Everytime something comes up with Lebron, we have people posting about his mother, kids, welfare and other things. Get over it. So what Lebron's mom made a comment to the Celtics players. You people are killing me. He is a great player and whatever his mother is doing is none of our business and you all seem to know so much about his child hood as if you were their and you was not. STOP IT you no nothing about Labron or his family. Maybe you all with thr negative comments should look at your own back yards before commenting on his. I'm sure it is alot of mess back their that you wish like H3** you can throw out. LEBRON do your thing sweetie & to his mother hats off to you for just being his mother.
He's not a great player--and i think the public knows enough about his family that we can post our freedom of speech here if we want. I for one pay my taxes--never been on wlefare, if labron is so smart why doesn't he get his mother some help? I'm sure he could afford that vs lawsuits coming from her attact's. and where is his father and "father figure" all this time?

That would be called a pre-nup you moron. If he doesn't marry her who cares. He is a better father to those boys then his father was to him and he married Gloria. So who cares, at least those boys have a father figure in their life!!
A prenup may protect what he already has, but Lebron will be earning lots of money for a long time. Anything acquired during a marriage is marital property and a prenup cannot change the law.

I like how LeBron is playing in this series especially last night. He must continue to play his game and rely on his teammates to knock down the shots once they're open. I feel that if he continues the issue of trying to get to the whole, this will keep their defense in constant motion which will start to be a wear and tear on them older Celtics. The Cavs need to make it a grindy out game again tomorrow if nothing else make sure the games are close enough for LB to win it at the end. Go Cavs!!

Sorry, but what he does in his personal life or when the camera's are turned off is his business. And if thats the worst crime he commits, well then good for him. He is a human being after all.

Had my son watched his behavior on the court last night he would have been taught a valuable lesson about sportsmanship. Lebron handled himself with class and dignity and didn't allow the other player to engage him in a fight. I was really proud of his actions, and very glad he is representing Cleveland.

Great game. Nice win for the Cavs. Hopefully, they will steal one Wednesday in Boston. GO CAVS !!!
The question of the day is why didn't Gloria James get arrested for what she did by attacking the Boston players who ended in the stands last night? She must have been drunk or high as a skunk to do that.
You don't get arrested for standing up and yellin at people. I'd hardly call what she did "attacking." Maybe "embarassing." But hardly criminal.

Agreed... also, did anyone see what Garnett mouthed during the segway to commercial when he was beating his chest... everyone in my living room thought it was fu@##ng fag@##s
You know, someone else made this comment, too. Do you remember around when it happened? I've still got the game on Tivo, and I could dial it up. I'd love to YouTube KG spouting some anti-gay slurs.

Garnett is always saying that kind of crap. Every time he makes a play. But I have to say that I saw LeBron a couple of times last night drop an F bomb that was caught by cameras!!
An emotional F bomb is one thing, but anti-gay slurs are another.

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.
No, now she gets to pay into the system like everyone else. Sheesh.

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.
Hmmm.... people who have pre-marital sex are worthless. Judgemental much?

Towards the end of the game. Definately second half. I'd guess late 3rd quarter/early 4th quarter. If I remember, AV was in the game, if that helps. If you put get it on youtube, let me know.

And I agree that LeBron has been one of the best role models (as a huge star) I can think of in pro sports. Not to be racist, but the black community does have a stigma about fathers running off, I think it's great that he takes care of his girlfriend and his kids. The only thing he's ever done is drive too fast in a car. Lock up almost everyone on this forum if you think that's so terrible.

Yeah that was it. The PD covered it. That has to be more embarrassing than his air balls. She needs to be in a more dignified spot in the stands and away from the players. I hated that when my mom showed up for my big games, with a championship on the line, and made a spectacle out of herself, back in third grade. Many it was second grade. Anyway I hated it.
You made it throught the third grade? Shoot, even Jethro Bodine got to the 6th grade. Now I understand.

Maybe he should marry his baby's momma. It might be the moral thing to do but not necessarily the wisest. From a strictly financial viewpoint, that would make her entitled to HALF OF EVERYTHING. I might think twice about marriage myself.

now everyone is on the wagon. After we were down 0-2 there was nothing but haters. It is a new series and Lebron still hasn't played a great game. Remember game 5 last year in Detroit!
Cavs in 6
I Absolutely Agree - The Cavs should already know exactly how the garden is going to react for game 5 and Lebron finally getting out of that horrible slump, with the surrounding cast getting their baskets to fall. Let's tell those Boston pricks that the Tea Party will be held in Cleveland for Game 6 ( which will be the clincher)

LOL. If you are going to bag on somebody's spelling at least get "your" vs "you're" correct.
