    What makes Lebron the best if he doesn't have the best stats nor is the champion? Either you have to have one or the other to be the best he has neither at this point.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    curry was the best player in the NBA the last 2 years. people still say LeBron probably because of consistency, defense and his longevity is now coming into the discussion too. but its pretty clear curry has been the man this year and last year, his offense dominates and trumps brons lead in defense.

    I got a few questions.

    1. Is this only based off one series (or really the last couple of games?). I'm confused because the OP didn't make it sound like that.

    2. Are you saying that Curry is a better defender than Lebron? Forreal?

    3. Do you have such a rudimentary understanding of basketball that you base someones defensive ability off of how many points someone scored in a game? Especially in the today's day of hybrid defenses?

    I could venture a guess just based off of the 2 posts I've seen you hate Lebron. Plus your obviously a Bulls fan so that increases those odds. Rational conversations are usually not to be had in situations like this. So I shouldn't probably feed the flames... But yeah...

    It goes

    Curry
    Westbrook
    Durant
    Leonard/James

    James is a better defender but far from elite. Westbrook who somehow was labeled a bad defender on here is playing at a higher level on defense then James. Westbook is doing everything better then James right now. Scoring, assist and defending. Had the Spurs turning the ball over and now GS. The 2 best offenses. Also unlike James he's actually took games over "when he wanted to".

    haha no ones going to agree with you with westbrook over LeBron but you make some fair arguments. If drafting today ID take westbrook over LeBron but I hate LeBron so yea. I feel as though westbrook could carry a team just like LeBron does though.

    Curry was the better regular season player for sure. However, I am not so sure that knee is healed up. He doesn't look as explosive currently. At this exact moment, LeBron is the better player. But I am not going to just throw away 19 months of Curry being the superior player. So a tie??

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    some of the hypothetical if-you-swap-so-and-so-with-so-and-so-would-such-and-such-team-be-better might be up for debate still. team impact can be up for debate. all that non-empirical stuff.


    Curry. I've said Curry for the last 10 months and think he's been underrated by the general public in all 10 of those months. People acted like I was crazy for saying Curry was still underrated yet here we are a back to back MVP and current champion and he only has 37.5% of the poll for best player. It's ridiculous.
