LeBron James’ memory from Game 1 was actually not perfect
The Cleveland Cavaliers were taken to the woodshed by the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, as they took a 108-83 loss on Sunday. That setback did not stop James from tantalizing people, however. During the postgame presser, James was asked about the Celtics’ run in the fourth quarter before proceeding to tell the entire sequence off of his memory.
James’ retelling of what transpired during the Celtics 7-0 run in the final period, however, was not as perfect as most people would like to believe – at least not for Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy AKA El Presidente.
Nope the reason I’m blogging this is because of the way he described the play when he said the Cavs missed a shot. That description sums up everything you need to know about Lebron James. Check out the real footage. The play I’m talking about is at the 33 second mark.

What Portnoy was referring to was the obvious bad pass from LeBron that resulted in a Cavaliers’ turnover. Instead of saying he did lob a badly-positioned lob pass for Tristan Thompson, James described it as a missed shot. Portnoy went straight to his conclusion that that minor mistake from James’ summary was an evidence of the four-time MVP being a self-centered person.
Portnoy is a big Boston sports fan, so he’s going to revel at any misstep LeBron James would make in the series.
Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals is going to be held this Tuesday at TD Garden.
