If we want to win any of our next 5 games, then we need to rest Lebron next game against Utah. Lebron would never want to load manage so it's up to Vogel to make that decision.

It's like last season. Bron ball in regular season, even though he couldn't outproduce AD in anything, then it was team ball in the payoffs (AD & Rondo carryjob) .... Then Bron ball again vs Jimmy and The Beach Boys for that individual award.

LeBron wasn't tired when we went up 17. Or was he tired because we lost the game?

Obviously tired after the overtime and logging in 42+ minutes. That was a tough lost too which make it much more exhausting.

Sick of all these Lebron haters in my circle texting me like crazy whenever he loses a meaningless POS regular season game.
Nitpicking after every mistake or losing streak.

Regular season BS lol
They stay quiet 90% of the time though!

Can’t wait till Lebron and the Lakers shut them up again

Horrible take. Look I love Kobe just like you only difference is I don’t get triggered when someone calls Lebron a GOAT.

They both deserve that title if you ask me.
What Lebron did all last season long was truly amazing.

Another pathetic take from a "fan" who's only around when Lebron struggles. Go back into hiding.

Bron isn't the one underperforming during this slide. You can argue that we want him to go 'extra' to squeeze out some wins but the role players been the ones stinking it up

With Dennis out, we have no other shot creators outside of THT (who Vogel won't play). And we don't have an offensive system to actually get role players shots because we always play Lebron and AD ISO ball.

Gonna be a grind these next few games.

Need more balance around here. And honesty. Kobe got critisized for less.

Dude's a snoozefest. He's good but quite overrated and spoiled.

Just my opinion. That i want to share sometimes.

I hear you. But giving my honest opinion once every 5 months or so shouldn't be that big of a deal. I watch him often too.

You see only what you want to see. He took the lion's share of the criticism in the game thread.
I don't look forward to your opportunistic drivel during these upcoming losses. I'm sure it will be plentiful.

This loss isn’t all on Lebron. Coach Vogel sucked too. Why Matthews plays so many minutes baffles me.

Lebron seem to run out of gas to me after they rolled up to their 17 point lead. Harrell was doing great, so why was his sitting down the stretch?

Carelessness and lack of defense killed us, not just Lebron.

And yes, he is one of the goat. Can’t argue that unless you are a hater, which sadly, there are some of those folks lerking here. The same haters that listen to Skip.

Vogel been ok, the 3 pt shots not falling, who should take Wes' minutes? I mean KCP been stinking it up too, THT not really knocking down those 3s, Kuz been playing decent amt of minutes and AC backs up Bron's PG duties, we can give Dudley and McKinney some burn I guess but I'd rather get Wes the minutes to get him more comfortable for the playoff run

Need more balance in the lebron james thread imo. Don't worry won't post much, he has lost and played worse than this and i kept my mouth shut. Again, sometimes i feel like giving my opinion, and i'm still being pretty reasonable too.

He is the one player who is showing up every game. Our entire offense collapses into a heap of skeletons when he sits (we are +6 in the recent games without AD/Dennis with LBJ on the floor, -23 when he sits). You want to criticize someone? He isn't even close to #1 on my list right now.

I don't think you're being very objective about this. And others are equally pointing out that you only show up when things are tough on the team. Didn't see this vitriol when the team was plowing through the playoffs. He won that Finals MVP again, didn't he? I could care less about the Kobe v. LBJ debate as Kobe himself said to knock it off. Love both of these guys.

We're going to lose several games from here to the AS break. I know you'll enjoy it.

My concern is he is way overextending himself. He can't help himself (and is undoubtedly chasing an MVP, which is not wise given his mileage/age). But if he doesn't play, and with AD/Dennis out, our offense is literally nothing.

Watching guys like AC/Kuz/KCP/Wes try to create on their own...ouch. Teams have also figured out THT and he's been less effective recently too.
