Old talking points regarding LeBron James' game can be thrown out of the window. He's a two-time NBA champion and a guy you can depend on in clutch situations. Need proof? Look no further than last night's game against the Golden State Warriors, in which LeBron put the Heat on his back and carried them to victory over a tough opponent in the closing moments.
After a Stephen Curry 3-point play put the Warriors up 2 with 14 seconds left to play, James brought the ball back up the court without calling a timeout. With Andre Iguodala all over him, James created enough space with a step-back to drain a 27-foot three-pointer with just two-tenths of a second left to play. The reigning league MVP then did his signature high-step pose in front of a stunned Oracle crowd. Miami won the game 111-110.
In Oakland, James wore a silver-based PE colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier 7. The shoe featured a red cross-strap and black hits on the inner lining, Swoosh branding and outsole. Do you think it's unfortunate that LeBron isn't creating these kinds of memories in the LeBron 11?
