He should have shut up and bounced the ball.

Michael Jordan has SIX titles ... LeBron James has FOUR... he should have SHUT UP and focused on the stupid game rather than run his mouth about politics.

"LeBron James is talented enough and fortunate enough to have escaped the vagaries of sports for most of his career. In a league of perpetual chaos, he's the closest thing to certainty. For the past 10 years, as long as he made the playoffs, he also made the NBA Finals.

Until now. LeBron James lost in the first round of the playoffs for the first time in his career on Thursday, when the Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 113-100, in Game 6 of their playoff series to end their championship reign abruptly.

The season turned out to be a wasted one for a star who doesn't have many of them left. James is now 36 years old with 18 years of NBA experience. He's been in the league for half of his life, and soon there will be players who weren't born when he was a rookie. He was long ago pushing the limits of longevity. What he's doing at this age is without precedent: He is still the game's most dominant force.

But he is also nearing his twilight and chasing the shadow of Michael Jordan's six titles, even if James long ago surpassed him in many statistical comparisons. For someone with a keen awareness of legacy, narratives and how championships spin both, James understands the importance of seizing every good opportunity that he gets.

He did last season when he won his fourth ring. He had another chance this season. Instead the Lakers are out after the first round for the same reason they were stuck with this frisky Suns team: injuries. "

OUT in the first round of the playoffs.
I don't care, don't watch or listen to thumping balls on courts - so, too bad, big mouth!
He might be a great player, but he's a bigger distraction, to the media & his team.  They deserve what they got.

Lebron ... not so much ... it is all about Lebron.

Fool.

If you're old enough to remember the boxer, Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), it was often said, his mouth got him in trouble too!  People would pay-per-view just to see if someone would finally knock the mouthy SOB out.  not an NBA fan here...  just detest these athletes getting POLITICAL when their function is to entertain.

Yes Cassius Clay was a young pup back then for me.  His mouth help make him money.  People would go just to see if he would get his ass kicked.  He lost me when he became Muhammad Ali, he was no longer an entertainer.

His lame attempts at rhymes, the "Thrilla in Manilla" .... "JUST SHUT UP already..."  I guess he really made Don King rich.

What's LeBron James going to do next?  Prolly involve politics.....  :thumbdown:  He's have enough supporters.

Good question. Besides selling shoes made by children working at slave wages, what is a pro athlete good for?

A paid monkey. I'm serious, the term "Professional" merely means one gets paid for a given skillset.
And any monkey could put these morons to shame, athletically speaking, and probably intellectually as well.

It's the very reason I was never attracted to being a spectator, I'd rather be playing than watching these low IQ individuals throw a ball around.
Memory serves me? Most of the guys that were good at sports, had zero intellect or personality, definitely not the kind of person you want as a roll model for your kids.
