The King's Resurgence

My latest is at Outside the Beltway. Excerpt:
Brian Windhorst of the Akron-Beacon Journal, probably the most knowledgeable writer in the country about Lebron James, has an excellent article on ESPN discussing Lebron's sudden resurgence over the past month. In the article, he questions what exactly it was that 'set Lebron off':
So then perhaps there was a column that proved to be the final straw. Maybe it was a private call from Wade or another peer. Maybe James' bed at a posh Beverly Hills hotel was particularly comfortable. Whatever it was, something cracked Feb. 15 in Los Angeles.
I think it was none of those. On February 14th, the night before that game, I called up my brother. "I think that tonight was the best thing that could have happened to the Cavs", I remember saying. The Cavs had just lost 99-98 to the Jazz - in Utah - on a terrible non-call at the last second when Sasha Pavlovic was clearly fouled at midcourt as he was running down the court to take what would have been the game-winning shot. They were furious, and had no problems stating as much to anyone who would listen.
