Um, all the irrational Lebron haters are certainly going to ignore the fact that he went ape-shat on Boston.

45pts on something like 25 shots? Holy crap....oh....and 14+ rebs? WTH?

But hey, it doesn't prove anythign to some of you guys....I mean he only dominated a playoff elimination game in the ECF. Really, at some point you need to cut him some slack. I can understand hating the guy, but some of the complaints are purely irrational.

Out of interest, who would you consider an irrational Lebron hater? I actually like the guy, and my critiques of him are because I know he's capable of more. I want him to be better than he already is.

Not a Lebron fan... BUT

I enjoyed seeing him go off... That was an impressive performance.

He had that (focused) look too... the one I have never seen him have.

The Finals are gonna be awesome!

Look around the boards. We had some chuckle-head start a thread blaming Lebron a while back because he made 1-2 FT's....after draining a 3pt shot to take the lead with 60 secs left.

He's "not clutch". Pretty much people cherry picking and focusing on last years finals and ignoring the ECF etc etc,.

Hey, I'm not saying he has remotely the kiiller instinct of some of the greats....just saying some of the criticism is overblown.

I really liked Lebron's performance on Thursday. He looked focus, played to his strengths and took over the game, especially considering no one else stepped up. But with that said, let's remember the pressure he still has on him. If he does not win tonight, that performance won't have much of a meaning. If they don't win a championship, then he will still be criticized. Put it in persepctive folks. Great performance, but he's got more work to do.

I got no problems with how he plays, I just think him and everyone else on that team are classless and I love watching them lose.
