SO after the scary fall the other night for Lebron he played two days later against MInny. First take had the discussion of "Is Lebron the most durable athlete EVER." Now before I go into my WTF moment I will say one stat was crazy impressive to me for Lebron. He has missed 33 games in 10 years that is 3 a season which is pretty damn durable. Now, with that being said... I think of durable I think of Kobe breaking a finger on his shooting hand and not missing a game. I think of MJ playing the flu game. I don't think of "elbow gate" or the new "great knee debate" for the King. I can admit I am spoiled because Kobe does not miss games no matter what he has hurt (it seems) but to the LBJ thread I ask.... Is this a valid discussion of LBJ being the most durable of all time?
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
