If you rank Lebron in the list from classiest/good guys to the scum of the earth, he is probably in the 40%-tile (totally scientific) leaning towards classy/good human being. The amount of anger for him acting like a 'horse's ass' is pretty high IMO. How do you feel about Jordan? Jason Kidd? Charles Barkley? Larry Sanders? Ruben Patterson? Josh Jackson? JR Smith? OJ Mayo? Lebron wouldn't even ranked in my top 100 worst human beings that played in the NBA the last 10 years. He's in the James Harden/Russell Westbrook/Aaron Rodgers where I would hate to have a beer with the guys, but at least the worst they are doing is a being a dick every once in a while. They aren't severely physically or emotional hurting anyone.


Hell, Miles F-ing Plumlee has a longer rap sheet than Lebron:
Plumlee, Miles
SEP 7
Charge: Marijuana possession
Arrest Date: August 20, 2017
Franchise: Atlanta Hawks
Age 28
Details: Plumlee was charged with fifth degree marijuana possession following an arrest in Shelter Island, New York. No other details have been made public.


Lebron's just a classy guy out there.

Lol at the "Lebron's camp" being shocked by Griffin's comments. This is the kind of crap that makes people roll their eyes at Lebron and his constant PR spin machine, not the hyper-Dad stuff. As if he wasn't a large reason for a bunch of the terrible personnel decisions and contracts that the front office handed out during that time.

As per the "he's just not the same animal anymore" comment, people have been saying this stuff for more than a decade regarding his motivation. He said when he was 19-20 years old that he wanted to be the first billionaire athlete. I've always thought that Lebron was just as much interested in being a mogul as he was being a great basketball player, and what he's done the last several years does seem to indicate that's where his priorities are.

And guess what?......There's nothing really wrong with that. IMO Kareem's first priority wasn't basketball, it was social activism. Wilt loved the lifestyle probably more than he loved the game. Didn't stop either of those guys from being Top-5 players ever, just like Lebron will probably go down as.

FWIW my first priority wasn't being a top-level poster but the zeitgeist and no small amount of genetically-endowed talent have conspired to place me at the peak of this trash heap. Is it a blessing? Is it a curse? It simply is what it is, baby.

I get the point you're trying to make but I'm also sure I don't need to point out the obvious experience difference along with the sense of retribution for Dunleavys previous acts in the series. LeBron was being petty.

Giannis was an adult (20, not a teenager) who made a flagrantly vicious play against his opponent. Much more dangerous than what LeBron did to him (for both Giannis and Dunleavy), which is a move you see all the time in basketball on box-outs when players get annoyed or pissed off about something.

I'm not holding it against either guy. But if you're passing judgement on LeBron's class for what he did and absolving Giannis then you're just being a hypocrite.

Don’t really care about LeBron being a dick but curious why Plumlee would be considered a dick for fifth degree possession. What’s that, a joint?

Yeah, I'm absolutely "absolving" Giannis of what he did to Dunleavy, because Dunleavy is a dirty piece of **** and probably deserved to get punched in the mouth (ya know, like what he did to MCW).

Giannis also apologized and feels embarrassed he did that as a 20 year and 4 month old( :D ). LeBron just plays hard and tries to break ankles with temper tantrum stomps. Respect the King.

Didn’t this happen just a couple plays before the tackle?

I see him lifting his leg while Giannis's leg is on it, LBJ forcibly pulling it to free his leg and his momentum causing his foot to stomp the floor...not Giannis. I would think if LBJ was foot stomping someone, he would've got him and it would've caused damage. You honestly think LBJ is trying to injure Giannis in that play? Yeah it was an unnecessary "get off" me leg movement, but the force is pushing Giannis leg out and away, not coming down on it for what I can tell.

ETA: Is there a point when Giannis's leg and foot is below LBJ's foot? How can you stomp on something that is above your foot?

He was staring at Giannis the whole time to get his attention while Giannis was falling while Giannis was still focusing on the play. The stomp was absolutely aimed at Giannis but he quickly got up to get back on defense. The get off was fairly tame while the stomp was ridiculously forceful. It was an **** move by the King with intention.
