"The field" includes 3 point attempts.  Lebron is shooting 78 percent in his last 47 attempts.  His efficiency is incredible.

I like DWade's comment about him:

He's off the planet right now. He's not even the best basketball player on the planet. He's surpassed the planet. He's somewhere else. He's playing phenomenal.

And he turns 29 in December.  We're getting at least five more years of this.

Can't wait for him to go back to Cleveland and play with Kyrie Irving.

Still never grasped the reason people hate on him. No rape charges, no assaults, no drug charges, not a dirty player, incredibly nice, and still one of the most hated players in the NBA.

My only gripe with him was the flopping. People always defended this by saying, "Oh everyone does this" which is simply not true. He already gets the "SuperStar treatment" from the refs so why bother? On top of that, he'll act and carry on so much with the flopping it would sometimes get people flagrant fouls as well.

/Just play the game the right way

I would agree that the hate's been excessive. But there is actually a reason; it's the way he left Cleveland, and celebrated his initial arrival in Miami. Badly handled, through and through.

It might just be time to concede, though, that the statute of limitations has run out on that for everybody who's not a Cavs fan. Young guys, especially sheltered younger guys who have heard nothing except how awesome they are since their early teens, make mistakes. He made his, he learned from it, and he hasn't repeated it. And it's not like it was even that big a mistake in the first place.

You really got that butthurt about him finding a way to get millions donated to charity by announcing his decision on tv? He didn't propose the idea, but he found a way for it greatly help people who needed it. Yea, what a douchebag.

I'd add he also seems like a decent family man.

BTW, the answer is:

1)  Everybody hates Goliath.
2)  It's apparently a crime to decide that - after years of conducting yourself as a professional both on and off the court - you'd rather play for a  very good team in Miami as opposed to a mediocre one in Cleveland.
3)  Every arena in the country treated LeBron with kid gloves, because every fanbase thought they had a shot of getting him.  That's finished now.

/The actual "Decision" could have been handled better, but a clumsy annoucement that raises $ for charity seems like a weak reason to hate on a guy
//I was more annoyed by his "All the haters have to still live their boring lives tomorrow" meltdown after the Dallas series.
///If Jordan had lived in the internet era the less pleasant parts of his image would have come to light well before they did.

Now that we seemed to have made progress on the hated "begs the question" lets move on to fewer v. less.

Use "fewer" with countable, individual things, and "less" with uncountable amounts, volumes, etc. So: "I should drink less coffee," but "I should eat fewer doughnuts." per the NYT

Yeah, I think that was mostly a result of being in "the bubble" and being persuaded by his handlers.

We'll see how things ultimately pan out, but when his career is said and done, he might supplant Jordan as the best basketball player ever.

He's never going to have 6 championships.

And, that will be the end of the argument forever.

I mean... why not?

He probably won't.  But I wouldn't be certain.  Besides, Jordan had better teams around him than Lebron's ever had.

And why does Lebron have to hit 6 rings?  Bill Russell has 11, and yet Jordan can be the best of all time at 6.
 
2013-02-10 01:46:51 AM  
If Lebron keeps up the crazy efficiency scoring, and wins a few more titles when he goes back to Cleveland, he might possibly eclipse Jordan as the greatest.

I think the part where he went on national TV and dumped the team that drafted him to team up with the player most people thought of as his closest competition at the time put a sour taste in peoples mouths. I know for me I do not see him the same. I felt what he did was a rotten thing to do to the community that raised him, and the people who watched and helped him grow up. It was very selfish, and I think lots of people only think of him as the spoiled brat that was a part of The Decision.

I'm a Celtics fan, and I hated him - mostly for reasons already covered - <i>until</i> he absolutely destroyed Boston in Game 6 last year.  At some point the hate makes way for sheer appreciation.  He was completely unstoppable and everyone knew it.

That's my gripe with him too. Are you a Bulls fan as well? Man, Miami had some major flops against us.

/Don't hate LeBron or Miami
/The decision was dumb and egotistical, so I didn't watch it. I don't hold a grudge about that, but then again, I'm not from Ohio.

The only reason he was ever a cavalier to begin with is because they sucked the most before they got him. He leaves, they go right back to the bottom of the barrel. They should be thankful to him for letting them have a taste of success.
