I was very critical of all the hype when Lebron entered the league, I thought he'll be a good player but not a great player. When he came into the league, he was about the size of Ron Artest but now, he's literally bigger than Shaq. He has surpassed my expectation, I like wade the most but lebron is a beast. This is a guy that people are already calling the heir apparent, but greater than the legend, he is the King.....even Laker fans wouldn't argue that he is the best player in the NBA; and that my friends, is a tall order.

What are your thoughts on Lebron, is he what you thought he was, or did he simply surpass your expectation?

He's nearly as good as Chris Quinn.

First off, Kobe's still the best player in the NBA...and then no, expectation were for him to come into the league and win multiple titles. He hasn't done that yet. Infact he got swept in his only performance. This is Lebron's 7th season...MJ won it in his 6th. Kobe in his 5th, Wade in his 3rd. Lebron's had an excellent career thus far, but until he wins that ring, he hasn't surpassed all the hype, most of it, yes.

A lot of people told me he was going to have a couple championships under his belt by the age of 24 and that hasn't happened. In terms of that, he hasn't surpassed those expectations. Still, he is a phenomenal player.

If Lebron changes his first name to Mike, he has surpassed my expectations. But he hasn't so he's exactly who I thought he was.
