Lebron this season: Most entertaining edition yet?
 
Enjoy this 14-minute compilation of Lebron's finest offerings over the past 20 or so games. The volume of sensational plays he's provided in such a short time span is just incredible.

We can debate whether or not Lebron is past his ''prime-peak'', but I think many level-headed posters on here will agree: this is the most entertaining edition of Lebron we have ever seen. He may not be as athletic as he once was, but his added finesse & coordination sometimes makes it seem as such. Feels to me like he's more ''watchable'' than ever before. (which is saying something given his play over 10 seasons)

And has there been a more VERSATILE player in NBA history? So many styles all rolled into one. So many moves.

His most exciting season was the 2009-2010 season imo

Cavs LeBron was more exciting than Miami LeBron.

I can say that Bron has had some very entertaining plays this year, but most exciting version of Bron????? I cant go that far, his highlights thru his whole career will be the most repetitive EVER for a perimeter player (not hating, he is just not as versatile as dudes like Kobe and Wade have been as far as excitement). You can count on your hands his exciting dribble moves, all his dunks are either the cockback or the reverse, his flashy passes don't happen enough, ect. I do think he is underrated with his layups though, not quite on prime Wade level with them but still has some ill shit.

He lost some weight in the off season. Lebron is still coasting, but he had some nice plays and dunks this year.

He is coasting hard, why not though the Heat are crazy stacked..


My favourite play so far would be:

Well, he was new, more athletic, more 'raw' hence unpredictable. I can see how one would favor Cleveland Lebron.

Most exciting he's been in Miami though, for sure.

Also, 20 game sample...

I don't know how you guys see it, but I'm really entertained by the smarts and ball IQ he displayed in those highlights.

For me it was the post moves & pick and rolls with Bosh, but generally speaking I find it kind of soothing watching someone make bball look so easy. It's interesting to see how many players get spooked by him throughout the highlights - there is tendency for defenders to hesitate & ultimately desist when he goes strong at them. I find it mightily entertaining, but it's true that it doesn't result in very many ''how did he make that shot!?'' opportunities.

I just feel he's that one player in the league who fairly consistently makes opponents look like euro league squads.
