First Take's Stephen A. Smith says LeBron James wasn't the "Hercules" that we're used to seeing during the Cleveland Cavaliers' win over the Toronto Raptors in Game 1.

That was one hell of a matchup though.. it was fun to watch.. I wanted to see about 3 more overtimes.

It's obvious LeBron is burnt out. He already admitted it. The series against Pacers really took a toll on him. But still, he's dragging the team.

And as for the last night's victory, Stephen A. claimed his teammates stepped up. But I think it was more Raptor's own ingenuity that made them lose.

Anyway, we will see if LeBron's mates can perform well, which has never been a constant. In other seasons he could count on Irving. But now he just looks like a lonely island.
