I can't wait to see Lebron and Paul play together on the Olympic games. I think those two on the same team would be beyond dominance.

They are the best at there respective positions in the league. It’s hard to say who’s better at the duties asked of them.

If I had to pick one for my team I’d take Lebron, as physically he’s a once in a generation type specimen. The dude can legitimately play and defend four positions…his upside is almost unprecedented. Paul is amazing, but he’s still a 6’ (at best) guy with very good (not great) athleticism for the position. Give him a better jump shot and it’s closer, but Lebron is too unique a talent to pass up.

No, I'm just saying he also knows how to attack and shoot a jumper which is what LeBron has been lacking at.

I think you are talking about the Spurs, they didn't play the lakers, in fact that Hornets probably would've won against the Lakers this year because the Lakers suck at pick n roll defense.

Lebron's whole game is that he's an all-around player. Lebron excells in multiple areas while not severely lacking in any areas, and the same cannot be said about Chris Paul. Lebron is the better overall player.

The answer is Lebron James because he's bigger. I wish basketball were more complicated than that, but sometimes it isn't. Not with all other things being basically equal. One guy's 6'0, the other guy's 6'9.

Ok tell me all things Chris Paul isn't good at.

I don't think you understand.

He's black and athletic.

Therefore he can't shoot. Duh.
