There was no better duo than Batman and Robin. But what happens when Robin wants just as much glory Batman? Answer is, It ain't never finna happen Robin!
So eventually, Robin will leave and become his own superhero. But when he realizes he can't beat anyone on his own besides villains like the Killer Moth and Kite Man, he'll probably contemplate joining Batman again.
And as his decision awaits, he will dream of the good ol' days when they took down the toughest villains in the world. Side by side.
NBA Free Agency looms large for many teams on the cusp of being great. And Kyrie Irving may possibly be linking up with a Lebron James again to rekindle their Batman and Robin relationship.
But instead of looking to the future, let’s fall in love again with the past. With the Warriors down 3-1 in the current NBA Finals, it reminds us of the only time any team has overcame that deficit.
The tandem of Irving and James could’ve been great for years to come. But alas, they could not continue together. So let’s look at the one night where it all worked.
With their backs against the wall, and the world doubting them, they delivered a performance for the ages.
The Warriors had just won Game 4 in a blowout in Cleveland, and were supposed to come back home to Oracle and finish the series at home. It was simply supposed to be a formality. And they played like they thought it was.
The Warriors got out to a 12-5 lead with Klay Thompson and Steph Curry both raining down three’s. They started to look to the crowd like “Oh yeah we got this.”
But with every punch thrown by the Warriors, the Cavs we’re ready to respond. The pace looked like it was favoring the Warriors, but the Cavs somehow had the game tied at half on the back of Lebron James.
James led the Cavs with 25 points, Klay led both teams with 26 points, and the score was 61-61 the highest scoring half in an NBA Finals game since 1987. The Warriors has more made three pointers than two pointers. Everything was shaping up to fall into place for the Warriors to go back-to-back as champions.
The Cavs continued their aggressive offense in the third quarter. Through three quarters, Lebron and Irving has combined for 8 three pointers and seemingly could not be stopped. Their hot shooting gave them a 9 point lead heading into the fourth quarter.
The fourth quarter was all Irving’s. He had always been a great clutch player, but he took it to the next level in this game. With the Warriors trying to close the gap, they began playing physical with Kyrie. In one play, he told the Warriors “I ain’t going home today!”
He put on a beautiful display of dribbling, he split a double team of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, got deep into the post, hit a full spin move into a fade-away shot, banked it in and got fouled. He let out a loud roar that could be heard from the rafters as he quieted the crowd with a single shot.
Then Lebron did his duties by hitting a dagger and-1 of his own. For some reason, Brandon Rush was on an island against Lebron. James took him to the paint, pump faked, took the contact and hit the jumper. This gave them a 16 point lead with 3 minutes left and left no doubt of who the best team was that night.
The first time ever a pair of teammates dropped 40+ points each in an NBA Finals game couldn’t have come at a better time. This was the beginning of the end of the historic season for the Warriors.
Batman could not take down these villains without Robin. And Lebron could not have scored 82 points by himself.
This was the moment that started a new wave in the NBA. Without this historic performance, Kevin Durant would’ve never went to Golden State. And while Game 7 was incredible as well, Game 5 is what started it all.
