Out of thin air

It can happen to the best of us. You put in hours of study, sit through numerous mock tests and yet, on D-Day, something strange happens and you cannot solve what might be the easiest of problems. Not just in the exam hall, it could happen on the football field, too. Just look at Lionel Messi's performance in Russia.

Legend of Lebron 

As the final buzzer of Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals went off, prompting wild celebrations among the Golden State Warriors players, staff and fans, LeBron James was already on his way to the locker room. What could have been on his mind at that moment? For the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was the worst possible result in the championship series — the 0-4 sweep ending on home court and decidedly worse than the 1-4 defeat to the same opponents last year. For LeBron, personally, the score was now 3-6 — three NBA titles, but six times losing finalist. In the debate that seeks to zero in on the greatest player of all time, a 33 per cent record in finals doesn’t help, especially when you’re up against a man who won six out of six, Michael Jordan.
