    This mentality makes so little sense. Why does he owe Cleveland a fucking thing, especially after the shitty teams they put around him? He never chose to play there, didn't choose to be born there. He made the choice many other talented people make and moved somewhere that he wanted to be. The team made a shit ton of money off of his efforts, they should be thankful and move on instead of whining. It's a fucking business and he made a business decision that he thought was in his best interest. Big deal. People love players like Elway, Eli Manning, etc who actually forced teams not to draft them. LeBron played out his contract, signed one extension, then chose to move out and try somewhere else. I don't get the hate, unless you're a bitter irrational Cleveland fan.

    Now, he did it in a totally dick way, no argument there. "The Decision" was awful.

    Honestly, if dude was just honest from the beginning and told the Cavs GM that he wasn’t signing with them then everything would have been fine. If he just signed with the Heat w/o the “decision” and they simply entered the season as an aspiring championship trio then it wouldn’t be a big deal. But the “decision” plus the “rock star” intro of the 3 with the stage and everything plus the promise of countless championships was just over the top and ridiculous. I mean seriously, who do they think they are? Even the Lakers, Hollywood, home of the egomanaic celebrities and stars doesn't do shit like this.

    Let's get to game 1 of the finals though. So far, the Heat is doing much better than I was expecting. Others actually stepping up early to give them a solid lead. If they keep it up, they might be able to steal one in OKC. Westbrook feeling like Kobe again chucking up as much shots as he can.

    the only reason the heats are doing better is battier had a nice streak. everything else is pretty similar. thunder's 3pp is low at 28% and they'll most likely be making a streak as well

    well now the difference is getting clearer. lots of turnovers and westbrook is having a bad streak but again prolly will pick up in the second half

    Like I said, the others are stepping up early (Chalmers & Battier) instead of disappearing like they usually do. Then the best Spoelstra could hope for is that Lebron can finish strong and Wade wakes up to get the win. The Heat will always be the same team, relying on Bron and Wade playmaking, the x factor will be how much load they'd have to carry themselves and whether the others could step-up. They likely won't continue it in the second half so Wade really needs to get his act together.

    man, this Bron vs Durant matchup is so fucking awesome. i can't remember ever seeing this before - the two best players in the league going directly at each other on both sides of the floor, in the Finals?

    Bosh being too 3-pt happy out there. Spoelstra should at least set it up as a corner 3 where Bosh actually makes it.
