If you don’t like LeBron James, you don’t like basketball

Guess we’ll have to wait at least one more game to see if LeBron James is going to come up big in a fourth quarter of a meaningful playoff game. That’s what happens when the guy scores 41 of his destructive 45 in the first three quarters.

This was why Doc Rivers was anything but smug following Tuesday night’s triumph in Miami. He knew the Celtics needed to win one more game in order to advance to the Finals, and he knew very well that, no matter what his lunatic critics may say, LeBron James was capable of standing in his team’s way.
