To score 44 points and have an entire section of NBA memes mocking you is probably something that can only happen to LeBron James, unable to pull the Cleveland Cavaliers to victory against the Golden State Warriors.

Some call it choking. Others might call it being exhausted and simply playing the wrong way against a better team that has a long list of playmakers. The Cavs made the Warriors look bad, but managed to mess up the leads they built throughout the game.

Besides the loss in a completely winnable game, the main concern now for the Cavaliers is how Kyrie Irving’s ankle will recover from his slip. He has three days to try and get ready for game 2. Without him, it’s going to be very difficult for the Cavs to actually do something in this series.

James didn’t choke. If it wasn’t for his 44 points (on 38 shots), the Cavs probably would have been out of the winnable situation very early on in the game. Too bad people are waiting for him to fall, and even in an incredible game of basketball from him, he gets to end up as the loser. Not just on the scoreboard, but in the minds of those who set the one.
