What the heck does appaernt mean? What does France have to do with anything? Actually his mom originally named him "Le Bro" because she can't spell to well.

Who's Labron,you think if someone was going to critisize,they could at least spell the name right.Not to smart,must be a Wiz fan.
Well, you'd think anyone that chooses to write these comments would also choose to use correct punctuation. Place 1 space after a comma and 2 spaces after a period. It is nice to use correct spelling, so for your info, the word is "criticize".
So, I guess you're not too smart--must be a CLE fan.

Dang, that Lu Braun's mom sure is a goof-ball. I guess she is more proof that money doesn't change you for the better. She is kinda like "putting earrings on a hog". Must not have gotten any lately--are all Lah Brown's ddady figures in jail? Maybe she needs to do a conjugal visit.
Poof your gone!! Re-write your post because this topic is about Lebron and not his mother. Don't hate the player hate the game.

I'm a Cavs fan just like the next guy, but come on aren't there other players on the team as well not just one guy. I know that Lebron is a good player but that's all he is a basketball player not God.

The crowd was great? Sure, if you dig phony fan sounds and noise pumping through loudspeakers. I can't stand going to games anymore, they've turned it into a bogus mind-numbing experience.

Couple of Key points:
1. LeBron is an amazing athlete; he is fast, strong, big and explosive-there's no denying that.
2. LeBron can dunk over anyone if he gets a path. Look at the end of game 4. Congrats, LeBron-you really got The Q rockin'on that throwdown.
3. BUT-LeBron does not have the total package-making him slightly shall I say, overblown. To have the total package, he needs to be able to CONSISTENTLY knock down mid and long range jumpers that are available to him, before the double and triple teams rotate-so he doesn't have to wait all game for that lane to open so he can make an amazing dunk that is by the way still worth just 2 points. The young man still has lots of development ahead of him. He is guardable-clearly. If he could make outside shots with great regularity, then he would be all that he is cracked up to be. I dislike Kobe Bryant-but he is unguardable as he can hurt you from anywhere on the floor on a consistent basis,(he can shoot from anywhere) and anyone who cannot see this fact is just in denial. LeBron is a work in progress, and you biased, blind Cav fans need to really look at reality: The double and triple teams will always come at him. LeBron will need to become a great outside shooter if he plans to become the real 'King James'.

Okay, grammar lesson for you. Should be "Poof, you're gone"

Since it is basketball, I don't hate the player, I don't recognize the player. Might as well be playing "harass the cops" like his mom does.

So
So......I am saying he is OVER-RATED!
I am saying he is not the complete player.
I am saying he has a long way to go, and while he is young, the clock is ticking.
I am saying being an explosive dunker is terrific for the fans, but in the end you will need to do other things reliably to win a championship.
I am saying he is limited and therefore not enough to single-handedly beat the Celts.
I am saying it will take years for him to be as good as Kobe and 1.5 decades for him to be as good as Jordan was. We will never see another MJ....not in this lifetime.
I am saying he could get cleanly rejected the next time he attempts an in your face dunk and end up on his back the fair way. Just because he makes an emphatic dunk does not mean the series is over., or that the momentum has utterly shifted. The Garden is not an easy place to change the odds.
The dunk will be a great highlight, and when the LeBrons are fishing, then they can reminisce.
