Mike Brown and its not even close. He has the most options around Lebron hes ever had plus 3 legit bench guys who would be in anyones rotation and still the offence is like Phillys in 2000 with Iverson holding it every possession. Its pathetic. Get some movement one time and spread around the wealth. I dont buy into the Lebron didnt get any help BS. Hes got good players around him, they just werent integrated properly, especially Jamison.

Slightly off the topic if you look at the big three Washington player unloaded before the deadline.
Dallas out the 1st round now Cleveland out in the second round.
Everyone blamed Areanas for Washington not not achieving was it him or the supporting staff.
Curreently the evidence points to the supporting cast.

LBJ had enough to get at least to Eastern finals.
But again look at Phoenix without the Big Fellow

I don't think you can just pick one main reason. I believe it was almost all of them above(where was that option. lol).

- Mike Brown sucks
- Mo Williams(besides first half of game 6 & 3rd Q of game 1), Delonte West, and Jamison were all terrible
- LeBron didn't take over in game 4, 5 or 6.
- Boston was just the better TEAM.

Cavs had a great time. Lebron didnt play anywhere close the mvp and mike brown is just terrible.

What if a couple of players were paid off to tank so Lebron would leave?

I only ask because the transformation was so sudden and so odd. I never felt like I could trust anything I was seeeing, whether it was Lebron's health being a real concern or some kind of act, or whatever. The whole thing seemed fishy. These guys suddenly looked like the Raptors from last season. They even had AP hitting a three late when it just didn't matter anymore.

How can anyone blame Arenas, he's missed the better part of the last 3 seasons. I think Arenas is an asshole but you can't blame a player that's barely played for a teams lack of success.

The Cetics have this aura about them...
when they get rolling, their opponents tend to give in. its weird, its as if they have a special power or something. look at what happened here with the cavs. the C's got their shit together, and pretty much willed themselves to win, and in turn, made the Cavs crumble.
they are a big bully that sucks the likfe out of their opponents when they have their confidence.

Cav's lost because besides James they have no one who can compete with Garnett, Pierce, Allen and Rondo.

agree at least one player have to step up with al the defence concerned about LBJ, but no one did it. Maybe no player is that good and LBJ playing like He did all season long hide that weakness

Since there isn't a "Delonte West rode Lebron's Mom", I guess I'll go with "Other"

The Jamison trade hurt the Cavs more than helped. I can't remember who said it, I believe Adrian Woj (however you spell his last name) from Yahoo said while Jamison is a great 4 and provides mismatches at that position, he loses that when he becomes a 3.

And the Cavs weren't able to incorporate him at all because he wasn't the best fit. What they desperately needed was a 2 guard who can simply score. They never sought that and it burned them.

I've never been a Jamison or R. Jefferson fan and imo both of them hurt their respective teams.

Lebron putting up triple doubles wasn't himself?

aiy.......:facepalm: Elbow is an excuse. Kobe has been playing with broken fingers and Bynum is playing with a torn knee and the media aren't kissing his ass about it.

What are you talking about??? Kobe was said to be a God for playing with a broken finger on his shooting hand by the media. Lebron sprained his whole elbow on his shooting arm. Big difference between a finger and an elbow, buddy.

His elbow injury is minor. They are over-exaggerating it. wtf is this?<--link
It's said that he was fine in practice.

He does not require surgery, and we're talking 2 fingers (one on his shooting hand) that needs surgery, not a sprain.

and don't blame it on the elbow when he's putting up triple doubles.
