Believe me, I'm not even talking about hand checking, etc. I'm primarily talking about enforcers that would make sure you'd think twice, if you were going off on them.
You even had guard enforcers like a Vernon Maxwell, that would literally start a fight with you, if you were owning his team. Or do super dirty things that would get you off your game.
With Lebron's mentality, would he be able to deal with that, without wilting?
