second. For now. That could easily drop down to three four or five if he keeps up his off court antics. We need to see SOME semblance of success in the big bad west or else his east dominance will be discounted even more than it already is.

So, what you are saying is, his 16th season + is going to drop him down the rankings, behind guys that likely didnt even play 16 seasons


And to top it off, it will also be due to off court stuff. Never change boom

Bill Simmons’ grantland piece on this was so good

LINK

quote:

I don’t know what happened. I just know the shots wouldn’t stop going in. After about the fifth dagger in a row (he made 10 straight), the crowd started groaning on every make — shades of Philly’s Andrew Toney ripping our hearts out 30 years ago. If you’ve ever been in the building for one of those games, you know there isn’t a deadlier sound. He single-handedly murdered one of the giddiest Celtics crowds I can remember. Thirty points in the first half. Thirty! All with that blank look on his face. It was like watching surveillance video of a serial killer coldly dismembering a body and sticking the parts in the fridge. Only we were right there.



quote:

You can’t imagine what this was like to witness in person. I know Michael Jordan had similarly astonishing games, and others, too, but not with stakes like that. This wasn’t just an elimination game. This was LeBron James’s entire career being put on trial … and it only took an hour for him to tell the jury, “Go home. I’m one of the best players ever. Stop picking me apart. Stop talking about the things I can’t do. Stop holding me to standards that have never been applied to any other NBA player. Stop blaming me for an admittedly dumb decision I never should have made. Stop saying I’m weak. Stop saying that I don’t want to win. Stop. Just … stop.”

As a Celtics fan, I was devastated. As a basketball fan, I appreciated the performance for what it was. One of the greatest players ever was playing one of his greatest games ever. He swallowed up every other relevant story line.


quote:

The fans were so shell-shocked that many (including me and my father) filed out with three minutes remaining, not because we were lousy fans, not to beat the traffic, but because we didn’t want to be there anymore. We wanted to get away from LeBron. He ruined what should have been a magical night. We never really had a chance to cheer, swing the game, rally our guys, anything. He pointed a remote control at us and pressed “MUTE.” It was like being in a car accident. LeBron James ran over 18,000 people.

your estrogen is way too high dude..I say that seriously. if you are evaluating players by "off court antics" there is a hormonal imbalance somewhere

The off court stuff affects the on court success Bubba. when no one wants to play with him bc of his locker room antics and he loses out in rd 1 of the playoffs, that is something that we have to consider. Also gotta look at the ease of his conference he has spent all his time in.

You know my MO is big picture I look at everything. Why would years played ever be the primary factor in deciding these kinda things I have no idea. I can’t ever be so narrow minded with my analyses.

I remember watching that game, dude was simply unconscious and the Heat carried that momentum to win the 2012 title over KD, Russ, and Harden, one of the most clutch performances of all-time
