LeBron shot under 30% outside of 5 feet. If Delly and Mozgod didn't save his ***, ol boy was getting swept yet again. LeBron stays getting credit for putting up hollow stats. Most overrated player in NBA history.
delly and mosgov saving lebron? lebron avg almost a trpile double in the finals being "hollow"? how can a 4x league MVP be overrated?
In the 6 games against Lebby's Incredible Defense, Iggy had 5 double digit performances (highlighted by a 25 point game and a 22 point game). 5 out of 6 games. Finals MVP.
neglects to mention that lebron doesnt guard iggy or anyone else on every single play. also fails to mention that harrison barnes and klay thompson had horrible and bad series performances offensively (which also saw heavy minutes with lebron defending)
also fails to mention that iggy played 10+ more minutes than he usually did in any other playoff series (almost 1 full quarter)

if you really watch this video and the other one posted, and were honest and unsalty about it, you would see that this "15 min video" really should be about 2 mins. and you would also be honest and say that any other player that is on court as much as lebron would have the same amount of defensive inefficiencies
LeBron James hasn't been a defense force for a few years now. If you think otherwise, you don't understand the game of basketball. wink.gif
he was all defense 3rd team last year. i never said he was a great defender now. at one time in his career he was. but now, he's still a good defender. and by all means still better than curry (who most times leaves duties of guarding the other teams pg up to klay thompson)
Yep. In 2015, as a general manager, you are given the opportunity to pick either Lebby James or Steph Curry.
Not 2006 Lebby James. Not broken ankles Steph Curry. 2015 Lebby or Steph.
what kind of an argument is this? when making this argument, age is always one of the biggest factors in determining who you would choose, lebron is older, so of course you choose curry. in order for this to be a relevant debate, you have to choose between both players at the same age and point in their careers...in which you would then choose lebron in a landslide.
these are just a few of your exact quoted posts.
i am def not knocking you. you have been the only one that has based the debate on some good facts. my bad for saying you have no basketball knowledge, because its obvious that you do. but a few of these other guys are just plain talking silly.
but in the same breath to not ackknowledge any points i've made like i havent been using stats or fact based evidence is nonsense as well.Edited by rawdawg34 - 11/15/15 at 11:25am
