Siempre lo supe / I aways knew it | ESP-ENG
SIEMPRE LO SUPE / I ALWAYS KNEW IT
In this opportunity I do not come to talk about any result or any statistic regarding these NBA conference finals, rather I want to make a mention to a player that for many is the best in recent times, for others not, but we must emphasize that his talent is imminent and has no discussion, although he has failed in many seasons in search of a championship we must give him the merits to what has been his entire career in this sport and in this league, However, I think that his destiny could have been different and he has been involved in a world that the truth is that I do not know if it is his style or it was just the circumstance of the high level sports moment that made him fail and not reach more with respect to his capabilities, I am talking about LeBron James, who after his performance on Saturday against the Nuggets, I think he has missed a new season, one more, where he could have reached a victory on his way to the championship.
MUCHO TALENTO / A LOT OF TALENT
The series against the Nuggets is not over yet, yes, but it is 0-3 down, a disadvantage for the Lakers, led by LeBron, that will be difficult to overcome, if we take into account that no team in the history of this league has overcome such a deficit, but he has the talent to do it? of course, but in a sport where everything is managed as a team, things do not work if all your pieces do not fit together, and no matter how many attributes he has, he cannot overcome such adversity on his own.
Talent no, a super talent that not many have seen, and despite his age, has maintained the level, having presentations of more than 40 minutes per game, something that can only be done by someone who is made for this, his abilities have always led him to a point that he is almost always present at the peak moments in their respective teams, creating the possibility of breaking both personal and group statistics that honestly I think, could have been better.
VARIAS OPORTUNIDADES / VARIOUS OPPORTUNITIES
All that talent that we know he has, has led him to be in many conference finals as well as in the league, he knew how to use it very well individually and as a group, which always put him in the top for many years and with the different teams in which he was, I believe that the opportunities that he has generated for himself and his respective quintets which he represented, I have not seen anyone else do it, having a real chance in almost all of them, that if such successes had been achieved, we would be talking about a legend in terms of group accounting trophies.
We can understand that not all the time and every season you can win, but I think that as far as James always got, if he could have done it, creating a debate because he never achieved it, for example LeBron in his time reached 8 NBA Finals in a row, winning of course the ones that corresponded to win in terms of performance; if maybe not in all of them he was the favorite, he and his team, but they are instances in which it is very difficult to reach, and more so in such a consecutive way, being able to say that, a whole James dynasty was generated.
PUDO HABER SIDO MEJOR / COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER
Of course he does, you know why? because he is a player who tries to show off a lot in his performances, at the time it worked for him but as well as it gave him results, that made him fail or miss real opportunities to achieve a conquest, being this a factor which to this day brings him with him, I think and believe that if he concentrates more on achieving the ultimate goal which are the points or the group victory, with that talent, as I said at the beginning, we would be talking about not only a legend, but an effective player with many championship rings achieved.
Let's take a more recent example, in this conference finals against the Nuggets, in the first game, he had the opportunity to tie the game, after he and his team (the Lakers), managed to shorten a deficit of up to 23 points, having the real chance in a three-point shot, or to make another move, relying on his other teammates, choosing this one, The most difficult shot that was the basket from long distance, to finally fail, or in the second game, where in a play being completely alone, attacking the hoop, he slipped the ball, trying to nail it aggressively, are things or details that have accompanied him throughout his career that have been able to help him in case of not making those shows to reach 3 more titles of the 4 that he currently owns.
HASTA LA PRÓXIMA / SEE YOU NEXT TIME
