08:07 AM ET 10.23 | Unlike Dwyane Wade, who has reached out to his former college coach, Tom Crean, LeBron James doesn't have that particular connection. [James] went straight from St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron, Ohio, to his hometown Cavaliers as the top pick of the 2003 NBA Draft. Mike Krzyzewski, who has won four national championships in four decades at Duke, has seemingly stepped in to fill that void. ... On Tuesday, the Heat plays the Charlotte Bobcats in a preseason game at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. It is the closest the Heat gets to Krzyzewski's campus in Durham -- just a few miles away. Krzyzewski hasn't confirmed whether he will be attending the game, but James said on Monday that it would "be awesome" if he did.

That's a little over the top.

No its not....not when Bron's mother is fair game to posters who don't have any respect for a person's mother. I always, under any circumstance, take exception to this. You wouldn't want anyone talking disrespectful to or about your mothe,r and if you tell me you did, "I'd call you a liar".

You come after me with the comment "thats a little over the top" and contrarily, you remain silent in regards to the originally stated comment. Think about it........

And secondly, when I say a lotta of the Bron bashers mothers are your everyday common hooee, I'm talking about those bashers whom elect to disrespect Bron's mother as well. Respect deserves respect, nothing less. Those who elects to diss, get diss.

i love the idea coach mike kryzyski is one of the coaches in the land. if lebron needs someone to go to for help with basketball he the one to go to. they have a relationship because of the olymics and he fells good going to him. coach k is all so a good father figure to go to when lebron needs help.

NBA players aren't reading what people say about them on here. But when you respond to somebody's comment directly and call their mom a "common everyday hooee" I think you've crossed a line, IMO.

Good, thats your take. Its makes it better for them to call Bron mother the names that they do just because they can't read'em or hear'em, "great logic"..........as I said, you diss, you get dissed, plain and simple. Thats a truth in New York and should be no matter where you are!
