    Here's a better question, Who, in the long run, is better.

    Dirk or LeBron Bron?

    LeBron.

    He's the best player on the planet.

    You don't need a bunch of Heat fans to tell you that.

    NBA people will tell you that as well.

    Best ever? I just want perspective.



    I honestly find the NBA completely and totally unwatchable, I'm just enjoying the homeristic rhetoric

    When his career is over, I think he'll be one of the best ever. He's easily the best player on the planet today.

    He'll win a title this season.

    But it won't matter. People will still criticize his career for some reason.

    There is no one on the planet that can beat Lebron one on one... Either the player you match him up with will be too slow or too small or wont be able to score on Lebron...Like say Kobe...he would be able to score on Lebron but Lebron would make him work real hard and Kobe would not be able to slow down Lebron..

    Now I will say that LeBron is the best transition basketball player the NBA has ever seen. Once LeBron gets in transition, you'd better foul him.

    Jordan was good in transition but Jordan's game was more about isolating a defender and then taking you off the dribble and driving to the basket to draw fouls. Jordan could back his way down and then use that patented fade away. LeBron doesn't have that at all.

    Agreed...Lebron is just too strong or too fast for defenders.. Jordan and Wade have similar games.. Jordan did a great job of taking advantage of smaller guards in the post...In the Finals against Seattle , he abused Gp in the post. Jordan may be the best finishing wing player..(Along with best of all time)..If jordan got the ball in the painted area he was scoring.

    Lebron, and I dont even think it's close.

    Only few actually have actually slowed Lebron from what i've seen, Shawn Marion who I am baffled can keep up with all these guys is one of the better examples in the finals. Lebron had 24pts-1 turnover, 20pts-5 turnovers, 17pts-4 turnovers, 8pts-4 turnovers, 17pts-4 turnovers, and 21pts-6 turnovers.

    He killed it in most of the other playoff games too, only few can really slow him down. He is the best active player though.

    Lebron is the best overall player in the league and he is the most athletically gifted.

    But Durant is FOUR years younger and he already is more potent on offense and has more range than Lebron. FOUR years from now KD will be in the prime of his career while Lebron will be closer to the end of his prime and KD has the length and agility to be a better defender . . . but he is far from a liability on defense he just isn't a Lebron James on defense. Plus Lebron has this "wtf" moments in the media that make you question his intelligence while KD seems like the "Andre Johnson" of the NBA . . . goes out there and handles business, loves competition and loves to play.

    One thing is for certain, factoring age and ability, I think those are the 2 best players in the league right now . . . and if it is Miami vs. OKC in the finals . . . I wouldn't just giftwrap that to Miami . . . Miami is a better team this year, much better . . . but that OKC team we would see IMO would be better than the Dallas team that beat us last year.

    Would be real fun to watch.
