Tonight’s game against Washington, again shows LB can’t consistently make a big shot to win the game. Had a phantom foul called with seconds left in the game. Made the basket to tie it up. Went to the free throw line, and MISSED. This is the difference between being a GOAT, and a superstar.

And a side note. LB behind the 3 point line, with seconds left in OT, throws up a LeBrick. The 10-17 Wizards win the game. Let’s see who LB throws under the bus in the post game conference. And listen to him ask for help again.

I wish someone would count all the transition points made in important games where LJ sat there complaining.
It's not like you have any chance overturning the call and more importantly you have to practice what you preach to your teammates!!
That ish drove me crazy..

Butler was pretty much all Miami had. And Butler was playing with a injured ankle. Even with that, it took LA 6 games to win.

Really, your not going to be at the all star game mentality? Hey, Iím not surprised, you always relied on someone else to fill that role.

So expect ď Load Management ď
I have the same argument about him saying he "beat" the Warriors when he was with Cleveland. The Warriors were injury heavy and Greene was booted for 2 games. So with basically with all the starters on ice, it still took them 7 games to win and not by much. IDK...I personally think he is over rated plain & simple

Agree. If they lose to Utah, Iím waiting for him to throw teammates, and coach under the bus.
LB is a great player, Just not cut from the same cloth as MJ, Kobe, Magic, Bird, Isiah, Iverson, I couldnít go on, and on.

OMG, I’m not sure I heard right. Utah made 50 three pointers, in two games. A NBA record.

LA, heard of defense? UTAH shot 3s with hardly any defense on them.

Lebron is overrated. Look at how bad the Lakers are without AD.

The bulls look like a better team right now.

I was thinking the other day of how part of MJ's legacy is how he popularized the sport globally and has gone into the history books as a mythologic figure. He was the most popular human on the face of the Earth. Meanwhile during Lebron's tenure NBA ratings have sank to all time lows. He's a very divisive player both on and off the court. In a basketball context alone I strongly believe he has negatively impacted the game.

Growing up the NBA was always my favourite league. I reminisce over the days watching so many star players in different organizations. The Spurs, Suns, Mavs, Lakers, and Kings made for some amazing playoff series out West. The regular season was valued and fun to watch. I'm partly biased because my Pistons were actually a solid team then. Say what you will about David Stern but he ran a tight ship. Besides the bs blocked Chris Paul trade and allowing the Sonics to move I don't have much beef with him.

The past few years I've mostly become just a casual fan who follows in the playoffs. I don't really care for a lot of the younger players. The politics and players seemingly running the league is what broke the camel's back for me. I don't follow basketball at all anymore.

Totally agree. Personally, I feel the game is boring to watch. Isolation ball, no defense, and 3 points shots practically on every possession. And this coming from a miserable Knicks fan. Thank god Yankee baseball isnít far away.

All star game, Team Lebron. The all star game is, and has been a joke to watch. Boy do miss the days of MJ, Magic, Bird, Isaiah, Dr.J, Kobe, Shaw,and there’s so many to name. The all star game was competitive. Teams took pride in the game. Played hard nose defense.

The only player I enjoy watching is Curry. He makes shots from a different zip code. Best shooter I ever saw. Otherwise, I can’t watch. After 10 minutes, I change the channel.

Lebtich missed multiple LAYUPS!!! Curry was a beast as usual and the ally-oop was THE highlight from a boring ass game. This format is 100% trash

Haha, this thread is comical. How could people be so full of hate? Who hurt you? So much energy into hatred of someone they've never met is perplexing.

Definitely a lot of politics.....but these guys are making $40 mil a year now on the court so I don't know that NBA viewership is at an all-time low (maybe on TV but a lot of people don't watch it on TV, they watch it on mobile devices, etc.).

I think the whole dynamics of the super team started to hurt the NBA (which definitely was attributed to LeBron). Talent-wise, the league now is way way way better than at any other point by a lot. However, that's the downfall..you have a couple players team up and that is where the super team starts.
