LeBron James, best playoff performance ever?
48 points (including the last 25 scored by his team)

I did watch some of this. I may not have been the best of all time but it was still pretty amazing.

Considering it was Game 5 of the East finals, its up there. I equate it to what Reggie Miller did to the Knicks in the exact same spot, Game 5, 1994 conference finals on the road, 2-2, took over the 4th quarter. LeBron's carried into OT and was more clutch, Reggie put his game away long before it came down to the end.
The nice thing is I can finally root for the guy going off on a run like that. That's how long my team has been out of the playoffs, in the past these things were always happening to my Knicks, whether it was Reggie, Jordan, Bird, Dr J, whomever.

Lebron has finally shown a little of what Kobe does night in and night out. If he keeps this up, he will definitely be one of the more exciting players to watch. In the meantime, I still find Lebron stale in general and he's only getting all the attention because the league is shoving him down our throats.

Except LeBron did it in a pivotal game of the conference finals without the dominant big man of his generation opening things up for him. Also, he's getting attention now because he's on one of three teams left alive and playing the starring role in the first good series to take place in ages.
