Jordan Throws a Little Deserved Ridicule at Lebron

It’s about time.

I tire of Lebron.  Dude acts like he deserves accolades and deserves to be respected and loved.

WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP LEBRON!

Then you can have your commercial and say that you’ve “been here before.”

Until then, you’re just a wannabe.

Sorry.

Some argue that Lebron is better than Kobe.  I’d argue that Kobe has 5 rings.  I’m not the biggest Kobe fan on the planet.  He has, however, earned his status with action.  He doesn’t just run his mouth.

Enough with the excuses.  Show us something ‘Bron.  Show us.

I love that you show my Cats the love.  That said, do something besides whining.

“He’ll never be Jordan,” Barkley told 790 The Ticket in Miami earlier in the week. “This clearly takes him out of the conversation. He can win as much as he wants to.

“There would have been something honorable about staying in Cleveland and trying to win it as ‘The Man’ … LeBron, if he would’ve in Cleveland, and if he could’ve got a championship there, it would have been over the top for his legacy, just one in Cleveland. No matter how many he wins in Miami, it clearly is Dwyane Wade’s team.”

Lebron James: The King and his petty fiefdom…

Jordan Crawford the Indiana swingman threw down on King James yesterday.  He’ll be an instant legend in the sports world.  The problem, though, is that James thinks he’s too big to be shown up in such a manner.  Like his temper tantrum after being defeated in the NBA Playoffs.  Where James stormed off like a tempestuous child.  James didn’t care for being shown up by a mere college baller.

After the dunk, James immediately called over the Nike rep who was on hand at his Basketball camp and ordered that all video of the moment be confiscated.

I think the press should sue James.

Seems a bit unAmerican for James to demand that the press hand over the video.  God forbid that James be humiliated by a mere collegiate athlete.  Especially one who played on an Indiana team that went sub .500 last year.

James plays a good game and tries to put out an image that has good guy written all over it.  This latest move is straight out of Chairman Mao’s handbook.

Bad call James.  Everyone knows it happened.  Take your lumps like the rest of the world.  You’d look far better to the masses if you allowed us a peak into your human side.

Even worse call by the Nike reps who confiscated the video.

Had I been there, I’d have declined the offer to hand over the video.

There won’t be a lawsuit because that will further limit coverage of James.  If he can be this petty, I’m sure that he’ll be blackballing any Journalist or media folks who cross his Highness.

Extremely poor sportsmanship.  I’ve been slowly losing respect for James.  This simply takes me a step further from admiration of the guy.  He’s human.  As are we all.  There’s no shame in that revelation.

USA Basketball takes Gold!

Team USA celebrates the Gold

Team USA celebrates the Gold

Team USA takes Basketball Gold in a 118 – 107 win over Spain.

I sat and watched the game live in Herat, Afghanistan.  I was in the Dining Facility with about 100 other American personnel.  There were also 5 to 10 Spaniards in the room with us.  I didn’t realize this  until Pau Gasol made a play.  I and the other Americans screamed “ARRRRRGH!!!”  And a few other expletives that I won’t type here.  The Spaniards applauded.  Every American in the room turned towards the applause with malice in our eyes.  lol  Being intent on the game, we had not noticed the Spaniards enter the room.   After the initial shock, a couple of us laughed and returned our attention to the game.

It’s always a special experience watching momentous games such as this in remote corners of the earth with fellow Americans.  Back in the States.  Everyone is American.  It’s all taken for granted.  This victory was made all the more special for me having watched it in Afghanistan.  I can’t explain it.  I just feel it more.

America reclaims it’s rightful place in Olympic Basketball.  International Basketball. It was a game decided in the last minutes. Team USA was never down.  But the Spaniards pulled to within 2 with a little less than 3 minutes remaining.  Team USA started to act a little frazzled.  Anger surfaced.  They recovered quickly and retook the lead.

Navarro, the Gasol brothers and Ricky Rubio, the 17 year old future pro, were pulling out all stops.  Fernandez seemed unstoppable at times.  Dunking on Dwight Howard and showing no signs of quit or surrender.  He eventually fouled out defending Kobe Bryant after sizzling Team USA for 22 points.  That shot of him dunking on Howard will be shown as an Olympic highlight for the nest 100 years.  It was that good.

It was a great game.  The Spanish Team acquitted itself nicely.  Played hard and played well.  They played to win.  But fell short.  Team USA held on.  Took the lead back to Ten and kept it there.  Dwayne Wade was the high scoring genius with 27 points.  Kobe Bryant and Lebron James were equally stars of the game for the USA.  Tayshaun Prince even got some valuable playing time in there over the more heralded Carlos Boozer.

AND IT WAS A GREAT GAME! Well Played and hard fought.

Team USA 2008 will be remembered as the team that brought the Gold back to America.  In Basketball, the Gold belongs in America.  It’s our game.  James Naismith invented it.  Our people perfected it.  It’s THE American game.  More so even than Baseball.  Jerry Colangelo deserves a good deal of credit for the redemption of USA Basketball.  He was the architect of this Team USA.  Coach K and the Boys deserve equal credit.  After all, it is a team sport.  They earned this Gold Medal over the course of last four years of work.  The USA finally played as a team in the Olympics.  And it paid off in Olympic GOLD!

Congratulations Team USA.  Well played.  The Basketball Gold is once more where it belongs.  In America.

They lived up to the legacy of these guys.
