LeBron James Remains Confident Because He’s the ‘Best Player in the World’

David Richard/USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James put together another superhuman effort on Sunday night, putting up 40 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Unfortunately, James is on the brink of falling to 2-4 in the Finals thanks to his Cleveland Cavaliers losing 104-91, despite his best efforts.

While James and the Cavaliers are in big trouble, he’s still confident in their ability to come back and win this series:

He ain’t wrong.

LeBron hasn’t been his usual efficient self this series, and throughout the entire playoffs, really. But it’s hard to be efficient when you’re basically the entire offense. He’s averaging 36.6 points, 12.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists while shooting 39.9 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from three. Remarkably, he’s only averaging 3.0 turnovers in the Finals despite handling the ball so much against an elite defense.

It’s looking highly unlikely that LeBron will drag this team to a title, but he’s not going to go down without a fight. His confidence almost makes me confident that the Cavaliers steal Game 6 and at least force this to a Game 7. That would be quite the feat.
