Man up, LeBron!

As Jim Rome would say: "Man's game, LeBron!"
Cleavland didn't show up in Game 6 and the Magic took full advantage. The least you could have done was to Swallow your wounded pride, shake hands and congratulate Orlando in their advancement in the Finals, and face the press the same way Kobe would, or Shaq would if they were in your shoes. You don't slink off to the locker room and sulk. That's for the other players on the Cavs. You're the leader of the team. You sure as hell don't say, a day after the loss that you don't have any regret that you acted like a bitch.

You know me, he told the reporters in Cleveland on Sunday. I’m a competitor. “If somebody beats you up, you’re not going to congratulate them,” James said. “It doesn’t make sense for me to go over and shake somebody’s hand.”

If you can't take the heat that comes with being the leader of a basketball team, then you should drop the title of King James, and let someone else on the squad shoulder the responsibility of being leader.

Yeah that was bad. Then he made it worse by explaining he didn't shake hands because he is a "winner" say what? Again learning how to be a winner even when you lose was explained so well by the Andy Griffith show.

Hell even Kobe shook hands with the C's and Hugged Doc Rivers after the finals last year.
