[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]His recent statements prove that he is a guy that does not and never has gotten it.[/background][/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]He actually said that he will win 7+ championships with the Heat[/background][/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]He has been in the league for 10 years and only has 1 championship so far. He left Cleveland and calls fans "spoiled" for expecting him to play well.[/background][/font][/color][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)] He also said that he feels sorry for himself.[/background]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]He rode Wade's and Bosh's coattails to one title, and personally lost them a chance to win in 2010-2011, pouted through a playoff game by refusing to shoot the ball in the 4th qtr of every game.[/background][/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]You can put all the all-stars you want around LeBron James (and you have to have all-stars around him to make up for his play *see 2010-2011) but at the end of the day it doesn't matter. They won't touch the ball a lot until the 4th qtr when LeBron starts playing hot potato.[/background][/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]Ball movement ends when the ball gets to LeBron (having the 5th highest career usage rate in the history of the NBA). [s]That is why the Lakers are second in scoring but 19th in assists[/s] (EDIT: nvm, they didn't have Steve Nash all year). [s]Despite having one of the best passers in NBA history on their team[/s] (see previous edit). It makes no sense to have 3 current or former all-stars on your team, and yet one player is shooting the ball around 30 times a game (see Cleveland in 2009-2010).[/background][/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]LeBron is still one of the best players in the NBA, and he is one of the top 20 players of all-time at worst, so to call him overrated is a little far fetched.[/background][/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(242, 242, 242)]But in a historical context I just don't see him as a top ten player all-time. I see a guy that is about one thing and one thing only, LeBron James. To, at times, the detriment of his teams.[/background][/font][/color]
