Just heard this on Jim Rome this morning. In last nights post game interview with David Aldridge Lebron dropped the 3rd person reference telling DA that "Lebron can't do it all by himself"

Then Ernie and Kenny picked up on it:

Ernie saying.. "Ernie is going to take us to a graphic"

Kenny Saying: "Kenny's here"

Heres the link: (video's on the right panel) "Lebron Post - Game Interview"

But in all seriousness who does that? "Lebron can't do it all by himself".. You have to have a huuuuge EGO to drop the 3rd person reference..especially in a live interview. I love Bron's game but damm,

bucsfan thinks this is ridiculous, bucsfan thinks lebron a cocky *******

seriously though, thats bad to say about the rest of your team, how would that make you feel if you were on a team and somebody else said "i cant do it be myself", especially referring to themselves in the 3rd person, i would say **** you lebron!

Lol I wish someone had the balls to say that on his team, instead they might just go out and buy him a rolls-royce or something. :rolleyes:

Yeah that's definitely an ego issue. I hate when people refer to themselves in the 3rd person but to add what he said on top of that says volumes. I'd be pissed if my teammate said that.

For as much as I respect Bron's game (I'm a die hard Celtics fan) I can not even stand looking at him. He is such a cocky arrogant *****. Also, did anyone notice his face after the refs called the travel on him in last nights game, it was hilarious.

Young and Stupid

Ricky thinks LeBron is right. Ricky couldn't do it by himself, Ricky couldn't score all the runs, so Ricky took Roids'. Ricky thinks LeBron might leave causing Cleveland to turn into a warzone, Ricky thinks the Cavs need more than Jamison to make LeBron stay. Today I am the greatest -- thank you.

shmontaine thinks that lebron needs to look at his roster and recognize lebron's not alone and that's no longer an excuse for failure... lebron needs to start think about the cavs as A TEAM... and yeah, he could've easily said 'i' without an issue, but he's making headlines with this 3rd person crap.. so, there u go...

Goodness gracious. At this point in time, if LeBron helped an old lady cross the street, he'd probably be roasted by everyone for being a selfish glory hog. He was asked a question about how the Cavs keep everyone involved, and he replied with this:

"Well we've got a big picture here David, and that's to win an NBA Championship and you can't do it just by one guy, LeBron can't do it by himself and the guy all the way down to the 15th can't do it by himself. We have to understand that it's a team concept and we need everybody and everybody needs to stay ready".

Just exactly what else was he supposed to say there?

:clap: He's acknowledging the fact that you can't be selfish and need to win as a team to win a title. A lesson I'm assuming he learned very well after the Orlando series last year. I really doubt anyone on the Cavs actually took any offense to that.

lol i love the double standard here. he goes out to say he can't do it by himself and then you bash him for using the third person.

since the OP took things out of context im gonna type out the whole thing he said:
"We got a big picture here Dave and that's to win an NBA Championship. You can't do it by just one guy. LeBron can't do it by himself and the guy all the way down to the fifteenth guy can't do it by himself and we gotta understand it's a team concept and we need everybody. Everybody has to stay ready."

OP you would be a disgrace to journalism if you ever got into. Just because you don't like him doesn't mean you need to take things out of context. There's plenty of material out there for your hate.

2005 Knicks had 4 all stars

Stephon Marbury
Steve Francis
Anfernee Hardaway
Antonio Davis

Having all stars don't really mean much and Lebron-less Cavs would be CONSIDERABLY EASIER to play against. After their bread and butter play of giving Lebron the ball up top to pass, shoot, or drive won't work that well (if at all) with say Jamario Moon or Mo Williams.

wow i used to be very supportive of lebron but the more and more i hear him talk the more i hate him.

i remember i was watching a Thunder Cavs game and B.J Mullens fouled him and for some reason the mic was on lebron and when he was shooting his freethrows he kept looking over to Mullens and you could here him clearly say "***** you got a long way to go before you go hackin me like that!" then he after he made his freethrow he started nodding at B.J mouthing the words "you just a *****" as he walked down the court.


what a tool bag. its hard to respect a man who's just an *******. be humble fool!

or at least do what kobe does. Kobe knows he's great, and he knows he's an *******, but he keeps that to himself most of the time or puts on a fake smile. Lebron is just an ***.

Its not that.. I get the intent.

Its the 3rd person reference that I take issue with.

You should never refer to yourself as Lebron if your first name also happens to be Lebron.

Thats my opnion and I m certainly entiled to it. Lebron is the best player in the game right now. But that EGO makes it hard to actually Root for the guy and could casue issues.

Then he needs to stop holding onto the ball for 18-20 seconds every possession and let other guys run the offense and make plays. If other guys only get to see the ball for 4-6 seconds a possession, how much can they realistically do?

No im the furthest thing from a hater you'll find here.

Lebrons statement is not being taken out of context at all. The statement is irrelevant to the point here.

I get the whole we need to win as a team argument. Of course. and I agree with what Lebron said.

The fact that Lebron casually used his own first name "Lebron" to refer to himself. He said "Lebron can't do it all by Himself". That is what I take issue with.

Instead of saying "I cant do it all by myself" like most mere mortals would.. He referred to himself as Lebron. I disagree with refering to one self in the 3rd person. (Unless youre trying to be funny) Its my pet peeve actually.

If you say so man. It still appears you're going out of your way to take issue with him, especially when you look at what he was saying in its entirety. He was naming other teammates names so to include his own is not that shocking.

You act is if he just came completely out of left field and started referring to himself third person like "Lebron had a good game tonight. Lebrons shot started falling later in the game, Lebron enjoys his new teammate!.... etc"

Hahahaha He did come from left field tho! He named no one else on the team excpet for Lebron and the 15th man.. Which also implies some things.. But he didnt say Mo or Shaq ... At least in the context of that statement.

I didnt go out of my way at all. Jim Rome was talking about it this morning so thats where I first heard what went down. Rome started it!

Anyway im over it at this point.. It just shows dudes ego. It doesnt take away from his game at all. Still an amazing player

Ok, I didn't say anything before because I figured you were playing around, but its obvious now that you're serious.

Listen - LeBron was joking. He was poking fun at all the analysts who say that "LeBron can't do it by himself." LeBron is a smart guy and he hears everything that the media says about him, he was just having fun. You've never heard person A say "Yeah, Person B is blank" then Person B coming back at a later time and saying the same thing (which would result in Person B referring to him/herself in the third-person).

Seriously - relax, yes LeBron has a huge ego, but that comes along with his ability to play basketball at such a high level. Kobe has a huge ego, MJ had (has) a huge ego, Wilt had a huge ego. Should I keep going?

A great man once said "LeBron makes otherwise sensible men act like jealous women" why can't we just embrace LeBron's greatness, why do we have to hate?

Yes he confiscated a tape of himself getting dunked on because LeBron has never been embarrassed and LeBron doesn't know how to deal with getting embarrassed. Yes he messed up, yes he has a big ego, yes he is full of himself and yes he is better than Kobe. Not everybody is perfect, his flaws are a result of his strengths. GET OFF HIS DI**.

Sorry - been holding that back for a while.

Well we've got a big picture here, David, and thats to win an NBA Championship. And you can't do it by just one guy. Lebron can't do it by himself, and the guy all the way down to the 15th guy can't do it by himself. We have to understand that its a team concept. We need everybody, everybody has to stay ready.

This thread is stupid. You picked off one sentence in the middle of a paragraph talking entirely about team-first attitude.

Edit: I don't care if he used the third person, it really doesn't matter at all.

Yea But I do..It bothers me. So we disagree.

Such is life..Its ok to disagree without calling people stupid etc.

How fun would it be if we all shared the same opinion.

Yeah that's definitely an ego issue. I hate when people refer to themselves in the 3rd person but to add what he said on top of that says volumes. I'd be pissed if my teammate said that.

I think you missed the second part of his statement when he also said that the 15th man can't do it all by himself either. He was trying to reiterate the fact that basketball is a team game. He along with the rest of the world knows that he is the best player on the team and I don't think his comments were egotistical or trying to suggest he doesn't have help; he was just saying that everyone has to step up on the Cavs in order for them to have a chance to beat quality teams. If you're going to rip the guy take the entire conversation into context.

TheHoopsProphet cant help but wonder, what other athletes dropped the 3rd person? I know Karl Malone used to do it, even with Shaq's ego I don't he's ever done it.

Maybe Lebron is hinting to Bosh that he needs his help.

Duh....we already knew Lebron was a tool.

I wonder if Nike is going to destroy the tape of this like they did when he got dunked on by a college player. :eyebrow:

I hate Lebron. Don't care about Kobe. "Lebron can't do it by himself" What a cool guy. They will get tagged in the playoffs. Hopefully by Denver (don't laugh, it could happen). The people defending him are hilarious :love:

wow i used to be very supportive of lebron but the more and more i hear him talk the more i hate him.

i remember i was watching a Thunder Cavs game and B.J Mullens fouled him and for some reason the mic was on lebron and when he was shooting his freethrows he kept looking over to Mullens and you could here him clearly say "***** you got a long way to go before you go hackin me like that!" then he after he made his freethrow he started nodding at B.J mouthing the words "you just a *****" as he walked down the court.


what a tool bag. its hard to respect a man who's just an *******. be humble fool!

or at least do what kobe does. Kobe knows he's great, and he knows he's an *******, but he keeps that to himself most of the time or puts on a fake smile. Lebron is just an ***.

I heard that is Jordan talked to his teammates at practice, and they hated him for it.
Who cares how he talks to BJ mullens. Doesn't Shaq always talk down to other players. Speaking of Shaq, why can he have 9 nicknames for himself, but nobody cares, but Lebron calls himself Lebron and everybody goes crazy. If you hate LEBRON for talking about himself in third person, you probably already hated him. Its basketball, who cares about his manners and cocky-ness.

This is a dumb thread because the fool that started completley miss LEBRON'S point. It was a great post game interview.

Its not that.. I get the intent.

Its the 3rd person reference that I take issue with.

You should never refer to yourself as Lebron if your first name also happens to be Lebron.

Thats my opnion and I m certainly entiled to it. Lebron is the best player in the game right now. But that EGO makes it hard to actually Root for the guy and could casue issues.



You're right, using 3rd person isn't exactly the most humble way to go about things but let's all face it....if we were Bron we'd be that cocky too lol and anyone in here that says they wouldn't is a liar

Lebron is the greatest? It will go Kobe, Lebron (for about 5 minutes), then Durant which will happen around 2012. No one hates his game. They hate his personality. Unless he gets a better jumpshot and gets better in late game situations he''ll get passed up by Durant. It will happen. Lebron is the better athlete for sure, but Durant will be an offensive predator by next season. Lebron is a better defender, Durant is a better basketball player and is humble.

First off, in what part of my post did I say Bron was the greatest? I think he's been the best in the league the last two years, sure, but not once in the post you quoted did I say he was the greatest. And as for Durant? Love the kid's game and can't wait to see him develop as he gets older, the LBJ-Durantula debate will be a good one some day...Durant will get to that level...he's not there yet though...almost.

For the most part this has turned into a joke thread. The actual debate going on isn't a terribly important basketball one. I'm going to shut this one down.
