Cinderella LeBron has found the clock is about to strike midnight and she hasn't had a good Finals game yet.
The fairy godmother may have changed the little mice into Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade, but they still show some of their worst rodent qualities against the D-Con called the San Antonio Spurs.
Even the coachman, Ray Allen, is showing his pumpkin roots.
If there is a Prince Charming, he is not playing for the Miami Heat. Erik Spoelstra may be the closest thing to a prince of a guy, but he is no coachman. At the end of this series we expect he will turn into a giant pumpkin out on his ear.
If you wanted to see Shaquille O'Neal as the fairy godmother, you'd see a magic wand turn into a fork as he stuck it into LeBron who is already half cooked.
Perhaps those glass kicks are cracking at the instep for Cinderella LeBron, or she has an ingrown nail. Something is keeping her from a successful NBA Finals.
The clock is ticking, and the entire Miami Heat shebang will turn back into their magical selves at the stroke of midnight. LeBron will again be in tatters and running out of the arena, leaving only a cracked glass slipper.
Unlike the other fairy tale, we doubt that any prince worth his salt will go looking to see if the shoe fits LeBron. Next season he should try playing Snow White with her dwarves.
