No, I'm pretty much used to it. I was rooting hard for the Cavs on Christmas. Kyrie being the alpha dog makes it easier for me. But, I'm on the wrong side of history and all that. It happens.

And I'm the king of England. See, both of us can make things up.

I'm not sure what world you live in but better shooter doesn't equate to alpha dog. Unless you're arguing for Joe Johnson and Big Shot Rob Horry as the two biggest alpha dogs in NBA history.

Early in his career, Kyrie appears far more comfortable with ball in his hands at the end of a game than Lebron ever has been. Good shooting is a part of the package, but not all of it. Kyrie holding the ball, shooting or dishing to a cutting Lebron. That's a better recipe than Lebron with the ball, making the decisions.

Pretty clear Lebron is the alpha dog of the NBA.

What you're describing is typical for most guards vs. forwards. And it's 99% better shooting. You should know, as you and many others used to on LeBron for deferring to a teammate for the last shot. He usually set them up for said last shot.

Your total lack of understanding of what you are watching and your latent hatred of LeBron James continues to amaze me.

I still can't believe that college crowd heckled Kerr over his father's murder during a game. Lowest of the low.

James has been the alpha dog of the NBA for a while. Not sure why you are being a putz about me saying that, but you're a moron, so I don't give it much more than a passing thought.

Basketball is a team game, there is no use arguing who is the best player in the world, because that can't be determined.

LeBron is the best player on his team, and has been for quite some time. But he would not have won the title without his teammates.
