I hate it when people can only revert to rings as only differentiator between top players. Rings are a part of the resume, but rings isn't the only way to determine greatness.

I think MJ was better than Russell but Russell had like 4 or 5 more championships. I think Wilt is better than Kareem but Kareem has more titles.

I think Barkley was better than Worthy, etc etc etc

So far rings n age wise.... Bron = Jordan

Just let his career freakin play out!

Bill Russell also only played the same 9 teams and for a guy who was dominant, size wise and athletic ability, shot sub 50% for his career from the field!!

DROPPIN KNOWLEDGE BOMBS!!!

And another thing I don't get... How can a fan hate/dislike/not appreciate Lebron, but be a Kobe fan? The thing that I like about Lebron is that he doesn't seem like a complete asshole despite being possibly the biggest superstar in the NBA. Kobe is an asshole. So when the magnifying glass gets put on Lebron, I want to pull for him because he's not comfortable asserting himself and alienating teammates and opponents like MJ or Kobe did. It's not natural for him, like it was for Kobe and MJ. He has all-world skill, but he seems to have an everyman's demeanor at times... Yet, somehow he always gets painted as a cocky, brash, snobbish primadonna. For those that feel that way, I'm fairly convinced they don't watch basketball or follow players AT ALL.

Remember when Kobe was about to sign with the clippers because he thought his teammates sucked and the FO wasn't helping him enough?

He's a hero for doing that and staying in LA, but LeBron is a fraud for actually going through with it (and taking less money because he wanted to win titles while still being the best player). Or something.

What are the excuses? List them.

Fact; He had poo teammates.

Fact: He carried Cleveland EVERY season even as a rookie.

FACT: He carried his team to the finals and he was a disaster against the Spurs.

FACT: Didn't make it back to the finals again and was repeatedly knocked out even though he had some great individual performances and some terrible games(mostly down the stretch)

Please enlighten me on the excuses.

Oh all those are facts huh, based on your own opinion? Get outta here.

You got homer glasses on so thick you couldn't see the real facts if they were staring you right in front of your face.

I'm not going to change your opinion, you've thrown paragraphs after paragraph at me littered with bullshit and excuses. Your bias is painfully clear. For all the talk of blind Kobe fan boys you guys are just as bad if not worse.

Didn't Kobe demand a trade a few years ago but would only wave his no trade clause if it was a team he deemed acceptable but a deal couldn't get done SI he stayed? Or maybe I am making that up but I seem to recall something like that happening.

HAHAHA I love how you keep dodging everything. You still haven't presented any stats or bball analysis to back up you statements.

 

1) I'm a homer? lol A homer to who? If recognizing that LBJ is the best player in the league is a homer then, fug, there a millions of homers out there.

 

2) If they aren't facts, then correct the statements if you can.

 

3) Lol, I have not made comment in the thread in relation to LBJ's stautus against Kobe, MJ etc. Only reason I replied to you because you made a lazy statement, that I've got tired of seeing ppl spouting.

 

4) And once again, please list these excuses you keep saying I'm making.

I am even seeing the " congrats to Lebron..he should thank Battier and Ray Allen for making this possible...." comments in various places. I just want to go on a rampage..what did you not see the last 5 quarters...Where Lebron imposed his will..made passes and was the best defender on the court right?

Steve Kerr and John Paxson made shots for Jordan right? Derek Fisher and Horry for Kobe? Horry and Bowen for Tim Duncan...pretty sure this was a team sport...where a star still has to rely on their teamates.

Guys commenting must be strictly watch Sportscenter and never played basketball...Lebron is what basketball should be..I will be excited to see the next generation of unselfish Basketball guys who strive to emulate his game.

..but...at a pep rally he said he will win 9 titles.... - Lebron haters scrambling for justification of making more shite up to throw on the wall.
