Reggie Miller blasts LeBron James for seeking advice

In most professions, asking for help when you’re not quite sure what to do is encouraged. According to television analyst and former NBA star Reggie Miller, that rule of thumb does not apply to NBA players.

Miller blasted Miami Heat star and probable soon-to-be three-time league MVP Lebron James for asking for tips on how to win a title from former champions like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Isaiah Thomas.

James sought guidance from several well-known former players during the lockout, and Miller voiced his opinion on the subject during Monday night’s Game 2 broadcast.

"The average fan that’s at home watching is saying, ‘Are you kidding me?’" said Miller. "This is the most physically gifted guy in our game. For whatever reason you left Cleveland, and you had every right to do that, to join arguably one of the top five players, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, a top 10 or 15 player, and now you’re reaching out to Hall of Famers to see what it takes?

"Enough is enough. Go out and actually do it on your own. What do you need more help for? That’s my only question about that," Miller added.

Miller was perturbed by the fact that James -- arguably the most dominant player currently in the league -- still feels the need to seek advice from others.

"What I’m saying is you’re getting ready to be a three-time MVP, because he’s going to win it this year. Guys should be calling you. I don’t remember Michael Jordan, when he was getting his head beat in by the Bad Boys, calling someone and saying, ‘How do I get by Detroit?’ I didn’t see Isiah calling anyone when he couldn’t get by the Boston Celtics. You figure it out and you go out and actually do it," Miller said.

Miller spent his entire 18-year NBA career with the Indiana Pacers, where he was a five-time All-Star and earned the nickname "Knick k!ller" for his clutch shooting; especially against the rival New York Knicks.

Miller is far from the first person to criticize James for his apparent inability to win a title, but he is the first to say that James should have to figure out how to win one on his own.

Some might argue that joining the Miami Heat marked the death of the idea that winning "on his own" was even a possibility.

Nothing wrong for reaching to your peers for advice, but its gotta be in him this year and he has to get it done. Too much pressure from media and fans for Heat not to win it all.

Maybe if this ringless f*ggot n*gga asked for help he wouldn't be RINGLESS and strugglin to hit the HOF
He WILL get in the Hall, and he played in the Jordan era, hard for a lot of greats to get titles. Houston might not have them 2 had he not took a 2 yr break.

A lot people slamming Reggie for this and rightfully so. LeBron is asking for help from the greats to get his mind in the right mode. The guy clearly showed a mental barrier last year in the Finals. LeBron has the teammates and the attributes. Asking the greats is about trying to figure out where he needs to be mentally get that first title.

If he wanted advice from the greats on how to win it all, why didn't he just call Kobe?

I can hear it now...LeBron's ring will be invalid because he asked for help.

I mean, I understand where Reggie's coming from, but LeBron does whatever he wants. You should know you can't put this man in a box.

yo I cant believe there are dudes making excuses for Lebron. He has been to the finals TWICE! What advice is there to ask?

Dude is pitiful...most babied player in sports history.

At some point yall have to look at yaselves as fans and say "why do I continue to make excuses for another man"
