    Definition of a Quitter?

    I've seen so many people state "LBJ gave Cleveland 7 years to surround him with a title contender and it didn't happen"

    I couldn't disagree more

    How can you say Cleveland had 7 years to surround lbj with a contender and it didn't happen?

    They surrounded him with enough talent to make the finals 1 year, lbj couldn't rise to the occasion and got swept on his azz.

    The past 2 years lbj was surrounded with enough talent to produce 2 60 win seasons and top seeds in the east only to watch lbj fail in the playoffs again.

    LBJ then decided to quit as a failure in Cleveland.

    For comparison sake think about this,

    MJ didn't quit when he came up short in back to back seasons against Detroit in 89 and 90...

    MJ didn't collude with Bird and Magic to make a superteam to try to get a ring.

    No the Bulls gave Jordan role players for the 90-91 season
    The mighty Dennis Hopson, Cliff Levingston and Scott Williams were the 3 new players on the Bulls

    Like a real man MJ took those 3 pieces he got and elevated his game and his team to overcome and sweep the Piston's on their azz and steam roll to a title he could call his own and something He truly earned..

    LBJ your decision to quit on Cleveland is excactly what it is...

    You gave "blood, sweat and tears" but in the end quit and took the easy way out rather than pushing yourself to new heights...

    LBJ my friend, you are the definition of a quiter....

    You think a starting 5 of Ilgauskas, Gooden, LBJ, Hughes and Gibson was good enough of a talent to win a title? Going to the finals with that team should be an achievement in itself.

    The Cavs had the best record last year. They designed that team so Lebron could shine and handpicked guys that would fit in to supporting roles. It worked in the regular season. Not their fault Lebron and the team choked come playoff time. Lebron didn't simply just want a chance to "win" He wanted the easiest chance to win.

    For all the people who say LeBron wasn't surrounded by talent, your wrong! Cleavland had the best record last season. To say LeBron wasn't surrounded by talent is ridiculous. So stop withe the "LeBron had no one" crap because he did have 2 other all stars on his team and his team did have the best record. If your looking to blame someone, blame LeBron, he quit on his team. LeBron is the definition of a quitter.

    Bron isn't the GOAT, and doesnt care to be. He wants to win as many championships as possible.

    Bron isn't taking the "Kobe approach" to this, and trying to do whatever he can to surpass MJ's legacy. He's doing whatever he can to win and create his own legacy. The more he wins, the better his legacy will get, and he knows that winning is what matters, not scoring 35 ppg for a season, or having 81 point games.

    Lebron quit because he was tired of the coach's video game style of play 1 on 5... This isnt Live 07, HE didnt match up with the Celts right andhe made dumb decisions... They did fire the coach but Lebron was already fed up with it and saw a better opportunity
