Same Ol’ Spurs — James Plays Passive, Now 0-5 in Finals vs S.A.

Posted by RichieZ23 on June 6, 2013

The narrative prior to Game 1 of the NBA Finals was how much LeBron James has evolved as a player. Six years ago, James was swept in the Finals by the Duncan-Parker-Ginobili led Spurs while James was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With a more talented team via the Miami Heat, James can now get his revenge for 2007. LeBron is a completely different player since then. He is also a completely different player than in 2011, his first season in Miami that saw LeBron lose again in the Finals, this time to the Dallas Mavericks.

James finally broke though in 2012 as the Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder for his first championship.

But in Game 1 of the 2013 Finals, James played like the LeBron of old. Forget about his stat-stuffing triple double that many will point to. Sure, 18 points, 10 assists, and a ridiculous game-high 18 rebounds is nothing to sneeze at. It’s a career game for many. And while the Spurs played good defense on James, too often he was too passive with the ball in his hands.

Cavaliers Are Still Alive In Playoff Series Despite 32-point Embarrassment

Posted by RichieZ23 on May 12, 2010

Alright, just when did winning three games in a best-of-seven series win a team the series?  Anyone?  The last time I checked, you still have to win four games to advance, and the Boston Celtics have won just three so far.  Yet it seems to be a foregone conclusion to many people that the series is over, Lebron is bolting for New York, and he’s suddenly deserving of the MVP.

Get real people.
