Daniel “Boobie” Gibson Takes A Shot At LeBron James For Taking Shots At The Cavaliers

With the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, the hate has been turned up to an all-time high, with LeBron James remaining squarely in the cross-hairs. The latest person to take aim is James’ former teammate and close friend Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.

Gibson is doing a weekly podcast with The Dugout Sports Show during the NBA playoffs and in the latest edition, he had some choice things to say about LeBron’s recent comments that he went to Miami in order “to team up with some guys that would never die down in the moment.”

“I take comments like that and when you speak out and you feel the need for everybody to hear what you are saying, it’s kind of like admission. By you saying that, I don’t think great players should feel the need to say this about a team or say that about a team. I think what it all boils down to if you’re great, you go play great, be great and everybody will realize you’re great. And you wouldn’t have to let it be known that everybody else was less great. Great players shouldn’t have to do that. So I feel like it’s kind of an admission. He might have needed some help. He might have needed to go somewhere and find someone who is a little greater so maybe he wouldn’t die down in those moments.”

I get Gibson (and any of LeBron’s other former teammates) still having the redass over their meal ticket leaving for greener pastures. And yet again, LeBron probably could have found a more diplomatic way to express his feelings, but watching the fourth quarter of Game One should have been proof enough that James found what he was looking for. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh stepped up in the final period the way LeBron’s teammates in Cleveland rarely did in their playoff defeats.

LeBron’s greatness as an individual player was never in doubt – two MVPs, a scoring title and seven All-Star appearances speak to that. But winning championships takes a team effort and whether is was Gibson, Mo Williams or anyone else, no one ever stepped up to to provide the necessary support to win a ring.

    Great players just dont join up with another great player in the prime of their careers. This is just the new age of the pampered athlete in america. Get it as easy and fast as you can.

  3. Fred says:

    Great players do team up. It’s just that there called “Free Agents” when they do it. When great players don’t have a legit number two, the team either gets them one or the great player aka “Free Agent” leaves when his contract is up. So please stop with all this nonsense.

      I agree

    • ImdaPoo says:

      Please name the ‘great players’, that were ‘free agents’ in their primes, only to join up with another elite player. I’ve been around basketball all my life and cant recall another future hall of famer, WITH THERE BEST BALL AHEAD OF HIM, jump on another elite player roster. But FrankenBron did!

        Shaq, Primetime, Gretsky, Karrem, Reggie White, Johnny Damon, Reggie Jackson, Penny, Grant hill, T-mac, Jimmie Foxx, greg maddux, Patrick Roy, Eric Dickerson, Barry Bonds and Babe Ruth…..He was on his 2nd contract with the Cavs and the owner didnt want to trade JJ hickson for A’mare. It’s called Free Agency. Most are upset because you cant up and leave your job to work somewhere else like Bron. Go knicks

        • ImdaPoo says:

          Go Knicks! LmAo they’ll never sniff a ring. Your 2nd scorer is a PF who doesnt rebound….good luck.

    Lebrons “great” performance in that Boston series in 2010 will never, ever be forgotton. For him to call out others who didnt “die down in the moment” is so hypocritical. He is the one who died down in that moment. He may win a ring with another team that already won one without him, but he will never live down that quitting performance on his way out of town.

  5. cool y0u hit it on the dot will submit 2 twitter

  6. ghost badge says:

    So, just to clear things up, who “died in the moment” in game 4? The box score and game tape isn’t really clear enough to me, so I was hoping you could clear it up with your wisdom.
