the reporter who asked that question should resign...if he ever played ball himself he would recognize also the self-initiated stupidity

Way to go Lebron you are showing much more class then any of the wizards. Play your game and best of luck in the series.

Pat, Another great piece. The mental stability of this young basketball star; OUR local, home grown, loyal, basketball star, is something that is just one of many traits that make him one of the best talents in the NBA. His personality is something that I cherish as much as the dunks I see him make on the court. He is definitely ahead of his years.

That being said, I hope he drops a 50-spot on the Wizzes in game 4. I know that if he does it, there will be no hands waving in front of his face other than a beaten defender, and I would bet he doesn't girate at any point unless its in the action of moving past 2 or 3 Washington players in the lane.

Go Lebron, Go Cavs.

Hope the Washington Soulja boys enjoyed that one... might be the highlight of their careers and all, but it will ultimately be a blip on the radar screen. LeBron knows it, and so does anyone with any sense. Cavs in 5...

Pat got it right in describing the Washington crowds. I'll rank them pretty low when it comes to crowd support. Just like the government they hesitate to commit to anything until they are sure it is a winner. Then they act like they have been there all along. Like Hillary and NAFTA.

I agree. This area should be very proud of the way Lebron handles himself, not acting the fool like so many NBA players. He does act like someone twice his age, while Stevenson and others act half their age.

Here;Here,isn't it refreshing to see such a solid young man who Get's It,true class,what's even more funny is on the Wash Post site even their own fans are embarrassed with DeSwaun's actions.

Bravo ! Michael Jordan would never let a team of his play the way the Cavs do from time to time. It's inexcusable the way this team takes nights off and doesn't care at all. It's on coach? Brown but most of all it's on Lebron for accepting what turns out to be less than mediocrity.

lebron is overrated and if the crowd was weak then why did he let his team get wiped all over the floor. and don't forget he did miss that last free throw when he heard the crowd. so call it what u want but we know.

Your Wizards are getting OWNED. LeBron has absolutely torched them.

I've never seen a fan base be so delusional. Are they behaving this way out of frustration? Jealousy?

How many series have the Wizards won against LeBron and the Cavs? How many times have these Wizards gotten out of the first round?

And it's too early to knock LeBron for not having any rings. This is only his fifth year.

<quoted text> Series wins mean nothing, it is all about championships, of course the Cleveland Indians had "Era of Champions" up on the left field wall at Jacobs Field for many years even though they NEVER won a World Series. i guess in the city of Cleveland series wins are considered championships.
Of course Cleveland is lacking in titles. We haven't had one in my lifetime. No city is more championship-starved.

But you act as if it's some type of reflection on the people that live there. It's just sports. I see it as more of a coincidence than anything else. Eventually, it'll happen.

By the sound of your name alone,VINCE, you obviosly aren't close to being the man that Lebron is...Lebron being over-rated is like saying that you can get laid....it's just not happening...

Your absolutely right - It's jealousy and they are sad angry people. What a shame.

Yes it is very scarey that these people seem to base their existance on their sports team and just can't appreciate a good player and team when they see one - even if it's not their team. If Cleveland ever gets a championship in any sport - great, but if not, so what -it's just a game no matter what sport. It's just fun to watch those who are talented and disgusting when some behave badly and display poor sportsmanship.
