Default You have a choice between 2000 era Shaq and current Lebron....

Who do you take? Want to steer the discussion away from Lebron vs Jordan/kobe/ durant etc etc for a bit.

He's up there with Shaq and Malone as one of the strongest players in NBA history.

I probably take prime shaq over anyone not name MJ.. And then there is a decent list of other names.. Then after that maybe Lebron

The answer is always prime shaq. His best competition would be Dwight Howard. Think about that. He'd be even better in the 10s than he was in late 90 early 2000

Shaq seems like he would be more work to keep happy. If it was like NBA 2k where things like that don't matter then Shaq. In reality LeBron is probably the safer option.

Lebron has hard time guarding David West. He is physically weaker.
