Some people would probably say he was very arrogant just because he played the game with such ease, but he was definitely my favourite player to watch growing up. He was very fun to watch and made most players in the league look sub par at best. Too bad his teams have always been terrible.
He really Fked up when he left Toronto.....He and VC together could have made a couple title runs.....maybe won one?
This would've changed everyone's view of him now.
T-Mac was basically an inefficient (compared to Lebron), shotjacking, NO DEFENSE version of a skinny Lebron with less court vision/passing ability... which is still more than enough to make him arguably the 2nd best in the NBA... but BETTER than Lebron? No...

I would agree he wouldn't be better than LeBron... but no defense?
Dude was a damn good defender when he put his mind to it, especially help defense.
I think if he went to college for a couple of years, he could have cut down his inefficiency.
I swear half of LeBron's fans are just enamoured with his physique. It's actually pretty gay.
T-Mac and LeBron played nothing alike.
It means nothing actually.... you are kindof exaggarating...
I think T-Mac was extremly similar to Lebron, as similar as two players can ever get in this league IMO........ he played EXACTLY like a Lebron but with much less efficiency, passing somewhat and most importantly DEFENSE... he was just not exactly that type of talented... they had also similar size (he was more skinny, thats all it means, nothing more, dont exaggarate please?), position, T-Mac was also doing alot of "point-forwarding"...
The most likeable player in the league? I don't know about that. He got into a lot of fights...throwing the ball at Bobby Jackson's head and then getting into a fist fight with him, going at it with Kenyon Martin, pushing that one guys face really hard, standing up for VC a couple times, starting sh*t with Castillo(I think) in international ball, soccer kicking the ball into the stands twice...entertaining though.
I don't see how health correlates to being well-liked. Then again, I don't understand why everyone hates the guy in the first place. T-Mac was an awesome player, and to hold injuries and bad luck against him is stupid.
Lebron is on another level from everyone else. Prime T-mac would have given him a run for his money. A better scorer, not as good rebounder or passer.
Some people pointed to t-mac's lack of defense, but dude was a shutdown defender when he wanted to be. I remember a playoff series where Dirk was going off, but tmac stopped that quick when he was put on Dirk.
