Lebron will eventually win, not one, not two, not three, not four....you get the point. He's one of the greatest players I've ever seen. Immature, yes, but still pretty damn good. I wish Kobe was more of an attack the basket player like Lebron.
I've always despised the "oh yeah, but look who was on his team" argument. So, Russell's not Russell... MJ's not MJ... Kareem/Magic/Shaq/Duncan/Robinson/Kobe et al aren't <insert name>.
Reality is what it is. LeBron might get his rings now (I think he'll end up with 2)... but he'll have to deal with the flak that's going to come from him getting them alongside Wade/Bosh.
After the last Finals, the only thing that's going to assuage the crap he's getting is for him to win, and be *The Man* in doing so. Anything less, and it's going to continue. Matter o' fact, if he wins a ring, and Wade wins the MVP - it's going to be worse than ever.
