    LeBron's Chalk Dusting

    Seriously, people don't know Jordan did this first?

    LeBron James was not the first to toss chalk. That's MJ's move - Ball Don't Lie - NBA* - Yahoo! Sports

    yeah, but LeBron makes a bigger deal about it blowing it up in to the air. It signifies that he's the next bigger and better thing. heavy sarcasm

    Re: LeBron's Chalk Dusting

    Well what LeBron does looks nothing like what Jordan did. There is no similarity other than the fact that power is in the air. Now KG on the other hand....

    Anyone actually watch KG the last 3-4 years. Guy is about the dirtiest player and biggest trash talker I've ever seen. For whatever reason he turned from a guy who let his play do the talking to a total punk when he went to Boston.

    I'm guessing I'm only 4-5 years older than you. It's not like every generation is guaranteed a Babe Ruth every 10 years or so. If our generation thinks that way we're fricking morons.

    LeBron is this generation's Dominique Wilkins at this point if you want to get into specific comparisons like this. In the last ten years there has been an athlete who could be mentioned alongside Jordan (Woods, maybe even Kobe), LBJ is not one of them yet, especially after seeing where his priorities lie this summer.

    If a player like Jordan came along every ten years he wouldn't be Jordan. Same for Babe Ruth and Muhammad Ali.

    Kobe is our generations MJ. LeBron has not won anything to warrant a consideration to be placed in the same sentence.

    I measure success by rings.

    Kobe isn't MJ either, he is closer to Pippen. Shaq was the star of his first three championships, but he was the star of the last 2.

    Comparing Jordan to Babe Ruth and Ali is laughable.

    I don't consider it that much of a stretch. They were three of the biggest athletes of the 20th century
