Much Ado?

I didn't see the first quarter of the T-Wolves game.

Is this another "LeBron farted and it's news", or was it a tantrum or just BS?????????

Nothing. Nothing at all.

LBJ is a drama queen. Just like Kobe.

I think he was lucky he didn't get a second "T" for that. He went to the basket, got molested by two guys (replays showed contact but not too bad, IMhO), lost the ball, and was complaining at the ref all the way back down the floor. The ref T-d him up and MB immediately took him out of the game. On his way to his seat, he kicked a water bottle pretty hard and then sat down. At the time, I thought he was sure to get another T and be gone for the game. Not surprised to see the fine.

Actually talked to someone that was in row 2 behind the Cavs bench and he thought it was real bad.

LBJ is one of the biggest whiners in the league, period. He is repeatedly pummeled during contests but his ability to whine and cry has been beneficial, especially at the defensive end where he isn't being called for much and his avg. fouls per game is at or near an all-time low. All the stars complain and he's no exception, been doing it since SVSM days. I was hoping he would shake hands with the people it was kicked toward. :hide:
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

Was funny watching the woman that got splashed in the face wipe it off and grin a little bit, as if to say, "Oh well, comes with these seats"

Makes a great story for friends. Similar to one of the people who got made into a Shaq pancake later in that game when he decided to go crowd surfing.

I think this is right on. Numerous times when LB seems to not be getting fouls, he'll go down with one of his horrbly, but only temporarily, twisted ankles, but then will get some calls he hadn't been getting. It's scary, and then funny, but the refs seem to understand he's dramatizing what really could happen if they don't protect him a little more.

OTOH, the water bottle thing seemed a little ugly toward the fans, and I was actually glad they slapped his wrists with a fine.

Would have made a great story if someone had gotten hurt from the bottle. Or if it hit somebody's kid.

Before you laugh and say "like something could get hurt from a water bottle..." stranger things have happened.
