^^See, that is something I can agree with. This has nothing to do with me being a homer, this is about people overreacting to every single fucking thing that happens in Lebron's career which becomes redundant and annoying. I'm not denying Lebron's claim at best in the world, but to say he's vaulting people because one great postseason and possibly another is absurd when the all time greats have had many.
I never said LeBron was currently better than Kobe. I said if LeBron wins another MVP, wins another ring and gets another Finals MVP then me personally, I'd put him ahead of Kobe. You say Kobe would have more MVP's if he didn't have to play on terrible teams at his peak, I can also say LeBron would have more rings if he got to play with peak Shaq for the first 8 years of his career.
How is LeBron being overhyped? He is damn great right now and is by far the best player in the NBA. And it isn't even close. He's killing the league and the guy is coasting. He's coasting! I used to be on the LeBron ain't all the good, Heat aren't the favorites shit too but time to face the truth. The Heat are the top dogs right now and while they aren't locks for anything, they are clearly the frontrunners. It's been proven that in the playoffs no one can stop LeBron, except for himself. And those confidence issues are more than likely in the past now. Wade after getting off to a slow start, is starting to play great and Bosh has always been a consistent player. They have some good role players in Ray, Battier, Haslem & Chalmers, all of which, especially Ray & Chalmers aren't afraid to step up in clutch moments.
Magic stop. LOL at "just because they have the Thunder's number doesn't mean the same can be said for the rest of the contenders." As if the Thunder aren't better than every other contender.
He's overhyped because he's once again being compared in the same dominant breath as Jordan, I don't disagree with his standing in the NBA currently, but the all time shit is laughable imo. He's also not coasting, don't be ridiculous, this exactly the shit I'm talking about. Do you think he can honestly somehow play better than this.
And they're the top dogs for now, I'm sure your opinion will change in a month like it always does. It wasn't even that long ago you were talking about their flaws, which are still very much present but at the moment not as obvious due to Lebron dominating. The Heat, defensively, still have major problems and unless Lebron plans to guard every opposing player those problems won't magically disappear nor will their lack of quality big men.
Are the Thunder better than Spurs? inb4 you call the Spurs chokers again. Spurs, with their depth and team styled play could very well beat the Heat in a 7 game series. There's also the Pacers which give the Heat a boatload of problesm every time they play. Calling any team a lock to win a championship in any year is moronic in every single way in any given sport, there's a reason the championship isn't awarded at the end of the regular season so I recommend you stop...which you eventually will once Heat hit a slump and your opinion takes another 180.
