Then on the last play he started talking again when he saw Lebron inbounding the ball, instead him being on the floor to take the last shot. Hopefully D-wade stays healthy and they get favorable matchups they can steamroll all the way to a title, because Lebron wants no part of a close game, clearly.
Yeah, they mentioned it on the telecast that if they were looking for a 3-pointer, especially on that last play, Lebron should've been an option and not the one inbounding. He already hit 6 threes in the game, whereas Wade only hit/took one all season. I don't know if that was a coaches decision or Lebron's but that wasn't a smart move. Especially when Carmelo was open on a few of those last possessions.

Wait, were we even watching the same game? Didn't LeBron go off in the 4th? He had a bad turnover yeah, but for whatever freakin' reason, a play was drawn up to give Wade the last shot? What the heck? I don't care if LBJ missed the last shot to put it into overtime 'cause he already led the charge back into the game but what the heck was he doing throwing the ball in on the inbounds play?

I think even Kobe was giving him some that he was throwing the ball inbounds. Lame.

Only LeBron could get criticized for not jacking up a 35 footer while double covered in a glorified exhibition.

Nobody is going to confuse his last Finals appearance with anything other than underwhelming, but it's as if it mindwiped everyone to the preceding series against Boston and Chicago, both of which had numerous tight moments in the 4th where he excelled without sign of psychological issues, being afraid of the clutch or whatever the hell else people tell themselves. I suppose it was Mo Williams and Anderson Varejao closing games in Cleveland all those years too. GMAFB.

Love Derrick Rose's reaction there...Would take him 10 out of 10 times in the clutch game of the line moment. Lebron has not been the same since his Finals run.

When you give yourself the nickname King James and proclaim yourself as the best basketball player in the world and choke in a ASG you deserve to be critized. Do not matter if he led the comeback they still lost, whats the point of a comeback if you still lose? And therefore its not a comeback cause they lost the game.

I'd loved how Rose acted during the intros. I was so glad he didn't play along with those other idiots, bouncing around like morons.

I think Rose just didn't want to strain his back, that's all. Next year he'll be doin' the Dougie or Jeremy Lin will be in his place having some fun.

Oh like that game against the Heat where he missed those free throws. Yup.

He might miss, but at least he'll take the damn shot.

Lebron did the same and people got on him "What the hell is he doing, give it to Wade!" everytime he missed. Now apparently it's "What the hell are you doing passing it to Wade?!" I mean, if he wasn't a bazillionaire and a douchebag, I'd almost feel sorry for the guy.

Speaking of Rose...He just made a clutch jumper to take the lead to end this game.

Yeah, but it was against the Hornets in a game that shouldn't have been that damn close to begin with.

Also, he missed the free throw that woulda gave everybody a free Big Mac.

I don't wanna bring the conversation back to he-who-everyone-hates-apparently, but was LeBron ever criticized for his late game performances when he was in CLE? It just seems like this came from the Finals last year and his last playoff series with CLE. I definitely remember a playoff game against Detroit in '07 considered to be one of the greatest clutch performances ever. Not to mention him spanking the Wizards every other year in the playoffs.

Oh yeah. People talked all the time about how he'd never win a championship in CLE because he's not a clutch player.

Yet they still find a way to win.

I wouldn't count that as a victory just yet.

PoP ain't the best coach in the league for nothin'.
