LeBron couldn't hit a jump shot against Dallas if his life depended on it. 18/7/7 from the best player in the world in the biggest series of his life, scoring less than 20 points in half the games, never getting to the foul line more than 4 times in a game, is completely unacceptable.

Now here's a fresh perspective: A Miami fan's POV post 2011 finals.

I don't hate Lebron because I don't know him personally but you've got to admit, dude's been in the league for 8 going on 9 years and he still has trouble posting up. If he learned to work the post he would have a ring all ready. Also I'm disappointed with his performance in the finals as well. I thought this was going to be the year he was going to take over considering how bad he played against the Spurs before. Instead Dirk was the guy that really wanted it.

Basically saying "Yeah I'm leaving, but I'll lead them on for a bit and get some press".

For non-Cleveland fans, they hate him because he's smug, arrogant, and an attention w*ore.

LeBron is hated so much, gets criticized and mocked so much that even Kobe feels sorry for him, Kobe spoke out saying for people to get off LeBron's back

Lebron isn't even on Pippen's level yet. Think about it this way: when jordan was in the league, you KNEW he was the best. Lebron isn't even the best player on his team. Lebron has to get past Wade, Rose, Dirk, and Kobe before we can even begin to discuss a Bird, Magic, Pippen, Robertson comparison. so, Jordan is out of the question.

I dont hate Lebron either, but I am a little disappointed in him.

This man is a fantastic athlete---a human marvel----he can do things that very few other players in nba history have done.

He does tend to disappear in the playoffs at times, and has trouble adusting to the intensity of defenses in the playoffs.

He is under intense pressure in Miami----the bar is set very high here, and anything short of an nba title will be considered falling short.

Also I think he could have handled his departure a little better---the espn decision special created some negativism. I think he should have just held a press conference in Cleveland to explain his decision locally first.

Lebron is still young----if he goes on to win three or four titles, people will forget about these shortcomings.

Cleveland seems to get the sh*t end of the stick when it comes to sports, but Baltimore has the same problem. The colts left, and the Bullets (now the wizards) left.

so why does the whole Country, the whole World have to hate LeBron? why do they feel they have a right to hate him when it should be Cleveland only?
