LeBron will certainly get his championships, but he won’t really EARN them.
Not like Michael Jordan earned his.
Or not like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird earned theirs, facing worthy nemesises in a battle that wrenched from both sides every bit of possible effort, heart, blood, sweat and tears to earn an NBA championship.
Jazz fans MISTAKENLY believe they lost to the Lakers in the 2010 playoffs because the Jazz lacked size.
That’s not really the case.
Against the Jazz, Pau Gasol averaged 23.5 points, and Andrew Bynum averaged 7.8 points.
That’s not exactly domination.
While Gordon Hayward obviously doesn’t meet the Jazz’s need for a top quality center, Hayward has a tremendous upside Jazz fans should be excited about.
People need to quit bashing Sloan for their imaginary perception of him, and wake up to what he’s done in reality. Seriously, if the Jazz were to let go of Jerry Sloan today, and if Phil Jackson and Doc Rivers were to retire this summer like they are both talking about doing…
You can bet both the Lakers and the Celtics would give serious thought to hiring Jerry Sloan as their new head coach.
The Internet has been inundated by bitter Celtics fans declaring an NBA conspiracy handed the Finals to the Lakers. One fan wrote that he is not going to ever spend his hard earned money on the NBA again.
I’m going to guess his “hard earned money” isn’t earned by analyzing basketball.
One of the remarkable things about the NBA’s Final Four this year, is both the East and the West feature match ups between
(1) a team with a dominate player surrounded by a “supporting cast,” (Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant) and
(2) a team with solid players all around, including the bench.
