Good article. I defiinitely agree 5 games through his second NBA season as a 19 (?) year old is waay to early to measure or predict his future.

You're a n00b, that's why.

I told you I can work something out if you really want me to, that goes for anyone. I've got Comcast Sportsnet and means better than a TV Tuner to upload with.

LeBron is the next Magic, Melo just plain sucks, and a whinning lil biatch, the next Antoine Walker in best case scenario, but most likely the next Glenn Robinson.

Melo need to STFU and stop gauranteeing sh!t, remember he gauranteed a gold medal before the Olympics? what a dumbfvck. Now hes gauranteeing a playoff berth.

The difference between LeBron and the players listed is that the players listed win, LeBron doesn't.

it takes time, just like the article stating that Jordan took time to win, kobe in his first few years didn't win either but both eventually did.

exactly, they shouldn't compare him to the likes of those elite athletes until he wins and proves something. mcgrady has had the same numbers for a few years, but guess what? he doesn't win so nobody cares!

But last I checked basketball was a team sport. If this is a discussion about skills or athletic ability why should "winning" even be part of the equation? Sure, if it was his fault his team wasn't winning then you would have a point.

Yeah, people need to stop all the hype until he can perform when it counts.
His shot selection is poor IMO.

Lebron needs someone else to win, There is no one else on the Cavs. Jordan had a great supporting cast namely Pippen and Magic had the laker group with a lot of great players. Lebron is a great player, I think the article is to early!! The Cavs suck, they have no one except for Lebron. He needs one more player that team that can dominate.

nobody will ever surpass jordan. jordan pumped in 30 a night, every night. every whoops and hollers when lebron hits 25 pts saying what a great game and the cavs still lose, but jordan did it every day.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas is a good shooter and among the best centers in the league. Big Z was the one that hit the three-pointer to tie the game last night. For the record, Zydrunas is 7'3", 260lbs and is averaging ~20ppg.

i heard last night was impressive, leading the cavs back against the Suns.

last night was WOW!! but it was ilgauskas who took the cavs back in the game. James helped but ilgauskas deserve the credit. He made 3 3-pointers that caused the overtime and the lead over the suns.
