LeBron James has met his match. Not since David went after Goliath has a big man found himself outmanned and undermanned.
For the second time in the playoffs, little Nate Robinson who started his career in the Munchkin League has taken on the personal suicide mission to tackle LeBron 'Don't Call Me Flopsy' James. He has taken to hitting LeBron harder than a cue ball knocked into the corner pocket.
Most people watching have come to the conclusion that it takes on two smooth stones to knock over the Goliath of Heat, and Nate Robinson appears to be the little man with the big stones.
Flopsy James insists he does not need to flop, and we take him at his word. Children can knock over LeBron if they have a mind to do so.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall, said old Budd Shulberg in his famous tale about boxers. LeBron would certainly qualify for a big faller.
Nate Robinson cut his teeth several years ago practicing against Shaquille O'Neal when they both were waiting for a bus with the Celtics in Boston.
When you run in Shaq's shoes, you start to believe that you are as big as LeBron. Nate famously put on Shaq's sneakers during one practice and ran the floor.
We have seen Chihuahuas go after a Clydesdale horse with a ferocity reserved only for Robinson tackling James.
As Robinson noted: LeBron acts in many advertisements and commercials; alas, as fans are learning, he only plays a big man on TV.
