Want to know if Lebron is a trash talker or complainer. Go ask players on the court with him for 48 minutes, no people who interview him after the games. And Lebron has been complaining about lots of calls in the playoffs so far. It's the NBA. It's the Finals. It's a mans sport. If you get fouled hard or commit a foul you think was called wrong, you argue it. If you let everyone walk all over you, your chances of winning are decreased. It's a man's game.

Not according to David Stern.

I respect the fact that Lebron doesn't need bail out calls and over 20 free throw attempts to score 40 points like *cough* Wade.

I don't see what's the problem with Wade calling out Dirk. Seems like everyone here wants this sterile league where all the players are PC and say automated responses. Let them publically criticize each other, it's more fun that way. As long as it doesn't get too personal stays basketball-related it's all in good competition.

Stern's movement towards controlling attitudes of the players are reaching the fans. I agree there is an amount of decorum that should be involved, but forgive me if I don't mind Rasheed's random acts of maliciousness, Kevin Garnett screaming "mother****er" every other possession, or Ray Allen calling out Kobe Bryant and saying Tim Thomas is better.

The league is a lot better when we have people playing basketball, not robots that pander to the public.

He plays basketball the right way, always looking for the score, and never counting on the refs, or anyone, to bail him out, unlike Wade.

Good lord. How this has blown up to so much hyperbole is beyond me. I mean it wasn't even a twinkle in anyones eye prior to last years finals...

Now Wade is completly dependant on the refs to score...haha. C'mon bruh...


It's apparent most of ya'll missed Wade's rookie year..And how aggressive he was and how he showed the whole package, and that it was inevitable that he was going the marquee player that he is today. Was just going out there and staying in attack mofe, wasn't a 'foul call beneficiary' as quite a few of you so claim he is today, he deliverd and was still the same clutch player without the so called 'star system' that has revolved around his game today...

He never flops

Never say never: http://youtube.com/watch?v=a_jsyxJVAXs

Quote:
He would never call out a player from another team like Wade did to Nowitzi, even in retaliation. Lebrons an egotistical, conceited SOB, but his maturity and professionalism on the court is extremely admirable. I believe Wade is the better basketball player overall, but I respect Lebron a hell of a lot more for his demeanor and attitude.

But I mean, what relevence does that to the actual play of game of basketball?

That's all that matters really.

And in any sorts... Bron has never been tried in the same way that Dirk has to Wade and the Heat so really you can't present that he wouldn't as a fact.

And all and all that little exchange of words wasn't even that serious..An exchange of jabs (if that's want to call it ) from two competitors. That's NEEDED in the league...

And since when did Wade not carry himself in a professinal manner? The dude isn't smug in the least bit. He's worked himself from the ground up..

This is your opinon, not going to knock it heavily, but really don't get the focal point of the comparison and the retarded reasons IMO (no offense) in what's lead you to have a higher respect for one or another in any case.

I'm partial to Dwyane Wade as he plays for my favorite team, but if someone made a post as to why they respect either or better/ or on the flip, slighting Lebron style per say (for whatever reasons) , and crediting Wade for how he presents himself, I'd think that would be stupid as well..

For the simple fact that both of these young dudes carry themselves like professionals..No one can prove otherwise.

And also with you saying you believe Wade is a better player than Lebron but you have 'more respect' for Bron, On the flip side I believe [no bias] Bron is actually better than Wade a little bit when you account the fact that he probably has a higher ceiling at this point, with the maturity that he's shown in his game so early as he has today..

Both these dudes have a high respect and hold eachother in high regard, they actually devoloped quite the friendship as well. Both of them are and have been dubbed the future of the league..So all in all this is pointless to me...

So basically you prefer your basketball players to have no personality and no intensity.

Personally I like character. I mean honestly, when did it become a crime to be yourself?

Only if it is your personality. Every now and then LeBron actually shows a bit of himself. He is basically hiding himself. I find it annoying, pretentious and just plain stupid. What is so bad about you that you have to hide it from the world?

it hurts the game in general...

that is like saying if a wide reciver can go deep and constantly draw pass interferance then why not do it?....because it is angling the rules to work in your favor rather than using your skills the way it is ment to be played. the way the refs were treating Wade made it impossible for dallas to even try to play defense...Dallas was pretty much forced to just let him drive and score.
