Is LeBron James unappreciated? Papa GM believes so
Lebron James was awesome Thursday night.
Putting aside the earned disapproval he rightfully received for the tactless way he orchestrated his exit from The Forest City (Cleveland), I think its time to end the undeserved criticism routinely aimed his way for no good reason.
Disrespecting references like, he “has no heart,” “chokes at crunch time,” “doesn’t have the kick ‘em in the head killer gene,” etc., are all nonsense. He is who he is; and, from what I can see that’s good enough to win a championship if management can provide the right support and he can help his coach establish a “play hard 48 minutes, trust each other” chemistry among the players.
It is time to acknowledge and appreciate LeBron James’ many talents and his integrity on the floor; he plays the game the way Gentleman Jim Corbett performed in the ring – kicking ass with dignity.
It is also time to concede that his off-court behavior and message to youth is commendable.
However, I do not believe they can defeat the OKC Thunder.
We shall see.
