LeBron James has Maleficent to thank for NBA Finals comeback

Published Add your comment

LeBron James last night returned to his devastating best for the Miami Heat, hitting 35 points to help his team level up the NBA Finals series against the San Antonio Spurs at 1-1.

Just three days earlier however, the four-time MVP struggled off the court in the intense heat of the AT&T Center, suffering with cramps as the Spurs won out in Game One.

So how do you make such a miraculous recovery?

Well apparently a little bit of alone time with Disney is the perfect medicine.

Various pictures, such as the one above, are currently doing the rounds on social media showing the NBA superstar heading to the movie theater alone (without security, his entourage, or anyone at all for that matter) Saturday night to see Angeline Jolie's latest hit 'Maleficent'.

Speaking after his return to form Sunday night, James credited early morning yoga sessions for helping him to relive the pains and strains that had led to his cramping issues, but his solo trip to the movies in San Antonio did not get a name check.

Maybe James took inspiration from the magical plot line, or maybe he was just trying to take his mind of a difficult few days, but either way it certainly boosts the credibility of the movie when one of the greatest basketball players of his generation endorses it.

If only the movie had been released when Roy Hibbert was making zero points a night a few weeks back.
