I respect your article as it relates to the basketball aspects but that's about it. Who are you to question Deshawn Stevenson as a person? Do you know anything about him outside of the court and quotes related to the game? It's a GAME. The fact that you are suggesting that he is not a good person is ridiculous. Why don't you analyze the trash-talking basketball aspects of this "rivalry" and leave the moral judgments aside.

Stephenson needs to get his own gimmick instead of stealing the "You can't see me" from John Cena. I don't see how him using someone else's gimmick makes him look that good.

The transition from deshawn showing his true character to lebron talking to a 7yr old is some weak writing. I mean what is that proving. Lebron is doing just as much to hype this and it is what it is. Its fun to talk about but none of it really matters in the end. The better team will win regardless.

All you wizard's fan commenting on a Ohio newspaper article is adding to the hype

How is Stevenson a good person? he had sex with a 14-yr old, and he obviously has aggression problems. Yeah, sounds like a great person to me...

LBJ is a class act. I may eat crow someday, but when he bolts from Cleveland I actually think I won't hate him for it. We'll (Cleveland) have given him more than enough time to win a title.
Cleveland's cursed. I was 1 in 1964, don't remember the Browns' title. Sigh.
LeBron is a cless act all the ay, and to think he is only 23...Not being biased here, but all Cleveland sports have always been class acts

The Cavs have been the better, more consistent team in this series - but to call the Wizards out for trash-talking and being "punk" is ridiculous. Lebron started this by talking trash to Gilbert at the free-throw line in '06 (and yes - that was pretty low as evidenced by it spurring an NBA rule change) and then talking smack about the Wizards and Deshawn in particular to Deshawn's best friend, Drew Gooden. and, last I checked it was Lebron who rented out a club in DC and played a diss-track from his down-low buddy Jay-Z and allowed his career 10th man (and other down-low buddy) Damon Jones to blast the Wiz in front of Caron Butler - probly one of the classiest players in the NBA along with Antawn Jamison. Well - he prob couldn't do it in Cleveland cuz there are no nice clubs. BOOM. Two words Cleveland, Ohio - NAFTA and Subprime - enjoy your 15 minutes, rednecks.

You are correct - I didn't know how to spell probably - thanks for "righting" it down for me. I knew I should have gone to school in Ohio. Pro'verb has just dissed back at Hova so I think we can all say its over, am I right? Ah, if only.
Alas the funniest and perhaps, saddest thing to say about the whole Lebron-Deshawn-Jay-Z thing is that it is probably one more suggestion that Lebron will be breaking Cleveland's heart and, to quote a Jay-Z/Wheezy song from American Gangster, singing "Hello Brooklyn".
