The fans who refer to LeBron James as LeChoke had quite a time last night as the San Antonio Spurs beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 92-90. It was an exciting matchup as expected as the NBA Champions took on LeBron and the new look Cavaliers. The game came down to the wire as Manu Ginobli hit 1-of-2 freethrows giving the Spurs a 92-90 lead. The Cavaliers had 9 seconds to hit a shot to tie or win the game when James was dribbling to half court and lost control of the ball, committing his fifth and final turnover of the game. Ginobli recovered the ball and dribbled it out as the clock ran down. When the buzzer hit LeBron simply put his hand up taking blame for the loss and walked off the court.
