Former NBA great Michael Jordan in an interview in February told the world that in order to guard NBA star Lebron James, you have to force him to his left. After winning their NBA Eastern Conference Final playoff game on Wednesday night with a left hand layup buzzer beater to beat the Pacers, Lebron does not seem to think so.
“That theory is wrong, I guess”-Lebron James talking to reporters
This is not the first time that Lebron has won a game by utilizing his left hand, which is opposite of his dominate hand because he is right-handed. He did the same thing back in February, days after Michael Jordan had an exclusive interview with ESPN The Magazine claiming he studied Lebron’s game and the way he would guard him would be like this,
“So if I have to guard him, I’m gonna push him left so nine times out of 10, he’s gonna shoot a jump shot. If he goes right, he’s going to the hole and I can’t stop him. So I ain’t letting him go right.”-Michael Jordan talking to ESPN The Magazine
I guess this theory did not work out after all, but here is a little extra knowledge for the Lebron fans and supporters, Lebron writes with his left hand……..boooooooooooommmmmm……..guess he knows how to use it after all!!!
