I hated on him for his soft, feminine, anti-competitive antics of 2010 and 2011, and then claimed he had finally became a man and self accountable with his 2012 run and that his ring was absolutely earned.

I've said his game 6 performance v.s. the Celtics is by far one of the best performances I've ever seen from a player on the big stage.

I've said he's from a pure raw perspective, a top five talent to ever touch a basketball.

I've praised him for saving our nation's ass in 3 games during the Olympics (Brazil, Lithuania, and gold medal game v.s. Spain)

I've said he's one of the 3 oddest, freak genetic athletes of all-time.

I've said, CLEARLY, he's the 2nd best player I've ever seen (better than Shaq, Duncan, Hakeem, Barkley, Kobe, and Wade)

How on earth am I hating on LeBron?



It's called reality check. The FG% is impressive. As is the efficiency, but the agenda is also quite clear. It doesn't dilute the performance, but it absolutely needs to be kept in mind.
I know you're not a hater but you act like he's passing up shot frequently or he starts of 5/5 every game and goes passive. Especially this game, I'm not sure how he's protecting his fg% taking low %. And maybe your point would be taking more serious if he wasn't reaching his averages or sacrificing production for fg% or losing games with his way or the shots he's earning are cherry picked but it is a no to all of those. What he is doing is amazing and it's working. I see nothing wrong with what he said either, he's pushing himself with wade with producing at an efficient rate and I seriously haven't seen wade pass up any opening shot unless it's completely out of his range so you are kind of overblowing this passing up shots thing. Either way they're winning and producing

They have a FG percentage competition between each other, and they at times protect it or regret taking shots. Regardless of what you Gloria James wannabes say he's still clearly passing on opportunities for a more impressive FG%.

It's something that needs to be accounted for when looking at the numbers.

You've clearly taken something way out of context.

Yes, they have a FG% goal. They don't protect it or pass up shots. They take better shots. The only time this year you can accuse James of doing it is in the Charlotte game where he went 13-14. Apart from that its not manufactured or unnatural the way his efficiency on shots has gone up. In Wade's case, its a not even nearly true. Dude forces bad shots at times.

If you mean he doesn't take bad dumb shots ... um, ok? Is this suppose to be a criticism? I bet your an Iverson and Kobe kinda guy aren't you?

You also hated on dude like he f*cked your mother until he won the title. How many times did you say shit like he couldn't win because he was mentally weak and wasn't that skilled?

Everything I got on his case for was absolutely justified. You'd be blind not to think otherwise.

I absolutely said he was mentally weak, and lacked competitive spirit. And he did. He acted like a spoiled child for a couple of seasons. His 2010 playoff performance and 2011 Finals performances being absolute atrocities.

I have however NEVER said that he wasn't skilled. Where did you pull that out of your ass? You haven't roamed these boards in awhile.

All the crap I gave LeBron from the second round of 2010 until last year when he finally matured, took self accountability and improved his game. Was all justified.

As it's justified that I say he earned his ring as well. He proved me wrong. It takes a bigger man to admit that ... he finally got his stuff together mentally, and that's why he won last year. He decided for the first time there was no more need for excuses, no weak post game press conferences blaming haters who "have to go back to their boring lives" ... he straight up put all the excuses aside and balled.

So, everything I said was justified in 2010 and 2011. People like Magic, ESPN talking heads, Stephen A Smith ... we all said the same damn thing. Hell, Larry Bird said it too. Until he finally stepped up and put on the big boy pants to match his talents.

No more pre game dances, and rehearsals. Just domination and wins. Then you can party and act a fool. He finally stopped making a sideshow of himself. He finally stopped saying and doing stupid things in the media. He stopped deflecting blame, and accepted responsibility.

Difference being is that you're sniffing the dude's jock all along, and refused to call him out on his weaknesses. I was being objective. So, once again please hop off my dick Simple Jack. And crawl back into the hole that you've been in for the past several months.

ISH is much more enjoyable without you.
