Coach Keith Dambrot muses on what makes LeBron great
James showed his genius early on
by WKSU's JEFF ST. CLAIR


Reporter / Host
Jeff St. Clair
 
The Cleveland Cavs are down 3-1 in the Eastern Conference finals and are facing a must-win situation Thursday night. That's led to NBA analysts like Charley Rose talking about the teamwork of the Orlando Magic beating the one-man magic of Lebron James. But one of his early coaches says no one knows better than LeBron James the value of teamwork. And Keith Dambrot also says no one is more likely than James to draw superior play from all his teammates. Dambrot coached James first in weekend clinics, and then through two championship seasons at Akron'sSt.Vincent -St Mary High School. He says he saw a player with the emotional intelligence to draw the best from others.

My condolences to David Stern, as well as to the mass sports media. It would seem that your man-crush is on his way to watching the NBA Championship series from his living room.

Don’t get me wrong, I like LeBron James: he’s a tremendous basketball player, but I am completely over the media whirlwind praising him as the next (or better than) Michael Jordan. Come on guys… really? How many rings does James have? Again, he’s good, really good; he has the potential to be the best ever, but at this moment he is no where near Jordan. Let the man play, and let the future play out.

I love watching the Cavaliers go down 3-1, and yet still during every commercial break see three out of five commercials hailing Kobe and LeBron as the national championship match-up. What in the world are Nike and Vitamin Water going to do when LeBron is eliminated, and all of those “NBA Champion LeBron James” commercials (which you know have already been filmed) are essentially worthless?
