I used to like him when he was in Cav's, and I am a Laker's fan. Didn't mind the "king" or the powder throwing. But that news conference and decision on what he is going to do with his "talent" did it for me. If you watch that news conference with shaq, you will see the difference, 75% of the time he is praising the Magic. We all change jobs, but the day you move on from your burger flipping gig, you don't rub it in the face of the owner and co-workers. You show up, thank them and let them know you are moving on. You call them every week for the 1st 3 months just to say hi.

Taking his talents to South Beach where he goes for 8 points on 3-11 shooting in the biggest game of the year; took exactly one shot in the entire 4th quarter. King? Please. D. Wade is so far superior to him it's a joke.

Wade is clearly the MVP in this series. He has real cojones to step up in the lane and contest the Bigs.

Lebron wins the Oscar for best supporting superstar.

Did Lebron play tonight?! I thought Dirk was sick with fever.

I always liked Wade, he is a great player and a better human, only reason I am rooting for Dallas is Lebron.

Same here. I actually used to like Miami, until Lebron showed up. I actually would have still been rooting for the Heat (except when they played Chicago). What I didn't like was how Lebron left Cleveland and the disgusting event they had claiming all the championships they would have, and blah blah. If Lebron would have been more humble and not such a attention *****, everyone look at me because I am so important type of person, I would have still been rooting for Miami. I think a lot more people would too.

Honestly, I don't like Kobe, but I have respect. I used to not like Lebron either and I used to have respect for him. However, since he came to Miami, I lost all respect. I really hope that he fails and never gets a ring.

Not a bad role to play if it leads to a championship.

So MVP that he can't catch a ball in the clutch...

As for supporting role, you do realize Lebron leads the team in about every category. Just thought I would mention that.

Not so much!

Finals stats for Heat:

Wade 29.5 pts/game 8 rebs 4 asts
Bosh 18.25 pts/game 6.5 rebs 1.5 asts
Lebron 17.25 pts/game 7.25 rebs 6.25 asts

I personally don't care where he went (although he could of been nice enough not to waste an entire half or whole hour on ESPN during primetime to announce where he was going) ...but he's a flopper!

Wade has been unreal in the Finals. Lebron has been invisible. Bottom line. I suspect tonight Lebron will force things and probably put up big numbers but I also suspect the team will struggle as a result. And that's typical--he knows his reputation is on the line and that is going to be more important to him than the final result. I almost wonder if he'd rather have a big night and lose than have another low scoring night and win.

And another thing--he is now complaining about EVERY CALL that goes against him. He makes that shocked/surprised face and puts his hands up and looks towards the bench after every call against him. So lame.
