    Default Tonight Lebron faced more pressure than any athlete in the history of modern sports

    And I am not joking.

    Twitter + SportsCenter + ESPN.COM and today's media, along with the fact that Lebron is simply a cartoon like villain in the media today equals pressure that has never been seen before.


    And Lebron responded like a champ.



    And I said modern sports because I guess back in the day, a Gladiator or bull fighter or something might have faced death in their "sport". And that's kind of pressure packed if you ask me.

    i agree that this game was one of the most important games in his career. he just needs to keep this mentality and attitude up if he wants to win a chip

    The pressure isn't actually physically there.

    It's only there if you think it is, so you don't know how much pressure he was actually under.

    But it was a really important game and he played very well!

    Its a Game 6. Of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    This is not the biggest game of his career. Game 7 won't be either. He did not face tons of pressure tonight.

    he faced more pressure in several of the games in the finals

    nonetheless, epic performance from Bron, coming up huge is a career shaping game

    My first reaction was to call this overreaction thread of the night #1, but I really can't think of any athlete who has received more scrutiny playing in a bigger game in a long time.

    Boston needed 47 free throws to negate what he did tonight...

    Yeah he faced a lot of pressure, and responded very well - but most in modern era? Hell no. This isn't even the Finals, it's just the ECF. Miami just let Lebron do him in the first half while doing the dirty work like rebounding. Then all chipped in when Lebron came back down to Earth. Wade, Chalmers, Haslem all had very solid games.

    Try to name one, besides Lebron himself.

    I'll be waiting.

    Yeah say that. Because I don't think Athletes worry too much about twitter wars after a big loss.

    People crack on on Lebrons' hairline, but think about how much stress this guy is under lol.

    I bet most people would be bald by now, with the type of scrutiny this guy gets.
