Once the finals came, he didn't want to win cuz he knew Wade would get FMVP by game 2 and it would be another notch against his legacy.

You, sir, are an idiot.

Yeah he played like a b*tch most of the series, but are you seriously conceding the factors above don't go hand in hand?

the post basically said that lebron in the finals played exactly according to the gameplan and exactly how miami wants him to play.

You saying he needs the ball in his hands is NOT the same as that trolling post saying he played in the finals passively and stood around a lot because thats how hes supposed to play.

Wishful thinking. He needs to get rid of his entourage.

Cmon now, is everyone stupid? Obviously LeBron didn't have the team to win. He needs BETTER players. They should also fire the coach because it was his fault too.

Sign CP3 and trade for Dwight Howard and that should give LeBron a ring (If you haven't caught on, I am being really sarcastic)

CP3
Wade
LeBron
Bosh
Howard

I think this team could possibly win a ring. Maybe they could hire Phil Jackson as their coach and sign Grant Hill / Nene / Shannon Brown (as bench players).

Yes, but why? It's a TV show. He's an entertainer. It's only hard to know that your fans are dumb as ****, prolonging some daily PR thing he had that day, into an organic hype thing he has to live with and is now a big part of his career... So no wonder he's paralised even on the floor by what he should do that all would seem tidy, to you. It's not a surprise that he's only now convincing himself you are all just lifeless trash. You are just future perverts, confused about media images.. He needs a stint in Europe this year, in Milan or England, or needs to just go to some soccer games, so his loser American fans will be put into perspective to him.

Like, maybe in his mind he wasn't just standing, and was trying to do things and simply was unable to, due to Mavs defense or whatever.

Vs what it actually looked like, which is that he seemed content to stand and watch a lot when it mattered most

I watched the 4th quarter of some finals games again and he was really just standing around a lot on defense. He must have been cooked from the regular season, play-off run and the 43-46 minutes every night, which was absolutely deadly against the Mavs ball movement. It would have been better to play him only 38-40 minutes a night to keep him fresh, even the stats in the finals suggested the team played better when only 2 of the 3 stars were on the field together.

That is a combination of not being so agressive, Mavs defense and Wade all of the sudden going and saying for the first time "This is my team, i am the leader, i am gona lead them" in the Finals, after playing 2nd fiddle entire season and playoffs, he decided to hog the ball much more than usual leaving Lebron looking like a statue very often and when it was his turn he was not in offensive rythm, so Lebron focused instead on playmaking / defense..... They got this far by Lebron doing most of the leading, not Wade, that is what changed, it almost felt like Wade couldnt stand not winning the finals mvp or something. To be honest they could have still won this way if Wade/Bosh/Lebron didnt choke in the 4th quarter.

Its really that simple, there is only one ball.

In my opinion LeBron thought that getting into a scoring battle with Wade would have been detrimental for the ultimate goal of winning.

He convinced himself that he has to make a difference as "facilitator" (he even used this term when some journalist pointed out his lack of direct contribution), so it's just a matter of point of views:

- for the general public, who expects him to take over games: he is just standing around passively;

- for him, who has the goal to win a ring as the GOAT facilitator: he is being humble, not pretending the ball off Wade's hands, performing wonderful facilitation whenever he has the chance.

Final outcome: he lost

it had nothing to do with LeBron sucking from the minute the finals started right?

And yea we all know that from here on out no debate about it this is Wades team. You cant have a mentally fragile and `4($)th quarter ,no show player` leading your team anywhere.
