LeBron James

When the Heat held on in Game 5 last night, despite Joe Johnson‘s very real threat of forcing a Game 6, LeBron James — perhaps a bit prematurely — jumped on the scorers table, and pounded his chest as the normally too cool for school Miami crowd cheered him on.

It didn’t come to them exactly as planned or in the form they would have most preferred, but they got what they angled for and that was a shot at the champs. The Nets were constructed to compete against the Miami Heat, even acquiring noted Heat antagonists Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to join their cause.
