LeBron James won't just be battling the Chicago Bulls' strong defense and raucous crowd for Wednesday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

James said Wednesday after the Miami Heat's shootaround that he's been fighting a head cold for the past three days that has been draining him. He said he's been treating it as best as he can with medication and extra rest.

"I'm taking everything you can get from 7-Eleven," James said. "I've been sick since we got here."

James struggled in the Heat's Game 1 loss to the Bulls, scoring just 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting. James did not blame his performance on the illness and has been able to get through all of the Heat's practices and workouts over the last few days.

This is nothing... just ESPN Chicago doing what they're supposed to do, and that's get Bulls fans riled up for the game. The more Bulls fans who think Lebron is trying to make excuses, the more pumped they'll get for the game. This is NOTHING just like the elbow injury was nothing last year. You never once heard Lebron say "I didn't beat the Celtics because I wasn't 100%". Just like he'll never say "Oh we only lost because of my head cold".

People put Lebron under a microscope for EVERYTHING. I bet a reporter asked him how he felt for tonights game, and he said "I'm ready, I've had a little runny nose but I'm ready to play" and they spun that into "OMG LEBRON HAS A COLD EXCUSES EXCUSES"

So he's already extended this as his excuse for Sunday, now tonight it's either "well he's sick" if he doesn't play great or "OMG MJ FLU GAME!" if he's back to normal.

I only take jabs at the Bulls fans who can't hold an argument and rag on Lebron for EVERYTHING HE DOES. I never talk bad about D Rose... I steered clear of the thread about J.A. Adandes article about "Rose the best NBA player?" just to avoid the mess that was probably in there. I never discredit the Bulls or think the Heat will murder them. Hell I picked the Celtics to beat the Heat in 6 games. So I'm just enjoying a good series. I just hate it when Bulls fans think the series is over after one game and who day in and day out hate hate hate on a player who you guys would have loved to join your team. The media is at fault for a majority of the hate the Heat gets. I just want to see them play basketball and let those results speak for words.

What Bulls fans are calling this series over after 1 game? Most are still calling for a 6/7 game series.

Exactly. For PSD's sake, I can't even decide what outcome I'd want. We'd have every Heat homer in the world bragging about Lebrons game if he did have a magnificent game. And if he does poor, then its "LeChoke" and how he makes excuses. God I hate ESPN some days...

The game thread for game 1 was rediculous... most smart Bulls fans would say that, just like a smart Heat fan would know if they want to beat the Bulls, it's going to have to be in 6-7 games. But the game threads are loaded with the homers who think the series is over after one game. Which is why I almost never go in them (side note, I'd rather watch a game in entirity with some friends then sit on my laptop waiting to type "OMG U MAD?" after a dunk or something... that's just me though).

In-game threads are one thing, but look at the actual threads discussing it, or the game 2 thread.

Hell, if the Heat win today, they'll be calling for 4 straight.

This is definitely an excuse and here's why, in boxing if you have an injury you don't announce it to your opponent because your just exposing your own weakness.

Same thing with basketball, sick or not, he should of kept his mouth shut.

4. Ooo, striking me where it hurts, hmm? Since the Bulls and Bucks have been good teams at the same time for so long which is why that rivalry is sooo good right? Maybe if you payed attention to the entire NBA, you'd know that Michael Redd is no longer a Buck.
5. Oh, how about another :facepalm:

EDIT: To clear things up, I don't hate the Bulls because they're from Chicago and I'm from Milwaukee. There is no Bucks/Bulls rivalry no matter what anyone says. I've never seen it in my lifetime, and until the two teams actually go down to the wire for the division, there never will be one. In baseball yes, in basketball no. Who could hate the Bulls by default when we all grew up watching the GOAT?

As a somewhat impartial observer (I want the Bulls to win the series, but am a Raptors fan), you just sound like an angry person. You have spent a bunch of time in this thread ripping on fans of other teams (particularly Bulls fans) and generally have made yourself sound angry and foolish.

I don't care why you hate the Bulls, I just think it is funny that you are so bitter about it. How is Michael Redd not a Buck? They still have his rights. Perhaps you meant that next year he won't be, but the free agent season has not started yet. Why do you think facepalms are an effective way of communicating? Why have you posted 10 times in this thread already? Why does it make someone a Bulls homer because they thought that a thread titled ESPNChicago..... would be in the Bulls forum? Again, why are you so angry.

Most Bucks fans know Michael Redd is gone. He might have been on the roster the past two years, but he was never a Buck. He never contributed anything. I can speak on behalf of all Bucks fans when I say good riddance Redd... it was nice having you, but you were just a good player on a bad team. The Bucks are in need of young shooting to rebuild correctly. If Hammond resigns Redd (even for the lowest deal possible), I'd be upset about it. Redd should be grouped with all the other veteran shooters looking to chase a ring (T-Mac) and go join a contender.

This is fair enough and I agree with everything in this particular post. But you called another poster an idiot for not "knowing" that Redd was not on the Bucks when he technically still is. I understand that they want to get rid of him, but your post was overreaching, which is somewhat humorous considering you were mocking someone else's intelligence.

It's weird that you don't realize that not calling another man the King, does not mean that a person is unaware that it is a nickname of Lebron's. The reality is, however, that I rarely hear it being used.

I hear it all the time. What's your point? Why does that bother you anyway?

Why is this even a thread? It's not like he called a press conference. He didn't say he was sitting it out. We all get sick and go to work or school, just don't get paid millions for it.

Remember brother is Lebron. With this, people have something else to criticize. If the thread said, Lebron scored 50 points, everyone would write who cares? there is a forum for the Heat. But now they have a negligible news to criticize Lebron and say nothing about moving the thread to the Heat forum. :clap:

This is nothing... just ESPN Chicago doing what they're supposed to do, and that's get Bulls fans riled up for the game. The more Bulls fans who think Lebron is trying to make excuses, the more pumped they'll get for the game. This is NOTHING just like the elbow injury was nothing last year. You never once heard Lebron say "I didn't beat the Celtics because I wasn't 100%". Just like he'll never say "Oh we only lost because of my head cold".

People put Lebron under a microscope for EVERYTHING. I bet a reporter asked him how he felt for tonights game, and he said "I'm ready, I've had a little runny nose but I'm ready to play" and they spun that into "OMG LEBRON HAS A COLD EXCUSES EXCUSES"






Really? Well I wonder why Lebron said this after losing a game against the Bulls back on January 15, 2009:


Oh, and I guess you can kill all the Michael Jordan comparisons for a moment or too, since LeBron blamed his poor performance on his stuffy head and runny nose: "I absolutely had no lift tonight. Every time that happens, when I get sick, I miss layups -- layup after layup, things I usually make."

It seems like Lebron always does this kind of stuff to be theatrical and try to live up to what other players have done. He says he is injured/sick/whatever and then when he has a great game, its him fighting through the hardships or pains to have an excellent game. Whenever he goes to the line after a hard fould he always milks the injury for what its worth to play to the crowd. Seems like he just wants people to think he is tougher than he actually is.
