Congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers and the fans in Cleveland. We salute the efforts and the excellent play of your Cav's. Lebron James and team played to win this whole series. As it happens it is our turn this year to go on to the finals, you didn't make it easy. I give thanks to God for the victory, it was an awesome series and thank you D12 you carried us to victory in game 6.

NY can thank us later for helping make the decision easier for LeBron to opt out of his contract. He'll be a Knick in 2011.

LeBron is a punk for not talking to media after the game.

Thanks for the empathy...now kick the Sh*t out of Kobe and the Fakers. Also, to those that think the LBJ will opt out of Cleveland to NY..why would you think so?? This is media hype and NY has a team with less talent than the current Cavs. The Cavs can also slear enough cap space to sign LBJ and another star (Bosh...Wade) while the NBA has announced that the cap will actually be lower than projected and the Knicks can sign only one star.LBJ will be in Clevland past 2010.
Here's what I see from the Cavs in this off season. They will sign Shaq for a year...after Ben wallace is off the books. Not sure what's in store for Joe Smith and Wally. Shaq will be one and done, clearing up the cap space for LBJ and another star to run with James.
Good luck and BEAT THE FAKERS!!!!!

At first I was on the "What a punk" bandwagon but now I just say it's over and done with. Leave the guy alone.

Sure he should have talked to the press and certainly should have shook hands but I can't blame the guy for just wanting to be alone.

He's only 24 and has spent probably the last 8 years of his life being surrounded by people telling him how great he is and can do no wrong. Sure he's got some growing up to do but I'll give him a chance.

MAGIC IN SIX......AGAIN!!!!

A great athlete once said: "If I can take all the good things that happen to me, I must realize that I MUST take all the bad things that do."

LeBron James' escape from his RESPONSIBILITY to address the media shows that he is willing to be professional under only the best of times.

There have been thousands of athletes who have lost championships before him gracious enough to allow other people to do their job (media) after defeat.

He states that it is an honor to be in the company of great that he has been compared to, well he must understand that those athletes had the maturity to face the questions that come with losing.

It's called grace.

It's one of the things that make you WORTHY of being a champion. I believe that he never will be one until he aquires this trait and puts it in with the rest of his great skills.

Apologies in advance. My question is unrelated to the article. For a season ticket holder, what is the price of a playoff ticket? IOW if you paid 80 clams for a seat throghout the regular season, does that hold true for playoff tickets? I suspect the ridiculous prices I see on stubhub surrounding the NBA finals tickets are the results of fans inflating their season ticket?

24 true, but there's still no excuse for his sorry behavior. Dwight was suprised he didn't acknowledge his the magic team after the defeat.

The biggest story here is the TOTAL AND COMPLETE humiliation of the Cavs.. all those wacky antics, they must regret doing them now... hey Cavs, take a picture of this: YOU LOSE. Or, King James, WITNESS THIS A-- KICKING.
As a Lakers fan, I'd rather see them play Orlando. At least they're largely a mature and professional team, and if they beat the Lakers there probably won't be too much extra cirricular activities a la the biggest Wacko of them all, Kevin Garnett. Look, if you win the title, you really don't have to rub it in like he did last year with that hooting & hollaring.. thank goodness that dude is sitting at home this year and we don't have to put up with him or the rest of the hated Celtics. I'll go as far as to say the sports world is a much much better place when Boston teams suck. You see, Boston fan, for lack of a more derogatory term, takes this stuff WAAAAAYYYYY too seriously.. they actually live & die by it. The rest of of half-way normal folks can take it or leave it.

You see LJ's story does not hold water...He claims that he is a winner! A winner of what? This is not high school. He has been in the NBA 6 years...Got to the Finals and was swept away. He said: We at NIKE make a better product than Starbury's. I don't recall him goin to Vietman, where his shoes are made. He is a big, overhyped, crybaby. Can you recall MJ, MAGIC, Russell, Bird act in this manner...No, after the battle, give a half ass nod, handshake and walk away. That is learned as a child. He wants the fame, the accolades, and his self proclaimed name "KING JAMES", today he is shiit for brain...Le'Bron. Sore loser. Did he not know that he is from OHIO. Losing and Ohio as synonomous. GO MAGIC

It seems like the City of Angels puts sports before everything else in this world. Don't be a hypocrite.

Even if James went over shook hands with Gundy, gave a hug to Ewing, and hopped on Dwight you Magic fans still be complaining.

There you go again: Trying to think ahead. You are not a mind reader. Do what is right and then maybe you can talk. We had won fair and square...there not much that you could say to stop the celebration. Your king chose to take his stance. Has he walked away when his team won...NO...he loves the camara and others kissing his rear. I guess he'll never shake anyone else' hand. He will never win a championship in Cleveland. GO MAGIC!!

Yea he can't win a championship because he doesn't have any help. He has a right to be frustrated yea it looks bad him walking off but a lot of players have done worse in that league.

Some role model James portrayed himself as a hurt little girl. Hope he was proud of the way he stank up his reputation and taught all his young fans what being a thug loser is. This is what the NBA has for your kids except it is blown over just like the drugged up NFL and all "professional" sports.

I'll be the first to tell ya that sports isn't an all out Christian thing. Your gonna have people in these organizations do messed up stuff. As for Lebron there is no need to call him a thug.
