ORLANDO, FL - MAY 30: LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers sits on the court after being fouled by the Orlando Magic in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2009 Playoffs at Amway Arena on May 30, 2009 in Orlando, Florida.

There's no denying that LeBron James is the best player in the NBA. There's no denying that he'll one day surpass some of the greatest we've ever seen play this game.

Unfortunately, there's also no denying that he's a sore loser.

After last night's Game-Six loss to the Orlando Magic that sent LeBron and the Cavs packing, James was no where to be seen.

He left the court without congratulating or talking to a single member of the Orlando Magic. Then after all was said and done he did not show up to the post-game press conference.

This is the same LeBron that has been eager to talk after sweeping each of the Cavs first and second round opponents. The same LeBron that "doesn't do radio" yet went on the Dan Patrick Show two weeks ago to interview with the best show on the radio.

Of course it didn't hurt that the interview would end up in Sports Illustrated either.

No, this LeBron James seems to hate losing so much that he won't even consider an interview, a post-game handshake, or even as much as a wink and nod letting Cavs fans know that he'll be back next year going for that same elusive title.

He will be back, but who will be there to help him?

We were all clearly shown that one player can't beat the cream of the crop in the NBA. Sure they can whip up on lesser competition, but when it comes to the elite teams you have to have more than one guy. Even if that guy is the "Chosen One."

LeBron is only 24. There will be plenty more chances for him. Will they come with Cleveland? Sure, if they do what they need to do and surround him with quality players to get them over the hump.

Hopefully over the offseason LeBron James will mature as a player, but even more as a person.

If there's one thing the NBA does not need it's another selfish, whiny megastar who doesn't know the meaning of sportsmanship.
