LeBron didn't show up, Bosh wasn't that great, so who do you think carried Miami through the Finals? You just can't stand Wade, so you think he's one of the worst players ever and wasn't good in anything.

He was obviously the best player on the Heat in the series, but that's not really saying much.

Dirk was the best player in the series. He got it done when it counted most.

It was Lebron who actually closed out Game 1, he was player of the game there.

In Game 3 Wade was the man, he closed out, though it was Bosh who hit the gamewinning shot (of Lebrons behind the back pass).

In especially Game 5 & 6 Wade played worse than Lebron both in the game and in the 4th quarter.

Both didnt do so super well in the clutch, for Lebron it was specifically that 8 point game that screwed up his PPG the most, which in 2-4 games can take down your average dramatically even if you had a 30-40 point game before that.

Gotta give it up for Mavs aswell, they did a great job. Even Kobe played bad against that Mavs team earlier in the 1st round, 23-2-2 and got swept, which you could say is worse than what Lebron did in the Finals.

He saw that Wade was on pace for the Finals MVP, so he did his best to sabotage that.

LeBron is more embarrassed by the label of sidekick than losing in the Finals.

Lol at the spin on this. Lebron quit plain and simple. Had to be one of the weakest finals performances that I've ever witnessed

LeBron already won a Finals MVP at the of age 27 yrs.old. He already redeemed himself in the NBA Finals.

This has to be the dumbest theory about Lebron's lackluster finals performance. Lebron wanted to win rings joining Miami, not win in a certain way cause if he did he wouldn't have joined them in the first place.
