LeBron James of the Miami Heat is just on another level right now. Love him or hate him if you must, but make sure you remember to respect how well he is playing right now. He helped lead an evisceration of the Boston Celtics Monday night and even got into it a bit with Kevin Garnett. Twice the two exchanged words with the final confrontation ending with LeBron James laughing in KG’s face.
Personally, I love this type of stuff from LeBron James. Garnett has a history of trying to punk guys out and has a lot worse bark than he does bite. The way things are going, you can not mess with LeBron. He is totally dominating the playoffs. When the Chicago Bulls were smacked by the injury gods, LeBron and company got a perfect window to the Finals. They have not slept on that opportunity.
I expect more of this behavior from both teams as the series goes on. They do not like each other and if you can not stop LeBron James, I bet Boston makes him think twice with a hard foul or two. As long as they keep it clean, it should help amp up the games.
You may think LeBron James is being immature here, but look who is on the receiving end. It is a guy who has made a name for punking out guards and European players. You can’t handle LeBron James, KG. Your bark can’t scare the King.
