yeah, lebron depends too much on athleticism, just like VC. I swear if dude gets injured( which I dont wish upon him), he isnt going to look anythng like a KING, and thats not hate, but with his size and HOW much, he's played since his inception he is headed that ay. He has waaaay more mileage than Kobe at that point then, he jumps wildly for entertainment purposes, and he has landed awkwardly more than a few times

"You have your trademark play, and that's one of my plays. It kind of looks like a travel because it's slow, and it's kind of a high-step, but it's a one-two just as fluent as any other one-two in this league. I got the wrong end of it, but I think they need to look at it -- and they need to understand that's not a travel," James said. "It's a perfectly legal play, something I've always done."

Rare you hear of a player admitting that he's always traveled.

I guess when you tell yourself a lie long enough it becomes the truth.

You're right Van Exel - wow.

The two things that will be LeBron's downfall: his athleticism and his stupidity.

"I'll have to check in my book to see what a 'crab dribble' is. I'm not quite sure," Washington interim coach Ed Tapscott said with a smile Monday. "I do know that we don't seem to get away with very many of them, whatever they are."

Referee Bill Spooner waved off the play and called the violation. Asked to clarify his ruling, Spooner wrote in an e-mail to a pool reporter: "3 steps on the move to the basket. Basic travel call."

Asked Monday if he knows what a "crab dribble" is, Wizards All-Star forward Antawn Jamison said, "I know what a traveling is. ... I think we all know what traveling is."

"'Crab dribble' is when you, uh, travel," Butler said. "That's the hottest thing on the market right now."

Turning to a more serious explanation, Butler said he thought James switched his pivot foot.

"I couldn't do it in AAU, I couldn't do it in college," Butler said, "and obviously I can't do it now."

He's not whining and people can't tell him to move on. If he's being asked about it he can't just ignore the reporter and stare into space.

Players get away with this daily in the NBA, Lebron gets away with it every game. It was clearly a travel in slow motion, and he should shut up, like Charles said.

Or, he could look awesome and admit he blew it for the team instead of saying this crabwalk crap. It just makes himself look bad, and it sets up for jokes, ala picture above

If he really thinks it wasn't a travel why should he shutup? To look "awesome"?

I respect someone more who keeps it real than someone who chooses "looking awesome" is more important than saying exactly what they feel.

If it were Kobe I doubt he'd shut up if he was asked about it.

Phil too.

He said he looked at the tape, in the tape, even you can clearly see that it was 3 steps. Only Lebron is talking about contesting this, not even the coach came out to challenge this or anything. It wasn't a terrible call, it was the right one. I can see Kobe contesting a call that was truly bogus, but I can also see him admiting him blowing the game for his team instead of indirectly blaming the refs for the loss. Cav's had their chances, and a team as great as a cavs shouldn't have to rely on one play for them to win or lose.

How many times has Kobe blamed himself for a loss?

How many games has Kobe complained about a call right after the game? This season? Lakers have never played a game where there was such a game changing call and Lakers lose. I didn't see Kobe complain about getting hit at Miami (which he didn't). At least this season.
