Ummm...duh.

They were amazing passers and rebounders, as well as scorers. LeBron is the closest thing to both.

Yea, makes sense. All around the same size...cept Lebron has silly dunking ability.

Ya man, this LeBron dude is crazy. You know LeBron is the best baller in the league when you get validation for Larry Legend saying that he plays like himself and Magic.

I agree.

I've always though Lebron's game was a lot more like Magics than it was like MJs anyways.

I've always thought Dirk was a bigger, not as great as a passer, version of Larry Bird.

Larry Legend doesn't say much but when he does it's kind of important.

Yeah, he does play a lot like them. Just like Shaq played like Wilt, and Kobe like Jordan.

Legends kissing Lebron's ***..which is ok. it's the way the NBa society works.
Magic was a better distributor and Larry was the better shooter/scorer.
but from athletics and strength Lebron is a freight train that would physically run over both Magic and Larry.

Definitely. Kobe is like Jordan, while LBJ is like Magic. LeBron can't shoot like Bird though. At least not yet, and probably not ever.

Exactly. The wise thing to do if you want to critique LeBron James is "his game". You have to just forget about all that extracurricular garbage, you can't let that manufacture your perception about his overall basketball play on the court. You must keep the two things separate.

lebrons the best. if lebron was on the lakers and kobe was on the cavs then everyone who says kobe is the best right now would be saying that lebron is the best. im not blaming u. its unconscience human nature to be a homer about these things
