    "By far, Lebron James is the best in the league"...

    he forgot to say "...at dunking". Or... "at carrying the ball." or... "at choking in the 4th"... or "at missing crucial free throws" or... "at not developing a jumpshot after 10 years."


    You'd think Larry Bird would list "shooting" as a standard deciding who the best is. I mean, that kind of was what he was good at.




    he did however redeem himself by saying he'd pick Kobe over Lebron. But still... old age is a motherf...

    Basketball sucks. And btw, LB was just as good at passing as he was shooting. It really was his ability to his teammates in good positions to score that made him a great player. Of course both the lakers and celtics of the 80's would destroy teams today.

    29 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists a game, while shooting 55 percent. Not too shabby for a guy that has sucks at this and this and that and this.

    And LOL at when you said Wade is clearly the best player, non-debatable. Oh, I see you trollin'. ;)

    Your boy Durant is not only the best scorer, but he's quite good at hiding his flaws too.

    LeBron is good at dunking, so he dunks. Let's tell Reggie Miller to stop shooting 3's.

    LeBron is actually a good mid range shooter. But of course, DW will tell you otherwise because he dunks too much.

    The best thing LeBron did this season was stop shooting 3's. Now if only he could get a post-game...

    I'm as tough on LeBron as anyone not up his butt, but honestly aside from the lack of titles he should have if he was even half of Kobe Bryant, he might be the best guy to build around. He's everywhere, and if not for a few missed shots at key times, he'd be regarded as the best.

    And GeronimoJackson, NO ONE wants to be under Blake when he goes up.
