LeBron’s empty fingers …

I’m not one of these guys who gets into sports legacies and such. LeBron is a great player whether he wins 10 titles or zero. It goes without saying.

That said, the kid has definitely set himself up for the mocking of images like the one above. Such is what happens when you announce your signing in the fashion LeBron did, then boast and brag and puff our your chest as he, Wade and Bosh did in that ludicrous Welcome to Miami gala X months ago.

I’ve got no beef with James. He’s a marvelous player, and beneath the glitz he doesn’t seem like a bad guy. But he sorta deserves this. If you talk the talk, then fail to walk to walk … well. Hey.

That said, what a fabulous Finals series. I haven’t cared about the NBA all year, but, man, amazing. Tremendous action, tremendous drama and … Dirk. Stupendous.

  1. How about this gem from James:

    “All the people that were rooting me on to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before,” James said. “They have the same personal problems they had to today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want with me and my family and be happy with that.”

    “They can get a few days or a few months or whatever the case may be on being happy that not only myself, but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal,” James said. “But they’ll have to get back to the real world at some point.”

  2. he’s the A-Rod of basketball.
    great talent but always seems to find a way to do or say the wrong thing at the wrong time.

  3. he was underwhelming in the finals because he never could dislodge his foot from his mouth.

    Heard he said something like it didn’t bother him after losing game 6. Maybe context is everything but the truly greats worked on facets of their game every offseason. He went to South Beach…
