WOW!!! I can't believe the obsession with Lebron. Look at his game log. In half of his games in the regular season he had either ZERO fouls or ONE foul. So this is not unusual. Also has he had a difficult matchup to contend with? He is not guarding PP. Last year in 8 out of 13 playoff games he had only 0 or 1 foul. The guy doesn't foul much. He doesn't reach on D and he mainly lays off his man. This is a Petty thread imo and makes Laker fans seem so jealous of Lebron. :nah:

If he lays off his man, how does he get all-defensive honors?

Great help defender. He doesn't get challenged much because he is such a good defender. Kind of like when the opposing quarterback in football would never challenge a great Defensive corner like a Deon Sanders. He will throw against the other corner.

So, you think a guy who has good defensive teammates that allow him to basically just free-lance and get steals and weak-side blocks, deserves all-defensive honors over a player who actually plays tough man-to-man defense?

I think the fact that he is a good defender is the reason why he doesn't get challenged on the defensive end and that allows him to freelance. Deon Sanders got all defensive honors and he freelanced also in order to help out others and get interceptions. Lebron can play tough man to man when challenged.

Well that's basically what Kobe's been doing for years. He doesn't shut people down anymore. The sad thing is that he can but chooses not to.

He needs energy to use on the offensive end. He would love to like in the Olympics.

And when was the last time Lebron got fouled out? 2-3 years ago? lmao

I hope you aren't talking about Kobe. He has the best offensive team in the league. LeBron is the one who needs to conserve energy.

I haven't said that Kobe deserves all-defensive honors (anymore) either.

His awards are based upon his reputation. Once upon a time, he was the best defensive guard in the game. Now, he still has shut-down ability, he just doesn't play that way the entire game.


What has Lebron done defensively to warrant both 1) all-defensive honors, and 2) not having any fouls called against him?

I think the fact that he is a good defender is the reason why he doesn't get challenged on the defensive end and that allows him to freelance. Deon Sanders got all defensive honors and he freelanced also in order to help out others and get interceptions. Lebron can play tough man to man when challenged.



Who doesn't challenge him?

If he isn't drawing tough defensive assignment, then of course, he won't get challenged.

But, if he's drawing the likes of Wade, Bryant, etc., do you think these guys are really just going to sit back and not attack because Lebron is guarding them?

Well he lead his team in rebounds, blocks, and steals according to NBA Countdown. Too lazy to look it up myself. But LeBron is becoming a better defender. Just pay attention to his one on one defense next game.

Of course those two would challenge him but in general because Lebron is a good defender the vast majority will not challenge him. Therefore Lebron continues to be a good defender by helping out with the team defense, but make no mistake he can guard one on one with the best of them.

And he doesn't foul, to boot.

Because when a superstar improves on defense (and he has this season) he automatically is put in the all-defensive team even though he doesn't deserve to be there. IMHO, only Howard deserved to be on that list, but they're not going to put the likes of Battier or Perkins on it.

stop baiting, stop dodging the swear filter, your warning level has been raised, read the rules if you want to pretend you didn't know the sig was too big...continuing to break the rules will result in suspension
