The fact that King at 22 years old was able to take a franchise that had never been to or been back to a Finals since was and is a major accomplishment. And you're moving the goal posts as if winning a title in Cleveland is what he was expected to do 4 years removed from HS.

Kobe at 22 was not carrying teams the way LeBron was expected to, his 2000 NBA Finals #'s at age 22....

15.6 points per game
4.3 rebounds per game
4.2 assists per game
44.2 minutes per game
41.25 field goal percentage

Not impressive at all, he even had a 2 point game and an 8 point game in the series. He was a NON FACTOR. But with Shaq averaging nearly 40 points a game and 17 rebounds, Kobe's shitty Finals did not stop the Lakers from winning. Kobe could afford to play like poo and his team still win pretty handidly. And you Laker fans BRAG on this as one of Kobe's rings. LOL.

Kobe Bryant has never had a triple double in a playoff or Finals game in his entire career. Let me repeat that again, Kobe Bryant has never had a triple double in a playoff or Finals game in his entire career. LeBron posted a triple double in his very first NBA playoff game (something only Magic has done) and in his last (the last player to post a triple double in a Finals close out game since James Worthy & Tim Duncan).



Look I'm not going to sit here and bash LeBron and praise Kobe. This is LBJ's thread and I will respect that. LBJ is a great player, but as I've always said, I would take a prime Kobe over a prime LeBron. Now that is only my opinion and I really don't care if people happen to disagree. However, you guys are HORRIBLE when it comes to looking at this without bias. During that Kobe 2000 finals Jalen Rose intentionally tripped Kobe Bryant when he was shooting a jumper and caused Kobe to severely sprain his ankle. Kobe was VERY limited for a couple of games afterwards. Granted, Kobe's game 1 wasn't super impressive (38 MIN, 6-13 FG, 0-2 3FG, 2-2 FT, 3 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 2 BLK, 2 TO, 14 PTS), but he didn't need to do much as it was a blowout due to Shaq's dominance on offense and Kobe's dominance on defense (Guarding Miller almost exclusively, Bryant would force the Pacer guard in to one of the worst shooting performances in NBA Finals history. Miller would shoot only 1-16 in the game, for a career playoff-low 7 points). I think we can all agree that both are great players, it's just sad to see how many anti-Kobe people there are despite him being a top 10 player of all time.

LeBron closed out his Finals last year with 1.

What we've learned is glamorized volume shooters don't win championships when they dont have an advantage in the paint (2 7 footers or a HOF big man commanding double & triple teams).

Tell me who the 2 7 footers are or who the HOF big man for the Heat is?

To this day Smush Parker got beef with Kobe and even earlier this season they were taking public shots at each other. You will never see something like that with LeBron. He makes players BETTER not just uses them to pad stats or rebound his bricks.

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.

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.
