I still have his first ever NBA game, against the Kings, on DVD somewhere. And now he's this dude who has been around forever.. Good thing I did not age though! Suck it, Lebron.

The thing that really puts LeBlock over the edge for me is that, despite the fact that he seemingly came out of goddamn nowhere to make it, if you watch the replay closely you'll notice that he didn't even have to go into an all out sprint to get there. In fact, he intentionally shortens his strides to get there at just the right time.

He slows down to get the timing of the jump just right, he's probably the greatest chase down blocker of all time.

poo poo, that's goaltending. He brushed the rim with his left hand. Basket interference, Warriors awarded the title retroactively.

I am very proud to have witnessed Lebron's second game in the NBA in person. I was going to ASU and got cheap tickets to the suns game with my student discount and saw him jump over Shawn Marion and slam the dang Basket Ring off the Ring and the entire place hushed and it felt like he'd be something special

This isn't even a question, it's just how big the statue will be.

I'm guessing a typical lifesize statue on a pedestal right now. I think they'll make it even bigger if he gets any more championships for them - and for the next 2-3 years there's probably a shot at him winning another.

Can't they just bring one of the Saddam statues over and replace the head? I'm sure the rest is anatomically accurate for a LeBron

This points to what I feel is the most unfair part of Lebron's game. We've had tall strong players that can jump ridiculously high and finish strong at the rim and whatnot but a man who's 6'8 and 250 pounds should not be this fast. It's that type of absurd extra advantage that takes Lebron from great player to video game nonsense.

Agreedo, that block was amazing. It's unreal the strength it must have taken to counter the momentum of Splitter's arm+the ball in mid-air. The stakes weren't as high though since the game was already out of hand, and let's not forget Tiago got his revenge the year after (not on Lebron and I think maybe a goaltend(?), but still): https://youtube.com/watch?v=uFxH1-fPeXo

Game 5 of that series owned and I'm still angry at myself for not going. So bizarre that the most dominant team performance in Finals history wasn't a sweep.

The post history where you said Cleveland would never ever win a finals because the Miami titles were all Pat Riley's doing and LeBron had abandoned his only ace in the hole ?

The only person here with an unimpeachable posting history is the guy who said Steph Curry was an overrated system player, not even the best player on his team, even when everyone laughed at him ... ... ...

VISIT THE STICKIED GOON HOLIDAY CHARITY DRIVE THREAD IN GBS.

Goons are changing the way children get an education in Haiti.

Edit - Oops, no they aren't. They donated to doobie instead.

I was looking for ammo in the lebron vs Jordan debate and came across a game changer. During the 2 years between 3peats, losing Horace Grant hurt the bulls more than losing Jordan.

Time line:
Bulls win championship.
Jordan retires and the bulls only lose 2 less regular season games.
Horace grant leaves in free agency and bulls are in a tailspin. Jordan comes back and bulls make playoffs. Jordan and pippen lose to Shaq and none other than Horace loving Grant in the playoffs.
Bulls acquire Dennis Rodman to fill the power forward role of the sorely missed Horace Grant and then 3peat.
