As we all know by now, LeBron James returned to Cleveland for the first game since last year’s embarrassing playoff performance. There was much talk about the reception James would receive from the Cavs fans and for the most part they lived up to expectations. All types of chants of “Scottie Pippen” and “Akron Hates You” rain down on the former King Cavalier. With all the boos and jeers LeBron calmly knocked down his first jumper and from that point on the King once again ruled the court.
By the end of the 3rd quarter the occupants of the Quicken Loans Arena were all WITNESSES; the boos that were once defeating at the beginning of the game continued but at a much lower level. As the Cavs played the role of court jester in King James Court I recalled comments made by Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith before the game; they made reference to that LeBron’s leaving Cavs for the Heat was basically a statement against his former Cavs teammates. In simple terms, James was saying they were not good enough for him to win a championship. I remember thinking that was a pretty harsh statement, but at the same time that it has some truth to it… also I was wondering how his ex mates felt about that.
By the end of the 3rd there was no doubt in my mind about Kenny and Charles statement; THE CAVS WERE NOT AND STILL NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO HELP JAMES WIN!!!
It wasn’t just the bad play of the Cavs, because there is some talent on that team. It was the poor attitudes those players took to the court; there is nothing wrong with players being friends off the court but when you are competing… all that friendship stuff is left in the locker room. These kats on the Cavs have no heart, they let James come to their house and act like it was his crib and they were only renters.
If you’re a Cavs player how are you going to sit there and yuck it up with Bron during timeouts and free throws? These bum ass player let Bron stand in front of their bench and chat them up. At times Booby Gibson looked more like a fan than a ball player on a team getting their asses handed to them. Cavs fans need to stop putting all the blame on James for not taking them to the promise land and they better look at them cornballs currently playing for them.
Cavs players need to take a lesson from Joakim Noah; there is no way Noah would have taken that sh*t from James; he already let the King know he is not a servant in the King’s Court. I hope Byron Scott will sit those players down and have a long conversation and let them know, at some point one of them kats should have stood up and told James to STFU and get away from their bench.
And I refuse to give Mo Williams any respect for the cold shoulder he gave Bron during warmups…
Really Mo??? You did all that and tweeted all that trash before the game and turned around a laid an egg! Plus Mo looked like a woman scorned, LOL!!!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
