So... let me get this straight. We're blasting MKG and calling him a bust who has met his ceiling, and can't play defense... we're saying these things because Lebron James, arguably the best player to ever play the game, scored 61 points? Did you see people say that Reggie Miller was a terrible defender because Michael Jordan dropped 50+? Let's cut the kid some slack. He's what... 19 freaking years old?? To say he has reached his full potential shows that some of you know absolutely nothing about basketball.
Many of those points Lebron scored were well defended by MKG. It was just one of those nights where the best player in the NBA couldn't be stopped. I don't care if you put Charles Barkley & Paul George on him. He was going to get his.
That said... I don't want to see Miami in the 1st round. I don't know how many folks on here reasonably expect the Bobcats to win their 1st round playoff series... it's not likely. But damn it, it's fun to think about the NBA playoffs potentially returning to Charlotte!! '08 was an amazing year, and even though we got swept, it was the first time in a long time that Charlotte embraced the team.
