What game did you watch?
If the refs favored anybody last night it wasnt the Heat.
They weren't then. That was later in the decade, if memory serves.
so people cared even less than I thought.
Outside of the Taj Gibson foul on Lebron, I think it was called fairly. People just aren't use to refs calling offensive fouls for Lebron charging his body into people who attempt to defend him. This league has called the foul on the defender when it should've been charging to often that most defenders rarely try to stay in his way. Stay on the floor to help the team is better than being on the bench in foul trouble.
:laugh2: LOL !
That's it ??
Never heard or read about mistrisses.
:laugh2: I worded that wrong.
I meant he has houses for his mistresses. Not like one big mansion just full of them.
I'm not sure where I heard it, just through a friend or something...I don't really know if it's true or not.
Most over-rated player in the history of the game. And this does not mean he isn't good.
Lebron gets away with more charging and travelling and lowering his shoulder, as well as hand guarding then any player in the league. Wade broke Kobe's nose, kicked Sessions in the balls, and broke Rondo's elbow, and these clowns are complaining that they get 'hard fouls'. Funny how he uses the ticky-tack non-flagrant fouls as diversion from his cheap elbow into Boozer. He also doesn't mentioned his clear foul that the ref didn't call on Boozer's clutch shot, as well as a technical he should have gotten for hanging on the rim after Nate Robinson scored on him. I mean really Lebron, how many clips do we have to show of your flopping.
The reality is, the Heat are not a great team in a half-court offense and teams like the Bulls, with their physical play and defense, give them plenty of fits out of the half-court set. The strength of the Heat are in their perimiter defense and open-court transition. If a team is allowed to play them physical, one begins to see how frustrated they become.
This is complete foolishness.
as much as i dislike lebron, i cannot agree with this. there are so many more overrated and overhyped players.....look at all the alleged next Michael Jordans that came along from 95 to 2005. All of them were jokes. What about Bowie, Oden, Sampson, Alfrederick Hughes, etc.
Lebron is a great player, but he is also a whiny, spoiled, coddled, attention garden tool female dog. He is a total poor sport and lacks class. When the tide is on his side, he is an arrogant showboat....but the minute the tide is against him, there he is filling up the river with his tears and playing the poor officiating card.
Just curious, but which Sampson are you referring to? I hope it isn't Ralph, heh
I have no clue what other Sampson's were highly touted, not to mention Ralph was in 1983.
But I agree with you, LeBron is talented but is babied by the NBA. If it isn't his way, he turns into a 2-yr old.
Can you not just state your opinion, and simply make your point without exaggerating to the point of foolishness?
Too bad the refs won't call the game that fairly in the playoffs. It'll be back to Lebron running the defender over and the defender getting called for the foul, or the defenders just letting him pass because their team can't afford to have him in foul trouble.
Maybe some of those old guys on the Knicks, like Kenyon Martin and Rasheed Wallace, are expendable enough to stand in his way and get him whining to the refs instead of playing basketball.
Lebron is the best player in the league today, and if you allow him, he'll put up record stats on you all series long. You gotta make him pay the toll, to drive to the hole. Heh, I like the sound of that.
Lebron gets battered and hammered pretty routinely.
Its laughable that some of you here act as if he gets preferential treatment.
The fact that he was called for a flagrant foul in the Bulls game, but the foul on him previously was not called a flagrant is pretty clear evidence. But choose to ignore the obvious and explain it away.
I was talking about ralph........unfortunately injuries destroyed his career.....maybe overrated isnt the correct word to use....but he definitely didnt fulfill his promise because of the injuries. Walton, too had injury issues, but, while he was healthy, he brought a title to Portland and helped win more in Boston (oh and he also brought several to UCLA)....something Sampson couldn't do at Houston or in college at Virginia.
he is shooting a career high in Field Goal Attempts in the paint and is shooting a career low in Free Throw Attempts this season...if someone like Durant gets 10 a game LeBron should have more than that...
I posted youtube videos in a prior thread in this very forum providing evidence of Lebron's preferential treatment by the referees. The game you are citing is one of very few games of his career where he was called for his antics and of course, he cries to the media about it.
Please, you can't tell me you aren't aware of him getting away with six steps (the rule is two steps) in the paint on a game-winning drive against the Wizards. Walking over and talking smack right in Gilbert Arenas' ear while he's shooting potentially series-winning free throws, when the rule is you aren't even able to say anything when the shooter is about to shoot. His hand-checking of Durant for the entirety of last year's NBA finals. These are things you won't find Josh Smith getting away with.
sure i can, but my way is much funner and more entertaining.:
a lot of players get battered routinely. Shaq was downright assaulted game in and game out, and hardly got any of the calls Lebron gets. Shaq complained at first, only cause they were going at him low, but then decided it was doing no good, so he just went out and bullied everyone.
Lebron creates most of the contact, and then whines when teams are physical with him. Get over it. He wants to act like the best thing since sliced bread, but when the chips are down, he runs to the corner, curls up in the fetal position, soils himself, and drowns in a puddle of tears. Physically, he could play in any era, but mentally and emotionally, he couldn't handle the 80s or 90s. The Pistons, Bulls, Lakers, Celtics, Blazers, Pacers, Knicks, and Heat would eat him alive.
Instead of crying to the media, get some of your end of bench players out there and go rough on the opposition. Also, if they are fouling you hard, you foul them hard in return. This is the NBA, an eye for an eye.
