NBA Finals: Winning doesn’t make the Warriors fun to watch, they suck! Why is LeBron James so relax?

NBA Finals: Winning doesn’t make the Warriors fun to watch, they suck! Why is LeBron James so relax?

The Warriors have not played to their full capability and yea they are winning, but it suck to watch them.  Wins are wins but they haven’t really being fun to watch.  For the Cavalier game 1 it was tough loss due to miss free throw and a “shaqtin-a-fool” play; Game 2, Steph Curry was on fire and just couldn’t be stopped; Game 3, the Cavaliers didn’t take advantage of a struggling Curry and let Kevin Durant do whatever he want it. The Cavaliers are 0-3 in the NBA finals and LEBRON JAMES IS WAY TOO RELAX.

Cavaliers Vs Warriors really displays how too much of a good thing is bad for all of us.  If the NBA is rigged, am please begging them to make it look more exciting, cause it seem like they ran out of story lines.  The Warriors are really hard to watch, this is not the team that use to move the ball so well that even the opposing team lost count of the number of passes per possession.

durant-warriorsThe Warriors have 2 plays that they run 1) Kevin Durant ISO 2) Curry drives – Passes to the forward on the corner – runs towards that same corner, forward screens for Curry for a corner 3. Bonus: Draymond Green Alley hoops to Insert Centers Name/Role players here. LEBRON JAMES IS WAY TOO RELAX.

Every shot that JR Smiths takes should subtract one minute from him and be giving to a bench player.  Cavaliers (or James) destroy Rodney Hood’s year especially when you notice how better Jae Crowder look after leaving Cleveland.  Honestly, nobody cares about Kevin Love that’s it #SorryNotSorry. LEBRON JAMES IS WAY TOO RELAX.

Is becoming obvious, that the Warriors are not fun to watch play basketball.  While the Cavaliers are doing everything they can to make sure they don’t win.  If you watch game 3, can you tell me how many opportunities did you see the Cavaliers blow while been down by 3 or tied? Did you notice how sloppy the Warriors play? And even as KD couldn’t be stopped the only thing that came to mind how he can’t finish a game.

KD so called dagger from 35 feet seem to be more hyped up by the announcers, interviewers or even his after shot reaction.  Seriously, is not like KD was going against a top defender, the whole game he had been doing whatever he want it.  KD was feeling it all of game 3, 35 feet why not, makes it “great shot” if he had missed just another “heat check”.  Curry 1-10 shooting night with his only shot coming in 4th that was the real dagger.

WHY IS LEBRON JAMES SO RELAX?

The NBA playoffs haven’t been that much fun to watch, maybe that’s why the (rigged) NBA is giving the fans a sweep but really is just to end it all. LEBRON JAMES IS WAY TOO RELAX.  Where was this Cavaliers team against the Boston Celtics?

Lebron James is way too relax for a guy who is down 3 games in the NBA finals.  Is like he is on auto pilot and doesn’t care.  He knows his legacy won’t be affected, because individually he is putting up career numbers.  10 years away from now, analyst will look at those numbers and say “wow James was a monster” without thinking how Rodney Hood went from averaging 17 points to not playing.  The point is James does not care at all in this series nor for this team.  At the end of the day, he might or might not be the goat but is still on excuse to make it to the NBA finals and just be completely relax and fine with whatever is happening.

Did LeBron James throw the 2011 NBA Finals?

Did LeBron James throw the 2011 NBA Finals?

By Kevin Bertalotto.  March 29, 2018.

(Note: Not saying he did or didn’t but promoting the question/theory)

Now this does sound bizarre that a superstar competitor like LeBron would throw a whole Finals series considering he didn’t really gain anything, however after considering everything in play I guarantee you this article will make you think, “maybe.”

Everyone remembers the complete meltdown of “LeCHOKE” in the 2011 NBA Finals, however after reviewing it I believe LeBron low-key tanked it. There is multiple theories to why he would do such a thing.

Didn’t want Wade to be FMVP

052514 heat game story rg 8Sounds crazy but hold on, prior to Game 4 when LeBron had 8 points, Dwyane Wade was averaging 27 ppg, 8.7 rebs, 5 apg over 1 stl and 1 blk a game on 57% shooting. Surely that is FMVP worthy stats compared to Lebrons 20 ppg, 6.7 rebs, 6 asts, 2 stls on 51% shooting. Here’s why he would not allow this to happen. LeBron joining Wade’s Heat  was bad enough so for Wade winning FMVP would only make it worse just like Curry winning FMVP over KD last yr would make it worse for Durant. Now after Game 3 LBJ averaged about 15 8 and 8, 4.7 tovs and shot 44% so maybe after realizing he wouldn’t win FMVP he decided he wouldn’t let a teammate win it over him.

Prove his value

Now although I believe Derrick Rose deserved that MVP award, LeBron likely didn’t so after defeating Rose’s Bulls in 5 in the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron figured “losing this series will prove how valuable I am” yeah it backlashed on him but doesn’t mean he didn’t think this.

Was asked to

Here’s the craziest theory. LeBron was asked by the then NBA commissioner David Stern to tank it to boost the ratings of next year’s Finals (OKC vs HEAT). Think about it what would make a better story, an experienced trio with a ring vs a young ringless trio or a ringless experienced trio vs a young ringless trio? LeBron being REALLY hungry for that ring and seeking to redeem himself only made the Kevin Durant/Bron matchup even better. So to get LeBron to throw 2011 Finals, they made a deal that the refs would favor Miami the following Finals which as a proud Heat fan I admit the officiating was horrible. OR instead of it being for ratings the next year Finals it was to repay DAL since the 2006 NBA Finals with the Mavericks vs Miami was officiated horribly against the Mavs and Mark Cuban part Mavs owner claimed the league is rigged.

Worth mentioning

Since the 2000 NBA Finals 14 times the champs got the most FTAs and what’s interesting is Miami in the first 3 rounds had more FTs 436-303 which means the Heat averaged 8 more FTAs than their opponent. DAL in their first 3 rounds had 378 FTs-364 which is only about 1 more free throw attempt a game. So keep that in mind Miami had a big difference in FTAs as opposed to DAL. Fast forward to the end and the Mavericks managed to get more free throws 155 to Heat’s 148. Not a big difference but still worth noting since Miami always got way more FTs until the Finals.

Sure all this is just speculation but definitely worth thinking over.
