Let us now praise LeBron James. Throughout the regular season much debate and discussion revolves around LeBron, and if he “still has it.” Will we ever learn?
Every time the playoffs roll around, LeBron James activates “Zero Dark Thirty-23” mode, which means he stops looking at any sort of social media or news. And that in and of itself isn’t all interesting — no one is missing LeBron’s Instagram posts. But LeBron in Zero Dark Thirty-23 mode is basically a different player than regular season LeBron — and usually a better one. Watching LeBron elevate his game in the postseason is a joy, and we should appreciate every game we get to watch him do it.
