So, how do you top an epic Game 6 to stave off elimination? Well, against all odds… you will your team to a grind it out defensive gem of a victory in a place where the home team was previously undefeated in ten tries. Or, just another day at the office for LeBron James in the Eastern Conference Finals. Yes, our well of superlatives ran dry about two years ago when King James delivered a title to a city and fanbase that desperately needed one. Now, we’re almost forced to invent new words to describe his greatness. After yet another incredible Game 7 in Boston, where he once again ripped out the hearts of the Celtics and their fans with 35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and two gigantic blocks while playing the entire 48 minutes, LeBron showed that he can make anything happen.
To praise The King and his supporting court, Nate, Tom and EG hopped in the booth and were anything but short and precise in breaking down this epic Game 7 that resulted in LeBron’s eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals. They also covered everything Green… from Uncle Jeff’s contributions to the sickly look on the faces of those in Boston that witnessed this muzzling of their young team. There were kudos to go around for Tristan, George, JR and Kyle too, and even some kind words for Ty Lue (not to mention some relief for EG that he can go another year without tipping a cap to a certain President Genius). There was also some speculation on who the next opponent might be… but more of that to come in the days ahead.
For now, we were just happy to echo our C:tB Angolan fan’s sentiments… that our greatest desire is to know King LeBron… then he can make it happen… in the Finals and wherever else he wants.
