LeBron played so horribly? Are the expectations really so high that he goes out and averages 27, 9, and 7 and it's considered he played horribly? In game 6 LeBron had 27, 19, and 10! Anybody else could have 27, 19, and 10 and everybody would be saying what a great game he had, but LeBron does it, and nobody cares. He had two games in the series where he had 35 or more points. Game 5 the Celtics just took him out of the game mentally, as I said before they bullied him into quitting. He didn't make a conscious decision to not give the effort necessary to win. He wasn't mentally as strong as he needed to be back then.
did you even watch that series against boston, or are you just looking back at some stats on your computer? that was the least aggressive lebron james ive ever watched...even less aggressive than against dallas in the finals 2 seasons ago. lebron sat outside and shot jumpers the vast majority of the series. in their 4 losses...he shot a combined 25/68...37%. and that includes the game he completely quit...game 5...IN CLEVELAND...where he was 3/14 from the field. clevelands other 4 starters...antawn jamison, shaquille oneal, mo williams and anthony parker all had as many or more baskets than lebron did in that game...how does that even happen?!?! it happened because the series was tied at 2 and the cavs were playing at home and lebron said to himself..."crap, if we win this one we might win the series...and ive already got that plane ticket to miami...i better completely take this game off to make sure i dont miss that shindig at wade's crib next week"...and as for the players the cavs brought in during the lebron era...lebron himself signed off on a majority of those transactions...i dont blame people for not knowing that...but unless you live here...you dont realize...the cavs didnt do much of anything without lebrons blessing. and i fault the cavs for that...the organization needs to make the business decisions and leave the the players to handling the business on the court...but they didnt want to **** off their superstar so they basically let him run the team
