There's a couple of really good articles on LeBron and two of his iconic games (and what led up to them) up on The Undefeated:

That play by LeBron was so absurd. That shouldn't be legal to cover that much ground in that few steps

How good was Michael Jordan that he's so head-and-shoulders better than LeBron? Can't even fathom it.

 

 

@GDixon410 31s32 seconds ago

Feels I'm watching peak LeBron. At 32 years old. With all of his mileage. Which is utterly ridiculous.

Westbrook, Harden, Kawhi all terrific players ... but LeBron still best player on the planet. Paced himself...

Letting Kelly Olynyk try to guard LeBron 1-on-1 is not an optimal strategy for Boston if they want to, you know, beat LeBron.

@BillSimmons

This is embarrassing by the Celts. It's like the entire team has the yips. All open shots and close-range shots and they're gakking them.

 

@AndyGlockner 3m3 minutes ago

It's like the entire team is way worse than LeBron.

This is insane. Biggest playoff halftime lead ever.

I wouldn't say he's head and shoulders better. To be honest, prime Bron vs Prime Jordan, I wouldn't put money on it either way one on one. Be one hell of a game though.

Isaiah Thomas out the rest of the series with his hip issue.

A white flag should be raised, and the Cavs shouldn't have to play Games 3 and 4.

Completely shocking that Boston wins this game. Down 21, having gotten destroyed the first 2 games and without their best player? Crazy.

The Brad Stevens effect. Stopped paying attention because with the lead Cleveland had, and the circumstances, I thought the game was in the bag for the Cavs.

Cleveland just doesn't want as many days off between series this time.

Shitty game for Lebron.

Smart with an uncharacteristically big offensive game.

Also, the C's D is much better without Thomas.

Yep. Imagine when Stevens gets to coach some legit talent, as opposed to a team comprised of very good 3rd and 4th options.
