Biff is right. If they don't win this year, they could be looking at a long road ahead. The way the labor situation is going, it looks like there may not be a full season next year. The longer they go without winning one the more toxic the situation will be and the more "me first" situations will occur.
The Decision was a clear failure in the community (whether you want to define that as Akron, the Cavs, LBJ's inner-circle, or the adult's in LBJ's life while he was growing up) to properly raise someone with immense talent to handle success. That being said, at some point people stop being "immature" or a "communal failure" and start being "jerks." In other words, at some point, you can't give LBJ a pass because of his upbringing or how he was handled by the Cavs. At some point, he isn't a kid anymore and is able to observe the world around him and be responsible for his own decisions. Has that time come? Maybe, maybe not. But his stupid little thing at the end of the Celtics series clearly shows you that he doesn't fully grasp his situation.
If the Bulls win this series, the most interesting thing will be to see how LBJ handles himself and the situation.
On another note, thank astrology or whatever that Irving decided not to go LRMR Marketing as his agent (although he was heavily pursued). That would have been an awkard negotiation...
I don't understand this article at all. Who is this guy. Can he write in clear English?
