Forgot to post that its an article from sports pickle and its completely amd 100% joke (apparently not as obvious as I thought) , exaggerating how nitpicky people are about trying to point out flaws in Lebrons game, I thought it was funny but everyone thoight I was serious because I forgot my source. Again a its from sportspickle.com
LeBron James won his second NBA title with a Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night. Yet the back-to-back championships did little to silence James' most ardent critics, who point out that the vast majority of NBA titles in history have not been won by the self-proclaimed "King" James.
Since the NBA Finals began in 1950, James has won just two of the 64 total championships awarded. In fact, he has only appeared in four of the 64 — a measly 6.25-percent appearance rate.
"I wasn't even born until 1984," said James, immediately grasping at an easy excuse for his failures. "I'm only 28 years-old and I have two rings. I think I'm doing fairly well. I'm trying to improve every year. I'm doing the best I can."
Even if James' supposed "best" is enough to keep his recent championship streak going for five or even 10 more titles, he'll still be short 62 rings — titles won by Bill Russell, Michael Jordan and other players clearly his superior who were winning long before he came along to cherry pick what's left.
People need to stop hating and focus on what they have accomplished in their own life. Point blank period
Telling what people should do is smart, thanks guy. A big part of sports is hating good players. And some of that hate is deserved when you proclaim yourself king james and have a tattoo "the chosen one" on your back, his hipicritical comments about flopping and his flamboyant gestures and attitude.
I don't like LeBron but I fully recognize what he's overcome and accomplished. He's quickly moving up the ladder of the greatest to every play and his conquered just about all of his basketball demons over the last two years.
However, I don't like him because he's disgustingly arrogant and one of the worst floppers and whiners.
Besides, when did sports become about everyone holding hands and getting along? Plenty of people hated Jordan, Magic, Bird, Wilt, etc. And plenty of people hate Kobe, Tim Duncan, Pop, KG, etc today. I think that's one of the things that makes sports so great. People want certain players to succeed and certain players to fail and everyone has a different opinion.
Now, I agree that there are people who irrationally try to say things like "LeBron really isn't that good" or "David Stern totally rigged the last two finals just so he would win" etc. Those people are idiots who live in a fairy tale world and don't know basketball.
LEBRON IS THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD.
I still don't like him though :)
the more people hate on lebron, it just shows how ignorant the world/basketball fans have become
They are really missing out.
Its probably the fact(yes, FACT, deal with it) that his legacy will always be tarnished by him teaming up with(at that time) two other top 15 players back in 2010. Lebron was 26, Wade- 28, Bosh- 26. I wont go any further than that because we've been talking about it for too long now. Go ahead and HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE all you want but just remember its the TRUTH-TRUTH-TRUTH-TRUTH-TRUTH.
No it won't be tarnished by that. He already has 2 finals mvps at 28, Nice try though future nba gm back to the drawing board
Call me when he gets a ring without Wade or Bosh. Until then, Ill just keep knowing the truth that some fickle heat fans wont ever admit
Here we go, knew youd go here lol
Kobes reapeat (without Shaq because I will take it easy on you): 46 playoff games
Pau Gasol averages 19, 11, 3 and two blocks on 56 % shooting
Lamar Odom averages 11, 9 on 50% shooting
Lebrons Repeat: in 46 playoff games
Dwayne Wade averages 19.4, 5, 4, 17 steals on 46% shooting
Chris Bosh averages 13, 7.5 on 47 % shooting (missed 9 games in there first one together)
Call me when Kobe wins without players equally productive in the playoffs
Mj had more productive players around him Scottie, Rodman
Magic had James Worthy, Kareem , Michael Cooper
Bird played on far more staked teams
Shaq had Kobe as his side kick
Isaih tohmas had Dumars and Rodman and the boys
Paul Pierce had more help in the playoffs than Lebron got
Chauncey Billups got more help from "non superstars"
All these finals MVPs had more help then James. So do your homework before you say something so inane.
And if you like I can go through and provide statistics of the supporting casts to prove that.
Also I'm a Raptors fan not a Heat fan.
So joining 2 superstars in their prime after you had a horrible game and went on national television and basically flipped off the professional basketball team in your home state won't tarnish your image or legacy?
There's always going to be haters, but history will recall that LeBron has two rings not this 62 short garbage. I'm sure the rings mean more to LeBron than those doubting the validity of his accomplishments since his peers respect the hell out of him and so do real basketball fans for that matter. Sure he joined a super-team but by and large, he still had to earn it because Wade and especially Bosh just weren't there enough.
This was supposed to be a joke.... Good lordy, the sense of humor on this forum is greatly lost.
I thought it was funny so I put it on here and got picked apart for it. But in their defense I didnt put a source but still...
Lebron hater haters are ridiculous. Go away, Let those have their opinions on the guy if they want. he's not very likeable, just face it.
I disagree. I've always seen him as a really good guy who isn't afraid to make fun of himself. People go out of their way for reasons to hate the guy, when in truth, he's never done anything negative that I know of. They hate on the man for his hairline for Christ's sake! (BTW Jordan was balding at that age too lol)...fans have gone overboard with "the decision" like he's the 1st to leave in free agency, or the 1st to play with great teammates. The only reason the tv special came about is because we fans, plus the media, made such a huge deal of his free agency. To my eyes he's a good guy, a good teammate, & a great ambassador for the NBA...anyone taking the OP seriously is a moron. I think its funny.
I'm sick of the people that say "Lebron haters are ignorant" and "Lebron haters are ridiculous"^. Why is it ignorant to dislike someone just because they are the best? I admit Lebron is the best player on the planet. I admit Lebron will end up being one of the all time greats (also sick of people trying to place him on the all time list right now with so much of his career left to go). With this being said, I don't like Lebron at all and will never be a fan of his. I give him the respect he deserves and am awed at some of the things he can do on the court no doubt, but why does that mean I have to cheer for him. I actually love Lebron's game, I don't like him because of his personality and how he acts (every single time Lebron missed a shot in this playoffs he threw a fit and &$#%#&@!ed at the refs). The Lebron bandwagon really needs to get over this whole "stop hating on Lebron" and "you just can't appreciate greatness" bit, because it's getting really old.
What is so wrong about rooting against Lebron James? I'm as much entitled to be a Pistons fan as I am to be a Lebron anti-fan. I root against Dwight Howard, Michael Beasley, Russel Westbrook, Demarcus Cousins, Andrew Bynum, Dwayne Wade, and Josh Smith. Now look at that list of players and tell me each of them doesn't have a reasonable beef...not saying I hate Lebron, in fact i'm often in awe of his athletic superiority. However I'm constantly annoyed by his on court flopping and complaining antics and his sometimes pompous attitude. Excuse me for wanting to root for the Kd's and Timmy Duncan's of the NBA...guys that hone their craft, compete all out all game every game, and who have a genuine humility to them. Not saying Lebron isn't the best now and he could very be on his way to being the first or second greatest basketball player ever....but I still don't like him, most likely will never like him and will always root against him
Being a hater of LeBron is just trying to say he sucks for no reason...
Disliking him is totally different, anyone can dislike any players they want.
I do have a problem with the idea people "nitpicked" game 6 that was an "epic" performance. Game 7 was epic. Game 6 had an epic run. But it will be hard to forget if Ray Allen had not hit that 3 at the end of game 6, the Heat would have lost essentially because LeBron was terrible down the stretch of the game.
