LeBron’s Olympic DREAM TEAM

7 Aug

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…HUH…WHUUUH?…oh hey there. Sorry, I was sleeping because TV (the only thing to do anymore) has been ruined by this thing called Olympics. Fortunately, it has not been completed ruined. ¬†Although I was under the impression that this Olympics thing was just a bunch of grown men engaging in competitive water-splashing, I recently learned that a few actual ballgames are included. And wouldn’t you know it, McDonald’s All-American LeBron James made the USA men’s team for basketball! So far, LeBron James and Team USA have conquered all foreign enemies (which is totally good for American democracy *AND* democracy all around the world).

It hasn’t been perfectly smooth sailing –¬†Team USA (or more accurately, the “Dream Team”) almost lost this one time, but not quite. Phew. Good thing LeBron is awesome at Olympics. Not as awesome as the international basketball superstar known as “L. Kleiza,” who scored 5 more points than LeBron, but awesome enough. Granted, L. Kleiza had the advantage of going up against the Dream Team’s sub-par defense and LeBron had to go up against Lithuania’s famous “Iron Curtain” defense. That’s probably why LeBron had zero assists.

I fully expect the Miami Heat to make a serious push for L. Kleiza this off-season…

Better than LeBron

    I hate that Durant’s been outplaying LeBronze like crazy, and yet ESPN continues to harp on how well Lebron is playing…

  2. lebron a legacy retracted August 15, 2012 at 4:03 am #

    ESPN and lebron’s symphony of harmonic pumptitudes can gloss him as bigger than sport itself all they want. Fact of the matter is his legacy will always remain tarnished from the stunt he and his amigos pulled to collectively land at the tarmac in MIA, in my opinion. And I know I am not alone in my beliefs. In the court of public opinion, it sounds as if people still have pretty strong views about this.

    I have an analogy that applies to why I believe lebron can get as many championship rings as he wants, they will still ring hollow in the eyes of many.

    You ever see the movie “The Insider” with Russell Crowe, Al Pacino, and Christopher Plummer? Two sides were legally pitted against each other. The side of benevolence, adherence to conscience and unwavering resolve (Jeff Wigand). The other big tobacco and their heavy-hitting and unscrupulous lawyers defending a line of health-debilitating products in cigarettes. A real David and Goliath story. One watched The Insider and were left full of admiration for the purpose and resolve of Mr. Wigand.

    In Cleveland, I saw lebron as teamed in an honorable pursuit, or building on my analogy further if you will, one that acted as “legal representation” for the likes of Mr. Wigand because it was his path that marshaled that of integrity in purpose. Instead, lebron hopped on over to the other side (the big tobacco legal team) because it was the side of the giant, offered the biggest bang for the buck and was perceived as a far easier path to victory.

    Well. The path to least resistance is not the stuff of champions. It’s the short cut to a championship. I root for the David’s of the world because it is those athletes that truly overcome, with unwavering resolve, that could only be crowned king. It is the right message. lebron’s was the wrong one.

    A glowing column for lebron should not even be spoken in the same stadium as Michael Jordan. It debases the sport.
