With LeBron’s Birthday Presents…You Would Cry Too!!
It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to.
December 30th has not been a great day for the King…on the basketball court!
Despite the day serving as a celebration for his 24 years of royal living, he still managed to add a huge “L” to his team’s record. The James Gang is now 26-5 as the Miami Heat defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 104-95, last night at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
LeBron James danced all night long but it didn’t turn out the way that he thought it would. He seemed to have reached his groove when he drained a three point basket in the corner with 8:55 remaining in the fourth quarter to bring the Cavs to within one point at 78-77. After he nailed the shot, he looked down at a falling Michael Beasley as well as the Heat’s bench as if he was telling them to “get like me!”
James finished the night with 38 buckets, 2 boards, 7 dimes, and 2 beats (…including a nasty one on The Flash).
After losing this game, LeBron’s professionl record has fell to 0-3 on his birthday including a loss while he was in high school.
You would cry too if it happened to you!
The King made Dwyane Wade look rather normal as he took the challenge of guarding him throughout most of the game. Wade finished the game with ONLY 21 points (…he’s leading the league with 28.9 points per game people) on 7-23 shooting. He did hand out 12 dimes though and pinned James’ shot off the glass early in the third quarter.
When Wade ran out on the King in the fourth quarter, he just calmly nailed three point bomb all in his grill at the 2:27. I could really see that LeBron was trying to outduel Dwyane because he was making it a point to go at him.
The one possession that sticks out in my the most is when Dwyane Wade went up for a dunk over the King, and he came out of nowhere and batted it out of the hoop even though he was called for a foul. It was just the “princibality” (…as Big Worm would say).
But in the end, I’m sure The King was not happy with his birthday present. It was his party though, so I’m sure he’ll cry if he wants too.
Give the man a break if he decides to let go a few tears…You would cry too if it happened to you!
The James Gang will pick back up on their action next year when they face the Chicago Bulls on Jan. 2 at The Q.
