LeBron James is 6'8 and weighs 250 lbs. In a versatility standpoint, I think he has the skills and the perfect size to play all 5 positions. He has amazing court vision and an undeniable ability to kick the ball out to his teammates for the easy bucket. He has an exceptional jumpshot from 3pt land and a shot-blocking ability. However, James' greatest asset is his speed and unbelievable strength to get to the rim and finish with a layup or a thunderous dunk - he is a personification of a train. Having said all this, what do you guys think?

He can legitimately play four of them but not all five. I doubt he would be able to guard Shaq, Z, Yao, or Dwight Howard, but then again, they couldn't guard him either. I am pretty sure he can hang with any power forward in the strength department and any power forward that is more than two inches taller than him is just a quick center.

Definitely four. Five in select situations.
