    Unlike Curry, Lebron doesn't get taken out of the game on final defensive possessions and he always checks opposing teams SF
    Which is not a great thing...
    Wasn't there a stat that players defended by James shot over 60% in the Finals in 2017?

    Lebron has been terrible on defense for the longest, he only shines against offensively-challenged teams that don't have a lot of ball movement, he's been terrible in the past two Finals.


    Which is hilarious, because he often calls out his teammates for messing up, when his own lack of D is part of the problem, especially in Regular Seasons. You saw the Lakers go from an above-average defensive team this year to allowing 110-120 every game once James returned and Zo got injured, his defense sure isn't what it used to be.

    With James, we suffered one of the worst defeats in Lakers history by losing 94 - 136 to Oladipo-less Pacers and we allowed Philly to drop 143 just a few games later.. just awful.



    Curry's a more consistent defensive player at his position in the Playoffs, you don't see him mess up that often though sometimes he gets in foul trouble.

    They're both aweful. LeBron is a bit older also. he was a way better defender than Steph at the same age. Steph gets lit up on regular and he's in his prime. Let's see how bad it is when he's lebrons age.

    Because Klay is better defender than Curry. It doesn't mean Lebron is better defender.

    If Lebron was a teammate of Durant, Durant would probably match with the star SF's or PF's.
