It's astonishing that guys that the refs wouldn't think twice about respecting EVER are all of a sudden given carte blanche on both ends of the court once they become a teammate of Lebron.

TP! I've been saying this for years. While LeBron is absolutely disgustingly coddled by the refs and has been from day one of his NBA career, my biggest issue has always been that his entire team gets that treatment no matter what. There are plenty of players in the league that benefit from star treatment individually, but no one else whose entire team gets that treatment.

The Cavs should be worried about how much theyíve been relying upon JR Smith lately. He canít sustain his production.

I agree. The overreaction to the cavs getting some role players was a pretty unique experience on this board. The Cavs 3rd best player is probably George hill. The 4th best is either hood or clarkson? That's not Klay Thompson or draymond green. They still have serious issues

Watch, if they lose tonight (which looks likely now), the media will have all the excuses lined up for Bron Bron.

But when they win, it's the "awakening of Lebron" and the "Cavaliers are unstoppable" and "the Cavaliers have closed the gap on Golden State"  ::)

UPDATE: Probably spoke too soon. Wizards might just choke this away...

Exactly. True leaders deflect praise and accept blame. LeBron has always been the exact opposite of that. When things are going well, he gets - and gladly accepts - all the credit. But when things aren't going well, he points fingers more than any star athlete - in any sport - that I've ever seen.

Wizards win!

And LOL, Lebron gets to the line and goes 0-2. Practically tried running into guys blatantly to draw a foul, and didn't work!  :laugh:

Now lets see all the excuses the media makes up for the Cavaliers after deeming them "invincible" about a week ago  :P
This will follow the same pattern as past Cavs deals: The team is energized for the first couple of games and the media practically anoints them as champs.  Then they get complacent and lose to a middle-of-the-pack team, then the finger-pointing begins.

Larry Nance, Jr. will wear his father's retired jersey number after all.  Sometime next week he will start wearing #22.  Nance, Sr.'s jersey will remain hanging in the rafters.  Nance, Jr. joked that the short shots and high white socks would also be worn.

It cracks me up that the Cavs were the lead story on ESPN mobile most of the day / evening. Then they lose, and the loss isnít mentioned in any of the headlines, and the Warriors and Thunder wins are highlighted.

Does Lebron own stock in ESPN?

I think the complaining is annoying.

I also think Lebron's size/athleticism combo is borderline indefensible. He gets fouled a lot.

Yeah, I think Lebron gets fouled without calls more than any player since Shaq. But, the complaining is ceaseless.

Don't laugh....LeBron is becoming such a power broker in the league and he's really made some smart business decisions, it wouldn't shock me at all if he's buying up Disney shares.  He'd have even more clout if he were a major shareholder in one of the NBA's broadcast partners.

The guy should learn ďno commentĒ. I get that the chip on his shoulder makes IT the player that he is, but  this media talk makes him a distraction, and thus costs him money.
