The team has been together for one year (Haslem - injury, Miller and Bibby have all recently joined the team and played major minutes in the playoffs), with very questionable depth, yet they are in game 6 of the Finals against a very good team and they basically gave away 2 of their 3 losses. 

I would agree with you, but they let their egos get in the way, with all the talk of how they were going to dominate, win 5 or 6 titles.

If they hadn't opened their mouths, it would not have been a failure.  But they wanted the target on their backs, they wanted to play the bad guys.  If you're going to do that, you better deliver, and they didn't.

LeBron failed.  He quit on his team, you could see it in his eyes.  He wanted no part of the 4th quarter.  And, when the other superstar has to get in your face in a finals game to motivate you, never mind Jordan. you're not even Pippen.
