Jake Voskuhl misses a potential game clencher FT that could of put the Bobcats up by 4 yet its 104-101 Bobcats, Big Z rebounds, James sets up Flip Murray for 3, bam! overtime 104-104. :curse: Glad I can't watch this game (accually I wish I could). Hope they can pull it out though.

:cry: Lebron with the game winner (120-118). There goes that talk about him not hitting clutch shots at the end of games. Felton with 30 (10 in OT) points 7 rebounds 10 assist and 5 steals (46 mins), kid is definately a baller. Another great effort and yet another loss. :curse:

Ray is the man. LeHype is a fluke.
Good game guys. Felton just killed us once he realized that nobody could guard him. 17 points in the 4th and ot, thats remarkable. I was less impressed with his ability to penetrate than I was with his ability to finish. The Cavs really don't have any great perimeter defenders (especially for a quick pg) but we do have some height and he made some pretty great layups.

Good luck fellas, and Carbo, isn't it about time to get over the bitterness?

What bitterness? I'm tired of the world-wide blow job LeBron gets. Yea, he's good and all but it's retarded to think he's the best player in the NBA or even in the sentence as MJ as some LeBron groupies claim he is. He's still not clutch, 1 game winner in 222 games? No defense, no playoffs yet. I don't like having LeBronze shoved down my throat just because Stern and Nike have found their new cash cow.

Some of those are legitimate arguments. However, when you mix in the entire LeBronze nonsense you message gets muddled. Fact is, LeBron played way less than players you are obviously giving a pass on the entire bronze medal nonsense. So if you want to bash LeBron regarding that you need to go after Wade, Iverson, Duncan and quite a few other players that not only played more than LeBron but actually played worse than LeBron did in the Olympics. See my point?

I will give you that LeBron has not been in the playoffs. My contention is that he hasn't had a team that should have been in the playoffs, but I see your point. LeBrons defense is not great, but not as bad as his detractors tend to make it out to be. I think it's about average (although last year it was below average). To say that LeBron isn't clutch (whatever that means) actually does not take into consideration that he has the highest shooting percentage in the 4th quarter in the league. It also doesn't take into consideration the multiple times that he has taken over and pushed his team to win. But I guess you along with those others that criticize him are only looking at times he's taken the shot when down by 1 or 2 points that was the winning basket (since he has hit shots to tie the game several times). He does however tend to make the right choice in those situations. So when he is triple teamed he finds the open man, but he can hit the shot if he is single covered like last night.

I do understand why it is annoying to have a thread started everytime he does anything. I'm with you on that one, but understand that more than half of those threads are started in an effort to bash him rather than to praise him.

LeBron is no Jordan, I don't know anyone who argues that he is. He has a totally different game than Sir Jordan. I always argue that LeBron is the first LeBron rather than on that list of next Jordans. But, he is more than just good. Calling him good is an enormous understatement (IMO). To call him a fluke is just ridiculus and denial regarding the previous 2.75 seasons.

I have to admit, I feel the same way and always have. Yeah, his commercials are fun, and he sure puts fans in the seats--but he's done nothing (and neither has his team) to justify the hysteria surrounding him.

Tell us about the brilliance of LeBron when he's at least gotten the Cavs into the Playoffs.

Well the Cavs magic number is down to 4 (any combination of the Cavaliers wins and Chicago losses) not to mention they have a 4 game lead on the 5th position. So I think you'll at least be able to take that part off of your LeBron todo list.

You make some ridiculus comments. They don't really even seem to be based in reality. But at least I can see from where your bitterness comes.
