Lebron breaking his own hand makes me think less of him. His fault. When Lebron faces adversity he punches a wall and breaks his own hand making it harder for his team to win. So (bleep) dumb.

Edit: If he is making excuses and his hand is fine, he looks like a crybaby.


Some are suggesting he really hurt it by punching JR Smith after Game 1 and are using this whiteboard as a cover up.

Its far more understandable to punch JR Smith than a whiteboard

^If that’s true, JR Smith deserves credit for taking one for the team.

Likewise.

Not that we need the offseason for Free Agent and Draft Threads!

Hmmm Lebron was putting up great numbers all series and dunking pretty hard with his "broken" hand.

Significant which means this Dubs title is asterisked.


he always has a flipping excuse -_- And ESPN of course will go right ahead and use this to try to act like he'd have won if not for it.

Kobe had a greater injury to his hand and never once complained about it when the team didn't win, he just played harder.

Keep with the flipping excuses LeBron. You lost. You got swept. ESPN will protect the crap out of you and your 'hand' now.

Steph didn't come out and go "I was injured and Draymond was suspended " When you beat them in 7. He took the loss like a champ.

You should learn to do the same.

if we use the "LeBron standard" of taking victories away.

Curry was injured and Draymond was suspended, otherwise given how Curry had played that season, the Cavs would have lost in 5. Like they did the next season.

But people never do that when LeBron loses, never when he wins, which ain't often.

Probably would have had the NBA suspended Draymond like they should have, or if Bogut got injured.

Both of those things had to happen for LeBron to avoid another 4-1 finals loss.

There has been Klay and Kawhi mentions for '19, but how come no one has mentioned Kyrie? What if the Lakers only land PG13? I'd much rather have Kyrie than Lebron.

Well, he took two games from them without Kyrie and Love in 2015. It's fair. The only thing unfair is this whole once in a lifetime financial flexibility situation the Warriors stumbled to, which allowed them to sign KD.

That and Curry was already injured, and if we considered the kind of supernova season Curry was having.... yeah.

So satisfying watching this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg3ffF8v0Yc

For the first time in a rarity I agree with Chuck And them all.

We watched LeBron fold, and quit. Just like he did vs the Celtics when he bolted to Miami, just like he did against the Spurs when he bolted back to Cleveland, just like he did now when he's bolting away from Cleveland again to run off to Philly and look for another easy road.

Curry was healthy enough to beat Durant. Draymond played game 7 at home and played great.

Fact is Lebron beat them. And had their backs against the wall without Kyrie and Love the year before; if he had those guys maybe Lebron goes 2-0 against them.

Yeah after they got Durant. Lebron beat them 3 in a row, games 5 and 7 were in California, and they had to go get Durant because Lebron just owned them in the finals. Having a 73 win team wasn’t good enough for them.

Lets put Durant on the Cavs instead after 2016 and see how Golden State does.

Barkley made the same exact argument against Kobe in 2006. He accused Kobe of being passive and quitting on his team in game 7. I thought Barkley was full of (bleep). Of course if Kobe started shooting a lot, he would be accused of being selfish.

Same! I love Kyrie. He, Giannis, and Kawhi are my favorite non-Lakers.

Stop preaching his two wins in 2015. Kerr adjusted and then LeBron lost three straight. There's no accomplishment there. Countless of teams have pushed better teams to 6 games. There's no accomplishment in that.

Love how you make excuses for LeBron on all of his losses yet don't make them for GS in 2016.

LeBroners are struggling with reality. You have been rooting for the greatest loser of all time. Cheers.
