There’s been jokes around the league that LeBron James is the coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers not David Blatt.  More and more each game, this “joke” appears to be true.  On Sunday during the Cavs game 4 against the Chicago Bulls, James hit an incredible long jumper at the buzzer to give Cleveland the 86-84 win.  What really drew eyebrows is that James admitted Blatt had drawn up a completely different play which LeBron decided to scratch and come up with his own plan which resulted in the game winner.

“To be honest, the play that was drawn up, I scratched it,” James said after the game. “And I told coach, ‘Just give me the ball. Either it’s going to overtime or I’m going to win it for us.’ It was that simple.”

Originally, James was supposed to take the ball out. He wasn’t having it.

“I told coach there’s no way I’m taking the ball out unless I could shoot it over the backboard and go in. So, I told him to have somebody else take the ball out and get out of the way.”

It worked, and rather than going home to Cleveland on Tuesday in a 3-1 hole, James and the Cavs have tied the series at two games apiece.

“I’ve made big shots before in the postseason,” James said. “Obviously this was a big one for our team. You don’t want to go down 3-1 to anyone. I was able to regain home court with the shot. For me, I just don’t like letting my teammates down. I did that on a few plays late in the fourth quarter. There were a couple of offensive foul calls. I was happy to be able to make a play at the end.”
