I swear to Christ, I could come here and say "The sun rises in the East," and you'd call it a POS take.If ANYONE else here- Aoxo, Pup, Peek, Madre- said, "LeBron needs to get down on the post" you'd either, a.) agree or b.) not say anything at all.But of course I said it, so you have to ridicule it.It'd be great to have a discussion here without personal animus getting in the way. But that's just not the way it is, I guess. So be it.

jb wrote:Oh don't pout. I think you are on a jihad against Bron becasue of his doozbaggery self cenbteredness, and I coulda laid off the enoticons I guess. Piling on.But think about it Jessse. OIt is a guards league now. No one runs a two man low post game anymore. It is a game of moevemnt. Bron is far, far more valuable playing outside and driving than standing around like George Mikan waiting for the inlet pass. The game has changed. He gets doubled too much to do the Barkley / dantly butt back in. He has far more skills than that. maybe in 5 seasons when he loses a step changing his game to that of Karl Malone might make sense, but not nopw. He needs to be a more consistent outside shooter and not so streakey. When he's on, he is literally unstoppable. About the last think he needs to work on is a classic 1970's blcoks' game.Therefore, coupling that with, ironically, your personal animus hating in Bron for off the courset reasons, I dissed your take.But I don't have a hate on for you Jesse. Now excuse me while I go off to make fun of Peeker supportying you. ;-)PPS - sorry you took the post so hard. didn't mean it as more than balll breaking and not agreeing with your take. Nothing more.

Please address why Larry Hughes was as much a joke after he left as when he was here. Please address how Mo Williams was anything other than one dimensional prior to arriving here and will be when he leaves. Please address how Gil Arenas pounding the floor with the ball for five years in Washington killed the game of Antawn Jamison. Please address why Jamison shot 50% in March and April while LeBron made things so difficult for him and how the Garnett size and length didn't bother him.I mean, you keep telling us how LBJ kills talented players. Is it possible that you deem them to be talented because of James (Hughes) or maybe they're not as talented as you think they are (Mo) or maybe it was actually the talented player's shortcomings and issues that caused them to fall on their face in a given series (Jamison).Yeah, he pounds the ball too much and is whiny, pouting, diva bitch. The guys you named still thrived in that environment until the Celtics series when James truly stood around and then quit.Give us something aside from your unsubstantial one sentence replies that as often as not end in a question. Shake yourself. Or don't. Seriously, it doesn't matter. I really don't care.If I look hard enough round here I can find a discussion as opposed to a snippet from the Mount where you give us headlines and support it with air.Educate us.

Orenthal wrote:It is a lack of any post game, and not, he should play the whole game in the post. He is willing to become a jump shooter at times, is relentless at going to the hole at times, but is almost never a post guy.The few times he has gone to the post for more then a couple possessions in a row he usually would get good looks, but due to never actually playing with his back to the basket, doesn't finish well.Also with the minutes Shaq played, LeBron could have been jump shooter or drive and finish during that time. Oh, but remember how clogged the paint was , maybe just a jump shooter...

Orenthal wrote:jb I only need to see it mixed in, not taking over. Sure if he wanted to improve by not pounding the ball away at the 3pt line, and instead initiating off passes received from the elbow, I'd care less about back to the basket post game. My only point is that when it comes down to an elite defense he can, and has been stopped. She cooks? Now I'm down... :)
