I have a question. What does being an MVP mean to you? To me MVP’s are guys who want the ball with the game on the line. Guys who want the last shot. Guys who rise to the moment. Guys who are at their best when their teams need it the most. Guys like Jordan, Bird, Magic etc. All guys with as many MVPS as they got titles. And then there is the almighty Lebron James. A guy who has been told since the 6th grade that he is better than everybody else without ever having to prove it. A guy who has been handed everything on a silver platter. A guy who time and time again not only fails to rise to the occasion, but is too scared to even enter the arena. A coward in the truest sense of the word. I mean could you ever picture a true MVP doing what Bron Bron did down the stretch tonight? Just in case you missed it these were the last four Miami possessions in order
4th to last possession – He got his shot blocked to the rafters.
3rd to last possession – He missed 2 free throws that would have given his team the lead.
2nd to last possession – Played hot potato with Shane Battier until finally he was like “Hey Dwayne you take this…I want no part of this shit yo” .
Final Possession – Sat in the corner praying the ball wouldn’t get passed to him. I believe Marv Albert said they used him as a decoy at the end. The old 3 time MVP decoy play.
In other words it was vintage Lebron James. Just Bron Bron doing the damn thing the way only he can. The only question left is whether it is too late for Lebron to trade himself to OKC or something now that the Bostrich is hurt.
