Where are the LeBron haters now? Winners finish, nuff said.

What has LeBron won? A playoff game?

Can't deny it wasn't an impressive outing though.

He indeed had a great game. Can't argue that. Dude couldn't miss.

Can't wait for Game 7.

That was the best game of LeBron's career, and he must do it again. I dont know why he has had so many problems in these games but he needs to be greedy and just demand the ball and take it over. He did that tonight and if he does it in Game 7 the Heat will win setting up a fantastic final with OKC.

Seriously? It was one game. It was an all-time game, but it was one game.

I don't hate Lebron, I'd just rather have Durant as the face of my franchise.

Wow. That was impressive. I am not a hater (in fact, I kinda want the Heat to win it all out of spite). I want to see him do well because I almost feel bad for him about all the hate and the microscope (even if he brought it on himself).

I don't know, though, that he "finished". It was a blowout. I still think he'll tighten up in the 4th if it's close. And that matters. Because they are not going to win five of their next eight games via blowout. They're going to need good play late. Without a doubt, he came to play tonight...but let's see if he can when it's on the line in game 7 (and I hope he does, but I have my doubts).

Let me preface this by stating that I'm not a "Lebron hater." He's one of my favorite players. I'd much rather see him live up to his billing or whatever you want to call it. I get nothing out of seeing him bashed by any and everyone with an opinion. However, one game does not make up for all of his shortcomings in previous playoff games where he just stood around, played hot potato, or as See Red so eloquently put it, "looked to pass it to Haslem."

Let's not forget that it's a lot easier to play great when your team is up by double digits most of the game. All Lebron did tonight was beat hell out of an old and tired Celtics team. A Celtics team that frankly, the Heat should have eliminated long before game seven. It should have ended in five but Miami's "winners" couldn't "finish."

There's no denying LBJ played a great game tonight but let's get real here. The Celtics team I saw tonight was struggling to keep the damned ball in-bounds when they were on offense. How many times did they drop passes etc. and watch helplessly as the ball rolled off the court? Lebron should have lit them up tonight. Talk to me about "winners finishing" after he has a game like tonight's against the Thunder.

Here's what I hope happens, Lebron drops 35 on the Celtics and in the process he makes a :censored:-load of crucial late "clutch" baskets.

Here's what will probably happen, Lebron scores 17, pisses himself in the 4th quarter, makes a bunch of nice passes to Udonis Haslem, and prays that D-Wade can carry the day.

What Lebron does or does not do won't matter anyway. The Celtics drained the last drop from the fountain of youth to win game five. It's going to take a colossal choke by the Heat to blow this. And if they do somehow lose this series, their problems run a lot deeper than LBJ's performance in the clutch.

I'd argue that his game against Detroit in the 2007 ECF (and the one and only time he took over a playoff game) was the best of his career. The kid was supernatural that night. And we've been waiting ever since to see him do it again. My point I suppose is that he's proven he's capable of doing it. Why he doesn't is anyone's guess.

About LeBron's finishing problem: I totally forgot it was LeBron vs all. Like its all his fault that he doesn't have a ring yet. Not that he didn't carry an entire franchise for 8 years...where are they without him exactly? His PPG on elimination games is the highest of all time. Can't blame him...

About LeBron tonight: The man is on a mission. He's absolutely locked in this year. Dominating. And whether or not he ever wins a championship I don't care. I'm glad I'm getting the chance to see it

I agree with this. That game against Detroit was something really, really special. One of the best performances I've seen, to be honest. Something I know I will never see anything like again. As to why he hasn't done it again... maybe it's because now he's supposed to? I don't know. I think if that game had gone the other way and he played sub-par down the stretch, we'd have chalked it up to his youth and said he'll get 'em next time like he had nothing to lose. Now he has everything to lose.

Yeah, he was a beast for the entirety of a double digit game. He was a beast in game five's first half. Then the game tightened up and he went eight minutes without a basket in the fourth quarter. I'd have been interested in seeing how he'd have responded had the Celtics taken advantage of an opportunity to tighten that game up in the third when they got some stops down 11, and had about three or four possessions where they got very good looks and couldn't convert.

He didn't finish a damn thing. Come back when he wins that ring. Get out of here with that. You know what we mean. He has done this before just to die when he is closest to the sun. He isn't winning a ring. Dude is a headcase. No wonder his teammate boinked his mom. :lol:

No, it's not all his fault that he doesn't have a ring yet, but it is his fault that he's a pompous douche who deserves to be hated.

Deserves to be hated? Geez Kev, really? :rolleyes:

I've never understood the attitude from fans that Lebron is such a douche when there are still guys like Kobe and Artest in the league. He changed teams. Sure he did it publicly but that would've happened no matter if he left or stayed with the hype he has behind him. The amount of unwarranted criticism this guy gets is mind blowing. Has he been perfectly "Michael Jordan" in the playoffs? No, not yet. But his numbers are still pretty off the charts. It's hard to believe there are so many out there that have such a hard time at least seeing that much.

I don't even know what to say about this post.

"it's easy to play great when you're up double digits"

do you know why they were up double digits? Because LeBron was playing :censored:ing great, and that's probably an understatement

"LeBron should have lit them up tonight"

WTF do you call 45-15-5?

"take a colossal choke"

Don't game 5 winners of 2-2 series win the series nearly 90% of the time? Weren't people just counting out the Heat and calling the Big 3 era over?

You say you're not a LeBron hater, then you do nothing but hate. It's like saying "I don't want to be offensive, but you're ugly, your breath stinks, and your moms a whore"

He was lights out tonight and i think if he plays half as good as he did tonight they'll be smooth sailing in game 7.

And i hate the "He wasn't clutch tonight" arguments. Just stop it. It was an elimination game on the road. The whole game was practically a 4th qtr.

He built the lead up himself and played great d all night.

and the KD v LBJ argument, i'd say KD's a better perimeter shooter but everything else i'd say lebron is better hands down. No one seems to take the defensive side of their game into account in which KD is not even on the same level.

You guys should read this article, it can and will put a lot of arguments and lebron misconceptions to rest. BTW lebron has the highest shooting percentage in the last minute of 1 score ballgames this year. Not clutch? hmmmmm

That was certainly ironic, considering the source.
