Lebron hating on a injury riddled Raptor team that failed to make the playoffs.

it's true for the most part

They would have mashed them without Bosh.
I don't think they didn't want to make the playoffs but Toronto would not have pushed the Cavs
or won a single game without Bosh.

LeBron always talks, he

LeBron always talks, he talks as if he has 5 rings. If I were Kobe, I would shut LeBron up but that's not Kobe's style. He's more quiet and more confident.

and did you guys see what he

and did you guys see what he did to the ball boy(or whate ever he is) when LBJ threw his sweats like 3 times to the ground when the boy put his hand out to take the sweats.... This kid was like for the bulls but still that pretty rude if you ask me.

Yes, the Cavs would have

Yes, the Cavs would have beaten the Raptors with ease, but who cares? You haven't proved anything Lebron. You brought a team to the finals in a weak eastern conference. Everyone had the Cavs-Lakers finals pegged last season and Lebron failed to make it there. And he will fail again this year when they lose to the Magic. When you win a title you have a right to talk some. That's why KG and Paul Pierce are such idiots now.

Kobe has four rings but still doesn't talk. That's saying something.

"we wanted to play Chicago

"we wanted to play Chicago more than Toronto in this first round because we knew we were going to get pushed a little more. That’s not taking anything away from Toronto, but with [Chris] Bosh being out for the rest of the season and all those injuries and they just didn’t seem like they didn’t want to even make the playoffs at the end of the season. Especially when you seen the game between Chicago and Toronto in Toronto."

Honestly, I'm not even really a Lebron fan but I agree 100% with that statement. Lebron calls them like he sees them, I'd rather hear that than the same cliche statements athletes pump out in interviews...

ur surprised?

this is he same guy who stormed off the court like a &$#%#&@! after gettin stomped and his excuse was " I' too much of a winner" or got dunked on and had the videos pulled like it was an obama sex tape.com He might call it like he sees it but only when hes winning meanwhile hes got as many rings as you and me.

p.S: umm if you remeber, kobe used to talk alot too but he toned it down. Remember when he was all "i dont know this kid" about raja bell

If your gonna talk like that

If your gonna talk like that you can't storm off the court when you lose. Lebron and Mike Brown were talking serious &$#%#&@! before the Orlando series an they acted like they were getting a pass to the finals. I don't think Lebron is gonna tone it down, but he better act like a pro if the Cavs go down.

He won't act like a pro

He won't act like a pro though. If they go out the Playoffs he'll storm off again, and act like a kid. No handshakes, no interviews; nada. That's just how he is.

I agree with

I agree with ItsDwightHoward. He spoke his mind. It's better than the cliche' stuff that we here all the time from these guys. I have no problem with what he said. It's not like he lied. Let that man have an opinion.

And I think you guys are on Lebron's tip a little too much honestly. Who cares if he didn't shake hands? Really? Why do people even care about that? It's shaking hands man. It's not the end of the world, and it happened last year....Some even said he threw his clothes on the ground instead of handing them to the ball boy....???...Are you serious? Who cares! Why would you even pay attention to something like that? I never knew basketball was an etiquette class. I'm sure that happens all the time anyway. I say let that man say whatever he wants as long as he doesn't go overboard or say something inappropriate.

Mr. 6000

Why Mr.6000? I'll tell you why...He's Lebron Freaking James! Everything he does is going to get scrutinized. Everything he says and everything he does will be talked about...because he is...say it with me...Lebron Freaking James. Is it right that people put him under the microscope? Maybe not. But thats the way it works. Its not that hard to not be an ass. Its not that hard to hand some kid who probably idolizes the hell out of him your warmups. He is the face of the NBA...thats why people talk about this stuff...yeah it would be pointless if JJ Hickson did it...but its Lebron Freaking James, he is the face of the NBA and everything he does is put to a higher standard and he needs to stop being a dick. He's been a dick all season long, talking crap, dancing when his team is winning, staring guys down after he does someting cool...its been annoying as hell. He can do whatever he wants, but it doesnt mean he should. And whoever defends him can rationalize it however they want, but they guy has been all about himself this year, with the big FA coming up, he's been selfish, and he's been an a-hole. I'm sick of it.

I think everybody should

I think everybody should take a step back, and get off his tip. That man is not perfect, and I think it's pretty wack that people still complain about him not shaking hands. I don't care about him dancing on the bench either. I never knew basketball was a job that had to be taken with stoic attitudes. I would have a good time too if I was the best player in the NBA. It's no coincidence that the best player has the most fun with playing the game.

Its not that he is

Its not that he is dancing...its the way he does it as like he is saying "in your face" to the other teams when he does it. I loved when Noah called him out on it...I hate Noah, but I really liked that he did that. Theres no need for that crap. I personally would want to go kick the crap out of him if he was dancing around if my team was playing him. No there is no need to take your job so seriously and I agree that its ok to have some fun. I hate when guys say "oh he's smiling, he's nota true competitor" bogus...but cmon. Its not that hard to stand up and cheer when somehting good happens, or clap your hands...why do you need to dance around like a guy straight off Cats.

Joakim Noah did the exact

Joakim Noah did the exact same things in college, so it was pointless for him to call anyone out on taunting.

I say let him have fun. Dancing is hurting nobody but the people that pay attention. The game is played on the court.

as far as this statement

as far as this statement goes, lebron was 100% spot on. Raptors fans should be more concerned about their team losing games then what lebron had to say.

Who cares if he said that

Who cares if he said that give me a break get off his back about everything.
Also not sure what series u watched last year but Lebron was the only reason they close in the Orlando series.
Guys who played 15-20 years in the league and never won a thing talked a lot more than him.

LeBron has been told that he

LeBron has been told that he was going to be the best since he was 12. When you are in the public eye from that age as much as he was, it is going to go to your head.

Yeah but were they at some

Yeah but were they at some point the number 1 guy...the face of the league as a whole? I doubt it. All I'm saying is that its not that hard to be classy.

Good point with Noah...I hated him in college, and I still hate him, as I pointed out earlier...most of which is due to his supremely annoying gator chop and antics (the other portion is watching him shoot free throws)...but Joakin Noah is not the face of the NBA. Lebron James is.

Is Lebron a classy guy? I thought he used to be. He always seemed like a hard worker, and a guy who put the team first and didnt really care about himself. For some reason, that perception has changed in my opinion. Yeah he's good, he can do whatever he wants to do...but why does he? Why cant he be better than that? Be classy. Thats not that much to ask.

You become a winner and

You become a winner and champion when you no longer have to say that you are one. Other people do it for you.
