Stars of the Hardwood- NBA Finals Game 6

Max: Hey LeBron, are we gonna have a Game 7?

For the second straight game, LeBron James submitted an all-time great performance. He finished with 41 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds, four blocks and three steals. He WAS the Cavaliers offense.

Before the series, I was pretty sure LeBron would need to carry the Cavaliers past the Warriors with great performances on both ends of the court. I picked the Warriors because I wasn’t sure this LeBron- 31-years-old, with 46,000+ miles on him- could do that anymore.

I’ve never been more wrong. What LeBron has done in this series is somehow more impressive than what he did in last year’s Finals. Given the opponent and that it has come in back-to-back do-or-die games, it might even be better than when he singlehandedly dragged the ’07 Cavaliers to the Finals, when Larry Hughes was his sidekick.

I pity those who fail to enjoy him. I’m more than happy to kneel before our King James.

Kelly: I think I may have officially seen it all. Steph Curry fouling out of a game (and throwing his beloved mouthpiece). LeBron James nailing threes. Some guy named Dahntay Jones making impact plays – seriously you can ask Max I asked if they pulled him in from the crowd to fill out the roster, because he’s not exactly a household name.

But back to the star – no questions asked it is LeBron James. In his last two games, James has put up 82 points, 24 rebounds, 18 assists, 7 steals and 6 blocks. My god.

Let those numbers sink in for a second.

Sunk in? No. Well they shouldn’t because that’s incredible. Those are astounding numbers and he is the sole reason the Cavaliers are one win away from a title.

Also, even if he didn’t put up 41 tonight, he would have gotten my star just for this:
