The playoffs are completely different compared to the regular season. Teams shorten their rotations and players play with more intensity. It's win or go home. Players are now playing through injuries and giving all they have. Beating a great team in a seven game series is tougher than anything that happened during the regular season.
Not to mention... LeBron becomes even more ball dominant in the playoffs. I don't know how many times I heard on TNT vs the Bulls... "LeBron and Mike Brown need to get other players involved... LeBron dominating the ball isn't going to work in the playoffs vs a great team."
Reguardless mo and Antwan sucked. They wasn't even hitting open &$#%#&@!. And if you not making shots do other things. Mo defense sucked and antwans defense was almost as bad on top of not rebounding. They didn't show up to play at all. Being off is one thing but they didn't contribute at the other parts of the game
Open shots. Not sure why it did that
Also iverson was even more ball dominate but his teammates stepped up in other ways besides scoring and hit open shots. Even lebrons teammates hit open shots the year they won the title. Even being ball dominate you have to hit open shots when u get the ball. Coachs tell you always be ready because you never know when you're time will come and it's not like they weren't getting touchs till the end if the game. If I was lebron I wouldn't pass to guys who ate shooting such a low percentage either. His other teammates didn't have a problem contributing in some way
Probably typed the i instead of o in shots lol
I was one of the ONLY ones who hated Lebron for years now, not just cuz he left Cleveland. I could care less that he left, I just can't stand how egotistical, arrogant, and self-centered he is. He stole the pre-game ritual from the greatest to ever play the game, even changing his number to one of the greatest (who also has the most rings), but has clearly shown no desire to become greater than Kobe or Jordan. Championship rings are worth a lot more than MVPs
I'm just happy the excuses for LeBron are over. He's now on a great team in South Beach. The "LeBron doesn't have great teammates" excuse is history.
I'm sure there'll be a new excuse this year though.
If the Heat don't at least make it to the finals than I deserve to STFU, but that won't happen...
OK. You'll find some excuse ended with a wait until next season. You'll blame it on Mike Miller, Udonis Haslem, Mario Chalmers, Carlos Arroyo, Joel Anthony and Zydrunas Illgauskas.
What will it be this time? Kobe has a greater coach? LA has better ownership? A better center? A veteran point guard? A cuter wife? Lol what will it be?
Nope no excuses. Lebron finally has a viable 2nd option its about to be obvious that Kobe is just not as good as Lebron and you'll see
I personally would take Kobe. As far as excuses let's be honest. He didn't have a title team in Cleveland. His second and third options were not title teams second and third options
can anyone name one team who won a title who had a roster on the same level as Cleveland? Or even close? His roster was almost comparable to the laker. When there big three was odom Kobe and smush
Ebron is physically better but skill wise. Kobe
That's what I'm sayin, Quincey
Well now he's on a title team, so let's see what happens. That excuse is gone.
But, if he starts winning championships people are gonna say he should win a bunch of championships because hes playing with Wade and Bosh....
Yea he's pretty much in a no win situation with some fans. The thing I like about him is he could give a damn what the fans think as long as he wins a title. I would be the same way. Win titles and get that dough on the way to the hall of fame
