Daily Dime TV: Game 6 Preview

LeBron's Legacy At Stake

By Ian O'Connor

LeBron James is a comic-book figure stripped of his cape, an emperor stripped of his clothes. He has more to prove in Boston than any enemy force since the '85 Lakers hit the parquet floor after their Memorial Day emasculation in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
