The Mavs won the NBA Championship last night. It feels like breaking news because all that was being said was that the Heat lost. I didn't like that at all. Yes, I am a Bulls fan that did not like losing to the Heat and I was cheering for the Mavs to win, but last night was just ridiculous.
The amount of hate put on LeBron last night was horrendous. I guess I feel bad for him because I have been in his situation. It wasn't an NBA title on the line, but it was a state championship. I was like the LeBron of the team. There was also a "Wade" and "Bosh" of the team, but I was the guy that needed to step up to win it. I didn't, I choked under the pressure of the game. I lost. I know how bad that hurt me, and I can only imagine that LeBron was hurt more last night.
Yes, he said some really stupid stuff and I don't like what he said. I still don't like him at all. He is arrogant and a big jerk. I don't think I'll ever cheer for him, but I will be happy for him when he finally wins a championship. I'm sure what he said last night was heat of the moment and he was upset. Maybe it wasn't, I don't know. I feel forgiving though. He went through a lot this year, especially in the playoffs.
Sure, he made a huge deal about his move to Miami and probably didn't handle it well. He is 26, if I was in his shoes I know that I might've done the same exact thing. I don't really hate him for that. I don't hate him at all. I dislike his attitude on the court, but I respect his talent and I feel bad for the amount of hate he gets.
Last nights comments about his haters was over the line, but how many times have his haters crossed the line? Many, many times. Both sides are wrong in this situation and they both need to move on. The Mavs won and deserved to win.
