LB James and the Boston Roadblock

I saw on ESPN where they’ve decided to publish the Dan Gilbert comments indicating LB James “quit” during Cleveland’s second round series against Boston last year. Not too hard to see why that might have happened, especially since the guy had to deal with rumors of a teammate banging his mom. Gross. Damn, those are the worst words ever stated on BSP, and the second worst I’ve ever mentioned…Barry Williams of “Greg Brady” fame dating Everyone’s Mom, Florence Henderson obviously overtakes everything else ever mentioned by me.

Then again, Dan-o, maybe you quit as an owner by only bringing in an over-the-hill Shaq O’Neal and Antawn Jameson to help out James. That Cleveland squad showed its true colors this season by going completely south after LB’s departure. Cleveland does not rock.

Anyway, the hype seems to be whether LB can get past the Boston Celtics. The interesting thing is, everyone’s seeing this as LB’s challenge, and Dwayne Wade’s challenge. Meanwhile, the Celtics are (once again) getting short shrift as the defending Eastern Conference champions. It wouldn’t surprise me if Boston handed the “Heatles” their lunch. It’s not good and it’s not smart to neglect a champion. Regardless, the league will do their best to make this as long a series as possible.

And don’t be surprised if anything bad ever mentioned about players comes out in this series…and if the Heat are the victims in all of the negativity. Stuff like Dwayne Wade’s treatment of his ex-wife (which really was hideous), LeBron’s circus and Chris Bosh’s unusual denial of being married (despite the fact the legal documents are public record). Boston sports media is like an information operations campaign. They bring up a lot of negative stuff outside the lines, because they are pretty much the worst homers in sport. They do what they believe is necessary to bring home the titles for their teams, even if much of it is below the belt. They make distractions. Meanwhile, Boston sports media conveniently ignores the lives of their own stars, former stars and more former stars.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

    Good stuff and I agree nobody seems to talk about Tom Brady and his 2 kids out of wedlock plus the road lizards back in the day he used to hang around with it. SO far game 1 belongs to Miami. They looked great today especially Wade. Mario Chalmers is starting to look like a decent point guard now. Zydrunas is well still The Big Stiff and Mike Miller still works for the masonry putting up bricks in every corner of the court.
