Until LeBron knows how to hit a jump shot, There will be no ring for him. Unless he plays with an MVP big man like a Yao Ming.

Mo Williams > Larry Hughes. Last year LeBron scored 45 points againts the best defensive team in the NBA.

Yao Ming is still a 2nd round virgin because the Rockets don't have a Great Point Forward in their starting lineup.

That 35-percent was good enough to give the Celtics their toughest challenge in the playoffs and had a chance to win in Boston in Game 7 with under five minutes to play.

LeBron James-led teams have done pretty damn well in the playoffs thus far in his career.

I think everyone would agree that Boston wasn't playing well during that stretch of the playoffs. Hawks ended up taking them to 7 games but no one is giving Joe Johnson credit that Cavs fans want Lebron to get (JJ had a better series statistically too). I recall Ray Allen having trouble with his shot during the first two series too.

If Shaq were playing with Lebron right now he would've said Lebron > Kobe. Just like he said Wade > Kobe when he was in Miami. Then they made up, and the feud died, Shaq got traded and then jumped back on Kobe's nuts. He probably does want to catch a free ride to another Championship, knowing Bynum just got hurt, and they got room for his fat ass.

He scored 45 but it wasn't very efficient (didn't even shoot 50%) and ended up dominating the ball way too much. He did have a very impressive stretch in the fourth quarter though where he was making ridiculous shots. Pierce had a better game than him though (43 points) and Lebron checked him for most of the game. Lets not forget the other side of the story here...

You know who actually doesn't believe Kobe > LeBron? Kobe fans. Why else would they fear and obsess over #23 so much?

Trying to compare the Hawks-Celtics series to the Cavs-Celtics series is not going to turn out well for your unbiased viewpoints.

The Celtics absolutely destroyed the Hawks in every game in Boston. While the series went seven games, the Celtics were never in serious jeopardy of losing that series.

The Cavs, on the other hand, had chances to win late in the games in Boston, with the exception of Game 2 (which ended 89-73). Every other game in Boston was nip-and-tuck. In fact, the Cavs' three wins in Cleveland were much more decisive than 3-of-4 of the games in Boston.

It was clear throughout that series that those teams were not far apart. For the majority of the series, neither team saw a lead in the double-digits... It usually lingered around five one way or the other.

Yeah there's a reason why the title under the OP's username says "Biased Kobe fan" I'll reserve judgment on who deserves the MVP award because the season is not over yet but at this point, LeBron is the front runner. I bet Shaq can't even provide any logical reason for picking Kobe over LeBron for MVP...the guy is just talking out of his ass (as always).

This is the third time this year Shaq has said this and it's the third time ESPN has reported it. Why???

If Sunday's Cavaliers-Lakers game wasn't enough evidence, take Shaquille O'Neal's word for it.

"Kobe Bryant is better."

LeBron James? He's pretty good, too. But Kobe is the best the Big Diesel has ever played with.

"Kobe's probably a 10," O'Neal said Tuesday night. "LeBron's a 9.7, 9.8. He's a fabulous player who does it the right way and gets everybody involved. Those guys [Cavaliers] are playing at a very, very high level right now because of him."
