The wows are still ricocheting off Quicken Loans Arena after LeBron James went airborne Wednesday in Game 3 to arguably make the most talked-about shot in the NBA Finals.

Can anyone really blame Bleacher Report for turning the shot heard round the sports world into a fish tale of epic proportions?

 
Moving it to the metaphoric level James' golden feat mirrors the fate of the Cleveland Cavaliers in general: The Warriors had the ball, or in the case of the metaphor -- had two games in hand... Cleveland was down on the floor but by sheer feverish determination managed to keep things moving... they half-crawl to their side of the court to make it back into home territory... then Shazam, they slam dunk, super hero, monster alley-oop Game 3, ending 30 freakishly amazing points ahead of the team that lost the ball.
