CLEVELAND — My big brother used to do this to me on our backyard court. He was six years older and a hundred times better than me. Playing one-on-one, he’d get lazy and let me get close as I worked myself into a lather. Then he would swoop in and crush me at the finish. He won every time.At least he avoids pissing off more Cleveland fans during the rest of the column, so he's got that going for him.
This is the NBA playoffs and LeBron James is the big brother. Against the upstart Celtics, King James wins every time. Tuesday night at the Q it was Cleveland 99, Boston 91 as the James Gang took a 2-0 series lead in this predictable best-of-seven first-round series.
