With his soft ass. There wouldn't be any refs to hide behind. Back in the day, he'd feel like a lost child.

Especially with all the hype he got, since High school. Guys would be gunning for him on a nightly basis.

Same thing. There were guys like Vernon Maxwell that would straight up punch you in the stomach if you went off on him. Or do little cheap shit that would get you technicals, and thrown out of the game now a days.

You even had guard enforcers like a Vernon Maxwell, that would literally start a fight with you, if you were owning his team. Or do super dirty things that would get you off your game.

With Lebron's mentality, would he be able to deal with that, without wilting?
People over blow this. You act like he couldn't defend himself. If MJ could so could lebron. What mentality right now are you talking about exactly?

I feel sorry for the defender that tries to hit Lebron.

LeBron has gotten molested several times this year. I'm serious I'll show the videos But yes if players are using cheap tactics like that than how is that really a pleasure to watch? Only bitches do that shit, certainly nothing alpha or manly about that. Rose would cry to his mom if cheap shit like that was still here. It's good they took ***** shit like that from the game

Yeah we suck. Move the team.

Just his cry baby mentality. He just isn't a killer to me. Trust me, I hate Kobetards, and I'm not one, but, even Kobe was a tough dude. He'd straight up fight you, or wouldn't cry like a little girl, when he gets intentionally ****ed with. Guys like MJ, Stockton, list goes on and on.

My point wasn't that I enjoy watching that stuff. My point was, he doesn't have to go through the mental stress of stuff like that, like an MJ had to go through. Even Kobe had to go through the fire. Then the league got all tech/whistle/toss you out the game, and fine you, happy.

Now a days, there's none of that. If you do, you're out of the game, and get suspended.

That reason alone prevents him from being the G.O.A.T.

Remember, back in the day, there were teams trying to take MJ's head off from the opening tip.

Players have it too easy these days.

Who wants to challenge LeTank at the rim? They'll be the one ending up on their ass.

I should have chosen my words wiser. I should have said, someone being at the rim, and undercutting him, or elbowing him in the face/chest/stomach. Some egregious type foul by today's standards.

Oh, yeah, back when people cheated, and endangered the good health and long careers of other players, because those players were better than them and beating them.

Back when people countered skill and beauty with anger and force.

The good old days.
