big time--he looked like a whipped puppy last night
There must have been 5 or 6 plays where Lebron stopped to jaw at the refs while the Celtics took the ball up the court and scored. Either gassed or really dumb non-defense.
If he is gassed (for sure), who is going to blame him? The dude has probably played the equivalent of 18-19 seasons between preseason, regular season, playoffs and the Olympics since he's become a pro. Not to mention he gets more of the "Hack A Shaq" rules when it comes to fouls than the Jordan Rules so there's even more wear & tear. Also add in he's pretty much a one man band with limited to no support. The fact that he can still do it at such a high level is amazing.
My comments on his being gassed are no slight on his excellence. It's his damn supporting group that won't give him a break so he can be more effective. At some point, something's got to give.
