A couple of times a season, James has a game where he does something so remarkable that it is nearly numbing. He had one of them tonight against a surging Thunder team. He made a string of 3-pointers, each one appearing deeper than the previous when he knocked down three of them in a 63-second span, to help the Cavs get a key road victory. After each, he'd stare back at the Cavs' bench, making a circle with his index finger and thumb and slamming it against his eye with the other three fingers exposed. A gooseneck is what the Cavs call it, one of their little inside jokes. Anyone who makes a 3-pointer has the right to stare at the bench and receive those goosenecks in return. These are the little bonding exercises that have kept the team close during the past two seasons. Usually it is James who comes up with them, but it is how they spread through the team that creates a chemistry. Earlier in the season, it was a tap on the arm, like a manager calling to the bullpen for a reliever, that had caught on whenever James came into the game and played well in the fourth quarter.
