#6 LeBron James

429 posts in this topic

Heat trailed by 27 midway thru the 3rd tonight in Cleveland, but come back and win by 3 in Cleveland. LeBron finishes with 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists for his 4th triple double of the season and the 36th of his career. They finish their road trip 5-0 and return back home to face the Pistons on Friday. 24 straight wins, only Wilt Chamberlain knows what this feels like.

Nice comeback.

What is the push down thing he's doing to the crowd in Cleveland?

There’s a reason the producers behind televised baseball games cut away from the idiots that decide to run onto the field during a game – the people that jump into the action are morons, and their actions shouldn’t be rewarded with 15 seconds of fame on cable TV.

FOX Sports Ohio shouldn’t be blamed for being unable to cut away quickly when a fan ran on the court on Wednesday night’s Heat/Cavaliers game, wearing a t-shirt that read “We Miss You” on the front and “LeBron 2014” during the Miami Heat’s astonishing comeback win, and don’t blame us for giving this dum-dum more exposure, but it bears repeating that running onto a court, field, rink, or stage is about as stupid a thing as a fan can do.

That said, here’s a LeBron James fan rushing onto the court in an attempt to sway LBJ to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers as a free agent in the summer of 2014:

(The punk didn’t even have the guts to actually stand around LeBron James to talk up his shirt.)

Since last year, it’s been rumored that LeBron has been considering a move back to the team he ran with from 2003 to 2010, the NBA squad that is closest to his Akron, Ohio home. It’s a legitimate hope – because of luxury tax concerns and the advancing age of LBJ’s cohort in Dwyane Wade, it’s possible that James may want to move to a team with more potential to see him through the tail-end of his prime. The Cavaliers have been smartly hoarding salary cap space in anticipation of the off chance that James wants to come back to his home to northern Ohio and look the part of the returning hero to play alongside point guard wunderkind Kyrie Irving.

Using what looks like shoe polish to write a “message” on a white t-shirt tucked into a pair of khaki pants, in the hopes of influencing someone who could be a free agent 18 months from now, is the wrong way to go about this particular brand of persuasion. And, lest we forget, any attempt to make yourself part of the story by running onto a court/field/pitch/rink/gridiron is as dumb as movements come. LeBron James is well aware that Cleveland, and even combatant Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, would like to have him back. The Utah Jazz would also like to have him. So would the Portland Trail Blazers, if LBJ wanted to accept the mid-level exception. This is a guy that 29 NBA teams will pitch to, should he decide to opt-out of his contract. This is a talent that doesn’t need convincing.

This is also a game that doesn’t need interrupting. If you are not part of the lucky and hard-working few to be granted privilege to an NBA court during an NBA, then stay off that court. The game is lesser for your presence, and your impact will probably flow in an unintended direction.

Like, perhaps, driving LeBron James to the Utah Jazz in 2014.

Lebrons just fuging with us now...

It's like Miami is challenging themselves each game to see how much of a fug they won't give until the 4th quarter rolls around. Maybe they're conditioning themselves for those crucial 4th quarter situations for when the playoffs roll around or something.

Part of it is they are getting everybody's best punch.

People forget, no matter how sorry the team, these are still NBA players, the best basketball players in the WORLD

The past 7 games teams have gotten off to big leads (hitting everything early) and the Heat are taking it on the chin. In the 2nd half of these games (primarily the 4th quarter) they are turning up the defensive intensity and throwing haymakers to the point teams are getting blown out late.

One look at that .gif and you can see how much fun those guys are having. Not losing since the Super Bowl was played? LeBron and gang are having a blast right now.

Laker Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Gail Goodrich from the 71-72 Lakers can do like the 72 Dolphins and pop the champagne tonight. Their streak remains untouched. post-36-0-26387500-1364438925_thumb.jpg

I bought that Touched By Gold DVD KG. One of the best NBA related docs I've ever seen. Streak is over at 27 games. Nothing wrong with coming in 2nd to the Big Dipper....

Hell of a steak by the Heat. As a Lakers fan I'm obviously glad it's over. Still I don't think any team is beating the Heat in a seven game series when the Playoffs start....
