    Wade really came alive. That was fun to watch. And LeBron with 40, 18, and 9 in this type of pressure-filled game on the road. Talk about shrinking in the moment.

The fact that everyone is rooting against him even though he's the most talented player of his generation.
    ??? His teams are 12-6 in playoff series, and have never lost in the 1st round. His playoff "failures" are so overblown. He played inexplicably poorly in one series in his career.

    Amended, his failure to win a title, something that A-Rod also failed to do for years, and which (far more relevant for present purposes) all other NBA players with 3 or more MVP trophies managed to do.

    That makes a little more sense, I guess. The problem is that 1) Both Moses Malone and Wilt Chamberlain won 3 MVP's before winning their first title and 2) LeBron's career isn't over, yet people want to talk about what he has or hasn't accomplished like it is.

    What is the NBA's PED testing policy? I actually have no idea. Not that I think LBJ has used roids.

    I'm one of the resident LeBron apologists, so I thought I'd share a good article from SI.com. To me, this speaks a little to our culture in general. That's one of the reasons why I'm so fascinated by what people think of LeBron. Our culture's tendency to nitpick the hell out of greatness, instead of really enjoying it, is interesting to me.

    I posted the part of the article that I think illustrates his points pretty clearly.

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...ron/index.html

    The truth is that the sci-fi performance we saw Sunday has some precedents. You might think nobody has ever done this before. Guess what? LeBron has done this before.

    I know that doesn't fit with the image of him in the fourth quarter, passing the ball to a teammate so he can use both hands to hold his teddy bear. But it's true. In 2009, he had 41 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Orlando. He followed that up with 44-7-12 in Game 4, and 37-12-14 in Game 5. In Game 6 he only scored 25 as his team got eliminated ... and the storyline was that he wasn't a playoff performer. I wish I were making that up.

    James averaged 35.3 points, 9.1 rebounds, 7.3 assists and shot 51 percent from the floor in the 2009 playoffs, and in the public's memory, he didn't get it done when it counted.

    In 2007, he scored his team's last 25 points in an overtime playoff win over the Pistons. I repeat: HE SCORED HIS TEAM'S LAST 25 POINTS. This was before we decided he was not a winner. I was there, and I've never seen anything like it. The Pistons had won a championship and nearly won another with their defense. Tayshaun Prince, one of the brightest players in the league, was guarding him. And LeBron looked like a cyborg.

    The Decision was very very stupid. To hold that against LeBron for 2 years, and allow that to dictate some incredibly irrational opinions, is excessive. The guy has never been in trouble on or off the court, he just made bad television. Plus, this has been going in since he was in Cleveland. That was before The Decision. What was the excuse then?

    People still care about the decision? Yeesh. I'm apathetic towards Cleveland, so I got over it pretty fast. Surprised people are still holding on to that after two years. Especially when you consider some of the infractions other athletes have committed (rape, assault, dog fighting, etc.).

    Fuck that. I plan on holding it against him for 20 years. It's not just 'bad television'. It's the single most egregious example of sports star egotism in US history. String your hometown team along for months then hold a one-hour television show to dump them and break their fans hearts? He makes the Kardashians seem humble in comparison.

    I was not aware of any anti-LeBron crap before that. I guess some people may have been critical of him because of all the hype and special treatment he got, but that's no different than anybody else. I mean, he was the next Michael before he played a minute in the NBA. He had his high school games broadcast on ESPN. That's gonna ruffle a few feathers (but not mine).

    Bleacher report:

    Everything we've known about LeBron has led people to reject him as a hero. The Decision. The self-serving ads. The refusal to shake hands with the other team.

    Heck, this goes back to high school, when LeBron showed up at an All-Star camp too injured to play, but wore a jacket declaring himself "King James" on the back. In high school.

    The single most egregious example in US history? So Shaq and Deion Sanders didn't bombard everybody with their self-proclaimed greatness before doing anything in their sports? Was I just hallucinating those rap videos and all that boasting? Allen Iverson didn't loudly say that he was above practicing with his teammates? If you want some big-time egotistical behavior, read The Jordan Rules. MJ had the biggest ego on the planet. He put himself above his team for his first few years in the league. He was openly more worried about scoring titles than anything. Earvin Johnson referred to himself as "Magic." I really think that would be construed as him having an ego before he even did anything, if he played nowadays. The thing that's changed in sports isn't the egos, it's the adversarial relationship that the media has taken on with athletes.

    I find it laughable that The Bleacher Report cites self-serving ads, as a reason to hate LeBron. I don't think I have time to list all of the athletes who have shot ads that hype them up or whatever. That's perfectly normal, but it's taken a different way with LeBron for whatever reason. Blake Griffin is in those types of ads right now, and he's only played in the NBA for 2 years and has won one playoff series.

    I think people have wanted LeBron to fail since he was in high school. He got more hype than any high-school player I've ever seen. But that's because he was the most gifted player anybody had even seen at that level. "King James" is something his friends would call him that just caught on. Not unlike "Magic." Were people upset when former MLB player Jerry Browne was called "The Governor"? Browne wasn't a good player, so his skills didn't live up to that nickname. Governor of what? But it was in reference to a real person, just like King James was in reference to a historical figure.

    But, I think you guys missed the point of the article. Hate him, that's fine. But don't let it cloud your judgement of his game. Because he really is great, and it kind of sucks that people who consider themselves basketball fans can't let themselves appreciate it.
