re: Lakers trade D'angelo Russell & Mozgov to Nets for Brook Lopez, 27th pick - AlexLSU on 6/20/17 at 8:29 pm
Randle is never going to be more than a 3rd option or so, but the Lakers need to keep his rebounding. I think he'll be a great transition guy too with Ball running and looking to distribute. Randle can easily be a 17/10 guy shooting 50% ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Jordan vs Kobe vs Lebron: 1 on 1 - AlexLSU on 6/15/17 at 10:07 am
Lebron would not beat either MJ or Kobe in 1-on-1. He's admittedly not a 1-on-1 player, while MJ and Kobe both made a career out of pooing on guys in 1-on-1 situations. MJ has said in more than one interview (check YouTube) that Kobe could very well beat him in 1-on-1 because "he stole all my mo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote] By no metric is this true at this point in his career. And he will not likely increase his numbers more. His 2 pt shooting is 50.7% (barely in the top 150), His 3 Pt shooting is spectacular and puts him 3rd overall (coincidentally, Steve Kerr is number 1). Barely in the top 400 in Field goa...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Lebron and Jordan death star question - AlexLSU on 6/10/17 at 1:03 pm
Jordan was the more dominant one-on-one offensive and defensive player. He also had a mental edge that I think is hard for anyone to replicate. In his era, that was enough to dominate the league. Lebron is a better all around player and leader. His passing, rebounding, scoring and overall basketball...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: NBA Finals Thread Game 4: Warriors @ Cavs -- Cavs avoid sweep 137-116-Warriors lead 3-1 - AlexLSU on 6/9/17 at 11:02 pm
Lebron was a +32 tonight with another triple double. Most importantly, as the leader, he had the Cavs ready for their best game of the season. In a game where rolling over was definitely plausible. They'll lose game 5, but this was impressive. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: The Reason Lebron isn't Legoat - AlexLSU on 6/8/17 at 12:38 pm
The hate on this board for, at worst, the second best basketball player of all time is really sad. I disliked Lebron for a while but finally realized I was just being a hater, because there's little, if anything, you can hate him for on or off the court. I'm glad I realized I was hating just to hate...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
