While the NBA sits on a hiatus, it's a good time to look back on some of the league's very best moments. Considering we would be in the midst of the Conference finals in a normal season, the playoffs are a perfect place to start. Did we forget how electrifying LeBron James' postseason debut was?
This was 2006! Before the Hollywood and Big 3 eras was the (first) Cleveland Cavaliers version of James. A young, dominant man who carried an entire team on his back.
After missing the playoffs in his first two years, James overcame adversity and delivered what Mike Breen called a "masterpiece" against the Wizards: 32 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists. In the franchise's first playoff appearance since 1998, James led the Cavs to a Game 1 and series victory, the first signs of a championship for the King and Cleveland.
