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'

I have rooted for the Sixers for over 30 years now.  So, I'm no fan of the Celtics.  That said, I will thoroughly enjoy the whipping that the Celts are about to put on LeBaby and the Heat (apolgies to the only class act in Miami, D. Wade).  I will also enjoy next year when the Bulls beat them and the year after that when it's the Sixers sending them home without their dessert.

I don't understand how Lebron can disrespect a whole team with a comment like that, quit on the Cavs, and almost every player in the NBA acts like he is thier best friend??? If I were on the Cavs or 76'ers I wouldn't give this guy the time of day! And every play around the NBA should see that he does not respect anyone and will disrespect anyone at anytime.

Sure, the Sixers are breakfast, and LeBron is what happens in the bathroom about an hour later.

"The Finals would be dessert."   That honestly has to be one of the gayest things ever posted.  I was thinking it was just a sarcastic joke comment, then I saw it was from a Miami fan trying to be all tough.  Fucking gay.


@ Your mother didnt think I was gay.  How was I trying to be tough by saying the finals would be dessert?    I swear these internet bloggers talk a lot of BS when they are on the internet but wouldnt look me in the eye in person.

Lebron has not paid much attention to this series apparently.  Despite the lack of talent, the sixers have been in every game and with a few breaks could easily be up 3-1.  A comment such as this can provide a spark for the sixers.  This is a stupid comment to make but this kind of arrogance can be expected from a man that would hold a tv special to announce what team he is playing for.
