In my book, I wrote about how Michael Jordan's competitiveness separated him from everyone else, but so did his force of personality. He had a knack for pulling every eyeball in the room his way ... even a room with 18,000 people in it. Referees and opponents fawned over him. Teammates followed his instructions like drones. If he made an unusually splendid play and glanced into the stands for approval, entire sections would swoon. Command of the room. That's what Jordan had. Kobe doesn't have it, and he never had it. That will always be the difference between them.LeBron? He's getting there. I saw it with my own eyes Saturday. The Cavs emerged for warm-ups and I heard that same familiar squeal from MJ's prime. Urgent. Pleading. Desperate. LeBron! LEBRON! LAAAAAAA-BRONNNNNNNNNN!
Know this: The Kobe-LeBron argument is dead. It's over. LeBron James is the best basketball player alive.

I don't think most fans have.And can we stop with the "Anticipate the worst, hope for the best" drumbeat? We all know, it's Cleveland, nothing good ever happens here. TCE, OIC, Drive, Fumble, Shot, Mesa and whatnot. But it gets tiresome to read the same "Because it's Cleveland" argument.Didn't we already go through all of this with a certain poster whose name started with "T" and ended with "H" and is thankfully no longer posting here?
