This is beautifully written. I put it in the Finals thread, but it's honestly so good that I think any fan of the game of basketball will thoroughly enjoy this read.

It's a Lil lengthy but stick with it, it's totally worth it, and he ties everything together masterfully.

Edit: I've lost a lot of respect for LeBron after reading what D Wade said to him. He has responded fuging HORRIBLY!! I'm telling you guys... This is a must read

I'm a Heat fan and I agree with everything said in this article !

I'm on my phone.. Youre probably pulling up the mobile version. See if you can find a good link from your CPU at home. It's an article on ESPN written by Bill Simmons.

Actual title: It's time for LeBrondown, Part II

I believe they are talking about the incredibly small font size from that article. The other one I read from that site was the same.

it's coming from the link, so it's not your phone. (I don't think)

When the Heat win, D Wade is the man and more "clutch".

When the Heat lose, its King's fault.

LeBron just might be the GOAT one day.

Actually liked the article. It really lays out the impact of the decision and the makeup of the team. Bill doesn't flip flop, D.Wade is the heart of the team. I mean he won a title with the team already, its his.

And Lebron doesn't need to be MJ, he isn't MJ, he won't be MJ. Lebron is Lebron, and everyone tunes in to see what he does next. Thats what makes game 5 so interesting. The big story is 'how will Lebron respond'

KT I'm not trying to start anything, but you have such a blatant man-crush on LeBron that I don't think you have ever said anything but good things about him. It kind of makes what you have to say regarding LeBron hard to take seriously.

In relation to the article. Damn good article and I pretty much agreed with 95% of it.

Any time someone starts a post with "I'm not trying to start anything," they're trying to start something...

As Simmons alludes to, LeBron is probably the greatest athlete the NBA has seen, but the greatest NBA players of all time had a competitive fire about them. They wanted to beat the best players in the league, not join forces with each other to win rings. They had a "killer instinct" that helped them close out games and opponents, not letting a clearly inferior opponent crawl back into games to make a series 2-2 when it should be a 4-0 sweep.

LeBron COULD be the greatest NBA player of all time not named Jordan, he just doesn't care to live up to that potential, and that is what makes him such a polarizing figure.
