    And for LeBron to say "I'm a winner":
    What have u won? Just an olympic gold medal that you were 'expected' to win...THATS it!

    "Shaking hands.....don't make sense to me" : That was a direct slap in the face to the memory of Ali vs Frazier, Jabbar vs Chamberlain vs Russell, The NHL, the winners of great tennis matches, The Magic/Isiah kiss, The Honor jackie Robinson displayed, the humbleness of a Tom Brady, etc...

    This guy and kids today like James are an example who what happens when you don't have a quality education and common sense. The hell with him. It was so Anikan Skywalker. AND he was wearing a YANKEE cap again! He has become DARTH PUPPET! hahahahahhahahahahahhaha

    Most of those Cavs fans are knuckleheads. There were a couple of good comments, though. This one wasn't bad:

    I like the one where the guy says David Stern set up the series so the Cav's would lose. Now that's delusional.

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that the Magic won for the following reasons:

    #1 They have such balanced scoring
    #2 I have a high regard for D. Howard
    #3 I DON'T LIKE LEBRON

    I remember when he came into the league, he was so very humble, taking advice from the great ones, Big Oscar Robinsor, Dr J and others, he was a good kid.

    It is amazing how the glamor of the spotlight can just turn you into to an all self-absorbing, holier than thou, and a cut above all the rest in only a few short years.

    I hope the Cleveland Cavs never make it to any playoffs ever agin let alone the NBA finals.

    Yeah, Howard seems to be the opposite of LeBron when it come to the star attitude. It's a lot easier to root for a team with Dwight Howard on it.

    I think the last time ANY Cleveland team won a championship in ANY sport was in the 1950's (football). :pound:So you will probably get your wish.

    Can you freakin' imagine that???

    The Cleveland Cavalions...NBA

    The Cleveland Indielions...MLB

    The Cleveland Browlions... NFL

    The Cleveland Barelions (They had an NHL team...the Barons, in the 70's).


    :pound::pound::pound::pound: Cleveland SUCKS!

    I just hope the Cleveland fans who see nothing wrong with Lebron sulking off the court also see nothing wrong when Lebron decides to take his ball and go play in Brooklyn with Jay Z.

    Lebron says he is a highly competitive who can't shake hands w/ the guy or team that beat him. What a bunch of BS. Every player, is competitive, no one likes to lose. At the end of the series, you look your opponent straight in the eye, congratulate him and move on. No one said he had to hug Dwight. An acknowledgment to a fellow competitor is sign of a professional. They do it in far more physical sports i.e. Peyton-Brady when Peyton got past Indy, boxing, MMA, NHL etc. You can still be upset and act w/ dignity. That being said, I am thrilled the Cavs got their clock cleaned.

    Even if Lebron is this big of a tool (which he probably is), I would still expect him to fake being a good sport in order to avoid the bad PR/ fan backlash and therefore have a better rep and command more money in endorsements going forward. Bad sportsmanship and bad business.

    I agree, at least show some form of respect to the team that managed to beat you. A simple handshake is all.

    And the irony, he was asked yet again about 2010 while wearing a Yankees cap. He's so going to leave that Cleveland for New York City. If he throws the first pitch in a game when he gets to the Knicks, I'm going to puke.
