LeBron James fends off J.O for a layup
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”

Can you see it America? Is this what you wanted?

A LeBron James hell bent on not just winning but dominating.

For so long people criticized James for not being clutch. For never winning a ring and always losing the big one. Well that’s all about to change with a royal coronation in June, if this Heat team continues to play as they have in Games 1 and 2.

When asked on how he felt after the game James stated, “I have no emotion right now, not getting too high or too low.” Just feels good “having options on the court, guys who can take over a game besides me. That takes a load off of you and it’s the vision I saw this summer.”

Now you have a situation in which James doesn’t need to single-handedly lead his team night in and night out in order to win. With Dwyane Wade being able to lead as he did in Game 1, it enables James to affect the game without having to dominate it.

Still on nights like today, it sure is sweet as a Heat fan to know that he can just seemingly put on a cape and convert into Superman.

LeBron is unlike any player before him, but now he has figured out that being the “Chosen One” doesn’t mean you have to be the only one every night. Why hasn’t there been more press about how well James has adapted to a team first role/mentality?

    As surprising it is for a perimeter team like the Heat, their control of the paint led them to that Game Two victory. They shot 14 more free throws and got 7 more blocks than the Celtics did last night. That means the C’s had to rely on outside shots, which they overwhelmingly missed (only 20 points from Allen and Pierce). LeBron took over by slashing to the bucket and playing tough defense down low. Check it out:
