View Full Version : The King, The Decision, The Parade, The Celebration

Why does Lebron James and the Heat keep putting a huge target on their back?

It started from the get go for Lebron James. Yet to prove anything other than he is a freakish talent, with all the skills a young man could ask for, Lebron James crowned himself "The King". Strike one Lebron. You see MJ and Kobe running around calling themselves the KING. Didn't think so?

Than it was the Decision. Lebron James holds a press conference on national prime time TV, only to rip the heart out of some of the most loyal fans in the nation. He went from home town hero, to national super villain over night.

But slapping Ohio in the face wasn't enough, so Lebron, Wade, and Bosh decided they would throw a Preseason party, celebrating their indefinite championships to come. This little celebration helped add some fuel to the burning fire that Lebron keeps building on. Now not only did Ohio fans and the Cleveland organization hate Lebron and everything he stood for, but so did virtually every other organization in the league. And instead of coming out and being humble about their new beginning, and saying we haven't proven anything yet, they bought into the hype and embraced their role as a super villain.

Now they get to the playoffs as only the 2 seed, and it seemed like the pressure was finally off there backs. Finally all eyes were on Chicago and their MVP, Coach of the Year, Number 1 Seed, and Executive of the Year. Chicago could have bought into all that, but instead they countered all there hype, with humble responses. The Bulls never got complacent. They never got satisfied. They are just staying the course. Staying focused. They are going out there and letting their play do the talking.

So with the pressure fading from the Heat, what do they do? They throw a celebration after defeating the Celtics in the SEMI-FINALS. Not the Conference Finals, and not the NBA Finals, but the SEMI-FINALS. They acted like the whole season was built upon defeating the Celtics who knocked them out last year. But wait a second. The Celtics didn't knock off the Heat. They didn't knock off Wade and Bosh. They knocked off a Cleveland team led by none other than Lebron James. So what is Lebron trying to say? That he is the team, and that he finally got past the ghost of the Celtics past? What did they really prove? They beat a team that was vastly fading, and aging. They beat a one armed point guard. Was beating the Celtics really Celebration worthy? Weren't the Heat the Number 2 seed and the Celtics the 3? Isn't that what was supposed to happen? Why was this worthy of celebrating?

Well guess what Miami? You just placed the huge target back on your backs, and guess who was waiting in the wings, ready to hit the BULLSeye? The one and only Chicago Bulls. The Best team in the league. The Best Coach in the league. The Best Defense in the league. The MVP of the league. That same team that swept you into submission in the regular season. That same team that made you cry like a bunch of baby's.

And where were the Heat left after game one? Flustered, Battered, Demoralized, Panicked. The KING was left biting his nails just like he did when he pulled that quit job on Cleveland last year. Wade was busy getting posterized by our backup PF. Wade was left wondering why he took zero 4th quarter shots. They were left with a lot of unanswered question marks, and the only definitive answer they had was, "We knew what they could do". But do they know how to stop it?

And where were the Chicago Bulls left after Game 1? Right back where they started. They had all the right things to say to the reporters. They didn't crown themselves as the champs of the East. Instead they dodged all the praise, with how they can improve. They stayed their course just as they've done all year long. Instead of people hating them for being great players and a great team, people love them for being humble. They are a coaches dream, and a Premadonna's nightmare. They are writing the script exactly how a Hero's tale goes.

In the end, the Villain always flashes around his powers recklessly wreaking havoc and beating everything in his path. But for everything super villain there is a super hero who will take that villains best punch, and through hard work, heart, and determination, the Hero always prevails.

Only time will tell which team will take on which role.

They've taken on an us against the world mentality, while the Bulls remain "humble" because they wish to be the underdogs and can't live with the pressure. The Chicago Bulls are scared of the Miami Heat and are doing their best to not wake the sleeping giant.

Another thing being overlooked when it comes to the whole Celtics vs. the Heat, Cleveland, or whoever is, that Celtics team thrived on Tom Thib's defense. He's not their anymore. Yeah they had some carry over after being with Thib's for a few years, but they were not the same team they once were. A year older, the mastermind gone, Rondo's injury.

And please spare me that the Bulls are scared of the Heat. The Bulls know exactly what the Heat are going to throw at them, and we have the exact players needed to slow down Lebron and Wade, in Brewer and Deng. Not to mention, when they drove to the lane, that help D was sickening good yesterday, and it will continue to be. I'm just gonna keep watching this series, and enjoying the battle of Good vs. Evil, Heart vs. Skill, and hero vs. villain.

I agree that what I say can be looked at as the opposite of what the Bulls are doing, but I'm just a fan, I'm not the Bulls. I'm stating the facts. As a player I wouldn't talk about being great, I would prove it. The Heat talked about before they did it. The Bulls still havn't proven anything either, except that they are keeping there focus like a determined team should.

I honestly did think what your saying while writing this though, but it's not talking up the Bulls, or bashing the Heat. It's bashing Lebron for putting this target on his teams back. And he really did do that. I feel most bad for Wade, because Pre Lebron he was a looked at as a humble leader just as Rose was, and now he's stuck in the Lebron Villain trap.

Well than creep through my profile and see if I ever wanted Lebron. I bet you'll get your answer.

I don't care what you wanted. Just letting you know when you make your opinion a fact back it up with proofs. That's how it goes.

And what you wanted doesn't matter anyway. The Bulls wanted LeBron, Wade, and Bosh all three and finally they got Boozer as a consolation prize. This is a fact.

And I'll deserve it, but I never said the Bulls are going to win. I sure hope they do though. If the Heat win, props to them, they figured us out, but they have a lot of work to do.

Correction I did want Bosh as our 4 back than. But here is my Lebron proof and Wade proof.

"Rose/Wade/Deng/Bosh/Noah=Championship!!!!!

I also hate Lebron and would hate to have to cheer his punk *** on.

Wade is my favorite non bull in the entire NBA, and I'd love a One-Two chicago native punch on our roster. Wade will teach Rose heart, and Noah already has it. Hustle is contagious and we will be not only the most talented team in the NBA, but also the most energetic. Chicago Basketball would be a force to be reckoned with."

1. Wait for tomorrow or next game.
2. It's a Bulls homer (Aka every non Miami fan who hates us)

Liked most the post, but I'm kinda wish people would stop throwing this "Hero vs. Villian" crap that people keep referring to, this isn't a fictional story lol. It's not like the Bulls are all high and mighty. Remember Boozer basically turned his back on his word( Verbal agreement) he had with the Cavs and left for Utah. Had he remained there with Lebron (I remember a thread that discussed this), many of us felt that they would have won at least one title.

The celebration might have been a little premature, but teams do that. In the NHL, the Canucks knocked off the Blackhawks in the first round (who had eliminated them the past few years, but basically had to gut their team after winning the cup) they acted like they just won the cup lol.

These people are basketball players, nothing more, nothing less. Yes their decisions are sometimes asinine (Lebron's decision to have that show has got to be one of the dumbest moves in the history of sports IMO), but in the end they are doing what most of us would do; look out for what they feel is best for them.

Also, I remeber you guys trying to pry Bosh off our hands, but wouldn't b/c it would require you guys losing Noah (Was a good decision on your part since he's a good defensive center and you guys acquired Boozer.) I'm by no means a Heat fan, but I'm not going to call them villians for doing what many other teams were trying to do (Chicago, New York, New Jersey Clippers etc). What if New York or you guys were able to acquire them? I would bet that this celebration would still occur, and they would still run their mouths.

Whats unfortunate is that there will be some Heat/Bulls Bandwagoners going at it in this thread (and disgracing their respective fan bases), rather than discussing what the Heat have to do to rebound in game two (E.g Better shots, Wade/Lebron have to not mess up again), or what the Bulls have to do to ensure they don't lose home court advantage ( Boozer actually playing defense, or Rose has to limit the TOs).

If one thing is consistent, it is the fact that I am a fan of Heart, Hard Work, and so on. I hate flash, and I wouldn't have liked a parade if we got Lebron. I would have felt the same way, which is why did you have to add to the fuel of every team hating us. As it turned out, I'm glad we didn't get Lebron, Bosh probably would have been a little more consistent than Boozer, and Wade is who I wanted more than anyone.

:facepalm: People just don't understand. The introduction party for the Heat's big free agency acquisitions was to re-energize the Miami fan base, not gloat. If ESPN would have never covered it no one outside of Miami/Fl would have been aware of it therefore less attention = less fuel to the fire that is hate/envy. Why doesn't anyone blame ESPN? It baffles me that a man well within his rights to sign where ever he wants is vilified and persecuted for leaving a state/city that wouldn't have given a two fcks if he wasn't superb at putting a ball in a hoop. As for televising his decision, given the opportunity to do something no other free agent in sports history has ever done, everyone in here would have done it. Like c'mon. They didn't embrace the villain role by choice-- blogs, comments and threads like these place the labels. So what happens when you have one of the biggest sports figures viewed as Darth Vader, things like kneeling down to take in the moment and hugging your teammates are magnified and criticized. Seriously, this is the same Lebron who was dancing around and choreographing make believe photography celebrations with his teammates and the media/fans chuckled in amusement. Now whatever he does no matter how minute and harmless is deemed overboard and immature. Remember, the media dictates who the good guys and bad guys are--it makes for a great storyline and great ratings.

But why don't all these Heat threads go into the "Miami Heat," section...

It's been happening all year.. They celebrated like they won the Championship when they beat the friggin Celtics, who have been reeling all year.

The reason the Miami Heat have such a target on their backs is because they basically said they were going to win 7+ Championships.. I know it was supposed to re-energize the fanbase but the celebration was on National Television.. What makes me even sicker is that LeBron left from one of the most loyal fanbases to one of the worst(i'm not speaking for everyone, but alot of people.)

Comparing Lebron to Shaq is proving the OPs argument correct.

Shaq didn't fulfill even 75% of his potential, didn't start working hard outside of games until later into his career, and is considered by many to be at least somewhat of of a "headcase" or, at the very least, an egomaniac.

But hey, at least Shaq got a championship with Wade, so you got that.

I didn't hate the Heat either. Love Wade, still do. Little bitter he didn't do the right thing and go to his home town. I like the fact that he stayed with his original team, but I feel he only stayed because of circumstances of Lebron and Bosh coming, and I feel they had there big 3 planned for some time.

As for Lebron, I'm was born and raised in Youngstown, OH. My parents are from Gary, IN. I grew up an all Chicago fan surrounded by Pittsburgh and Cleveland fans, and had to listen to them talk about Lebron for so long. I always told them they won't win with him, and also that when they do lose he will bolt. I was right on with those predictions. But I feel for them now after seeing the way he did it. I told them the same thing I tell everyone on here. He is heartless, and he won't be loyal to Cleveland in the long run. They argued with me until the day it happened.

So what you're telling me is that you can't tell when people are being sarcastic. Not once did he guarantee anything, he was asked a question and responded according to how he was baited in. There's a difference between believing you can do something and guaranteeing you can do something and he believes they can win Championships. What team don't believe they can? And if they don't why are they still employed?

Wow, you want to talk about cocky and celebrating a victory. The bulls have won only 1 game out of a 7 game series. I'm not going to come out and say the Heat will comeback and win the series for sure, but it's far from over.

In reference to sweeping the Heat into submission, I think that is a little exaggerated. Yes, the Bulls won all three, but those 3 games were decided by a total of 8 points. They easily could have ended differently. Don't expect the rest of this series to go the way last nights game went, otherwise you might be disappointed.

Also, as far as celebrating the series win over Boston. Miami wasn't supposed to beat Boston, despite being the #2 seed. That was supposed to be the team that Miami wouldn't be able to beat. Maybe if the Bulls didn't play so unimpressively against far inferior opponents in the Pacers and Hawks they would have celebrated too.

Celtics beat Wade and the Heat last year, followed by James and the Cavs.

They've taken on an us against the world mentality, while the Bulls remain "humble" because they wish to be the underdogs and can't live with the pressure. The Chicago Bulls are scared of the Miami Heat and are doing their best to not wake the sleeping giant.

As far as the Bulls being scared of Miami, have they looked scare in any of the four games they have won against the Heat. Did Taj look scared when he dunked on Wade or stuffed Lebron. If anyone looked scared, it was Miami. The Bulls have shown all year that they can live with pressure. There is absolutely nothing they have done to show otherwise. Any time they had a big game and there was scrutiny and talk from the superbrains that they would not be able to compete with the better teams like the Celtics, Heat, Mavs, Lakers, and Spurs. They not only showed up, they won a good majority of those games.

I agree that the Heat will play better, but if you ask me DRose will have at least one or two games when he will totally dominate the game. He coasted last night, made his outside shots, but did not even have to exert that much energy.

Again we did something similar to this when we got Shaq, I seriously don't see the big deal here because they did it for Heat fans.

So Refresh my memory then? Is Miami the only team to have celebrations like this? Is that a knock against their fan base? To get the Heat fans to come out we have to throw a celebration for FA signings and put on a fashion show?

When we get a big name player we celebrate and throw a celebration for OUR FANS, I'm sure if next year we find a way to get Chris Paul or Dwight Howard we will do something similar.

Or can only have enough when the team is winning right? What about when the team isn't doing so hot?

So why make a big deal about it then? Problem is fans are going to talk and things will get out. I just feel no team needs to have a celebration like that before the season even starts. Hey if you wanna have something first home game, more power to ya. But to have it like that, you are asking for hate!

The fact of the matter is, the media/ESPN knows what they did/doing...Why only cover the Heat's dong sucking party, why not cover everyone else's also oh wait we don't know what type of celebratory party other teams had for their free agents because ESPN didn't cover it...

LOL heat fans. If you guys want/expect your team to be elite and on top year in and year out, Better get used to this type of scrutiny.

I was referring to the fact that no other team has ever had this type of "celebration" in the preseason.

Honest question: What did you expect?

I agree with you, but I think the Yankees have the same type of effect on people when it comes to hating (but a big difference, they've earned it). Not to that extent, but similar.

Because Lebron had his hour to shine. Maybe if he made the FA choice like all other FA's maybe ESPN wouldn't had been so inclinded to show it.

Agreed. But wherever Lebron would have gone he would have brought notoriety, because he chose Miami the hate tipped the scale...

It sucks, I know. It's no fun when people come up with any and everything they can to discredit your team but.... Comes with the territory.
The Heat need to win to slow down the Hate but it will never go away. Next people will just find ways to downplay the championship. (If it happens).

This shows its not just miami fans that say dumb things baiting in their posts.

how is what i said something stupid or baiting??? i was just agreeing with the OP and "LeDouche" is obviously a nickname for "the biggest douche in the universe" (john edwards is a close 2nd, imo).

and, btw, ive been calling him that since he was in Cleveland because im a Bulls fan who lives in Columbus, OH and ive had to deal with Lebron beating up on the Bulls for 6 years and i had to hear it from all the cavs fans.

There's probably a bunch of other examples of Lebron's douchieness that was left unwritten in the OP- like how Lebron handled the free agent recruitment process - and that's really the bottom line.. Lebron's a douche, or as Charley Rosen put it, "the biggest fraud since white chocolate"

You call him ledouche, lebrick, etc..

You say it for shock value or to get a raise outta someone.
I don't really care.only reason I'm acknowledging it is because if it were rose being scrutinized every bulls fan would jump on his nuts trying to defend him.

Only difference is.ones the best player in the league and one isn't.
a matter of preference. I actually like both.

I just dislike hating or baiting.
