Lebron James..you are the greatest basketball talent on Earth. Bigger, stronger, and faster than most mere mortals. You are having an MVP season. There is only one more thing you need to do. When it comes down to the last shot..SHOOT THE D— BALL !!
I’m sure I speak for all Heat fans in saying this. You were unconscious in leading the Heat back from a huge deficit in Utah. Nobody could stop you. So why in the final four seconds, when your team is down one did you pass it to Udonis Haslem. I love U-D, but I would rather you shoot the ball with two guys on you than him wide open.
Lebron, you did the same thing in the All-Star game..ruining an MVP-type performance by passing up the last shot, and throwing the ball away. I don’t care if you miss in those situations. SHOOT THE D— BALL !!
Erik Spolestra..I understand you going to Lebron in that situation, he had been your hot hand. However, until he proves he is willing to SHOOT THE D— BALL in that situation, give the ball to Dwyane Wade. He won’t hesitate to shoot. If he doesn’t make it, odds are he will draw a foul. I guess we should point out that if Wade had made both free throws seconds before, Lebron would not have been put in that situation. Frankly, tho, that is besides the point.
A team’s best player MUST be willing to SHOOT THE D— BALL !! when the game is on the line. Can you imagine Kobe Bryant passing up a last second shot to pass to Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) ? How about Kevin Durant passing up the last shot for Serge Ibaka. No way. Both of those guys would SHOOT THE D— BALL !!
Lebron..please, follow Nike’s advice..and just do it. You gotta get over this mental hump of shying away from taking the last shot. No explanations, please. If you miss…I can live with that. Just SHOOT THE D— BALL !!
