f**k Lebron James..Its just disgusting that he would just burn the bridge, just like that..
Never thought this case scenario would ever be a possiblity. But, I'm going to lay out some opinions, and thought patterns that have been circulating in my mind since before this Boston series began. I can go back to three different points during the regular season actually.
But, the main issue is this. I no longer feel that Mike Brown has Lebron James confidence and support as the head coach of this basketball team. I think it's been hanging by a paper thin thread since last year's collapse against the Magic, and has never stabilized to a secure place since.
I think of late, he's also had some key people in his life ,,,in his ear poisoning his mind with alternatives.
I'll put four names together ... Leon Rose, Wes Wesley, John Calipari, Lebron James.
I believe parlayed w/ Lebron's wavering low levels of confidence in Mike Brown, has come these factors in his life that have him mentally compromised.
The Lebron we're seeing in this series is a Lebron James that no longer trusts, believes, nor buys into ANYTHING coming from our head coach.
The only person I've even hinted with in regards to what has been going on has been Jon/Va in a few texts a week or so back. I had heard via some Nike insiders that John Calipari was having strong interests in coming back to the NBA game, but only under the most positive of situations.
Obviously if I'm hearing these things, Lebron is getting them, and more from his people that surround him.
Please note two key, and I believe related issues. Wes Wesley is now an agent representing coaches. To believe he is now working for Calipari would be educated reasoning to say the least
Another key piece ...high ranking recruits to Kentucky aren't signing letters of intent any longer. They are signing something less binding, so that IF Calipari isn't there any longer, they no longer are tied to that university.
If you are smart, you can begin to piece together a puzzle.
I don't believe that I'm delusional ...
But, I'm shocked that, even given a diminished confidence in Mike Brown as our head coach, that Lebron would throw him under the bus in this fashion. No matter ...it's not something anyone of conscience would do.
Saying that ....I just refer to my subject title.
I'd like to think I'm way off base and delusional. But, something is up in my mind.
Red flags began to arise with the elbow injury, with me.
Lebron has always been a player that has been very upfront and vocal about any physical ailment that has or could hinder his play. To the point of obsessive personal concern. When he shot that one FT left handed, and then came out and said it was an issue he had been dealing with for weeks, it was very odd to everyone, because it took our Dr's and training staff by surprise completely.
Since that point in time, which coincides with all that was happening on the Wesley/Calipari front ...Lebron has been a completely different individual. Nothing like the guy we have gotten to know over thecourse of all these years with us.
Which then lead me to try and figure out and ask myself ....what could be causing this ?
And I'm only being honest when I say ...this is where my mind has gone, and the conclusions that I've been coming to.
I hope I'm dead wrong ...but, that's where I'm at mentally right now.
