LeBron you're an asshat, but please be our asshat...

Look, I've never had any illusions about LeBron not being an ego-maniacal asshat.   Everything the guy does screams drama queen and look at me.

His post game quotes show how blissfully unaware of what an asshat he is.

"It's nothing against the Bulls and it's nothing against Joakim or none of
those guys," he said. "It's nothing about showboating on a team. I've seen it
happen all last year. I think he (Noah) was more frustrated about the way he
played as an individual. He didn't help his team win."

"He was more frustrated about how he played as an individual and not
helping his team win," James added. "I was just going to the free-throw
line. Words are said throughout the course of the game. There's a fine
line between saying some words and being disrespectful. We're all men
out there at the end of the day."

Now let's be clear here LeBron, if you don't realize you were the disrespectful a-hole in this situation than you are further removed from reality than the typical superstar.   To put this in perspective, if you tried this in the 60s, you'd probably be in the hospital right now, though honestly, is there anyone on the Bulls who could take LeBron in a fight anyway?  

I'm glad those days of the NBA are over, but to pull that kind of crap and then act like the other team said something disrespectful to you?   Hey LeBron, I wanted to introduce you to a friend of mine; reality.  I know you guys haven't been around each other for awhile, so I thought you might want to get re-acquainted.

All that being said, is there anyone who wouldn't kill to LeBron in Chicago and instead get to laugh off the other team's complaints as those of the losers rather than being the complaining losers?  

As much as a disrepectful asshat LeBron was last night, I'd love to be on the side of the blow out win while disrespecting the other team than the side of the blowout loss being disrespected.  In the end, you have to show up and stop them on the court.  If you can't then you can whine and complain, but that just makes you a whiny loser.

For what it's worth I love the fact that Joakim stood up for the team.   In the moment, I would have liked it more if someone had gotten in LeBron's face and gave him a big push in the middle of his dance routine, but let's be realistic here too, we've got a game tonight, and Aaron Gray or James Johnson might be the only guys big enough to stand up to LeBron, get suspended, and not have a huge impact on tomorrow.

All and all, a little drama added to the game.  This game, the Cavs went out and wanted to make a statement because we already beat them in their house once.   They crushed an undermanned Bulls team tonight.  My hope, probably as detached from reality as LeBron, is that we remember this and beat them up in our house next time.

  • I guarentee you that LeBron would have gotten a push or a smack had he done this at the UC. In some way, I kind of hope he does it, only to see James Johnson walk towards him with a look in his eyes that says: 'This is going to hurt you, LeBron'

    Conclusion: I agree it'd be nice to have James on the team, I'm glad Noah stood up for those ridiculous antics, but I'd sure love to see Johnson set LeBron straight in a physical manner. Nothing that's going to make James miss any time, but something that just makes him a timid little puppy for the next time he faces Chicago.

  • I am sorry...but the idea of wishing physical harm on someone because your team is losing is barbaric. I don't want James Johnson to do anything other than learn how to play basketball on the professional level. That is it. Lebron can dance if he wants to...don't like his dancing? Beat him. That is the real answer. Beat him on the court. The only hope I have is that the Bulls are so furious...they play better basketball.

  • In reply to Houston:

    I never understood how wishing an injury on a multi-millionair was a bad thing. If I said I wish LBJ would tear his acl whats the big deal?
    1. 99.9% it wont happen
    2. If he gets an injury that never makes him be his old self its not like he cant make a living anymore and its not like he will be bad off financially. Give me a break. If I were a Bull I would have swung with all my force at his face.

  • What a joke, LBJ needs to be professional! Just like when he lost to the magic last season and he was salty and walked out and cried like a baby. He is a talented player but still immature. I think he needs to give our banged up baby bulls some props. For kicking their butts the first time around. Antics like these make you realize that LBJ will never win a championship. I still think ATL hawks will smoke the Cavs. I woulndn't want LBJ to go the bulls. I rather have CB and Wade. hahahahah

  • In reply to vinmotors:

    I believe that is actually why he celebrated like that...he got a whupping on TNT last time...its okay though because once again, he will be walking off of the court in the playoffs with nothing...just like last season.

  • In reply to vinmotors:

    The Bulls don't need an ASSHAT, they need a WINNER. That would be DWYANE WADE. They also could use a superstar PF. That would be Chris Bosh. I'll take either or both of those guys over that ASSHAT anyday!!!

    ASSHAT...good word.

    Ohio hillbilly trash.

  • In reply to souleater7:

    Yep, you are the epitome of the Ben Gordon fan club.

  • In reply to vinmotors:

    We're gonna see who is gonna be dancing when the Cavs get eliminated in the playoffs and lebron stomps off the court like a lil Bitch like he did last year!!!

  • In reply to vinmotors:

    cavs are just way too much height for the bulls and deeper in bench. But they will never win a championship, as our bulls will never win one neither. We need a complete overhaul and get some super stars in our team like the bulls did in the MJ ERA. We also need a new coaching staff. VDN but not GOOD AS Phil Jackson was!

  • I would MUCH rather have Lebron than Wade...not even close. Wade is great...Lebron has a serious chance of being the greatest ever. He is on another level from Wade and Bosh.

  • In reply to Houston:

    greatest ever? You're a fucking idiot!

  • In reply to souleater7:

    Watch a game sometime...and show some damn respect...

  • In reply to Houston:

    Matter of fact, when someone called you the same thing on bullspodcasters...you got emotional...so yeah, show some damn respect dude!

  • I agree, someone should have given him a hard foul. Sent him to the floor and said save the dancing for another team. You think the 90's knicks teams or bad boy pistons would have let jordan walk if he danced on their sideline? I was hoping Gray would have given him a hard elbow or foul on a drive.

  • Ya well Shaq had 2 of the clutchest players in NBA history. Lebron just isn't clutch time player. He's one game winner has whole life that crazy fadeaway 3 and can't make the big free throws down the stretch.

  • Doug, you strike me as more of a mild mannered pacifist. I didn't see the game or Lebrons antics, but I am quite surprised by your reaction.

  • Unfortunately, nothing that I have seen in James JOhnsons demeanor or play suggests to me that he could actually kick anyones ass. He really just seems like a rolly polly happy go lucky easy going kid.
    I am really starting to wonder if the whole mixed martial arts thing is a ruse.

  • You are absolutely correct, which is why the only strategy for the Bulls is to do whatever it takes to make the Lebron thing happen, including any and all trades, salary dumps that would be required during the remainder of this season, regardless of the consequences for this season.

    There is nothing that we can do this season on the court that matters compared to getting Lebron next summer, Asshat or not.

  • Again, absolutely correct.

    Kobe and Lebron are the only 2 guys in the league that you can call a championship waiting to happen, just like Michael was in his day.

    Everyone else today is just a pretender.
