Default Re: Hate to say it ... Lebron is overrated

Oh my. I would counter your argument richie but its to much work because nothing is gonna change. You will still continue to say Wade is better and I will say LeBron is better.

No one changes there opinions and it is a waste of time to argue about things that can not be proven.

10 years from now we see how overated LBJ is when he will be in the same light as some of the greatest players ever to play and has won like 3 championships.

nice post...

I can see your angle and understand why you would have Wade over Lebron

you did however, fail to mention the refs

and once again you make Shaq presence seem as though it didn't matter...

when it is all said and done between us we both agree that lebron is the more valuble player...and that is more of my point...I would rather have a bigger, taller, younger star than an injury prone star that has slightly (very slightly) better numbers...

I applaud you for finally realizing it.

I did talk about how the refs affected the Finals.

I never said she wasn't useful AT ALL, I just said he wasn't as useful as you're making him out to be.

I said simply because of the fact that Lebron gets injured less. Again, skill and valubility are two different things. Everybody knows Steve Nash is better than Dwight Howard. But when you're starting a franchise, you obviously pick Howard, because he's young and has a hughe upside, while Nash is 34 and on the very edge of his prime.

Yes, Lebron is definitely overrated. He somehow found a way to put up 30/7/7 and people make infinite comparisons to alltime greats. 30/7/7 is great and everything, but stats like this do not make you an instant legend as many people are calling him. If he single-handedly took over the Spurs series and put up 40/10/10 every game...ok, people could begin to talk. However, as everyone knows, he blundered miserably his first go-round. That isn't to say he won't go insane in the playoffs someday, but right now, legend + lebron = cannot be in the same sentence/paragraph/book.

No one (I hope) called him a legend. Who the **** said that?

How can any person, on the face of this planet, single-handedly take the Spurs? Tell me. A person playing right now. Spit it out. It's the Spurs, the best team playing in the world right now, possibly. And asking a 22 year old to go insane and put up those numbers proposd? 40/10/10 is a bit of darn stretch. Not to mention, on Bowen? Pff.
