    Skip Bayless is a ******* moron who shouldn't be allowed to write, let alone be on TV. He is constantly wrong, has little backing for any of his opinions and to top it off, he uses those little nicknames that he thinks are clever but are really just sophomoric jabs for someone who has no debating ability whatsoever. He's ESPNs Joffrey.

    Even though I agree with everything you just said, I still get a kick out of him sometimes and enjoy watching when I can, because he's so over the top. I'm not a fan of either him or Stephen A Smith, they're both tools. But the show is funny.

    Re: *** Official 2014 NBA Playoffs Thread ***

    I rarely watch any NBA, and really only watch during the finals. Not a fan of any team, but I was rooting for the Spurs. Sounds like during timeouts, the people who run the music were having a little fun with the no AC - a lot of the songs had something to do with heat/hot.

    Not a big fan of LeBron, but I have to admit, he's easily the most dominant player in the league today. However, I think it's too hard to compare to past greats like Jordan. Different era, different style of play, etc. Kinda like comparing Hank to Babe in baseball as the best home run hitter.

    And different rules too. I'd like to see how lebron fares against hand checking and arm bars.

    If I had to guess I would say it would end with "I can't play under these conditions"

    If he grew up playing like that and could do it himself? You wouldn't be able to score on him. You just wouldn't.

    there were also rules against zone defenses that freed up driving lanes to the hoop. I think he'd fare pretty well as it would allow him to use his size to an even bigger advantage.

    Yeah it always cracks me up when people think the hand checking rules would negatively affect the guy who's 6'8" 260 lbs and a freak athlete. He's got an inch and 50 lbs on Dennis Rodman who was one of the best defensive players ever. LeBron would probably have been the greatest defender ever with those rules.

    You do realize that Rodman shut down Shaq in his prime, right? I don't think I need to look up the weight difference on that one. Rodman vs Lebron would have been awesome to watch.

    It's not even debatable that the hand checking rules and arm bars would have affected Lebron. The way the rules are set up now, it's impossible to guard Lebron straight up without fouling him.

    I'm not debating it, it would have made him probably the greatest defender ever. Look at some of the guys Jordan dealt with, Gerald Wilkins (6'6" 195), Craig Ehlo (6'6" 181), John Starks (6'3" 190). There weren't wing guys even remotely near LeBron's size, he would have destroyed teams defensively.

    Also remember there was no "Mark Jackson" rule back then, LeBron could have just backed down any defender for as long as he wanted. An arm bar isn't going to be able to stop that.

    How often do you see zone defense in the NBA? Not too often. Non-factor.

    Sure it would have made him a better defender, but his offense is what I am referring to.
