Video: You are wrong about LeBron James, Bulls fans

We can all appreciate your enthusiasm, Chicago Bulls fans. But at the risk of never being allowed to drink an Old Style or eat at Hot Doug's again, I must disagree with your pithy assessment. To wit:

• LeBron James is averaging 26 points on 46.3 percent shooting from the field, 36.8 percent from 3-point range and 77.9 percent shooting from the line, 8.9 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.5 blocks per game for the playoffs;

• He has posted the postseason's third-highest Player Efficiency Rating, according to's John Hollinger, just behind Chris Paul and eventual opponent Dirk Nowitzki;

• He held Derrick Rose, the NBA's Most Valuable Player, who is about six inches shorter, 60 pounds lighter and the most explosive guard in the world, to an obscene 6.3 percent from the field in the Eastern Conference Finals; and

• He has put up narrative-deflating numbers in the clutch during the Miami Heat's run to the NBA Finals.

Yep, the math all checks out. LeBron James does not suck. Except, of course, when he totally sucks. It's a classic brain-buster, which is word to Tully Blanchard.
