Time after time Lebron James has oustanding performances during the regular season and through the opening rounds of the playoffs. But time after time he fails to come up big when it counts. The Finals. How can someone who shows that his "talents" and his athleticism is head and shoulders above the rest of the competition come up so small down the final stretch. This year in the Finals James only has 9 4th qtr points, Dirk has 44! Who can forget the 2005 NBA Finals when he was merely a spectator when the Spurs swept his Cavaliers. Lebron had 8 points in game 4 of the 2011 NBA Finals, the lowest in the playoffs in his career...Michael Jordan's lowest scoring playoff game was 22. Which brings up the question, are the expectations the world has for King James too high, unfair even? Is this who he is, a ridiculously talented athlete with no killer instict? The answer is not clear yet, only time will tell us. What is clear is that we have a great series on our hands and recommend we just sit back and enjoy it.
