Le Shot Will Never Replace The Shot
LeBron James’ buzzer beating three pointer in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals will not make Cleveland fans forget about "The Shot."
Now that Cleveland has been eliminated, we can take a definitive look back at the magnitude of LeBron James’ game winner back in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The result is a rather indifferent, not much.
Sure, I’m an M.J. homer. I’ll admit it. But I can back this statement up. First of all, Jordan’s shot won something more than a game. It won a series. In a single play, he carried the Chicago Bulls to the next round of the playoffs, which at the time, was something Chicago was not very familiar with. As a six seed in the playoffs that year, Jordan took his Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals. The last time the Bulls had reached the Eastern Finals. 1975.
