Default Kawhi surpassed LeBron

Outplayed Lebron against the Heat already

Won a ring WITHOUT collusion

How am I wrong?


Let's be honest

Lets be honest, we know youíre not serious.

I know the Bron stans on this site are cancerous, but at the end of the day we all know whatís good. Bron is still the best player in the league. I miss seeing him in the playoffs.

- Amongst several others, he won a finals MVP playing against Lebron.
- He didn't need two superstar teams to win a ring
- Plus he plays defense






Yep, i think you are right.

You guys conflate physical talent with playing winning basketball

You forget that Lebron missed the playoffs with the East all-star center in 2005.. why does this matter? Because it shows lebron underachieved his whole career... Missed playoffs in 05'... Lost as favorite from 09-11' including debacles in 10' and 11'... Record defeat despite even odds in 14'.. more record losses in 17' and 18

That's an entire career of underachieving... Like, how could the greatest player ever team up with the next best player in the league and then lose in 2011? And be an underdog in 12'? Overall, lebron lost or was an underdog for 7 of 8 years alongside Wade/Bosh/Allen and Kyrie/Love ..

that's nowhere near goat...... Goat + 2 superstars = goat domination and winning...... not perennial loser/underdog status... So the equation is broken - apparently, Bron ain't goat..

Overall, these are good points, and indisputable facts. LeBron is an ATG, top 5-10. He's currently overrated by fans and media. A few years after he retires and nostalgia has worn off, his career will be looked at with more clear eyes and his overall ranking will be moved back to its appropriate place. Not a knock on him, just have to start looking at him objectively.

No they arenít.. when did that happen? I watched Kawai in finals Lebron would of made bigger impact more consistently. He is good but Lebron is superior on offense. Lebron would of dominated these finals against that warriors team. KD is on shelf for a year and may never be the same but keep fishing.

Nah, Lebron would have lost to the Warriors and you would have slammed the board with cries about the warriors being stacked. As it is, Kawhi has overtaken your hero. Deal with it.
