Lebron James’ days as King are over, he has now become basketball God. I’m sorry, but the comparison to Kobe Bryant should now be a thing of the past. Kobe is a great scorer and defender, but when it comes to pure basketball genius and dominance in almost all aspects of the game-Lebron is alone at the top. Now I’ll admit that I’m a biased Cleveland fan, but when I try and take off the Cleveland hat and just look at the facts, Lebron is a matchup nightmare that is only going to get scarier as the years go on. 6′ 8″ and 250 lbs. of muscle that can pass, shoot, rebound and defend is just not right and has NEVER been seen before. Mike Brown should even split his coach of the year award with Lebron since the guy is pretty much an additional coach on the floor.
Watching him have something to do with 32 straight possessions against the Magic at the end of game 5 ranks up there with some of the greatest performances in the history of the game. If he can pull off 3 in a row and reach the finals for the second time in his career would be legendary and instantly put him in the same category as some of the greats. So take it in basketball fans and realize that you are watching an athlete that has NEVER graced this planet before and may never again.
