If Lebron is the bad guy,the heel,the most hated man in the world. What does that make Dirk right now? He's the leagues hero outside of south beach. After the series was set,and we knew Dirk,and Lebron would go after their first title. The media asked the question who's this more important to? Dirks legacy or Lebron's legacy? They all said James,and I didn't hear Dirk at all when everyone would answer the question. They said a series win for Dirk would help his legacy,but it was clear it wouldn't hurt his legacy. Dirk serves the role as hero right now. Lebron has been a choke artist,and Dirk has been a beautiful artist in the clutch.
Dirk suffered in game 4 with some sinus issues,and he had a fever around 102 degrees. His Mavs team beat the Heat in game 4 even though Dirk was visibly sick. Was Lebron James sick in game 4? No he scored 8 points,and he looked scared to take shots,and to take the game into his grasp.
Dirk has handled this playoff run with a lot of class,and it's not fair to Dirk that so many compare him to Larry. Larry is a special breed,and we all know that. Dirk may be more gifted on the offensive end,but the total package in terms of rebounding,passing,and even that killer instinct that is brought up all the time about the past greats. Larry has all that over Dirk. Dirk has never acted like he was the second coming of Bird,but as for James? He's always acted like he was the next Jordan,or that he would be even better.
With the recent stunt by Wade and James. It makes Dirk look good once again,and the two asses look like asses. Wade and James were caught on tape coughing,and acting like they don't put one pant leg on at a time. Here is what Wade says about the cough.
"I actually did cough," Wade said. "And with the cameras being right there, we made a joke out of it because we knew you guys were going to blow it up. You did exactly what we knew.
"We never said Dirk's name. I think he's not the only one in the world who can get sick or have a cough. We just had fun with the cameras being right in our face about the blowup of the incident, and it held to be true. You blew it up."
I will give you a few links to the video if you haven't seen it. Here is the Queens statement.
"I'm not feeding into that," said James, who has been heavily criticized for performing well below his standards during this series. "If you guys want to feed into everything that not only myself or D-Wade or the Miami Heat do, I think that's a non-issue. There's bigger issues in this series than that."
The duo of James and Wade are not acting like their are bigger issues. James has no room to crack on anyone right now. He's being out played by Dirk,and Dirk is one win away from his first title. Dirk had this to say about the two asses.
"I just thought it was a little childish, a little ignorant," Nowitzki said before Saturday's practice at AmericanAirlines Arena. "I've been in this league for 13 years. I've never faked an injury or illness."
I like the word ignorant that Dirk used when describing the duo of asses joking around. James has acted like a child since day one. It was all good when he was 18,and hell even when he was 22 or so,but now he's go to act like a man. Do you think Jordan,Bird,or even Kobe would have joked like this in an NBA finals? No chance of that,and it didn't happen from those players. James keeps adding to his bad guy persona,and it's they I want him. I love hating LBJ.
