Game 2 NBA Eastern Conference playoffs
Summary of Game Two
The second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs continued last night in Cleavland. Earlier in the night Lebron James received his MVP award. The fans were amped and ready for the great basketball game. These two heavy-weight contenders faced off last Saturday night leaving the Boston Celtics pride bruised after giving up a large lead late to King James and the rest of the Cleavland crew. Things seemed much different when the Boston Celtics led by Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen took the court at Quicken Loans arena. From the opening tip you could easily tell that this game was going to have a different tone. The Boston Celtics came out strong and held a lead that just couldn't be overcome. Even a late surge by Lebron James and Antwan Jameson couldn't catch up to the outrageous lead.
Thoughts on Lebron James
First and foremost, let me say that Lebron James is a fantastic basketball player. He plays even better when he's in the playoffs and the money is on the line. However, can he get a supporting cast around him to shoulder him to the NBA championship? It would not surprise me at all if Lebron James looks back on his time in Cleavland as the "KG in MN" years. Lets face it, it's pretty much the same situation. Two talented players that could take there teams to the playoffs only to watch their dreams crumble in the face of stiff competition. They were both straight out of high school. They both are loud and outspoken. And they both will have won championships after they left there first teams. KG with Boston and Lebron with ? . Lebron is amazing, phenomenal, and nothing short of crab step genius. He is not enough to help his struggling Cavaliers triumph over the proven Celtics.
