LeBron James is trying to do the improbable and bring a championship to Cleveland. The task he was handed as an 18-year-old phenom out of high school — and then discarded for what he called a college experience with the Miami Heat — is so close to completion that all of Ohio can taste it.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are tied with the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals 2-2, and James has erupted for 35.8 points, 12 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game in the finals, but he’s shot 38.8 percent from the field.
Even though his shooting percentage isn’t where he’d like it to be, James shot the lights out in a contest against Cavs shooting consultant Damon Jones on Saturday. And he did it without removing his backpack.
Sometimes “the King” just lets it fly, and he can’t miss.
Maybe James will take that shooting touch into game five because he hasn’t exactly been efficient with his gigantic scoring numbers. If he starts to knock down the three even slightly more consistent than he has been, the Warriors could be in trouble.
