The guy basically encouraged us to hate him. Tell us its easy once you actually accomplish it. So far, he is player that has lost in every finals he has ever played in -- no matter how much the deck was stacked in his favor.

You know the Spurs were the better team in 2007

Well, if you called yourself "King Roofis" and "The Chosen One", and yet when crunch time came you crawled into a hole and hid, and then told us "commoners" that our life isn't as good as yours, I imagine you'd hear some criticism, too.

One thing about Karl Malone, MJ & Kobe, they never wet the bed if the game was close & somebody passed them the ball.

I don't feel sorry for him at all. He proudly accepted the title "King James" and has accepted all of the hype by others plus pushed the hype even higher with his own actions.

If he wants all the praise when times are good, he better be ready for all the scorn when times are bad.

The smart thing would be for him to learn to act humbly.

It's a combination of things

-Money, media image, the lack of only being a highschool player.

-The culture! Look at all the "hate" towards Justin Bieber. Bieber is no different than any other boy band members.....new kids on the block, n sync..haven't there always been teen idols? Bieber has never done anything to anyone, but he probably has the most hate on the internet.

-The economy. If wages haven't gone up for 10 or 15 years, and Lebron is making $100 jillion dollars, talking smack....easy to hate him.

The NBA should create a new developmental league, called, "Getting a good head on your shoulders". Open it up for 18-25 year olds (or older). LOL. Unfortunately, a lot of people would get called in.

Karl Malone was the worst crunch time player for a superstar ever. He choked constantly. Missed 2 free throws against Bulls, turned the ball over in the final seconds against Chicago where a field goal would have all but guaranteed a game 7, and went 8-22 from the field and 6-12 from the foul line in a game 7. Malone was HORRIBLE in crunch time. Remember, the mailman doesn't deliver on Sundays(see game 7 against Seattle in '96).

Stockton was Utah's crunch-time closer. Malone carried them offensively from quarters 1-3.
