No. Not one individual player can defend the elite offensive players. Only guy who can stop Lebron is himself and that shaky jumpshot. But when hes on, just get out of the way or you may turn into a poster

I don't think it's impossible
but I can't think of anyone who has the footwork to keep him in front of them.
Maybe Joe Dumars in his prime

Lebron is Dominique Wilkins with better ball handling and pt guard skills.
if you give him a lane or room he's so big and strong the only way to guard him is to have great footwork to keep him in front of you. Otherwise he your gettin dunked on. You can't even slap the ball out his hands cuz he gathers it like a Running back when he drives through the lane.

Until lebron becomes surrounded with all-stars, we wont see a team play him 1on1 on defense. It just doesn't make sense. Right now, they usually have 2 out of 5 players on the floor that you wont have to guard closely.

Not sure how to stop him but try to expose his weakness by having him fall in love with the jumpers. Get into his head by saying he doesnt have an outside game and see if he falls for that.

True even before this year I would have picked Paul Pierce as my choice against Bron, just because they seem to seriously not like each other, and up their level of play whenever their teams meet. I still remember when they almost fought in pre-season.

they can't stand each other

I think it's died down but Lebron's rookie season Paul got ejected in cleveland and told Lebron he ain't sht before he left the court.

The very next time they played Paul dropped 40 on him.

I recall it specifically cux it was the first time I saw Paul spazz out like that.
He was pst but I do think it's died down since.

No one can guard Lebron when healthy, but you can say that about a lot of superstars in the NBA. No one can stop Kobe 1-1, Shaq ( Prime ), KG, Wade ( Healthy) Baron Davis, T-Mac. There's a lot of players you can't stop 1-1.

if you're good at defending pick and rolls, then yes, that's all lebron does...he can penetrate but his teammates make the lane open. 1on1 with kobe or t-mac would be interesting...

Marion, Pierce, Artest.

Without a team effort though, you won't contain him.
