The NBA, Where LeBron is Not Human Happens

As if it wasn't already established, now all questions have been dismissed: LeBron James is not human. Can't be. Humans cannot do what this freak of nature of does.

Last night, with his Cavaliers facing elimination, LeBron goes all triple-doubley on the Magic, putting up 37 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists to lead Cleveland to a 112-102 win and force a game 6. Look at that again: 37-14-12. Add in a steal and block for good measure and 15-19 from the foul line, and it just boggles the mind.

Yes, Mo Williams finally showed up (24 points on 7-14 from the field, 6-9 from three), and the Cavs got double digits out of Delonte (13), Ilgauskas (16) and Gibson (11), but once again, it was really LeBron and everyone else.

Check it out:

With the Magic just a win away from reaching the finals, I sort of left the Cavs for dead, thinking, with the way the series has gone and how much success the Magic had against the LeBrons in the regular season, Cleveland couldn't win three straight. I should have known better. With LeBron, anything is possible, as he showed last night and has shown all season.

Now, I still don't necessarily think the Cavs will pull this thing out, but I'm definitely not counting them out. Not with the way the greatest basketball player in the world is playing right now. Seriously, I just don't think he's human.

BallHype: hype it up!
