Fair enough.

"I have never seen a great player get the excuses that LeBron gets."

Regarding this, in all honesty is their anyone who has taken more criticism then LeBron? I'm not talking about The Decision. I'm talking about passing to a wide open Donyell Marshall who misses a game winning 3 and LeBron get's destroyed by the press for passing up the shot, or when he throws his warmups on the ground near a ball boy it's all over ESPN, or when he tells his mom to sit down people got pissed, or how he was basically expected to have 5 rings by now. NO athlete on earth gets as much criticism as LeBron James. Kobe got flack for Shaq and his alleged rape case, yes, but nowhere near LeBron's level. Hell, once Kobe made the playoffs again no one even remembered the rape case.

You should visit the message boards on ESPN...

I'm talking strictly media.

I'm talking strictly media. Obviously the Kobe 'haters' will use this to discredit him on boards/forums (ridiculous imo), but no one in the media has mentioned it.

It's too easy for Chalmers

It's too easy for Chalmers and Chris Bosh too... Even Joel Anthony apparently.

For now...

Okay, if you watched last night's game, I think it's hard to argue for Kobe over LeBron right now. I truly mean that as no disrespect to Kobe, but LeBron has been playing out of his mind this year, and can do some things that no one has ever been able to do. Kobe is a poor man's version of MJ, but LeBron is truly breaking new ground with his game...

He is probably both the fastest and the strongest player in the NBA currently. If you had to choose one player to defend Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant, or Dwight Howard, I think LeBron would very possibly be your first choice for each.

Of course, after last year's Finals performance, he has a lot to prove in the postseason, but...I am a big Bulls fan, and the way he closed out Game 5 against them was one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen, and I grew up watching MJ.
