    He also failed at WINNING a title. I think that could added to the list of what other players might want to do.

  • Rob

    Yea the whole team failed, key word TEAM! I love how people just target one person! U guys are lame hate LBJ but his name and attention is always focused on him smh.

  • anonymous

    Forget about Lebron. This track is nutsssssss

    The Cavs better retire his jersey..

  • S_kemp

    Cant stand the guy but anyone who says he isnt the best in the league is crazy.his speed/strength/athleticism is ridiculous.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    “his speed/strength/athleticism is ridiculous.”
    Not as ridiculous as his jumper, his post game or his instincts in closing.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Cleveland Bron >>>>>>>> MIA Bron.
    Also to the clown that thinks Bron still can’t shoot, ummm… dude was the 3rd best mid-range shooter percentage wise in the entire L.
    Go ask the bulls and celtics about ” his instincts in closing”, whatever the hell that means.

  • Riggs

    go ask miami on his instincts in closing.

  • Paps

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jahmai

    Well for all the hate LeBron is receiving, I’m sure as hell going to miss him, for god knows how long. Super dope mix. Thanks for putting it up Slam.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I have to preface this with, LeBron is the ‘best’ currently playing, BUT those highlights are the worse he has had yet. Shows how good his past years have been I suppose. He doesn’t look quite the same as he has in the past. Maybe its just the jersey throwing me off but these highlights aren’t better than 10 other dudes had this year. He needs that chip on his shoulder in order to impress me. I wanna see him know he’s the best and it felt like a season of defering and waiting instead of taking what is his. And finally i’d take Kobe still. Is he currently better no, but i’d take his skills and mind set over LeBrons.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    If the Heat won the finals everyone would be saying LeBron did the exact opposite Lakeshow. — For instance, if Chicago was the finals, all we would be hearing is how great LeBron is. 6 games has totally changed everyone perception of this whole season.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    He didn’t win the last what, 8 years tho. He looked better all those years. We’ve said it time and time again but until dude gets a couple more things (real post moves ‘not just bully ball’, a go to move like a step back or fade away jumper or a crossover pull up) he is not, in my eyes, going to be all he can be. He isn’t improving on anything anymore. Not physically or mentally. (His jumper is improved but he doesn’t use it affectively imo.)

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Well he definitely has to work on a lot of his game I’m not saying that. To say he hasn’t improved because of one series is just f*ckin ridiculous though. He murdered Boston and Chicago Put up monster numbers while sharing possessions. He shot the best % of his career from mid range. Was actually one of the most efficient and successful post players in the league to go along with being the most efficient player overall. But he struggled against Dallas, so he’s a failure.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I guess i need Superstars to be killers and Bron is not in the top 20 of killers in the league. I know they don’t have advance stats for how much of a killer you are, but D-Wade, Kobe, Melo, Pierce, R.Allen, Dirk, Rose, Paul, Williams, are a few that all possess this killer attitude where they take pride in defeating another team, more than anything else. I just don’t see that in Bron. Not that he never has it, but he has to be ‘HOT’ in order to have this mindset. Is he a failure… Your an idiot if you think that. Does he not have the same mental edge as other greats before him? I think he doesn’t.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    They do lol — Dirk, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen with Carmelo behind them last time I checked it. — The mindset thing I think can be learned but your right, he doesn’t seem to have it unless he is already in some kind of a zone. If Wade could get him to fall in love with beating anyone at anything then maybe they can get that to transfer to the playoffs. I thought you were basically calling him a failure. my fault

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I guess sometimes I wonder to myself, “Does LeBron know how good he is?” And the fact that i’m always saying that pisses the hell outta me. I feel like dude is waiting for something instead of seizing what is his. Carpe diem Bron! lol. I ain’t no hater. I just think for how great he is he has some flaws that I personally can’t stand. Partially cause they are fixable, and partially cause I don’t know if he cares enough to change.

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    LONG… LIVE… THE KING.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    LMAO Philo. Shuddup already! JP, never stop that. NBK, And yeah the whole no Ring thing does play a part i’m not going to act like it doesn’t. And I think it should play a part. They could have (should have) won it all this year and didn’t. I know dude will win a ring, but i’m curious how long it will take and how it happens. On his terms or on (the killer) Wades terms. Doesn’t make him not good or a failure but he might be missing something that the greats have had.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Wade wasn’t a killer against Chicago or Boston, he was LeBron James against Dallas in those series’ — So i also have a problem with Wade getting a reputation opposite LeBron when really they are in the same boat. You can bring up the ring thing if you want, but nobody really had Miami winning the title, most people had LA, with Miami falling just short. SO as far as preseason predictions and stuff go, Miami finished right at expectation. Losing in the finals is falling short of overachieving, which IMO is not failing. — Plus LeBron is 26, and ringless. Just like Michael Jordan was, Shaq, Hakeem, Oscar Robertson and the vast majority of all-time greats.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Which is why i say i know he will win eventually, he’s too talented and with a good set of talent around him now he would have to try not to win a ring. Your right about Wade, but how i see it is he is always a killer he just doesn’t always win the game for you or play well. When LeBron is in Killer mode its like “wow he is being a killer” instead of “he’s back to his old ways.” And Wade has been a Finals MVP, so he is proven. LeBron isn’t proven yet. He’s just phenomenally good at bball. I have a stigma towards LeBron not hatred or dislike.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    That finals MVP should have an asterisk next to it, just like 3 of Kobe’s titles. The Shaq asterisk is what it is, because without it, two players in the last decade are being supremely overvalued. Like those who argue Kobe is a top 5 player. I am not saying they aren’t great players, or all-timers, but really Shaq does not get enough credit. Especially for the ring on Dwyane’s finger, which stemmed from a Shaq led run up until the last 4 games of the year. (The 4 where Dwyane put on a cape and spandex and did an impression of Bruce Wyane. <———– (see what I did there?) Really though, what Wade did too Dallas in 06 was breathtaking and amazing, but so is what LeBron did to Detroit in 07. Both showed a supreme ability to be a killer

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    You know why Shaq doesn’t get enough credit? Because he wasn’t the most skilled player when he was with Kobe or Dwade. Kobe and Dwade or far superior at the sport of basketball then Shaq was. Shaq was the MDE not because of his skill set but because of 330lbs and being 7’2″. People don’t like this argument because of blah blah blah reason, but its the truth. And i’m so tired of this ‘asterisk’ idea. Who else gets asterisks? Shaq better have 4. Pippen better have 6. Magic should have a couple; this list doesn’t end. It’s either no asterisk or everyone gets one. LeBron will have an asterisk when he wins one with DWade also…

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I do like that subtle reference to my Email btw lol.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    The reason Magic doesn’t have an asterisk is because he was the best player on every single title team he was a part of. Kareem scored buckets, but those were Magic’s teams. Shaq definitely is not nearly as skilled as basically anyone that has ever played in the league. But he is top 4 most dominant players ever. The most dominant player since Jordan. Kobe? not anywhere close. Shaq left Kobe for Dwyane (a worse player) and still won a title. I mean its pretty obvious who was “better” – Scottie doesn’t need asterisks because he isn’t overrated. Nobody says Scottie was a top 10 player or anything absurd like that. I in the last month have read from multiple people that Kobe is a top 5 all-time player and Wade is already the 3rd best SG of all time. All because of titles they won with Shaq the most dominant player in the NBA at the time. If Kobe just had his 2 titles in which he NEEDED another all star bigman he would not even sniff the greatest ever conversation. I have always said, there are a number of players that would have won multiple rings playing next to Shaq in the NBA during his dominance.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Yeah Kobe got a worse player in Pau and still won 1 more than Shaq, (maybe more). W/O Kobe and DWade Shaq doesn’t win either. No asterisks in my world. Just winners and Losers. and a couple in betweens. Bron’s currently an in between but he will be a winner when its all said and done.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Fair enough. My argument about Shaq is that he would have won a title with any of the SG’s he played with. Penny (the next Jordan *GASP* came in with Shaq) Kobe turned into (the next Jordan *GASP* playing next to Shaq) Dwyane Wade won a title and became (Jordan’s “Air” Apparent *GASP* because of a title he won with Shaq). Nobody made Shaq, he came into the league and immediately transformed every team he ever played on into a title contender. (well until he got too old to be dominant) You can’t say that about anyone in the league. The closest is LeBron with what he did in Cleveland.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    would have won titles* – ANd he also would have won titles with other players, like McGrady, Kidd, Iverson. I just wish we could have seen what a frontcourt of Dirk and Shaq would have been like. This is way off topic lol but I would love to see that combination.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Agreed. And agreed. wait what, that was boring lol. Listen i’m a huge Shaq fan, your not going to get me to say anything bad about Diesel. I just can’t discredit Kobe or DWade. They played just as vital a role as Shaq imo. Also i don’t think prime Vince or B-Roy or Joe Johnson are winning with Shaq. Maybe T-Mac prime could have. Obviously i’m going a little off timeline here, but its not just Shaq with some All star SG. DWADE and Kobe are Top 5 SG ever. Thats fact in my mind. DWade is barely in that tier, but i think he still has allot left to show us.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Wade isn’t even 30, his all-time spot is still up in the air IMO. Guys have had similar dominant stretches, Dwyane Wade’s career numbers 25ppg, 5rpg, 6apg on 48% from the field. Lets just grab a random wing who was very good, but isn’t in the all-time discussion…..Bernard King, 24ppg, 6rpg, 3apg – those are pretty similar numbers. The difference comes from help defense numbers really, a block and almost 2 steals a game for Wade, with a steal and no blocks a game for King. The PER of king for his career is 19.1, and Wade’s is 25.1 (Wade is top 10 all time in PER) – But they are similar none the less. The only gaping difference in their careers is Wade’s ring – which can be more attributed to Shaq then anything else. Unless ofcourse your one of thse people that values a whole entire 82 game season plus 16+ playoff games based only on the last 4 or so.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I don’t think a Kidd or Iverson Shaq combo would have worked out to the same success. Kidd was Ason at the time and Iverson wouldn’t have dumped it to the post ever i don’t think, but thats allot of speculation.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Got to be honest haven’t seen allot of Bernard King. Those numbers though aren’t as similar to me tho. The 2 steals and a block is huge and the 3 more assists is the difference between a good passer and a mediocre to poor passer.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    lol who knows. Iverson shore seemed down to pass in All Star games when he had teammates worth passing too. He was always top 10 in assists when he was playing with Carmelo. either way your right its just speculation. That’s just how I feel about Shaq, and why he should be considered top 5 all time, and get more credit for every single one of his rings the he does. Well actually Phil Jackson is underrated in a way too….or is he ov errated? Phil Jackson is his own paradox.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    King wasn’t a SG/PG he was a SG/SF that’s why he had slightly higher rebounding numbers. I just did it for comparisons sake, Wade still has a lot of achieving to do to be a top 5 SG ever…IMO. Jerry West 27 6 5 – Rick Barry 24 6 4 – Allen Iverson 26 6 3 – John Havlicek 20 6 5 – Michael Jordan (Not Needed) are all clearly better IMO. If you include Oscar Robertson as a SG there is another. I would say Wade has a great chance to get past Iverson and maybe Rick Barry/John Havlicek before it’s all said and done.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I don’t put Oscar as a Sg. He’s got to be a PG. He had the ball in his hands as much or more than every PG in the league. I think Wade is already better than Havelicek. Equal to Barry. Just under Iverson. Not as good as MJ or Kobe obviously. I’m more curious where LeBron is going to be on the all time SF list. It’s wayyyyy to hard to say now. But theres a couple guys for sure ahead of him now.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Havlicek has 8 Championships. He had a season where he averaged 28.9PPG, 9.0RPG, & 7.5APG – 1974 NBA Finals MVP – 13x All Star – 4x All-NBA 1st Team – 7x All-NBA 2nd Team – 5x Defensive 1st Team – 3x Defensive 2nd Team – Ranked 17 All time by Slam in 09, 13 All Time in Bill Simmons book of Basketball. Dwyane Wade is not even in a John Havlicek conversation. not even approaching the driveway.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Unfortunately i’m going straight off of old footage of highlights and not actual game watching. Wade appeared to be a more skilled player from the maybe 30 total mins i’ve seen of Havlicek. So basically what I’m saying is I can’t act as if I have an informed opinion on the matter. I dunno lol. Most the pro ball i have seen allot of is from early 80′s on.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I feel you. I, like I’ve probably told you a few times, am crazy. I used to watch ESPN Classic all off-season/summer when i was home as a kid. Plus I got all of these uncles who are more or less only interested in the older era’s of the NBA. I am with you in that Wade is top 5 SG’s since the 3pt line was invented. That I would agree on.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Havlicek played a lot of Small Forward also BTW. He wasn’t primarily a SG, just a wing. Which is why I don’t like the “old” ways of labeling positions. You have a Point, Two Wings, A Utility Big, and a Center. That’s how the positions should be IMO – The Utility Big is the PF obviously, the uses for it are so varied in today’s game I just consider it the utility position.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Its so hard to compare era’s together yet we all feel the need to do it. It’s really impossible to determine allot of things because of the difference in rules and athleticism. Basketball in my mind has always had a 3 point line. Obviously thats not true I just base my game so much off of it I can’t imagine not having it lol. Wish there always was one but can’t change the past. Thats cool you have a bunch of bball knowledge surrounding you. I got no one. I’m on my own. I know way more about ball than anyone else in my life. Hence why i’m on here just talking BS.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I have an issue comparing big men in different era’s more then wings. actually let me rephrase that. I don’t at all like comparing Big-Men before and after the 3pt line was invented. Wing players i’m ok with, unless that 3pt shot is a large part of their game. Like Reggie Miller, I can’t compare him with anyone before 1979.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I am definitely fortunate to be apart of a big family in which my interests coincide with that of my 10 or so uncles.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Just watched that Bernard King video Slam has up right now for the best MSG performances. Hmmm.. I’m not very impressed. Now, I realize that the short jumper is one of the most difficult to shoot in the game but dam! Everything he shot was 8 feet and in. He played like a PF does today. Just observations. MJ scored 5 points less but was obviously the way better player in the games. MJ’s shot slection was so crazy yet perfect.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    As Allen said on that thread, LeBrob needs to watch some Bernard King tape. I only brought up King earlier to just show that what Wade has done throughout his career is not much better then mNy others who are never part of any greatest ever conversations. Wasn’t saying they are similar players

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I wasn’t thinking that you were. I was just shocked how much dude was on the post for being a ‘wing’. You watch Reggie, Kobe, and MJ and dudes are dropping 30 ft bombs and juking the hell outta you. My type of ball. Doesn’t mean King ain’t good, just not an impressive skillset in my eyes. But yeah Bron should just get half of those moves down and he’s set haha.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Yeah my kinda hoop is similar, I like my teams playing a passing and shooting game. Beating defenses where they are weak, rather then taking advantage of a single player. Basically the mavericks play how I like the game to be played

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Same. The Lakers can play that way, but everyone is so skilled offensively that they sometimes try to ‘get theres’. The Celtics at their best are a beauty to watch also. I prefer getting the ball to the OPEN man rather than a man trying to get open. Nothing easier than to take a shot in a perfect passing rotation.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Right. Boston’s offense is nice, I just don’t like how unrelated all their talent is. But it’s a superficial thing that is not really important because they have such an intelligent coaching staff. More of something I wouldn’t enjoy then something that actually matters.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    How so? Looks about perfect to me. A distibuting Pg in Rondo. The best shooter of all time in Allen. A great do all sf in PP. Defensive front court with one of the greatest PF of all time. Maybe i’m not understanding what your meaning by saying “unrelated talent”

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I have no qualms about their defense. I’m Stricly talking offensively. They must be a dream and a nightmare to coach for at the same time. They have everything you described, but all of their backups are completely different. You have a post up scoring back up PG/SG in Delonte West. An athlete streak shooter in Von Wafer. A twiner 6th man in Jeff Green. Glenn Davis is the most similar bench player to a starter in Boston offensively, he plays similarly to Garnett just a little more bullish inside then long. And then Nenad Krstic as your pick and pop backup center. So you have your normal offense with your starting 5. Then one of them gets hurt and bam you have to run a completely different offense in order to maximize it’s efficiency. Like I said before it’s a superficial problem when you have such a talented coaching staff. It would just prevent me from running the type of offensive system I would run as a coach. Which I could be completely wrong about, seeing as how my coaching experience is minimal. And completely nonexistent at any real competitive level.
