I would have loved to see Melo's reaction to this. Him and JKidd.

And Wade's as well, if he wasnt injured. Thats like a pure slap in the face to them.

"Guys are gonna look to me to lead by example and lead by voice, so, I'm here for them"

Need someone to take the last shot? I'm here for you guys, even if I just chuck it off the backboard without even hitting rim...follow my lead!

haha, it looked like he was struggling to answer the questions without his PR guys prepping him for it. How about his "celebrity" answer, he couldn't come up with a witty answer that's politically correct and just said "um.. nobody", lol. He looked like he didn't want to be interviewed at all, I'm sure that's what happens to most superstars though when they're getting interviewed on the fly. Most people would probably say something stupid like him if bothered by the media day and night.

Its funny when he got asked if the Cavs are gonna win it all next year, he just rolled his eyes and said "yea, I'm working hard this summer"

trust me lots of nba players get bothered and wouldnt say something stupid like that...I sounded more like what he really felt...

Honestly he gets a big pass from the media and especially ESPN, imagine if certain other people had said that..what would espn do with it..how many articles would be out by now???

Damn that's a lot of back hair.



Anyway, good for LeBron. Where the **** were Kobe and Kidd last summer? And now they're the "leaders", after one scrimmage? Pay your dues, rookies.

Melo leads the team in shot attempts, that's all he cares about.

I can't even imagine Lebron James taking the last shot in the final minutes..



We will have to wait and see if Lebron James can prove us wrong..

WTF are you talking about? Kobe was getting knee surgery and Kidd wasn't even on the original squad since Colangelo assumed he wasn't interested. And Kidd's always been the f&cking leader, that's who he is. And he is 34-0 in international competition, wtf does lebron have?

Melo led the team in shot attempts while shooting at a high percentage and better from three, and totally outplayed Lebron in almost every single aspect of the game during the 06 worlds...

...so again, wtf are you talking about

Wow, just.. wow. Probably thinks he's a leader because he calls "1, 2, 3, USA!!" in the huddle.

I dont even know how you can have enough pure, unfiltered gall to say something like that, on camera.


It would be egotistical for Kidd or Kobe to say too, but atleast they'd be somewhat right because guys are going to come to them.

It would've been egotistical for AI or Duncan to have said it in 2004. Its just an egotistical thing to say.

But for this fool to say it when its obviously not true, then... Hell I don't even think he should be on the team, nevertheless the leader. I want the idiot to name one example of a player on that team not named Durant or Oden that has come to him for his vocal leadership as he suggested on that vid? Just 1. Just 1 mother****er.

Like I said before, I can't imagine Lebron James taking the last shot..the only players on Team USA that should take the last shot are Bryant,Melo, and Miller.


My respect for Lebron decreased from, 8/10 to 2/10..for saying this BS.

What a fucking hater. Yeah lets cut lebron that will really help us win the gold.

LBJ>Kobe in leadership. Not clutch shots. LEADERSHIP. Kobe has proved nothing about being a good leader. Kidd has, but Lebron let a cast of nobodys to the nba finals. He is a great leader.
