    Lebron wont win a single ring unless someone wins it for him. Look at his playoffs performances. He had one good game and shouldn't have even played in the rest of them.

    And whether you think he's great or not, he's still overrated. He'll never live up to the hype ESPN created for him. It wouldn't even be fair to expect him to be.

    And I don't hate him, I just see him as a cherry picker. He gets easy buckets and pads his stats by cherry picking usually.
    And saying he has no supporting cast isn't fair either- His supporting cast literally CARRIED him last year in the playoffs, not the other way around.

    I agree Lebron brought me back to watching Basketball since the Bulls era.

    The NBA has done a GREAT job of marketing him. We all knew his name when he was in HS and they were showing his games on ESPN before he entered. I just don't think he's that much better than the next good kid coming in...other than his freakish athleticism.
    OJ Mayo will probably surpass him in the long run.

    Lakers lost to the 76ers. Kobe had 1 shot in the 4th Q and allowed a 3 pointer by the sixers to win the game.

    He 'allowed' it? Not much else he could do there other than foul AI.
