The point I am making is it's almost two months later and people are still posting things like "dont ask lebron for a dollar or he wont give you the 4th quarter" etc. when the 4th quarter was when he dominated during the playoffs except for the Finals. It's like they remember the Finals vividly, and have amnesia about the Celtics and the Bulls. I agree he played awful in the Finals, but I think people need to acknowledge that it was that series solely he performed that way and it doesn't reflect his game as a whole.
