Default Re: Magic and Skip say Jordan would beat Lebron 10 out of 10 one v one

Lebron can guard 1-3 and some 4's. He cannot guard Gasol with regularity...at least not when Gasol played like he had balls.


Shane Battier was the Heat's PF early in the season. Lebron was not playing PF. He was playing his position and making up for the rebounding issues. But he was not playing PF, nor was he guarding the other PF. Shane Battier is a 3 who can play some 2 and not a PF. He was literally getting abused early in the season and Lebron was playing the 3. That's not to say Lebron was selfish or that he should have guarded the opposing 4's. But he didn't, despite him being much better suited to guarding 4's than Battier is. Lebron has the body for anyone. He wasn't guarding 4's because it's not his game. He can tho, if he's asked too. But it's exaggerated when people say he does it game to game.

Lebron, WADE AND BOSH TO TAKE ATTENTION AWAY FROM HIM. HENCE, HE'S A LITTLE BITCH WITH 2 OTHER STARS HAVING HIS BACK.



so Rose was the only guy that could create his own shot, yet you fail to mention LeBron was the only guy who could create his own shot in the 09 ECF.

Yeah I heard that part but also heard comments of saying only 4 players would be successful in yesterdays NBA. He also said Lebron would NOT be as Dominant and almost Laughed at notion of Lebron being compared to Oscar Robertson. MJ is still the GOAT however I think all the Lebron talk and Hype has made him a bit uneasy thus needing to knock him down a peg or two to make himself look and feel better. I grew up watching MJ and that NBA and I know Lebron would be just as good than that he is now.

Fair enough, but the way you come at people, make it seem like you think LBJ would dominate Kareem/MJ/Hakeem/Shaq/Wilt all in one night.

Just tone it down a bit with the over bearing LBJ homerism.

Well, he did hurt his ankle during the Pacers series that slowed him down. Didn't LBJ complain about his elbow during the Celtics series he lost? If LBJ can use that as an excuse, I see no reason why Rose shouldn't also (he hasn't).

I will absolutly say growing pains, we all here cut LBJ some slack for his performance against the Spurs in 07, he was a young guy first time that deep in the playoffs vs a veteran team. Or would you perfer us to say LBJ has laid in egg twice in the Finals and come up big once?

Most people here cut LBJ some slack for 07, (youth, inexperience, overmatched) even though he stunk.

Whats it matter if it was against the Magic? They had the next best 3 players after Lebron in the series. Finally you admit that Cleveland team had no shot creators

Depends on a few things:

- Game rules. Make it, take it? This is the kind of game that could come down to who misses first

- Can Lebron handle Jordan's offensive versatility? Is Jordan strong enough to prevent Lebron from backing him down and bulldozing him to the rim?

- Who's 'hot' at that given moment. Lebron is literally impossible to guard if his jumpshot is on. Jordan has more offensive weapons that can be employed in a one on one scenario.

I'd take MJ, but 10 out f 10 is insanity. 6/10, max 7/10, is the absolute best case scenario.

Dwight, who wasn;t guarding Lebron 1 on 1. Rashard Lewis? Hedo? Nelson?



Rashard Lewis is such a nightmare defender!!!

Also, their team defense was only good, because of the rim protection. Lebron didn't have resistance leading up the rim, only at the rim. In which he got a shit ton of foul calls.

I remember Dwight being in foul trouble early as hell in those games.

Silk, thanks for making our point for us, lol.
You try putting Rose down so much it's not funny ...You have Rose on one side with nobody else with him that can create their own shot. On the Heat you have LBJ and Wade, plus an All Star PF. We were outgunned and a 22/23 year old wasn't going to beat by himself a Heat team with their best players in their prime.

It was still a close series even though it was 4-1 because 3 of your wins came down to the last minutes of the game.

So "punking" him is trash talking and hitting a shot? A scorer scores and talks some trash and that's punking him? What was Lebron supposed to do? Punch him or something? As far as him hitting a shot, I don't know if you never seen it before, but players hit shots all the time.
