Great win, the rest of the team is finally stepping up, but what the hell is going on with James? I've never seen him look so flat. I love the guy, but in this series he's not looking like himself. It's the playoffs buddy, time to rise up.
She needs to shut her GHETTO mouth and start paying back all the welfare shes' lived off of her entire life. Now her son has to support her just like the taxpayers have had too.

Scoop,
Informative, insightful gamer. The question remains, is good defense and inconsistent offense enough to get the Cavs a win in Boston?
The answer is "maybe." The Cavs had a chance to steal game one in what was probably the ugliest game of any playoff series, even with LeBron playing the worst game of his career. They also had a nice lead after the first quarter in game two before they went flat. This series is a stare down. The first team to blink will lose. If either offense gets rolling, the other team will be in trouble.

Typical Lebron hater! So what, who cares, everyone knows about his mom, but Lebron is definetly a class act. He handles himself like a man. He doesn't brag about his talent and he doesn't talk smack about his team or their opponets. He's the captain of the team and does an excellent job. If you're going to talk junk about him, please speak the truth.

Kudos to Lebron for making something out of himself with the mother that he has. She is the opposite of a role model. Anyway, I think the home team wins every game in this series, I still haven't seen anything to tell me otherwise. One thing I have seen is that Lebron's supporting cast isn't nearly as bad as everyone wants to think it is.

Cut the momma some slack, after all, it was just Mother's Day. She's just looking out for her billion dollar baby, who takes more hard fouls and head shots then any other player in the league.

You have two screen names now huh! Fed up and get real. Yes, she was wrong for yelling at the Celtics but Lebron handled it. It's hard to continue seeing your son getting demolished on the court intentionally, but she needs to control herself. As far as to her being on welfare, there are millions of people on welfare so you probably need to direct that negative comment towards every person who's on welfare including men.

Way to go Cavs that was an awesome game. We want the big win tomorrow. The win was a team effort and we need to play like that every game.

I am not prejudiced, but pushing all this ghetto crap down my throat makes me very sick. That broad now owns a 3 story home on Portage Lakes that is big enough to hold a "family" not just one person--if Lebron is so proud of momma--why doesn't he move his family in that house and pay taxes to the area that took care of them for so long. What do you mean it turns people away from marrying--if you love someone so much that you can't keep it in your pants and she can't keep her legs together till they marry--then you are as worthless as the rest of them.

Great defensive game. The nationals continue to say its the C's not playing good but I say MB has the Cavs playing the best defensive ball in the playoffs. MB's offense sucks to no end but hopefully that can be rectified in the offseason this time. Still if we play d like that in every game we can beat anybody, east or west. Kudos to Wally, Boobie, Anderson, Joe Smith, Delonte (gritty) and Ben Wallace. LBJ's the obvious so I need not mention him. Anyone notice that we finished the game with Z getting some good rest on the bench. He's been playing like an All Star so the rest could be hughe for Wednesday
The Gloria James stuff is being overblown. Any person standing right there would have done the same thing. Check the replay, everyone sitting down there was yelling at the Celtics players. Stop hating and start appreciating.

And you never had premarital sex? Was that by choice or couldn't you find a partner? Someone needs to pray for a little forgiveness the next time they go to church before they step up on their soap box and start preaching to the world.

Joe Smith is a great fit for blue collar Cleveland. A quiet guy who just dilligently goes about doing his job. He is grateful to be finally playing for a contender and we are lucky to have him.

Are you serious?????????? Me and my dad was just talking about, how much Class LEBRON has considering the fact he came from GLORIA, that guy presents himself in a well respected manner. I respect him as a person and basketball player. I guess nobody has kids out of wedlock these days?? give me a break.

any ways

Lebron is doing the right thing, he is getting the team involved because he knows he cant win this game by him self. IT IS A TEAM SPORT!
