    Yeah sure he's horrible. Ask 30 NBA GMs would they be willing to sign him to a max deal after the season. How many would say yes?

    Lebron is overrated. People don't understand what that word really means. He can be the best and still be overrated. I think most basketball minds understand his limitations. When he is THE guy, he will fall flat on his face in embarrassing fashion. It took a missed slap to Rondo's head 2 years ago to win him title 1 and it took a Spurs colossal melt down and a Ray Allen clutch shot to win him title 2. Guy should honestly still be ringless which is downright pathetic considering how talented that team is.

    Yeah you are right. That Scottie Pippen was a lucky guy, he didn't do shit and somehow got into the Hall of Fame. And its baffling how the Bulls had the league's most effective defense in 4 of their 6 title years since MJ couldn't possibly defend all 5 guys on the court. Yep MJ won 6 titles all by himself.

    ^MJ didn't do it alone. But MJ was the guy on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and then did it again the next week for 6 years running. He could have easily won 8 in a row if he hadn't went through whatever shit he went through with his dad and baseball. Not going to pretend to know the answers there.

    Lebron will NEVER be that guy. HE is a goof, a clown, and a guy who wants to surround himself with greatness in the clutch because he could never achieve it alone.

    MJ had Pippen. But you think he goes title-less without Pippen? This is fucking MJ, he woulda found a way to win. Maybe not 6, but he'd have won some.

    lmao c'mon Balco, the specific argument you are going with here gives you no stance

    If anything we don't know what MJ could do by himself. Lebron has shown he could carry a team of absolute scrubs to consistent 60+ win seasons and even got the NBA finals. That is with Delonte West or Zydrunas Illgauskis as his second best player. Think about that for a moment

    Lebron left Cleveland and they went from 60+ win team to one of the worst teams in the history of the game

    MJ left the Bulls and they went from NBA champs to 55 win team and NBA title contenders that got beat by a very good knicks team in 7 games. So basically MJ was already on a championship caliber team without him and when you put him on it they cruised to titles every year

    You think Miami is contending for a title without Lebron? They would be closer to the Knicks and Nets than Indiana, OKC and SA. Wade is good for maybe 4 or 5 good games in the playoffs at most. He was pretty useless most of last year. I think Chris Bosh scored 0 points in game 7 vs SA

    Miami has obtained a strong group of role players, but to think Wade the last two years is anywhere even near the level Pippen was on those title teams is insane. Wade has the body of a 45 year old and might retire within 2-3 years

    And you think Lebron was going to go titleless? What stacked team does he even have? People throw around Wade's name like he is the same guy from 2006. His game deteriorated at an insane rate. He has absolutely no outside game, you don't even have to defend him outside the arc. And he has nowhere near the explosiveness he had in his prime to slash and get to the rim.

    He is still a good player, far from great though. Durant was right at the start of the year when he said Wade is not a top 10 player in the NBA

    Chalmers is underrated
    Wade can score when healthy
    Bosh is underrated. Under-utilized on heat obviously.
    Battier hit so many clutch shots 2 years ago that it is pretty obvious the Heat wouldn't have won without him.
    Ray Allen now hitting clutch shots as well.
    I remember Mike Miler even somewhat carrying that team for a while 2 years ago if I'm not mistaken.

    The point is, the team is loaded and capable. That is the kind of team Lebron has to be on to win. He can't carry a team. Kobe/MJ could. Period.

    MJ's desire to win is 8.2 trillion times' James' desire to win. While Jordan is scouting the other team, James will be tweeting something he thinks is clever and not realizing he has a 2 digit IQ so no one gives a fuck about his random thoughts.

    Lebron has the mentality and thought process of an 8 year old girl. He makes it apparent with his twitter account.

    Chalmers is underrated. Miami collapsed without him running point when he was injured and he's been an efficient 2/3pt shooter and defender averaging close to 2 steals a game. There are lots of better PG's in the league but he's not a scrub by any means.

    Anyway as long as defense is part of the game Lebron is the best two way player in the NBA. I put him right up there with Garnett/Duncan during their peaks.

    LBJ is the greatest basketball player the universe has ever created and it is King James. I would describe it as "performance art" watching him play.
    Men are born for games. Nothing else... the worth or merit of a game is not inherent in the game itself but rather in the value of that which is put at hazard. Games of chance require a wager to have meaning at all. Games of sport involve the pride of victory & the humiliation of defeat; which are themselves sufficient stake... But trial of chance or worth, all games aspire to the condition of war, for here, that which is wagered swallows up game, player, all.
