Brother JD Of The Smak Is Correct - LeBron "King" James Tarnished His Crown After Losing To Orlando With Bad Sportsmanship

Yes, we were all witnesses, to the best and the worst of LeBron James. His behavior when his fantastic season ended was tacky, childish, and pure bad sportsmanship. You don't have to talk to the press, hell, you don't have to talk to your teammates, but you sure as hell have to congratulate your opponent when he defeats you and that's immediately after the game and not when you feel up to it later the next day.

And Adrian Wojnarowski is right, everyone in the NBA will be too chicken-shit to tell him about it.

Kobe Bryant might not be the most likable guy, but he's never pulled this mess and Michael Jordan sure in the hell would have never done it. I think the coronation of LeBron James as the greatest player in the league was a little premature, he clearly still has some growing up to do.

tacky, yes, but not without precedent. Isaiah Thomas and some of his detroit piston teammates walked off the court with about 10 seconds left on the clock...rather than shake MJ's hand when the Bulls beat the Pistons in the playoffs for the first time in the 90s...

I had little respect for Isaiah at the time anyway because of the way he played in that series....But walking off the court with the game still going that's just nasty....

I, too thought LeBron was bigger than that...

As someone who was at The Palace of Auburn Hills that day. Isaiah had enough of Jordan and Jackson's trashing of the Detroit Pistons and their style of play. The difference in LeBron's actions is that he claims that Howard is his friend and close teammate on the "Redeem Team" Zeke had no such connection with Jordan.

Witness: Bitchassness
