If you haven’t seen the new Beat commercial staring Lebron James, then watch it now.
That song got me pumped up so much that I needed to find out who it was. The artist is Hozier and the song is “Take Me to Church”. After listening to that song 100 times I decided to check out his whole album and it’s MAGIC. I’ll have to put in into rotation between The Lumineers and Of Monsters and Men.
Here’s the thing: cramps suck, especially for a basketball player like Lebron, who routinely plays 40-42 out of 48 minutes in a game. Add in the fact that the air conditioning broke and it was apparently 90 degrees inside the AT&T Center and I can understand you getting cramps in your legs. But come on. Game 1 of the NBA Finals, you’re going for a three peat and trying to get your team into the “greatest teams ever” discussion…and you leave the game with cramps. I’m rooting for the Heat to win. I no longer despise Lebron, because it’s clear he’s the best player on the planet and saying otherwise at this point in his career makes you look very, very stupid. No one can guard him, and he can guard ANYONE on the other team. What else do you want in a player? But situations like these make it really hard to defend him. How can one of, if not the best athlete in the world continually leave the game with cramps? It doesn’t seem possible that this can keep happening. Is he not hydrating himself? Are the trainers Texan spies? It really boggles my mind. I hope Lebron comes back strong Sunday and the Heat rally off four straight wins and we can get past this. But for now, bring on the Midol jokes. Lebron has cramps.

So we’re not going to include Kevin Love or Kyle Lowry or the dozen or so other guys that DO have a triple double this year? I’m not one of those hockey fans who thinks they get boned with ESPN exposure because SportsCenter repeatedly shows a guy who is 7 feet tall dunk (even though its true). If hockey fans want to know why they’re on NBC Sports and not ESPN they should revolutionize (?) against their commissioner who locked out the sport twice in eight years. As far as ESPN is concerned, this is why people hate you. We know Lebron is great. We know he’s your bread and butter. But we don’t need to know he doesn’t have a triple double this year. Especially when there are a dozen people who you rarely cover who have accomplished that. Lebron doesn’t need to be on every list or every segment of your show. Would it kill you to get some Dirk stats up in there!?
Lebron James really gets no respect. The guy goes out and puts on an unbelievable performance against one of the best teams in the NBA and it barely got any media coverage. ESPN basically ignored it. No major news outlets like the NY Post and Associated Press reported on it. It’s almost as if it never happened. This once again proves that Lebron is one of if not THE most underrated athlete of our time. I pray for the day when he gets the exposure he deserves.
Is Lebron trying to overthrow his evil twin brother or playing a basketball game? Because I honestly can’t tell. If Lebron wants to know why the whole world hates him, look no further than last night. A few years ago Lebron got a face boo boo while playing for the Cavs and wore a regular face mask. Now he gets the same boo boo and of course he has to make a spectacle of it. He knew the game was on TNT. He knew it would get national coverage. And now instead of the story being about his TEAM winning the game, SportsCenter will have 18 different segments dedicated to his mask. Puke city.
This response comes after Lebron James had listed his top 4 NBA players of all time (Bird, Magic, Jordan, Robinson), leaving Russell out. I’m not sure if it is just me, but I’ve noticed Lebrons been getting a bit cocky and who better to put him in his place than good ol’ Billy Russell.
Suck it Lebron. I guess 11 rings doesn’t get you on the Mount Rushmore of basketball.
Jalen Rose seems to think so. Check out the video below to hear the prediction of all predictions.
PS- This just might be the story to get Tim Tebow and Lebron James off of SportsCenter (At least for one segment).
PSS- Here is Jordan dominating current NBA all-star, O.J. Mayo back in 06. Still got it…at least in 2006 he does.
This a tough one. I threw up immediately after seeing both pictures so tie ballgame there. Stephen Tyler gets bonus points for the toe nail polish though. Lebrons four smaller toes look like they’re about to start a mutiny against the big toe but Tylers second toe is one of the most fucked up things I’ve ever seen. I’m picking Mr. Aerosmith. And now I’m going to rip my eyes out.
