He's been hating on Heat all season long. Heat played on ABC quite a bit this year and every game he was hating on the Heat. But...he's no worse than Steve Kerr (when Heat were playing Chicago) and Reggie Miller (when Heat were playing Pacers). It's been annoying to hear such biased commentary for last two post-seasons.


Maybe it is because the Heat have that talent and they don't stay focused or let a Diaw guard the best player ever...honestly, Heat are frustrating to watch because they b***h out a lot.

Lol ok - you sound bitter from last night. Your team choked with the trophy getting rolled out and you're calling out another team for not staying focused? Funny.

Regardless of that...they are commentators. Do your job. You can't be biased against a team.

Every team complains... Relatively speaking, I like how the refs let both teams play for the most part. Keep your whistles in your pocket. No technicals and not too many fouls called.
Since it seems as if LBJ's "legacy" hinges on every playoff game, does this improve it? The run in the 4th when his team was down by 10? Give the dude his due credit.
if the W-L-W-L pattern continues, then the spurs should win. Manu is due for a great game and why not better than game 7 in Miami.

Manu had his great game. Dude is old and washed up. SA has to hit some more threes to win. Neal and Greene went on an unsustainable run early in the series, IMO.

Its just annoying when you see Lebron drive and doesn't get the call and sits there trying to feel sorry for himself while the spurs are already going back down court. A superstar can't always depend on the refs.

Yeah, that is super annoying. Shut the hell up and keep playing, its the finals. I can't stand when Wade or Lebron does that b**ch s**t.

What a game. Lebron carried his team back. He made some key mistakes, but s**t what a run. The 4th quarter is when he needed to come thru and he did. Also, the team looked the best when Wade was on the bench and LBJ was back in Cleveland. They looked a lot different when he came back with about four minutes left. Like Van Gundy said, that was a tough choice for Spols. Either way, LBJ carried his team back single handedly. Funny that people are hating on his f**kin triple double in the finals. My god man. The standard he is held to is ridiculous. Also, do people even care about defense? His D was outstanding.

I agree. His triple double and his D. His 4th quarter and overtime. Yes Ray Allen hit a key shot. Yes Lebron had some costly turnover. But man they were down 10. The run he put together in the 4th and OT was almost all Lebron. It's just utterly rediculous to hate on him after this one. No way they win that game without Lebron.

Yes, the standard being applied to Lebron James is ridiculous. He's 28...he's in his prime, his legacy is not on the line.

Anyway, he did make couple of mistakes at crucial time, but he made tons of plays at the crucial time too. I'd rate that 4th quarter performance very high for Lebron. As other reporters who were at the game mentioned, Lebron was completely gassed when the clock hit 6 minutes in the 4th quarter. He hadn't taken a break in the 2nd half and was guarding Parker for most of the game and also great on weak-side defensive help.

And, it seems like no one is even talkin' about defense. He was on Parker for major part of the game and Parker hit one jump-shot on him (for the entire game)...that incredible 3 pt shot late in the game that was defended as well as it could have been.

...also huge credit to Chris Bosh. Those two blocks on Parker and Green, and the rebound and pass to Ray Allen. What a sick block on Green!

According to the media, and the haters, Lebron's legacy is alwasy on the line. People forget his playoff run last year. What he did in the elimination game in Boston last year should do a lot for his legacy, but I guess it doesn't.

Lebron did make some key mistakes, but he was the sole reason the Heat were even back in the game. That block on Duncan was amazing. But, if the Heat lose game 7 nothing he did will matter. Its not fair, but that's how it is.

Also, his numbers in elimination games are crazy good.... especially for a choke artist.

Yeup...lose game 7 and this means nothing. It is what it is.

In 12 career playoff elimination games, LeBron James is averaging 31.5 PPG, still the highest average in NBA history.

The Heat fanbase has always been notoriously s**tty.
If you can't hit a wide open jumper with guys playing 5-10 feet off you, your not even I'm the same sentence as any major star player. Not saying he's not the best player in the league but as far as Kobe, MJ, Bird and the likes.

It's just Florida. I saw empty stadium when Tampa Bay Rays made it to the playoffs last year. Florida fans are not really fans.
