Not a Miami heat fat - no way no how nuuh! Love Lebron though, wherever he goes - Miami, Cleaveland or otherwise....is that cool or is that against some man code??? Look, in today's sports world associating a player with a team, for me at least, is like nailing down Jello - in most cases. Nash on the otherhand is the Suns, he's awesome too.

Nash is fine as long as he doesn't have to guard anyone over the age of 12.

Every year the Suns ran into the Spurs in the playoffs I kept thinking that Nash needed to change the name on the back of his jersey to "Mrs. Tony Parker".

For a guy who entered the NBA, at what 17 years old, it's understandable he got caught up in all the hype. He's 27 now and truthfully it takes most men this long to really mature. No offense.

Awwww, mathguy - i'm saddened by the "Mrs. Tony Parker" comment - we all know that high profile relationships never work out

I smell.....Jealousy. One word - Playoff's - which means that Nash was the last one standing against the team that took the title so what does that say about all other pointguards in the NBA??? At least he went out and did his best - one guy can only do so much ya know. Plus, it wasn't Parker's game - he's a chump, it was Duncan - the guys a beast. Even Ginobili is more of a competator than parker.

Covered this in a thread here a while back. Every time they'd run into the Suns they'd feed the ball to parker. His attempts, FG% and points would all go up.

I will try to find the thread and bump it.

I honestly hope he stays in Miami and doesn't pull the win one for Cleveland mentality a few years from now and wants to come back. He was quoted in an article 3 or 4 months ago regretting the decisions and acting like he may join back down the road. Ship has sailed IMO.

I'd rather build a team around Kyrie Irving and do the Thunder blueprint with a little luck of course. Draft another future star next week and the year after and then take on the Lebron led Heat in a few years.
Oh whatever...the hot chick dumped you guys, all she has to do is show you a little "cleavage" and you beg her to come back. I would NEVER turn down James if he wanted to come back to my town.

I mean really, if the documented racial disparities in opinion polling are there, why is LeBron so much more "obviously" hate-able to whites than blacks? What makes him so much worse than John Elway holding teams hostage to cheat the draft system?
lol u really asking why lebron is more 'hate-able' to whites than blacks?
why were cops more feared in l.a by blacks than by whites in the 80s and 90s
why is the u.s government more hated by middle eastern countries than by americans
why is pacquiao hated more by mexicans than by filipinos

go cry somewhere. people hate lebron because he's been an a**hole, it has nothing to do with him being black. the same reason people hate a-rod. oh wait its because arod is dominican right? omg white people hate a-rod because he's dominican. lol smh

Mark Cuban Calls Out Skip Bayless - YouTube


Watch as Mark Cuban takes it to Skip Bayless. Skip's assertions essentially devalue the Dallas title last year.

So 1 down, 7 to go still. I don't see it happening. Lebron is still pathetic for teaming up with other star players. It's one thing when a guy in the twilight of his career does it to seek that elusive ring.

Enough with this GARBAGE. Please, please name me a championship team that did not have at least three all star caliber players or more than on future hall of famer that has won an NBA championship since 1980. Come on name them?

Bulls: Jordan, Pippen Rodman/Granr
Lakers: Shaq and Kobe o Kobe Gaso/Bynum and Odom.
Spurs: Duncan, Pakers, Ginolbli
Lakers: Worth, Kareem, Magic
Celtics: Bird, Mchale, Parish
Rockets: Hakeem and Clyde
Heat: Wade and Shaq
Mavs: Dirk who was amazing + Kidd, Marion, Chandler it was really just their time
Celtics: Allen, KG, Pierce, Rondo.

Enough with this garbage every championship team has hall of famers and all stars.
