In the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game LeBron’s headband was knocked off his head. LeBron freaked out and was visibly upset on the court. The King played for approximately two and a half minutes without his crown. The average fan reaction went something like this…LeBron’s headband just fell off. He looks weird without a headband. Then as they watched LeBron hit Jamario Moon with a backdoor pass for a dunk they forgot about LeBron’s lack of a headband. I admit I had the same reaction the first time I watched the game.
However, when I watched more closely I saw the truth. LeBron plays better without his headband. LeBron had two points and one assist during the two and a half minutes that his headband was missing. If you multiply those numbers by his average minutes per game he would be averaging 30.3 points and 15 assists per game. Suddenly it all made sense. [NoYork]

“Why would the Bobcats take a lesser package for [Stephen] Jackson? To me the answer is simple: to stick it to Jackson. Jackson asked out of Golden State at the beginning of the season. There were reports that Jackson was causing problems within the locker room. Warriors head coach Don Nelson and General Manager Larry Riley were both in agreement in finding a trade for Jackson and that getting him out of there in the quickest way possible would be the best. They wanted to get rid of him quickly, because things weren’t going to get better until he was gone. So for all the trouble he caused them, they stuck it to him and traded him to the Charlotte Bobcats.” [Cavalier Attitude]
Here are some positives we can take away from Sunday’s game:
- The bus made it to the game on time.
- Everybody wore the right uniforms.
- We fielded a full team.
- We scored as many points as the other team.*
- Nobody died.
See? It’s just the way you look at it. This game wasn’t a collapse. It was a collopportunity!
