CP3 on LBJ
"Freak of nature," Team USA guard Chris Paul said this week. "He's, what, six or seven inches taller than me and maybe 60 pounds [heavier] than me. And he can do everything I can do with the ball. Almost."
CP3 (and JKidd) made Tyson Chandler a threat on the offensive end. LeBron didn't do that in this Olympics. As great as he was (he was clearly that teams MVP) who benefited most from his passing? 3 point shooters! I rest my case.
@ comparing olympics to regular season, cp3 had to make chandler a weapon on the hornets, he didn't have many other options.
Chandler wasn't on the us Olympic team to score, so nobody made him a weapon.
Aids was Magic's weakness...not defense guy.
And Magic finished at the rim just as effectively as LeBron. Yall get caught up in highlight when Magic was a walking highlight reel.
Jumping higher doesn't make you more versatile when the most athletic and least athletic of the two in question are both getting it done.
Yall acting like Magic didn't straight sh*t on people too.
Yes defense was a weak point of magic's game, aids was more of magics kryptonite.
No magic didn't finish at the rim just as effectively, and not nearly as much. So is lebron, stupid point to make.
Actually jumping higher(along with everything else athletic based) does indeed make you more versatile. In fact it adds multiple ways he can be more versatile. You might need to brush up on what versatile means, because it seems you don't comprehend the words meaning.
Lemme give you an example, so you don't reply with another dumb post that further proves you don't know what you are talking about. Lebron's chasedown blocks, magic isn't fast/quick enough to complete the majority of them, recovering on defense, which would require the speed. For jumping, blocking shots(versatility) of centers which would require a high vertical, magic wouldn't be able to complete. Lebron's strength also adds another place where he is more versatile.
magic did sh*t on people and he is the 2nd best player of all time, but it seems you have versatility confused with who is better all time for some reason.
Lebron is more versatile than magic, there really is no other way to slice it.
