Such an awesome moment for a sports fan. Lebron is always going to have a cloud hanging over him until he wins the big one. Countless others have had to deal with it, some won, some didn't, but I'm hard pressed to think of another athlete in a similar situation who was as hated as Lebron James. When a Peyton Manning or a Steve Yzerman finally got the monkey off their back, a majority were happy to see it happen, with James it's the opposite, people are actively rooting for it not to happen.

Honestly, James Reimer is closer to King James than Lebron ever will be. This guy has some serious attitude problems.

Yes Lebron, today you woke up as Lebron, the same Lebron you were when you woke up yesterday. No Rings. No Championships. That's your problem.

Honestly, If I am building a team I'd take Wade over Lebron any day.

So, they didn't win. Can we stop crying about them now and making them matter. Who cares. They will win eventually, and the Raptors should be all that matters.

I hope if we do move up it is only for Irving. Otherwise, give Walker a shot. He believes he can be a true PG, but was relied upon to provide most of his teams offense.

If not I'd like Kanter, or Valanciunas. I don't want AB as our C, maybe a year at PF could show something better from him. Davis isn't ready yet, IMO.

Dallas Mavericks traded Robert Traylor to the Milwaukee Bucks for the rights to Dirk Nowitzki and Pat Garrity.

At least the Hornets got Divac out of the deal?

Could not have put it into context any better.

Lebron James is convinced he's accomplished everything and that's his problem. His accomplishments are not those which place him near the truly great players. That may change with maturity.

On a side note, if they win next year i'm still calling a line from one of the big three saying "No on thought we could do this man", to which we'll all respond "?....we ALL thought you would do it. We just can't believe you choked enough to make it take this long."

The reason Lebron sucked was because he didn't show up in the 4th quarter. That was the difference. Dirk and Terry showed more passion to win then the three AM-EGOS.

Bosh crying just show you that these guys are human, but like I said, people hate "EGO" and this three are an example of that.

Btw, Dan Gilbert, you're a loser!

Huh? Reimer is 'good' but not even close to Lebron. James is a spoiled brat, him and Wade acted like fools in the pre interviews.

umm... Nets have Lopez, you know one of the better centers in the league who will be a stud in a few years.

Howard on the Raptors would be pretty awesome.

I'll guess Celtics.

OKC has more to worry about then Howard. They need to figure out what to do with Westbrook / Durant. They weren't the happiest team after their playoffs.

I'm hoping Heat let Spoelstra go so the Raptors can hire him.

I hope Bryan takes his time with the coach. I'm not intrigued by Lawrence Frank and Dwane Casey. They'll be okay, but I'd rather Bryan does his due dilligence.

Yeah the reason why the Heat lost is cause Spoelstra got out-coached by Rick.. He had a solid season, but I'd rather get some one with a better track record.

Raptors discussion? This isn't the Dallas Mavs thread?

I hope they draft Walker.

Package Westbrook with picks and/or Sefolosha for CP3.

Durant-Howard-Paul-Harden-Ibaka...boom. Your next dynasty.

Spo is actually a fine young coach. People sometimes forget that he managed to take the Heat to two straight playoff appearances with a roster that many people wrote of as a non playoff team. His second year where he went 47-35 was very impressive and unexpected. He got outcoached by Carlisle, with the zone D and not really having an answer to the rotation switch up by Carlisle, but so would about another 25 coaches in the league.

Only problem I see with Spo in Miami is that his personality and ego cannot match that of James and Wade. They need a coach who has just as big of a personality to show everyone he's at the helm, most likely a more veteran coach, someone that demands respect. I think Spo would be great on a young team with lesser expectations. He's young, and made some mistakes that showed it, but he's still a fine coach by all means.

No way, he's not a true PG.

Either draft Kantar or Valanciunas and if you really want a PG, buy a late 1st or a 2nd(there is always some team willing to take cash) and draft Reggie Jackson or Shelvin Mack.

Funny story, apparently Kevin Love from the T-Wolves works out with Westbrook alot, and there have been rumors he would want to play for them.



Also, Spo is actually a pretty good coach. You could do worse imo.

Right.

Spoelstra is a very good coach. Heat lost because they didn't have Dirk and Bosh just couldn't contain him during the last quarter. Top that off with the zone D Hanta Yo is talking about, and the fact that Mavs had Marion, Kidd, Stevenson and Chandler - all very capable defenders at their position, so you can make a case that Mavs actually won because of their roster, rather than poor coaching by Spoelstra.

Spoelstra is regarded as a great players coach with a sound knowledge in the Xs and Os part of the game as well. He's a very bright coach, which is why Riley picked up as the coach right after he was their video coach.
