LOL, if LeBron pissed Brian Windhorst off, he REALLY farked up.

Most of the so-called "experts" on ESPN are complete morans. Washed-up ex-players who are one-sport wonders, wannabees who have never actually watched sporting events, but are good at repeating all the cliches they've ever heard, and a number of people who would, if there were no ESPN, be lucky to be weathermen in a small market tv statiom.

Brian Windhorst is an Akron native who went to the same high school (SVSM) as LeBron. He's covered him for over a decade now, first with the Akron Beacon Journal, then the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and now for ESPN. I'd say he's got a pretty good beat on LeBron, and all-in-all is a really good reporter. CSB - he was in the hospital with double pneumonia a few years and was still reporting breaking news.

There's no "J" in your game but there is a "J" in jealous, which is what you are. Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. And you're the reason teachers are paid too much. Can't handle the heat? Then get your hand off the hot plate and wave goodbye to your credibility. Mark Jackson just told you to man up.

As sad as my life is according to LeBron, I have as many NBA rings as he has.

LeBron is better than Barkley or Patrick Ewing? Get outta here.

Made perfect sense to the rest of us.

Lebron is a big baby and needs someone to give him guidance, his whore of a mother sure isnt doing that. Where is Lou Gosset, jr or Morgan Freeman when you need them!??!?!?

ESPN made their bed, they can lie in it. So what if one lowly beat minion speaks truth? He'll be looking for work tomorrow. The gadflys and fluffers at ESPN, Stewart Scott I'm looking at you, have to live with the bitter pill. I hope he chokes on it, just like *cough* King James.

Let's replace the comments that have been made about Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks since the 2006 Finals collapse with LeBron James and the Heat's 2011 collapse and see if anyone notices!

Anyone?

There is no "I" in Mark Jackson, but there is a "Jack", as in "jack of all trades, master of many, many more". Mark Jackson is the greatest announcer to ever play this game. That's why Mark Jackson talks to himself in the third-person. There goes that man. Mama.

There was a time, before the internet, when newspapers, writers and television networks had only their objectivity and truth to hang a hat on. The world was a better place then.

The bottom line is the bottom line.

ESPN has slowly been turning into the MTV of sports analysis, caring much more about idiotic trends, puffery, and on-air personalities than actual analysis. They still do their fair share of good reporting (Mike and Mike, E:60 [though the black and white 'conference scenes' are maddening]) and hold claim to the best sports show on TV (PTI), but it was only a couple years ago I would sink my fat ass into a recliner and veg out to 2.5 episodes of Sportscenter - now I can't even make it through half of one. And I don't think I've changed THAT much as a sports fan.

Just because Windhorst is a slender 360 lbs doesn't mean you have to use headlines to poke fun at him, subby.

Just kidding. He is a fat piece of shiat who thought following LeBron to Miami would be his big break. Apparently all his gargling of LeBron's bullshiat got him was early onset diabetes.

I personally do not know LeBron, so I will not comment on what type of person he really is away from the cameras. That being said, LeBron needs to spend some of his money on someone who understands PR and maybe someone who can also be a mentor to him.

LeBron comes across as a spoiled, self centered brat, his exploits last summer and this most recent press conference do nothing to improve his image. A little humility will go a long way in LeBron's case.

LeBron has been surrounded by 'yes' men his entire adult life. i don't think he's a bad guy, but at the current moment in time, he is very clearly unable to acknowledge criticism.

When he played the same passive game verse the Celtics last year (the infamous 'quit game'), his response? "I've spoiled people with my play". Someone, it was the fans' fault for him playing so crappy, in his eyes. Then he went to Miami to "team up with people who wouldn't wilt under the pressure".

This year, in the press conferences, everytime that he'd mention his faults, he'd say, "you have to defend better" or "you have to be more assertive". He didn't say "I" have to be more assertive. He was talking in 4th person, to avoid directly taking direct blame. Then he kept lumping in "the Miami Heat" along with him, as the target of hate, not wanting to admit, they were really only hating him, personally.

As LeBron might say, you could be right about the literal, rather than idiomatic, interpretation of Cuban's statement; but tomorrow you will turn your underwear inside out - again! - and go off to your McJob, while Cuban will be lying in his bed with his money, hot wife and O'Brien trophy.

Yeah, right. They havent been objective or just reported the truth since walter winchell, sure they could report the truth but he proved that the public would eat up a half truth and make a name along with a lot of money for themselves so why tell the truth? The press has had an objective since the late 50s so quit with this idiotic objectivity and truth BS.

The point is, espn has always been about entertainment and now you want credibility?

Don't forget about the "E"!

From ESPN.com:

1) What does ESPN stand for? It doesn't stand for anything but the story is this. When ESPN started in 1979, we were the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (thus, ESPN). However, the full name was dropped in February 1985 when the company adopted a new corporate name --- ESPN, Inc - and a new logo. Based in Bristol, CT., ESPN is 80 percent owned by ABC, Inc., which is an indirect subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. The Hearst Corporation holds the remaining 20 percent interest in ESPN

I have never seen you post a comment on Fark that wasn't completely and totally incorrect. Your consistency is truly impressive. I'd pay to fly you to Vegas and take you to a sportsbook just so I could bet against whoever you put money on. Read Mark Ketch's comment for yet one more example of what a complete and total moran you are.
