Athletes are some of the most superstitious people on earth. There are hundreds upon hundreds of stories out there about athletes doing weird things with the hope that it’ll lead to them doing their job at the highest level.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are proof of this. More specifically, LeBron James is a pretty superstitious guy in that he doesn’t like using Twitter during the postseason. Each of the last four years, whenever the Playoffs roll around, LeBron activates “Zero Dark Thirty-23” mode (it was called “Zero Dark Thirty-6” mode when he was with the Heat).
Just before midnight on Saturday, LeBron decided it was time to get into his zone.
