My point exactly, Lebrick "The Queen" James.

For all his MVP's and accolades the guy still had to go to anther superstars team because he couldn't handle being the "Guy".

When you're an 18 year old kid & proclaim yourself "King James" it kinda rubs people the wrong way. Throw in "The Decision" along with 0 NBA Championships in 9 years & it's understandable.

After 9 pro seasons LeBron has an Olympic Gold Medal, Olympic Bronze Medal, & 0 NBA Championships.

After 9 pro seasons Michael Jordan had an NCAA Championship, 2 Olympic Gold Medals, 3 NBA Championships, & walked away from the game because he had nothing to prove & became bored with dominating everyone.

Michael Jordan only played 11 full years in Chicago, yet he won 6 NBA Championships, 6 Finals MVPs, & 5 NBA MVPs.

Michael Jordan at age 27 had 1 MVP, and wasnt good enough to lead his team to the Finals. None of the things you listed, "the decision", callin yourself King is a crime or big enough deal to warrant the hate he gets.The fact we have to compare him to Jordan, the GOAT to make his accompliments seem human, says it all!

No, it's not a crime. Yes, it is a big deal. If you don't want people being critical of you when you fall short then don't go around proclaiming yourself the king & "the chosen one". The decision was the dumbest PR stunt I've ever seen by a bball player. You hold a national broadcast, in your home state, at a boys & girls club full of children who idolize you, just to tell them you're leaving?

At age 27 Michael Jordan had only played 5 seasons as a professional. Not to mention he had absolutely no help whatsoever. Those Bulls teams were talent depleted. And the Celtic/Piston teams of that era were far better than the Pacers, who will beat Miami.

But LeBron's age defense is fading fast. He has 8 more years to win 6 NBA Championships & 6 NBA Finals MVPs to keep pace with MJ. People don't compare him to MJ because he's in his class. They compare him to MJ because he is the self-proclaimed chosen one. He brought it upon himself.

At age 27 Jordan played with Scottie Pippen and was being coached by Phil Jackson. Both Larry Bird and Magic had 8 rings between them and were considered better players. Jordan was called a selfish ball hog and a choker against the Pistons. Not much different than LBJ today. LeBron calling himself King rubs you the wrong way, to others it inspires and makes them proud. There are millions of young kids who look up to him and view themselves as kings as well, is that horrible?

Perhaps it would be better if LeBron gave himself a nickname that was a ripoff of the Kill Bill movies ;)

So you're calling Michael Jordan a choker because he failed to win a NBA Championship at 27 with a team of scrubs, rookie Scottie Pollen, & unproven head coach? Interesting. Michael Jordan hit the game winning shot of the '82 NCAA Championship as a 19 year old freshman. He was clutch from the beginning.

LeBron has done nothing but choke his entire career. He is a phenomenal talent but he doesn't have what it takes mentally to take over in the big game.

Or better yet, go on trial for raping a white lady. That seems to be more acceptable than breaking away from Slavemaster Dan Gilbert.

Heat and Pacers in another close game. I would personally like to see the Pacers win but I'm not confident they can pull it off.
