LeBron JamesAs bad as the Wizards defended James at the end of Game 3, what they did in overtime of Game 5 was worse. The Wizards can't allow any player to get the inbound pass going towards the basket. It is hard to believe that with three players defending James none could prevent his penetration. By the time Washington recovered it was too late. The Wizards should just sell out on him and make him shoot from the outside or pass. Two game winning hoops from two feet away is inexcusable.
