    I like Lebron's politics.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I don't even understand the Lebron hate, he is a great player, fantastic role model and his work in the community and for the youth of Cleveland is fantastic. I wish we had more professional athletes that handled themselves like Lebron.

    I also give him props for taking blame for the loss, even though it clearly wasn't his fault, he dodged every question about JR/George Hill.

Back when I use to judge boxing matches I remember the one thing you never want to see is an equal match, because 100% of the time whatever call you make the otherside accuses you of being "biased" or "blind" and I believe I've been called an effing AH a few times too. When everything else is even, both sides always think they win. Now when you break things down play by play, there are a bunch of missed calls in every single game. How often does an umpire make a bad strike or ball call? 99% of the time, if you stepped back and took an ubiased look at it you'd end up seeing that they're making bad calls for both sides.

    I'm pretty sick of Golden State/Cleveland myself.....but it will be nice to see Lebron lose for a 3rd time in a row.
    Did you actually watch the game though? It was horrible, even the announcers and other NBA players and athletes were discussing how bad it was. Plus, you know, the NBA has had officials bet on and rig games in the past...

    I would like to have said this.

    IMO - Professional athletes should never be subjected to the kinds of questions he was asked in one of the news conferences that I listened to. People in news media constantly over step the bounds of common decency in a warped effort to create news where more often than not there is no news. I am a lifelong Boston Celtic fan so i bet you can guess where my heart lies when the question of who is the greatest come up. Sorry Larry - you come in second for me. I have to say though I have not seen any player in the last 56 years who is able to affect a game as much as this man. The only one who even comes close is Wilt. I say this knowing quite well that this is apt to stir the feelings of the MJ fans. Oh well.

    we definitely need more role models like LeBron. he spent millions to send kids to college, and he actually keeps in touch with the kids he helps, making sure they're actually going to class, and etc. he married his hs girlfriend, and has been faithful his whole life. i respect the shit out of LeBron, and his basketball skills speak for themselves. its had to hate a guy like him, when other great players, like Jordan, had the gambling issues, cheated on his wife, was linked to getting his dad killed,etc, and kobe was a massive douche, raped someone, and etc.

    LeBron turned into a phony, race-baiting shitbrick when he rejoined Cleveland. I was a staunch defender of his during the Miami era (as previous pages of this thread will show) but over the last four years he has become insufferable.

    Whoa what? Didn't the guys see him napping in a really nice car on the side of the road and only find out he was Jordan's dad after they had already killed him?

    EDIT: I just googled this for a few minutes and I can't find a single non-conspiracy theory, non-sketchy looking site proposing the theory that Jordan had any link to his father's murder. I did find articles on a bunch of E-newspapers with questionable journalistic integrity and a few conspiracy videos on YouTube.

    - From the 2004 ALCS Game 4 Gamethread. A reminder that no game is over until the final out is recorded, and things will always get better. Misspellings unchanged as a reminder that Yankees fans are just terrible.
