In one sense you have to give LeBron James credit. He can’t win a championship as the leader of a team, because he’s not a killer like Micheal Jordan or Kobe Bryant. So not only did he go down to Miami to be a supporting player on Dwyane Wade’s team, he’s now embracing the role of being the clear #2 on this team.
For that reason, Miami looks pretty tough right now, and the nightmare scenario for Cleveland fans might play out this year with LeBron getting his ring. The Celtics look old, Chicago doesn’t look dominant and Rose has a bad ankle, and who knows what’s going on out west. Miami might actually have a pretty easy road to a championship.
We’ll see. Hopefully Boston will get its act together tonight on game 2.
That said, LeBron is a very tough player when he can play in a supporting role to a superstar like Wade, so the Heat look very tough at the moment.
