Make sure you take a moment to fully appreciate the fact that you are able to watch LeBron James play in the NBA. Make sure you take a moment to fully appreciate the fact that LeBron is playing his best ball in his 15th season in the league. On Wednesday, James reminded us that players like him don’t come around that often.
After the Toronto Raptors jumped ahead at halftime, tying a franchise record with 79 points in the first half, the Cleveland Cavaliers could have just thrown in the towel.
