"Just found your assertion laughable given that you're using one of the most selfish players in NBA history who was notorious for throwing his teammates under the bus and orchestrated a trade from the Hornets."
I believe there is a level of comprehension that you are missing. This is what I said originally:
"they never manipulated their situation to build a super team so that they could win championships to handicap their legacy"
My point was not whether MeBron is selfish or not, my point is that MeBron puts himself out there as saying all the right things and doing all the right things, and then he turns his back on his team that he invited up to the stage during his MVP award presentation and turned his back on the city he promised a championship to. And why did he do it? So he could handicap his legacy with more championships instead of trying to build through the team that he was so appreciative about. What other superstar in their prime did what he did? And don't say Kobe, because if anything Kobe made it harder on himself to win a championship by (as you say) running Shaq out of town.
One more thing, please post a reference to your claim of Kobe forcing his trade from the Hornets. Not saying you are wrong, but I've never read this from a reputable source.

"You really lose credibility by saying MeBron."
Really? How so? You lose credibility for even bringing that up...
"Kobe forced a trade from the Bobcats and ran Shaq out of town."
First of all, Kobe was never a Bobcat, second of all, Kobe did not run Shaq out of town. Shaq and Kobe did not like each other, they could not coexist any longer, the Lakers had to make a choice. At the time, I hated the choice the Lakers made, but in retrospect, they made the right choice.
"He was a free agent and did what was in his best interest."
Are you just stating the obvious or were you trying to make a point?
"Mo Williams and Anderson Verajo are not "talent". No one wanted to go or stay in Cleveland. "
Mo Williams was an All-Star at one point I believe. I'm pretty sure you have to have talent to be one of those...
One final point, you seem to really hate Kobe. I'll admit I use to hate Kobe and love MeBron, but one I realized MeBron was fake, I realized that even though Kobe is a jerk, at least he is an honest jerk. And if it will make you feel better, we can remove Kobe from that list, does that make you feel better? Who else do you have a problem with?
|2 days 19 hours ago||Wow, you like to jump to||
Wow, you like to jump to conclusions and are easily amused apparently... Let me clarify, sure Kobe and probably everyone else on that list to a certain degree cried about something they wanted to chang, but they did not MAKE the change. The change was made by a GM. MeBron, Wade and Bosh had full control over their situation (yes a GM had to still be involved, so don't start LMFAO).
"It was pretty clear he was never going to get the help he needed in Cleveland. "
And what are you basing that on? The GM (Danny Ferry I believe) tried to surround him with talent, just because some or most of the trades did not work out don't mean that he would have never get the help he needed... Talk about revisionist history. I guess it is my turn, LMFAO.
|3 days 6 hours ago||I am a lifelong Lakers fan.||
I am a lifelong Lakers fan. I don't care about the Cavs, but I liked MeBron, he was my favorite player because he said all the right things, did all the right things (remember when he invited all his teammates up to the stage when he received his MVP award), and he tried to make his team better.
I don't have a problem with MeBron's "Decision", he is a model citizen and a great basketball player. But I would not include him in my top ten because I don't think he has any heart. Magic, Larry Isiah,, MJ, Shaq, Duncan, Kobe (I am leaving out the older players before free agency), they never manipulated their situation to build a super team so that they could win championships to handicap their legacy. So that is why I hate MeBron, he has all that talent, but yet he still looks for the easy way out.

So in an environment where everyone has no problem with what Incognito was saying it would still not be ok? I would completely disagree with your assessment. Now while I don't speak like that, I am not going to tell an adult they can't speak to another adult that way, unless of course someone has a problem with it. In that case, it is up to that adult that has a problem to address the problem, if it cannot be solved, then now there is an issue. Otherwise, why should anyone get involved.

I think the point he is trying to make is that this can be resolved without additional rules if parents and students made smart decisions and wouldn't let coaches like Saben get away with this. But the reality is that too many of these parents and students thu\ink so highly of themselves that they think they won't be one of the guys that get "cut".
