    True, true...

    I'd honestly say passing is the thing he does best.

    Outside of dunking- the only 2 things he's great at.

    And a lot of people will agree that he's a better playmaker than scorer. Ok, the guy's not a great shooter, there's no refuting that, and at this point, if he were to suffer a horrendous injury and lose significant athleticism, he wouldn't still be able to score 30 a game like Kobe still can. He doesn't actually dunk, dunk, dunk like the way you put it, but I know the point you're trying to get across... defenders are always forced to give him space or else he'll just blow right by them, so he gets an advantage in his outside game.

    This is why Magic will be a better comparison than Jordan.

    LeBron dominates the way same Shaq did because they're the Brock Lesnar of the NBA, where sometimes size just wins.

    You mayhave to watch this move a couple of times before you see the brilliance it is so fast.

    His post game has always randomly been good in the playoffs though.

    He was too inconsistent last year, one game he'll look like a borderline all-star and the next game he'll look like a benchwarmer. Like most has-been's, every now and then he'll show a flash or two of his former all-nba self, but I think he still has a chance to be a good player in this league for at least a few more years. If he's willing to work, he could start for a contender in hoping to at least win a ring before retiring, and probably put up numbers similar to Paul Pierce (who's been on very limited athleticism for the last 5 years).
