The Celtics looked on their heels a couple of times, but in the end role players like PJ Brown and Eddie House along with 41 from Paul Pierce won it for Boston. Lebron has been criticized in years past for taking jumpers at the end of games rather than driving to the rim, but this Playoffs showed you why James probably should be taking those jumpers. It's certainly a Catch 22 for one of the NBA's most dominating players, but in the end those are shots he has to make to be considered one of the greats.
Also, can a ref maybe look at Lebron's feet every so often? The guy takes upwards of four steps at times on his way to the basket. Oh wait, according to Celtics Blog there's a new NBA rule.....
I've figured out why Lebron is so good. Article 6.54 of the NBA rule book: "Any player named Lebron is allowed four steps on any drive to the hoop. Such named player is also allowed to throw the opposition out of bounds after they out hustle you down the court to make a layup. Further the call of palming or carry shall not apply to this player."1st Half Thoughts (Celtics Blog)
