if you're going to say that he can't motivate players/change gameplans in illegal type posting, okay.

he can only be the scapegoat if lebron stays.

if he leaves, puh-leeeeze. those of us that watched 82+ games saw what just happened. 95% of those in this thread i imagine know, but don't KNOW.

we know.

1+ minute left down 9 in a series deciding game you always foul. Standing around for the last minute letting it run out is absurd, regardless of your chance of winning.
lol yeah

This isn't game 35 in the middle of January. You lose, your season is over...I'm doing everything humanly possible to give my team a chance to play another game.

That was gross. LeBron looked like the uninspired version of Randy Moss out there at the end.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

Well I was right about Lebron getting a triple-double but Boston was just too good tonight and too many turnover from the Cavs and lapses on defense. Magic have looked unstoppable so far but they get their first real test in the conference finals.

Last edited by Lee C; 05-13-2010 at 11:03 PM. Reason: Also obv agree with the lack of heart by the whole Cavs team at the end.

oh no, you're right, there's more than just that.

effort was just not there. coach can do a handful of points, not that.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

I'm not going to **** on LeBron for not crying, cursing, or pouting when the game ended. I'm sure he was just being a good sport and congratulating the Celtics. I don't know why people think he should throw a fit. We don't know what his reaction is going to be in the locker room. And even if he doesn't get all mad later, it doesn't matter.

My post wasn't even necessarily for not fouling all i'm saying is that the LOL ZOMG WAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTT???? comments about cleveland not fouling when they were down 9 with :45 left don't really make sense if you watch alot of NBA. Obviously everyone is having fun with the cleveland fail and with the above are probably just making alot out of nothing.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

actually this loss does piss me off. because Boston is an entitled city. they don't feel like they are, because they've had a champion antagonist that's bested them numerous times in championship games; e.g. Lakers in the NBA, Yankees in the MLB, various teams in the NFL (Colts & Cowboys, the stupendous SB loss in '07), so they get carry on with a victim complex for their generally rich franchises and no one calls them out on it. everyone knows the Lakers and the Yankees are the evil empire, even their fans know it and accept it. but fans of Boston sports teams have his this victim mentality where they think they've suffered but of course they don't know what real suffering is. defeating Lebron & Cavs will reinforce this self-serving image.
