I do, however, expect LeBron to be Larry Bird.
Interesting statistical note: According to basketball-reference.com, LeBron's first 4 seasons (in order) are most similar to: Ricky Davis (2002-03), Grant Hill (1998-99), Tracy McGrady (2004-05), and Grant Hill (1999-00).
Also, according to that site, he has led the league that last two years in a metric they call Player Wins.
I just want a damn championship.
You can't go a day without the media comparing LBJ to Jordan and it's so tiresome. I dont want Jordan. I want LBJ to have his own legacy that when it's all said and done it wont even be a thought. This may be the best shot at a title that we have though. I dont know if LBJ stays when his contract is up but I do know they have made some bad choices around him and I dont know if they can get out of this before it's too late. The role players are the key to the rest of the post-season.
