LeBron James, a joke?

June 10, 2011 |  1:06 pm

A friend messaged me with a joke a few moments ago.

"If you ask LeBron James to break a dollar, he'll only give you 75 cents," he said. "Why? Because he never has the fourth quarter."

Of course, he was referring to the fact that James scored only two points in the fourth quarter in Thursday's Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks. For the NBA Finals series -- which the Mavs lead, 3-2 -- he's totaled only 11 fourth-quarter points.

This after James tweeted "Now or Never" before Thursday's game.

It seems like King James is looking more like The Joker.

Will things change in Game 6 in Miami?
