surely you have that image implanted in your mind when he hit the buzzer beater that didnt count but should have and he cracked it. He dominated that series

Lebron James. He still have to improve his shooting game, so good defensive team won't limit his only inside game.

If you don't remember it, yet it happened, and your position is that it didn't happen or you don't remember, your memory is poor.

The phuck you have idiot. You just said Baron Davis only had one good playoff series. If you had watched basketball since the Starks, Ewings days you would have remembered Baron owning TMac in the Charlotte-Orlando series. Now pipe down with the veteran fan talk, ain't no one buying what you got to sell.

38% playing the whole game and shooting alot of tough shots with a bad back.
Sometimes stats dont tell the story

TMac - Looks good going nowhere
KG - There is no I in 'Team'. Chris Paul should be the MVP favourite

A side note on Kobe - His scoring ability recieves due credit, I, too, believe he is an underrated defender, but his clutch scoring and ability to carry a team are GREATLY overrated. I'm not a hater, I just can't stand it when people believe he is absolutly flawless and put him on a pedistal, as if he is the second coming of Christ.

I was gonna say Tmac... but he was a great player, now his injuries limit him alot. So maybe some fans who lask understanding overrate him.

I think the Magic overrated Rashard Lewis. :)

My memory is poor from not remembering one series? Great logic.

Just because I watch basketball for 14-15 years doesn't mean I would remember every single moment. btw I don't care who believes me. It is not like watching basketball for 14-15 years is an accomplishment.

you guys have got to just go back and think about the season prior to 04, he got to the eastern semis twice and the playoffs the rest of the time, remember the series he had against a.i. going back and forth back and forth, taking it i think to six games, and that was the finals sixers squad, dont forget that one, demolishing mcgrady, putting a hurt on dwade in the first round even though he was injured for two of the 7 games, its a classic mistake by fans not to think before speaking just using your bias instead of your mind, just go back and youtube it, there's lots of classics out there, and then you wonder why dwade an excellent defender says that bd is the hardest person to guard, overrated my ass, the man didn't even get rewarded for what he did last playoffs, which is murder an mvp!!!! No allstar game in 4 years and he is overrated allright? I just wasted my time trying to explain it to these kids (old heads know what i'm talkin about)

'Limit'? Which teams, exactly, have 'limited' LeBron this year? The guy is averaging 31/8/7/2/1 on 48% shooting, playing excellent defense and his team is 12 games over .500 in games that he plays in.

I would hate to see his numbers/contribution if he wasn't 'limited'... We're talking 50/15/12/4/3 on 60% shooting and a 70 win team.

I agree with everything except his ability to carry a team. I think that is neither overrated or underrated. But his clutch scoring is greatly overrated. I've heard people say they would have rather have Kobe then Jordan in his prime take the gamewinning shot. Its ridiculous. I read somewhere that Jordan has over 30 game-winners and converted on over 50% of game-winning shot attempts. Kobe on the other hand has converted on about 20%.
