He would have to parlay his insane athleticism and presence into a bunch of more championships, and he would have to work on his jumper, but I really think he can potentially surpass Jordan.
LeBron James was presented with his fourth MVP award in five years prior to Miami’s Game 1 vs. the Bulls Monday night, and he will be sporting a special edition of the his signature shoe, the LeBron X, to honor the award.

His defense is outstanding, his passing and rebounding is stellar like usual, he’s improved his offensive efficiency, and he’s even become a good outside shooter. But the one area James feels he needs to improve is free throw shooting.
James is a career 74.7 percent free throw shooter. His highest percentage...

LeBron James was quite clearly MVP.
There really was no doubt about it. When I was on with 103.7 The Game in Lafayette, La., on Friday, they asked me if you could make any argument to vote for anyone aside from LeBron James. I told him you could make an argument for Carmelo Anthony perhaps . . . but it was not a good one...

There are few things that I enjoy more than poster dunks and during tonight’s Pacers/Knicks game two, Carmelo Anthony threw down a rather nasty dunk.
