LeBron James is running through the Eastern Conference like it’s an AAU tournament and he is the only person who has completed puberty. The man is flat out ruthless and is on a mission to claim his 4th NBA title.
His numbers throughout the postseason thus far are flat out gross. The king is logging in 42 minutes per game and is averaging 34.8 points per game throughout the nine game winning streak. He is attempting about six shots from three point land and is sitting at 43% from beyond the arc. James is averaging nine rebounds per game and seven assists. Just remarkable.
Beyond the numbers though, it’s his overall approach and mentality that just seems to be….terrifying. The monster is in full savage mode and is clearly locked into a relentless pursuit for another ring.
Partnered up with Kevin Love in the post game conference after game one’s 117-104 win over the Boston Celtics, LeBron answered every question thrown his way with absolute precision and a no nonsense focus.
LeBron was decked out in all black and was rocking a hat with the brim low. We could barely see his eyes. He planned it that way. He’s sending a message to all of us and that message is that he is officially in full savage mode.
LeBron explained to one media member that his goal on every single possession is to make the absolute best possible decision/move. Basically, LeBron has the knowledge of a brilliant coach and the body of a divine athlete. When he decides to maximize both his mental strength and physical strength, that is when full savage mode is activated.
It is abundantly clear that nothing will fully satisfy the man until he achieves his goal of a championship.
LeBron and his Cavs will breeze through the Celtics and inevitably clash with the Golden State Warriors once again. The Warriors may have a super team but with that the case they become dependent on each other.
LeBron is in total control and is completely independent at this point in his career. He decides what happens on each possession. He has already decided that he will not lose this postseason.
