LeBron is a great player, I'm not taking anything away from him, but he is vastly misunderstood.

Without his 6'9, 250 frame, he wouldn't be [expletive]. If he was Kobe's size, he would be an AVERAGE player. He's to the small forward what Bill and Wilt were in their time..just BIGGER than everybody.

It helps his whole game cause he can jump over anybody, which pretty much gives him a wide-open jumpshot cause he jumps so high that nobody can get a hand in his face, he gets a lot of assists cause he's strong enough to whip the ball to his teammate and he has enough hangtime to look around and see who's open while he's driving. Rebounding, same thing with the hops. Defense, pure strength and athleticism.

He is MISUNDERSTOOD. On terms of pure skill, Kobe & MJ are the GOAT. MJ is above him in my book, strictly for his dominating defense. But LeBron? Average NBA player skill. Again, he's sick, and a fun player to watch, but his skill isn't there. Imagine if he was 'Melo's size, with 'Melo's physical limits? Would he have gotten 50, 11, and 10 in MSG?

Imagine if Kobe was 4 feet tall, he would suck.

This is a dumb game to play.

If he can be this good with average skill, holy [expletive] NBA watch out.

Why wouldn't I? It's nothing to argue over, Kobe's size helps him a lot too. If AI was bigger, he wouldn't be as quick or as stealthy. If Shaq was smaller, he wouldn't be one of the most dominant forces ever. Can't really debate any of this, and can't take away from how good he is just because he's so damn gifted physically. And it's not like he's just this fit, he's put a lot of work into it.

LeBron doesn't have average NBA player skill; the dude's a beast.
And Melo's wet all the time.

i understand what you're saying

unless he becomes as complete a player as kobe, lebron is not gonna age well. when he loses his quicks, hops, basically his ability to drive it in, he'll have nothing to work with. he's still young so he's gotta start working on making his shot more consistent rather than have to rely on bashing it on everybody all day.


but as for now, while he still has his youth, lebron is a beast and there's no way around it.

Shaquille O'Neal's skillset is way below average yet he has one more ring than Kobe and 3 more finales MVP's. Your point?

This is ATHLETICS. Being a superior athlete is part of the sport.

If you had a bigger [expletive], you could be a pornstar. Your point?

And that's his fault? Shouldn't you hate the people hyping him up instead of LeBron himself? He just plays the game and people ride him. That's not his fault.

And at the end of the day his size can't be the sole reason he's arguably the best in the game. Size means nothing without skill.

Media says that he's better than MJ, better than Kobe & he is being compared to WILT CHAMBERLAIN.

that's why. If i read articles about Kobe/Lakers on nba.com, there isn't any of them where they're not mention Lebron's greatness. I'm just sick of that.

I mean, i used to love watching him play & everything and I gotta admit that he's an outstanding perfomer, but i'm just sick of all the hype & attention he gets all the time. People are pretty much saying that he is the g.o.a.t. ( ROY, 2 time all-star mvp, 2 time nba first team, 2 time nba second team 1 time scoring champion) <-- that's all he got.
