I have always admired Lebron James ever since he entered the NBA as a cavalier.. His talents are really superb! on his rookie year, He proved that he is NBA ready. That He is the future of the NBA. After 4 years, brought the Cavs to the Finals in 2007 against the Spurs. I saw how he led a Cavs team with a young Gibson, Shannon Brown, Varejao, veterans like Ilgauskus and Donyell Marshall and some players (haha!).. The lineup is not even a playoff team but they were in the NBA Finals that year because of Lebron, but, the Spurs are just too much for that Cavaliers team, and the cavs were swept by the spurs. There the drama starts, the quest for Lebron having a ring,started again from zero. In 2010, Lebron left Cleveland, where he is a hometown hero, where he is the franchise player, where he said that he will do anything to bring a ring to the Cavs. But he left, for Miami heat, joining Wade, and Bosh.
I don’t hate Lebron James, i respect his skills but i started to dislike him already the moment he left the cavaliers. I thought, this guy can’t lead a team to win a championship, he has to transfer and join a team. That is not a superstar quality, not a winner’s quality, not a quality of the NBA greats! (Unless, Cavaliers does not want him anymore, that is a different story) I disliked him more when people, analysts, commentators and everyone started to love him more! haha. like he is the greatest player ever! I always believed, that MJ and Kobe (more of Kobe, I am a kobe and Lakers fan) are the NBA greats! along with The Sky Hook, the Magic Johnson, The Larry Bird, The WIlt, The Shaquille O’neal etc.
Bring Tmac, or Vince Carter, or Grant Hill, or Allen Iverson, in their prime in a team in the likes of Wade, and Bosh and Ray Allen. For sure, they will have multiple championships and MVPs too, when the competition in MVP is only one, the likes of Kevin Durant. That is his comparison, not MJ or Kobe. the only difference is that those players had different career ending than of Lebron.
If Lebron stayed with the Cavaliers, he will surely win a championship, with the franchise willing to give him everything it takes to win. Better if Wade and Bosh joined him there, not him, leaving for another team.
And even if he doesn’t win a ring, he surely will be a legend, if he didn’t left, He will be like Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley and Karl Malone (tho Malone played for the Lakers).
These are the reasons why I believe Lebron and the heat doesn’t deserve a 3peat. Go win championships together with his miami heat, but they do not deserve a 3peat. I know real NBA fans will get my point here. I don’t hate or disrespect Lebron. I will always admire and respect his skills up to the last game of his career. But I will never be a fan of him.
I was a fan of him, on his Cavaliers days
