Yes I remember. I didn't say anything about Rose's game. I was just wondering what the OP meant. I do hope Rose develops more of a perimeter game so he doesn't have a similar career to Wade in terms of injuries. I mean he can be aggressive in games, but after a while it takes a toll on the body and it ages faster than others because of that mileage.

Nahhh.

Lebron came into this league with passing as his best gift, and he had top 10 vision the day he stepped foot on Sacramento's court for his first regular season game.

And actually, there are pretty well regarded analysts who said he had top 5 NBA vision when he was still a high school senior (not top 5 potential...top 5 as in he already had top 5 vision).

His passing didn't immediately translate , he turned the ball over like it was his job. He was called a ballhog...trust.... I was there.

Watching more than a game and the sacramento game on youtube don't exactly tell the story

By saying that, you're implying James didn't pass enough. But it can't go both ways because then some say he passed too much at times.

Bitch made to the core.

Pampered ass life-style.

His mommy dressed his ass up in matching gear and gave him bubble baths daily.

No wonder he didn't have the mental fortitude to start playing when he was cleared.

Clear case of bitch-madeitis. The moment these guys are out of their comfort zone, they crumble. They delude themselves with excuses for whey they can't do something because things aren't perfect like they're used to. So they wait for things to be perfect and for them to be completely comfortable.

How do you idiots defend this guy?

Because you guys are bitch made losers as well. ****ing stumpies

Allow me to elaborate. When lebron was with the cavs, everyone wanted to see him win besides Kobe stans. He didn't and went to Miami and no one wanted to see him win outside of his own fans. Now d rose is in the same boat lebron was in when he was with the cavs. except rose will win a championship for the bulls and everyone will be happy to see it happen for him. D rose will pick up and continue in the path lebron should have taken. Rose will receive all the credit and accolades that lebron would have received if he stayed and won with the cavs.

Default Re: Derrick Rose is the player Lebron couldnt be.

There is no question to me that Rose will be remembered as the better more loyal player than Lebron. Lebron is 6'8 and a big 6'8 but still has no post game. With Rose, I think we only saw a fraction of his potential in the MVP season. He did all that without a jumpshot and teammates who couldn't score on an empty basket. He was literally being guarded by 3 people often. Rose has been working on his shooting for a year and has apparently had his athleticism improved. Rose with a jumpshot is simply unguardable. This is going to be a very special player that only comes once in a generation

Oh I see. Thanks for explaining. It's very rare for somebody to grow up a fan of that team in that city and then win a championship for that team as a star. It's really cool actually.

Yep, D-Rose is such a diehard Bulls fan. He cares so much that he sat on the bench these past playoffs and vigorously cheered on his team while they played their arses off. That's a real fan.

LeBron played for Cleveland for 7 years. How many has Rose played for Chicago?

You're joking right ?

He chased triple doubles for personal glory. Ricky Davis



This isn't even a knock on Lebron....dude was like 17 years old in the NBA. I'm just saying his game was way different and the things he is known for now he was basically the polar opposite back then. He shot a shit load of 3's too.

Buy this book:

http://www.amazon.com/King-James-Bel...on+james+story

It covers every high school season and his first couple NBA seasons...

Lebron took Cleveland to the NBA Finals.

Bulls haven't been to the NBA Finals since Jordan. Frankly, D-Rose is in the same category as Jalen Rose, Ben Gordon, and other scrubs who couldn't lead Chicago to the big one.
