Not a fan, but Lebron is the best current athlete of any of the 4 major American sports right now

MJ didn't win his first until he was 28, Lebron has 2.

Through their first ten years, lebron has 2, MJ had 3. MJ was also 32 when he finished his tenth year. I think they're starting to be pretty comparable. LeBron has the highest PPG in game 7s in league history.

MJ left the Bulls for baseball, and they were still a strong playoff team. Lebron left the Cavs and they've been a lottery team ever since. but shame on him for not winning a title with that collection of scrubs.

MJ played with great players too. Scottie Pippen is one of the best 30 players of all time.

LeBron is already one of the 10 best players ever. 4 regular season MVPs and 2 Finals MVPs speak for themselves. Being only 28, he has a great shot of becoming one of the top 3 players and a reasonable chance at catching Michael.

Yeah, MJ had Scottie Pippen. Lebron had Mo Williams in Cleveland.

An all-time great? Obviously. I'd still take MJ over him. He's just ahead of Magic and Bird.

Yeah, in addition to my above ramblings on why Im just a Heat "hater" you can include Bosh being ridiculed for how awful his flops are and refusing to stop doing it, Lebron getting carried off the floor by 4 people after a leg cramp, and D Wade leaving the court hunched over crying in a wheel chair from a shoulder injury.

My mistake, it was two people. But the funeral procession was right behind him.

Honestly, where do you guys get off judging another person about what does and doesn't hurt? I bet at some point in your life you guys have stubbed your toes and laid on the ground for 20 minutes praying to some higher power to make the pain stop. Make fun of the decision, or the arrogance at a party for Heat fans, but leave injuries out of it.

That is my largest pet peeve in the world, you have no idea what is going through their head and how they are feeling. Make fun of them for everything else, fine, but making fun of someone that is hurt is utterly low.

Dude, this isnt Marc Staal getting hit in the eye with a puck, this isnt a defenseless receiver getting blown up across the middle, this aint a hitter taking a fastball to the ribs. We're talkin about professional atheletes who are in impossibly prime physical shape not being able to handle a leg cramp, or a sore shoulder. And we arent jobbing all NBA players, mainly these certain instances above, but these guys do it routinely. You can't watch that video of Paul Pierce, and watch Dwayne Wade lie all over the floor or hop around on 1 leg like a 5 year old with a scraped knee every time he gets bumped, and not expect people to roll their eyes. I'll admit I dont have the biggest threshold of pain, but i've slid across basketball courts during games before, I've pulled muscles and pinched nerves - I've never needed to be strechered from one room to the next. If pain from that kind of stuff is so debiltating to their bodies, I doubt they would be capable of reaching the peak of what it takes to be a pro athlete

Well, the Dwayne Wade in the wheelchair is a dislocated (or separated) shoulder that had been plaguing him for a long time that season. Having someone's bony knee or elbow strike you hurts. Add the size of the men and it could easily be extremely painful. Again, you have no idea what these guys are dealing with physically. People can roll their eyes all they want, but an injury is an injury.

And honestly, Dwayne Wade is one of the most injury plagued players and yet he continues to try and try to be able to play through numerous injuries. The Lebron picture I believe turned out to be a severe cramp which can easily be crippling. As for Paul Pierce's injury I am not sure. But in any event, mocking them proves nothing about who they are or what makes them anything more than human. As you said, they weren't for buying a foul. They were apparently in actual pain.

So much pain the guys in the video said he missed what, a minute and a half of game time? The guy looked like he was on deaths door and came jogging out busting 3's 120 seconds later. And yeah Wade tries so hard and fights thru all those injuries and plays. You can't tell me their bodies are capable of that kind of recovery but they are almost lifeless when the actual "injury" occurs. Please.

I can post a video of Crosby lying on the ice motionless like he got shot after Downie rolled on his leg, even though he was fine and playing moments later. Or I can post a video of Rajon Rondo tearing his ACL and continuing to play the rest of the game. Not really sure what it accomplishes either way.
