Epic LeBron

So, LeBron goes 48-9-7 tonight, scores the last 25 Cavs points (and 29 of final 30), and etches his name in the history books. It was a performance that demands gushing blog posts, hyperbole, and even a few Wooden-turned-Walton quotes (like "doing your best when your best is needed!").

Unfortunately, I was on a flight to Denver and missed the game, so will have to hold off on comments until I get back on Sunday and watch it on TiVo. Fortunately the very nice Marriott I am staying at has free Internet access, so I'm able to at least post about how I'm not going to post.

I can tell you what publicity hound is smarting right now though. Here's a hint: he has worn two different numbers the past two years and has a propensity to talk out of both sides of his mouth.

Who would have thought that something on the basketball court would rise above the Kobe and NBA Draft chatter?

Oh, and how are all the LeBron Bashers (numbering in the thousands just last week) doing right about now? Crickets.

(Last thing: I think the Suns just assured themselves a title in the Nash era today by inking Steve Kerr as their new GM. He will make the moves to get this done and it will keep D'Antoni from trading all of their draft picks to sign someone like Marcus Banks again.)

Steve Kerr is a respected TV commentator.
Matt Millen was a respected commentator and look how well he worked out for the Detroit Lions.
I just hope that Kerr doesn't do too much damage to the Suns before he's fired

I am a witness.

Watching LeBron single-handedly beat such a "defensive powerhouse" on their court was amazing.

And he's 22.

Scary.

I too have merely heard of the greatness of Lebron tonight. I'm downloading the game (illegally and defiantly) as I type this.

I want to be a witness.

Count me in as a witness.

I'm also glad to see Kobe get pushed out of the spotlight. I think you're right... it's got to be killing him.
