This statement painting Lebron James as some sort of locker room cancer destroyed whatever credibility this blogger had.
Lebron James not making his teammate better is pure rubbish. LBJ was an elite playmaker and has exceptional court vision. While He scored a lot of points at a very high efficiency, he was always known to setup his teammates for easy baskets. LBJ early in his career was not fortunate as Larry Bird to have championship calibre front office. Furthermore, Lebron James has a good reputation in and out of the basketball court. If he was really an assh*le, would Wade and Bosh join him in Miami? Even after Lebron moved back to Cleveland, Mike Miller and James Jones followed LBJ because he had deep friendship with both players. Mike Miller said, one of the reasons why LBJ left is because the Heat amnestied him (MIke Miller). This narrative by some media members that Lebron is a poor teammate is horsesh*t. Heck Larry Bird had a rift with Mchale because he feels that Mchale is underachieving and can still do a lot more. Does that count as complaining? Does this affect Bird's legacy? Does that make him a poor teammate? Last time I checked Michael Jordan was punching and verbally abusing his teammates. Did that affect his legacy? About ring chasing, any competitive sport's athlete should be ring / trophy chasing. Kobe Bryant vocally wants to surpass Michael Jordan and be the GOAT, is there anything wrong with that?
Mike Miller and James Jones are not exactly Bill Walton or DJ. Larry Bird had a rift with Mchale? Really now. Kobe Bryant never went to another team to chase rings. He stayed put with the Lakers and just let management have the problem of luring primetime players to the Lakers. I used to detest Kobe Bryant being a Celtic fan but I have grown to respect Bryant because he never left the Lakers and stayed with them through thick and thin. James bailed out on the Cavs and Heat when he thought that the situation was untenable. As for MJ, the Bulls went 57-25 during the year Jordan was in retirement and forced a Game 7 against the Knicks. That series could have gone either way. That's a knock on Jordan's legacy that hasn't been really talked about. The Bulls didn't need Jordan to be competitive.
