More psycho babble from the posts on this thread.
If LBJ is such a punk for going Miami, then what about...
KG and Allen going to the Celtics to join Pierce?
Shaq leaving Penny and going to LA to be with Kobe then to Cleveland with LBJ?
Kareem going to LA to be with Magic and company?
Moses Malone going to Philadelphia to play with Dr J?
And countless other moves with quality (albeit lesser) players joining teams with quality players in an effort to win the Title.
What's the big difference here? LBJ is supposed to be the Alpha Male content only to have his own team and compete against the rest of the league while putting up 40 a night. Is that it? He's supposed to have that Kobe sized ego that wouldn't allow him to share the team with Shaq.
LBJ is put together differently. He has self confidence like every athlete at the professional level. Maybe more given what he has accomplished. But the guy has made his statement - he is a team oriented player first and it does not matter if he is perceived as The Man.
Will that tarnish his legacy? Did it tarnish the legacy of the guys above? LBJ is betting his legacy will made by winning championships on one the greatest teams in NBA history.
Barkley may not like it, but LBJ is right!
