The decision was a bad deal unless of course he would have done it to proclaim he was staying in Cleveland for life. Im a fan of LBJ just like I was a Jordan fan but despise the City of Chicago. Never really understood the jilted girl friend hating thing and Im sure it takes a certain package of character and personality traits that I wasn't born or raised with. Obviously 3 finals appearances with 2 rings shows the man made a great career move with a chance to 3peat drawing near. I wonder if the spurned gf's would all change their minds if he was to opt out and sign with our Cavs next year?

Yea that is obvious. I was addressing the jilted lovers and since he only played for the Cavs prior to Miami then I do not think the others would fall under that category. Cant wait for the "Decision pt 2"

Honest question, not dissing your LBJ hate:

What fuels your LBJ hate? Is it just the way he left Cleveland for Miami? I think the guy gets a lot of undeserved hate for committing ONE real bad "action" in his career. Off the court the guy has been impeccable, on the court he's been even better. I don't think Kobe gets half the hate LeBron does and that is a guy who: 1) Chased Shaquille O'Neal (the Finals MVP for Kobe's first 3 titles) out of Los Angeles, 2) cheated on his wife at best, raped a girl at worst, 3) payed off his wife with diamonds in the middle of the whole ordeal, and 4) is a huge part in the Lakers being horrible right now due to his humongous contract that has come with zero production from him for two years.

What fuels your dislike for LBJ ?

Fixed.

Is it just the way he left Cleveland for Miami?

Wasn't a fan before he left Cleveland.

on the court he's been even better.

If you ignore the flopping, traveling, and whining about every call, sure.

1) Chased Shaquille O'Neal (the Finals MVP for Kobe's first 3 titles)

Chased? He didn't leave during FA. He was traded. Are you going to act as if Shaq was a victim in all of this?

Shaq may have been the Finals MVP, but he wasn't winning anything without Kobe.

4) is a huge part in the Lakers being horrible right now due to his humongous contract

Is this a joke? Injuries and bad coaching decisions(MD over Phil) are the reasons LA is having its troubles at the moment. It's ridiculous to suggest that Kobe is to blame.

that has come with zero production from him for two years.

You're confusing Kobe with Nash.

You answered the question. You're obviously a Kobe fan. That explains everything. 

"Flopping, traveling, and whining about every call"? If that's the takeaway for you when you watch Lebron, then you don't just "dislike" him, you HATE the guy. Seriously. LBJ is the best player in the NBA, and anyone that denies that fact has an agenda. I dislike Kobe, because ultimately he's a selfish player, but I can't deny the guy's greatness. At one time, he was the best guard in the NBA, and one of the best pure scorers of all time. I don't like him, but I recognize awesome when I see it, despite his obvious flaws.

Lastly, do you REALLY think the Lakers would be just fine if they had Phil coaching them the last 2 years?

Thank you for telling me how I actually feel. :/

I don't remember saying he wasn't. This year? That's debatable.

Healthy with Dwight(with Jackson he would have stayed)? Absolutely.

Irrelevant? Hardly

You're welcome. It's good to work thru your feelings by talking about them.

Best player in the NBA is not debatable. Glad you agree.

Every team would be better if they were all 100% healthy. With Phil, and with the injuries (you can't magically take those away, they happened, and you have to deal with them), I'll even give you with Howard, that team was still not making the playoffs this year. Not in the loaded West.

The guy that is about to win the MVP says otherwise.

Did you not see how many injurie the Lakers had this year? Heck, being 65% healthy would have been a miracle. The Lakers made the playoffs with Smush Parker as the PG, and Kwame Brown as the C. You're saying with a healthy Kobe, Gasol, and the best center in basketball, they wouldn't have made the playoffs? Seriously? You're assuming Houston would still be the same team without Howard. They wouldn't.

This is fruitless, because you obviously don't read any of the responses closely. 

But my last point, the guy who's about to win the REGULAR SEASON MVP is in a fight to even make it out of the first round, playing a team that has his number. In the FIRST ROUND.

The real MVP will be the guy who wins Finals MVP.

I'm pretty sure if he were playing the Bobcats, his team would be up 3-0 just like Miami is. But lets pretend like Memphis isn't a good team.

When you sound exactly like all of them, it does have something to do with you. If you wanted to set yourself apart, you'd be a fan of Kobe AND Lebron. Then you'd be a guy who just appreciates great players doing great things.

Durant is shooting just under 40% from the field, under 27% from 3, with 3.5 TOs per game. His scoring still looks good, and he's rebounding well, but he's not been an efficient scorer. Astute observers are noting that he is NOT playing well, SO FAR this postseason. I fully expect that to not be the case throughout the playoffs, except for the fact that if it keeps happening in this series, he may not make it out of the 1st round.

And I didn't say Memphis isn't good, to the contrary, they're one of 3 or 4 teams that are just a notch below the top 2 teams in the West, and capable of beating them if they play well. Memphis IS playing well. Kevin Durant, so far, is NOT.

Was I saying this from 2007-10? I'm sure you have a point here, but I'd say it isn't relevant to the discussion. Because I haven't said ONE thing about Lebron winning 4 regular season MVPs. Oh wait, I just did! Ha!!

Have to admit I was pretty upset. Not at the fact you try to discredit LeBron as a great individual but more the fact you would knowingly try to wash away what Kobe has done like it was nothing. Again Im probably in the wrong and Im sure that takes some kind of upper echelon personality trait that I just wasn't privy too growing up. My wife and kids disagree though.

Oh it does, it actually helps OUR argument. Dude tried hard to bring a championship to Cleveland. You can criticize his ability to accomplish that, but you have to do it in the context of the talent that ownership was able to put around him (hint: it wasn't much). Despite that, he STILL took Cleveland to an NBA Finals, where he lost to one of the decades most dominant teams. You can criticize him and call him a liar for falling to deliver on his "promise" to bring a title to Cleveland, but you would look a little pathetic doing so (hint: you do).

And now that he's played in 3 straight NBA Finals, 4 total, and has won the last 2 with 2 Finals MVPs, you come off looking like a hater in this thread, especially since you obviously care enough about this subject to leave 1,000 comments on this page.
