When you enter the NBA out of HS and you embrace the "chosen one", "king" nicknames you open yourself up to criticism. He's been a great player in this league and he has been teflon despite the failings in big spots, he finally did something that gave him tons of negative press and that's his own fault not the fault of the press, fans or whoever else.
I have never disliked Lebron, I don't dislike him now(I don't know him) I just lost respect for him. I thought he could be a guy in the conversation w/ Jordan but he showed no guts in doing what he did. It's great for Heat fans and I tip my cap to Riley for pulling it off but I have felt the last few years that he has had teams capable of winning it all(I have rooted for him and Cle) and he failed to step up when his team needed him most.
I think this is different, this isn't some petty jealousy of a rival fan this is about the legacy of what could have been a top 3 all time player. I think assuming he wins 3-4 titles it will still always bew brought up about him running to a ready made championship team rather than fighting w/ another team.
Antawn averaged over 20 PPG in Washington where he wasn't the #1 option(except when Arenas was out). In the 3 full years w/ Arenas Antawn averaged 20 PPG. In his 2 years w/o Jordan in '94 and '95(I know Michael came back late) Pippen averaged 21.7 PPG. Obviously Pippen was the better defender but Antawn the better scorer and better 2nd scoring option.
