    This is our only chance to chance them. They are starting a Ben Wallace-Mop front Court for God's sake. For the next MONTH

    i say who cares, considering that he gets away with five travels per game (like Wade used to).

    i think it's funny that Lebron is trying to make up basketball moves that don't legally exist. Let's pray that the NBA doesn't honor his wishes in the future when it comes to this.

    I like how LeBron tries to explain it, to politick it.

    What a total loser.

    that was an obvious travel.

    the more egregious offense was when ESPN showed the replay from the playoffs where he took like 3-4 steps on a travel, stopped, then took 2 more steps, and it wasn't called

    Sometimes I wonder if LBJ really think he is King James. LOL, the "crap dribble". He needs to quit. That's why the game is so superficial now. "Superstars" always trying to change something up. He traveled and the refs called it. He needs to get over it. And I predicted (in the prescence of my home) that they were going to lose cause they are not at their precious Quickens Loans home.

    When the NBA canges rules, it's usually to make it harder for stars to dominate, not the other way around. Wasn't the goaltending rule for Wilt?
    :idea: Maybe they can make a special Crab-dribble rule for LeBron.

    Oh, wait... they already did. It's called a travel. :heh:

    Just think if they NBA instant replay for travel calls. That would really change the game.

    yeah right. That means NBA games would last as long as the super ball. Maybe more when wade or james are playing.

    That was so obviously a travel. If LBJ watched that ten times and didn't see anything wrong, he needs to get his eyes checked. WTH is a crab step anyway?

    Wiz should have won the game on X-mas if it had not been for the refs screwing them in the final minute.

    Not just that they showed it a million times and kept calling it the clutch game-winner, and every time you watched it the non call got much worse. They just blatantly ignored it.

    yeah that too, ignoring it was just as bad. i remember when chauncey took 4 steps in that regular season game to hit the game-tying 3 and they made a huge deal of it.

    crab step reminds me of when i'd play pickup at the gym and these kids would hop and THEN take 2 steps and claimed it was legal...they called it a 'hop step'
