    Shawn Kemp had little other than explosiveness.

    Lebron is huge, has a good midrange game, and is a very good passer. He'll put up 18/6/6 at age 40 if he wants...

    I get that a lot of people hate Lebron and do everything they can to pick apart his game, but if you look at what he is instead of what he isn't, you'll see a damn amazing player.

    I aint got a dog in the hunt, but the whole ego trip inspired event that was 'the decision' was enough for me too throw LJ from the I dont care category into the I hope he fails category

    If it makes you feel any better I feel the same way about Farve now

    Lebron does have a solid mid-range game. It's far from the level of somebody like Kobe but it gets the job done.

    Don't degrade his game because you don't like him.

    Last season, he shot 45% from mid-range (and was something like 55% in the 2nd half of the season). As a point of reference, Durant and Kobe were both 42% and Joe Johnson was 38%.

    This season, Lebron is at 42%, Kobe 44%, and Durant 50%. Joe Johnson is at 40%. Check out the stats cube on nba.com.

    don't even try to compare LeBron's midrange game to Kobe's (arguably the best midrange player of all time)...

    Defenses will give lebron the 15 footer a lot of the time to avoid the much higher percentage dunk. Kobe rarely shoots a jumper without a hand in his face, so those stats don't really mean much to me.
