LeBron Shows Why he is the King [David Stefanini]

What an amazing basketball game! LeBron James just put in one of the greatest performances in NBA playoff history. Just get these stats:

He scored the last 25 points over the last 3 quarters (4th, and 2 OTs), 29 of the last 30, including the final 11 field goals for his team.

Watching this game, I saw LeBron grow up into a winner. He decided he was not going to lose the game. J. Mark English and myself were watching this game, debating whether LeBron was more like Mike or Magic. Then it occurred to both of us; it is now time to say LeBron James is LeBron James. We have to throw out the notion that he is going to be one of those two players. LeBron is going to go down not as the second Magic or the second Jordan, but he is going to be the first LeBron.

Time after time, he would come down the court and run the ball right down the Piston's throat. Then, late in the game he would hit big time shots, layups, dunks, and free throws. It was one of the greatest performances I have ever witnessed. I now understand the Nike 'witness' commerical; we are witnesses.
