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'

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...


They didn't look so inferior with Billups healthy and especially Amare healthy.... Rondo isn't exactly looking great against tougher defensive guards that are bigger then him. If they put Wade on him Rondo is going to have trouble. Sixers have a decent bench and solid Wing player in Iggy, and better depth at the big man then the Celtics who are really relying on O'Neal... Jemain and Shaq soon... which should be funny to watch...

I feel bad for Lebron. (you can smell the sarcasim, cant you?) He doesn't have the character & resolve to be the good guy, but he alos doesn't have the balls to be the bad guy. He killed two birds with one stone by fleeing to Miami. For a man that seeming has the world at his feet he is rather insecure. It must stem for his abandonment as a child. He has no identity. He is a poser.

Lebron James consistently nauseates. I think I'm going to puke.

Want to bet?

Lebron said, “Just finishing our breakfast.”  Anyhow, I'll be glad to take the bet that Miami eliminates the Celtics.

Ok, Sixers are breakfast.  Celtics are lunch, and Bulls are dinner.  Well, that would make sense because Lechoker will be out of meals for the finals.  Just like he was against the Spurs in '07.
The Finals would be dessert.

Will make the Heat losing and being eliminated sometime down the road even that more enjoyable.

I hate blogs in general because they're nothing but opinions but sites like CBS and "news" services CONTINUALLY treat them as actual reporters.  Ditch these stinking things and get some real friggin news by actual reporters out there!  Don't make me start my own blog and be the Blogger of All Bloggers.  Don't say I didn't warn you!

I'm by no means a Miami fan (Go Blazers!) but Golliver saying the Heat will be eliminated in the 2nd round is presumptious. Neither Boston or the Heat have an inside precense to speak of and the Heat's big 3 well ok big 2.5 are in their prime where Boston's are getting near the retread stage of their career. Just look at the Spurs series thus far. The Spurs look like a YMCA rec team. I still can't believe Old washed up Duncan made it to the Allstar game over Aldridge. So to say Miami will be eliminated in the 2nd round is utter rubbish. Miami if eliminated will be by a complete team.
