"....Not 2.....not 3....not 4," Lebron James said to a deliriously happy crowd in Miami last summer, talking about how many NBA Championships he was going to win, now that he was teamed up with his buddy Dwane Wade.
"not 5....not 6..." he exclaimed as the crowd roared louder with each arrogant boast,
"not 7....not 8....not 9," he foolishly spouted, a definite jab at Michael Jordan and the 6 Championship rings he has collected, and with whom he is constantly compared, for reasons I know not of.
This made for TV drama otherwise know as the "The Big Three" was a bust.
Lebron orchestrated this unprecedented deal a year ago, that had him joining two other stars, Dwane Wade and Chris Bosch in Miami, in hopes of winning a Championship....or 9, as he said.
"The Big Three" thought this would be a slam dunk.
What it turned out to be was an air ball.
When Larry Bird, a true champion, was asked, if he would ever think of getting together with 2 other of the leagues best players, to form a team in hopes of winning a championship, like Lebron did, he replied, "I wanted to play AGAINST the best players, not WITH them."
This talk in the media a few weeks ago of "King James" being the best player in the league?
Sorry Lebron lovers. He's not even the best player on his team.
Lebron decided last July, in a 1 hour over the top, arrogant television special titled, "THE DECISION", that he was going to leave his present team in Cleveland and "...take my skills to South Beach." ( I watched that 1 hour Lebron circus, and that's one hour of my life I'll never get back.)
Evidently, the Dallas Mavericks took THEIR skills to South Beach last night,
and opened a can of woop-ass on Lebron and his 2 amigos.
The Dallas Mavericks are the NBA Champions.
Lebron wants to "Be like Mike".
Yeah right...so do I.
