    If Lebron wanted a ring, he should have stayed in Cleveland and bought one from Terelle Pryor.

    End of story, you mad? lol

    For the last time, either you really have trouble grasping this or you really hate to admit when you're wrong lol, putting up MVP numbers doesn't always mean you're an MVP. He's Danny Granger and Kevin Love. What do they all have in common besides put up pretty numbers, they won't carry a team, just like Bosh has never carried his team anywhere. Bosh is a sidekick on a good team, like Gasol, except he's a few notches below Gasol.

    I never said they were hands down the best defensive team, no questions asked, but they certainly were arguably the best defensive team.

    Uhh, what about when Kobe shoots his team out of a game? Oh wait, he has players that can back him up. Speaking of finales, what about Kobe's 6 of 24 finale, oh wait look above, must be nice to have a great supporting cast that can hit big shots, huh. The series was winnable because Cleveland had a back to back MVP and first team defensive player on their team (which is going to cover a lot of flaws, so please get that weak "oh they had the best record" argument out of here). "Omg LeBron couldn't score 35 with a triple double every night against the best defense, it's all his fault, should have gave the ball to Jamison, he would have got it done!"

    And I will bring up Cleveland's 19 win season... new staff, injuries, yeah, yeah... yeah, no team is going to win a ring in that situation but they're the only team to lose 26 in a row. You have blinders on if you thought LeBron's supporting cast was anything above average. And stop bringing up the trade, for the last time, they upgraded with it.

    The Decision Pt 2, starring Kyrie Irving, coming Summer 2016 jajaja.

    And I honestly hope that wasn't a serious question when you asked why Miami lost more than Cleveland. But in case it was...

    1. Chemistry, you know, it's kinda important, remember the really slow start and then how much they started rolling after they actually got to play a few games together... yeah... that would be chemistry.

    2. Lack of depth... I said from the very start before they even played a single game, that don't be surprised if Miami gets bounced in the second round because regardless of how good your 3 best players are, especially in the playoffs, you need bench production. Haslem was gone for the season, Mike Miller was useless, they had a starting center nobody wanted, their first starting point guard was someone nobody wanted, then their second starting point guard was someone nobody wanted, and they had Juwan Howard in their rotation LOL. Outside the big 3, they had an unhealthy Haslem and Chalmers.

    And fyi, for all the people that said Miami was the best team, the same number of people said they weren't. And just so you don't put words in my mouth, that's not me making excuses for Miami, they were good enough to win it all and would have if LeBron would have just had an average series. See? That's me putting blame on LeBron. And I will do so when he deserves it.

    LeBron had a good series overall. Unlike Kobe, if he wasn't on, he didn't have guys that can back him up. The Cavs literally lived and died by LeBron.

    LeBron shut D-Rose down, he couldn't score on him not because LeBron was mugging him, but because D-Rose was intimidated and kept shooting step back jumpers. Marion hit a couple of fancy shots and now he's owning him? The hate for this man...

    Terry hit a lot of difficult jumpers. Why didn't LeBron guard Dirk? Uhh maybe because then Bosh would have to guard the perimeter? I'm assuming you don't have a coaching resume.

    Uhh no, I didn't act like LeBron did everything for Miami. And I've said so in the past that Wade is just a small notch below LeBron. I'm not a LeBron a** kisser (you should be able to tell from other posts) nor am I a Kobe hater. I just keep it real, I criticize either when they deserve it and praise either when they deserve it.

    Uhh, Shaq? Uhh, he wanted LeBron to win a ring for him because he was on his last legs, thanks for validating my point.

    Except the Celtics didn't shut him down, I mean if it was so easy to just clog the paint so he'll disappear, why not just do it again because it's just that simple, right. (Please, let's not forget Magic was also a turnover machine even if he didn't "jump pass")

    He can only pass in the paint? Uhh wow, way to just pull crap outta your a**.

    His defense is only above average? 3 time first team defense says otherwise.

    Lol at Deshawn Stevenson. What did LeBron say the first time he talked trash, oh right "that's like Soulja Boy trying to diss Jay Z."

    Too bad Kobe will never be fully healed.

    It's sad that he's more competitive with 14 year old kids than he is against actual NBA players.

    His whole "come on! Come on! Come on!" calling for the ball basically just hoping to get the one kid out is embarrassing.

    I play "gotcha" at the gym with kids here and there, and I walk- I'd feel ridiculous if I actually tried. This dude's running and dunking to stay alive and bounce kids...and he's an nba player.




    But... it's not as if Lebron doesn't always find a way to show us that he's more of a douche than we could ever imagine.
