The irony is that James, despite his aversion to being a focused scorer like Bryant, is historically a more prolific scorer. James is third all time in scoring average per game, averaging 27.6, behind only Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. Bryant is 10th at 25.5 points a game. For a more balanced view, consider this. Since 2003, when James entered the league, Bryant has taken 525 more shots than James & and scored 86 fewer points than him.

Wow! Those are some crazy stats. It's certainly odd. I have never viewed LeBron as much of a "scorer", which surely is a view stoked by ESPN. When you're almost averaging a triple-double, it's easy to forget the points are at 30. The Durant/LeBron MVP race is seeming a bit skewed. All you see is how good Durant is at scoring 24/7. Yet James is shooting a higher percent - but no one cares anymore.

Espn should have an image clause in their contracts with analysts. Brian is like 500 pounds. How can you be an analyst of any physical activity when you weigh 500 pounds?

The funniest part of you heat fans is the complete irreverence for Kobe and Jordan's influence on your beloved Wade and LeBron.

Last time I've checked Doc Rivers(coach of Miami's rival) said 'If Lebron dont win its because voters are tired of voting every year for him' Durant> better scorer than lebron, YEAH Worst Rebounder(but taller and higher wingspan) Worst Passer Worst Defender Next.

if only it was easy 
KD is not a better scorer than LeBron. Better pure shooter? No question, but how exactly is he the better scorer.

He is not even better scorer. IF LeBron was being gifted FTAs from refs like Durant has been al season long, he would score more on better effiency.

Kobe is definitely not top 5 NBA this year, his efficiency is not even top 10 anymore - it was for first part of season but now it's gone back down again.

If you're not a fan of the Heat, you're a fan of every other team in the NBA... When Thunder fans knock LeBron, I simply reply with "well he did win a ring against OKC"... That's when they bring up the Spurs... Damn, are you a OKC fan or Spurs? When Bulls fans knock the Heat, I reply with "well Miami did beat the Bulls with a healthy Rose"... That's when they bring up the Mavs... Damn, are you a Bulls fan or Mavs?
