    To each his own. Now I know how Kyrie felt coming up under LeBron. I’ve gained a little more insight. :ld:

    He basically ethered himself :mjpls:

    He couldn't deal with the pressure of being expected to be in the Finals every year :dahell:

    If your OWN expectations isn't to be in the Finals every year, then what the hell are you playing for? He already got his money. He's already an all star. He already got his own shoe. What more does he want?

    He was already being groomed to be the number 1 option. In fact, his final year in Cleveland, he averaged more shots than LeBron :mjpls:


    If anything, this is the ultimate complement. Imagine Pippen leaving after the 2nd title, because he didn't want to be in Jordan's shadow or deal with the expectations of going championship or bust every year :russ:

    Stackhouse left Philly because he didn't want to play in Iverson's shadow, and where did it get him?
    Boozer left Cleveland because he didn't want to play in LeBrons shadow and where did it get him?

    If people see this as anything other than a huge compliment to Lebron is smoking crack

    This whole thing comes down to this: being around greatness challenges you to step up your game....literally on the court, and perhaps indirectly off of it.

    That's what Kyrie said.

    Anyone thinking this is ether is simply a hater or a weak-minded individual who would shrink from such a challenge.

    Great players have self awareness. LeBron knew he needed to go with Miami and play with Wade, in order to learn how to win. He was self aware enough to admit that.

    Kyrie looked up to LeBron, but couldn't deal with the everything that went along with being his teammate while still trying to establish his own legacy.

    SO he bounced. Even though he knew, getting to the Finals is not easy. Even though he knew there are no guarantees of going back ever again, he was willing to start over. :manny:

    I wonder how kyrie would’ve develope or how his career turns out thus far if Lebron doesn’t come thru. Does he still become the very good player he is today? Does he lead Cleveland out of basketball purgatory?

    Melo never got enough credit for leading the Knicks from out of the dumpster. The Knicks were a laughingstock from the mid 2000’s all the way up to Melo playoff berth... before Melo it was hard to imagine them climbing from under themselves...

    He’s basically calling it a gift and a curse to play alongside someone like Bro

    Which is true :yeshrug: if you’re a young superstar

    Nah, Magic was pretty much a megastar right off the bat due to the years in college. He came in as a superstar, literally.

    That’s what I think it was and is nothing crazy


    He just felt he was good enough to do what Lebron does and have did for years and he just want to prove it


    If you have any balls about yourselves you can understand :yeshrug:

    ether? If anything, he's giving lebron props on how great he (on and off the court) is and the demands and level of greatness one needs to be on his (lebron's) level

    Kyrie is playing really well this year but they still use this tired LeBron storyline.

    It kind of seems like the media doesn't care as much about him now that they can't prop him up as the anti-LeBron anymore.
