LeBron James Makes Dillon Brooks Look Small With Game-Winning Basket: Watch
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers were not looking so good at the beginning of the NBA season. With Russell Westbrook on the roster, the team had absolutely no chemistry. However, they have since added a ton of great pieces that gel well with LeBron and Anthony Davis. Although it is not going to be an easy road as a seventh seed, the Lakers are looking like a team that can upset the Western Conference. Overall, this would be fantastic for the NBA, as LeBron remains the most popular player.
In the first round against the Memphis Grizzlies, there has been a lot of trash talk. This is especially true when it comes to Dillon Brooks. The hated Grizzlies star has called LeBron “old” on numerous occasions. Although, since that time, LeBron James has had his number. Call it karmic justice, but there is no doubt that Brooks probably regrets those comments. That was especially true last night, as the Lakers and Grizzlies found themselves in overtime in Game 4. With a 3-1 series lead on the line with under one minute to play, LeBron scored over Dillon Brooks, ensuring the victory.
LeBron James Gets One Over Dillon Brooks
In the video clip above, it is very clear that Brooks was simply no match for LeBron and his incredible athleticism. Even at the age of 38, James can still notch 22 points and 20 rebounds in a game. It is phenomenal to watch, and we hope to see more of this throughout the playoffs. However, LeBron James and his teammates will need to go to Memphis for Game 5. It will not be an easy match to win, although James and his teammates have been in this spot before. Perhaps the experience will prove to be too much for the Grizz to handle.
No matter what, it is clear that this has been one of the best series of the entire playoffs thus far. It is only going to get better from here on out, especially with both of these teams staring down either the Sacramento Kings or the Golden State Warriors. Let us know who you think is going to end up winning this series, in the comments section below.
