So much fake news in one single post

There is no 'deserve' when it comes to retiring numbers since it can be for any reason.

All teams should do what the Lakers do and retire the numbers of players who get into the hall of the fame. right now some teams retire anybody. vlade has his number retired in Sac :

They were down 4 with like 6 minutes left and LeBron gave them a 2 point lead, you fucking idiot. Scored 11 in the 4th Q, had the game saving block, and the title clinching FT.

3:39 left on the clock, game tied at 89
3:00 lebron wasting shot clock, missed layup
2:45 lebron defers to Klove, Klove miss
1:57 Kyrie miss
1:51 lebron block on iggy
1:26 lebron wasting shot clock, missed shot
1:14 Curry missed shot, amazing Kyrie defense
0:53 Kryie with 3 pointer and biggest shot of the series. 92-89 cavs
0:33 Amazing defense by Klove on Curry, missed shot
0:18 Lebron fouled
0:11 Kyrie with a beautiful pass to Lebron who misses the dunk, fouled
0:10 Lebron making 1 shaky FT
finals seconds Curry missed shot with Shumpert on him, Speights missed shot, game over

Title clinching FT Lebron did nothing in the final 4 minutes of play other than defer, miss shots, get a chase down block, and make a shaky FT that didn't even matter because they were up 3 and GSW never scored more than 89 thanks to Kyrie and Love's amazing defense and the chase down block.

Sorry, but it's a game 7 on the biggest stage and the final 4 minutes in a tied game. Gotta do more than that if you're the "best player in the world."

Bron was mentally shook AF in those final 4 minutes, and it showed. Kyrie was a stone cold assassin and did what needed to be done.

This thread is about Kyrie's banner, please keep your obsession of Lebron out these threads Egokiller.

I know it's hard for you, but noone reads your lengthy redundant 1000 character meltdowns as it already is

LeBron was the reason they were actually in the game, you ****ing braindead moron. If it wasn't for LeBron, the Warriors would've blown out the Cavs and they would've had a 3peat. LeBron was bay far the best play in the 4th Q from both teams and it wasn't close. Not only did he score the most points from both teams, he scored 8 straight at one point. He also had made the FT, which essentially ended the series. Kyrie did nothing in the 4th Q other than hit that lucky 3. Love, in fact, played better defense than Kyrie in that 4th Q. That just shows how bad Kyrie was.



I know that you're a middle school dropout working as a janitor, but even for you, that picture shouldn't be too hard to comprehend.

No one is talking about the entire 4th Q you brain dead idiot. I know your reading comprehension is messed up from all those cab fumes and you and missed it the first two times, so I'll spell it out for you again. I'm talking about the last 4 minutes of the game when the game was tied at 89. As a superstar, you have to do more in that situation other than a block and a shaky FT. It doesn't matter what you did the previous 8 minutes. You still have to be mentally ready for those final minutes. Lebron was mentally shook AF against a team with 3 injured stars and it showed. If Kyrie doesn't hit the 3, there's no momentum and it completely changes the end game and here you are talking about Lebron's shaky FT like it somehow was a game ender when they were already up by 3 points.

Cavs retired Thurmond's number and he only played the last couple seasons of his career there. The squad that brought the city of LA their 1st title had 4 guys (Baylor on a technicality but still) who've had their numbers retired, inc Wilt who played 5 seasons.

I understand leaving on a sour note and joining the Celtics, but the Cavs did try to trade him in the first place which caused him to leave so there's that. The two could still be reunited at some point later in his career.

And even if they don't, it should be no more a detriment than LeBron ring chasing and doing them dirty, esp when considering Kyrie was part of the reason LeBron thought he could win a title in Cleveland after the Spurs'd embarrassed his Miami team prior to his bolting back.

Was curious and you got me reading the play-by-play

In the final 6 minutes Curry really went 0/5 LMAO and a crucial turnover where LeBron goes back and nails a 3 essentially putting the Cavs up for good, no wonder this kid Wardell hasn't sniffed a FMVP vote

I know the toilet fumes at your day job are turning your already retarded brain into a mush, so this must be really hard for you to understand. LeBron hit the 3 which gave the Cavs a 2 point lead with 4:53 left in series. As a SUPERSTAR, LeBron carried the Cavs in the entire 4th Q and saved the series with his block on Iggy and series and title clinching FT. The Warriors had 3 injured stars? Well, the Cavs had an injured Love, LeBron, Irving, JR, Shump, and TT. Pretty much their entire starting lineup was injured.

The Cavs were also up 3 points against the greatest 3pt shooting team the world has ever seen with nearly a minute left in the game. Again, you might be too dumb to remember, but do you recall G6 of the '13 Finals when Miami was down 5 with 28 seconds left?

Time to ditch this alt and go on to the next one, you sad sack of shit.
