The Miami Heat win, LeBron James can’t… No matter what he does (or doesn’t do) — LBJ will be criticized for it.
The Heat won game 2 to take a 2-0 series lead over the Boston Celtics, Lebron James finished with 34 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists. Yet, James’ decision for settling for an 18-foot jumper when he had 7 inches and 70 pounds on Rajon Rondo was heavily scrutinized.
Okay, I get it. James should have taken Rondo to the paint; he was successful at getting to the line all night. However, he can hit that shot, and it’s a shot I’ve seen others stars take and miss and lose the game and not get as much flack for it.
Rondo is much smaller but don’t forget he’s is a great defender and capable of picking James’ pocket. He has the best hands in the league. I thought James had a great look, it just didn’t go in.
Hey, at least he was the one taking the shot, right? Well, apparently the only reason he took it was because the game was tied and Miami had no shot of losing.
I think James deserves some credit here, not criticism. The guy can’t win. Even if the Miami Heat win the NBA Finals this year, and let’s say D-Wade gets MVP honors and James averages a double-double… the haters are still gonna hate.
They won’t stop until he wins, “Not one, not two, not three, not four…”
