First Things First asks the Portland star to chronicle LeBron James’ playoff performance. He does not disappoint.

NBA: Playoffs-Cleveland Cavaliers at Toronto Raptors Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum has a hundred moves on the court, as his 21 ppg scoring average attests. As it turns out, McCollum is capable of scoring points off the floor as well. Appearing with First Things First, the aspiring broadcaster breaks down LeBron James’ incredible performance as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of their NBA Playoffs series.

Part of CJ’s analysis:

I think it all starts with LeBron, Ty Lue mixing and matching the lineups, putting Kevin Love at the 5 last night was big, an underrated thing that went on...being able to get Valanciunas in pick and rolls, LeBron exploiting mismatches, kind of playing chess with the game. Then you got the fade-away going...

Not bad! You can see the rest of his breakdown in the video here.
