Dont make excuses for Wade. Please.
Dwayne Wade has plantar faciitis... It's SO easy to see he isn't the same, but is grinding through it.
He is playing, period. Like I said, no excuses.
jordan: player of the game
It's very difficult to root for the Heat when they continue to Burress themeslves...
Burr - ess (verb) - to shoot yourself in the leg
You are one of the posters who get mad when others say LeBron isn't that clutch... Here is an example of what people are talking about.
He is amazing for like the first 40-44 minutes but during close games and that game is on the line, he gets smaller... ESPECIALLY when he gets put on the line.
His body language changes... It's like he loses his swag and confidence.
Hahahaha....LeBron fails again.
Lol I will say this though, if you think for one second the Heat won't be in the bulls ass like last season during the play offs. You are sadly mistaken. Its one game, and they are 8-3. It is not the end of the world.
DAMN YOU LEBRON!!!
Your the type of poster who comes around to throw in your skip bayless esque nonsense during games like this but when its the other way around your never here. No praise, you act like it never happened.
I love all the people I pi/ss off in here. The guy is a mental case when the game is on the line. Instead of whining and grimacing, he should be hitting his free throws or a lay up.
everyone calls out lebron for settling for jumpshots, but reality is if you want to be considered clutch, you gotta be able to knock down open jumpers. If anything he overpenetrated tonight. Just pass I guess if the jumper aint gonna fall and there is no driving lane there. Say what you want about lebron being the best player today, he might very well be. But he isnt close to the most skilled
Lmao... Nevermind man. You are way too sensitve. Just pointing this out due to the debate about this not too long ago.
Hey, I still say he is the most talented player ever. Just loses his mind when it matters. I feel like he thinks about all of the criticism when he is standing on the line, or when the game is on the line. Instead of just using his instincts like Kobe.
LeBron still is a player who has no real go-to move... He just looks out of rhythm in the clutch. He takes jumpers when he should drive and then drives too deep (the play where he jump stopped and traveled) when he should pull up.
Like I was saying in the other debate... I think D. Wade is a more clutch player and should have the ball in his hands. LeBron scored 2 points in the fourth quarter and OT... And looked like he had gum on his shoes.
I missed the game, but U all gave me a very nice recap. Lemme get this straight.
Bosh was overmatched, Dwayne played decent but his foot injury limited him, and Lebron picked up right where he left off last postseason, not clutch.
I am going to blame Spo for all the heats failure this season. How hard is it to say Give the ball to Dwade in crunch time.?
listen. if you are touted the best player in the game, you damn better finish the game. "its not how you start, but how you finish!" c'mon fellas... how can we call him one of the best ever if he cant even close out games... neg me all you want but im taking" kobe,wade, AND durant AND melo over him....
no but in all seriousness...lebrons been in the league, what 8 years now? how many game winners does he have. serious question. im gonna go out on a limb, and say 5-7 max. how many times has he taken over a fourth qtr. again going to go out on a limb and say 10 times max. which is not enough for "the king" or 1 of the best ever. im sorry but in my book best ever includes MJ, bird, Magic... those guys played the same beggining to end. closing out games, taking over games, etc... lebron doesnt. which to me is why he'll never be one of the best.
Woah there steven, everything you said was about right, until you said he will never be one of the best, that's where ppl go to far, dude is already on of the best to ever do it and only 27 and was considered one of the best to ever do it at about 24,25.
You saying him not being clutch is valid to a certain extent, he has been to the NBA Finals with the Lowly Cavs and has took them on a couple deep runs in the playoffs so he is clutch in some sense, but that's neither here nor there.
One thing you can't deny tho, he is one of the best and whenever he retires he will be a 1st ballot HOF, and a top 10 player regardless if he wins a ring, the numbers the man puts up, and his physical dominance will get him there alone, and if he wins a ring then he enters the discussion for top 5, hell depending on how many rings he could be considered the BEST to ever do it.
I'll say this about L
I'll say this about Lebron he's been the leader in 4th quarter scoring, he's been great in the last 5 minutes of 4th quarters, he's made clutch shots in the playoffs against the Wizards, Pistons, Magic, Celtics and Bulls. The problem is that in sports it's about what have you done for me lately and RIGHT NOW he's not even in my top 20 of players I would trust in the 4th quarter. I don't know if the comments have gotten to him or what, but the critics the last two years in the regular season and the finals atleast, have been right. He's going to eventually have to prove people wrong.
