NO, you got this wrong.

It was classic LeBron. His team didn't play up, and he didn't.

Think of a bully who never got into a real fight. He only gets excited when he can dominate the other team - not grind it out.

And it is arrogance of youth. LeBron doesn't care because he knows there is always next year. But there isn't, you see, and eventually you learn how hard it is to win championships. Or rather, how lucky.

I don't think you got Raab's book right either. Cleveland has one export left: bile. Think Lithuanian sauerkraut.


Whether it's fair or not doesn't really matter. LeBron's talent is so huge that the expectations of him are always going to be that he be like Mike. He's going to be expected to be The Man, to be Kobe, Jordan, to demand success from himself and others. After The Decision, he looks like someone who wants to play The Man on TV, but doesn't want to be The Man.

That may be who he is, but he will be criticized for it. Especially in basketball, where the impact of an individual player is much larger than in other sports.
