Oh, this wasn't how it was supposed to be? LeBron James wasn't theoretically capable of delivering a devastatingly effective performance in Game 6 at the TD Garden? Fuck all that. James finished with 45 points, 15, rebounds, and five assists, and the Heat won by 19 points. (The last player with such a stat line in the playoffs? Wilt.) The Celtics looked utterly outplayed all game long. Game 7 is Saturday night in Miami, going up against Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. Yeah, I wonder which game everyone will be watching.
Oh, and Skip Bayless said something. I'll just leave this here.
Did tonight prove LeBron is clutch? HECK, no.

UPDATE: And it appears some Celtics fan dumped a beer on LeBron as he headed back to the locker room. [obligatory GOOD JOB GOOD EFFORT joke here]
