Not to get all scientific on you (though I am wearing my Beats By Dr. Dre headphones at the moment), but studies have shown that throwing beer on an elite athlete can actually take his performance to another level.

Ok, so the sample size is one, but it is a good one. Remember when David Beckham got a Heineken bath from a fan a few months back? Well, that sequence ended with Becks firing a perfect service that led to a goal.

Instigative fan + Motivated athlete = peak performance

So based on this theory, and the fact that LeBron’s beer shower came after he’d put up 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists against the Boston Celtics, I’ve got Bron penciled in for a Game 7 performance of 60, 20 and 10 …

Good luck, Celtics.

I’m not sure if this was English, German or Germenglish, but let’s hope his new club Hertha BSC has a rambling gobbledegook translator handy.

If not, video study of the following speech pattern after the jump might help:
