The King Without A Throne…

Lebron James was seen wearing an MVP shirt while he was on a shopping break in New York after winning his first MVP title last year. Kobe or Michael could not even dare to wear such an egotistical shirt. It was also last year when Lebron refused to shake hands with Dwight Howard after being eliminated in the conference finals and said it was nothing personal. Lebron James, with all his greatness, still lack one thing that separates common players from basketball legends: a championship title…
The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the brink of being eliminated by the Boston Celtics this season and just when the Cavaliers desperately needed Lebron, he just shrunk out and easily dismissed his poor game 5 performance “I spoil a lot of people with my play. When you have three bad games in seven years, it’s easy to point them out.” 1 out of 11 shots and still standing flaccid as the Celtics build a huge lead, and all he can say is I spoil a lot of people? Kobe, MJ, Bird and Magic would readily declare war after getting a 120-88 beating. “It’s just who I am,” Lebron said. “I’m not going to show you that I’m angry. If I show a sense of panic, guys follow my lead. If I come over here and panic and say, ‘we lost by 30 and we don’t know what to do.’ That’s not right. It’s not who I am. It’s never been who I am.” But saying I spoil a lot of people does not inspire your teammates either. People call him the king and no one doubted Lebron’s vastness. Everybody bows down to the king. The Cavaliers is tiptoeing every time Lebron demands something. He wants a championship title. Or else he will be wearing a Knicks uniform when his contract ends this summer. And so the Cavaliers made all the necessary changes to make ends meet, even signing up veterans Shaquille O’neal and Antawn Jamison… Lebron has never been vocal about being what he is nor has he bragged about being MVP. But he wears a shirt with letters LBJ MVP. He never calls himself the King but his tattoo on his back spelled C-H-O-S-E-N-.-1. Lebron can be what he wants himself to be, but in the end, shirts, tattoos or MVP awards do not matter. It is all about that Larry O’Brien cup. He still got two games to oust the Celtics and prove his redemption or stay as a king without a throne. It’s your call, Bron…
