I don’t necessarily think Lebron needs five rings to surpass Kobe on the All-Time greatest list, but he definitely needs more than one. This is what Michael Jordan was saying when asked who has had a better career Lebron or Kobe. If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice, but five beats one every time I look at it. And not that he [James] won’t get five. He may get more than that, but five is bigger than one. This isn’t groundbreaking material, just common sense. Lebron still has some work to do, but unlike Kobe, he is just hitting the Optimus Bron stage of his career, so it isn’t out of the question he could get five or more, people just need to be patient before crowning him the king.

Tweet Leading up to the Miami Heat’s game on Tuesday night, LeBron James was the hot topic all day. Talking heads all over the place gawked over LeBron’s streak of games with 30+ points and 60 percent shooting, a streak that he stretched to an NBA-record six games against Portland last night. However, in the [...]
Jason Whitney LeBron James continues to impress
If you were to visit www.wageronsports.com you would likely find short odds on Lebron James retaining his MVP crown, such has been the quality of performances which the Miami Heat star has turned in, game after game, this season. A wager on basketball history was possible in the Heat’s 1,000th victory, a game in which James played...
During his All-Star media session, LeBron James said he heard that Michael Jordan would choose Kobe Bryant over himself because he feels at the end of the day 5 rings is better than 1. However, LeBron doesn’t think rings always define a career:
“At the end of the day, rings don’t always define a career. If that was the case, I would sit up here and say I’d take [Bill] Russell...
Heat forward LeBron James has been lights out in his past seven games. James has been scoring at will and has lead the Heat on a seven game winning streak. LeBron has had record performance with at least 30 points and 60 percent shooting in six straight games. Anytime an all-star player is on a great streak, the media and fans start up the debate who is the best player to have played...
LeBron James, the greatest NBA player in this current era is most certainly going to draw comparisons to the greatest player of the previous era in Michael Jordan. And yes at this point the haters of King James (which I was one) certainly have to bow down at this point. He’s better than Durant and [...]
Kobe told Dwight Howard to leave the Clown Act in Orlando, but to date Howard has ignored him. That is the reason why there has already been several dust ups between Kobe and Dwight.
While Kobe didn’t point out Dwight specifically in these quotes provided by Larry Brown Sports, it is pretty obvious who he is talking about.
“I’m not happy right now and hopefully my teammates...
You can make an argument that Lebron James, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant all could be rated the number one player of All-Time. If I was a betting man, Jordan would be the number one choice. The game in the Jordan era was different, more physical, lots of hand checking and harder fouls were allowed. Second for me would be Kobe. He has the work ethic of MJ and a drive of his...
LeBron has been simply phenomenal this season. It will be very hard for any other player to overcome him in the MVP race
I'm sure you've heard of all the ridiculous, superhuman-like stats that LeBron James of the Heat has put up recently in the month of February in which James' Heat have played six games, five of which they have won. A shooting percentage...
Justin Jackson showed why he is one of the nation's top prospects in 2014 at LeBron James Skills Academy. Here's a highlight reel of him at the event.
Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant were elected starters for Sunday night's NBA All-Star game in Houston.
Despite playing through a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Howard said Monday that he expects to play.
"If I re-aggravate my shoulder in these next two games, I'll probably just play a couple of minutes and sit the rest out," Howard said.
Coach Mike D'Antoni...
via NY Post:
With the way LeBron James has been performing this season, he’s about to walk away with his fourth MVP award of his career (second consecutive). The Miami Heat have 33 games remaining on their regular season schedule, and unless something drastic happens, you can put LeBron’s name on that trophy.
Melo admits that he’s awed by the historic season LeBron is having...
Now that the NBA All-Star break is upon us, it’s time to hand out some mid-season hardware.
You can see my pre-season awards and predictions here. Let’s see how well they have held up.
In what has been a strange season, there have been many surprises at the mid-season mark. Of course you can talk about the Lakers lack of success, a sub-par Dwight Howard, and the firing of Mike...
Dwight Howard had 19 points and 18 rebounds, Antawn Jamison added 19 points, and the Los Angeles Lakers survived Kobe Bryant's bizarre four-point performance for their eighth win in 11 games, 91-85 over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.
