    Lebron

    Its rare that you see an athlete who is truly a force of nature. Lebron is so spectacular its amazing. Offensively, he is as effect as Michael Jordan. He is nowhere near the defensive player that jordan was, but on the offensive side of the ball, the way he elevates the play of his teamates puts him a level up from kobe in my book. Of course, he can only pass it to open guys, he cant shoot for them.

    ramming speed to all

    Lebron is no Jordan. Who knows if he ever will be.

    I agree, though, that he is a force of nature. It is rare that a player is so physically superior to others playing his position in basketball. LeBron has the body of a power forward, and the skills of a PG, SG and SF.

    There have been others, though, who were similarly "off the chart." Magic Johnson was a PG in the body of a power forward (and had the skills to play any position on the court). Shaq's combination of size and athleticism was unmatched, particularly in his first 10 years in the league.

    With Jordan, it was not as much about size (there have been other 6'6 SGs). He just had an unmatched combination of skill, athleticism, competitive nature and fearlessness. Its no accident that he won 6 titles and was the MVP in every finals series he played in.

    This may not have anything to do with Athleticism but.....

    The SKY HOOK by Kareem Abdul Jabbar has never been duplicated.

    He's no Kobe Bryant. He can't control the pace of the game like Kobe. He can't post people up and run the offense like Kobe. He doesn't have the knowledge of the game that Kobe has and he doesn't have the leadership that Kobe has. He also is not nearly as fundamentally sound as Kobe and his shooting is nowhere near Kobe's level.

    He might be stronger and more athletic than Kobe but he is not a better basketball player.
