LeBron was put in his place last night after Paul Pierce made a nice clean block. James is in the prime of his career, you wouldn't expect an old man like Pierce to block a player like LeBron. Check out this nice swat by Pierce:
Well done Pierce, well done. Maybe not an impressive block, but it was a huge block as the Heat lost by 1 to the Nets.
Can the Nets make a run for it this year? I think so. If they want to get a championship, this is going to be probably the last year for players like Pierce and Garnett. They have a perfect combination of players. From Deron Williams to Joe Johnson, they have a little bit of everything. Watchout for the Nets to make a nice little run, maybe even give the Heat some competition for the NBA Finals spot.
