LeBron James is still a Superhero, he’s just no longer Superman.
Following a 113-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns in game-6 of their opening round playoff series, the Lakers became the 6th team in NBA history to win a title one year and bow out in the first round the next.
For LeBron, it’s his first ever opening round playoff series loss. He’s now 14-1.
From the point Lakers center Anthony Davis hurt his groin in game-4, the Suns obliterated the Lakers.
Consider this: The Lakers – with LeBron and minus Davis – lost by 30 in game-5 and never led in game-6 on their home floor.
For nearly two decades we’ve watched James – on teams with varying degrees of talent – rise above everything and everyone to earn series win after series win. Title after title.
Today, James is Batman. A superhero in desperate need of a “Robin” to achieve championship dreams.
