If you haven’t guessed, we’re talking about LeBron James.
This guy isn’t just pretty damn good, he’s the best player in basketball. We’ve served up gallons of haterade towards the man on the BSP blog. He symbolizes what we despise about the NBA. Namely biased officials, love of ratings, outright homerism streaming out of the mouths of so-called “analysts”, sportscaster worship of players and the fact the league is just a commercial for league apparel sales. I’m never going to call a basketball player who didn’t even go to college the initials of a former U.S. President. Then, the LB James reality is, he’s the best player in that sport, on both ends of the court and by a lot. He’s like a Great White Shark loitering on the court.
Did you see any of the highlights of LB James playing against the New York Knicks today?
Virtually everything was a spectacular dunk OR a tremendous defensive play. LB James trailed four Knicks jogging down the court. They allowed LB James to race by them and get a mind-bending dunk. Later, LB James intimidated J.R. Smith into missing a layup, then blocked a layup/dunk attempt by Tyson Chandler. CENTER Tyson Chandler.
LB James can defend anyone, with the possible exception of a point guard like a healthy Derrick Rose, Chris Paul or Tony Parker. No one can defend him for an extended period of time. He’s going to make you pay for a bad pass, or lazy play.
