Lakers got down big early, got it down to 10 early in the 4th.
But CP3 executed 3 big possessions down the stretch, 2 assists and a midrange shot himseld. He kicked it out to wide open shooters for key 3 pointers. What happened to the great Lakers defense? Well a couple of times Bron didn’t run back on D.
Bron walked off the court early, didn’t shake hands, not even with his buddy Chris Paul.
Damn he shook hands of the Warriors at least 2 of the 3 times they beat him in the Finals. He that upset about first round exit?
For a player who was so hyped while in high school LeBron has more than lived up to the expectations. That said he's always done things that rub me the wrong way, and the NBA basically working for him is one of the most annoying things. He can do petulant things and the media immediately moves past it. He's changed teams 3 times always for his own advantage and gets forgiven by the media, he leaves early and gets forgiven, he refuses to talk and gets forgiven, he flops and it's ignored, he tampers and it's ignored.
Incredible player, but I don't see how the Lakers can get back into contention without him convincing some superstar to work for FAR less money than they can make. Basically Kawhi, and I don't see that happening.
