The Oskar for the best performance in a Championship game goes to…….

The 2016 Oskar for the best performance by a leading “ACTOR”  in an NBA Finals series goes to LeBron James in “Broken Wrist”.    James wins for the umpteenth time in this category, as the great one won despite a strong performance by Anderson Varejao, for his performance in “No Game for Flopping.”  Critics loved James complete moaning and groaning during his performance while in a fetal position on the floor in the final minutes of game seven, then showing no problems in knocking down a game clenching free throw with the same wrist just a moment later.  We have seen some great acting jobs in the history of sports and James’s “Broken Wrist” is one for the ages.

In an article by “critic” Turtleboy” (found at http://turtleboysports.com/lebron-missed-every-shot-he-took-in-the-final-4-minutes-faked-an-injury-to-seem-tougher-and-embodied-why-millenials-are-such-weak-human-beings/):

Good for Bron-Bron for winning his third ring. What his teammates did was amazing. I just can’t get behind a guy who wins like this. Down by 3 with 10 seconds to go Bron-Bron had a chance to put the game away. He took the ball hard at Draymond Green and drew what was clearly a foul. That’s fine. But so was Bron-Bron.

Man, how did his wrist ever survive that routine fall? Turtleboy Jr. fell about as hard as that today and when he realized I wasn’t gonna give him the “are you OK” reaction, he just moved on to the next thing because he was fine. And so was LeBron.

But it was the way that he reacted to it that just cemented his status as a legendary dooshnozzle.

 

Give me a break. This is what a champion looks like to millennials. A drama queen who fakes an injury with a championship on the line so you’ll talk about how he battled through adversity. And make no doubt about it, he was 100% faking it. Literally a minute later he was on the line hitting the game icing free throw.

 

I feel bad for everyone under the age of 25 who didn’t get to grow up with Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. This is the guy they will remember as the defining player of their generation. A walking vagina who misses every shot he takes in the final four minutes of Game 7 of the NBA Finals, fakes an injury, and gets a ring for it.

P.S. The media’s reaction to LeBron’s fake wrist injury is the reason why he was rolling on the ground crying. Because he wanted them to say, “Oh my God, he just won the championship by hitting a free throw with a broken wrist. What a warrior!!!” And then they did.
