This and it's not even debatable.

Hakeem couldn't even make bron's footwork better, that's how bad he is in the post. All those hours working together and for nothing.

Lebron travels non stop and the fact that his stans don't know this shows how little they know about the rules of basketball.

One of, if not the most skilled player of all time. He is the best swiss army knife type player to ever exist. Let me guess though, it is all athletic ability with no skill?

You should be banned for knowing so little about ball to begin with.

But if you agree with Phils point of view in that article (which im sure you do) & such/his basketball opinions then you agree with also Lebron > Kobe, Kobe should played like Lebron or that Lebron has tools to be better than Jordan and stuff like that....

Kindof condractive for a guy who thinks Lebron travels all the time all of the sudden... im sure thats not how he would have wanted Kobe to play, nor is that a tool to better than Jordan.... hm...

Thats what I told him. He said that Lebron worked in the post in Miami thus he has footwork.

Does that answer your question?

If we are talking about footwork, there is a dude about the size of LeBron that looks like Usher out there compared LeFlop. Cause LeFlop has not this.

Blake Griffin.

Pauk, Lebron travels more than enough for it to be noticeable. This isn't news

look out how awful his footwork is in the first pla of this video I haven't even watched the rest because that was bad enough and is very recent. Ignore the terrible music. His footwork can be terrible at times and good at others, but isn't nearly consistent enough. To say he has GOAT footwork is laughable

...Mark, im sure Lebron gets caught traveling, but just as much as Jordan or Kobe or anybody did.... does Kobe have footwork? "Well he doesnt, because he gets caught traveling alot" --> https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...+bryant+travel

Stupid way of evaluating footwork...

Mark, i know who you are, i know your agenda... i dont know why im trying to have an impartial basketball discussion with you when it never worked before....
