Having hit somewhat of a pre-All Star break slump, the Miami Heat traveled to Sacramento Saturday night. And while the rest of America had its eyes fixated on the NFL, best buddies Dwyane Wade and LeBron James went on a fast break. By now, we all know how this story ends. Just the normal lob from Wade where LeBron catches it for a reverse oop where his head nearly grazes the rim. Miami dominated from the opening tip walking over the Kings 128-99 led by Mario Chalmers’ 34 points, including 10 threes.
I like to think I’ve been overly-reserved in my LBJ coverage this year. For that, my people, I apologize and vow to change this effective immediately. You’re all welcome.
Bonus: Former Phoenix Sun and current Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson jokingly asked LeBron Friday night at a charity event to purchase the Kings in order to keep them in town. In which, James plays along responding with his own adaptation of the Kevin Hart joke. As we’re all aware, Bron is forever linked to the city where he played his first NBA game finishing with 25 points, nine assists, six rebounds and four steals. On second thought, KJ was probably half-joking. You know, like back in high school when you’d ask a girl, “You’re gonna let me come over after school, right?” Low risk, high reward.
Double Bonus: Like Seth Rosenthal mentioned, this is what happens when you’re up by more than 20 and get bored on the court. Ok, I’m done for real this time. Have a blessed Sunday, y’all.
