this little feelgood moment from the weekend certainly notched him up in my book.
I also said that simply winning the title, was going to get 'Bron over the hump with the skeptical basketball public.
Is LeBron suddenly a "great guy" or my "favorite player ever?"
But this was not phony enthusiasm. Look at that picture above.
That's simple joy.
Joy in the moment, of a fat guy computer technician, hitting an incredible - and perfect - half court bomb, for 75 large.
It makes sports fun again, amid all the nonsense. And it makes King James just a little bit more like the people's champ.
