    Like I said, I don't know if he's mentally weak or not but I knew that elbow stuff was full of crap. Did anyone see how Lebron demanded a shooting foul in the 4th quarter and the refs gave it to him?? :eek:

    Considering I have seen Kobe quit twice, including one playoff game, and also stop attacking when Boston mopped them by 39, I'm going to say this just isn't true.

    You're the one who said that you could easily find 10X as many videos of him losing games for his team as I could of him winning games. Now you're backing away from that? That's good, it saves me the trouble of posting the video from tonight's first quarter. This "mentally weak loser" dominated the Celtics from the opening tip.

    They're just going to go into hiding for a while until Lebron has another subpar (for him) game. Then they'll come back out with the "I told you he's mentally weak!" crap.

    i told you to post the vids of lebron quitting.

    i will grant you that last year was disappointing for the cavs because lebron has taken a worse team deeper into the post season. however, this year i don't see how lebron is stopped. this is by far the best team he has had and he is shooting the ball great in spite of the elbow.

    ....and seriously how the hell did this team actually make it to the finals? lebron.

    they were a good defensive team tho.

    whenever you can hold teams under 93 ppg and you have a great scorer like lebron you're always in position to win games.

    like the 2001 sixers with iverson.

    Except that they had waaaay better players and a hall of fame coach, not a moron at the helm.

    This thread should be about how Mike Brown is mentally weak

    lebron is much better than iverson.

    mike brown is still a good defensive coach and had the cavs rotating and playing good help defense and contesting shots very well.

    he's not great but he still had the cavs playing good defense. his offense sucks but that got overlooked because he had a great scorer like lebron.

    The elbow thing is his attempt at being like MJ playing with the flu, when players perform through things like this they reach superhuman stats, it seperates them from others. From a brand perspective its great, and this guy is all about Lebron "King" James. I've become the biggest Lebron hater out there, this guy is no class, its all about "look at me me me". BUT, I do understand he probably IS hurt, but he's acting like a diva with it, that's the part I can't stand....these folks could learn a thing or two from ice hockey players.

    oh jesus, gimme a break. one game does not a series make. but i like how you genius's back the guy that all media in the world says is the messiah. way to think outside the box. you guys are really smart.

    i never said lebron was not a great basketball player. i said, and still say, he is mentally weak. and as for the response that "haters" will wait till he has a bad game, that is kinda the point of pointing out someones weakness', they show themselves when someone is not at their best. when they get whooped in the eastern finals and are to immature to wish good luck to the victors, when they prance around like they at the gay pride festival when they beat scrubs by 30 points. when they believe all their hype and crack when the possibility that they are human shows up.

    but keep crowing kids, we will see.
    if he wins it all, then i guess i was wrong, but one game is not proof that i am wrong.

    I can say the exact same thing back. Way to think you're so cool for being so contrarian and not following the crowd or whatever.
    Whatever. I sincerely don't understand Lebron haters. He's simply too amazing every flipping game, and if you're going to whine just because he didn't shake hands with the enemy (which was completely old school), then whatever. The guy's amazing and works his ass off. That's what matters.

    In the Jordan era, Boston became washed up. Detroit became washed up. The Lakers became washed up. Does that matter now with Jordan's legacy?

    You seemed to think it did after the Cavs lost game 2. That was your proof that Lebron was mentally weak.
