View Full Version : This guy hits the nail on the head (LeBron suckfest) (Orlando Sentinel)

Now, maybe it will stop.

Or at least slow down.

Now, maybe we can turn on SportsCenter without hearing about how LeBron James might be the greatest thing to hit the NBA since birth control.

Hallelujah.

It's like listening to Barry Manilow singing "Mandy."

It's like listening to Stevie Wonder singing "I Just Called to Say I Love You."

It's like listening to Paul McCartney singing "Silly Love Songs."

Barf.

Yes, LeBron's a great player.

Yes, he hit a great shot Friday night in Game 2.

But from listening to all the hoopla, you'd think it was the greatest shot since William Tell split the apple sitting atop his son's head.

It's no wonder the raucous, roaring Magic fans Sunday night felt the whole world -- ESPN, Nike, the NBA -- was on LeBron's side. One fan even held up a sign that said: "Magic's 6th Man: The Fans. Cavs' Sixth Man: The Refs."

Seriously, have you ever seen so many invisible fouls? Dwight Howard fouled out on a phantom call on LeBron. Hedo Turkoglu was called for another. During a timeout while the Magic dancers were on the floor, LeBron actually walked right through the middle of their routine. Amazingly, none of the dancers were whistled for a foul.

When asked if he wanted to comment on the imperceptible fouls on LeBron, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy replied tellingly, "No, but you can. You write a column. The league won't fine you $25,000. You guys see it. Write what you saw."

Give Van Gundy and the Magic credit. They are the only ones in the league who refuse to be LeBron's LeBootlicker. Gotta love Van Gundy barking at his team and telling them to quit being LeBron's "witnesses" during Game 1. Or Dwight actually snarling at LeBron when the two got tangled up Sunday night.

This why the Magic own the Cavs. This is why they've beaten them 10 of the last 14 times they've played. They don't kneel down and kiss LeBron's Nikes. They may give him his points (41 on Sunday), but they don't give him their genuflection.

Excuse me if I sound bitter about the LeBron LeBoosterism. True story: As Sentinel colleague Brian Schmitz and I were walking down an empty hallway in Cleveland's arena late Friday night after Game 1, a security guard started yelling at us: "Step to the side! Step to side!"

What? ? Was this some sort of medical emergency? Were EMTs rushing some fallen fan to the hospital?

Not exactly.

It was just LeBron being escorted to the media interview room. And, apparently, nobody occupies the same hallway as LeBron for fear the intruders might smush the rose petals being thrown at the king's feet.

Don't get me wrong, this is not LeBron's fault. He is an exceptional player, but the fawning fans, media and refs are making everybody sick of him. A classic case of LeBron LeBurnout.

And if you haven't caught it, it's only because you haven't turned on ESPN since his buzzer-beater in Game 2. From hearing the commentators coo over him, you'd have thought LeBron had just scored the winning goal for the 1980 U.S. hockey team. The only thing missing was Al Michaels yelping, "Do you believe in miracles!"

Do you believe in hyperbole?


One shot in Game 2 of a conference final against little ol' Orlando breaks a decades-long curse? Really? Coming soon: LeBron buzzer-beater fixes foreclosure crisis.

Question: Why is it when Rashard Lewis hit a game-winner, it's a good shot, but when LeBron hits one, it's a legendary shot?

"We were able to overcome the dagger (of LeBron's shot)," Van Gundy said sarcastically after the win Sunday night.

A google search of "LeBron shot" before Sunday's game, netted headlines such as, "Has LeBron James overturned Kobe Bryant's s legacy?" Or, "LeBron hits last-second shot that rivals Michael Jordan's."

Let me see if I've got this straight: M.J. and Kobe have nine championships between them, but LeBron hits a three-pointer in Game 2 of the conference finals and suddenly he's somehow in the same class as two of the greatest champions of all-time?

Stop it.

This LeBron LeBuildup is akin to Tim Tebow times 10. Like Tebow, we all recognize James as a great player and a good guy, but do we really need to hear the hyperbole ad nauseum? Remember when Fox announcer Thom Brennaman crooned during the national championship game, "If you're fortunate enough to spend five minutes around Tim Tebow, your life is better for it."

Gag.

The LeBron LeLovefest is even more out of control.

Except there is one difference between LeBron James and Tim Tebow:

Tebow has actually won a championship.

LOL what a worthless read. Just rehashing the same thing that has been said over and over and over again. The only thing worse than the Lebron fans is the Lebron haters and all the people who hate all the media hype he's getting. Here's an idea if you don't like it don't turn on ESPN, don't watch the games. Get over it. This part really made me lulz

"This why the Magic own the Cavs. This is why they've beaten them 10 of the last 14 times they've played. They don't kneel down and kiss LeBron's Nikes. They may give him his points (41 on Sunday), but they don't give him their genuflection."

At least regarding the ECF the reason the Magic have won 2 is because the Cavs are missing wide open shots that in the regular season they would make. That's the sole reason the Magic have won 2. Had Mo and Delonte been hitting those wide open shots like they were in the regular season Magic would have been blown out of games 1 and 2 and would have lost game 3 as well. Before anybody says it yes I know if and buts are candy and nuts just saying they make those wide open shots Magic would be done.

Fixed.

Yeah thats the key to winning games. Making shots. Great teams make the shots.

Keep in mind, I dont hate Lebron. I think he is one of the greatest players ever. He is one of the strongest finishers to the basket I have ever seen.
Unfortunately for the Cavs, they have reverted back to 4 guys & Lebron.

id say thats reason enough to not buy into this bull**** LeBron hype. If you cant hit wide open shots in the playoffs, that should probably tell you something about this Cavs team.


That's the sole reason the Magic have won 2. Had Mo and Delonte been hitting those wide open shots like they were in the regular season Magic would have been blown out of games 1 and 2 and would have lost game 3 as well.

Never The Kings fault, right? :rolleyes:


Before anybody says it yes I know if and buts are candy and nuts just saying they make those wide open shots Magic would be done.

uh what? Magic should be up 3-0 right now lol. not the other way around. If Lebron was half the man the media and fanbois like yourself hype him up to be, he could at LEAST hang with a somewhat impressive Magic team. But of course its never Lebrons fault because of a single, worthless shot. What a shame.

I agree 100% they have reverted back to 4 guys and Lebron. Now had those 4 guys continued to contribute like they did in the regular season and up until the ECF the Magic would have been blown out in games 1 and 2 and lost game 3. If the Magic were constantly forcing the Cavs into tough shots down the court everytime I'd give them a lot more credit but that's not the case. It's just the Cavs players missing wide open shots.

How the hell is Lebrons's teammates missing wide open shots reason enough to not buy into the bull**** Lebron hype? Do you even think before you type?

The King is averaging 42 PPG, 53% FG, 6 RPG, 7 APG, 1.3 SPG, and 1.6 BPG... does that really sound like he isn't doing his part?

LOL! Now this part really had me rolling.

"If Lebron was half the man the media and fanbois like yourself hype him up to be, he could at LEAST hang with a somewhat impressive Magic team."

HAHA, guess we all know who the fluffer for LBJ is before games. Shooting 39% AND having wide open shots = full of fail. It really is amazing to me that you dont care about the extensive media jizzfest over Lebron, yet even YOU admit the Cavs have had wide open shots and haven't risen to the occasion. Hows that BBC taste, fanboi? Keep making excuses for your BF.

Yeah because there were absolutely NO invisible fouls called against the cavs either right?

Kobe, Jordan weren't ever hyped either were they?

Bitching about the "legendary" shot Lebron made, the reason its so spectacular is because NO ONE expected it. 1 second? That is barely enough time to get a shot off. There are plenty of others that get recognized. It'll be a dot on the horizon after this year is over, big ****ing deal cry about it.

Uhm really...people are blaming LeBron for his team being down 2-1? What the hell do you want him to do? I didn't realize it was his fault that Z and Mo have been complete choke artists in this playoff series offensively, maybe he should go over basic shooting fundamentals with them in practice since Mo is shooting 32% and Z is stroking it at 37%? Yeah, James sucked it up from 3 point land in game 3, but the rest of his team can't hit dick with a 12 foot pole, so I say fck it and huck it. You're right though, LeBron should be averaging 60/12/10 to ensure victory. All his fault. He's just been turrible.

I agree the LBJ media storm because of that shot has gotten out of control, but somehow blaming him for being down 2-1 against Orlando is laughable at best.

If your so the called "leader" of the team, yeah its your fault. Sorry to break it to you that way. Leading your team to be great and winning championships is what separates him from greats like MJ,Kobe,Shaq,Walton,Russell,Bird,Magic,West,Chambe rlain,Adbul-Jabbar and so on

They've played like **** in this series, so obviously they were playing leaps and bounds better in the regular season because from what I've seen that team isn't sniffing 66 wins in their current form.

So they're not a **** cast then. You can't win 74 out of 93 games and because you lose 2 games in the ECF you magically are a **** cast. **** casts don't win 66 games during the regular season. David stern is that you?

Great article except for...


Let me see if I've got this straight: M.J. and Kobe have nine championships between them, but LeBron hits a three-pointer in Game 2 of the conference finals and suddenly he's somehow in the same class as two of the greatest champions of all-time?

Kobe=Shaq's Scottie Pippen

I should have clarified more, because I agree that a **** cast doesn't win 74 out of 93. I don't live in Cleveland and didn't catch nearly any of their regular season games (and didn't watch them in the Hawks series), but considering the way they are playing right NOW I can't fathom how they won so many games in the regular season. Their shooting is terrible, they can't hold onto a lead, etc. Cleveland's role players are looking extremely underwhelming right now.

Oh trust me, as a Phoenix Suns fan, I know all about a lack of bench depth in the post season.

Okay brah. Clevelands supporting cast is ****, I honestly do not know how they won so many games in the regular season. Oh and mentioning Kobe is funny, look at what he did in the playoffs back when his supporting cast was garbage a few years ago. I'm a Suns fan, I remember quite well.

lolwat?

Mo Williams=all star
West=good 3 point shooter
Wallace=defensive player of the year 2 years ago
Z>Kobe's center at that time
Varejao>Kobe's PF

Besides, Cavs only got to finals because they are in a ****ty eastern conference..Kobe played Suns who had 2 Superstars in their primes and 3 stars also in their primes.

just using your ****ty logic, moron. how am i supposed to know Lebrons shot is gonna be on ESPN for a week straight? And why the **** would you even try and suggest not watching ESPN/basketball just to try and avoid it? dumb as **** = you.

Obviously you're too dumb to read the title or you would have seen what the article was about instead of crying like a bitch about how everyone supposedly hates your Hero. Truly pathetic.



HAHA, guess we all know who the fluffer for LBJ is before games. Shooting 39% AND having wide open shots = full of fail. It really is amazing to me that you dont care about the extensive media jizzfest over Lebron, yet even YOU admit the Cavs have had wide open shots and haven't risen to the occasion. Hows that BBC taste, fanboi? Keep making excuses for your BF.



LOL i dont even have to say anything. clearly your outlook on the playoffs is skewed because you have "THE KINGS" (LOL) testicles so deep in your eye sockets, all you can see is his "glory".



You know what part had me rolling? The part where you drooled all over Lebrons Nikes just like it ironically mentioned in the article. The you proceeded to cry about it when you could have just looked at the title of the damn thread to see what it was about instead of writing a bunch of gay, man-loving poems in the name of "THE KING" lmao.

Here's an idea when it comes on change the channel. I realize a task like that is nearly impossible for somebody of your intelligence level but maybe practice it a few times and you might learn how to do so.

LOL! Lebron's open shots have been very limited and he's been shooting 53% throughout the ECF. Try and look at the full picture instead of just taking 1 game. Why would I care? Why should anybody care? Get the **** over it, Lebron gets a lot of attention you don't like it don't watch/read/listen to things about him. It's really not that hard to avoid. No of course like an idiot you fail at reading. I said the Cavs role players have. Lebron has not had many wide open shots. You never see anybody double off Lebron.

LOL! Sorry I like to actually use stats to back up my opinion where as you like to use nothing to back up yours. Looks like all that fat has consumed your brain and you have lost all logical thought. Even that's giving you a lot of credit becaue that's assuming you had some to begin with.

You mean the part where I quoted his statistics from the ECF... oh yea that's just totally drooling. I mean every time somebody's states a players stats they are just totally drooling over them. What color is the water where you live.

youre too busy crying about lebron haters to correlate the hate Kobe gets vs. the hate Lebron gets. Just keep that BBC in your throat bro, the whole ESPN staff needs a turn afterwards.

Because it was completley random and had absolutely nothing to do with what we were talking about. I realize you are completely void of being able to stay on topic and make a half way decent response to anything so I guess this is about what I should have expected. Just keep whining about Lebron, yet I'm sure you're turning on ESPN every night to wack off to him since you seem to just not be able to avoid watching him.

If your so the called "leader" of the team, yeah its your fault. Sorry to break it to you that way. Leading your team to be great and winning championships is what separates him from greats like MJ,Kobe,Shaq,Walton,Russell,Bird,Magic,West,Chambe rlain,Adbul-Jabbar and so on

This couldn't be more wrong. 1 person can only do so much. The team isn't called the Lebron's its called the Cavaliers hence the team is more than 1 person and if the team loses it's not just Lebron's fault. He's the leader and he's been leading them well above what he should need to be doing for them to win.

Respected former players, NBA analysts, and my two eyes tell me Lebron is a great player. I don't need a writer from the Orlando Sentinel or ESPN to make me form an opinion. It's not like this Magic team is a terrible team at times this season they were considered the best team in the east. It's not some monumental upset if they win, they are the more talented team.

Let me know when Lebron has a Pippen, Shaq, Kobe, Jabar as a teammate. All those guys listed had a solid number two, Lebron doesn't. They are the only team left that doesn't have two legit threats.

I think its because they dont have enough experience when it comes to crunch time. During the regular season they blew most times out the water the whole game. It seems like they dont know how to hold a lead once a team starts making a come back


The beat average teams in the regular season, and when they faced playoff teams they themselves were average. I don't have the numbers, but I'd bet their record versus playoff teams was average.

out of the teams that are left, their record is 3-4. One win vs. Orlando, two vs. Denver.

1-2 (now 2-4)vs. Orlando
0-2 vs. L.A.
2-0 vs Denver

No, it's not that they didn't start sucking until now it's just that they haven't been playing the magic since the regular season. The magic owned them like no other team during the regular season and they're continuing their ownage in the playoffs. This has nothing to do with the cavs **** cast but everything to do with the magic and how well they match up with the cavs.

If they suck now, they sucked then. I remember folks saying Mo Williams was the real mvp of the team and with him being teamed up with lebron, lebrick will finally win a title. LMAO!
