    That was actually pretty good defense. recovering, didn't fall for the hesitation dribbles as much. This is no different than Jordan getting scored on by Iverson.

    Boozer became a star after he left Lebron as he couldn't grow with him.

    Not even sure why I am even arguing with a supposed alt account but Billups won Finals MVP not Wallace.

    What part don't you get idiot? Wallace was old at that point. Not hard to understand.

    Lebron had a 3x finals mvp in Shaq and showed up in the series while Lebron disappeared.
    Shaq was old and was washed at that point. Shaq didn't play better than Mo Williams, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Rondo. It also exposes just how flimsy LeBron's supporting cast was. Mo Willams who was 27 years old and was in his prime and he was getting outperformed by Allen and Garnett statistically who were WAY older.

    LeBron performance contributed to the series loss and deserves some blame I will admit it, but you can't just choose to nitpick one game when you are not looking at the FULL picture aka the whole series in general. Not hard to get, idiot.

    Boozer became a star after he left Lebron as he couldn't grow with him.
    Just like when Hedo Turkoglu left the Spurs he got instantly better without Tim Duncan statistically and got MIP later on? Or like when Tim Duncan retired, Kawhi turned into a superstar. I guessed Tim Duncan's style of play limited them. You are a dumbass. Boozer was a rookie and was in his 2nd year so naturally it takes time and development to adapt to the NBA rules. Also Boozer was 7th option 2003 and the 4th option in 2004. In UTA he was 1st option so naturally he got more PT and more chances to score. Same goes for Hedo and Kawhi.

Maravich was a shell of his former self and retired = he was done. McHale was not good enough to be a starter until 85. Do you think Parish would have a HOF career if he did not play in Boston and play with Bird???

    I’m a LeBron fan but I can still respect that Bird did not have to join up with other top producing players.
