LeBron James doesn’t have a history of reliability when it comes to clutch moments in big games. With Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals ahead of us, will LeBron shine in the spotlight or will he crumble under the pressure?
Let’s take a look at history:
The first time LeBron played the San Antonio Spurs in the Finals he was 22 years old and his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates weren’t very reliable as they were swept in four games. Things are obviously different now, especially after Chris Bosh and Ray Allen rescued the Miami Heat in Game 6 on Tuesday night.
LeBron has been passive for a majority of this series as the likes of Boris Diaw and Kawhi Leonard have pretty much made him mortal in the Finals, but his teammates have rose to the occasion thus far and now they have a shot at a winner-take-all Game 7 for back-to-back titles. But LeBron is going to have to shine in this final contest if he hopes to add anything positive to that legacy he’s building.
So, what’s going to happen with LeBron in Game 7? We want to hear your predictions, so leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
