    I get what your saying, but when people say LeBron isn't a good fundamental player, they're right.

    A lot of what he does is only because he's 6'9 260 and can jump 48'' off the floor. He's come a long way but he's still not amazing fundamentally. It took him 9 years to get a jump shot when that's a skill most good fundamental players already have. Even on defense, lebron's not exactly stellar in terms of the fundamentals, he cheats a lot because he has the athleticism to make up for it, and with that frame, half his work is already done on that end, its so much easier for him to defend than it is for a Avery Bradley or Kobe Bryant who are elite defenders and fundamentally sound players.

    LeBron is the shaq of this decade. He's just bigger and stronger than anyone so he's going to dominate.

    If Kobe were guarded the way teams guard LeBron, you'd see Kobe scoring 60 points a night. He's too good fundamentally to give him that much space and not see him score 80% of the time.

    LeBron's handling and dribbling are good, his footwork is atrocious, his jump shot is still shaky, he can make the open ones but he drops off with someone in his face or kawhi leonard anywhere in the building.

    His jumper is the weakest of any NBA legend shooting guard ever.


    EVER.

    He's not a shooting guard though.

    Yeah he is.

    He's not a PF. He's a guard. Through and through.

    Someone that's 6'8" and 260 lbs ain't a guard lol.

    He's a giant azz SF (if you had to give him an official position) with PG skills.

    Damn... Nets traded for Garnett, Pierce, and Terry?

    Wow... better at least get the 2 seed in the East. Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry, and whoever else they have.

    Boston tanking for Andrew Wiggins. Wouldn't be surprised if they're shopping Rondo.

    He's a power forward and I'm done talking basketball with you cause you obviously didn't know that was a position...

    They're building around Rondo.

    Yeah, obviously since I'm the one that mentioned said position- I didn't know it was a position.

    He's a 6'8 guard.

    Hell, he barely has a post game and that just developed this season. Don't try telling me he's a forward that handles the ball 90% of the time.
