Only people like Skip Bayless would have made it brutal for him. People with common sense realize Lebron was the sole reason the Heat even had a chance at the end. He carried them back from a double-digit 4th Quarter deficit, he hit a huge three with 30 seconds left that gave the Heat a chance for the game-tying shot, and then he hit the game-winning basket with 1:30 left in OT. He played 50 minutes in the most pressurized game of his career, so I think some turnovers and missed shots are excusable. Someone would have to be crazy to criticize Lebron after last night's performance, regardless whether they won or lost.
