Damn. (And a Gripe.)

This clip, from LBJ’s 55-point eruption last week against Milwaukee, will melt your face. We all know that LeBron was created by the basketball gods to obliterate the ceiling of hoops greatness.

The problem is he’s, well,  LeBron.  Which leads me back to my initial reaction: Damn.
