You have a point bro...
|Re: The NBA Begins by Ocon: 8:05am On Aug 03|
— No star want to play with LeBron
— LeBron has never won anything without 2 All stars
Which one should we believe?
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 10:03am On Aug 03|
You guys have absolutely no argument to make in this case and it is very clear with your emotional takes. I made my case and highlighted the onus of my argument and have stuck to it. More importantly my points have not delved away from the onus of my argument. Why is that anyone who criticizes LeBum is assumed to have taken shots at his legacy? Isn’t that a distressing proof that the man hates criticism and detests taking responsibilities? Is LeBum above fair criticisms that make logical sense especially from people who have the credibility? You are even helping me make my point with the Splash brothers comment because they clearly said “playing against” versus “playing with”.
Where is all the noise about Charles Barkley’s comment? Everyone wants to bark at Griffin because he is not a former player but no one wanted to attack Chuck when he called LeBum whiny? They know Chuck will baptize them as e dey hot!!!Yet you guys think LeBum is tough skinned!! Once again, the media is controlling the narrative of this discuss by saying Griffin is nothing without LeBum and to that I will say “fair argument” but on the flip side Griffin also gave LeBum everything he asked for to win a championship even to the detriment of the Cavs team and the Cavs are paying for it today.
May I remind you that Griffin gave Bums like Tristan Thompson and JR Smith ridiculous extensions and took the Cavs over the luxury tax numerous times because they are LeBum’s minions? Who gave TT a $80 million buck extension in the NBA? Today, the Cavs are stuck with contracts of those two Bums and guess what? they are unable to move them. Yet Griffin has not earned the right to criticize LeBum? Griffin has on record given LeBum praise for his greatness and talent but the one time he makes a fair criticism he is a hater? You guys are ridiculous and unbelievable at this point.
So a fair shot against LeBum is always because he is hated. He enjoys the media accolades yet he is not tough enough to handle the criticisms when they come from the same media. I won’t be shocked if Griffin is termed racist because he called out LeBum.

Ah, the LeBron haters still waxing strong.
|Re: The NBA Begins by DeeMain(m): 11:01am On Aug 03|
Griffin is grief stricken and has backtracked. He says it's the media circus and the pressure it brought on him that was the problem, fullstop.
The criticism about the pressure and stress involved in trying to deliver rings every year is fair. Same as the long term effect of such a short term focused strategy.
I don't see it as a Lebron problem alone though, I see it as a management decision and the consequences therefrom.
But there was one ring and four consecutive play off finals to show for it.
Every other thing you said are lies and hate made flesh.
Hate is evil.
And a waste of human resource and energy.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:06pm On Aug 03|
Lebron gets none of the blame? do people not still blame him for losing to the spurs in 2007? or the mavs in 2011? Le 3-6 they say, cause every team loss is on him. Does every FO decision not get blamed on lebron? Do you not have social media or a TV? If lebron never gets blame then most of you dweebs on this thread are walking contradictions. Theres literally a morning sports show dedicated to blaming lebron. Many pundits have made their career off of blaming lebron for everything. Lebron doesnt get any blame? LMAO! You cant be serious. And how many times has he accepted the blame for losing in 2011? One second you dweebs are saying lebron only wins cause his teams were so stacked the next you cross eyed hypocrites are saying no one wants to play with him. LOL! You lot are confused.
Again what did Griffin say that can be said to be grievous or demonic against LeBum? When LeBum's team win, he gets all the accolades and glory but when he loses, it is the fault of others. isn't that the truth? The mainstream media is driven by his machination and despite his numerous failings during the finals, someone else took the heat for his mistakes. Do you guys want me to write the litany of excuses that have been made for LeBum's failings that do not include LeBum taking responsibility? Worse still, important shots like the Ray Allen shot, Kyrie clutch never get relevance they deserve in the narration of LeBum's glory. My argument has absolutely nothing to do with D. Griffin, for all I care, the man is in a better place but please and please, don't come with how he is the best thing since sliced bread, yet, he can not chew sourdough when it is hot.As expected a lot of what he said was taken out of context because him and lebron get along quite well but wait, is this not the pattern with all great players? them getting all the accolades? was that not the pattern with the bald degenerate? You don't believe me, listen to what his teammates had to say.
"And then somebody asked scottie what do you think the legacy of this team is going to be? and then the smile that was on his face just totally disappeared. And then he said all that they're gonna remember is that Michael won". None of them ever felt like they got their proper due..."
My advice to you, channel the energy you spend hating someone it has no effect on to doing something productive and you will definitely see some improvement in your life. Hate is like a venom that poisons all the joys in your life.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:08pm On Aug 03|
Its so satisfying how all the nincompoops took the story and ran with it only for Griffin to come out and debunk the treacherous hyperbole spewed out by a rapacious writer. Hold your Ls in peace you sad shameless goblins!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:10pm On Aug 03|
Of course he did and like he said, the reaction off of that proves that its the media and the mindless haters that make it all unbearable. They saw what they wanted to see and ran with what they wanted the deluded bunch. Just look at them crawling out of their caves to blame lebron by claiming lebron never gets any blame. LMAO!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:14pm On Aug 03|
Like seriously these people cant see how confused they are
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:23pm On Aug 03|
This literally doesnt even begin to compare with KD. KD doesnt get half the criticism lebron does on a daily basis. People literally spent days psychoanalyzing and slandering him for dunking during his sons game. And then he got called racist for doing "a 'mexican accent' on taco tuesdays". Just after that died down more slander. A lot of people will be jobless without lebron. He makes a cryptic post on twitter and that dweeb wants to call him thin skinned. LMAO!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:28pm On Aug 03|
Used to be on the Mark Jackson train until i heard he took Curry to the church get get healed for his ankle, and then his affair with the stripper, and then him having his talentless wife sing the Nation Anthem for the warriors. LOL Add that to the fact that he was a sub-par coach at best and yes the politics of hims views on other things he will never get a coaching job again and hes lucky to have gotten the color commentating job he has. Rightfully so too.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:35pm On Aug 03|
Dillian whyte once again proving my theory. All those UK heavyweights are juiced to the gills and their corrupt commissions from UKAD to the BBB of C are covering for them. Its shameless! They keep accusing each other but the truth is they're all dope heads. People forget that Fury failed for Nandrolone a while back, Whyte was banned for two years for pissing hot and hes pissed hot again and AJ well, no one needs to tell you that guy is on rocket fuel. Apparently the UKAD gives him testosterone "exemptions" because his natural levels are "low". No wonder once went to the US and got in the VADA pool he got his as- whooped by a fat man. As a matter of fact it seems hes out of the pool again. For shame! if i were Andy i would stay as far away from UK as possible for that rematch. I'm glad he knows its a trap.
Deontay Wilder is the only clean heavyweight period!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 12:39pm On Aug 03|
Jon Jones is just a train wreck. Lets hope cinnamon the stripper/waitress's story is as fake as her name but man, why is he always getting into situations like these? SMH, Being a Jon Jones fan is the most stressful thing in the world.

|Re: The NBA Begins by DeeMain(m): 1:34pm On Aug 03|
It's really crazy bro. Lebron was literally lynched and skinned for the 2 finals losses with the Heats. How these players survive and overcome such mass mobbing should teach all humanity a thing or two about the invincibility of the human spirit.
Dudes here are trying to rewrite history because of sheer hate.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:21pm On Aug 03|
The fact that they are even celebrating that Griffin appeared on The Jump to retract/ clarify his statement is what cracks me up because there is so much predictability in the action. Griffin spoke his mind and honest truth with SI and I knew it was a matter of time he gets pressured into retracting.
For those of you celebrating the retracting, let me educate you that after SI released the interview, LeBum’s camp approached Griffin and for those who question if LeBum controls the narratives surrounding his news or mainstream media, this is your answer. I am going to bury this argument because it is very obvious the Queen can do no wrong.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:27pm On Aug 03|
I have never liked UK boxers and I have made it known on this thread even to my buddy A40 who seems to be attracted to some of them. They lack chin, technique and are lazy fighters with big mouth. Dillian Whyte is a circus and I honestly don’t know how he got a 3-0 decision from the officials when Rivas beat the devil out of him.
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 3:24pm On Aug 03|
from jump melo had that pride. of the three rookies melo, wade and lebron, melo was supposed to get that ring first. he was the most skilled for sure.
any GM that takes Melo is risking his job...it could blow up bad
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 3:26pm On Aug 03|
I know rite..
So make Lebron no talk, make e no defend himself. Just absorb lie and take it like dat. LOL
Greatness invokes hate. If you want to be great, remember this. peoples be giving reasons why they hate you but na smoke screen. Its just hate. If you like employ 10000 people, send 100000 to school. Still gon hate
Its ok tho, baba God that made you great still dey ur side
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 4:00pm On Aug 03|
I don't even like you bird boy and i agree with you 100%. You have never made a post that made more sense than this.
|Re: The NBA Begins by DeeMain(m): 4:04pm On Aug 03|
Words on the marble!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 4:05pm On Aug 03|
Comes with the territory, being the GOAT and all. Unseating "black jesus" you know the blind witnesses will come out in full gear. I was just watching everything that they were saying and i was thinking how does he not retaliate and of course theres a limit to what any man can take. The scrutiny this man receives at the height of media and the age of hot takes no man has ever had to fathom and hes been doing it with so much grace and class. Considering where he came from and the career hes had both on and off the court, its nothing short of spectacular.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 4:12pm On Aug 03|
I think Whyte won the fight but he didn't look good against an undersized opponent regardless of how good rivas is. But then after that shitty performance it turns out you were doped up and still looked that bad? its also absolutely shameful that rivas's team didnt get notified about the abnormalities in whytes tests before the fight. And then the dodgy video of whyte and hearn discussing after the fight about how they dodged a bullet and how someone pulled off a miracle for them. It all reeks. I hope matchroom gets the mother of all lawsuits slapped on them.

Roland17:Lmaooo Griffin clearly got bullied and ran to backtrack his comments. Tragic
Honestly Bronsexuals want to be TD Jakes and Steve Harvey all of a sudden. This joke will never not be funny. These are the same bunch that spent 4 odd years calling KD a snake.
The same people that make crude jokes of Steph Curry's wife. Assigning her ownership to another man.
The same people that swear MJ got his old man killed want to suddenly start preaching to the choir. Can you believe the nerve of these hypocritical clowns talmbout hate as if they are not the most vile and disrespectful bunch of fans known to man.
Even LeShannon Sharpe got a taste of the wrath of slow Bronsexuals the other day. David Griffin said what he said, said his truth. And LeNomad's response showed he struck a nerve, unfortunately Griffin was too much of a poosie to back it up

I see what you did there...

|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 7:02pm On Aug 03|
That is why I love and respect Sir Charles Barkley a.k.a the Chukster!!! The man does not back track and owes not man any apologies. He called LeBum “Whiny” and his demand for more and more trades in his final season with the Cavs as “Inappropriate” especially when you already have 2 other AllStars. When LeBum responded by calling him a Hater, Chuck did not back down, he doubled down saying he was surprised LeBum took a fair criticism too personal and to far. Everybody including LeBum’s camp respected themselves and stayed away because Chuck will give it to you as e dey hot and he has the platform to promote it.
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 7:30pm On Aug 03|
donlittle25:All because LeShannon objected to his MCM coming to his son's AAU game and tried to steal the spotlight there as well. You should see how Bronsexuals tore him a new one
Ironically I think people overreacted to LeNomad's behavior on that day. That's kinda who he is, always wanting to be the center of attention at anybody else's expense but I'm sure there were many kids that were also thrilled to watch their hero show some skills so I don't think he deserved that kind of backlash
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 8:41pm On Aug 03|
Roland17:Chuck is a made man and HOFer. He's less likelier to be answerable to LeNomad than a guy like David Griffin who needs to not go out of his way to antagonize players because it's a bad look on his reputation
While I think David Griffin was a bit of a poosie for moonwalking on his comments I perfectly understand why
|Re: The NBA Begins by Khanben: 9:25pm On Aug 03|
Which other all-star did lebron have in his last season apart from k-love
