Damn.  I'm sick and tired of seeing LeBron in the finals every single year.  Damn.  There's a reason he's the king.

I feel the opposite. I fully understand why some root against LeBron. I look at his career in a historical sense. He has now appeared in 8 straight finals. Bill Russell leads with 10. The difference is Russell had several other HOF'ers on those Celtic teams to help him along the way. LeBron has brought teams to the finals that would have been in the lottery if he wasn't on the team. Jordan probably would have went to 8 straight if he hadn't taken a 2 year baseball sabbatical in 94-95. Like Russell,he had more help than LeBron. Pippin,Rodman,and Horace Grant were forces up front. Paxton and Kerr could hit the 3 point shot if needed.

Houston built a new city tonight with all those bricks from 3. What was it 27 in a row missed from behind the arc? Also James Harden continues to disappear in big playoff games. I feel bad for Clint Capela. He played his ass off tonight.

This is why I'm not in favor of building an offense that relies on hitting over 40% on 3 point shots. Imo, it's the NFL  equivalent of the all out passing attack while ignoring the run. When it clicks, it's a thing of beauty. When it doesn't we have games like these. Boston couldn't hit the 3 against Cleveland either. What were they 2-21?. I'm a fan of a 99% slam dunk. I'll always believe games are won and lost in the paint if the officiating is fair. I grew up on the NBA in the mid 70's to late 80's. The Showtime Lakers and the Blue Collar Celtics could      hit a 3 when needed, but it wasn't their base offense. Between the both, they won 8 titles in a 9 year span. They won with crisp passing to the open or mismatched man inside. Give me 70% 2 point shots over 40% 3 point shots 7 days a week. During the course of a entire game, inside scoring will beat outside scoring a majority of the time.
