LeBron James is on another level now

Whether he's a faux Jordan or whether he's the next coming of Dr. J , it doesn't matter. Spurs in 4.

The inabilty to guard Lebron on 2 str8 possessions (uncontested dunks no less)at the end of regaulation are complete break downs that would not have happened under Larry Brown or probably under Mike Brown for that matter There was NO breakdown. Each time Lebron walked into the lane , the Pistons players turned the other way. I have it on disk. The league has the other teams scared of King James .

BULL. The league is allowing Lebron to waltz into the lane and opposing players are stepping out of his way , not because of fear of LeBrons spectacular dunks , but out of fear that the refs will call a foul for looking at King Lebron too long or breathing on him. It's absurd the way the " Lebron Rules " have changed the dynamics of the game and it actually has taken players out of their game. There are 400 players in the league and it is disrespectful for the league to make one player so special. He's NOT a better player than Kobe , but of course he's not as controversial , so the league is willing to sacrifice their credibility and the credibility of the game in order to crown Le Bron as the next " KING ". Cavs vs Spurs , a SWEEP , King James wont have a chance.

George Foreman claims he was doped prior to the "Rumble in the Jungle"

According to Hannity and Colmes , it's a vast left wing conspiracy and they will urge President Bush to invade the now defunct Kronk Gym , which had nothing to do with George Foreman.

Sacramento Kings fire Coach Eric Musselman.

They traded both of them after they had little to no trade value. Better to trade a year too early than a year too late. You might want to retract that. Webber is an unrestricted Free Agent next season and almost ALL of the teams in the NBA have already contacted his agent.

Referee Suspended Indefinitely

Getting inside someone's head is part of sports , either you do it , or you lose , it's as simple as that , a lot of the game is purely psychological , and IF you don't gain the edge , then you lack the competitive edge to play the game.

Referee Suspended Indefinitely

When Duncan was called for the technical he was laughing with a towel over his head , watch the clip again. It was blatant misconduct on crawfords part , nothing more.

Referee Suspended Indefinitely

IF Duncan had " Been a man and Got in Crawfords face " , he would have been suspended until some time next season and the Spurs would have had ZERO chance at winning the NBA Championship. Duncan did the right thing , for his team , he took the hit , and that made him a BETTER MAN than Crawford who couldn't hold his temper.

Referee Suspended Indefinitely

I've been watching the game (NBA) since the Days of Earl the Pearl , Wilt Chamberlain , Dave Bing , and when Kareem Abdul Jabbar was still Lew Alcindor , and I have never seen the type of unprofessional behavior such as that Crawford showed. The tape of the incident clearly showed that Duncan was watching the game and was focused on the game and places a towel over his head and began laughing because of an idiotic play. It had Nothing to do with showing up Crawford and the suspension was warranted and may NOT in fact be heavy enough punishment/ Crawford's behavior in the past has indicated a penchant for these type of things and he is known around the league for his hot temper. IF the players are being held to higher behavioral standards , then what makes Refs immune ? Even IF , Tim Duncan whines a lot , and from what the league has released into the media during his career , he is a model citizen , it's part of the game , and that shouldn't carry over to the ref asessing extra penalties when he is on the bench. The tape doesn't lie , Crawford was OUT of bounds and should be FIRED , and in fact , If I were Stern , I would investigate him to see if he didn't affect the game on purpose. This whole thing smells and there might be gambling or something else fishy involved . The league has enough negative publicity , Ref's like Crawford are NOT needed.

The Wages of Wins.

The dreams some of these guys have .Cleveland . uh huh .. KG does need to move but where ? There's a lot of teams that could use him and a lot who could afford him and a few that can't afford him willing to take a chance on the luxury tax if it gets them to the finals . KG IS a top 10 player (top five ,???) and would be an asset to any team ...Someones phone wil be ringing off the hook come JULY , but I am betting it wont be clevelands . whoever it is will be getting a great role player IF KG is willing to give up the limelight to HELP a team win . Teams rarely win with the Championship with a one man team ( Jordan and Chamberlain being the exceptions) and KG needs to be the one making the adjustment . And NO Clevelands not a bad team but rookies have three year contracts and there is NO way that they can sign KG and resign Lebron and stay out of the luxurty tax bracket . It's going to be hard enough keeping Lebron .

Shaq provides pregame hype for Pistons-Heat

Shaq provides pregame hype for Pistons-Heat

The series can go either way . Detroit is going to have to play at a level well above the garbage series that they checked in with Cleveland . Shaq is washed up and is a ice age behemoth on bad knees . Wade CAN'T carry the team on his back and their other players need to step up . Shaqs best years are behind him , as is about 300 pounds of LARD . If they ever bring the cartoons HillBilly Bears to real life , his mumbling antics would make a doggone good Papa Bear . Other than that , he's just a huge traffic cone in the lane . Now on the other hand , Rasheed needs to shut the hell up and play the damned game the way he knows he can , and quit trying to be a guard and get some guts and attack the lane . The NBA Championship is Detroits to lose . But if they do , Rasheed needs to be shipped off as a distraction whose time has come to get gone .

"I hate Kobe Bryant's rotten and derivative soul."

Damn , it's JUST a game . I love the game , but there's no psychopathic emotions surging within me to take such a pathetic stand . I love the Pistons , I like Lebron James and hope his rookie cards do as well as Jordans so I can cash in , but the rest of the addictive mindset towards the game , I can't fathom . Sounds like dude needs some serious psychological help so that he will realize that it's JUST A FRIGGING GAME .
