Yes, Lebron os good. But, one good player doth not a championship team make.
Let us hope he becomes more of a team player than his past attitude hath oft
samuel h wiscomb:Lebron is a team player. Not only does he score,
he rebounds, assists and is considered one of the best defensive players in the
league. He is also highly coachable and respectful of his teammates and his
coaches. He has been to the finals four straight years with two rings. He went
to the finals another two times. Not sure what else he needs to prove exactly.
No player does it alone, and certainly no player can win titles without being a
"team player" of some sort, even Lebron.
I second what eagle said. You don't average 6.9 assists per game in your
career as a non-team player. A non-team player (who also happens to be the best
player in the world right now) wouldn't take a pay cut over several years
in order to allow his team to sign better players and allow his teammates to get
paid more. Fun fact: Lebron has never been the highest paid player on his
team. Some may think that LeBron trying to "take over" games (and
often succeeding) is selfishness. However, his coaches realize he is the best
there is and give him the green light to take as many shots as he wants. Most
are unfamiliar with this concept as they have never been the best in a league,
let alone the best in a single game, and have never had anyone on their team
this talented.Anyway, wasn't LeBron recently criticized after a close
playoff game for passing to Bosh for a corner three instead of taking a shot
himself? He made the right play that gave his team the best look. He's
absolutely a team player.
The Cavaliers, the Dallas Mavericks, the Houston Rockets, the Phoenix Suns and
the Los Angeles Lakers were the only teams he considered besides Miami. But he
later said he wouldn't leave Miami for anywhere except Cleveland.Dude, it's a cakewalk to get to the Eastern Conference Finals the last 10
years.The Meat wouldn't have been seeded over 4 or 5 in the
West, where the best teams play.What does he have to prove? I
don't know, that he can play with the big boys day in and day out?I feel a little sorry for Cleveland. If he were sincere, he would have signed
a 9 or 10 year deal. As it is, we don't know how long his contract is, but
I'll bet he has an option of turning tail in 2 years - and will. To
Cleveland, I can just say, "Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice,
shame on me."
I think he has gain more experience, brave to come back and to share his
knowledge gained. Such receive the highest prize. I congratulate him for burying
LeBron had never beaten my one-on-one but neither have Kobe or Jordan. I
don't like LeBron because he is the best player in the game today and he
doesn't play for the team I follow. By the way, I would have taken the
money and run to Miami. He has shown Cleveland as much loyalty as they have
shown him. Perhaps Cleveland is the prodigal city.
