Young Cavs fan calls LeBron James’ game-winner, doesn’t even bother watching (vid)
LeBron James once again played the role of postseason hero Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena, making two sensational clutch plays in crunch time to seal a 98-95 victory for his Cleveland Cavaliers, a critical win that gave the team a 3-2 series edge over the Indiana Pacers.
And one young Cavs fan had so much confidence that James would hit the magnificent buzzer-beater he did not even bother watching it after confidently predicting the shot was good by casually proclaiming, “Game.”
Here’s youngster David Johnson making the call after turning away from the television screen.

Fantastic. Now that’s some serious, ice-water-in-the-veins kind of swagger that even King James would have no choice but to admire.
Young David’s dad, Steve, who posted the video on Twitter, called his son’s cold-blooded call “Classic Dave.” We’ll take his word for it. Let’s just say David’s prognosticating the game-winner had much less controversy surrounding it than an amazingly clutch play out of LeBron on the defensive end of the court that preceded his buzzer-beating dagger.
