LeBron is too quick and massive.. he is soon going to be the best offensive player, if not already.. Kobe is a "binge scorer".. but he is too perimeter oriented nowadays to be consistently efficient.
no melo will be the best offensive player

LeBron doesn't have JKidd feeding him layup after layup on the Cavs nor does he get opportunities on the fast break like this in the NBA. LeBron is a great finisher and has always fed off the fastbreak. Only this game, it's a bit ridiculous. :mhihi:

Kobe has never focused on his off the ball game much.. probably the only time he really played off the ball was when we had Harper and Fisher..

if JKidd was here, Kobe clearly would work on that. But, ya, it's not natural to him at this point.

I think this will make the cavs really focus on getting Bibby.

One thing I love about Lebron and not Melo is that Lebron has been taking good shots, not forcing it up. That's why Lebron>Melo in this tournament.

But damn, Laker fans are bandwagoners even against their archrivals. One great game and Laker fans are calling him the best offensive player in the game. It's fine if you call him the best player in the current game, or heck even the entire tournament but please don't jump over the line. :disagree:

BTW, what has happened to Kobe's handles the last year? Since 06-07, he has had butterfingers on his hands. In the tournament, he is just so slow, such low ballhandling skills, he is having trouble blowing by international players, URUGUAN PLAYERS! Is he holding back and saving it for the season or has he just lost it?

It would be nice if they can hold this team to under 70 points for game, or at least don't let them reach 80.

2nd play of the game for Kobe, on the right wing tries to drive past a uruguan player but he easily keeps up with Kobe. A double comes, he tries to split it(which he did with EASE 05-06 and earlier), but loses the ball.

Not being fickle at all. Kobe is generally a streaky scorer... LeBron is consistently efficient because he gets to the basket easily.. It is clear that soon LeBron will take over that mantle.. it looks like he has been working on his jumpshots as well.. some people would say he is already there.. and I think that is an argument to make.. because I do believe that LeBron is very efficient... he also makes his decision quickly and is just a natural at it.. he rarely forces.

Yes Kobe has been slow, I think it's due to him losing a lot of muscle mass.. He did not lose that much weight on purpose, it was due to depression IMO.
