The Decision has led to The Derision, and many are now calling LeBron James a choker.

Interesting article, I think there is a lot of truth, When im nervous in games i tend to be bad, but once i start relaxing I start to get into rhythem and hitting my shots. Lebron you can tell was overwhelmed with all the neg. feedback from fans and he collapsed underpressure, I personally dont like lebron as a person, but theres no doubting his ability. If he focused on improving his jump,post moves instead of relying on his athleticism and making stupid comments he would have one a championship already. Lebron will have his day, but until then he should focus on the game, instead of speaking to the media and looking down on other players especially since he still has accomplished his main goal: an NBA championship, individually he has accomplished alot but basketball is a team game, and as dallas proved you need help from every single player every night, not just 3 allstars.0

The mental aspect gets really overlooked in professional sports. Confidence and momentun goes a long way in most sports. I remember the Spurs working with Tony Robbins…..0

I remember the whole sports psychology and basketball movement starting with one guy in particular: Nick Anderson. He has a fear of shooting foul shots ever since he missed two clutch baskets when with the Magic. His fear really got to him, in fact he shot just 40% for one season it was so bad.0

That’s an interesting take. I wouldn’t put too much stock in it though.
As for saying LeBron would be best served watching the finals game tape over and over again, I don’t think that is necessarily the right approach.
Remember, Dirk said he hasn’t watched a single second of the game tape from the 2006 finals where the Mavs lost to the Heat.
Ya’ll know what happened next time he got there.0

You train your mind to act as though it never happened. Thats what you do. It never happened. You need to want to destroy your opponent too. You should have a desire to take his heart out of his chest with no mercy. Miami does not have that. Wade does a lil, but it never showed in the finals. Lebron is scared to fail and it is effecting his play at the end of crucial games. He needs to stop being afraid to fail and start knowing he is gonna get it done, not hoping, but knowing. I can’t stand him regardless. I don’t like the things that comes out of that kids mouth. Kind of a b!tch.0

Usually have it sneak back in subconsciously. I agree with this article, LeBron should watch this again and again, no matter how painful it is. Dirk says he never watched 2006, but it honestly, seemed to take 5 years for him to finally get over it. You did not see him bounce back that next year with confidence. It was a long and arduous process, that might have been good confronting the issue. Forgetting it happened is one way of doing something, but it is not that easy. Learning from your mistakes is not showing regret, it is showing growth. If LeBron wants to get over it, he should confront it and let it numb him. But, people who say they try to just forget what happens, or never admit to their mistakes and move on, well, that past will probably come back to haunt them.0
