And the Heat are losing!
Always great to see the Heat lose. It would be great to see them lose the next game. Not sure it will happen but it would make me very happy.
Miami and James annoy me. Real superstars don't try to accumulate a dream team. Bird never left, Magic never left, Jordan, Shaq, all these guys won with what they handed.
Plus, I love watching Hibbert play. Dude is a beast. You can't cover James, but all the guys on Miami look like skinny kids compared to Hibbert. The Pacers are the blue collar guys at this dance.
I agree Joe, (about Hibbert, the Pacers) but to include Shaq as one of those guys who hung in there and won with the team he was drafted by couldn't be further from the truth.
He fled Orlando for tinseltown (and Kobe) pretty much for the same reasons Labron went to the Heat.
True. But the Magic were more than competitive. The Cavs not so much.
Shaq while with the Magic made it to the NBA finals one time, same with Labron with the Cavs.
Big difference is that Labron actually hung in there longer with the Cavs (7 seasons) then Shaq with Orlando (4 seasons).
I see Labron as less of a carpetbagger than Shaq. Kind of tough for him to stay in Cleveland knowing that pretty much every season the franchise would be carried on his back.
Labron was there 7 years and you well know how competitive every season any organization run by Pat Riley is going to be.
I know that they are not a likeable group unless you are of course a Heat fan, but I can't blame Labron for taking advantage of the opportunities he had in front of him.
