LEBRON: THERE WHEN YOU NEED HIM
LeBron James always disappears in crunch time: That was the criticism of James' career for years, and he has dismantled that theory over the last two months.
First he dominated the NBA playoffs with the Heat to earn his first championship. Now he's carrying Team USA.
When Lithuania was testing the Americans for the first time in London, James scored 9 points in the last four minutes to take the game over.
Final: 99-94. Team USA with the win, LeBron with the save.
