No Kyrie, No Love, No Problem for Lebron

The Cavs lost 2 of the better players in the NBA, 2/3rd of their big 3 and is currently beating a 63 win team by 19.

If the Hawks want to play the injury card, it seems the Cavs can play that card even more than the race card that Reverend Jesse Jackson plays. The Cavs didn’t have 2 of their big 3 on Friday, and they beat a team that won 63 games by 19 points.

Lebron and the Cavs are playing team basketball. The kind of basketball that wins championships. The ball is moving, the open man is shooting, and the Cavs are looking for the mismatch, see whoever Korver is guarding.

Get the brooms ready for the sweep, and the Cavs will be nice and rested for the Finals.

Lebron went for 30 and 12, and he dominated the game from tip to finish. He is at a perfect age, he hasn’t started to decline much physically and mentally he is like Hubie Brown.

For any talk on where Lebron stands as an all time great, he is embarrassing the best team in the Eastern Conference on their floor in the playoffs, and he is making it seem like a senior playing against 8th graders.

It is similar to Ali dancing around Liston, Jordan with the shoulder shrug vs Portland, or the ’85 Bears playing the Pats. Lebron is on a roll like butter, and on his way to his 5th NBA Finals in as many years.

For Lebron it is just another day in the office, no big celebration, no big tears when his team loses. He just shows up, does his job, talks to the press, does endorsements, and then goes home to enjoy his millions that will soon be billions.

He is a machine, or at times he appears to be a genetically made human being with superhuman athletic ability.

The Hawks are done, stick a fork in them, get the fat lady to sing, or photoshop them fishing, but it’s a wrap for their season.

Lebron and the Cavs are heading to the finals, and they will be the favorite over whoever comes out of the Western Conference Finals.

Game Notes:

At halftime, James has 17 points, four rebounds and four assists. Shumpert, J.R. Smith and James Jones have a total of 24 points on 8-for-13 shooting, including 6-for-8 from 3-point range. The Cavaliers lead 54-49.
