LeBron James who was, once again in a fairly big playoff game, missing in action. Bizarrely missing in action, and it was shades of what happened against the Boston Celtics in 2010 in his last go-round with Cleveland the first time, and shades of what happened in the Finals against Dallas - when LeBron just inexplicably shrank and disengaged  and didn’t even want to touch the ball through the last quarter and a half of the game. He did not make a basket, LeBron James, for the last 19:12 of the game. He made a free throw.

“I’m going to say it again. On occasion, LeBron James can be as mentally fragile a superstar as we have ever seen.Inexplicably, weirdly, oddly… he just went completely passive last night.

...he can be very fragile psychologically, emotionally. I think we saw that last night.
