They always seem to be about a month (or so) behind on these things.
I must say that I am getting tired of taking good sized leads and giving them back just so that the team can fight it out in the 4th quarter.
It happens in the NBA though. For whatever the reason, teams go on runs, team A loses a bit of focus, they aren't as intense because of the level of fight has gone down because of a big lead, players get tired, so on and so on.
Main thing though is that you guys won, LeBron continues to prove he is very much so more clutch than Kobe and more efficienct.
LeBron had a chance to show some of his defense on a top notch player on a national stage, and this is why you allow players time to develop. LeBron is shutting his naysayers down slowly but surely with about the knocks on his game, and he has Kobe homers in rabid denial that he's earning his accolades and they aren't being thrown on him undeservedly.
He's learning how to use his body (weight, height, speed) and he's realizing that no one can really stop him. Screw who shoots better 3's, give me the more efficient player and guy who'll make the right play.
Great win guys congrats and Thanks for all of the meltdown talk and fodder I get to hear and read here in LA over the next week
