I've been watching basketball since 73'. (I was 6 years old). Really started to comprehend the game in 77'. have seen the entire careers of guys like Moses Malone, Magic, Bird, Hakeem, Jordan etc.

With that said Lebron is one of the most deserving candidates in the history of the game.

First of many. I shudder to think how good that kid is going to be in his prime. He was the first mega hyped basketball rookie of my era that didn't fold under pressure somewhat.

Kobe didn't really start getting that level of hype until a few seasons in. Hell, he was barely drafted in the Lottery (13th overall), and didn't even play that much his first year.

KG was superhyped, but until he went to Boston he had so little playoff success he seemed somewhat of a disappointment (in terms of all time greatness).

Lebron has lived up to the massive expectations of greatness from year one.

Did you even read what you just quoted: Barely drafted in the LOTTERY- ie. the first 14 picks. Kids today.

Actually back that there were 29 teams in the league and 13 lottery picks [the Bobcats were added in 2004-05 to replace the Hornets]. Kobe was the last pick in the lottery in 96 and actually made us [Charlotte Hornets] deal him to LA for Vlade Divac. If Kobe never demanded that trade the Hornets would still be in Charlotte.
