Probably because haslem was the only other bench player helping the team win. Mike Miller and Shawn Battier are useless fools who can't hit a open shot to save their life

Wade scored 30 and played the best he could've possibly played? Well, after witnessing what happened last night, 30points ISN'T the best he could've possibly played.

Lebron is averaging 29-9-6 (50% FG) so far in the playoffs. Seems like he is playing better than anyone else in the playoffs at the moment.

Granted he shredded all the way up through the ECF last year and then had a bad finals and everyone piled on.

Lebron gets a pass this year for the reasons below

1. No Chris Bosh
2. Spurs are too good

Lebron didn't get a pass last year when Bosh brought his F-game to the finals and Dirk, Terry and others went ape-shat from 3-pt. range.

Lebron's B- play in the finals got him called all kinds of things despite dominating play up through the ECF.

There is essentially no "pass" for lebron until he wins a championship, it's really that simple. Is it fair? Maybe not, but it's reality.

He still has to win a title at some point but not this year because any NBA fan knows that the Heat are not good enough to challenge the Spurs without Bosh in the NBA Finals. It would have beeen tough with Chris Bosh against the Spurs so you know they have no shot now which is why Lebron won't get a lot of heat this year for not winning it all.

As long as he maintains 25 or more each game he will not be judged if they lose to the Spurs

I'm sure "The Decision" is still sore to a number of fans, whom would like nothing more than to see him fail again. I used to be among that crowd, until the Lakers usurped him to become the most evil in the league.

Lebron gets no pass. Look at who he had to beat. The Indiana Pacers. Enough said! A iguadala led Philly team..lol. Can you name two stars on that team. Not starters, but stars. They played a beat up Knicks team. They played an overrated (no go to guy) Indiana team. And they are about to beat an old, beat up Boston team. Their best defender against Wade out. Paul Pierce not playing like Paul Pierce of a few years back. Ray Allen (we all know he's still hurt) could't hit a free throw to save his life. When have the Heat had it so easy? But this is where it will all backfire. While Lebron can posture like he is the man now against this over the hill aging and with plenty of injuries Celtics team, he is going to run up against a wall when they play the Spurs. Their easy ride to the finals will ultimately hurt them. Not that I think they would have won anyway. They are going to run into an even more resilient Spurs team who are too deep. So gloat now Lebron, because your free coast ride to the finals is over once you reach them..I want to see how he gloats (like he did near Kevin Garnett) when they face the Spurs. Barring any injuries from the Spurs-it's a wrap. But no need to worry, because you have Bosh to blame. Although, I don't think Bosh would have mattered. The Spurs so far (and this is the old eye test) just look like the best team in basketball. I mean seriously. Miami was down at one point to Indiana (who has absolutely no interior game-Sorry Roy, I like ya, but your inside game isn't ready yet) 2-1. There's no excuse for that. And Boston is just too old and "unhealthy" right now. I think the Boston team we saw win it three years ago would have wiped this team up. I say this, because there was a defense that team played that I haven't seen played since. Outreached arms, flowing together, every shot challenged. I haven't seen them play that way since that year they beat the Lakers. That team would have beat this years Miami's team.

He gets a pass because every NBA fan with 20/20 vision can see the Spurs are going to win the title. No one felt that way about the 2011 Mavs which is why Lebron got a lot of Heat after they lost the Finals. Last year was the best opportunity for Lebron to win a ring because that Mavs team was no where close as good to the 2012 Spurs team.
