    Who cares? He's useless. If Cavs lose, LeBron gets blamed with or without Love.

    Boston should win game 7, but I've seen enough of Lebron not to bet against him..

    Besides, if the Cavs lose, the team will just Blame Love again.

    No, they will blame LeBron. You honestly think the media would blame Love? He's got nothing to do with it. He's fallen off so much as a player in the playoffs that he's irrelevant at this point. And the sad part is, Cleveland Cavailers know that as well. When Love was on the floor, only George Hill went to help. Every other Cleveland Cavailers player stood there and just watched. They have no faith in Love. Nor should they. They are better off starting Jeff Green as he brings in more athleticism to at least stay in front/contest shots at the rim. Love doesn't contest anything. He stands in front of his player like that's sufficient defense.

    yep... that makes sense

    Glad they will finally start the better player so they can't use the excuse of "if we only had started Jeff Green"

    Love is out for Game 7. And Celtics are -2 in most books. I think that helps the Cavs more, Celtics were going at Love and making Cavs D scramble. But now the Cavs role players need to step up more, someone will have to give a solid 14-19pts with good efficiency, either Korver, Hill, JR having one of those games, Green having the game of his life or Clarkson.

    **** I honestly don't know if this helps the Cavs with Lue coaching.

    As I said in the gamethread I honestly don't know if this hurts more or help the Cavs. On one side, Celtics were attacking the Love weak defense and any matchup was a mismatch for him (either defending Horford or smaller/quicker guys) and in the other side the Cavs lose a 3pt guy that can space the floor. I'd say it helps them but with Lue coaching IDK man.

    I think the best way is to play Korver in the Starting 5.

    Hill
    JR
    Korver
    Lebron
    TT

    Maybe Brad counters with sitting Baynes and putting Morris, or he can go big. We'll see.

The BEST player in the NBA in his fifteenth season is NEVER injured and hasn't been for his entire career. When will we ever see something like that again? He's a physical specimen of the likes that has to be tested and duplicated in a laboratory. If Aliens invaded Earth, give me LeBron James to defend us. David Griffin said he once saw LeBron James ankle bone hit the hardwood floor when he fell. LeBron James tightened his shoes and never came out of the game. This guy is the real life Black Panther.

    Banging with other huge frames. There's a reason bron doesn't stick to his bread and butter post game, it's effing exhausting. Bigs have to run further down i think too

    Flashy Relax, I'm joking.

    I was referring to that Thunder game when he had to leave early, and the entire team decided to **** on him, you know because he was single-handily responsible for giving up 148 points.

    I agree that Lebron will get the flack if they lose from some narrative (How can he lose to a team without their two all-stars) or he'll be glorified from some other narrative (E.g. He's and his GOAT like play is the only reason that this team was able to force his way out of the conference)

    I was always amazed when LeBron ran the length of the floor to plaster a ball against the glass... It was like a hunt for him... In game 5 when Rozier slammed it and Lebron didn't make an attempt to plaster it, it became a little talk among sport shows...

    So what does he do...??? He makes it up by running the length of the court for an easy lay-up, seems to then give Rozier a headstart and then hunts Rozier down and smacks the layup out of bounds...

    Funny thing was Marv Albert called Green for that block and then corrected himself... I'm sure in game 7, LeBron will make sure Albert doesn't ever mistake him for Jeff Green ever again...

    Lmao bro relax please. I know youíre in your 20ís and grew up with Bron but MJ..... this is why I donít like discussing GOAT etc talk, these are All-Time Greats, these Eras are different so are these all time great players.


    Lebron is playing FANTASTIC basketball though, being my mid 30ís I got to watch MJ/ Late Magic very much but Lebron looks like he has 3 more dominant years left. He could really excel his career if he won for a franchise like the Lakers? Damn imagine the hype, all the Lakers fans coming around to actually liking bron lmfao that **** would be hilarious.
