I like when LBJ gets pissed and as somewhat of an a hole. He is too nice most of the time... He needs that mean streak that Kobe and Jordan have/had. He usually plays better that way also.

Haven't seen this type of beast mode since MJ

He's on a level that we have not seen since MJ. It's funny, I read a few articles from writers who hated Lebron couple of years back but now rooting for Lebron during his streak because he's playing on "greatness" level and they want to see what else he can pull off.

Even Cleveland wants him back lol

MJ was never this good. I know MJ has this weird mind control over people, but he was never this good. The only run I've ever seen that's in the conversation is Shaq's run in the early 00's. What LeBron is doing right now is incredible.

Yeah, but he's never averaged 35-5-5 for a season.

I some what agree with this. Jordan was a tough competitor no doubt. But as far as dominant skill and dominant physical-ness, only Shaq reminds me of this beast mode.

Shaq was the most dominating player I've seen. He was unstoppable even if you played perfect defense on him...he was bigger and quicker no matter who guarded him. When Shaq decided to dominate - nothin' could stop him. So, in that aspect I agree with the comparison.

I think the reason why MJ's name is being brought up (other than most consider him the greatest) is his ability to bring back his team from behind and win games that they should not have won.
I agree with what Pete said above...I still believe MJ is the greatest of all time as of today...but it is kinda weird how he has the mind control over people.

Some people who don't even know/watch basketball will tell you MJ is the greatest of all time. Lol

Before I throw out some numbers - I want to make it clear. I don't think Lebron is better than Jordan at this point in his career. But, if you want to compare the stats - compare them fairly. Don't pick and choose a year here or a year there.

Jordan's average over first 766 games:
30.96 ppg ---- 5.48 apg ---- 6.21 rpg

Lebron's has played 756 games in his career....his average:
27.6 ppg ---- 6.9 apg ---- 7.3 rpg

Except during his rookie year...Lebron had at least averaged 6 assist a game. He averaged 5.9 in his rookie year.
Except twice in his career...Lebron had at least averaged 7 rebounds a game. He averaged 5.7 in rookie year and 6.7 in his 4th year.

Jordan has averaged over 6 assist a game only 3 times in his career.
Jordan has averaged over 7 rebounds a game only 1 time in his career.

...and Lebron came straight out of high school.

Oh ok - good. I don't have to calculate the average of Kobe's first 700 games.
Tonight, the Suns continue their pwnage over the Minnesota Timberwolves, bwahahaha!
Shabazz Muhammad Lied About His Age: He's 20


Shabazz Muhammad was born in Los Angeles on Nov. 13, 1993 according to the UCLA media guide, but a copy of his birth certificate indicates he was born exactly one year earlier in 1992.

Asked about the discrepancy, Holmes insisted his son was 19 and born in Nevada. "It must be a mistake," he said.

Several minutes later, he changed his account, saying that his son is, in fact, 20 and was born in Long Beach.

"Bazz is going to blow up in the NBA lets team up and blow this thing up!!!" Holmes wrote in a text message. "I'm going to need a publicist anyway why shouldn't it be you. We can do some big things together."

Not NBA news.

But the last high school phenom who lied about age was Felipe Lopez. Who ended up being a NBa bust.
nuggets vs. heat finals?

(plus, I think Cleveland might get this pick anyway)
