Terry has certainly backed up his shit talk after playing like shit. I guess talking out his ass works for him.

Lebron is a great player but when you call yourself the King, make a decision, throw a pre-championship parade and count many rings you better back that shit up. Anyone defending him remember that. He Created this fucking monster.

You'll notice that Lebron played best when Wade was out of the game. They don't compliment each other at all unless they are in transition. They are both players that are better with the ball in their hand. Each would be on a better team with a dominant post player and great shooter. The amazing thing is they still have a very good chance to win it all when the pieces don't really fit. I'll give it up to them just for that.

I hate him for EVERYTHING he represents.

The game is for the fans. He pissed on the faces of a loyal fan base.
The sport is a team sport. He used a self-glorifying national TV special to tell his teammates for the first time that he wasn't coming back.
The sport uses a salary cap to create parity. He colluded with his buddies to try to build an empire.

Let's pretend that Lebron hits shots in the 4th quarter like Dirk does.

LeBron caught the ball 15 from the basket on the wing late in the game (back to the basket). Don't remember if he had Kidd or Marion on him at the time, and it shouldn't matter. He turned to face up (no post game), and completely settled for the jumper despite no help coming on D. He's been settling all series. The Bulls threw the f'ing kitchen sink at the guy, and it didn't matter. Not sure what's changed, but something clearly has.

James had a triple-double, but his two points in the final stanza came on a basket that was basically conceded to him, after Terry’s game-clinching triple at the other end.

Overall, he scored 17 points, but needed 46 minutes to do it. The average NBA player this year, per 46 minutes, scored 18.9.

Even with the Mavs hitting crazy shots, Miami would have won if the LeBron we expected had shown up; James’ subpar offensive efficiency is the main differentiator in the box score. It’s a recurrent theme: James is averaging 17.2 points and 3.2 free-throw attempts in the Finals -- that’s nice. He averaged 25.8 and 8.8, respectively, against Chicago -- that’s awesome.

And right now, that’s the difference. LeBron being good isn’t good enough. Miami needs great, and they’re not getting it. With King James, the Heat will still win this series. But if Viscount James keeps showing up, they’re dead meat.

Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to play the game, but I may go as far as to say LeBron James may be the greatest player to ever play the game because he is so potent offensively that not only can he score at will but he keeps everybody involved.

James, who scored a career low eight points on Tuesday, had the first triple-double in the Heat’s postseason history but his shot was still off. He finished 17 points on 8-of-19 shooting to go along with 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Early Thursday morning, James posted “Now or Never!!” on his Twitter account. Before Thursday’s game he called it the most important game of his career.

Still, James was without his touch from the outside again Thursday and he missed a critical three-point attempt with less than two minutes to the play and the Heat trailing by two points. Moments later, Dallas guard and future Hall of Famer Jason Kidd swished his third three-pointer of the game to give the Mavericks a 105-100 lead with 1:26 to play.

James had two points in the fourth quarter, giving him 11 fourth-quarter points in five games.

In 15 career playoff series as a MLB player, ARod has 276 PA, 13 HR, 38 RBI with a great .290/.396/.528 line. In 2009, during their WS year, he was the team's best hitter in the playoffs, hitting .365 with 6 HR in 14 games.

Wade sat out for just long enough to allow James to dominate the ball and rack up a few cheap assists. And with the Heat having no legitimate interior presence, 10 boards by a fucking tank of a human being isn't exactly world altering.

When you defend the game he just played, you destroy your credibility here.

"We'll see on Sunday" - sure we will. We'll see just how much public shaming it takes "King James" to finally decide to play basketball. We'll see just how embarrassed he has to be to take advantage of the unparalleled talent he's been given. Maybe we'll finally find out if he's an image conscious frontrunner or just a scared little boy. We already found out if he's a legitimate champion - nope; that's Dwayne Wade.

The good news is that maybe he'll actually work on a turnaround jumper or an up and under move in the offseason if he loses...

LeBron can't handle it, but who could?

http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/lebron-james-getting-crushed-by-nba-finals-pressure-061011

The crown is too heavy now.

It crushed Tiger Woods. Serena Williams rejected it. Peyton Manning only wears it when it suits his needs. Alex Rodriquez had it stripped from his head by performance-enhancing drugs. A rape allegation dethroned Kobe Bryant.

Michael Jordan is our last global sports icon, and even he couldn’t bear the weight of the crown in this era. Neither could Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth or Joe Montana.

LeBron James had no idea what he was signing up for when he accepted the nickname “King James,” tatted “Chosen One” across his back and teamed with Nike in pursuit of global-icon status.

There was no Facebook or Twitter when this all began. James had probably never heard of Skip Bayless or Stephen A. Smith. Cellphones didn’t double as cameras and devices to watch, send and receive porn. Hardcore sports fans weren’t in their parents’ basements dreaming of inventing Deadspin.

You want to understand LeBron James and why he is struggling in this moment, in these NBA Finals, despite Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh helping him with his crown? You must first understand the time we live in.

The crown is too heavy now.

It’s weighed down by the infinite voices with access to an athlete’s mind. It’s weighed down by our outdated insistence on viewing athletes as role models while scrutinizing their personal lives the way we would a politician. It’s weighed down by technology, the 24-hour news cycle, reality TV and the sports world’s embrace of celebrity culture.

The mountain LeBron James is trying to scale is much higher than the one Jordan, Ali and Ruth climbed.

Is James shrinking? No. He’s getting crushed.

In the self-described biggest game of his life -- Game 5 of the NBA Finals -- James recorded a harmless triple-double and a harmful, 2-point fourth quarter on a night when, because of Wade’s hip injury, the Heat needed James to perform Magic.

I’m talking Magic Johnson, the 1980 rookie who opened for Kareem at center and dropped 42, 15 and seven on the Sixers in Game 6.

In Dallas’ 112-103 victory Thursday night, James finished with 17, 10 and 10. Good numbers. Not enough. And not what Miami needed with Wade spending considerable stretches trapped in the training room receiving treatment on a hip contusion.

Of James’ 10 rebounds, only one was offensive. He missed all four of his three-point shots. He made a single trip to the free-throw line. He turned the ball over a game-high four times. On the offensive end, he left the low block in the fourth. At the defensive end, Jason Terry torched James.

James said he’s not bothered by the pressure of the Finals, of the fourth quarter. He’s in denial.

“We as a team, we played good enough to win again,” he said. “Put ourselves in position to win down the stretch. Everyone, guys made plays. They just made a few more than we did. That’s what it came down to.”

The final score says the Heat did not play good enough to win. Dallas closed the game on a 15-2 run. Miami’s penchant for late-game collapses and James’ penchant for fourth-quarter offensive disappearance in this series indicates there’s a problem.

“I don’t think it was a case of offense again tonight,” James said. “There was enough offensive play. We shot 52 percent. They shot 56 percent. We scored 103 points. They scored 113. The offense wasn’t a problem.”

It’s true: Defense wins championships. This is also true: Sometimes your best defense is a good offense.

In a single-platoon sport like basketball, when you’re blessed with unprecedented talent, you can beat up and demoralize an opponent so badly on the offensive end that you destroy his confidence on both ends of the court.

Dropping 40 on someone is intimidating and distracting.

Chris Bosh is a different player in this series compared to the Chicago series because Dirk Nowitzki is inside his head. Bosh has yet to clear his brain of Dirk’s left-handed game-winner in Game 2. It’s scary playing against someone better than you.

Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and Shawn Marion are not afraid of LeBron. They don’t respect his moves on the block. They’re thrilled James is shying away from driving the ball and challenging Tyson Chandler at the rim.

James is lost.

The Decision and this marvelous NBA season vaulted him to global-icon status. Thanks to America’s fascination with James, the anticipation for Game 5 felt like an NFL playoff game. King James is must-see TV.

We shouldn’t be surprised he’s having trouble handling the moment. There was no Skip Bayless sitting on TV dissecting Jordan daily. There was no Stephen A. Smith going on national radio insinuating problems in Jordan’s personal life. Jordan never tweeted or gave millions of detractors easy access to rip him.

Jordan was prepared to wear the crown by two parents and Dean Smith.

It’s a different era now. The crown is too heavy and many of the kids haven’t been given instructions on how to wear it.

The numbers do not lie...he's been a very good hitter in the playoffs, just as he's been a very good hitter in the regular season. Looking at a small sample size like a few poor playoff series and calling it a choke job is insane. This is baseball, not basketball.

That has everything to do with the random variance of the MLB playoffs. It says nothing about the quality of the teams he played on or how well he performed (elite and very well, respectively).


What part of he doesn't hit in big spots is so difficult for you to understand. I know you like to basically use a stat sheet to form all your opinions, but try watching a game and how a player plays in certain situations for once.
The stats allows us to see that ARod has actually been very good in clutch situations and playoff situations, instead of using our selective memories (and in your case, apparently a very poor selective memory).

In high leverage situations, he's also the same quality (.969 OPS) as he is in low leverage situatiosn (.968 OPS). http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?t=b&n1=rodrial01&year=0

So yeah, bash LeBron all you want (even though he's also generally performed well in the clutch throughout his career), but the ARod comparison makes little sense for more than a few reasons.

when things are going tough...Kobe bitched out...just like what LeBron is doing

Kobe never once had a defining finals moment...not one time...LeBron is having an all time collapse...Kobe was supposed to be a great closer...I want them to name some sort of "all time closing moment" Kobe had...they don't exist

I just love how people (and deservedly so) are piling on LeBron...but these same people think Kobe has been some sort of killer closer over the years...him and LeBron are both bitch ass frontrunners who can't close and thus, will never be a Jordan

Legit triple double?

So if he'd have gone for 20, 13 and 9 it would've been a worse game because it wasn't a triple double?

The TD is just overrated as all hell. It's just another 'convenient' stat that announcers like to yack about.

When his team needed him the most, he was all but shut out. When his team had the lead late, he was the critical factor behind a 2 minute swing that completely reversed the game.

LeBron James did not play well last night - period.

Hootie has a message for DJ's Left Nut.

The argument's been done already, he's welcome to go back to the Kobe v. LeBron thread from last year if he'd like.

http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=227877&highlight=LeBron

But I'll touch on it briefly: Kobe has had off games, certainly - but he's never run away from the moment. Many MANY times now, James has simply run scared from the pressure. Fleeing to Miami was just a symptom of the same disease.

Kobe never 'bitched out'; but he's had poor games. If you can't see the difference, I can't help you there. LeBron has flat caved in here.

And the other distinction is that Kobe has never been as physically talented as LeBron, especially now that he's aged. Kobe can be guarded. Kobe can be shut down. If you beat Kobe to his spots, he can't just run over you. He can try to alter his shot, but that requires his touch be on - sometimes it isn't. And now that his knees are giving out, he can't beat you into the lane much either. Kobe's getting by on smarts, guile and toughness.

LeBron still has the physical ability to do absolutely anything he would want on a basketball court. Yet all to often he shies away from it. He runs from the heat of the moment or lets it consume him.

Again - my beef with LeBron is, and always has been, how much better he should be. His lack of a solid mid-range game (which has been exposed when Dallas goes into a zone). His lack of any semblance of a post game (which has been exposed when Carlisle has put Kidd on him; if he had a post game the Mavs could never even consider that). All of these flaws in his game are costing his team and they're all flaws that simply shouldn't be there 8 years into his career.

And he doesn't seem to give a shit. He still sees anyone that points them out as 'haters'. He's still the least self-aware athlete I've ever seen (the 'sick' thing and his stupid 'stats' shirt speak to that).

Here's my post on the distinction between LeBron and Kobe last season (before LeBron had his yack job against Boston:


I don't think LeBron has that. I think that he's concerned that his public image may take a hit if he fails or that he may not be seen as a golden teammate if he doesn't defer on the occasional game winner. I've seen LeBron become entirely too deferential in some key moments throughout his career. Yes, he's also had occasions like the Pistons game a few years back when he scored something ridiculous 28 of his teams final 32 points. But he hasn't developed that consistent attitude just yet.

He's not a single-minded assassin out there and Kobe is. Is LeBron physically more gifted? Without question. But does he have the hard-wired killer's mentality to his game that Kobe does? Nope, I don't think he does.

I think the '07 finals is pretty demonstrative. LeBron had an abysmal finals. I think he shot somewhere in the neighborhood of 33% and has as many turnovers as he had assists. He simply didn't rise to the occasion and in fact, seemed overwhelmed by it. He just didn't seem like he knew he was the best guy on the court.

Will he get there? Probably, but it seems like that's something that a lot of guys have or they don't. Jordan had it from day 1 in the NBA. He had it when he was taking championship winning shots at North Carolina as a Junior. Kobe had it even before he had the skills to back it up (remember his airball against the Jazz in his second season?) With that in mind, I don't think you can say for certain that LeBron will.

Until LeBron shows me that he not only won't recoil from critical moments, but that he relishes them, I'll take Kobe.

Or until Kobe loses his legs entirely, which is probably only another year or so away.

It all remains true. And as that thread continues I go through more of the things that everyone's now seeing in LeBron.

None of this is new and I'm tired of hearing "oh, you're just a hater..." Horseshit - I was saying all of this when he was the plucky underdog in Cleveland.

There are legitimate issues with LeBron James as a leader and even as an outright ballplayer.

And for the record, I believe we've reached the point that Kobe has lost his legs. At this point there really isn't much of a question who the better ballplayer is. But Bryant is still a far better leader and competitor and for that I will always respect him over LeBron.

Without a doubt their best game if the series. Really the first game I felt dallas won from start to finish instead of stealing late. Kudos to them, hope they lose the next two.

Yep. I support all the LeBron hate but it does detract from the fact Dallas put on their best offensive performance of this series. They also came up with defensive stops every time they needed to against what is considered the most potent offensive line up in the league.

NFW they shoot like that from 3 again but they did what they had to do and took 2 out of 3 at home.

Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki impressed just about everyone with his Game 4 performance, scoring the game-deciding basket and 21 points and 11 rebounds to even the series, 2-2.

Among those apparently left unimpressed? Miami Heat stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

In a video shot by CBS Dallas, Wade and James are shown heading for the team bus after shootaround, laughing and covering their mouths with their shirts, as if to protect themselves from being sick.

Wade turns to James and says, "Did y'all hear me cough? Do you think I'm sick?"

Dallas 60, Miami 26

That's the score of the 24-minute composite representing the last six minutes...of the last four games in the NBA Finals. The equivalent of "one half" of a basketball game, but spread out over THE MOST IMPORTANT MINUTES of four different encounters.

LAST SIX MINUTES
Game Two: Dallas 20, Miami 5
Game Three: Dallas 12, Miami 7
Game Four: Dallas 11, Miami 5
Game Five: Dallas 17, Miami 9

Total: Dallas 60, Miami 26

If one of these teams had won an actual half by a score like that, the world would stand in awe. The leader would be celebrated for its dominance. The loser, humiliated (at least temporarily).

Have we ever even seen anything like that in the NBA playoffs in just a normal half? There have surely been blowouts. We've even seen trailing teams take the night off to save themselves for the next game. A 60-26 half? Sixty against what's considered by most accounts to be a great defense? Twenty-six, from what's supposed to be one of the most talented threesomes of scorers every assembled?

But, this isn't just a half. This is a composite of the most important minutes. From four games played in a row. Involving the same teams. The same sets of stars and role players. The same coaches.

It boggles the mind!

Miami did win the last six minutes of the series opener 17-15 in their 92-84 victory. So, it hasn't been a sweep of the clutch minutes for Dallas. But, Miami's win was only by two points. Dallas had wins of 15, 5, 6, and 8. The 30-minute composite score for the full series is Dallas 75, Miami 43. Still mind boggling.

Yup.

See, LeBron doesn’t have “Alpha Male” tattooed on his torso. He has “Chosen 1” across his back and “Gifted Child” on his chest, his way of telling himself he was, and is, a special boy.

He constantly needs to remind himself of his stature, to the point of turning off teammates and would-be teammates.

For example, a player recently told me LeBron had contacted him about possibly joining forces in the offseason, though he was cryptic about where he actually might play. The text began: “Yo, this is King James.”

“I was like, ‘Give me a break. You’re going to call yourself that?’ ”the player said, on condition that his name not be used.

“Do you think Michael Jordan texts people by starting with, ‘Yo, this is His Airness.’ Come on, get over yourself.”

Why do you think LeBron’s favorite teams are the Yankees and the Cowboys — why did he pull for Jordan and the Bulls as a youth and not the hard-luck Cavaliers 45 minutes from his apartment complex as a child?

Because, the thought here is, he wanted one sure thing to hold onto; he wanted to be aligned with perennial winners. He needed something to latch onto that he couldn’t get at home: Trust. Safety. Security.

The argument's been done already, he's welcome to go back to the Kobe v. LeBron thread from last year if he'd like.

http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=227877&highlight=LeBron

But I'll touch on it briefly: Kobe has had off games, certainly - but he's never run away from the moment. Many MANY times now, James has simply run scared from the pressure. Fleeing to Miami was just a symptom of the same disease.

Kobe never 'bitched out'; but he's had poor games. If you can't see the difference, I can't help you there. LeBron has flat caved in here.

And the other distinction is that Kobe has never been as physically talented as LeBron, especially now that he's aged. Kobe can be guarded. Kobe can be shut down. If you beat Kobe to his spots, he can't just run over you. He can try to alter his shot, but that requires his touch be on - sometimes it isn't. And now that his knees are giving out, he can't beat you into the lane much either. Kobe's getting by on smarts, guile and toughness.

LeBron still has the physical ability to do absolutely anything he would want on a basketball court. Yet all to often he shies away from it. He runs from the heat of the moment or lets it consume him.

Again - my beef with LeBron is, and always has been, how much better he should be. His lack of a solid mid-range game (which has been exposed when Dallas goes into a zone). His lack of any semblance of a post game (which has been exposed when Carlisle has put Kidd on him; if he had a post game the Mavs could never even consider that). All of these flaws in his game are costing his team and they're all flaws that simply shouldn't be there 8 years into his career.

And he doesn't seem to give a shit. He still sees anyone that points them out as 'haters'. He's still the least self-aware athlete I've ever seen (the 'sick' thing and his stupid 'stats' shirt speak to that).

lol, all those people on lebrons nuts last year and now they talk shit about him.

LeBron teeters on ultimate Finals failure

By Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo! Sports

DALLAS – Everything promises to be sheer torture now, the worst basketball nightmare of LeBron James(notes) unfolding one mocking, ridiculing jeer stacked upon another until the world comes crashing down Sunday night. Biggest game of my life, James proclaimed, and the final minutes of Game 5, the final score, still belonged to someone else. Beyond failure, this felt so much like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Biggest game of his life, James proclaimed, and his good was unacceptable again. Greatness is demanded for a global icon. Greatness is the burden. Back to the brink for LeBron James, back to the dizzying, dumbfounding edge of his chaotic, careening planet.

But now they head back to Miami and they're gonna lose and/or get screwed by the officials. It'll happen. I hope Dallas wins, but it seems like this is too perfectly setup for Wade and Lebron to pull off some comeback heroics.

Awful call. Chandler was in the restricted area.

This is pretty cool.

http://nbaplaybook.com/2011/06/10/why-the-charge-on-lebron-james-was-the-right-call/

http://nbaplaybook.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Correct4Real.jpg

Now, this is where the rulebook comes into play. You know those hash marks along the baseline that look a bit out of place (It’s hard to spot on this particular court, but it is where I drew the yellow line)? That is actually a very important line of reference for the refs called the Lower Defensive Box (here is it explained by NBA.com):

The restricted area (RA) is the area within the arched line on the court located below the rim. Its purpose is to stop secondary defenders from taking a position under the basket in an attempt to draw the offensive foul when a player is driving to the basket. If an offensive player drives past his primary defender on the way to the basket and a secondary defender comes over, he must establish a legal position outside the RA to draw an offensive foul. If the drive starts inside the Lower Defensive Box (LDB – this is the area from the bottom tip of the free throw circle to the endline between the two 3’ posted-up marks), the secondary defender is legally allowed to be positioned inside the LDB.

According to the rulebook, if a player starts his drive (or makes the catch) inside the lower defensive box (so inside the yellow line), the restricted area is negated and a player can take a charge inside of it. As you can obviously see, James doesn’t establish possession until he is inside of this line. So at this point, Tyson Chandler doesn’t need to get his feet outside of the restricted area, he simply needs to be set.

If the drive starts from the lower box, you can have a charge from the restricted area.

OK, I have changed my mind on LeBron.

After hearing all of the bullshit he has done over his career, from the "Chosen One" tattoo, to talking down to his fellow NBA players, I have come to a new conclusion:


He is a douche that believes in his own hype, but since he has been coddled his whole life he will NEVER be The Man due to having no trials to fight through, no real-life battles to endure. That is how champions are made.

Every single criticism has been brought on by himself, and if he fails this time he can't blame a shitty supporting cast, he can only blame himself.

The Chargers didn't make the playoffs. I would never root for another AFC West team.

As a Mavs fan I would never root for the Spurs but I might for the Rockets.


- CFoD -

I'm aware, that's why I said "if the Chiefs got knocked out". If you remember there was a point in time late last season when either the Chiefs, Chargers, or Raiders could have made it. And I do understand that they are our hated rivals in the AFC West but like I said, although the Magic and Heat are in the same division, they don't have a heated rivalry. I would have expected to see at least a small showing of Heat "fans" if only for the fact that we're in Florida and there have to be at least a few Miami fans in this area. I didn't see that though, it appeared to be about 95% Mavs "fans" in the building. I think that has more to do with Lebron and the whole teaming up deal than anything though. Had this been Wade's team from a few years back sans Lebron, I think the Heat would have had a larger showing in that particular bar.......

Do ya feel me?

You apparently don't know Philadelphia very well.

I don't.

Some bad will come out of the Mavericks winning an NBA title.

Bad like: Miami Herald columnist Dan Le Batard wearing a Speedo.

Le Batard recently challenged Hall of Famer Charles Barkley to the disturbing bet.

During Le Batard's radio show before Thursday's Game 5, the two agreed that if the Mavericks lose the Finals, Barkley will wear a Speedo on South Beach while being interviewed on the radio show. If the Heat loses, Le Batard will wear the Speedo.

I can't believe it.. Dirk Nowitzki is a RACE TRAITOR/MIXER!

Such a waste to see this great white basketball superstar turn against his own race. I can't believe this whole time I was cheering this idiot on only to find out he is enganged with a n***ess. I can't believe this. Just when I was getting back into the NBA cheering on Dirk to kick some n**** asses. Well not anymore. This was the final nail in the coffin for me. bye bye nba and Dirk the jerk.

Nowitzki. Nowitzki. Nowitzki.

Am I out of line in thinking that his last name sounds Jewish?

Nowitzki is a Germanized version of the Polish surname Nowicki.


The article states that his girlfriend might be pregnant. What a way to throw your genetic heritage to the dogs. What in God's name went through his mind..


Dirk Nowitzki is one White man I would've never expected to be a race traitor.

I always cheered him on as he was one of the only few White players in the NBA.

Lebron is getting way too much heat but again he created this monster and the arrogant prick deserves it.

Really, the Heat have had a great season and should be playing with house money at this point. Their big fucking mouths and the media feeding it makes anything but multiple Championships a massive failure.

It will be interesting to see how they respond.

Deshawn Stevenson takes my trolling to real life.

If you thought the Dallas Mavericks were going to let sleeping dogs lie, think again.

DeShawn Stevenson made headlines earlier in the week when he said LeBron James 'checked out' in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, but he's not stopping there.

Stevenson wrote on his Facebook wall early Saturday morning: “I told em Lebron is Overrated but did they listen? swag.”

Referring to James' inability to come through in the clutch for his team and the 'swag' reference is the mentality that Stevenson and the Mavs are not intimidated by James whatsoever.

This is a smart move by Stevenson. He knows that Game 6 is the biggest game of James' career and he hasn't fared well in pressurized situations of late. Also, if past history repeats itself, the Mavs are on their way to their first NBA championship.

When forced to generate offense with a halfcourt set, Miami averages 0.93 points per play in the first three quarters of the Finals, but that number falls to 0.79 in the 4th quarter. Among the "Big 3", LeBron James is 3-15 FG in halfcourt sets, Chris Bosh is 5-16 and Dwyane Wade is 9-20.

Just rewatched the the first quarter and there's something awfully weird about Wade's injury. He bangs into cardinal and then plays 5 or 6 plays without any limp whatsoever, no grimacing, takes shots.

Then suddenly there's a time out and OH MY GOD PAIN AND I COLLAPSE.

Man...Dwayne Wade...you are a huge piece of human trash.

"First of all, it wasn't fake-coughing," Wade said. "I actually did cough. And with the cameras being right there, we made a joke out of it because we knew you guys were going to blow it up. You did exactly what we knew.

"We never said Dirk's name. I think he's not the only one in the world who can get sick or have a cough. We just had fun with the cameras being right in our face about the blow up of the incident, and it held to be true. You blew it up."

In other news...Stevenson is way too tatted up to be on the internet.

MIAMI – DeShawn Stevenson does not have a Facebook page.

That’s newsworthy because somebody who claims to be Stevenson posted on Facebook: “I told em Lebron is Overrated but did they listen? swag.”

Coach Rick Carlisle caught wind of that and confronted Stevenson, telling him to stop talking trash about LeBron James. Stevenson, whose history of taking verbal jabs at King James goes back several years, was confused and told his coach that the latest comment didn’t come from him.

“There’s like 37 people that are acting like me on Facebook,” Stevenson said. “I mean, if you look at me and look at all these tattoos, do you think I’d be sitting on the Internet and typing? C’mon, man. Sometimes you’ve got to look at a person. I would not be in my house on a computer typing nothing about anybody.”

Funny, though. Wanda and LeBrenda are making fun of a player who's killing them on the court.

LeBron is not the "King," Dirk is the best player on the court.

If you can't drive to the basket against a 38 year old player, Jason Kidd, what does that say about the "Chosen One?"


Here is what Wade said:

“First of all, it wasn’t fake coughing. I actually did cough,’’ Wade said. “And with the cameras being right there we made a joke out of it because we knew you guys were going to blow it up.

“You did exactly what we knew. We never said Dirk’s name.’’

Wade continued, “I think he’s not the only one in the world who can get sick or have a cough. We just had fun with the cameras being right in our face about the blowup of the incident, and it held to be true.

“You blew it up.’’

(Sidekick*) James was in no mood to tell his side of the story, or to back Wade’s version.
