to become the second greatest player of all-time, he has a chance to pass out MJ (not likely) he's just on a different level right now. I can't stand the Heat but I know how to recognize greatness when I see it..
LBJ would take MJ to school.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
So tough to compare players across generations like this. But both are ridiculous. Lebron will end up right near the top.
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
we'll see how he does once wade is over the hill

I saw Lebron in person he looks more like 6 9 than 6 8 and he's chiseled as a rock, his head is in the right place now and doesn't have the pressure of winning his first title anymore. He might win the next 3 MVP's along with the next 3 titles..
Lebron plays in an easier generation. Jordan played in a generation where defense was actually allowed, and teams like the Knicks, Heat, Blazers, and others would punch you in the mouth with great, physical defense. This is the worst generation of basketball I have seen, and that's why I don't watch anymore.
For instance, Howard would be considered an average center in Jordan's era. Hakeem, Ewing, Robinson, Smits, and others would have dominated Howard. Hell, great PF's like Barkley, Malone and even a scrappy Rodman would have frustrated the hell out of Howard. But today, he is considered God when healthy.
Let the hate begin.
There's nothing LJ can do to catch Michael's legacy. But LJ is the best player of all time. But Michael gets the GOAT tag. Weird I know.
I have tried to watch the NBA twice this season, couldn't get past a few minutes
The game today is just sad and terrible for so many reasons
Amen. Spot on.
Reminds me of a joke.
"If I wanted to watch a bunch of black people not care about defense, I'd go to a courthouse."
Agreed. IMO the Golden Age of hoops was 1955-1960.
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
You old guys need to figure it out honestly.
Lebron is going to be GOAT SF and top 2 all-time regardless if you like it or not.
We get it, you like it up the poop chute from Jordan and wish he still played. Move on and appreciate what we have.
Kobe, Tim Duncan, KG, Durant, Lebron are all all-time great players.
Well it depends what Dwight Howard you are talking about, the D12 in his MAgic is one of the best defensive Centers of all-time this Dwight isn't close to him. Your point about the players yes they had great Big's but the athletes are 10x better in today's game. Compare players like John Stocton to Westbrook, Drexler to Durant, Blake Griffin to Barkley.
I'm 27. I don't consider that old. I just prefer an era where defense was played, and the league was filled with great basketball players instead of just great athletes trying to play basketball.
Barkley is 1000000x the player Griffin is. Griffin has no moves and cries at the first moment of any contact
So then you should love watching Lebron. He combines the two.
Expansion has also hurt the product. Atleast 6 teams should be contracted.
Lmao this guy doesn't watch the NBA, say that to KG who defends each pick and roll like his life depends on it. He said he would die on the NBA court. Avery Bradley guards his man the full court distance and hounds him like flies on crap. Your point that the NBA doesn't play defense how come Jimer Fredette, JJ redick and Adam Morrison were unguardable in College and can barely even score in the NBA. HOw the hell do you expect to guard Lebron, Durant and Kobe?

Kobe, Lebron, and KG are total docuhebag retards though
Guys like Jordan, Magic, Larry B, Barkley, and others were great personalities
Back then basketball players were cool, now they are gucci backpack wearing chicks with dicks
You should probably get yourself some oversized glasses
The games evolve. Wilt and many others didn't have a lot of rules in place today that completely change the game. Like the three point line for instance.
Jordan is a complete jerk off just like he was in his prime. More like great asshole.
The NBA does that on purpose since the Malice in the Palace they don't want them dressing like Thugs b/c white ppl will be turned off by it. I don't know one single white person over the age 30 who watches the NBA?
