It's not a matter of winning it by yourself. Obviously to win you need a capable supporting cast.
It's a matter of Lebron teaming up with a player (Dwyane Wade) who is the second best player in the NBA.
To me, this would be the equivalent of Michael Jordan teaming up with Magic Johnson because he couldn't beat the Pistons in 1990.
Karl Malone or Charles Barkley deciding to join the Bulls because they couldn't beat them.
It's a pathetic cop-out which diminishes Lebron's legacy.
But it's all irrelevant now. Lebron legacy is already destroyed. Twenty years from now, people will say, "Lebron won four championships, but he couldn't win any without Dwyane Wade"
LOL, no. Seriously crzy? That isn't even close.
It's either Wade, Durant, Rose, Howard, it doesn't matter.
The point is, Lebron choose the easiest path to success because he's a coward. With Lebron, regardless of his future accomplishments, he will always be a disappointment.
Even though he's the best player in the NBA, he is still a player who should be better than he is now. His free throw shooting is mediocre, his jumper is mediocre, and his post game is pathetic.
It's unfortunate, because Lebron is the most awe-inspiring physical specimen anyone has ever seen on the basketball court.
But he lacks the competitive drive of a Jordan or Kobe. He is an athlete who is more concerned with being a global icon, and taking the easy road toward success.
And that's why Lebron, no matter how many rings he wins, will always be a disappointment.
