Re: Lebron, I've said before that I don't feel compelled to go around the Internet defending him, but I am surprised about the depth of the hatred that his detractors have for him. Ok, so that "decision" was stupid, and I get the personality flaws, but he's no different from other top athletes that aren't afraid to display their personalities. Egotistic, cocky, arrogant, entitled - you can say the same thing about Kobe, AI, MJ, Bird, Reggie Miller and Barkley, just to name a few. Yet these guys, while not universally beloved, don't inspire the same hatred

no you can't say that about Reggie Miller because he's my favourite player

plus he's basically an anti Lebron

You can't say Reggie is egotistic, cocky and arrogant? I guess you never saw your favorite player play... confused.gif

No hate on Reggie, I specifically picked his name and the others to prove my point - those guys are all admired by a lot of people, including me. But they aren't despised as much for showing the same qualities (well I'm sure Reggie still is in New York)

I think he's being specious

How the flying fuck did this dude drop 51 on the Rockets...?  Averaged 9.9 ppg going into the game last night...

the first hoop is sweet

and all of them are truly good, once his confidence was up there was no stopping him

Yeah I don't understand why this guy gets so much hate puzzled.gif

Every player does it, lebron is not above average in being a dirty player. He flops too much, but that's about it.

How he left Cleveland wasn't classy at all, but face it fans are big assholes and they will stab you in the back

once when you fall. He made a good choice for himself, he executed it badly but w/e


I only root vs his teams because since he came to the league he was so hyped and

favored and so heavily marketed by the NBA it made me puke. I felt like NBA was trying too hard to sell

him as next Jordan(which he is and lived up to, so grats for him). It made me happy whenever he lost,

because I like to root for the Davids(besides that phony uptight david stern) and i was like yeahhh in yo face NBA!

I feel like I can make a montage just like that for any modern "superstar" player (except maybe Rose and KD), if I had as much free time as your average neurosurgeon prodigy

Meh. I don't dislike lebron. I guess I might even admire him. He was immature with the decision but he's matured a lot more since the lost to the mavericks. Dude works really hard at his game and has improved upon his weaknesses so much it's become strengths. He never used to have a post game or a three and now he's very good at them. He's also a lot of fun to watch and I honestly don't see there being a large referee bias in favor of him despite all these conspiracy theories. For example refs almost never call fouls for him against hibbert so much that he had to develop a floater just for him.

Been a So FL resident for 15 years and a Heat fan almost all of those years. The Alonzo Mourning (schoolmate and class act) teams won me over, and I've stayed around for the ride ever since. Have a share of a pool of season tickets through my company since 2003, although this year I chose not to participate for the first time since then.

Alonzo was so underrated. or at least as much as a HOF player can be underrated. When you think about he went up against almost nightly, how he was undersized in all those matchups and yet still kicked ass, intimidating presence. In today's league he'd probably average about 30 pts a game. Such a nice guy too.
