Mon May 11, 2009 - Game 4 Cleveland @ Atlanta 7:00 pm EDT TNT (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/preview?gid=2009051101)




When LeBron James(notes) has one of those nights, everyone else turns into fans.

His teammates? Yep. Even his coach.

“I try as much as possible,” Cleveland’s Mike Brown said Sunday, “to stay out of the way.”

With one of his best performances ever, James carried the Cavaliers to the brink of another playoff sweep. The Atlanta Hawks sure know what they’re up against, having watched their most inspired showing of the series turned into just another loss by the MVP’s 47 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.

“Right now, he’s playing at such a high level,” said Hawks coach Mike Woodson, sounding a bit disheartened as his team heads into Game 4 Monday night. “Man, it’s crazy how good he’s playing. It really is.”

James has that look Michael Jordan used to bring out at playoff time, a steely eyed determination to win a championship no matter what’s in the way. If that means taking every big shot, so be it. If that means turning the game into me against them, well, that’s the way it has to be.

I hope the Kobephile realize its all in jest, I love Kobe but this corollary is too good not to use. MJB said this series would remind him of the old Knick-Bulls series, he even mentioned the X-Man outplaying Pippen or something. I just found the retrocomparisons nostalgic.

Cavs had a bad first quarter but responded with a 14-4 run to start the second and erase some of my concern.

Congrats to Hawks on a great season.

Time for the Cavs to rest and await Orlando/Boston now.

Rehabilitating Kobephiles, Training Laker fans.. that's what it's all about. :D

Except JB makes a lot of weird comparisons.. there's one in the Bull's forum comparing the modern day Bull's to the 90's Knicks. I don't see where that's coming from.
