Give me a break about the misspell...
Read the article again - the dude is comparing Dwight to LeBron - hence my response.
You basically agreed with me. You listed reasons why Dwight is a better post player than LeBron. I agree. But I won't give Dwight such an advantage as being the best defensive player. LeBron put down some D this year. Dwight swats shots and protects the rim like no other and thus he's voted defensive POY.
Since you want to compare, Ok - you start your team with Duncan (he's a great big), I'll start mine with LeBron.
Sorry man - I do agree with the guy far above who said that LeBron, Kobe and Wade are the 3 with Dwight a bit behind.
I also agree that defense and rebounds win titles. You cetainly can't be suggesting that the Cavs didn't rebound and play D this season?? The play team D while the Magic don't have to so much with Howard roaming the middle.
This writer and alot of these Magic fans act like Orlando has taken Cleveland apart. Hell no - I've watched the games as an NBA fan. Game 3 was the only one that wasn't in doubt in the last few seconds. If you could make a team in the lab to beat that Cleveland team that won 66 games you would construct the Orlando Magic. Horrible match-up for the Cavs. For the last few years the Cavs have needed an athletic big who can play D above the rim and score a little. This series also shows they need a longer defensive athlete on the perimeter as well.
Any Questions..........

Can't agree more Mr Bianchi. You are on point. I'm a Laker fan and I have been seriously rooting for the Magic because of the blatant disrespect the NBA, media, and sportscasters have shown them and their Superstar. First of all, Dwight is the most dominant player in the game, and while Lebron is getting all the hype, Dwight has been the better leader, player, and teamate this post season. Lebron basically left his teamates out to dry when calling them out on National TV. This is the 2nd time he has done that ish and no one seems to bother. Kobe Bryant was the traitor last season when he requested a trade; Lebron has basically been saying (albeit not blatantly); If the refs can't win me this thing, NY please come get me. Lebron as a player is shadier than Kobe, and something in me tells me he may never win a championship with that attitude. He always unravels, and we see his true colors when his team does not win. What a sad, sad, story. The Magic better come strong game 6 cos u know Stern and his cohorts will have their hands all over that game.

dxfactor, every single statement you made is literally the biggest load of crap I have ever read in my entire life. Your conspiracy theories on this basically being rigged don't even warrant a rational response, and people like you who think that is the state of the NBA, should not even be a fan of the NBA then. Go watch your local high school basketball games and rum up non-sensical theories about those.
