    Lebron James

    Last night he scored the last 25 points for Cleveland enroute to 48 point night and a double overtime win. I am really not much of a NBA fan but that is the true meaning of put your team on your back and carrying them to the finish line.

    That was the best individual basketball performance I have ever seen.

    Re: Labron James

    Truly amazing. And in a critical playoff game no less. If the Cavs win the title (of course, finishing Detroit and then San Antoinio will be exceptionally diffficult), he will join MJ and the rest as a legend in my book. Of course, MJ did it many times, but he never had a supporting cast as bad as LeBron has.

    I know I'm jumping the gun here, but I'm just in awe of what he did last night. Hopefully he, Wade, Oden, Durant, Howard, and the rest of the young guys can resurrect the league a little....it's been pretty bad lately. Even for me...a big NBA fan.

    Lebron vs the Pistons

    Did anyone watch this game last night?!?!

    I had to listen to the second half on the radio drivng for work, but DAMN!

    Lebron scored 29 of the last 30 Cavs points for a 2-point victory in DOUBLE OT!

    You missed it if you didn't see it then - find a replay of that sometime, you know it's going to be on ESPN Classic. One of the greatest individual performances I've ever seen.

    It was a great performance but I wouldnt go that far. Lebron was awesome and he finally stepped up for the first time in his career. I have been critical of him not wanting to have the ball in his hands at the end of the game (and when he does have it not producing), but he sure did last night. What I don't get is how the Pistons continually let him get to the lane. All you have to do on Lebron is have a guy step up when he first starts to drive and he will either pass the ball or shoot a jumper (which he is not to good at). Make him pass the ball to his teammates and make Daniel Gibson beat you.

    Lebron is good but not in the elite (yet). He is still behind Kobe, Nash, Wade, Duncan, and Garnett as far as top players in the league. Give him another year or two and he will be there. He doesn't have the built in killer instinct that Jordan/Kobe/Bird had but he can use his unreal ability to make up for it. Last night was the first step towards that IMO

    Re: Lebron James

    Not an NBA guy, yet I think he's better than Kobe - rings and all.

    James was picked up by a very bad Cavs team and dealt with it - making the team better and putting them in position to win a title.

    Kobe, he's got the titles yet if he's not winning - he's whining. Losing is never his fault.

    No way is he better then Kobe. I've seen them both play and its not even close. Hands down Kobe Byrant is the best player in the world.

    Everyone is entitled to there own opinion though.

    I do think Lebron is one of the best in the NBA though, with Wade, Dirk, Duncan, and Nash.

    I've got to disagree with this... he is elite. I don't see any other way to describe him after last nights game. It was just incredible. Detroit didn't have to gaurd anyone other than James (and they didn't). He still found a way to make it happen... cutting to the hoop, drawing fouls, fade away 3's, and double teams, off balance shots... it was really fun to watch.

    Not to mention how many of Kobe's rings have come without the help of Shaq?

    Put Lebron on a team with Shaq and I think he'd prove better than Kobe. I think in time though, he'll prove he's as good without Shaq's help.

    Kobe has 3 more rings but Lebron has 1 less rape ... so I think its about even.

    That's laugh out loud funny.

    Any NBA person would take James over all you mentioned except Duncan.

    Your love for Kobe is a hoot. Kobe has proved he's nothing without Shaq. His killer instinct is good for nothing but meaningless 50 point games and first round playoff exits.

    And all you can do is blame Kobe's teammates.

    Get back to me when Kobe makes a conference finals or wins something.

    Re: Lebron James

    I am not a kobe fan but i think he gets a lot of undeserved blame for eveything with the shaq fall out. I'm sure he has his share of blame though. At that present time would you have rather based your team around Shaq or Kobe? I think everyone would chose Kobe, Shaq is getting older and is starting to go downhill while Kobe is peaking. I think Kobe will finally get a surrounding cast for next season, so it will be time to put up or shut up.

    You always build your team around Shaq. Kobe blew a few titles because of that silly rift. He's wishing he had a mulligan.

    Guys I'd build a team around going forward instead of Kobe (not saying they are better, but they are better team guys). No particular order.

    1. Wade
    2. Duncan
    3. LeBron
    4. Oden
    5. Josh Howard.
    6. Bosch.
    7. Deron Williams, I think that is the name of the Utah guy.
