Bosh and Love both recorded the highest TS% of their careers playing with LeBron.




Mamba meltdown.

Excuse for what?

Who is looking for excuses for the most successful periods of a guys career?

Excuses are for bad things. None of the shit you’re talking about matters in any way but the superficial. Those guys were popping champagne running around going crazy having reached the pinnacle of their sport. Dennis Johnson wasn’t all nba first team and scoring 20 a game on the Sonics or Celtics title teams but if he’d stayed in Phoenix doing that you wouldn’t even know his name. Harvey Grant got to be the Bullets leading scorer. Horace Grant got to win rings. Virtually nobody even knows Harvey Grant existed.

You’re worried about shit losers play for.

What are you even rambling about? Bosh's most memorable moment as LeBron's teammate was scoring 0 points in a game 7. Love averaged 9 ppg on 36% shooting against GS when the Cavs won the title.

These guys turned into complete shells of their former selves playing next to LeBron. I'm simply asking if the same is going to happen to AD, another 25 year old big man in his prime.

I have no idea what you're even trying to argue here. Yes, I'm sure they're very happy they were both on stacked teams and acquired some hardware as a result. Somehow that just completely negates the fact that they became worse basketball players during the "most successful periods" of their career?

You think you are worse at basketball when you go from first option to third?

Your years watching basketball lead you to that conclusion?

And Love is gonna remember that finals a lot more fondly than 28ppg December’s his team went 4-9 in I assure you. And the way Bosh poured that champagne on himself like a porn shoot? I suspect he enjoyed it more than 7 years winning 3 or whatever playoff games in Toronto.

And if Davis wins a ring doing 22 a game instead of 26 the same will be true for him.

Not that it’s likely.....but you’re talking about shit that doesn’t matter to anyone worth calling a competitor.

No, my years of watching Bosh in Miami and Love in Cleveland led me to that conclusion.

Go watch a random game from Bosh 2010 or KLove 2014 and then watch one from their LeBron days and tell me that one version isn't better than the other.

We all know the answer.

Only losers sit with their grand kids talking numbers they averaged on teams that went nowhere.

Its nice to be Shareef Abdur-Rahim...or Kelly Tripuka....Truck Robinson.

But only the most serious fans remember your name. Trade 4-8 points for rings when you get paid the same either way.

Bosh and Love were paid max money after they won rings with Lebron. What the hell are they worried about? Hundreds of millions of dollars and 8 finals trips with 3 rings between them and a much higher profile than they had on losing teams before that.

From where do they summon the will to go on in life.....

You dont go play with the guy likely to end up a top 3 all time scorer in his prime....with an additional superstar guard in both cases....and expect the same numbers. You expect worse numbers and more winning....aka....what happened.


Dumb point.

Love has been nothing but shit on after winning rings. He was universally regarded as far superior when he was in minny playing his game.

Bosh ditto Toronto

Kblaze can't admit their roles were totally decimated.

Forget stats...they couldn't play their games. Two of the highest ppp post and midrange face up talents in the game reduced to spot up 3pt shooting.

smh...

I'm sure Kevin Love will take being a 3rd star who won a championship coming back from a 1-3 deficit vs an all time 73 win team over not being remembered whatsoever as he lead the Timberwolves over and over and over and over and over again to the lottery. Also, why is so hard for you clowns to understand that roles change when you go from being the 1st option to a 3rd option. Take your head out of Bran's ass and have some common sense. All your dumb shit goes out the window anyway when Kyrie and a healthy Wade were still doing their thing when playing with LeBron. Love and Bosh of course had to naturally take a backseat role playing with these 3 players. It also shouldn't be surprising they were expected to stretch the floor playing with with them either when all three were using a lot of dribble penetration.
