I said surround with talent, not 1 teammate out of 14.
I hate the Kentucky Wildcats, and I hate the Celtics- but I actually like Rondo. He's a top 5 pg. Probably due to the talent around him, but I like the way he plays.
That steal and behind the back move last night was dope. Then the finish was nice at the other end.
King James is the most fun player to watch since Jordan IMO.
I could name plenty others more fun to watch, but to each his own. Chris Paul, Kobe (scores in much more impressive ways), Dwayne Wade, and even Kevin Durant.
Kevin Durant is one of the most gifted scorers i've ever seen. He just makes it look effortless. I wish he didn't have to play on a hellhole of a team like OKC, because everyone needs to see him play.
Yeah, Rondo is up there. I don't know about top 5..
2. Deron Williams
3. Steve Nash
4. Devin Harris
5. Tony Parker
6. Jameer Nelson
7. Rondo/Baron Davis
Probably 7th or 8th IMO..
I don't think his stats are because of the talent around him though. I think the talent around him developed him into a top 10 PG, and if you surround any mediocre player with that kind of talent, hes going to develop into a top tier player.
I'd put him right up there with Tony Parker. That's who he reminds me of...just less hatable.
Lebron is a better rebounder, has more steals, more blocks, and a higher FG%. But Kobe is better because he is a better jump shooter?
I'm not a Kobe hater or a Lebron lover but Kobe is not the best player in the league right now. If I had to choose it would be between Wade and Lebron, as much as I hate Wade. And I do agree with whoever said Durant is a gifted scorer, I swear he can score in any way possible at any given moment.
Lebron drops 51 on the Kings!
I'm going to start posting all his shot-charts until he's exposed and everyone sees him as he is. A guy that feeds off dunks and pure athleticism. Which is ok- but he's not as good as guys like Kobe and Wade.
Hold up a second...the point of this thread is to declare that Lebron is overrated? If that's the case, you're officially an idiot. Hit me with the 2 point penalty TitanJeff, but that's just the fact of the matter and it simply can't go unsaid
