LeBron's already got a bit of a reputation for freezing in big moments. For locking up and not being able to function well enough to complete the task. So his performance at a Spain pool as he stood on a high dive terrified of jumping shouldn't exactly shock you.

The crowd is begging him -- "jump! jump! jump!" they chant -- and the announcer is egging him on. "Come on LeBron! Jump!" And yet LeBron stands there awkwardly peering over the board at the pool below as if there are circling sharks in it.

I don't blame LeBron though because you know what was going through LeBron's mind as he was balking there. "How much did I make last year? And how much will I lose if I pull a Greg Louganis here? Yeah, I don't think so you guys."

Finally, after someone steps up and shows him how it's done (his diving equivalent of Dwyane Wade, maybe?), LeBron steps up and executes a perfect... well, fall. What a moment.

Yep, this is the lockout.

Why are my posts being removed? The 2nd one I understand cause I guess cbs is scared of a little swearing on their boards, but the first one had no swearing whatsoever in the post, it was mearly just an observation and should have for no reason be taken down. I've seen posts on cbs 10 times worse that what I've written so cbs stop being little girls and just let people speak their mind.
