I can’t wait for the next part of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. While LeBron James is the most recognizable face of both teams, there are a lot of other players making their way into the limelight. With the Lakers coming off a loss, their big man, Kobe Bryant, is expected to be the focal point of the game. The Cavaliers, on the other hand, have had a very poor year.
The Cleveland Cavaliers could really use some help right about now. But no one knows that better than LeBron James. The legend, who is on a full-time basis, has already had two of the Cavaliers’ best players, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, go down with injuries. The Cavs are a young and somewhat inexperienced team, and the losses of Love and Irving have made them a very tough out in the first round of the playoffs.
LeBron is in a tough spot. He can either continue to make the Cavaliers better, or lose all of his power and glory as the Cleveland Cavaliers look to make a run at the NBA Finals. The Cavaliers are a young and somewhat inexperienced team, and the losses of Love and Irving have made them a very tough out in the first round of the playoffs. But if he decides to stick around and help, he can still win the NBA Championship.
LeBron James is a very good player, so the Cavs shouldn’t be all that worried about his health. However, he has a history of injuries, and some of his best games in the playoffs (like the fourth quarter of the Heat-Spurs game in which he scored 40 points in a game in which the Heat lost) were in the playoffs.
Team LeBron does have a history of injury, but the worst injury he’s ever suffered was a torn ACL in the second round of the playoffs against his rival Bulls, and that’s not really a surprise considering his reputation for “not being the best player on his team.” His first serious injury came in the 2004 playoffs against Atlanta, when he suffered a broken hand and tore his ACL.
When I say “serious injury”, I mean that the injury wasn’t serious. The ACL injury, in hindsight, was a very good thing. It gave LeBron an extra year to learn how to play without the constant worry of injuring himself. The same could be said for the torn ACL that plagued him early in his career.
LeBron was a tough kid to play against. He could throw down his own and block shots the way that he did. While you’re not going to find an NBA player who is as smooth as LeBron is, he was also incredibly talented. It’s the nature of the game to give a player an edge and give him a ton of extra time to develop, so it’s not surprising that he could play like a true champion without ever giving up his own.
We think that its a great thing that LeBron is still alive and playing basketball, and we hope that he can be healthy for his next game. Even if he doesnt play, we’re all hoping that he can be a major part of the team as soon as possible. If not, we might have to wait until he retires and we have another star to fill the void.
We hope LeBron is healthy and we’re glad that he’s still playing. But we also think that he could still be used as a minor part of this team. Since we’re not going to have a true superstar to fill that shoes, we’ll be looking to use him a little bit in order to solidify our lineup.
