Enough is enough sometimes, and although the memes and jokes at the expense of LeBron James and the Miami Heat (and also a little bit Kobe Bryant) while praising the San Antonio Spurs and especially Kawhi Leonard have been great, it’s time to retire them for at least a few days so we can get on with our lives.
But before that happens, here comes one more long list of memes that show LeBron James as an overrated player (although we don’t believe that) who will never be like Michael Jordan and tends to choke in the fourth quarters.
Kawhi Leonard didn’t stop LeBron James. He just slowed him down, which in combination with the poor play from the Miami Heat supporting cast turned out to be lethal for the Heat’s three-peat efforts. It was lethal in terms of us having a close series, as the Heat didn’t reach 90 points once in the final three games.
Leonard is one of the most surprising Finals MVP in history. It’ll be interesting to see if he does propel himself to an elite level in the coming years – a bit closer to LeBron James and Kevin Durant, or was this just more proof of how good of a coach Gregg Popovich is, and what a nurturing system the San Antonio Spurs have.
