King James...

his greatness gets taken for granted sometimes.

I think if the goaltend was called like it should have been it changes everything. The Pacers set up differently on defense and the Cavs may run a different play on offense. The guy annoys the hell out of me. Jumping on tables and shit because you pulled out a last second win against the Pacers, a team you should dominate at home? lol

pacers have given the cavs all they want and then some in this series. cavs supporting cast for lebron looks weak right now so imo if cavs are to win game 7 today king james is going to have to carry the team on his shoulders.

Nobody said it was weak after all the trades. All I heard was how that cancer Thomas was gone and how great all these young pieces like Hood, Clarkson and Nance would be, along with the veteran Hill. Much improved, and the pieces to get back to the finals. That's all I heard. Now that they are struggling it's because Lebron has no help? That's total BS IMO. He wanted Love, he got him and he wanted Thompson and they kept him too. There is plenty of talent around Lebron. That's not the problem.

Maybe Lebron is the problem and reason why others struggle to play well with him. Kyrie seemed to believe that. So did Thomas. Maybe it's true. Michael never had stars bailing on him and he always made everyone around him better. Does Lebron do that? I don't think so.

the pieces they got around lebron were SUPPOSED to be good but they haven't played like it for the most part. Love seems to be injured too often since he came to the cavs but when healthy he has usually played well.

I think Lebron is good individually but not good at getting others around him better.They all stand around and just look to shoot a 3,they have little movement all standing around.Watching LBJ pound the ball till either attacking or shooting a jumper.I blame the lack of offense movement.

lebron will be gone from cleveland after this season so he will give it everything he has today as it could be his last game with them.

They were damn good when the got there ... until the Lebron effect started wearing on them.

I don't think you can even compare Lebron to Jordan or Kobe,he doesn't have the same mentality.He routinely complains about none calls and always switches off as a defender.Very rarely does he try and stop whomever he is defending,usually plays about 5 feet off him and just switches the pick and roll forcing a big to try and defend a guard or small forward while he stands and watches...Doesn't have that killer instinct the afore mentioned did.However Jordan got most every call where as LBJ gets hit quite often with nothing to show for,but his whining about no call drives me nuts.You don't just stand there and not get back on D like he does.

Lebron would not come out after halftime if he played in the era of the Bad Boyss from Detroit. Game is called much tighter now, and he whines about the little contact they have today.

after barely getting past indiana the cavs are starting to put it all together against toronto. finally the pieces around lebron are stepping up and giving him the help that he has badly needed. but since this might be lebron's last hurrah with the cavs i think he is trying real hard to bring another championship to cleveland before he leaves again.
