Yes, and eventually that will become the narrative and most people will forget how much he sucked in this series.

Haha way to just block out the whole part where I AGREE with everyone. I agreed with everyone the whole time but no one even took the time to really get the point that I was making. That's what happens around here. When everyone gets going on something and someone just makes a random objective comment that has even a hint of not going with the flow everyone goes crazy.

Also i didn't start any argument because i never disagreed with the fact that fouling is the by the book optimal thing to do.

You took my comment of stating that it was standard as not agreeing. They are two totally different things.

It is comparable. Both games by normal standards were "out of reach" and they both were elimination games. Alot of people were saying it's an elimination game so you claw to the end no matter how far down you are.

and *** him for shtting all over the fans by never once saying he had any intention of staying with the cavs.

why would he not try to win before leaving, don't you see that's irrational? Even worse, why would he give up on game 5 and do what he just did in game 6?

You're right he didn't. Lol @ everyone blaming Lebron for them not winning this series. You aren't going to win the championship when Mo Williams is your second best player.

Congrats to everyone who had money on the Celtics.

It is a good free agent market. The Cavs could lose Lebron and still sign 2 good players and perhaps still be a playoff team.

It would be hysterical to see Victor backpedal if Lebron stayed in Cleavland

So the best record in the NBA this year was just from LeBron single-handedly beating all the bad and mediocre teams?
