    Buddy Thomas: Why I can’t enjoy LeBron James’ bully ball "LeBron James may be the greatest NBA player of his or, arguably, any era, but how good would he be if he was forced to play by the rules that govern virtually every amateur basketball league? Yes, he’s big, strong, agile, amazingly athletic and, by far, the king of his sport. But there are plenty of people who can drive around a rotary on Cape Cod and come through unscathed who would not be as fortunate if they had to make big-time adjustments in an effort to negotiate a NASCAR track during a racing event. Only in the NBA can a player stop his dribble at the foul line, take two steps, pirouette and lay the ball in the basket without forcing a game official to blow his whistle. The only exception is when the whirling dervish is being rewarded for drawing a “continuation” foul, which LeBron seems to have perfected. College basketball may also have the “two step” rule, but traveling calls in one college game probably out-number the number of travel calls in an NBA season. That’s because the NBA is about flash-and-dash and scoring points and, from an offensive standpoint, nobody is more flashy, dashy or prolific than LeBron James. So why can’t I root for the guy? I guess it’s because I’ve never been a fan of the bully and every time I’ve seen LeBron play he’s cast that role. He gives, but can’t take. For a star of such magnitude, has there ever been a bigger complainer?" Watch him on offense. Are his shoulders that big from working out or just swollen from consistently driving them into any opposing body that dares block his path to the basket? If there is no direct route, James will back his way through a defender with a series of body bumps until he finds the open path — usually without picking up an offensive foul. For proof, check out the numbers." Link http://www.southcoasttoday.com/sports/20170614/buddy-thomas-why-i-cant-enjoy-lebron-james-bully-ball

    Like the crab dribble (travel) he use to get away with?

    You tell 'em -O-. LeBron's team might win the Eastern Conference championship, but they are not going to win the NBA final. You can take that to the bank.

    I agree. Seems like we agree on a lot of things Fan.

    You say this, but a lot can happen within the next 3 games to change the momentum. I hope you are right that the Warriors should still take the series. I agree with O that Dramon has had his share of turnovers and needs to calm down.

    Who said the Warriors are better without Curry? Of course Curry's scoring is needed, but the timing in which they brought him back is the key. The Warriors should have been up by 3-0. They were not ready for Curry's return for game 2. So, in game 3, the Pelican's coach saw something they felt they could exploit. No longer were the Warriors passing the ball around looking for the open man, and for some reason, the lane was not opening up for the Warriors to make easy lay ups. There were more 3 pt. attempts being jacked up and missed (game 3). The Warriors played small ball too long in game 3. Draymon Green is a good defender, but the Pelicans used 2 twin towers--Davis and whats the other guy's name?--who were very effective scoring more than 15 feet from the basket. Both teams had been pushing the ball up the floor, the Warriors went away from that in game 3 playing 'slow the ball down'. I don' think Curry was ready for the up tempo and he was not driving the lane for lay ups the way he use to before the injury. I love myself some Curry, but he is not a good passer and turns the ball over too much as he did in game 3, which allowed the Pelicans to take it to the basket for an easy score. I don't care who the player is--whether it's Durant, LeBron, Kobe. You don't bring that player back when your team is on a roll, winning consistently.

    Who said Curry is LeBron? My point about rushing him back has nothing to do with rust. At the beginning of the playoffs, the team was playing well without him. Sure, Curry, before his injury was much needed for his scoring. After he went down to injury, the team struggled to find a groove. In the post season they finally figured it out--how to make it work without Curry. There was a lot of ball movement to find the open man. Role players were making contributions. So when Curry returned, they had to restructure everything. The role players who were contributing before Curry's return became an after thought. It messed up the chemistry they had going for them.

    I also felt they should not have rushed curry back. I felt uneasy about it when it was mentioned that he would return in the second round. I like Curry--rushing him back was one thing, but he also turns the ball over too much trying to flip the ball over to his teammate over the opponents head and it gets intercepted. He did that twice tonight. Also, Curry is bad on defense.

    That's your opinion. Y'all like to use words like 'silly' and 'foolish' to describe someone else's opinions. You will never see me use words of that nature when I disagree or debate with someone. How rude!

    We will soon find out if all of what you say about LeBron still holds up in the finals. We shall see! Where will he go after he loses in the finals to uphold his legacy?

    We shall see, DirtDan, we shall see. I can't wait! :)
