Lebron's offensive numbers are benefiting greatly due to he rule changes.
True..partially. NBA has changed rules, But like you said. Its as if "Stern went crazy to change the rules to allow those three guys easier oppurtunities to score"
I dont buy that, my opinion. League officials changed it due to the recent delcine in scoring. Less Score=Possibly less fan base. Lets face it, a good scoring game is better than a good defensive game. At least thats what I think what majority of the NBA fan base wants to see.
Im not a Lebron fan, I love Kobe for the same exact reason that I hate Lebron, and hate Kobe for the same reason Lebron is loved. Thanks Kobe/Nike
.......But this we cannot deny, Lebron's skill level is highly developed in only his 3rd year in the league. A few knack on him would be " No defense" or "Not as clutch as _______" insert favorite player here
, can be improved overtime.. Surely and there's no doubt as of this point that Lebron is not on Kobe's level offensively and
defensively but I thinks its a bit of understatement and is misleading ourselves if we were to say that Lebron is not athletically gifted offensively.
Just to keep some facts straight, I am a Kobe fan eversince..... even before he even wore an NBA cap on draft night and shook Davd Stern's hand., and no I am not jumping the Lebron James roller coaster ride.
When some Laker fans back then were doubting Kobe, shooting airballs after airballs in the post season against Utah..I firmly believed he can be a great player...fast forward and im glad that he turned up to be exactly what I think he would be.
But guys Lebron James is just too damn good and its too early to close the book or judge who may be ahead than who even compared to what Kobe has already accomplished.
