I think Lebron's career path is gonna be similar to KG's...KG was a stat stuffer as well in Minny but he had only 1 year as MVP where his team was championship caliber while Lebron had that opportunity twice. Just like KG, Lebron is a stat sheet filler and gives the impression he's the best in the game...keyword: Impression but when it comes right down to gettin it done when your team needs plays the most, he's nowhere to be found and he's not a good closer at all...just like KG. Both crumbled under pressure. In the 08 finals KG was ineffective from the beginning of 4th quarter onwards id want him to take those jumpers or take shots or try to make plays because I knew he was the least reliable out of the Celtics on the floor out there...but he can get away with it because Ray Allen, Pierce and Posey made plays to help them win to take pressure off him when plays were needed to be made...Lebron is gonna have to do that he's gonna join a D-Wade or someone who's a better closer than him and Lebron's gonna have to take a step back and be the No. 2 guy if he wants to win a championship

Skip Bayless said it best on twitter "He's more of a Pippen than a Jordan"

If he were smart, hed take KG's wise words ""Loyalty is something that hurts you, cause you can't get youth back...I would have done it earlier." Lebron has a chance to avoid years being wasted like KG did and just make the move to put himself in the best position when the opening is available...which is right now. Lebron should call up D-wade and see if they want to pair up it would be mutually beneficial for both of them

Alot of truth from a cav fan.

"If I'm Gilbert, I fire everyone.

7 years is a long time to build around the best player in the league and I don't care if you want to think that Ferry did the best he could, he's underperformed at building a contender in comparison to other GM's around the league.

I've always been a big MB supporter, but 5 years is too long to not have a offensive strategy, a good working use of rotations, or a clue.

This team is filled with nothing but role players and scrubs after 7 years of upgrades.

I'm super pissed at Lebron for quitting on us in this series, but I'm not sure that I could get up and fight the fight every day when I know I'm the only one carrying any type of load.

Mo Williams should only be a 6th man type of player, not a point guard who could have the best finisher in the league. Lebron can't pass it to himself.

I really don't want Lebron to leave, but I can't think of too many reasons for him to stay either. Great supporting cast? No. Great Coach? No. Great GM? No. Optimistic looking future? No.

Great owner? yes. Close to family, friends and home? yes."

With LeBron, Shaq, and Iggy possibly off their books........they can pay for some quality people


Who wants to come to Cleveland without Lebron there?

Thank you Boston for slaying the Chav-aliers. It puts us one step closer towards possible payback.

I actually feel a little bad for Lebron and Cleveland Fans.
Lebron knows he can't do it by himself.
He left the game with his gun empty yesterday too.
Elbow healthy or not.

The Fans of Cleveland will never be able to overcome the disaster of losing a Superstar like Lebron.
There is no compensation.
Tough, Tough Loss.

Wherever Bron Bron goes next year I wish him the best of luck
and I will purchase Lebron Vs the Clipper tickets again like I did before. :yes:
Posted Image

Maybe I might just have to buy any Clipper ticket because he might be a Clipper?????? LoL

I know mostly everybody says Lebron is the best in the world but you can see there are things he has not perfected YET like Kobe .

As what my ignorant cousin says, " THE BEAN >>>>>>>> Leroids "

:laughing:
Somewhat true I guess.


Lebron is a Certified Beast ,
an if you don't enjoy watching him play you are not a true fan of the game of Basketball.

this is what happens when you surround a 18 year old star with a retirement home from day 1

had they surrounded him with legitimate young talent he could have at least grown with them and by now at least be in the vicinity of a chance at a title

The best player they surrounded himself with in his career is probably Mo Williams. Wow. Their drafts have been horrible and when they do get a good player as in Boozer he screws them over big time.

I always thought when rebuilding do exactly like the sonics/thunder did. Don't care about wins and losses. Don't try to get better by acquiring vets at the beginning but get high draft pics.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/CLE/draft.html This is their draft history and it is not very good.

They went from 17 wins before Lebron to 35, 42, 50 and therefore they soon lost the ability to have high draft choices.

If they would have stayed losers they may have been able to get the top pick the next year which was DHoward, not likely but atleast you would have been in the running instead they got the 10 pick and drafted luke jackson.

Thunder did a much better job of course.
