@ MELLOW_WOLF....July 13 Comment was
 
Actually, you are the one who has been blatantly and significantly "fooled" in your assessment of LBJ's paint performance throughout the playoffs as well as his overall mental fortitude. You obviously have not looked at any stats to validate your claims.

He actually shot 58-86(67.5%), in the paint, the last 7 Heat playoff games. He scored 16 or more points in the paint all 7 of these games. Certainly a significant improvement from seasons past and a huge reason they went 6-1 in those outings. Truly astounding numbers that maybe only All-NBA power forwards and centers(and maybe Jordan and Kobe) can put up that consistently. How you interpret this any other way is beyond me. If you are a basketball fan, you witnessed greatness on a level that is hard to match.

Here's a link documenting his amazing paint play and production in the last 7 games:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75dd0Tii3WY


As to the fouls he was supposedly getting called for him: If, in fact, he was being fouled so much, how do you explain the very normal FT attempts he had per game?

Game 1- 9 attempts
Game 2- 12
Game 3- 8
Game 4- 8
Game 5- 9

This was purposeful and smart strategy.


How are you the only(that I know of) person who criticized LBJ for his play and regarded the entire game as an indictment of LeBron's skills? Baffling assessment, with no objectivity or understanding of what we all were witnessing that evening. Game 6 in Boston is now generally spoken of as an all time top ten playoff performance. Your "commentary" sure comes off as prepubescent posturing. Do you still think his performance in game 6 was deserving of any criticism?

Finally, you question his mental fortitude and ability to put up with taunts. In the past, yes, but not anymore. He has as much steeliness as any current player in the game. He led his team back from deficits in his last 3 series, coming up with huge road playoff performances in Game 4 at Indy, Game 6 in Boston and Game 2 in OKC. He has handled more criticism than any other player in recent memory and crushed all doubters with his playoff run this year. You really think Miller, Barkley, Jordan, or any other "90's" cats can out garbage-talk Kevin Garnett? Please. LBJ has heard it all. He just shrugs it off.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Very Well Said...
It is so easy to place facts down to support LBJ performances
 
Solid performer
 
You so cleverly pointed out that LBJ had signature moments throughout this postseason (@ Indy, @ Boston and @OKC)
 
Yes a champion is crowned every season....but LBJS
40+ pts 15+ rebs, 9 assist 2 blocks and 2 steals @ indy
40 + pts 10+ rebs 5 assists @ boston
clutch game @ okc game 2...triple double in game 7
c'mon man.....those were signature games
 
Guys in this thread hint that LBJ is a one hit wonder,,,,,nothing in this man's career to date has hinted at him being overrated or a one trick pony (constantly among the leaders in scoring,,,,,,,#1 efficienct player in league for years.....all time USA leading scorer....will be all time leading scorer in all star history......constantly in top 12 in assists every year ..trailing top pgs in league.....constantly chasing down blocking shots....and is a triple double waiting to happen every game)

@EARL 24343

howard > ewing

lebron > barkley

durant > malone

kobe < jordan

rose > magic

bench:

bynum = robinson

melo > pippen

CP3 > stockton

Wade > Mullin

bosh/love > bird
---------------------------------------------------------------

Wake me when CP3, Melo, Howard and Rose makes an NBA Finals

Everyone on 1992 team made a NBA finals except Mullin and Laettner (NOTE Laettner should not have been on team)

Also, 1992 team had more NBA regular season MVPs

Barkley, Jordan, Magic, Bird, Malone, Robinson,

The only reason the other guys dont have some is b/c

magic, bird, and jordan won the award multiple times

Stockton...dont let his size full you......all time leader in pts and steals.....clever player....(better than NASH in his prime! and Nash got two MVPs in this era)

92 team was simply too big for this current squad

I actually think the team that could compete with 92 team was thatOlympic teams that had

Shaq at center.....young Garnett at SF....Duncan (I think) was PF

Hutch,

You might want to add durability and versatility to the Magic man as well.

  Rose > Magic
