The Los Angeles Lakers have “The King” in LeBron James. The rest of the NBA does not!

While the sports world will be finding out every historical aspect of that woman heckler since the time she was born, there was a game that LeBron James played in. Again, it’s shocking that people tend to inspire certain individuals that are all-time greats at their craft thinking they are making a negative impact is laughable. You would have thought the Cleveland performance would have gotten that lady to be quiet in her seat but…oh well.

LeBron James finished the night with 21 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals and a block. But that wasn’t the “on court” story here by a long shot. Again it was about when the production happened in crunch time.

During the Detroit game, Lake Show Life Lessons criticized LeBron for letting go of the rope in the second half.

"People look at the final score and would debate this statement. But those people probably missed the part when the game was close at 88-87. That’s winning time and when LeBron should earn the massive paycheck."

Since then, LeBron has been the ultimate closer. He orchestrated the Lakers offense to near perfection leading the comeback against the Boston Celtics.

Then LeBron closed out this game out scoring 12 points of his 21 points in the final quarter and the Lakers last nine points.

It was this play right here that basically turned the game around and got LeBron started.

LeBron went around the back and fired a perfect pass to Kyle Kuzma for the 3 pointer in the left corner. Folks, that’s not some rookie that is star struck. That’s Danilo Gallinari, a NBA veteran of over a decade.

In winning time of this game, LeBron gave the NBA world a small reminder of who is  the King and who isn’t.

dark. Next. Threat or don't fret about other top contenders
