The Decision and his flopping/complaining will always rub me the wrong way (mainly the latter), but I don't hate him. He's a great player and deserves props.
I guess. Still disagree 100% with just about everything listed. The only reason I would have for not liking him is how he (perhaps with some help) repeatedly stopped the Wizards in the playoffs

Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs

Well deserved championship for Lebron and the Heat. Lebron has really grown up in a short amount of time and delievered on everything he promised. He's the best player in the league and now one of the best all time.

I cant think of a more disappointing performance in the finals than the Thunder. Really showed the over hype of this team coming in. They got a TON of growing together to do. And personally dont think Westbrook and Durant can co exist on that team together. This probably going to be another Marbury and Garnett situation.

Didn't mention that because that's more of a DC thing and I figure that's not something unique to LeBron (Utah hates MJ for ex.).

Fair enough. To be clear it irks me pretty equally when I see others flop or surround the ref complaining. Just shuttup and play.

I totally agree. I am big Celtics fan and Paul Pierce may have just pushed past Bird as my favorite Celtic of all time but he is one of the worst complainers of them all.

I think it was more Marbury being a flop then them not working together.

Must have been weird when Marbury came to the C's a few years back.

Marbury and Garnett were explosive together and considered the best 2 young players in the game at the time. They went to the playoffs, couldnt get over the hump...but the problem was Marbury's (PG=Westbrook) ego was huge and couldnt stand playing second fiddle to Garnett (Durant) the more talented player. Garnett got the big contract and more praise for the rising team. Eventually Marbury was moved because of his attitude and ego...I kinda see it in Westbrook.

Just about every sport I will turn on when they get to the final game, match, series, but I don't think I watched any basketball playoffs.

Mark Cuban absolutely destroys ESPN’s Skip Bayless on air, Skip Bayless doesn’t seem to care (VIDEO) | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports


Marc Cuban absolutely DESTROYS Skip Bayless and I absolutely LOVE it...lol

This is a clinic. Skip Bayless should just resign after that...lol Poor Stephen A. Smith had to be eating it up over there.

Mark Cuban Destroys Stephen A. Smith On ESPN First Take - Business Insider

Not only did he kill Skip, but he demolished Stephen A. Smith as well. Loved that bit about his 2 year old breaks down film and knows more about basketball than both of them....hahahaha

I love Mark Cuban. I wished he owned the Redskins. What a joy to listen to. He also gets bonus points for wearing a "Smurfs" t-shirt on ESPN. Hands down, the best owner of all the pro-sports.


Smoot, can you put in a few good words at ESPN to get Cuban hired on full time? Thanks in advance.

I think Cuban is great, but I don't really think he killed him.
