NBA Playoffs: Will LeBron James Quit Against The Celtics Again?

LeBron James is one of those guys with a short memory. That, or he's a fan of revisionist history. Either way, James spoke out the other day regarding the opinion that he quit against the Boston Celtics in the playoffs last year as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

When asked whether he quit in the series last spring by ESPN, James called it "corny." That's funny, because here's what I remember: LeBron James standing on the perimeter, watching his teammates try to score in the waning moments of the series.

James played with a lackadaisical attitude, and for the world appeared to be content with losing. That's not acceptable from a man who was at one time considered the heir apparent to the Michael Jordan throne. It's not acceptable for fans who pay hundreds of dollars to sit in the nosebleeds. It's not acceptable at all.

This time, LeBron and his superfriends get to team up on the hardwood against the same team that embarrassed him in 2010. Will he show up or will Paul Pierce dominate? Can LeBron prove to the world that he's not a quitter? At this point, it may be too late -- but he really ought to try.
