Lebron is slow and will slow down too much once he nears 30. This is common with larger players who are small forwards or guards. He will be mediocre in five years.

Excuse me? Kobe is still the best in the league, and I think some people overrate LeBron, but mediocre? No way.

The refs favor him. His signature move is a travel. The "Crab Dribble". When he hesitates on a shot, they call a foul even if he isn't touched.

...Fail, Lebron is one of the fastest players in the NBA, yes he is favored but not nearly as much as Kobe. The refs are afraid to eject Bryant from a game, he once had a technical foul, kicked the ball into the crowd. He was given a T but after the refs 'discussed' it he was no longer ejected. Bryant is a fake pussy who has the same amount of MVP awards as James, but has been in the NBA for 7 more seaons... Lebron is likely to win at least 5 more in his career than Kobe will ever have.

Kenny is right, not every forum is about you and what you think.

Aren't you tired of EVERYBODY telling you this?

Every time you talk about LeBron you show us that you do not know ANYTHING about him.

Why aren't you on the Knicks forums?

REREAD the first sentence!

Tiff, come on now.

All great players are in one way or another ball hogs.

They are supposed to be.

LBJ can score 30 some points a game, at a very good FG%.
He draws double teams that open up the game for lesser players.

His job (much like D Wades job) is to have the O run thru him.

That isnt being a ball hog, its how the nba works.

Look at the 80's lakers.
They had tons of talent, but in the half court set they almost always fed the ball to Kareem.

Kareem either got double teamed and kicked it out, or shot his hook.

Kareem wasnt a ball hog, that was just the best half court play the lakers had.(even with all that talent.)

As for LBJ being Ugly.... Well thats fine, I wont argue that one.

LBJ being Cocky...
Most NBA players are cocky...

In order to be that good at something you have to believe in yourself.

Sometimes a great belief in yourself comes across as being cocky.

As for Overrated... That is way to subjective to even talk about.

People rate him high, and people rate him not very high. As you see with this very thread.

But its hard to overrate a guy that is the only player in the league last year to avg. over 28 pts. 7 boards, and 7 assts.

And again shoot a high FG% in getting those pts.

Look, I respect the heck out of D Wades game, as I know you do.

But come on. You really cant believe LBJ is as bad as you post.

Let me put it this way.
I bet if you asked D Wade to rate LBJs game....

He would have him top 1, 2 or 3 in the game.

Why even bother reply to a guy that says LBJ is slow?

I mean, come on.

Thats like saying MJ couldnt handle playoff pressure.

Statements like that need to be ignored.

HAHAHA Cav's motto is "All for one and one for all". Thanks for the reminder, I wanted to bring it up.

When you post on here, you are "All for me and me for me".

You can call me whatever the hell you want, but you come on these Cavs forums just asking for trouble, and that's exactly how you're going to get treated. You have no right to call anybody selfish and cocky, because that's the same thing most have been saying about you.

Your last sentence "no one dont like to hear mines" speaks volumes about you. Think about it.
