    Whether a Heat fan or not, the stats and LeBron's overall performance speaks for itself. The author is totally correct. When needed the most, LeBron was basically a no-show. How a player finishes close games in the clutch, especially important games, is what really seperates the great players from the good ones, and truly defines their level of greatness. Time and time again, on the biggest stage of his thus-far career, LeBron fell short of expectations and what was needed to help his team succeed. Perhaps the pressure got to him. Only he knows for sure. But one thing is for certain... with all of his credentials, much more was expected from both his team's fans and his fellow team members. He will probably do better in the future. But for now, he owns no bragging rights. Besides Dirk and Wade, even Terry, Dallas's 6th man, outplayed him in the championship series. Again, the stats speak for themselves.

    The author must have been left off a team as a youth. LeBron took Cleveland from nothing (again where they are this year) to the playoffs regularly. The entire franchise was nothing without him.

    The author mentioned Kobe, that was the same Kobe who when Shaq left him was asking to be traded until the administration got him Gasol and Odom. That is what it takes to be a winner in the NBA right now.

    Did anyone see when LeBron played the NBA's MVP this season? Rose shot under 20% while guarded by James.

    Perhaps James made a mistake not with his decision but with the way he announced it. The Heat will get better as will James. This season he was the MVP but because everyone had a hate on for him it becomes okay for these diatribe article to be written

    As much as I dislike the Heat and James, more than anything now I just want to see Dirk win one. He has shown that "heart of a champion". He's had his fair share of angry tirades, but overall the guy just shuts up and plays. He has stayed loyal to his team, and doesn't talk about himself except when asked to. Guy is a stud! Go MAVS!

    LeBron is not even on the same level as Michael Jordan as Michael elevated his team and did it with mediocre role players around him. He went about things wrong last year and his legacy will be one od selfishness and greed.
