There will be more pressure now, so even less of a chance the Heat would win. Not that they were probably going to beat whoever makes it from the west anyway.

He will lose again and I will laugh all the way home with my Bulls #23 jersey on.

People think Lebron should or is a one man show. There is the reason for a basketball TEAM. The other players have to pull their weight. That's why Lebron left Cleveland. The other team members weren't pulling their weight. Has anyone ever been at a job where they are doing all the work while the other employees sit back and surf the internet yet they get praise for the team effort? I have and it sucks. That's why Lebron left Cleveland. Now, no one even whispers a word about Cleveland unless it has something to do with Lebron. He put that team in the spotlight and back on the map.

That's the point though, he left Cleveland b/c he thought he couldn't win a championship there with the team assembled and joined forces with another top 5 player in the league in Wade, and Bosh who is in the top 10-15 range in the league; so if he can't win one w/those guys, who can he win one with?? And you can't compare your job to an NBA team...it's not that the guys in Cleveland weren't working hard, there are just some guys who aren't as talented as others. If anything, Lebron was the guy in Game 5 of the Boston series 2 years ago who was surfing the internet quitting on the team and sending the season down the drain, while the rest of the team was trying to do their job. And yes, it sucked as a Cavs fan watching that!

How can a Bulls fan laugh at a Heat Fan when the Bulls has not even sniffed the Finals?

The real problem with Lebron James is that there's a huge gap between the way he sees himself and the way he actually performs on the court. He's made himself a legend before he's done anything to make that a reality. Of course, if he led Miami to the championship now that Bosh is out for the rest of the playoffs, he could go a long way towards shutting the doubting Thomases up. (Personally...I don't think he's got the fortitude to do it.)

Correction, ESPN made him a legend before he accomplished anything and entered the NBA not Lebron.

You are delusional. Indiana has a much greater advantage with Bosh being out. Besides Lebron and Wade, the next highest scorer on the Heat had 5! They have some serious problems. It wasn't going to be easy before, but now it's really going to be tough. No way are they a sure thing to win any games from here on out without Bosh.

We have discussed Lebrons fourth quarters a lot----with Bosh gone, and aside from Wade, Lebron simply has to get more selfish in the fourth quarter and demand the ball.

In game two, he looked a bit hesitant again at the end of the game-----he is an unselfish player, but at this particular juncture I think Heat fans would rather have the ball in his hands a little more----if he doesnt get it done than so be it------you just want your cleanup hitter up with the bags loaded rather than have a back up second baseman coming up.
