And why the Jews are angry with Lebron, Wade and Bosh:
"Still, the biggest reason that they were so emboldened to mock Nowitzki is Dirk is an NBA star belonging to a growing minority within the league, and it has nothing to do with European roots, the way those players get openly mocked and ridiculed as soft, unworthy of franchise star status.
Increasingly, there are two NBAs: the LeBron-CAA NBA, and everyone else.
James has been a part of recruiting everyone else over to his side – Wade, Chris Bosh(notes), Carmelo Anthony(notes), Chris Paul(notes). And now, the New Jersey Nets’ Deron Williams(notes) is strongly considering joining up with CAA after firing his longtime agent. Within the NBA, this surprised people because Williams had always been so fiercely independent. He never star-gazed James like most of his young teammates, and never seemed inclined to follow.
“LeBron has almost become a movement within the league,” says a league executive who’ll recruit these players in 2012. “With Worldwide Wes [CAA agent William Wesley] and him, you’re making a decision as a player to be packaged the way they packaged him. They follow him.”
James and Wade are taking this league over, and they’ll dominate the next several seasons. Their agents are determined to leverage that into complete control of the league’s elite, and LeBron’s figured out a way to profit, too.
The Washington’s Post Mike Wise reported on a James’ text message to an NBA player in free agency that said simply, “Yo, this is King James.” This is precisely how he has done it with the college players that he’s recruited for CAA and his marketing company, LRMR. This was a true a year ago when Y! Sports reported on it, and it’s still true now.
Two years ago, an All-American college player told his coach that James called him and the young player didn’t recognize the number.
“This is the King,” the voice said.
The kid was like, “Huh?”
“This is the King.”
Yes, LeBron’s taking over and all, but Dirk Nowitzki(notes) isn’t one of his acolytes, nor one of his fans. There’s a thirtysomething core of champions – Kobe Bryant(notes), Tim Duncan(notes), Kevin Garnett(notes), and so on – who don’t swoon in the King’s presence. They don’t want his marketing company, his agents, his style.
For now, Dirk wants to beat James and Wade, wants an NBA championship, and that’s part of the reason why the Heat’s stars are so openly willing to mock him.
Modern NBA history doesn’t offer many examples of the more talented team losing in the Finals, but it could happen this year. This should’ve been on Wade’s mind when he started playing the clown for cameras the afternoon of Game 5, dragging a willing James into a sideshow that he didn’t need now.
Three years ago, Wade bailed out James in a title game in Beijing, but this is different. When LeBron James stares into space, bites his nails and disengages late in another championship game, Wade won’t have Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard(notes) to help. And this isn’t Spain they’re trying to beat, but the tough, willful Mavericks of Dirk Nowitzki.
Feel free to mock Nowitzki, but when the fourth quarter comes on Sunday night, Dwyane Wade knows the superstars who can be counted upon, and knows the ones who’ve faked their way through this in the past."
The writer forget to add the three referees, as the Heat's opponent have so far been winning all games at the free throw line. Numbers don't lie.
I'm loving this, the "pack animals" are standing their ground, who cares about some trophy, they're all still going to the Hall of Fame and there are many player in there without some bogus trophy. What will matter is their legacy off the court and I dare to say that I look forward to appreciating their artistry as they carve out a new future for Black professional athletes in this racist nation and the rest of the world. Who knew bron-bron was actually the JayZee of the sports world.
