Lebron put his team on his back and carried them to a W WHILE diming out a few assists. What a terrible player!!!!

And your favorite player has shot the lakers out of the game constantly yet all you ever do is make excuses for him and bash every other laker. Cleveland is just offensively inept outside of Lebron. If you weren't a complete kobe nut hugger u wouldn't be making this thread.

Yes it's ugly ball, but they did win. You are clearly just insecure about Lebron's performance, people like you make us laker fans look bad.

If Kobe had done the same exact thing for the Lakers, this thread would read:

"This is the best quarter of basketball I have seen eva"

or

"Kobe is the best closer in the game!"

Selective perspective is a b*tch ain't it?

If TheBron is the worst ball-dominator in league history, I guess there are some players who never existed:

Tiny Archibald, Oscar Robertson, Chris Paul, Rick Barry, Kobe, Wade, Wilt, McGrady, Jordan, Maravich, etc.

That's what I thought. There may be a lot of LeBron trolls in here, but no one would make a thread like this if Kobe had that type of game

So are strawmen...I have never refered to ANYONE as the best closer in the game...Its not a term I subscribe to...

You are honestly telling me that you didnt feel repulsed watching this mockery of the game...4 guys standing in place for 20 seconds at a time

More strawmen..never said he was the worst ball dominator in the history of the league. I said this was the most ball dominating quarter I had ever seen.

I have never seen Big O play or Wilt or Maravich. I do know that Kobe NEVER ball dominated this much. I cant act like an expert on Jordan's early years either but I doubt he ever held the ball that much in one quarter before.

^ What do you mean by sliding though? I had the impression that Howard jumped straight up.

After being in ISH for a while, I say they would.

Edit: I see what Younggrease is referring to now. I agree now. That was the worst quarter of basketball I have seen. The 4th quarter did turn into a one on one game of twenty-one. That is bad basketball. The officiating was okay through and what Lebron did is still greatness despite the poor basketball.

I don't know, I've only seen the replay once, but it seemed Howard was moving laterally when the contact was made. You're allowed to jump straight up, if you stay within your own cylinder and you jumped before/at the same time the offensive player jumps.

I know what you're saying and Reggie, Charles, Kenny said the same thing you're trying to except they didn't use the words "repulsive" or "disgusted"...More like how this will travel next game due to his players standing around/watching and just the whole team including the coaching staff having LeBron carry everything..

Never the less, from an individual standpoint..LeBron was amazing, jordanesque as I stated earlier.

Howard jumped, which in itself does not help the defensive player if a whistle is going to be blown on the play. He was also inside the restricted area, I believe, which lend itself to a foul being called against him. And I just saw a replay of it and Howard was sliding to his left right infront of Lebron as Lebron was going for the shot.
