EOD: Guy is just a freaking fantastic writer and even the Twitter stuff was funny for awhile, guy just didn't know when to quit the schtick.Spot on.And it wasn't just a Twitter act. Guy was a somewhat regular guest on LeBatard throughout the year, and ILO was making a fool of himself as he continued his, as you accurately describe, "Schtik" all season long. A great writer, along with great research is a winner - I just think he may have hurt himself with people who don't already recognize these facts. The ridiculous way he acted could easily cause him to simply be dismissed by a segment of people who otherwise might be interested in the book. Basically, if you ween't a hard core Lebron hater - almost to an irrational degree, not sure you're on the bandwagon.

"Maybe the ones burning my jersey were never LeBron fans anyway."Exactamente, you megalomanical shitheel. Those were- they are--Cleveland fans. They burned their jerseys right after your hour-longESPN smarm-fest, when the whole world saw you for the stunted, soul-dead bumpkin you are. Those Cleveland fans knew for the first time what utter fools they had been to believe that LeBron James ever gave a damn about anything but LeBron James. And because they were born and grew up and will die Cleveland fans, those fans also instantly grasped your legacy as a Cavalier: You will forever be the player who choked and quit against the Celtics in the 2009-2010 playoffs. You surrendered. You gave up. You and your team- while the clock still ran, with the coach urging you on- quit trying, laid down and died.For that disgrace alone, those fans were right to burn the stinking jerseys they themselves had paid for. Add the disdain and the disrespect you showed for Cleveland fans as Jim gray and Michael Wilbon fellated you on national TV- not a single question about your playoff tank job or the phantom elbow injury that floated in the same ether as the rumors of your mother's sexual dalliance with one of your teammates-hell, those fans should have torched your jerseys with you and your sycophant posse wearing them.

LeBron was a huge star. He was as big as I was in 2000 in L.A. when I was dominating the league. … Our coach, Mike Brown, was a nice guy, but he had to live on edge because nobody was supposed to be confrontational with LeBron. Nobody wanted him to leave Cleveland, so he was allowed to do whatever he wanted to do. I remember one day in a film session LeBron didn’t get back on defense after a missed shot. Mike Brown didn’t say anything about it. He went to the next clip and it was Mo Williams not getting back and Mike was saying, “Yo, Mo, we can’t have that. You’ve got to hustle a little more.” So Delonte West is sitting there and he’s seen enough and he stands up and says, “Hold up, now. You can’t be pussyfooting around like that. Everyone has to be accountable for what they do, not just some us.” Mike Brown said, “I know, Delonte. I know.” Mike knew Delonte was right. … I’m not sure if Kobe is going to listen to Mike Brown. LeBron never really did. Here’s what we do know: Kobe will definitely be in charge.

YahooFanChicago wrote:Peek, not sure whether I understand your prior post. Are you saying that Raab writes in his book that Mav Carter proactively created those false rumors and leaked them to the press so that Lebron would have a pre-established built-in excuse for his impending failures? Is that what he writes? If so, does he mention anything about whether Lebron was aware of this? If that is true it is way more wacked than even I previously thought.
