Watching the Finals has made me appreciate his game more. I still think the dude’s Hollywood as hell (copyright
Joakim Noah) and someone who makes terrible off-court decisions, but it’s time to face the facts. LeBron James will be considered one of the best of all-time.
His biggest “fault” has been answered in these Finals; he’s been megaclutch when he’s needed to be. He’s used his refined post game to score, hasn’t relied on his jumper, and has routinely barreled towards the basket for easy layups.
The Decision was wrong. “Not six, not seven, etc” was wrong. And his chronic ref-pleading disease is certainly not endearing. But LeBron James is the best player in basketball, and he’s amazing to watch.
