LeBron Takes Swipe At Wizards


I wish I was dunking on Washington right now. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)


It's a tired cliché to say that a rivalry cannot exist if one team always wins. I contend that a rivalry is very much alive so long as both sides continue to share hatred and contempt for each other. The Washington Wizards lost three consecutive first round series to the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2006-08, but the venom has never subsided (mostly because the Wizards believe they outplayed Cleveland in 2006 and were not at full strength the last two series).

The bad blood between the two teams likely won't end anytime soon, so long as the principal characters on both sides keep taking swipes. And leave it up to the newly crowned most valuable player LeBron James to bring up Washington while the Cavaliers are overpowering teams like a Manny Pacquiao left hook this postseason.

You'd think that the Wizards would be long forgotten, with Washington finishing with the worst record in the Eastern Conference and hoping for some lottery luck and the Cavaliers a championship-caliber team staring down an unimpeded path to the NBA Finals. But before the Cavaliers smashed the Atlanta Hawks 105-85 -- Cleveland's sixth consecutive double-digit win this postseason -- James was asked about the suspensions the league levied on Orlando's Rafer Alston and the Los Angeles Lakers' Derek Fisher and used the opportunity to needle the Wizards.

He mocked the Wizards for trying to get tough with him last postseason, a tactic that led to Cleveland Coach Mike Brown pounding tables and some amusing face scrunches, constant lip-touching and nauseating over-acting by James. The crack-the-could be-king tactics also failed to slow down James and the Cavaliers, who beat a banged up Wizards team in six games.

"Washington tried something and it didn't work," James told reporters in Cleveland last night. "They lost in the first round again. We all know Washington is not a physical team. They tried to be physical and they lost."

James got knocked down more times in the first quarter of Game 1 of last year's first round series against the Wizards than he has been against Detroit and Atlanta this postseason, when he's been basically been an endless loop of highlight reel dunks.

In that series against Washington, Andray Blatche fouled him in the mouth; Brendan Haywood got ejected for knocking him to the ground while setting a screen and standing over him; Haywood later shoved him and sent him soaring into photographers along the baseline; DeShawn Stevenson nearly took off his head -- although he did knock off James's headband -- while attempting to block a shot; and Darius Songaila got a one-game suspension before the decisive Game 6 for striking James in the neck and face after he got tangled up with James.


C'mon. Who gets suspended for this? (Phil Masturzo/Akron Beacon Journal)

But while Brown contended that James was hit so much that he "could've played for the Browns" and James said the Wizards "try to hurt me," you could argue that James actually had the best hit of the series -- when he retaliated to Blatche's hard foul by clubbing Blatche in the face with an errant right elbow. James only got a flagrant foul penalty one -- a few days after the game, which the league never officially announced.

I've tried to watch Cleveland play this postseason, but it's been unbearable. It's been unfair to classify their games as competitions, they've been so lopsided. I cannot figure out if the Cavaliers are that good or if their opponents are that bad. I'm sure it's somewhere in the middle. They got a uninterested Pistons team that already had vacations planned to start after Game 4, and now they have a Hawks team that has already lost five playoff games by double-digits and is decimated by injuries to starters Al Horford, Marvin Williams and now Joe Johnson, who sprained his ankle in the third quarter last night.

I can only give the Cavaliers their props because they are incredibly focused and have been handling their business in a major way, eliminating all suspense before halftime of all of their games. But I get the feeling that James and the Cavaliers are pretty bored and wish that they had the Wizards to challenge them -- or at least offer some entertaining fodder.

This is the second time this postseason that James has made a comment about Washington. Before the Cavaliers played Detroit, James talked about how the motivation to beat the Pistons was simply to win and advance, unlike their previous first-round matchups against the Wizards.

"We really hated them," James said. "It was easy to dial in against them."

Who says this isn't a rivalry?

What a class a Jerk and egomaniac Lebron is. Yea the dude has skills, but there is something about him that I find irritating and I can't quite put my finger on it. Yea, he knows that him and his band of merrymen did not want to face a healthy Wiz squad in the playoffs and he as much admitted it before the playoffs started when asked. Now that he doesn't have to worry about facing them he talks smack. Oh well, we will see what 2010 brings. Man, how I want them to lose. I hate that team.

Posted by: ivyleague | May 8, 2009 11:33 AM

The bringing up of the Wizards wasn't classy, then again it's hard to dispute anything he said. He calls it like it is. The Wizards aren't a physical team. He knows it, we know it, heck -- the Wizards have to know it. Instead of handling it the way the team has in years past, the team should try a different approach. As we've seen with Lebron, you just can't win. He evades suspension when it's obvious, he calls out teams with his rap star entourage, and he also takes Kevin Garnett's pregame routine and carbon copy's it.

Posted by: wizfan305 | May 8, 2009 11:45 AM

We so need Griffin to have our own physical monster so the King can get a taste of his own medicine.

Posted by: restonhoops | May 8, 2009 11:46 AM

LeBron is trying to create something for people to talk about because he knows that so far both of the Cavs series have not been entertaining.

I'll give him credit for being an entertainer on and off the court. He's playing exactly by the rules of being a celebrity, which is keeping yourself in the news any way possible.

Posted by: dcsports12 | May 8, 2009 11:47 AM

He's just woofin'. Fact is, Gilbert faced LeBron once, and which team won? That's all he really cares about, and why he has to take the time for a jab now.

When it counted most, the Cavs lost.

It's a blueprint for LA or Denver, however. Like the Wiz, those are both offensive squads that aren't naturally physical but can elevate their game when inspired.

Posted by: Samson151 | May 8, 2009 11:50 AM

That was probably the first interesting LeBron James has ever said in an interview...as for his comment, he and Coach Brown sure cried a lot last post season about the Wizards play -- I am sure he prefers not getting knocked around.

We add Blake Griffin and that is at least 6 more tough fouls that can be laid on James should the Wiz face the Cavs in the playoffs. That is also a reason for not trading Etan next year. Keep him around to give us a player whose sole purpose is to give 3 hard fouls a game and agitate the Cavs. We would have spare PFs while keeping our scorers above the fray.

Posted by: Chad32 | May 8, 2009 11:56 AM

For all his skills, LeBron is a petty prima-donna.

Could you imagine players like MJ or Magic sitting there making comments like that?

Hey LeBoohoo, if Washington is such a no-account team of wannabes then why are they still on your mind ONE YEAR LATER!?

Posted by: prescrunk | May 8, 2009 12:11 PM

Let him talk. He knows that he doesn't want to face a healthy wizards team. If he wasn't impressed by the wizards, they wouldn't be on his mind. He knows it wouldn't be a cakewalk like Detroit and Atlanta.

The past 3 years, the Cavaliers were the luckiest team in the playoffs. EVERYBODY wanted to play the Wiz without Gilbert and Caron, and then with a 1-legged Gilbert. This year, he got Detroit who had no fight in them, and Atlanta who was decimated by injuries just before the 2nd round and now Joe Johnson is out.

My question is, with the injury God's on Cleveland's side, you would think they are a team of destiny. Couple that with superstar treatment, what do you get to date?

ZERO championships. He better when it this year because they ain't getting past us next year.

Talk to me!

I guess when you go from being a pretty good team to being the worst team in basketballdom you need to find something to talk about, some sort of rallying call. Quit your whining. The series between the Cavs and the Wizards were fun to watch, but it wasn't for the basketball, it was for the sheer amount of flagrant fouls that were thrown around by Washington. When you think dirty, you think Washington, that is why James brought up the Wizards when he was asked about dirty plays. But I guess If you haven't got the skills you need to find some way to win, or at least bring the other team down to your level. Better luck next year Wizards.

When people treat one person/team as a favorite and the other person/team as a stepchild, you will get hostility directed toward the favored.

The reason Artest the stepchild got in Kobe's face was because the superstar did something and the refs overlooked it. The same goes for LeBron. The refs let him travel and cry to victories in the Cleve/Wash series #1. Ok, if that's gonna happen, the stepchild decides "f__k up your favorite child". Owe, we in DC are confident a healthy wizards team can beat cleveland. Let's see next year!

Hollar at that!

Posted by: G-Man11 | May 8, 2009 12:33 PM

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Lebron have to get away with 2 blatant travels in order to beat the Wizards the first time we met them in the playoffs? Yeah the refs and the whole NBA cater to Lebron and now he thinks hes a god. If Lebron played in the late 80's, early 90's when you used to have to try to kill someone to get ejected he'd never make it. Lebron cracks me up because I hear how "big" and strong he is but he doesn't play a physical game. When someone gets physical with him the refs bail him out with foul calls.

Talk about physical? Wasn't Lebron the guy who ran into an official about a month back and he dropped to the ground like a "sack of potato's" and didn't get up for about 5 minutes? Anytime Lebron gets hit hard he lays on the ground for like 10 minutes. Lebron is the definition of a "pu$$" and he's soft. He will never be MJ or Magic and if he faced MJ or Magic back in the day, they would expose him for an overhyped fraud. Lebron, you guys will not win the title next year and if the wizards are healthy we will dominate you next year. Hell, we beat you the 1 game Arenas played and he was about 60%.

Posted by: DCSportsFan28 | May 8, 2009 12:36 PM

If the Nuggests can somehow come out of the West, I'd love to see Birdman (Anderson) go against James! Then he could see what being physical (without being dirty) is all about. And Caoch Brown would have something to whine to the reporters about after every game!

Posted by: Dougmacintyre | May 8, 2009 12:37 PM

Correction from previous post, you will not win the title this year. Mark my words.

Posted by: DCSportsFan28 | May 8, 2009 12:39 PM

Good luck G-Mann, maybe the 4th time will be the charm. IF you make it to the playoffs, which I hope you do, the Wizards will again fail. The Cavs are so much better than they were in 06, you'd need LeBron's clone on your team to have a chance. Truth is, even if he was the Wizards are so used to losing you'd still lose.

stevenmpalmer, why don't you go to the Cav/'s message board since you seem to favor queen James. (I forgot ain't nothing to do in depessed Cleveland) We Wiz fans know the deal and so does Lebron. Him and Brown were quite glad the Wiz were no where to be found this playoffs.

Let's see, what was that date again? April 2, that's it. The Cavs came to Washington, ready to blow the hated Wiz out of the water in front of a sell-out crowd. Arenas' first game back, Haywood only a few ahead of him, and the Cavs having lost only 14 games while the Wiz had only 18 victories in this disaster of a season -- and LeBron was brilliant with 31 and 9 bounds, 8 assists, only 1 personal foul because as we all know, LeBron doesn't foul... but wait, was that 6, count them, 6 turnovers? And a +/- when he was on the court of (choke) -13?

Who could believe the Wiz actually won this game? The defense-challenged, nonphysical wussy Wiz?

Bet the Lakers and the Nuggets are cueing that tape up before he finals.

Posted by: Samson151 | May 8, 2009 12:54 PM

As talented as LeTravel is, the fact that he has to resort to bush league tactics just belittles him. I am sure Cleveland fans don't care. But I have never heard Kobe whining as much as LeTravel does.

Posted by: tundey | May 8, 2009 1:29 PM

Scroll over to the Haywood interview again... This is EXACTLY why Brendan said we need a bruising forward. We cannot match up successfully against Cleveland without a real enforcer. Brendan can handle the aging Z... We need someone who can go toe to toe (and then some) with Andy. Taser, a healthy DeShawn and Caron can deal with LeBron. Arenas can outscore and outmuscle (if he so chooses) Mo... Would still be nice to have a two guard to offset D West.

Posted by: khrabb | May 8, 2009 1:38 PM

lebron just wants everyone to look at him and the league obliges, a great player with a coddled, over-priviledged personality, in the NBA surely this can't be true

I'm pretty sure "nauseated" wins that match up, given that "nautious" isn't an actual word.

Posted by: kalo_rama | May 8, 2009 2:07 PM

The Crabdribbler has no class and is treated with kid gloves by the refs and the league. Those suspensions given Haywood and Songalia were a complete joke, especially when LeTravel almost decapitated my boy Blatche and nothing happened, as usual. Fact is, the Wiz beat those fools twice is DC this year. Next season, with a healthy Gil/Brendan (and maybe Blake G.), it will be on like Donkey Kong--GO WIZARDS!!

Posted by: thebone | May 8, 2009 2:33 PM

Ok what a frakking tool LeCrabDribble is. Seriously why is he taking shots at a team that won 19 games and he's in the 2nd round of the playoffs. To me that just shows the wiz 'get' to him, lol. Never like him anyways so who cares. Even back when he was drafted I didn't think his supposed age was accurate.

My question is, Which is it, LeBron? You can't say at one point "The Wiz aren't physical", then later talk about how they pound you unfairly. Isn't that physical play? Seems there's some confusion in the King's mind.

Good luck to you Stevenpalmer. Good luck this year winning the championship, and then good luck trying to re-sign LeBoohoo.

Let's see how loyal you stay to him when he shows Cleveland the bird and goes galavanting off to New York so he can kick it with Jay-Z and escape the constant stench of that lake in Cleveland.

Let's see how much you are willing to troll on his behalf when he's flopping and grimacing for the Knicks, and the leftovers of your Cavs team are the ones getting lit up with the foul calls.

I wonder what Mike Brown would have to say after one of those games about the reffing when the tables are turned. Do you think he would "out" LeBron as the flopping sissy that he really is after a 105-70 loss and 4 of his players fouled out b/c they looked at LeBron in a funny way and LeBoohoo started grimacing and holding his jaw?

...that is if he's still around and the Cavs don't fire his arse b/c without LeBron they know they will need a real head coach and not just some stooge Gatorade-carrier for LeBoohoo.

I have to agree on the games against the Cavs. ATL might as well forfeit the next 2 games. ATL and DET literally look like Stern had a meeting and told them they cannot win. thus the teams are playling like why bother. I know joe johnson is not an emotional guy but he looks downright aloof. the season is over 90 games old and he can't go over/under a pick set by Delonte' West? Varajao is hitting turnaround jumpers and 10-footers. let's hope the Magic at least stand up and play them tough for 4-games. if you are going to lose, lose with dignity.

Posted by: oknow1 | May 8, 2009 3:57 PM

Mike, I think you're better served not mentioning this "diss" b/c Lebron is pretty much untouchable right now. He's too good.

Les BouleS don't have the resources to beat them, and by bringing them up, it'll just be even more evident that Les BouleS can't stop his smack talk.

Posted by: DC_MAN88 | May 8, 2009 7:34 PM

I find LBJ's comments upsetting and rude and absolutely true. the only guys wizards try to muscle or beat up are LBJ and each other. As much as we hate it we know the wiz ain't a 15 man goon squad. we got one guy nicknamed tough juice and a bunch of tryna-bees. It's always comical when traditionally punk as$ guys try to swell up and act tough.

Lebron can keep talkin till we shut him up.
All that crazy dallas fan talk ain't ease up til the skins took a couple games from them and made it to the playoffs.

Posted by: lilhollywood10 | May 8, 2009 9:08 PM

"We all know the Wizards are not a physical team". If there's any justice in the world, the Wizards will get the first pick and those words will come back to haunt James.

Posted by: satchmore | May 8, 2009 10:06 PM

It’s good to know there are people out there who can’t stand Lebron as much as me. The Wizards did get physical but that was the only way to keep him from just walking to the front of the rim like he has been doing this year in the playoffs.

Also Cleveland is a very physical/dirty team. Illgauskas, James, Wallace, Smith and Varejao are kings of the offensive foul (charge, moving screens and over the back fouls) but the refs never call it

Weird conspiracy thought, but no NBA player has ever tested positive for steroids. If there was one player in the league that I would suspect of roiding up it would be Lebaby. Physical specimens like him aren't born, they are created in labs

Get out of the first round first. Cavs will "SeEk AnD dEsTrOy" the rest of the teams left in the playoffs. We might even invite the City of Washington to our parade after we win the crown from the L.A. Fakers.

LeBron's sense of entitlement really bothers me. He can play some ball, but talk about a grade-A prima donna. There is nothing about the guy that I find redeeming. I don't know what I dislike more: his knack for saying obnoxious comments, his preferential treatment by the refs and league, his lame commercials, or the fact that he thinks he is better than MJ.

Yes and the sorry Wizards and the sorry media shills that cover them need to make it sound like they actually beat the Cavs at any time when it mattered or determined the outcome of a series. They havent. They have a rivalry built of one sided outcomes and too much talking from losers.

The Wiz are light in mental toughness, light in the talent department and have a leader who is so bizarre it is hard to describe.

No NBA player has walked the talk and said the right things about team and achievement more than LeBron...no other NBA star is even close to his maturity and skill.

Just a bunch of little bitty jealous haters. Keep whining....not winning...

Keep on wimpering about a superior team and a superior organization.

Motivation only takes you so far. Les BouleS don't have the talent to deal with LeBron, and now he's both an offensive and defensive star to go along with his natural ability to create.

I can't think of another player who's excelled at all 3 categories as of late.

Posted by: DC_MAN88 | May 10, 2009 9:37 PM

James is showing his true colors. He he "protected" by the league.

The last time Cleveland was challenged was by an injured plagued Wizards team TWICE.

Glad to know that when James thinks of a time when he had to bring his A+ game was verses the Wizards... Let the 09-10 season begin...

Posted by: 2StepsAway | May 11, 2009 6:33 PM

as long as the wizards are "led" by a wannabe all-star who plays matador defense, and have a bench player who thinks it's a big deal to celebrate sinking a 3 down when 20 points, lebron will have any right not to take the wizards seriously. as for "brenda" aka vanilla ice, let's see him break double digits in points and/or rebounds before he tells lebron to just play basketball.
