In the end it boils down to this: If LeBron's the best, he has to win. Rings. When he does I'll shut up- we all will. I suspect I'll keep talking...

and when has he done this before? he's not a rebounder- he got double digit rebounds because nobody else would get them- i would get 10 rebounds a game playing with barnagni too. not like this is a revelation, really.

Let me clarify one thing... Barkley and Chamberlain are all time greats. Didn't mean to imply they weren't. But they aren't tops at their positions.

I don't know. I don't think you can Chris Bosh isn't doing his job, because what's his job? He's Miami's version of Rashard Lewis. Wade, I think he is, but LeBron is the one who made himself the leader from day one. From what I've read, he took great initiative to do that, so that even though it might be Wade's team outside the locker room, it's LeBron's inside. For all the ragging on him I've done, he's not having a terrible season, but, if he wants to win championships, he has to change his mindset a LOT. He has to learn to accept blame, and not deflect it onto Spo for playing him 5 minutes more than he would like. I remember Kobe when things weren't going so well for him, the rape, b*tching about a trade, **** andrew bynum, etc., but he never lost the locker room, and he never lost the will to win. He made the adjustments, Kupchak got him some help, and now Kobe will go down as a great. LeBron is on the Barkley/Chamberlain track.. could've been all-time greats, the BEST, but most people still consider Duncan and Russell, respectively, to be better. It comes down to rings, both for LeBron's legacy and LeBron's fans, Wade has his and Bosh is irrelevant because he's a star only in the payroll department. That's why I'm harsh- I expect the best player in the NBA to have an All-First Team mindset as well. James Jones and co. just have to shut up and shoot 3's, and their salaries and stature reflect that.

It's about heart. Lots and lots of heart, Gene Hackman would say. MJ, the Derrick Martin game. MJ, game 5, 1997. MJ, game 6, 1998. MJ, game 4, 1993. Kobe's done it, Pierce has done it, Wade's done it, even T-Mac has come close (that one first round loss- one of many I admit- had to break his heart). LEBRON HAS DONE IT. YEAR 2 VS. DETROIT. HIM AND HIS "SIDEKICK" DANIEL GIBSON (?) WHO CAN'T OUTSCORE ANYBODY. Yes, it's possible. But not unless he really checks himself.

James Jones is doing his job. Carlos Arroyo is doing his job. Udonis Haslem is doing his job. Mike Miller will likely do his job, too.

LeBron James is not doing his job. Yes, it falls squarely on his shoulders, because he won more with less in Cleveland. With great power comes great responsibility... don't be surprised when you and your buddies all sign max contracts and the best you can afford is Eddie House.

If LeBron really does take these guys for granted, we'll see how Haslem's absence affects things. He's the anchor of that defense.

He's the most talented player in the league. No doubt about it. He is also mentally unfit to carry a team. If he wants to win he's better off standing back, focusing on defense, and letting Wade show him how it's done.

This is f*cking ridiculous. LeBron is the most oblivious athlete on the planet. Ron Artest is more cognizant of what is expected of an NBA player than LeBron. Surely Brett Favre at least knows he is giving the finger to America and doesn't care because he just wants to mess around on his farm and his cell phone. But LeBron says things like this, and whines about playing 44 minutes, and expects us to sympathize?

Here's something for you, LeBron: Most Americans don't have fun at their jobs. They get paid pennies compared to you- let's conservatively estimate you make $50 million a year between salary and endorsements. That's 1,000 times more than the guy in the cubicle making $50 thousand. You want fun, go play for the Globetrotters. You want your $50 million, and to be considered a great player, shut up and play. Maybe you and Vince Young can start a "When the going gets rough, we gets going" club.

What's sad is LeBron isn't the same player he was years ago when he put the Cavs on his back and carried them to the NBA finals. He's probably a better player physically, but that jump shot hasn't gotten any better, and whatever fire he had that year, poof. Gone completely. Which is why I would take the Celtics over the Heat any day of the week. One game, seven games, either way the Big 3 + Rondo + Perk will play with ,and Bosh and LeBron will "chill."

Charles Barkley. But your point is well taken. And how come all the fat ones end up playing for the Bucks?
Posted Saturday July 24, 2010, About: Who would Knicks deal for Paul?
the only real options for paul are orlando and the lakers. because he gambles so much on defense, he needs an eraser on the front line- something the knicks don't have. too few touches on the heat, okc might be a good fit but no way presti gives up green or westbrook or takes on that salary, denver has nothing to give in return, miami atl and dallas won't give him enough touches... that said, if orlando presents a good package- say, carter's expiring contract, ryan anderson, brandon bass and a few draft picks for paul and julian wright- it could be enticing enough
