If LeBron folds up his tent out of frustration tonight, I'll no longer be the least bit interested by him.

What do you mean by "fold up his tent?"

A repeat of that seemingly disinterested and lethargic "effort" he gave against Boston two years ago.

He suffered a smaller-scale version of the same lethargic attitude last year against Dallas.

Actually I'd say they aren't disconnected from one another. The mounting pressure to win championships as the seasons go on is slowly eroding his confidence. He can talk all he wants, you have to go out and perform. I saw anything but a confident man in last season's finals. So he can boast about winning 100 championships, it's a lot of talk that hasn't been backed up when the pressure gets too intense( 2007 and 2011 finals, 2010 playoffs versus Boston). Right now he's a regular season juggernaut with a few stellar playoff performances, but when things get too tough he hasn't proven to me that he's as mentally tough as some of the greats he's often compared with( Jordan, Bird, Magic, etc).....

I hope the Heat win, only to get squashed by a superior Thunder team.

If *coincidence* strikes again, home team wins tonight's game 6. If Lebron's postseason history is taken into account, it'll be very difficult for him to win when trailing 2-3. So really, I don't know. What I do know is I'll be rooting for the WCF winner in the Finals.

I hope Lebron gets the critics off his back on Saturday Night with another ginormous game.

It took Jordan 6 years to get his rings-----I dont know if the Heat can knock OK City off----but for Lebrons sake, I hope he gets the opportunity.
