I read nothing but good things about how his teammates in high school loved him...then while he was in cleveland (until his last year) that everyone loved him (including the media).
then he makes one mistake and does the 'going to south beach' thing and everyone hates him.
it's stupid. he's a good dude and he's the best player the sport has seen since jordan...and it's not close
everyone's entitled to their opinion, but I don't understand the hate.
Of course his HS teammates loved him....how many games did his teams get to play on national TV??? He was the hometown hero in Cleveland so of course everybody loved him.
Obviously the decision thing was a complete disaster.....to pretty much take a shit on your hometown team on national TV was just plain awful The thing that really irks me are the comparisons to Jordan...yes, he is an incredible athlete and one of the most skilled players to come into this league in a long time, but theres something missing. How many times has LBJ disappeared in huge moments in the playoffs? That's when MJ was at his best....he wanted the ball, he needed the ball. Until LBJ starts showing that, the comparison have to stop.
