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.

Gotta give it to CBS for putting that picture of LeBron opening his mouth at the 76er's logo though.

LeBron James says Sixers are 'breakfast'

Sixers did run out on them early, basically 3 of the 4 games of this series. Game 1, that was a 14 point lead they blew in the 2nd quarter. Granted game 2 was a blow out, but game 3 another big Sixers lead was blown, even in game 4, the Sixers put a big lead on the Heat.In a couple of seasons, the Sixers will be doing to Lebron, Wade & Bosh, what the Pistons did to them last decade. The Sixers are young, learning how to win & lose in the playoffs. If the Sixers ever get as good as Iverson's Sixers for rebounding, the Heat/LeBron won't be talking about breakfast. LeBron's alcoholic mother will be packing him 3 meals every game, because it'll be an all day job. I thought Sunday's game, the Heat regressed, they tested out their end of the game effort again and like they have all season, failed to seal the deal when it came down to the last shot to tie or win. So what's their record against teams better than .500 again ? What's that ? Not very good. Maybe next season they'll break that bad habit ?

As for the Celtics, they shouldn't have swept the Knicks, the Knicks collapsed in one of those games and blew a win.

LeBron James says Sixers are 'breakfast'

That is an awfully bold statement from a guy who only has a promise ring to show for his achievments. Maybe in the offseason, whoever wins the title(and it will not be the Heat)  he can cry and ask to be traded to that city. This guy is such a jerk. He gloats when they are winning by 20 over an inferior team, but when they lose, he cries like a baby for his mothers boosom. Remember when he got eliminated in the Eastern Conference Championship a few years ago and refused to shake hands? Baby. He will have plenty of time to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner by championship time because the loser will be HOME!!!

 Robert Horry was one of the greatest assets to ever play this game... I remember him burying Orlando in Game 3 of the '95 Finals with a 3-pointer. You can't forget him destroying the hopes for Sacramento after Divac tipped the ball out to him so he could knock down the game-winner.

 Lakers, Spurs, Rockets. This man made a great impact on every team he played for. So you can put him up on that list even though people love the flashy names like Jordan, Bird, Bryant, etc.

I guess Robert Horry is up there with the best then? I love the ring argument.

 Ask the other NBA players??? How about watch the t.v. set every year to see who's dropping opponents in the Finals.
