LeBron is not even on the same level as Michael Jordan as Michael elevated his
team and did it with mediocre role players around him. He went about things
wrong last year and his legacy will be one od selfishness and greed.
As much as I dislike the Heat and James, more than anything now I just want to
see Dirk win one. He has shown that "heart of a champion". He's had
his fair share of angry tirades, but overall the guy just shuts up and plays. He
has stayed loyal to his team, and doesn't talk about himself except when asked
to. Guy is a stud! Go MAVS!
The author must have been left off a team as a youth. LeBron took Cleveland
from nothing (again where they are this year) to the playoffs regularly. The
entire franchise was nothing without him.The author mentioned Kobe,
that was the same Kobe who when Shaq left him was asking to be traded until the
administration got him Gasol and Odom. That is what it takes to be a winner in
the NBA right now.Did anyone see when LeBron played the NBA's MVP
this season? Rose shot under 20% while guarded by James.Perhaps
James made a mistake not with his decision but with the way he announced it.
The Heat will get better as will James. This season he was the MVP but because
everyone had a hate on for him it becomes okay for these diatribe article to be
Whether a Heat fan or not, the stats and LeBron's overall performance speaks for
itself. The author is totally correct. When needed the most, LeBron was
basically a no-show. How a player finishes close games in the clutch, especially
important games, is what really seperates the great players from the good ones,
and truly defines their level of greatness. Time and time again, on the biggest
stage of his thus-far career, LeBron fell short of expectations and what was
needed to help his team succeed. Perhaps the pressure got to him. Only he knows
for sure. But one thing is for certain... with all of his credentials, much more
was expected from both his team's fans and his fellow team members. He will
probably do better in the future. But for now, he owns no bragging rights.
Besides Dirk and Wade, even Terry, Dallas's 6th man, outplayed him in the
championship series. Again, the stats speak for themselves.
