National Basketball Association community reacts to LeBron's Game 7 performance vs. Celtics

For somebody to go through this their first time and go through a full National Basketball Association season - he played, I think, pretty much every game - and to be in these pressure situations in the playoffs, his composure, making play after play and really just poised and ready for moments all year.

As his 2007 appearance stands alone, James is now running a hot streak of 8 straight Finals appearances, 4 straight each between his stints with the Cavs since 2015 and the Miami Heat from 2011-2014.

After Sunday night's game, James was greeted outside the Cavaliers locker room by none other than P.K. Subban, the Nashville Predators defenceman who used to play for the Canadiens.

Cleveland now await the result of the Western Conference Finals own Game 7 clash between Golden State and Houston.

The Cavaliers defeated the Celtics on Sunday, 87-79, in the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Finals. Both players have one flaw that tends to drive fans insane, that is also central to why they're such good players.

Losing to James without your two best players is nothing to hang your head over.

"And to come on the road where all the games have been lopsided, both home teams have pretty much been in great shape at home, and to come here in a hostile environment, Game 7, Eastern Conference finals, this and Game 7 of the NBA Finals in 2016, right there".

In this series, James has averaged 39 points per game at home, 27.7 per in the three games in Boston.

"We've been counted out for a long time this season", James said, referring to the Cavs' subpar regular season.

After the series loss, Celtics coach Brad Stevens was asked about defending the generational talent. Not only did he play all 48 minutes, but he dropped 35 points on 12-of-24 shooting and added 15 rebounds and nine assists.

Another said: "Our young guns got great postseason experience".

The Horford-Draymond comparison is a good one on another level too.

Getting run over by LeBron James: Priceless. The Las Vegas over/under on his point total for Game 7 had been 38, the highest of his career and the highest of any player ever in an elimination game.

Green's 3-pointer with 4:56 left in the third quarter put Cleveland up 53-51, the Cavs' first lead since the opening minutes. "That it's going to end in the finals is really incredible, it really is", forward Kyle Korver said in the Cavs' locker room on Sunday night. Cleveland had finished just fourth in the East, never developing the necessary cohesiveness required to be even a mediocre defensive team, let alone a championship-caliber one. "In my first year being able to compete against a player like him, and be a few shots away from beating him and his team and going to the championship, is something I will always remember".

"I know what I'm capable of doing, and I'm going to trust everything I put into it".
