Can we at least agree on one thing? That Lebrons game is EXTREMELY limited - he has very few offensive tools. This is his entire offensive toolbox:


-transition up the court full speed and barrel thru anything in his way and pretend to get fouled while he elbows his opponent in the face (very effective at scoring this way)
-great court vision - slings passes to weak side and strong side shooters
-backs down his defender (only from 6 feet or closer tho) if he's in the post anywhere much farther than that he is extremely inconsistent due to poor footwork and poor shooting/handles
-pray he shoots a 3 and that it hits something
-drive to the hoop (very effective if he doesn't get stripped or have to dribble more than one or two times)
-can't even be counted on to make a FT

That's pretty much it. When you look at a player like Kobe, or KD even they don't really have a single area of expertise that they don't completely excel at

Let's look at Kobe for example. There's not a single thing he could not do on offense. Nothing - he was even the best post player in the NBA for a while - which is ridiculous for a guard. He was also the teams main facilitator most years which shows he could do so at a winning level. And then on the defensive end he's one of the best on ball defenders of all time at his position - Lebron is more of a weak side helper and also a guy that likes to run down and block from behind which is impressive but overall there's no contest that Kobe took on the defensive challenge of the other teams best player and wanted to humiliate them


Spot on

Great analysis. Lebron is great at passing and at getting to the rim. Besides those 2 areas, he's average at best. Very streaky outside shooter. Poor in crunch time on offense in general. Average post player. Average foot work. If he wasn't such a beast physically (PEDs, COUGH) then he wouldn't even have a ring. He plays bully ball.

He's probably the least talented/technical offensive player when you look at all of the GOAT type players.

In Lebron's defense, he hasn't had to be as skilled as less physically/athletically gifted players. For his entire career, he has been pound-for-pound the strongest, fastest and most athletic player in the NBA. There are a lot of reasons to hate on Lebron, but his stats can't be argued against. Outside of Wilt, this guy is probably the greatest stat stuffer of all-time. Bottom line: Lebron is the Shaq of small forwards - not as skilled as other elite players of similar size but absolutely dominant warts and all.

I agree. Good Shaq comparison.
