Miami Heat forward LeBron James compares closing out the Philadelphia 76ers to breakfast. Posted by Ben Golliver. lebron-eating

LeBron James and the Miami Heat are about to get eliminated by the Boston Celtics in the second round of the NBA Playoffs beginning next week, but that isn't stopping him from talking a little trash in advance of Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Palm Beach Post quotes James comparing closing out the 76ers to a morning meal
When asked about whether the three days of prep — rather than one — would make a big difference, LeBron James said tonight was about this: “Just finishing our breakfast.”
Continuing this logic, the Celtics become lunch, the Chicago Bulls serve as dinner and the NBA Finals would be Fourth Meal. James' breakfast line is heard in Jay-Z's Public Service Announcement and attributed by the Miami Herald to John Strickland, a friend of both James' and Jay-Z's.

In all seriousness, it's good to hear James so focused on the task at hand. There's nothing worse than an early round playoff series dragging out unnecessarily because the more talented team isn't totally locked in. (Loking at you, Los Angeles Lakers.) Just finish the deal so we can get to the real action.

Bottom line: the Heat should have swept the Sixers, and they know that better than anyone. In other words, tonight could get ugly. Look for the Heat to devour some scrambled Iguodala, a Brand muffin and maybe even a few Hawes cakes. OK, I'll stop. But only because you insist.

LeBron James says Sixers are 'breakfast'

So much hate...  Sixers are breakfast.  Has a man ever been hated so much for such a stupid reason??  Get over it morons. If you think the best player in the NBA will never get a ring, you must be as dumb as you sound.

LeBron James is an extraordinary talent.  There is no debating that.  There is also no debating the fact that he's a quitter.  He would be one of the last few pro athletes I would allow my son or daughter look up to or emulate.  He has ZERO heart and a terrible attitude.  He's everything that is wrong with highly paid primadona stars.   Lebron should watch the game 7's going on in the NHL to see what grit, heart and commitment are all about.   If you are a LeBron groupie, you should look in the mirror and question how big of a loser you are too.

It would seem that SD  Pride has eaten one too many special Bron-nies.  Let's not go overboard for a 5-peat until you get a 1-peat.

Words, Words, Words.  I thought Bullying was not PC.  WOW.  Miami will have Philly for breakfast.  Bulletin board material for sure.  I am old but even I can remember how well LaBron has played in playoff games that were meaningful.  (Not.)  Now he thinks that teaming up with a REAL allstar (Wade) and a REAL hanger on (Bosh) will take enough pressure off him to actually win something.  He has been around 7? years now.  If Miami wants to move to the finals, they need to end games with the ball in Wade's hands not the choaker.  In a week or so LaBron can "go fishin".

Who has more rings?  "Ringless" LeBron James, or the Sixers?  Know your role LeBron, you're NOBODY.
