What's left to be said about LeBron James that hasn't been said? The past few days, I've been posting my thoughts and reactions @whudat but I'll summarize: King James gave up his crown. Last night's one hour special confirmed that LeBron James is not made of the same competitive stuff that fueled Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and certainly not, Kobe Bryant. It ended that debate. Who is currently the best NBA player in basketball? It's Kobe Bryant. It's also his crown; Lebron needs to to ship that Fed Ex, asap.
The Evolutionary Process
There is a reason why only a few franchises have consistently won championships; it's hard work. To win a the highest levels, the focus and intensity it takes for a player to lead his team to that fantasized destination, is a long hard slog. Yes, LeBron James gave seven years of his basketball life to the Cavaliers to no avail. But Michael Jordan, his supposed idol, had the same kind of dissapointments. While Jordan was busy racking up MVPs and scoring titles, for three consecutive years, during the playoffs, the Chicago Bulls were kicked and shoved around by the Detroit Pistons. It wasn't until their core players got better, that the team figured out how to beat them. It was all highlight reels and trophies, from then on. more..
