    You won't be a top 50 player without the resume unless you have insane stats.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Clearly LeBron since he is the best player in the league and has been playing at or near MJ in his prime level the past two years, he's also taken a mediocre team to the Finals, and pretty good team to the conference finals.

    Howard has a much better supporting cast, and is obviously nowhere near the post player that guys like Shaq, Kareem, Wilt, Hakeem, Duncan, and Robinson were. If I thought he was going to be an all time great center, this would be tough, but I don't see that. He'll likely go down as one of the top 10-15 centers ever, but I'll go with the likely #1 SF ever over that.

    Premier perimeter players such as MJ, Bird, Magic, and Kobe are better to build around than a center the caliber of Moses Malone imo.

    Lebron James

    From what I've seen in the Finals, Dwight Howard can't lead a team.
    yes, Magic beat Cavs, but Lebron's supporting cast is nowhere near the caliber of Turkoglu, Lewis, Alston, etc.

    Josh (Los Angeles, CA): The Cavs didn?t match up well with Orlando, now all of a sudden Big Z (PER 18.03), Mo (17.25) and Delonte (14.16) aren?t a good supporting cast and Rashard (16.83), Hedo (14.82), and Pietrus (11.69) are studs?


    Chad Ford: It's the style of play. The way the Magic spread the floor was a challenge for guys like Ben Wallace and Z to guard. When Varejao got in foul trouble, they struggled to keep up.



    Lebron only had another allstar, 4x DPOY player, 3 former allstars as well on the team, as well as shooters and rebounders on the team.


    Not to mention that he was heavily favorite to win.

    The Cavs had a team with a top 4 in defensive and offensive efficiency, the team with the highest SRS rating all year long as well as the team who had the highest point differential all year long and then won it's first two series by more than 10+ points per game, but yet they weren't the favorite to beat Orlando who was missing it's star PG and whose SG was playing injured?

    Hilarious!!!

    In fact only 2 teams that have won 65+ games have not won the title and it was the 2007 Mavs and 1973 Celtics and now the 2009 Cavs.

    These other teams all won the title.
    2009 Lakers
    2008 Celtics
    2000 Lakers
    1997 Bulls
    1996 Bulls
    1992 Bulls
    1987 Lakers
    1986 Celtics
    1983 Sixers
    1972 Lakers
    1971 Bucks
    1967 Sixers


    Also it is not like Lebron did well when he was in the finals.
