Woj really writes basketball stories as if he were a baseball writer - he writes like he's laying out a narrative rather than just providing the facts. The older sports all have writers like this, but he's one of the first national writers like this that I can remember for basketball. I like it personally. It makes the articles more interesting to read.

Wade was one of the Team USA players who’d watch incredulously as James would throw a bowl of fries back at a renowned chef and bark, “They’re cold!” Or throw his sweaty practice jersey across the court and command a team administrator to go pick it up. Everyone wants James to grow out of it, but he’s never showed much of an inclination for self-examination and improvement. And he’s never surrounded himself with people who’d push him to do so.
Are there Youtube videos of this, like the one about the "Ball Boy - Youtube Video" posted on this forum?

Are you fanboys ever gonna hold Lebron accountable for anything?

LeBron does remind me a bit of a younger Shaq in his attitude issues.

The difference with younger Shaq I think was he was raised by an army dad. And army dad's don't take no sh-t. So while Shaq could occasionally get unruly, there was always a line to it.

I think I remember a story where Shaq was taunting Yao in the press, and it even got racial at one point, and Shaq's dad laid the smack down on him and Shaq manned up and apologized.

With LeBron ... y'know ... I don't think he's had that. You need an alpha male to coach LeBron because the guy has daddy issues unfortunately. Great basketball talent, but he still has some growing up to do.

And that is definitely on him. LeBron needs to mature. The first thing he should do is cut off Maverick Carter and his "entourage" of leeching "yes men" friends. If they wanna be your friends, fine, but never get into business with your friends.

Woj once again telling it like it is. Good for him. I still think the best article he ever wrote was after game 5 against Boston last year. Total evisceration and it wasn't based on hate. No, that was just straight truth talking. Truth hurts to quote the cliche.

People misinterpret it as hate because they're perpetually bowing down to the "king" so much that they have LeBron's balls nestled all in their mouths. They simply can't believe there is 1 dissenter out there not taking LeBron's bull**** act.

Maverick Carter seems to have had a lot more power in CLE than he does in Miami where they told him he could take his talents to Akron

He needs to become a Knick. All of his stuff off the court is irrelevant news in New York, espescially when you're productive.

LeBron would fit in fine.
