MIAMI -- Dirk Nowitzki didn't find anything funny about the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade and LeBron James coughing and cracking jokes about being sick in front of cameras, calling it "childish."

Wade and James didn't mention Nowitzki's name, but it appeared they were mocking the Dallas Mavericks superstar while walking out of the American Airlines Center following Thursday's shootaround, before Game 5 of the NBA Finals. That's certainly how Nowitzki, who battled a sinus infection that caused a 101-degree fever during Dallas' Game 4 win, perceived the incident when he watched the video.

"I just thought it was a little childish, a little ignorant," Nowitzki said before Saturday's practice at AmericanAirlines Arena. "I've been in this league for 13 years. I've never faked an injury or illness."

Wade, who referred to Nowitzki's sinus infection Thursday as "the fun-loving story of him being sick," claimed Saturday that he didn't pretend to cough.

"I actually did cough," Wade said. "And with the cameras being right there, we made a joke out of it because we knew you guys were going to blow it up. You did exactly what we knew.

"We never said Dirk's name. I think he's not the only one in the world who can get sick or have a cough. We just had fun with the cameras being right in our face about the blowup of the incident, and it held to be true. You blew it up."

James did not clarify whether his cough was fake or not. He declined to discuss the incident.

"I'm not feeding into that," said James, who has been heavily criticized for performing well below his standards during this series. "If you guys want to feed into everything that not only myself or D-Wade or the Miami Heat do, I think that's a non-issue. There's bigger issues in this series than that."

Nowitzki, who is averaging 27.0 points and has consistently dominated in crunch-time during the series, agrees with that point. With the Mavericks up 3-2 in the Finals, Nowitzki's focus is solely on closing out the series to claim his first championship.

While the coughing and joking by Wade and James annoyed Nowitzki, he said it wouldn't influence his demeanor during Game 6.

"It's over to me," Nowitzki said. "It's not going to add anything extra to me. This is the NBA Finals. If you need extra motivation, you have a problem.

"So we're one win away from my dream, what I've worked for half of my life. This is all I'm really worried about. This is all I'm focusing on."

Glad Dirk came out and said something

He's exactly right though, these 2 are childish and ignorant, I thought it was funny how Wade said they did it to get a rise out of the media... ********, grow the **** up and act your age, Lebron's really rubbing off on Wade, this kid came into the league and was a humble guy, now he just sounds like a *******

Yeah right, Wade. You MADE it look like you were mocking Dirk through your body language and by acknowledging Lebron's response with laughter. Had you just "coughed", why would you act in such a way or elicit such a response from Lebron? It's obvious, you had joked about Dirk's illness or expressed your doubts with Lebron in private.

I agree with the majority of the responses in this thread, and especially with Dirk's comments.

Wade and James need to wake the **** up and stop being such prima donna *****es. You're a game away from being sent packing in a series you could very well have won by now. That's what you get for being childish and feeling entitled.

I still hope to see them turn it around, but it's bull **** like this that makes this HEAT team very unlikeable.

Or perhaps it was just a brilliant ploy to get the media to focus on something other than LeBron's disappearing act in the 4th quarter. :shrug:

At least that's what wade did game 5.

i had a big sigh of relief when i read this because its finally a Heat fan saying that they are prima donas because if it isnt a Heat fan saying it, then we are labeled as a "hater". but its true.

they need to get serious if they want to win this series. people are have been quick to say that Lebron is the next Jordan and people were agreeing with Scottie when he said Lebron is better than Jordan and thats all nonsense. if Jordan were in this situation he would have never been cracking jokes or gloating like they already had the series in the bag.

Wade has been taking shots at Dirk for 6+ years now. This isn't a surprise that he continued now, the two have never been friends nor will they ever be. Wade has criticized Dirk as a leader before and now he is questioning his toughness. The guy has always been an *** it's just becoming more noticeable because he has an *** the size of Kim Kardashian's to feed into his antics (LeBron).

I admire the Mavericks for their mindset throughout these finals. They didnt celeberate when they won the conference finals and are still very much focused being one win away. I love where Dirk's head is at, "If you need motivation for the finals you shouldnt be here"...Lebron and Wade could learn something from this veteran team that will help them achieve their goal if they would simply open their eyes and see what it takes. They have a perfect example before them, I just worry their immaturity will continue to hold them back...a lot of God given talent on that team if they would just use it the right way.

It's not hating, most of us just find their actions to be quite immature to say the least. There are also a lot of haters when it comes to MJ and the Bulls but at least they weren't remembered for being immature punks that lacked sportsmanship. Fans will remember Lebron not shaking hands with the Orlando Magic, they will remember the obnoxious parade and they will now remember this.

I can feel the hate in this thread. I don't remember a team being hated more and as a fan of the Heat I love it.

I personally enjoy watching both of them play. They are two great talents however all of the things they say and do outside of the game is a different story. I enjoyed it when LBJ went to the Heat cause the Cavs weren't doing **** for him. The Heat went out and got better I give them credit for that. What I can't understand is how LBJ was more humble and mature at the age of 18 than he is now. What also bothers me is how Wade keeps taking shots at Dirk for what appears to be no good reason at all. You've been talking **** to the man for long enough now and he has never said anything vulgar towards your direction. I don't get it. They made themselves the villains, not anyone else. That cocky-*** Decision, the whole "it's gonna be easy, we're not gonna win 1, not 2, not 3 championships..." comment was just a spit in the face to every player in basketball. They are arrogant as hell, thought that they won the championship before even playing any games and they are as paranoid as they come. As great as their game is, their character is on opposite ends of the spectrum. Wade's response to "cough-gate" is one of the most out-landish things I've ever heard from another professional athlete, it's right up there with "mis-remembered": "we did it so that the media could blow it up because we knew that they were going to blow it up so we gave them what they wanted and we're the smart ones because we baited them into getting a reaction that was over the top and that's what we wanted because we wanted them to say that we look bad but we don't look bad because we planned the whole thing. True story. I coughed. :)" Yeah Wade...you are the coolest person in the world and everyone wants to be just like you, not really you're actually an ***. A great player, but an *** none-the-less. :facepalm:

06-11-2011, 05:55 PM
Dirk is one classy guy. My respect level for him just continues to go up; not just from play on the court, but because of the man he is off the court. And Dwade better stop letting Lebron's ridiculous ego and classless behavior rub off on him.

I liked Dirks response to this. I am starting to really become disappointed with wades antics. Wade was my favorite basketball player, but I just can't stand immature *** athletes and ever since he teamed up with lebron, it's like he is following lebrons lead or something when it comes to acting immature.. even lebron I'm a little surprised about since he made such a big deal about his damn elbow last year. yet though, lebron isn't the smartest person so i guess i shouldn't be surprised at all.

agreed. but especially the bolded part. Jordan was all business when it came to showing up at the arena. He didn't act like a teenage girl in the bathroom of high school.

I hope dirk goes off for almost 50 like he did against OKC in game 6. I would love to see the heat fans (and players) cry.

I must have missed Dirk making fun of Wade's rib injuries. Did Dirk show up to the game 5 interviews with a rib brace and wheelchair mocking Wade?

Difference is Dallas problem is internal with Dirk calling out Terry. That is totally different.

Not even close to Miami/Lebron/Wade antics.

Lebron and Wade were reacting to that and made a joke about that. Those two also made some kind of comment about Jason Kidd being old too that was kind of funny. There was nothing malicious about any of this, although I do see the side that says that Lebron and Wade are not taking any of this serious enough.

If this was the other way around you would have been praising DIRK for calling out a fake illness. Remember the story of the ONE DAY FLU, or whatever its been called now sinus infection only broke after DIRK shot poorly after hiting his first 3 shots.. After that it was breaking news of dirk being sick. Wasnt like when MJ had the FLU it was reported before the game. Listening to DIRK during his press conference he didnt look sick at all, even during the breaks in that same game DIRK looked fine to me.


Thats why i think mods need to get involve here. The bias nature on this page is unreal. Im sorry chicago miami beat you guys and reveled that its only ONE player on that team thats worth the hype.

I again say sorry to the celtics fans who didnt realize your window closed once perkins was traded.

I also send a extended im sorry for the lakers fans who still have splinters by the team who is actually in the finals.



But this bitter bias fans on here are silly.. If dirk called out wade for being injuried you guys would say YEA HE IS RIGHT.


What ever happened to this site used to be fans who didnt agree, but can see things from both sides of the fence.



With it stated continue to hate miami, and if miami does pulls this off.. What will you have to say then?

championship trophy tattoo isnt childish... all the trash talking he does *terry, and even marion* they even showed that on tv.. marion running his mouth.


my thing is just because this is wade/lbj this is an issue.


if this was anyone else no one would probably care.


for the most part miami has been quit.


not calling ppl out that they checked out, and they couldnt guard them for 7 games.. this and that






im like this if you like trash talking then dont bash ONE for doing and other one yea thats ok.."bias"

It wouldnt be no problem if LBJ and wade talked smacked. It was that they were giggling and coughing, than said it was a real cough when it clearly was not. On top of that fake cough he said it was not aimed at dirk.

what was the point of doing that

I prefer lebron talking smack and tryna back it up. not making fun of someone which has nothing to do with them winning.

why are they complaining? its not like all the heat players and staff told eachother to kae it easy on dirk

thats a form of "trash talking" also i felt the same way.. even if one of my guys i cheered for had a "DAY FLU" and the story only broke when he had a bad half....


again if wade did this.. betta yet james did this "had a FLU" that was over in a day and wasnt even mentioned til after a bad quarter do you think PSD wouldnt have hopped on that.


not to mention they already said wade was "faking a injury" whats the difference really?

I agreed with you dude. but he should have said it in a interview. not mocking

wade is not injured. but during game 5 he was. the guy missed mad minutes

Usually when an big time, great player is attacked, it is done with subjective, arbitrary comments that are pulled out of the commentee's ***.

"LeBron isn't a big time player."

"LeBron is a choker."

"LeBron is a horrible human being."

C'mon, if you don't have anything substantial to say, keep your stupid, biased remarks at the water cooler or with your friends, who probably process information in the same ridiculous, illogical manner.

5 games, and not even 5, to be realistic, is an incredibly small sample of games, and not enough to draw any conclusions from. Here you go. Dispute this:


James — the man without It — set the postseason record for Win Shares per 48 in 2009.

James has already authored eight of the top-75 playoff games by Game Score (since 1991). That’s as many as Michael Jordan, only LeBron has done it in fewer games.

http://www.backpicks.com/2011/05/25/cognitive-bias-in-the-lebron-narrative/

LeBron and Wade will probably go on to both have 2 fantastic games, along with LeBron shredding the Mavs in both 4th quarters. Then, people will move on to attacking LeBron for something else completely unrelated to his greatness on the court.

And hopefully this is one of my lasts posts in the basketball forum. Idiocy and ignorance might be contagious.

Some of you kill me,
If this was the other way around you would have been praising DIRK for calling out a fake illness. Remember the story of the ONE DAY FLU, or whatever its been called now sinus infection only broke after DIRK shot poorly after hiting his first 3 shots.. After that it was breaking news of dirk being sick. Wasnt like when MJ had the FLU it was reported before the game. Listening to DIRK during his press conference he didnt look sick at all, even during the breaks in that same game DIRK looked fine to me.


Thats why i think mods need to get involve here. The bias nature on this page is unreal. Im sorry chicago miami beat you guys and reveled that its only ONE player on that team thats worth the hype.

I again say sorry to the celtics fans who didnt realize your window closed once perkins was traded.

I also send a extended im sorry for the lakers fans who still have splinters by the team who is actually in the finals.



But this bitter bias fans on here are silly.. If dirk called out wade for being injuried you guys would say YEA HE IS RIGHT.


What ever happened to this site used to be fans who didnt agree, but can see things from both sides of the fence.



With it stated continue to hate miami, and if miami does pulls this off.. What will you have to say then?

worst long post in PSD history. ok mrs. detective woman. Firstly, No one cares how dirk looked according to you. secondly, how do you know how things would have been the other way around? U sound like one of those i think i know it all types. BTW dirks flu wasnt reportded after the game and it wasnt one day. he was feeling symptoms in game 5 but nothing that would affect his play or fatigue him. that what happens when you're temp goes down from 101 to 98 or whatever it was.

BTW practice what you preach. you say we should see things from both sides of the fence yet you just went and made assumption after assumption about lakers, celtics and bulls fans and then you have a miami heat sig :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

also, is it only possible for wade's hip to hurt for one game and carry over slightly to the next but not possible for dirk to be sick for a game? (i believe them both) but according to you.. are miami heat players the only ones allowed to have an illness or an injury? i bet you think caron butler and haywood and beabuios are all faking their injuries too? In my opinion I think wade and dirk have better things to do than fake illnesses and injuries. its the finals.

LOL Sinus Infection isn't a flu. From what I heard it was a head cold and Sinus Infection (That he's still recovering from)

Anyways this latest thing from Wade and Lebron doesn't make me hate them why should it? It's a form of trash talk whether people like it or not. When you trash talk you can talk out of your *** or you can mock people as well and they were mocking and making fun of. It is what it is. I like things like this because it fuels the rivalry even more even if it was a childish thing to do. Terry and Stevenson have been doing their talking, Wade and Lebron took their shots at the Mavs let's continue the series now

06-11-2011, 08:44 PM
People still taking shots at Laker fans? Wow. Most of us are actualling pulling for Dallas because they beat the Lakers....?



But anyway to the topic what Wade and Lebron did was corny but at the end of the day looking at the responses quite a few of you are going to hate on them regardless so I guess thats just more motivation for you. Some of you sound like they actually killed your relative or something, it's pretty sad.

Also I like the double standard of praising Dirk for being classy when he stooped low enough to acknowledge the incident and name called them to boot. Yeah, real classy. A real class act would've been to ignore it and keep winning.....

But if another team does the exact same thing its different. Its ok.
Now yes iam a heat fan, and the story was presented at HALFTIME if you want to be correct please give the full story.


I just think it was odd how it broke, which left room for it to be not true.

I do believe wade took a shot at dirk, but miami has shots taken at them all of the time.

The most hated team for what, since when did miami become the PSD team to post about.

Ive been on here for years PLAYBOI. this aint no bandwagon fan here.



Ive seen what it has become and its sicken. The mods let people who dont like miami get away with murder.

Reading more of what you have wrote why would Dirk fake a sickness after only missing 3 shots? Really 3 shots? The guy got hurt in game 1 of this series did he use that as an excuse? Has it stopped him from averaging 27 pts 9.4 rbs in the finals so far so why would he fake a sickness after 3 missed shots? LOL that's comical to me

I'm not trying to take any sides at all but I found ur insinuations kinda out there a bit. Like i said in my initial post I don't really care what Wade and Lebron said I actually like the storylines but as far as what you are trying to say is a bit out there.

Oh i agree 100% if it was on the flip the would have said Lebron was using another excuse. That's just with all the hate towards that team. I respect ya opinion and views but I just can't agree that the Dirk situation was faked. I think the media knew he was sick but didn't know exactly what it was so initially said a flu.

I'm a long time Bulls fan and Knicks most recently(since 02) and I have no hate for any of those guys and their were rumors about all 3 of them and both of my teams at one point or another.

Oh thats because the heat were pretty much irrelevant since they came into the nba. when you are hated that means you are ding something right. the heat have the talent to win it all.

I can feel the hate in this thread. I don't remember a team being hated more and as a fan of the Heat I love it.

It's not hating the Heat, because you can't fault the name HEAT, but when you have people from that squad making fun of someone else's sickness, it's messed up. D Wade was a humble player, but now it's starting to look more and more like he's LeBron's pet. I do hope the Mavs win because I want Kidd to get his ring and it would be nice for the city of Cleveland, as they say, "What goes around, comes around".

You did it so the media would blow it up? We've got it right up to there, correct?

Ok, but then, you don't want to feed into it anymore? Hmm, strange.

Usually when an big time, great player is attacked, it is done with subjective, arbitrary comments that are pulled out of the commentee's ***.

"LeBron isn't a big time player."

"LeBron is a choker."

"LeBron is a horrible human being."

C'mon, if you don't have anything substantial to say, keep your stupid, biased remarks at the water cooler or with your friends, who probably process information in the same ridiculous, illogical manner.

5 games, and not even 5, to be realistic, is an incredibly small sample of games, and not enough to draw any conclusions from. Here you go. Dispute this:



http://www.backpicks.com/2011/05/25/cognitive-bias-in-the-lebron-narrative/

LeBron and Wade will probably go on to both have 2 fantastic games, along with LeBron shredding the Mavs in both 4th quarters. Then, people will move on to attacking LeBron for something else completely unrelated to his greatness on the court.

And hopefully this is one of my lasts posts in the basketball forum. Idiocy and ignorance might be contagious.

Pretty sure people are referring to choking as in NBA finals. The label of choker will be removed when he wins a ring. Also, 11 pts in 60 total minutes in the 4th quarter by the so-called greatest player in the nba (often compared to Jordan) is pretty pathetic.

I just think even as a fan of ONE team we cant ignore the antics of our OWN team.


Like for me i think twitter should be taking away from my team. No one needs to know what you are doing unless you are in the gym working hard to get a title.

If this was the other way around you would have been praising DIRK for calling out a fake illness. Remember the story of the ONE DAY FLU, or whatever its been called now sinus infection only broke after DIRK shot poorly after hiting his first 3 shots.. After that it was breaking news of dirk being sick. Wasnt like when MJ had the FLU it was reported before the game. Listening to DIRK during his press conference he didnt look sick at all, even during the breaks in that same game DIRK looked fine to me.


Thats why i think mods need to get involve here. The bias nature on this page is unreal. Im sorry chicago miami beat you guys and reveled that its only ONE player on that team thats worth the hype.

I again say sorry to the celtics fans who didnt realize your window closed once perkins was traded.

I also send a extended im sorry for the lakers fans who still have splinters by the team who is actually in the finals.



But this bitter bias fans on here are silly.. If dirk called out wade for being injuried you guys would say YEA HE IS RIGHT.


What ever happened to this site used to be fans who didnt agree, but can see things from both sides of the fence.



With it stated continue to hate miami, and if miami does pulls this off.. What will you have to say then?

Well because a sinus infection combined with a fever has the exact same symptoms as a flu. And it was obvious Dirk was sick throughout the entire game, he was flush and he was clearly wheezing throughout the entire game. : /

And it's exactly that, Dirk DIDN'T come out and pretend he was limping but Wade/Lebron chose to act like little kids. There wouldn't be "both sides of the fence" because Dallas knows better.

When clarified it was found out that he had a sinus infection, which btw ive had many and can be very very VERY uncomfortable. They make you feel like **** and you cant concentrate on anything let alone play a huge basketball game AND be the deciding player in that game.

As a medical student, I'm going to have a little fun with this. : )

There are several different kinds of sinus infections. There's ethmoid, maxillary, frontal and sphenoid.

The most common symptoms among these numerous forms of sinusitis is malaise, fatigue, fever, stuffy nose and difficult breathing. How are these symptoms any different from a flu? It's also not uncommon for a doctor to include muscle aches as a symptom when it could've been caused simply by Dirk playing basketball. Other than sinus headaches and dull pain surrounding the nasal cavities they're actually quite similar and can be misdiagnosed especially if it was a quick check up prior to the game (and a full check up after the game) which resulted in the differing diagnosis. The NPSF commissioned a survey in 1997 and found that 40% of patients were misdiagnosed. So it's not uncommon especially two ailments with similar symptoms.

Youre not angry?? hahahahaha, yea okay, well you could have fooled me. Sounds like since someone cant be on here gloating how the greatest team ever assembled with the greatest player ever born is one game away from losing in the finals, you have to nitpick on some little issue and then whine and complain how people dont give your hero the credit he deserves.

Yes Lebron is a great player (though even you must admit he is overwhelmingly unimpressive in crunch time) and he will continue to be a great player. However he has a childish personality as well as being extremely egocentric. The American public isnt going to get behind a player like that, theyre going to root against him. Thats exactly what youre seeing.

Im a Yankees fan, people bash my team and my players everyday, sometimes for good reasons, most of the time for not. Ask a bulls fan how they feel when a Drose thread is made, or any Lakers fans for the numerous annoying threads and hate they have to deal with. But you know what???? THEY DEAL WITH IT.

Other than pain surrounding the nasal cavities, yes they're the same. I didn't know I needed to be MD specific on a sports forum. The point is, the media "misinterpreted" what was said or it was misdiagnosed, my main point was that it wasn't as much of a conspiracy that you've made it out to be. As well, the media outlets never said it was a flu, several of them in fact said Dirk has flu-like symptoms. That can fit the bill of sinusitis anyway.

Ask a bulls fan how they feel when a Drose thread is made, or any Lakers fans for the numerous annoying threads and hate they have to deal with. But you know what???? THEY DEAL WITH IT. Youre not the only person whos team and players get hated on, so deal with and stop going on and on and on and on about something thats ridiculous.

MJ flu very real, it was CLEAR to see he was physically out of it.. sweating beyond measure. What i saw didnt look real. but wade and james should have kepted that private.

Being everything they do is "breaking news"

Yup because everybody whos sick has to show you in an over the top manner that theyre sick right? Do you know Dirk? Were you with him before/during/after the game? Because if you werent then you have absolutely ZERO credibility and ABILITY to be stating that he wasnt sick.

And with the cameras being right there, we made a joke out of it because we knew you guys were going to blow it up. You did exactly what we knew.

What does this prove? That you acted immature, ignorant, childish, DBish, clownish, etc., you name it, and then the media says that's what you did?

"Oh yeah we knew if we acted like knuckleheads the media would be all over us."

Ok? Don't act like knuckleheads and you won't get embarrassed.

I hate both of them now. Sad, because I use to like Wade.

and here we go...


So do you think its wrong that terry got a tattoo of championship trophy when he doesnt even have one yet.

And lebron just got a triple double, in my eyes thats a good game.

Could have produced more in the end of games i sure hope so.


But again you cant get on ONE and not the other.


Lets be fair on who we call out.

a triple double in a losing effort with 2 points in the 4th. We can't take it away from him but let's be honest the triple double is the only thing that saved him from getting completely trashed again.

I love how some people get so offended that this story is being blown out of proportion by the media. Of course it's getting blown out of proportion: IT'S THE FINALS. There are only 2 teams left playing at this point and there is very little else to talk about regarding the other teams. It should be assumed that every action of every significant player on both finals teams is going to be scrutinized and analyzed. If any player acted like Wade and LeBron did yesterday, it would be met with a similar negative response. It may be slightly more publicized, but what did you expect? This was the choice James made when he chose to use announce his "Decision" on National TV and have a parade for his welcome to the Heat...he welcomed the publicity and media then, and they walked right into his open arms.

This isn't about Terry though, this is about LeBron and Wade doing something stupid and Dirk responding to it.

Who cares if he gets a triple double and then when its crunch time and the superstar that he is should come out, take over the game and put the team on his back.

No, I'm actually trying to get back on track after you derailed me with a miniscule difference of which isn't conducive to the original argument I was trying to make or lead to.

So, how is being affected by sinusitis a conspiracy by Dirk to cover up his poor play as you've described below?


Some of you kill me,
If this was the other way around you would have been praising DIRK for calling out a fake illness. Remember the story of the ONE DAY FLU, or whatever its been called now sinus infection only broke after DIRK shot poorly after hiting his first 3 shots.. After that it was breaking news of dirk being sick. Wasnt like when MJ had the FLU it was reported before the game. Listening to DIRK during his press conference he didnt look sick at all, even during the breaks in that same game DIRK looked fine to me.

Pretty sure people are referring to choking as in NBA finals. The label of choker will be removed when he wins a ring.

Sorry to disappoint, but there is nothing mystical about the NBA finals that would turn a player who has shown to be great at any moment of the game into a small child.

The "NBA Finals" isn't a parallel universe, drastically different than the Eastern Conference Finals, or any other basketball game. It doesn't work that way.


Also, 11 pts in 60 total minutes in the 4th quarter by the so-called greatest player in the nba (often compared to Jordan) is pretty pathetic.

Yup, but such a small sample of games doesn't say anything negative about his character, especially when there's a bevy of information that shows the contrary to what everyone wants to believe.

Add on that James is on a super team. The fact that he's getting 2 points in the crunch time of a game is pathetic.

Yes. It doesn't say anything about his character, though. It's a small sample of games, and to draw any conclusions from such is simply intellectually negligent.


I think most people would agree he's a phenomenal talent, but he chokes when the pressure is on.

Most people are stupid, as shown by this thread. Most people defer to ESPN for their dose of basketball analysis.

Nah....not to me...It's still on the funny side....All this arguing and pointless posts are just making me lol all over myself. Since this thread has been so random......And all about LeBron how about y'all just go ahead and talk about his acting?...:)

His acting is Oscar worthy. You can see him in his debut movie where he plays the lead role as Moses Scuttlesworth in "He Got Game 2: Not 1, Not 2, Not 3, Not 4, but 2! That's all I'll give you in the 4th is 2!" Rated R for Really?

A player's performance decreasing or not doesn't mean that the pressure doesn't greatly rise.

LeBron has played very well in the playoffs as a whole, but his play decreases on the biggest stage. Take '07 for example, his overall number dropped from lets say the first round to the final round. As an example he scored roughly 28 PPG in the first round and that dropped to 22 PPG in the finals. His FG%, FT%, 3p%, etc all decreased. His turnovers skyrocketed.

Same thing holds true to this year. He was fantastic in the earlier rounds and has kind of disappeared in the Finals.

He's a stud in the early rounds, but hasn't been very impressive when the pressure is at its highest.

Right, and if performance doesn't vary as a whole, then what does that tell you?

It doesn't matter. It's a mute point.

He was also playing against the best defense in the league with little to no help offensively. Why, instead, cannot it not be credited to fatigue? Considering he had been carrying the Cavs throughout the playoffs, and had already had a tremendous series against the Pistons? Why must it be automatically attributed to his character, and not some other factor?

There's not sufficient evidence to support any of your claims, especially when your reasoning is ''the finals are just completely different". C'mon. Yes, the pressure is higher in the finals, obviously, but the difference is marginal. You can't shift the goal posts....

Wade didn't have a very good ECF (at least anecdotally) -- should we go ahead and say that he just can't handle the pressure of the ECF? Yet, somehow, he's fine in the finals.

No -- that's ridiculous, isn't?

Right. There's a certain, incredibly highthresh hold of pressure where LeBron goes from being the best player in the planet to a small child. How is that in any way, shape, or form logical? There's little evidence to support the notion that the concept of clutch exists, let alone that it is as volatile as you're claiming it is.

But the bottom line remains the same, the more pressure, the more LeBron falters. We've seen him reach the finals twice. So far he has not done anything worth mentioning in the finals. If Dallas wins and LeBron continues this trend and moves to 0-2 in the finals, playing poorly in both of them, eventually people have to think it has less to do with the level of competition and fatigue and more with his mentality.

And that's simply not true. We have repeatedly seen LeBron put up ridiculous performances when pressure is at its highest.

The guy ****ing scored 25 consecutive points against the Pistons to end a game. And that's just an example. I'm gonna post this again. Maybe someone will read it this time:

http://www.backpicks.com/2011/05/25/cognitive-bias-in-the-lebron-narrative/

Note that it was written before the NBA finals. The past 5 games aren't any of a sample to change any of the conclusions made in the article.


Again, what you're telling me is logically incongruous. His dip in performances cannot be attributed to lack of clutch, although the existence of such a concept isn't even definite, as he has repeatedly performed under pressure. And considering the difference in pressure between the NBA finals and another pressure situation is marginal at best, your explanation, and everyone else's, is a faulty one. If you were to be correct, then LeBron's character would have to consistently fail him in high pressure situations. That is not the case. Thus, LeBron's bad performances can be attributed to some other factor, or no factor at all -- in other words, the small sample of games does not serve us to make any hasty generalizations.
