    As much as i hate to admit it, he gave a pretty classy post-game presser, and complimented PP over and over . . .

    Yeah I agree somewhat reluctantly. LeBron was gracious and complimentary, and mostly what I like, he seemed almost human. Said some nice things about Detroit and talked about how crazy he is about the game of basketball itself. He said there was no chance that he would miss watching a playoff game. Ball crazy! Like a fan. As Kobe is, LeBron is so much easier to tolerate when he has lost and is humbled (as much as it is possible to humble a King).:)

    Apparently LeBron had 38 turnovers for the series, passing Barkley for the record for a 7-game series. That's a lot of turnovers, but I can't think of anyone in the league who has the ball in his hands for more minutes per game.

    Good points on LeBron`s post game interview.

    One thing that stuck out during that interview is James saying they need to get better. To me that indicates the 4 players that came wasn`t enough, or can`t get it done.

    Also, he does not trust his teamates enough right now. Also, IMO he missed Boobie. He may be the one player he trusts more than anyone on that team, to take a big shot.

    This is the one part of Lebron I hate.

    Pierce spit at him and harassed him and other Cavs at dinner during a pre season game.

    Why does he have to be such an $$$ kisser.

    Pierce is a punk and he never gets the blame for anything. It was 50% his fault that series went to game 7. The other 50% belongs to the complete lack of production from Ray Allen. Yet because he showed up once because the refs bailed him out not everyone is back to giving him all the damn credit.

    Just look at the stats. Pierce did nothing when he wasn't bailed out by the refs and that is why the Cavs lost game 7. I hate how everyone gives him a free pass. (Pierce)

    Most of the series all the Celtic did was attack Lebron. That is how they won the series because they only had one player to deal with. Wally just plain sucks. Delonte is still young and has the basketball IQ of a wet dog (not a good thing for your PG) and Z just didn't show up )though he tried)
    Luckily Detroit has more weapons.

    I noticed that. Very weak display of sportsmanship on national TV on his part.

    I think he went to have a good cry in the locker room. He looked like he was going to lose it in the last minute a few times. Nothing shameful about an athlete not wanting the world to witness a display of emotion.

    Funny thing is that Wally Z who had been big in previous games was a no show in this one...I guess Labron took all of his three ball shots. :) (LBJ was 3-11 from beyond the arc!!!) Big Z hardly made an impact either and Sideshow Bob only grab 2 boards. Surprised that the coach never played Devin Brown the whole series either?? (he may be our AA)

    <Getting ready to duck.>

    Yep, utterly classless by LBJ. Reminds me of a certain Pistons' team from a few years ago...

    Where was Wally to end this game. I caught the last few minutes of this game and Sczerbiak wasn't on the floor. One of their best shooters. They went with Damon Jones instead?

    Pierce teamed up with Delonte West and formed one of the worst teams in the L. James got to G7 of the 2nd round with him. If he had a consistent shot..............

    I am upset CLE lost. I could handle losing to them if it came to it. I won't be able to deal with it if they lose to BOS. The C's make TO or any NFL cornerback seem reserved. I've never seen someone flex and pump their fist after calling a timeout before. Nice job. It was a lot of fun to watch all the members of the fist pump club running from the ball at the end though. PJ Brown putting back the 2 air balls saved them.

    It's really too bad there had to be a winner in this series.

    Wally missed 3 shots and was benched?? I don't recall seeing him in the 4t qtr at all. Like I said, with La Bron taking eleven three pointers, Wally probably still would not received the ball anyway. In the end, the only person the king trusted was Boobie who was strapped to the bench..:) [STRIKE]last year he milked Boobie for three ball shots[/STRIKE] Ok you get the picture:):)
