LeBron James had a 20-point double-double with 10 rebounds and five assists against the Raptors.
Let’s ignore those stats for a moment.
When watching LeBron play, there are some lulls that are completely obvious. The 17-year vet uses his energy — let’s say — judiciously.
There are times where he’s not playing as hard as he could. It’s nothing new for James, he’s had his share of low-effort plays in the past. But he just turns it on so quick.
Here’s an example of how quickly he can go from 0-to-100.
James’ dominance has been covered plenty. Playoff LeBron is just another animal completely, and we haven’t seen it in Orlando yet. If Laker fans are looking for some optimism after a tough loss, take solace in the fact that chase-down block and tomahawk dunk Lebron is just six games away.
