Now, I understand that no one is perfect. And even legendary athletes makes physical mistakes on their respective fields of play. But this was a huge play. LeBron had a wide-open dunk with his team leading by 8 points. After he botched the attempt…the Denver fans went nuts and the Nuggets grabbed the momentum…Denver ended up winning the game and going up two games to none.
In addition to the failed dunk, LeBron also missed easy, point-black layups that he almost never misses. He also was 0 for 6 from three-point range and ultimately looked human for possibly the first time in his career as his team fell to defeat. I don’t know if this is the absolute end of LeBron as an elite player…but it is worth seeing if the 38-year-old James can still dominate like the legend he is. I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents.
