My problems with him are simple:
Instead of building something in Cleveland, he ran off to Wade. Then he came back to Cleveland after Wade and Bosh were finished and joined a set squad. Now he's going to leave and join another set squad. He's a follower.
It doesn't take much listening to him to know that he's just an obnoxious person. How many times has there been drama on a LeBron James team? It seems like EVERY YEAR. He's the only common denominator. Exit interviews confirm this. Michael and Kobe were toxic as well... because they were ruthless competitors and demanded nothing less than excellence. LeBron is a pretend ruthless competitor. He's just toxic because he's mentally a teenager. He just enjoys drama.
- he complains way too much
Seriously... has this guy never actually fouled anyone? Has he never turned the ball over and it's just his fault? Has he never had a good enough team? Every game he gets 1 or 2 fouls and he has the most confused look on his face. Bro, it's basketball. People move fast. Sometimes you go for the ball and they change directions. It happens all the time. Yeah, we get it... Isaiah Thomas sucks in an ISO offense when he isn't the ISO guy. It doesn't mean that you just don't cross half court and sit there and watch while pouting that someone else has the ball.
How many times has an NBA analyst criticized him over basketball related things and he responds with something stupid like "you're just a hater" "my life is better than yours." Stephen A Smith has a disclaimer now every time he has to critique LeBron. It says something like "Breaking News: LeBron is a great father, great husband, great person, etc." because the guy goes mental if he's ever criticized.
He's supposed to be the best basketball player. Yet, how confident are you that he will win this year? Or any year? Not that much. Doesn't it always seem to be the case that he somehow stumbles into the Finals? Do you think that Michael would have allowed a round 1 Game 7 against these Pacers to be decided by a couple points? With Michael, there was always a constant: he was going to win. I never had a doubt in my mind in any year during the 90s.
Sorry, should have started with this. I cannot like any NBA player that isn't on the Celtics.
