Has The Hatred Directed At Lebron James Gone Too Far?

Tonight could be the night that Lebron James finally wins his NBA championship. I think the Miami Heat will crush the Oklahoma Thunder on Thursday night to win the 2012 NBA Championship. It will be a big moment for the player who still has his haters. Has the hatred of Lebron James gone too far?

I think so. I've been extremely critical of Lebron. James has brought much of the hatred upon himself. He has been immature at times and also directed disrespectful comments at his critics. 

Since last year's debacle on ESPN where he announced he was signing with the Heat, hatred has been directed towards James.

This year, he's seemed to mature into the veteran player that he is and also grown into a leader. I think he's reflected on the past and his immaturity. I say that because James has been phenomenal during the 2012 playoffs.

When Chris Bosch was injured, James stepped up. When Dwyane Wade played poorly, James stepped up. In fact James has played well in every game and has been the team's leader. James has averaged
30.5 points per game, the most in this year's playoffs. I think it's hard to criticize the man right now.

When James had to come out in the 4th quarter of game 4, his critics jumped on the opportunity to criticize him. Some hockey players even questioned his toughness. That's absurd. No matter my criticisms of James have been, I don't think he would want to leave the game.

James has shown this year that he has taken his game to the next level. He won another NBA MVP award and then elevated his game in the playoffs. 

Tonight he will have the last laugh. He will be laughing at all his critics when he's champion of the world.
If James wins and NBA title this year, his critics will need to shut up. That includes me. The big criticism against James has been his inability to win in the playoffs. I've even called him Lebusto and someone I know calls him Lebrick. I love the nickname Lebrick but that name might have to be retired tonight.

Tonight that can all change. The hatred directed at Lebron James has gone too far. It seems as if he's criticized when he breathes, sleeps and eats. No matter what he does he is criticized. Tonight, James has a great chance at silencing his critics.

Sports fans like me, don't want to see him win a championship. We might be disappointed on Thursday. The Heat are going to be champions of the NBA and Lebron is going to be all smiles!
