    I'd do a 180 and only look at his good qualities while ignoring his obnoxious tendancies.

    Just a warning about a possible Cleveland trade.

    A guy named bry66 on cleveland.com spilled the beans about a deal cooking with the Raptors:

    Bosh sucks in 2k9. My Maxiell kick his ass so many times. [SARCASM]That's a smart trade I think [/SARCASM]

    Why would Toronto deal Bosh for a player on the way out and a player of limited production?

    They'd get cap space\relief for Wallace and maybe they're playing a lot of games against Denver next year.

    That would be 96 hugs per 48 minutes.

    I think the one good thing about this is, it will show who are the hack writers (like we already didn't know) and the guys with some self dignity.

    The lebron suckups:
    LZ Granderson, Peter Vecsey, and Drew Sharp
    LZ Granderson: All LeBron did by blowing off the Magic is show that losing isn't pretty - ESPN
    NBA - Don't gang up on quiet James - FOX Sports on MSN
    Two of a kind: Sidney Crosby, LeBron James caught in the media's glare | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    Some self dignity, pretty much everyone else.
    Drew's is probably the most disgusting. What is he trying to do? Get a job with Lebron's entourage?

    Edit: Obviously I'm ignoring the idiot writing for Cleveland papers.

    Lot of them are bringing up the Isiah thumbing of Jordan in 92. Thing is that the only time Isiah did that and James does it every year. If this was the 1st time then perhaps you could write it off as a mistake but its not.

    Isiah also ended up not making the dream team, get go by the Pistons, and has been basically trashed in the media as a player and executive ever since that happened.

    Anyone think Lebrawn will get the same treatment?

    Not a chance.

    Isiah did get black balled by Jordan being left off the Olympic team but he DID NOT get "let go" from the Pistons.........he ruptured his achilies tendon and retired. I also, have to disagree with you about his being trashed by the media as a player (I'll give you as an executive) he's always been highly regarded as a player with many considering him the best "little man" of all-time. Magic is the only reason you can't say best PG of all-time.

    Ask yourself would you wanna shake Dwight Howards hand after he crushed your dreams of being the youngest player ever to be swept in his first 2 finals appearances? I think not!

    If Lebron was MJ I'd be okay with his bad sportsmanship; If MJ ever lost the world would end..... when Lebron loses its deja vu.

    HE GOT FINED! 25k! :hoops:
    LeBron James fined $25K for skipping postgame news conference - ESPN

    Stern admitting he's wrong doesn't happen every day. :)

    "He understands why it was necessary for me to fine him $25,000 for missing the media availability."

    Oh, Give me a break! What a great guy to see the errors of his ways.

    I agree Winless. Chump change and Stern knows it.

    WTF? Does Stern call every player to ask their permission to fine them???

    He's afraid he'll go and pursue his football career with the NFL.
