I guess LeBron was trying to get even with Mike Malone, who coached him in Cleveland, for saying during "The Last Dance" that LeBron doesn't have the killer mentality that Jordan did. Malone didn't lie.
LeBron, nearing the end of his 17th season, got a huge break when he got 5 months off to get ready for a playoff push. Now he gets to rest again as Boston and Miami battle it out. What a Covid championship this will be for LeBron.
This is LeBron's easiest path to a ring: KD/Kyrie decided not to play. So LBJ got to beat a 35-39 Portland (and Dame got hurt), then the Rockets after Danuel House broke house rules, then the Nuggets instead of Kawhi's Clippers, and now maybe the overachieving Heat. Meant to be.
How is it Lincoln Riley continues to recruit some of the best offensive skill talent nationally - and continues to trot out awful defenses??? Riley's Sooners are all offense, no defense. They win a lot of shootouts - and they just lost another one.
Spencer Rattler, who has a whip of an arm, had been deadly accurate ... until the game got tight and KSt started hitting him. Then he lost his poise and his aim. I thought he was quicker/faster. Couldn't hurt the Wildcats with any escapability or breakaway bolts.
Another purple nightmare developing for my Oklahoma Sooners. Should be ahead by 3 TDs. Now down by 3 to KSt. No pass rush, while KSt getting more and more heat on Rattler. COME ON, SPENCER, TAKE A BITE OUT OF 'EM.
On today's Undisputed, I predicted the Celts would win this game. Too proud, too strong on defense to get gentleman's-swept in the conference finals. Just wanted this one more. But I've got Miami in six.
Messaged received. All of a sudden, the free throw line just tilted in favor of the Lakers. They shot 35 to the Nuggets’ 23. Way to go, Frankie V and Robbie P. More @undisputed, now on FS1 twitter.com/undisputed/sta…
Story of this game was, LeBron got embarrassed at the rim by Jamal Murray's up-and-under trick shot, so he decided to take the challenge of guarding Jamal in the 4th quarter and pretty much shut him down and got even.
I am stunned LeBron James did not make Time's Top 100 Most Influential this year ... while 7 other athletes did. On race issues, I hang on LeBron's every word. He sets the tone. His influence is greater than the other 7 athletes combined, no offense to them. This is just wrong.
I said before this series started that the Lakers needed to play Dwight Howard on Joker, and start Dwight, and tonight he is DOMINATING the Nuggets. He has an edge, a physicality, a savvy that JaVale doesn't.
I didn’t see this from Bird or Jordan in their rookie years, because they didn’t get that far in the playoffs. This is the Eastern Conference Finals swing game! Every shot Tyler Herro took seemed to save them. More @undisputed, now on FS1 twitter.com/undisputed/sta…
My heart wants this to go 2-2 and see how LeBron & company react under true Western Conference playoff fire in a Game 5. But my head reminds me of the Lakers 21-4 run in the 4th quarter of Game 3. More @undisputed, now on FS1 twitter.com/undisputed/sta…
