Lebron was good but the days are over. He is already declining at age 26, how pathetic.

That's not the case anymore with the emergence of Rose, Durant, Dirk and Wade's playoff relevance. LeBron's not even Top 3 anymore. Kobe's not even Top 5. Nobody wants to waste arguing about 2 players like that.

Besides the fact that he can finish top 10 in all-time assists despite being a 6'8 perimeter player who is also a volume scorer?

I'm assuming he gets all his assists by "bulldozing" and "running people over" too right?

For all his lack of skill it's funny that he's still one of the most efficient volume scorers in the league currently, in addition to being one of the most versatile players of all-time.

You're going down a very illogical path with this argument. You can make cases that plenty of big men are more "skilled" than Dwight, but unfortunately, basketball incorporates a lot more than just skill. It's funny to hear so many people go back to the "oh, but xx is more skilled than him" because that's all they have left. Skill means nothing if it doesn't translate to on court effectiveness and efficiency.

Never mind the company he's in for his individual achievements throughout his career.

^ You're right. That all comes from just being athletic; absolutely nothing to do with skill. It's odd we don't see more people who are insanely athletic dominating the sport to the level he has. I mean, without any skill, there should be countless examples of people doing what he's doing right? Or at least to some degree.

Quit trollin dude or pass me some of that kush you're smoking.
