    Jimmy,  please stop trying to convince us of LeBron's philanthropy.   Most of the events you allude to are ones to which he does not even show up in person unless the cameras are there.  Is he the only one?  No.  You could fill a book with athletes who've tried to look like better people than they really are.  If the new standard for rating athletes' morals is whether or not they've committed rape, then the bar is simply set too low. 

    Just listen to LeBron.  Listen to his words and their context.  It's not about team with him, it's really not.  For LeBron, it's all about himself.  To his credit, he's beginning to  learn that he cannot do this alone; there have been recent press conferences wherein he's given credit to others.  But just like Kobe, LeBron will shoot an off-balance, thirty five foot shot with a man wide-open or cutting to the basket with the game on the line.  Stupid, selfish ball.  No amount of propaganda can make up for selfish play on the court.  LeBron likes to bump his coaches when he pouts and doesn't get his way.  That's twice now with two different coaches.  It's no accident.  And the refs in this league really do give him a wide, wide berth with the whistle.  It's sad.

    He'll get his ring.  Not this year, but it's coming.  I'll be shocked if he mentions anyone but himself in that post-game presentation of his MVP.  Shocked.  He won't mention the fact that he had support from high school coaches; he won't mention the spring-board to his success that was the Cavaliers; he probably won't even mention his own teammates or coaches.  He'll talk about himself, probably in the third person, and he'll walk off the stage with contempt for his doubters. 

    And right now, at this stage of his career, that is the true essence of this guy.  It's funny how many people in history have ascended to greatness with help from others, only to claim they did it themselves.

    Soups, amen brother.  Very nicely summed up.  As great as he is, you hit the nail on the head.  Hope you are ready for the illogical retort from the" man" who claims not to idoloze pro athletes!!

    In Response to Miami finally loses but James allowed to smash into Chandler and get to line again and again:
    It has become an ugly part of the game and the league needs to step in and outline what can and cannot be done. As we saw w/ the egregious call on Pierce last time we played the Heat, when LBJ sent him flying with a shoulder/forearm shiv... and they said 'blocking foul'... this black eye on the sport has to stop. You cannot let 265lb players get running starts and throw their bodies into others and somehow call the man whose body was sacrificed and thrown aside for a foul b/c their feet may not have been perfectly set or they made some minimal reactionary contact with the freight train that hit them. Disgusting

    You just answered your own post. The defender has to remain absolutely motionless with feet established position. Big Baby is the only Celt who can and will take a charge without even flinching. Those are the rules.

    In Response to Re: Miami finally loses but James allowed to smash into Chandler and get to line again and again:
    I think that they should call the games fairly... I don't want to 'explain' why Kobe deserved to be paraded to the line in the 4th quarter when he was either not touched at all or barely grazed, b/c he is a 'star'??... I don't want to have to 'explain' why a defender took a ribcage rattling blow to his solarplex and yet the man that flung his body like a weapon into him gets two FT's. These things don't happen to the Celtics big 3, and I'd feel unhappy if they did. We have a blue collar team of old school pro's who play the game right and last year that wasn't rewarded with a fair 4th quarter game 7 and if it happens this year in the playoffs with James it will crush my spirit.
    Posted by rameakap

    It applies to all stars. I believe that the last shot to beat the Knicks in NY by PP, he actually pushed the defender aside to get his shot off. There is favoritism towards stardom. It all balances out unless you have more studs.

    well, if lebron can do it, i say we send davis in there and let him flatten bosh into a cheap little wimpy pancake.  320 lb vs. 230 lb, we know who will win.  labaron spends most of his time blustering over players who weigh 40 less than him anyway.  so what's 90 lb difference when we're throwing ourselves around.  Or let shak, all 350 of him start to plow around like lebron, and just happen to send band aid wade to the ice tub for a while.

    It's basketball, not the octagon. Maybe we should throw Shaq into an NFL game and see how long he survives that kind of physicality. Not long.

    He'll just pirouette threw the lane like a ballerina and score. Rather see Shaq in a tutu and coconut cups for a brassiere. That would be sexy. Sexy because he can't score. Just occupies space. Why doesn't Shaq take the charges on LBJ?

    In Response to Miami finally loses but James allowed to smash into Chandler and get to line again and again : It is absolutely disgusting the way the league is bent upon making Lebron into an icon.  Yes, he is a very talented player.  But he is also a picturebook example of why there should be a category of flagrant charge.  He can come barreling into a player and knock the heck out of them, only to be called for a charge.  At the same time, Baby hugs a guy and gets called for a flagrant foul. This is beyond ridiculous.

    I saw the end of the first and the entire second half. Miami is a good team, but not amongst the elite. Maybe in the future, but not this season. Dallas beat Miami on Miami's home's home court. IMO Dallas is probably the 3rd best team in the west behind the Spurs and Lakers. I love to watch a team of egomaniacs lose again.

    LeBron commits a 'player control foul' 6-7x a game, gets called once, and cries about it. He travels another 6-7x a game, gets called once, and cries about it. I think Pierce probably gets away with 1-2 of each call a game, as do several all-stars around the game. The extend to which LeBron takes it, and to which the refs look the other way, is what is sickening

    In Response to Re: Miami finally loses but James allowed to smash into Chandler and get to line again and again : Ummm that shows me that Pierce now averages 5-6 trips to the line so he used to average 9-10 when he had nobody on his team. wade had shaq and Wade gets called much more fairly then LeBron. He is an excellent slasher who was bange dup for a few years b/c he'd do Rondo like things and be put on his rear. Bron fouls others the WRONG way and gets sent to the line for it, which is the point of this thread. If Wade was covered by guys 2" and 35 lbs shorter than him and tossed them aside with forearms or was tyraveling and then bodychecking PF-C's b/c his 265lb frame can take it (instead of slipping in through them and being knocked down by the arns of rthe bigs) it would be another story. Sigh, some just don't get it

And we will not "lay off " MeBron........you don't call the shots around here, and no one cares what you think anyway.

    Wow, 10 consecutive posts disagreeing with people.  The record is 12, set by martini - but that's a story for another day.  Talk about not having a life, you are the pot calling the kettle black.  Not one positive thing about the Celtics in 10 posts - nice job!
    Don't care if you agree with JJ or not - he is a fraud who predicts dominance for his team, then hides when they lose.  What would you call it?  And I never called him a troll.  You, on the other hand.........................

    14 as of now.  But couldn't you have found that out without asking me publicly?

    I don't like cheese with my wine.  The tastes don't match.  I like subtlety.  Like Paul Pierce's fakes, first step, change of speed, etc.  LeBron's trucking through the lane is kind of like a huge dose of Jalapeno.  Disgusting!!

    In Response to Re: Miami finally loses but James allowed to smash into Chandler and get to line again and again : This is true, although I am not old enough to have seen wilt and Oscar Shaq was mauled his entire career and b/c he was 7'1" and 300+ they only called about a quarter of the times he was hit hard enough to knock another center to the floor b/c it looked like he was taking less abuse or was just so big that wa sthe only real way to defend him. with LeBron there needs to be an edict by the league, not mentioning his name but sayign that if a player leaves the grounds as he slashes into the paint and his body connects with another player who is jumping straight up, it is a non-call, even if there are no set feet and one or both players end up on the ground. If there is a swinging forearm by an offensive player, not the gently barely seen type with MJ in '98 or Pierce last week vs NY... but the blatent shoves of LBJ... that is an offensive foul.
    Posted by rameakap


    Youre a little off base about Shaq.

    Shaq received tremendous favoritism while with the Lakers (as all Lakers do). He was legendary for smashing defenders with elbows in the post for position, knocking them flying and never being called for it. Shaq was Lebron-like in that regard. He should have fouled out of every game with what he got away with.

    He took his share of hits too but he got away with murder in the post.

    And I'm saying it would be worth it to see Davis or Shaq turn one of those into a sidewalk slam and just bury labaron a quarter inch deep into the wood.  Someone has to do it.  If I played with a dude like that I would get so sick of it I wouldn't care what happens.  It reaches a point where enough is enough.

    It will be interesting to see if the referees allow the same level of "star calling" moving forward or if this game is a remnant from last year. So far, they have not allowed Lebron to travel and charge against the Celtics this year. I really hope that this is an aberration and not a sign of things to come.

    well yes, you are exactly right, so why is mebron flying in with MMA moves down the lane trying to knock people out?  i'm talking a one time self defense, send a message, put the brat down for a nap so he can think aobut what he is doing, not de-volving the nba into an ongoing scrum.

    a bully only gets away with what he can get away WITH.

    Well, the little fairy running the NBA likes it this way. Lebron is an NBA poster boy and as such is allowed to get away with just about anything.

    Ive seen too much of him pushing players, ramming into them, elbowing them...then whinning to the refs.. Never a T called on the kid either.

    Then some people come on this forum and cry the NBA and its refs dont cheat. How two faced.  Its been going on for quite a while but I guess it sells tickets/merchandise.   Money is the bottom line and true, longtime NBA followers just have to suffer with it or move on to greener pastures...

    anyone see Kobe get a double tech and booted out of a game the other day.  apparently he was so pissed they finally called a charge on him that he was infuriated and just showed how used to special treatment a few players in the league are used to getting night in and night out.  it is pretty embarrasing as a fan of the game to watch the league and the refs continue to fail at just calling a clean game straigt up.  shouldn't be so hard to do since basically everyone calls the integrity of the league officiating into question all the time.  maybe that wouldn't happen if they just called the game and not the players.  sort of feel like it is watching what would be historically considered a disgrace or tragecy of the game like the black sox in baseball's history.  I hope this era is looked at like the steroid era of baseball once it is written into history.
