Sick of LBJ
LeBron James is gonna have an 1 hour special on ESPN this Thursday to announce his whereabout in the next x years under a $100+ contract that we will sign with “?” That “?” can be Cleveland or Miami or Chicago which are the front runners of the Lebron sweepstake this offseason in NBA.
To be honest, I don’t really give a shit where he is gonna sign. As a fan of basketball, don’t get me wrong that I don’t like stars. I like to watch star players playing. What I don’t like are those hyper-inflated stars who are made into something bigger than they are, not who they may become. I’ve no doubt that LBJ has shown all the potentials of how great he can and will be, but he is NOT there yet. My feeling is that he is still more interest in chasing individual glory than Championship. 2 times regular season MVP, that’s nice but so what? The bottomline in NBA for fans and most players are rings!
LBJ is great in regular season and fun to watch, but I don’t see a shift of his mentality during the playoff. The prime example is Game 5 against Boston. He just had no fire in his eyes, no killer instinct! That’s what separates him from Kobe or Michael. Unless he is seriously about chasing ring, I don’t think it matters where he will be next season.
