King James Unscrews the Pistons of Detroit

At 22 years old, he doesn’t belong in the NBA Finals. Not yet. But he’s done it. Down 0-2 last week, they won the next two games at home in Cleveland. Then, LeBron James exploded in Detroit two days ago with 48 points–including 29 of his team’s last 30 points–to win Game 5. And now, just a few hours ago, I caught the last quarter when Cleveland destroyed the engines of Detroit to win Game 6 and enter the NBA Finals. What a win! The question now is: Who’s going to root for the Spurs?

  1. What an amazing come back from 0 – 2 in the best of 7 games to win the Eastern Final! This is an exciting year for Ohioans. Watch for our Teams this year: Cavaliers (NBA), Indians (MLBA) and Ohio State Buckeyes (NCAA). Go O-H-I-O.

  2. You’re right, Tito Luny: Amazing victory for your state. Hope LeBron dribbles with his team all the way to the Championship. I’ll also keep an eye on your other teams. Good luck in the Finals!

  3. It was a great comeback, and the way they did it was the cherry on top.

    P.S Your fellow collumnist Homer Sayson roots for Spurs ^^

  4. Yup… Homer’s rooting for the Spurs. I think he wants LeBron and the Cavs to win but knows that they can’t beat the Spurs. Still, it’s hard to root for those boring Spurs.
