Yes, it's time for this man to get a RING and he needs to be wild in the Finals just like last night

Is there a specific reason you capitalize certain words in this manner? It doesn't really add to whatever point you're trying to make.

Just pointing out what he needs and that's it time.

Ok, just pointing out that capitalizing didn't really make your point any stronger.

You having a problem with my capitalization won't stop me from doing it again so we should talk about something else.

I never said I had a problem with it. I think it's FUNNY, like most of your posts. See what I did there?

His FG% have also been good. He's a PG/SG in a PF body- the percentages he puts up on a year to year basis are fine. They would be better if he didn't spend the first 2 or 3 quarters trying to shoulder the weight of the team and take 4 or 5 really tough shots.

I don't think its a confidence issue more of pressure issue to me. His first 4-5 years he played on a team that was one of the underdogs going into the playoffs. If the Cavs lost- his cast could be blamed. The pressure mounted it seemed in 08-09 and 09-10 as his team was the favorite and the organization surrounded him with better talent and the Cavs lead the league in the Reg. season.
If he plays like last night none of this matters, Kurt Rambis has been saying forever that Lebron plays out of position when he gets the ball at half court or at the top of the three point line, last night he got it around 15-17 ft from the basket and was unstoppable with his back to the basket.

Just because he went off last night doesn't mean he shouldn't be working on ways to refine his offensive game as he ages. You know what made Jordan great? He was never satisfied.

I was being kind of sarcastic, I ripped him for his post game and last night he blew up, that's all. Kobe is like Jordan that way, just not as talented.
