Three years ago, LeBron James played a perfect postseason game: 45 points in 45 not-to-be-believed minutes. He single-handedly pushed the 2012 Conference Finals to Game 7 (which Miami of course won), and silenced all doubters in the process.
It’s hard to imagine a dude being more impressive than LeBron was that night. Boston had momentum and a home crowd, all attention was on Miami’s superstar, and, sure enough, LeBron delivered. And delivered. And delivered. Bucket after bucket, fadeaway after fadeaway, a nonstop wave of LeBron Being Better Than You.
Tonight, Postseason LeBron returns to the scene of the crime (admittedly with less intrigue — he’s up 2-0 in a series that should be over before long). I advise that you spend six minutes reminding yourself what he’s capable of.
