Thanks to all of you who watched our Decision Revisited special. Fascinating too look back at the fallout and ahead to the Heat future

Always amusing to hear I was "too hard" and "too easy" on LeBron. No, I've ALWAYS SAID he's NBA's most talented player. But no clutch gene

No way I'd trade LeBron for DHoward, who has too much LeBron in him. Also disappears big games. LeBron more valuable, better Robin for DWade

On Decision night LeBron tried to act cool and cold-shoulder Cleveland b/c it was humiliating to admit so publicly he couldn't be The Man.

If DWade quits deferring so much to LeBron late in games, and Haslem and MMiller stay healthy, Heat can win 2 championships. Up to DWade

Skip Bayless is making a successful career out of bashing Lebron. He just can't stop himself.

As much as a chump as Skip Bayless is, he does make some not-far-off statements. Until LeBron proves him wrong, there is SOME validity to his comments.

I dont agree with skip on the dwight howard for lebron thing. I think wade and howard would be a newer version of a shaq/kobe, of course not as good as them, but the closest thing since then. not saying with lebron they wont win championships, cause lets face it, in the next 6 years they will win a couple at least.

Did you guys actually read what he wrote? Hows that bashing when it was all true? He is better as Wades sidekick, I wouldn't trade him for Howard either, and he said they will get at least 2 rings...... where's the bashing?

Also if you watched the program today he was very on point with everything he said. He said he didn't even have a problem with the "celebration" because as far as he's concerned it was strictly for Miami fans. The panel was actually saying he went to easy on Lebron today. He didn't even bash him for making fun of Dirk because he said Wade was really the instigator.......

Of course he's making a successful career out of it, cuz people like you rehash his material.

I watch First Take every day, but even I didn't turn on the TV today, how much Lebron nonsense can one person stand.

Am I missing something here???? What on his Twitter was false.

Well the last year proved he was dead on about everything.

As far Skip he is generally a douche. He hates Derrick Rose, also. I mean he just says whatever. But his tweets here aren't so off. I mean IMO the Heat would be better with Wade leading the charge more.

yup and he's going to continue you because butt hurt LeBron fans like yourself are going to keep tuning in to see what he has to say.

Clearly this hurts you , if your checking out his twitter..

This is the same guy that has Carmelo in his top 5 over Lebron because of his 42 pt. game against Boston in the playoffs. Then went on to bash Lebron over a couple of games he lost for the Heat, but completely ignored his great ECF series or pointed out the games he lost.

He bashed Lebron for losing, but must have short term memory because Melo lost that 42 pt game.

Who's worse? Charles Barkley or Skip Bayless?

The only thing I like about him is he truly values Wade. Wade needs to be less deferring to LeBron next season and take over the control of the ball more. LeBron should be spending more time in the gym playing off the ball.

Why is it when someone is hating, someone refers to it as truth. He OPINION is not truth. I cant even call it an Opinion, because that is not how he feels. He just likes to say negative things to get small minded people excited.

You really must have missed something if you think Skip speaks any truth.

I agree to often enough Skip doesn't give LeBron enough credit. However if we are all going to crown him as the best in the league he needs to be held to higher standards and different standards than Moochie Norris. Think of how much scrutiny Peyton Manning was under before he could win the big game. I don't think many people are completely mad at LeBron for going to Miami, because with hindsight being 20/20, they didn't win year one. A majority of fans are disappointed with the way LeBron handled everything. Imagine your favorite player of all time playing for your home town team, and then leaving with little remorse and the next night you see him boasting with his new buddies. Had LeBron shown up to the finals, Skip wouldn't be ragging on him anymore. During the Bulls and Celtics series when he closed, Skip praised him and thought he turned the corner. People hate Skip because they have their head stuffed up LeBron's ***, those who listen impartially understand that Skip isn't saying anything that isn't true. LeBron is the best player in the league who disappears in big situations. LeBron had to go to Miami because he couldn't do it alone and needs Wade and Bosh, he said that himself during "The Decision." Therefore the HATERS are the ones hating on a guy for speaking the truth, and they just don't want to hear it. This isn't 3rd grade anymore PSD posters, grow up.

Skip Bayless can definitely be funny at times, and I agree that Dwyane Wade defers too much to LeBron at times. Wade had the better matchup in the Finals, and he still went to LeBron alot in the 4th quarter of games. That isn't smart basketball, but is Skip really just going to throw the ECF and Semi Finals series' out the window just because of his Finals performance? Granted he chose the worst time to dissappear, but c'mon. Also, as far as trading LeBron for Howard, I would definitely entertain that idea, but LeBron is still the best current player in the NBA.

He is the best current player, but could you imagine the Heat with three top notch players at three different positions. They would be unstoppable. Even I know that and I don't know much about basketball. I wonder how pissed Lebron would be if that actually went through.

Yeah, as I said, I'd definitely entertain that idea, because Howard is a rare entity in the league today(the best center in the NBA). Not to mention having a Chris Bosh along side him, and great perimeter scorer in Dwyane Wade. That's a more well balanced unit and the floor would be more spread for Wade to operate. It's a tough decision, but if that did go down, I'd be more than happy with it. Dwight Howard is a guy that any team would die trying to get on their team. LeBron would definitely be pissed if that happened. No question.

You kind of have to throw out the ecf and semi out the window, because that was the all time worst performance in the finals by a NBA superstar.

It really was that bad. Then guy completely crumbled, and the team crumbled around him. Making a bunch of 3 pointers in the semi finals, that everyone knows he never makes consistently doesn't change that.

That's fair to an extent. He was bad in the Finals, but you can't just simply throw out ECF and Semi finals, because without it, the Heat would've lost to Boston in the second round. :shrug:

It's fair to criticize LeBron's Finals performance, but you can't just forget what he did to get the Heat there in the first place.

Nothing really wrong with anything he said...He wouldn't trade LBJ for Dwight straight up which sounds reasonable, he said LBJ is the most talented player in the league, and the sidekick comment is probably his way in saying the scoring must come primarily from Wade during the clutch moments which also sounds feasible for the most part.

I don't understand what is so wrong about what Skip is saying and has been saying for a while now! I've said the same thing ever since the guy has been playing in the post season. His gotten undue credit before he stepped onto the court. Is he the best basketball player as of last season, sure, no denying it. But does he ever show up on the biggest stage with the game on the line? The answer to that we all know, even Lebron lovers is NO! The man has made only TWO BUZZER BEATERS in his entire career, that's counting regular season and postseason; not shots with six seconds left to go ahead or 12 second, I'm talking as the buzzer sounds! Kobe has made that many in one game in the post season alone (Check the LA vs Phoenix series). And until he does that, Lebron deserves to be bashed because he and many other walk around with a sense of self entitlement that they have not yet reached or deserved. Do you get tired of Rex Ryan saying their going to win the Super Bowl the past two seasons? Well that's practically the same thing.

This. I totally agree. If you actually read Skip's statements, they really aren't inflammatory here. I know that statistically Lebron is very good in the clutch, but it does not seem out of line for Skip to criticize a guy who he acknowledges is incredible for not winning (and he managed to do it without pointing out in any specifics that Lebron bailed entirely in the NBA Finals).

Sad that the Heat sycophants and Lebron lovers in this thread view any comment about Lebron that is not flowery as being hating or bashing or idiotic.
