Lebron James may be the greatest thing since the Red Zone Channel but he is not alone in the debate of greatest major professional sports player on the planet. Because Sidney Crosby plays hockey and the networks cover it as often as Kate Upton does her boobs he doesn’t get the love he deserves. I’m going to break it down and see if Lebron is indeed in a galaxy of his own or if Sidney Crosby may actually be the greatest player on the planet.
Lebron James and Sidney Crosby have countless things in common. Both were anointed the chosen one before playing a single professional minute and both delivered on those high expectations. Both make their teammates significantly better and have the vision to see them open when no one else does. Both have the same amount of titles (1) and both are currently playing at the highest levels of their career.
In order to really compare the two I’m going to have to dig deep and get to the core of what really matters.
First off, save me on all the advance...

The Heat and LeBron James may have went on to win their 20th game in a row last night over the Sixers but for a moment during the game, all eyes were on Jrue Holiday and his spectacular dunk on James.
During the nip-and-tuck game, late in the 4th quarter, Holiday got free into the lane when he went up at the rim only to catch James trying for the block when Jrue caught him.
Jrue Holiday throws down a dunk over LeBron James, but it couldn't stop the Miami Heat from winning their 20th straight game.
Sixers guard Jrue Holiday turned in one pretty crunch time play against the Heat, even if it ultimately came in a losing effort. Sure, it’s not DeAndre Jordan on Brandon Knight. But this is Lebron James, and these are the Sixers, so I’ll take what I can get. If only Spencer Hawes decided to dunk
The Miami Heat won their 20th consecutive game against the Philadelphia 76ers, 98-94, Wednesday night, but the Philly didn’t leave the game without a highlight, however.

MIAMI LeBron James doesn't win Eastern Conference Player of the Week every time.
The Miami Heat star might already have won five during his epic season. But on Monday teammate Dwyane Wade picked up one.
Wade got the nod in the East for averaging 25.3 points, 5.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 3.5 steals while shooting 60.6 percent during a 4-0 week. Wade had 23 points and...
OKC Thunder superstar Kevin Durant excitingly went to Instagram after the Knicks game as he posed for a photo with pastor Carl Lentz , while wearing his trendsetting backpack. Kevin became famous for his backpack trend during the playoffs last season as he rocked them to post-game press conferences, which stirred up a buzz amongst basketball fans and fashion critics, I would say...
LeBron James once carried a team to 66 wins. Ray Allen played for a club that won 19 consecutive games. Dwyane Wade led a team that finished with the Eastern Conference's best record.
For each, it's a footnote in a season where no championship was won.
There's no arguing that the Miami Heat are playing better than any other team in the NBA right now. They've won...

Kevin Durant finished with 26 points against the defensive duo of San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson. The lanky swingmen consistently hounded the NBA's defending three-time scoring champion, forcing him into the least efficient areas of the court -- particularly in spots where Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter could alter the 6-foot-9 forward's shot.
Some Knicks fans may be a little frustrated with Amar’e Stoudemire’s injury issues, and New York Daily News Knicks’ beat writer Frank Isola sprayed a little fuel on their fire with this tweet during Golden State’s 92-63 blowout win over New York last night (via RealGM.com):
For what it’s worth, Mike D’Antoni wanted Knicks to re-sign David Lee & not pursue Amar’e...
DeAndre Jordan's unbelievable monster slam over Brandon Knight was his entry as the NBA's dunk of the year but — when it gets a nod from LeBron James — you know it is the the front runner.

LeBron James has called DeAndre Jordan's amazing monster jam over Brandon Knight the "Dunk of the year" and the game-stopping moment has taken on a life of its own. The Staples Center slam, after an alley-oop pass from Clippers teammate Chris Paul, has been debated and shown ad nauseam on ESPN and already immortalized in The New Yorker.
Now you too can get posterized...
