Lakers at Cavs at 3:30 on ABC.



Lebron and Kobe will be wanting to one up each other, should be entertaining.

King James drops the double nickel tonight in Milwaukee. His stat line for the evening is 55 points (including a career record 8 three pointers), 9 assists, and 5 rebounds. Cleveland wins 111-103. Can you say MVP?

Pretty good for someone WITHOUT a perimeter game huh?

Give me a break, I'd take Labron over Kobe. He's not as selfish, he passes the ball and does everything. 77% FT's are still pretty good, better than a lot of NBA plays, but the rebounds/assists/steals are huge. As far as saying he can't shoot, you are nuts, I've seen Lebron drill 3's, far 2's, all game long. The guy is the most COMPLETE player in the league.

He ain't Jordan yet, he never will be, but in the end you'll see Jordan BESIDE Lebron as the best players ever.

Here's how King James measures up against some of the all-time great forwards at age 24 in the NBA.

[b]PPG    FG%    FT%   3PT%   RPG   AST    TO   STL   BLK[/b]    
[b]LeBron James[/b]      28.9   49.3   77.0   31.7   7.4   7.1   3.2   1.8   1.2
[b]Karl Malone[/b]       27.7   52.0   70.0   --.-  12.0   2.4   4.0   1.4   0.6
[b]Julius Erving[/b]     27.9   50.6   79.9   33.3  10.9   5.5   3.6   2.2   1.9
[b]Charles Barkley[/b]   28.3   58.7   75.1   28.0  11.9   3.2   3.8   1.3   1.3
[b]Larry Bird[/b]        21.2   47.8   86.3   27.0  10.9   5.5   3.5   2.0   0.8
[b]Dominique Wilkins[/b] 21.6   47.9   77.0   --.-   7.2   1.6   2.7   1.4   1.1
[b]Scottie Pippen[/b]    16.5   48.9   67.5   25.0   6.7   5.4   3.4   2.6   1.2

The only player who I'd say is clearly better than LeBron at age 24 would be Dr.J. King James matches up very well or better than all the other forwards on this list at that age. None of these guys were in their primes then and put up better seasons afterwards. Its scary to think how good this guy is gonna be in his.

I've always said that Lebron can shoot the three, he just doesn't have a great game inbetween the three point line and the paint. His shot chart last night will prove that. Awesome game though for sure, I'm not knocking him here, just don't think he's as perfect as this poster thinks.

Also, how is Kobe selfish?

Great players are great players, you can't really take that away from either one of them.

I love how everyone keeps bringing up Shaq's rings when they talk about Kobe.

Because Kobe has won a ring since Shaq left. And Shaq didn't win one in Miami.

You guys must have long arms to be giving Bean such a long reach around.

Kobe won a ring without Shaq? I don't knock Kobe for that anyway, big deal, not his fault his team was good, like MJ without Pippen.

Kobe takes like a billion shots. Article in ESPN says that during Kobe's 61 point game he was DEMANDING the ball, and when someone took a shot, Kobe got upset about it. That's not very "team" to me. He's still great tho.

Really? Shaq's rings? Like they would have won without Kobe. Like Shaq would have won in Miami without Wade. Bottom line is that you need more than one player to win a championship. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing Kobe's second MVP trophy and 4th NBA Championship trophy come season's end.

What's pertinent to this discussion is Lebron has won ZERO rings. And that won't change this year either.

I think the Lakers would have beat Detroit in the finals if they hadn't had Kobe.

And then he went and won it with someone else. Something Kobe has yet to do. I don't think he will.

Kobe hasn't won with anyone else because he hasn't had anyone else. He finally does this year, so there are no excuses if the Lakers don't win.
