The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone against all odds in their last two games against the Golden State Warriors. They managed to dig themselves out of a 3-1 hole, forcing a Game 7 in the process. With one final away game this series, LeBron James plans to treat this performance like any other.
“Listen, at the end of the day, I go out every single night and give everything I’ve got to the game,” said James. “The game has always given back to me. So I’m O.K.”
One would think this last game would send a shock to James' system. Fortunately for the Cavs, this insurmountable pressure only motivates him to perform at a more proficient level.
“The word everyone likes to use in sports is pressure,” continued James. “I don’t really get involved in it. But I guess in layman’s terms, it’s pressure. I think it’s an opportunity to do something special.”
Something special is sure to come regardless of who wins. The Cavs will be the first team to come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals while the Warriors will cap off their historic 73-9 with a championship, just as the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls did. Hopefully James' dominant efforts will earn him the reward he has worked so hard for all year.
