Default Re-watched the Final. Lebron really fked up in Game 1 on last possession

Here's why :

If he wasn't a choker, he would've sealed the game to prevent it from going to Overtime where Kyrie got injured

Having Kyrie playing throughout the Final, Cavs would've had a really good chance at beating GSW. Fken Lebron

Let's be clear about one thing... Kyrie was injured long before that overtime period. The Cavs and the doctors can cover their asses all day by maintaining that the kneecap fracture was completely unrelated to Kyrie's curious "tendinitis" diagnosis -- which only seemed to get worse and worse unlike most cases of tendinitis -- but to anyone who put 2+2 together, the fractured kneecap was the problem all along.

It's just that, in that overtime period when Klay and Irving banged knees, it fractured to the point where the crack was visible on an x-ray.

Kyrie had been playing somewhere between 50-80% really since the second game against Chicago. Unfortunately, that fracture was going to worsen at some point, whether it was Game 1 against Golden State or in the preseason this coming year if not properly diagnosed. It was just a matter of time.


As for the final play... I thought all season that Kyrie should get the call on those type of last second plays, because he is so good in isolation situations. He was second in the NBA in 2015 behind only James Harden in efficiency in isolation plays, and that's only because Harden so frequently draws whistles... the kind of whistles you're unlikely to get in the final seconds. Otherwise, he was the most efficient.

But, considering Kyrie's limitations due to injury, allowing LeBron to take the shot made sense. I hated his decision to drain the clock and hoist up a long-range, low percentage jumper, but hey...

Water under the bridge now.
