    LeBron bashers (and apologists), please read........

    you can call him a jerk off for tattooing "the chosen one" on his back.

    you can say he was an idiot for "the decision" special in summer 2010 to leave cleveland for miami

    you can say he shy's away from the last second shot or that he used to.

    you can begrudge him for leaving miami to go back to cleveland.

    you can begrudge him for many things.

    but one thing that only a Know-nothing Sports-moron or someone completely biased against him would say, is that he did Not live up to the hype.

    this is one of the most asinine things i have ever read.

    i have followed sports for nearly 4 decades.

    i have followed the NBA since 1985

    NO PLAYER THAT HAS ENTERED THE LEAGUE IN THAT TIME HAS FACED MORE PRESSURE TO WIN THAN THIS GUY

    PROBABLY NO PLAYER IN HISTORY (NOT WILT, NOT RUSSELL, NOT MAGIC, NOT BIRD, NOT MICHAEL) FACED AS MUCH PRESSURE AND EXPECTATIONS COMING INTO THE LEAGUE THAN THIS GUY

    his team's games were on national television during his senior year of HS multiple times for crying out loud

    cover of every sports magazine when he was only 18

    Michael was picked #3. Kobe #13. Lebron was picked NUMBER ONE and was the end all be all according to the sports media

    in 15 years in the league he was won 3 titles and been to the NBA finals an astonishing NINE TIMES

    again, love him or hate him, that's fine, but please do not insult my sports intelligence by saying he UNDERACHIEVED vs the expectations.

    that is COMPLETELY ASININE especially since NO ONE BEFORE HIM IN THE NBA FACED THE PRESSURE HE HAS

    oh and btw, at 33.5 years old, HE AIN'T DONE


    i am fit to be tied

    You are correct, I dont remember any player out of HS with more expectations and he has more than lived up to them, he exceeded them

    LeBron still owes Miami 5 titles... remember?

    Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6 but 7 titles were promised from LeBum's mouth.

    LeBum is an all time great because of his sheer size and athleticism but he has never lived up to the ESPN and Nike hype machine that went crazy when he hit the scene. Not even close.

    Cmon man....Those dudes above are average joes at best...How many All-Star selections between those 4? Gasol was a good fit for Phil’s system I’ll give that to you...If it wasn’t for Kyrie carrying his ass in the finals when they beat Golden State they wouldn’t of won. Lebron wanted Wade and the others gone. He asked for this. It’s a shame the Celtics lost Kyrie and Hayward because they would of swept the sorry ass Cavs

    The idea of him not being a good teamate is retarded cause ANY team outside of warriors would take him, and trump is piece of trash lots of ppl think that that point is irrelavent to anything

    This is a great discussion mainly because nobody ever talks about Lebron. Finally we have a place to give our thoughts.

    A4K you are my buddy, especially in the stock game where you are an absolute witch. you know how you have to be an Unemotional Investor when it comes to stocks and money? same thing here. yes, he said a stupid asss thing "not one, not two, not three, not four......."
    but you MUST Remove that from your mind.

    you know who else was overhyped? bryce harper of MLB. absolutely phenomenal freaking talent but they build him up way too high, so he fails

    basketball a TEAM game. lebron has done more with less talent around him (save for miami) than virtually every top 10 nba player of all time

    please do Not blame the player for what the media tried to create. you are better than this!!!

    Well go look at lebrons numbers for game 5-6 and 7 2016 Finals ? And what about that insane block on iggy late in game 7? Yes kyrie is a great player and also very clutch- It took everything from both kyrie and lebron too beat a 73 regular season team? And what did GSW do the following year? They added maybe the best offensive player ever- too take down the KING- MJ is the only guy I put ahead of lebron

    I never knew he had "the chosen one" tattooed on is back. That's funny. I like him even less now.

    Definitely not an underachiever though.
