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'

Quote DreErase1217: Exactly... Yeah Philly was a .500 team this year but if they're "breakfast," as LeFraud so eloquently put it, why is the series still going? Boston sweeps the rug out from under the Knicks: that's how a good team deals with an inferior team. Knicks are way better than the Sixers, so I'm going to laugh when Miami gets the sense knocked out of them by the C's. Keep talking trash, LeBron: the only one buying into it is you...

So, I guess the Celtics were never a good team until this season?  You know, since this is the first time they have swept a playoff opponent since 92ish!Maybe the Lakers and the Spurs weren't good teams this year neither, Spurs are down in their series and the Lakers are struggling in theirs against "inferior teams".Chicago struggled mightily in their series as well, didn't get the sweep neither, guess they aren't a good team neither.
Failed logic is failed

The guy only cares about himself he sold out on Clev he will sell out on miami he would sell out on his own family. the guy trash talks teams that have less talent and he comes from one of the most over rated teams in the NBA. i cannot wait til they lose and if they were so good in the first place why are we going to game 5. LALOSERS DAY IS COMMING SOON.

I'm not against players talking trash but for Lebron disrespect a whole organization in the 76ers, a young team with a respectful coach in Doug Collins, is true garbage.  Well Lebron you may get your dinner or dessert but you may get an upset stomach agaisnt Boston, Chicago or the Lakers, Bon Appetite.

how does any want to see these Heat players win,with the way they acted before the season and the way James made of his decision to go there unless you live in or near Miami why would you want them to winI? I hope the Celtics beat their asses into submission so the whole country can sit back and laugh at them for acting like such fools.

Hard to believe that in a short period of time James has gone from one of the most liked..to possible to most hated player in the NBA.

The thing was with the Cavs we did not hear James talk too much..I had no idea James was that stupid and classless.  

James should have followed this advice.  "It is better to say nothing and have people think you are stupid..than to speak and remove all doubt"

Lebron aka LaFraud... is the worst kind of player. Blessed with a skillset almost all would kill for, yet he cries and whines worse than any player in the league. The only way Miami beats Boston, is if Boston beats themselves. Your delusional if you think the Knicks would have won this series with all their players. They probably would have won one or two at most. No one on the Heat can stop Rondo and JO will own the paint against their big men (scrubs). Celtics in 6, because Lebron will quit after a Celtic shellacking in game 5. Quote it.
