Bron had 3 of the bad turnovers in the 4th to blow the game open again. Lakers actually made their run from down 20 with Bron on the bench in the 3rd.

The loss to the Dallas Mavericks in the Finals and his performance in that Finals alone disqualifies him from any GOAT conversation period. He is the most arrogant NBA superstar I have ever seen.

Thats what I keep pointing out and I get a lot of flack from the LBJ fan boys...Not sure why he did not guard KD in the 2nd half/4th Quarter...He wanted no part of KD...

It's obvious man. These fanboys will surely disappear tonight. MJ would never refuse to guard an opposing player I know that.

You are clearly beyond clueless. You cannot comprehend that Jordan’s teams during his 6 title years did not get to 3 losses in series which shows his dominance, and why he was never facing elimination games. Lebron faces so many more elimination because he loses more. Open your eyes Windhorst.

Relax Brian Windhorst Jr.,

Jordan did not play in many elimination games during his championship run. He never even saw a game 7 in any Finals. Simply put, Mike was not facing elimination as many times as Lebron does. Should tell you something. sleep2

Good luck Achilles. Iggy being out is big for Warriors. I am still undecided on a side.

Here is the link to see yourself.

http://www.nba.com/article/2018/05/23/all-defensive-teams-official-release-2017-18-season

Kevin Durant 31 Total defensive team votes (7 First team Votes)
Klay Thompson 24 Total defensive team votes (8 First Team Votes)

Lebron James: 1 Total Defensive Team Votes (0 First Team Votes)

Pretty clear that the media and league view KD and Klay as better defensively currently compared to Lebron in the most current season (2018).

The fact that Paul George got left off of the first and second team defense shows that there are snubs on those first two teams. Many feel KD was also snubbed.


nmate,

Any response? Figured you would go silent on Lebron's defense with these voting results. 1 total vote for Lebron compared to over 31 All defense votes for KD and 24 for Klay. Pretty obvious the league recognizes Klay and KD are superior defense players currently.

What did you expect Lebron to say? Yeah I understand why Kyrie wants a trade and wants to leave me?

Yeah and Kyrie demanding a trade had absolutely nothing to do with Lebron right?

Coming off of three straight Finals appearances Kyrie simply demanded a trade because he was bored right? If anyone dares to criticize Lebron for anything we are "haters." These fanboys in here are funny.

All it takes is common sense to know what is true and what isnt...todays nba is no different that the drama from all decades past...experience following this league for over 30years is what fall back on...theres no way Lebron openly said he wanted to punch Kyrie in the face in a literal sense like a fight...things are always taken out of context nowadays for clickbait and reporters are guilty of trying to make a name for themselves...nba has always been part entertainment, part sport...believe what you will.


And in your 30 years of supreme sports knowledge you never heard of two teammates or alphas on the same team not getting along? Geeze if you believe all these teammates love and adore each other you are as gullible as those that read the click bait stories.

It was never reported that Lebron openly said it man. Whatever, like many covers users in this forum.... You know all...my bad. Next time I need a sports story analyzed I will come to you so you can tell me if it is newsworthy or accurate. Thanks

I do not, I especially do not believe all these theories in here regarding why Kyrie left from covers users. I think people that get paid to cover the sports know a tad more than this forum. Just my guess. I do agree with you that Kyrie did want to be the man and get out of Lebron;s shadow, I just also believe Lebron's treatment, and always referring to him as "kid" likely played a factor as well.

People have short term memory loss in here. There was an actual story coming out of Lebron's camp that he wanted to fight Kyrie or punch him in the face last summer when that story was swirling about Kyrie wanting out.

The one and only reason Irving left the way he did was because he knew James was going to ultinately leave Cleveland, and didnt want to be left on the scrap heap with a bunch of nobodies like the last time Cavs lost Lebron to Miami.


Ok Hoopshype, Inside Hoops, story was pretty much everywhere. May have a point, but considering Kyrie's tone was very different in an interview he did on the subject on First Take last summer, I doubt that was it.
