  1. Pretty sure Freeman is a mere 24, not 29. Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Friday against the Diamondbacks. Freeman had RBI singles in the first and seventh innings. The 29-year-old has knocked in nine runs over his last eight games to bring his total up to 46 for the year. The Braves have won eight straight games and are now 10 games above .500 at 48-38.
  2. When did everything turn into a Kawhi vs George debate? Lol. I will respectfully disagree with your choice though.
  3. Actually, it's the Lebron haters who always seem to have their "panties in a bunch", whining and complaining about Lebron, finding every angle to diminish his achievements and beating the dead horse on all his failures. Meanwhile, the guy is a two-time champ, a class act on and off the floor, and he's never gotten into any trouble. He's not a total class act. The Decision wasn't a class act, nicknaming himself "The Chosen One" and "King James" wasn't classy either. That's pretty much narcissism. Overall he's been a great role model but he has his flaws of making everything about himself time and time again.
  4. pretty much Why is Joe Montana considered the best ever and not Peyton Manning? He went 4 for 4 and put up dominant numbers in his Super Bowls while Peyton played poorly in his Super Bowls, especially that last one. Losses DO matter to some extent. Like it or not people, they DO matter somewhat.
  5. All that matters is 2 rings. 2 Finals MVPs. You win some, you lose some. it's hard to win in this league. He'll have more chances in the future. Losses count too. Gotta take the good with the bad. There's a reason why Jordan is widely considered the best ever. 6 for 6, with the highest career regular season and post season scoring averages.
  6. I just thought it was funny. So to the LeBron lovers, don't get your panties in a bunch.
  7. Tim Duncan ties Kobe Bryant with 5. But I'd rather have Duncan over Kobe.
  8. I think he's pretty much given up himself. He can stay in the game if he really wants to. I didn't see him put up any kind of fight. It's over.
  9. No. He has potential to be, but he isn't the playmaker PG is.
  10. It's wrong to criticize a player. Everybody should say nothing but positive things about a player. Is LeBron untouchable or something? He brings it upon himself in many cases. Sometimes it's fair, sometimes it isn't. I defended him over the cramps, but the fact LeBron likes to make everything about himself and loves the spotlight a little too much for his own good, I won't defend him for that.
  11. LeBron has brought a lot of the hate on himself for all the things he's done in his career. He just needs to keep his mouth shut and play ball. Tim Duncan is the perfect role model for that. He's never once tried to grab the spot light, or show off, or begged for the microphone and camera to be on him.
  12. They've played great. Duncan is the most underrated HOFer I've personally seen in sports. He gets little attention, mostly because of his personality, or lack of one. Duncan for Finals MVP if the Spurs win another one and the contributions by the players are similar to the games so far. Kawhi arguably deserves it also, but Duncan is the heart and anchor of the team. His numbers are not the best, but his presence is definitely most valuable. Spurs have a chance without Kawhi, but no chance without Duncan. Plus, while watching this game, I notice how the Spurs do not show their emotion on their sleeves. No ceremonies after 3's. No screaming and strutting. That's gotta be the Duncan factor. His tutelage is all over this team. Kawhi after monster put back jam - quietly jogs back for defense. Kawhi absolutely takes Wade's lunch money in 3rd quarter - no screams a la Westbrook. Another day at the office, doing his job, just like Duncan. I personally like Kawhi to win the MVP for this particular Finals. He's been a star. I think the Spurs will close this out in Game 5 in San Antonio. There's nothing sweeter than winning a title at home. Heat and their "Big 3" are being embarrassed by The Big Fundamentals.
  13. The Spurs in general just seem to be one of those highly underrated teams every year. They get attention, but not as much as the Clippers, Rockets, Warriors, and Thunder do. Those teams have all the shiny new toys while the Spurs are the older team without any big personalities. They don't have lob city, or Harden and Dwight, or Steph Curry's outrageous shooting, or Durant and Westbrook. All they have is good old "boring" basketball the way it's supposed to be played.
  14. They've played great. Duncan is the most underrated HOFer I've personally seen in sports. He gets little attention, mostly because of his personality, or lack of one. He's no Michael Jordan though. No he isn't. Way to still not defend the Game 3 performance as you cowardly avoid that. All you do is keep poking at other things I've said.

  16. Do you even live in America? LeBron was loved before The Decision by a lot of people. The second he did that, he became one of the most disliked athletes in America for taking the easy way out and making everything about himself. Way to not defend his Game 3 performance by the way.
  17. Cool Narrative Bro. 4 straight finals appearances and 2 rings, 4 MVPs. Yeah, he's not that good. Again, you're the only one arguing about Jordan in an NBA Finals thread for 2014 when nobody is arguing against you saying Lebron is better. Seriously, way too much Skip Baylessing for a rotoworld forum post. Cool way to twist words. I never said he wasn't great or not that good. Gotta love when people put false words into the mouth of others. Anyway, I hope the Spurs finish this off. And for the record. Skip Bayless like him or not, has said facts about LeBron. "On Wednesday's show, I dared to place the bulk of the NBA Finals Game 3 blame on LeBron, who in the final three quarters contributed 8 points, 7 turnovers and zero free throw attempts and became strangely disengaged on offense, even as Miami cut a 25-point lead to seven late in the third quarter. My debate partner, Stephen A. Smith, condemned me for being "so disrespectful" and let LeBron off the hook by saying he "looked tired." The world's greatest and fittest athlete got tired after a sensational first quarter (14 points on 5-of-6 shooting, 2-for-2 on 3s, 2 free throws) of a pivotal Game 3 in His House? Skip Bayless also said Lebron would never win a ring multiple times. But as long as I know you actually give credence to a troll like Bayless, I'm comfortable ending this discourse. Ok, go ahead and defend 8 points, 7 turnovers, and 0 FT attempts in Game 3 then. What happened to him there? He completely disappeared for 75 percent of the game. Skip unlike most of America, hasn't kissed LeBron's butt all his career (even in his lovable Cleveland days) so he gets hate. Nobody is correct 100 percent of the time, including you.

  19. 1997-98 Bulls/Jazz? Exactly. Jordan didn't know what failure was like in the NBA Finals. Looks like LeBron is about to taste it for the 3rd time, 2 coming when he had all the help in the world. Pretty sure Lebron is doing his part. Wade 3-13 , starting 1-10 and the starters shooting 32% "all the help in the world"? It's a team game. Wouldn't put this on Lebron, it is a team game...Spurs are looking like the much better team. The last time Jordan lost a finals game was against Utah in 1998. The Bulls only scored 81 points and Tony Kukoc (30) scored more points than the other 4 Heat starters tonight. LeBron has plenty of help now compared to Cleveland. He's made it to 4 straight finals, and is about to lose his 3rd NBA Finals. Jordan had help, and he dominated and never lost. Heat have no excuses. Did you even watch the games or are you just pulling crap out just so you can compare two guys from two different eras whom played in two different situations? People compare those 2 all the time. Blame ESPN and LeBron himself. He was the won who declared himself the chosen one, wore 23 and did the powder toss like Mike.

Again, not saying Lebron is better than Jordan, that part is clear. However going from "all the help in the world" to changing your statement to "compared to Cleveland" is pretty ridiculous. Those are two separate and much different statements. Lebron is playing the best of anyone in the finals. It's tough to make a run to the finals 4 years in a row with virtually the same roster. Jordan took about 2 years off in between, believe me, it matters. The better team is winning. I don't know, just weird how peolpe keep making sorry excuses for LeBron and his failures. He couldn't win in Cleveland, fine. I understand that. He cowardly teamed up with 2 big stars when they were in their primes and did great, but still found a way to blow vs the Mavs. in fact, that entire series he did nothing but disappear in the entire 4th quarter. I remember that very well because the media everywhere was bashing him for him not showing up in the 4th quarter at all. Now he's about to lose again, and people are making more excuses to defend him. He already lost his shot at being the best ever, mostly because Jordan never lost in the Finals, and didn't disappear in the 4th quarter.

  23. Enough of this "Big 3" crap. There's nothing big time about Wade or Bosh anymore. They've been essentially useless.
  24. Usually he waits until the 4th quarter to have injuries.
