However, it just cracks me up at all the LeBron haters out there. I agree he didn't get it done in the finals, but there is not one team out there that wouldn't do anything they could to get LeBron on their team.
Nobody is hating on Chris Bosh or Dwyane Wade. They didn't get it done for the Heat either.
Nobody is hating on Kevin Durant because they didn't win a Championship?
Nobody is hating on Kobe because the Lakers lost?
The Heat is a tough team and if they figure out how to play together and get there supporting cast to make a few shots when they need them, they will be in the Championship race for many years to come.

anybody can talk about anything yes, but how does, lebron is an awful basketball player because he didnt sign a little kids ball card make sense. its 2 different things and do not go hand and hand. i hated lebron james when all the hype was going on when he was in highschool. i try not to get caught up in all the media drama, i started liking and collecting lebron because he is a good player. 4 quarters do not define his career and what he has accomplished, and honestly, you know, even if he averaged a triple double and they lost the finals you would still be talking trash that he isnt any good. the comment about watered down league and his mvp's, that comment is so absurd ill let someone else answer that.
