Mind you, I do not like Lebron lol... And I enjoy watching him lose... I think his very immature. But I recognise how good of a player he is.

^^ That statement holds true for this season..and possibly for the next 10 years if he's still commissioner.

Lebron is far and beyond better than any player in the game and to the guy saying he only blocks guys from behind you son are watching too much highlights, watch the games his on ball defence and ability to guard almost 5 positions on the floor is outstanding. He is a constant 30-10-10 threate on the offensive end aswell.. No lebron is still the best player in the game.


The ONLY thign Durant has over James? 2 things
- Better jumpshop
-Killer instinct/not shying from big moments

THATS IT.


Lol you can take the great stats I'll stick with the guy that has the killer instinct and doesn't shy away from big moments, I mean thats whats ultimately gonna bring you multiple rings

People wanna act like they are fine with thinking that LeBron James is the only "great one" that you DON'T want with the ball in their hands at the end of games... :laughing:

I think people are fooled by loaded stats and highlight dunks by Lebron.... Cause Durant is clearly better than Lebron

So much LeBron love in this thread. Might as well rename this place LeBron Nation. :laughing:

Give me Durant who has a killer instinct and has come through late in games over LeChokevwho has great stats, but chokes in the 4th quarter.

Yea I don't get how you can believe Lebron is a choke but still take him over someone you believe is a proven killer and clutch scorer, who's at the same elite level.

Well there you go heres a great game for Lebron in what was a potential beating from the media... he responded well..


Still hate the f*** but his damn good. Well see how they go though.

I think a DURANT VS JAMES finals would be epic indeed.

This is a Laker forum. That's going too far. It's a bannable offense.

Wouldn't talent mean like skill set? Lebrons the best player statistically, efficiency wise, and dominance for a perimeter player.

Lebron is the most ATHLETIC guy, I dont know about TALENTED... Ive always said when Lebron loses that athletism and hits aroudn 31-32 his going to age REALLY REALLY bad... A guy like Durant can be more effective at 34-35, because he is a more "talented" basketball player. That I agree with...


But right now James> Durant... Durant I think is BARELY a marginal better offensive player in terms of scoring, but james is just all that more rounded player, especaily his defence and NO im not talking about his blocks from behind im actualyl talking about his defence.

Oh and in terms of WHO id pick right now? ON THIS team.. i take James he fits better with Bryant... But right now to start a team, id take the younger durant who is humble and not a child and does not shy from the big moments so in that sense id pick Durant. (also I did say Lebron I believe will age bad)

lbj is best all around, but I'd take KD over him on my team. KD has been a beast against the best teams in these playoffs, and has delivered the killer shots to all of them.

KD & Westbrook > LBJ and Wade: All four can get to the hoop, jump out of the gym, but only two of them can hit jump shots.

Nope but KD does have a consolation prize. He does have the better team.
"The way Steve is as a teammate, the way he sets the tone, the way the team kind of takes on his persona. As a coach, that's the best thing in the world. It's easy to coach. He's taking care of the chemistry. You just coach."
