Yeah, he had a poor Finals, but the guy is probably the most talented player in the League..

Choking is when a highly favored team falls to a team of supposed 'lesser' personnel.

When it is an almost universal consensus that the Spurs are going to win a series in 4 or 5 games and they win it in 4, that is not a choke. If the Spurs would have LOST, that would have been a choke.

A choke is what Dallas did against Golden State. A choke is what Detroit did against Cleveland.

God, you're stupid.

Look, LeBron could've played better, but it was a team failure, coupled with the fact that they were playing a very good, veteran team who had "been there, done that." It is indeed disappointing, but every great athlete in their career has to face something like this during the course of their career. It's called "overcoming adversity"

No... the Spurs were simply a better team and they were able to focus on Lebron and stifle him. Choking would be if Lebron and Co. had been favored to win the series and lost.

The Cavs overachieved last year. Anyone that argues otherwise is a dunce.

Why is it that when I defend one of these guys, I'm always grouped into one of these arbitrary factions... A Lebron fanatic, a Kobe groupie, a Wade apologist. Are you people so incapable of putting together sound arguments that you have no choice but to resort to personal yet baseless attacks? It's quite pathetic.

Since when am I one of the worst Lebron fanatics known to mankind? Please, explain.

LeBron had to deal with constant double teams and a very poor supporting cast.

Could he have played better? Of course

One of the worst performances ever? Ha.

Put ANY player in that situation, with no supporting cast and being double teamed most possesions( including Bruce Bowen) and they wouldnt have played to their full potential.

You're actually the worst poster on ISH.

Lebron should be praised for getting his team that far. He was HEROIC against the Pistons. Yes, he had a sub-par championship series, but it was valiant to get there, imo. His greatness should not be diminished by that championship. It should be elevated for being IN that championship.
Much like it was valiant for Kobe to drag his team into the playoffs the last two years. Can't really expect him to beat the Suns, but should be praised for getting there.
