King James , the Unselfish

There's a little mini-controversy brewing concerning LeBron passing up the final shot of tonight's first game in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Poor Guy.

Classic case of damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

Cleveland was on the road, smart money is to go for the win there.

If he takes the shot, and misses no doubt people would be talking about how open Donyell Marshall was, and how LeBron was being selfish, by forcing a shot.

When it's all said and done I think LeBron made the right move.

Donyell had the open three....might as well go for the win there.

On the other hand, watching the slow motion replay it did look like he had a clear shot at the basket.

But the truth is, life doesn't move at slow motion.

Would Kobe, or Carmelo, maybe D-Wade take that same shot given the opportunity?

No Doubt.

But that's just not LeBron's style.

I've said it before, I think LeBron is the Ultimate team player.

He's like a humble and shy Scottie Pippen. He's Magic with Jordan's Hops.

Team him up with a superstar scorer, and we're talking dynasty.

People keep waiting, and wanting him to be go out and score 80 points, but I don't think it's in's not part of his DNA.

He rather make the assist for the win, then be the hero.

To tell the truth, it's incredibly refreshing.

Especially in this day and age.

I just hope that one play doesn't affect his play for the rest of the series.

Because technically, the Cavs were in it till the end....and LeBron only scored 10 points the entire game, which I guarantee won't happen unsettling thought for Pistons fans.
