He didn't look like he was hurting, but LeBron James reportedly played through knee pain to help the Miami Heat win last night. The superstar has been performing on a whole new level this season (which didn't seem possible), and he has the Heat poised to repeat as NBA champions.
Despite the knee injury that Brian Windhorst of ESPN says occurred after James fell awkwardly, the King managed to score 29 points and lead the Heat to a comeback victory over the New York Knicks. He shot 52% from the floor and came close to a triple-double with 11 boards and seven rebounds.
And he was able to do this:
James is averaging 27.1 points, 7.3 assists, and 8.2 rebounds per game this season. He is a clear MVP favorite as he has led the Heat to the second-best record in the NBA. Only the San Antonio Spurs have a better record. Miami is now 43-14 on the season.
