The Wizards said a lot. Then LeBron James showed up.

The Wizards are the best team in the Eastern Conference, and the Cavaliers are afraid of them.

It’s true, I swear. I heard it Friday afternoon, right from the mouths of Bradley Beal and John Wall, right there on ESPN. That was about eight hours before LeBron James bulldozed over them, through them, around them, between them, and on top of them in one of the greatest shows of his career; before his Cavaliers flicked away this happily chatty Wizards group whose message had been delivered behind a microphone instead of on the court.

You know what? On second thought, Cleveland didn’t seem afraid.

Washington has spent consecutive Friday nights on national television against the NBA’s two marquee franchises. Last week, the Wizards coughed up an 18-point lead in a loss at Golden State. This time, they were handled on their home court by the Cavaliers — well, really  by James. And this 130-122 result might force a temporary softening of Washington’s rhetoric.

The Wizards have now witnessed greatness two Fridays in a row — transcendent, impossible greatness from James, who poured in 57 points, made shots you wouldn’t even attempt on a Nerf hoop, and probably would have made the Monstars cower.
