Default The Pressure of a King(Lebron James)

Since Lebron James came into the league, there has been a tremendous amount of pressure on him, from day one. No other player, in NBA history, has faced the type of pressure he has. Most players would fold. Most players would quit. Most players would suffer some type of extreme depression and fade away into oblivion. However, Lebron James has faced the intense pressure place on him by the media, fans, teammates, etc. He has placed teams on his back and won MVPs. He has dragged inferior teams to the Finals. He has been tested by fire and proven to withstand the flames.

Lebron James is truly one of the greatest. The heart of a king. He will get a ring. He will prove the doubters wrong. We will be witnesses.

You make it seem like he has more pressure on him than a Brain surgeon on a dieing patient

I think his stans feel more pressure for him to win a ring than the "king" himself.......propping him up like a god only to fail twice at the biggest stage. cold hard facts..... I guess the hypothetical ring argument still has its following, more ifs and ifs,.... IF anything, Lebron is the KING of IFs......

0/2 = 0% inefficiency...

Thread is stupid but I wanted to speculate on something and this seems like a decent place to do it.

What is LeBron Jame's reaction IF IF IF IF IF he does somehow win a championship this year? Does he cry? Similar to KG where we just see him go nuts? Or does he stay in character and just give some PC bullshit?

As much as I dislike the guy he has kinda got shit on for some time. Been to the finals twice and came up short. The whole shit with Cleveland seeing his jersey get burnt\boo'ed like crazy etc. Gotta think it'll be beyond a huge deal for him if he wins.

OP, is it the "pressure" which makes him fold in every single 4th quarter?
Can he not handle the pressure when it matters most? What's going on?

Probably. Would be nice to know what turns him into an unaggressive little bitch once the 4th quarter starts.
