LBJ is not a man who lacks confidence in his own abilities, as these statements to the media horde prove. Via the Akron Beacon Journal:

idk why there is so much hate on lebron…some of u sound like he hurt ur feelings with his comments…but anyway kd is no where near a better scorer than lbj lets be serious and neither is kobe. All u kobe sacksuckers have to give respect where its due..i love kobe but lets be real the man is the definition of a nut..great scorer but a nut…btw lebron hasn’t reached his full potential as a scorer or as a player
@Jukai: Study Ronald’s statement March 29, 3:19 am.
Reading all of these comments is pure comedy for me. It’s funny how some of u r calling Lebron overrated and tryna disect every flaw in his game, Which there aren’t many 2 find other than his shooting. However; as a person who is from Chicago, and got the opportunity 2 watch the Greatest Player EVER Play I have 2 put into perspective what Lebron just said. This is y he nor any other player will ever be better than Jordan, because Jordan didn’t claim he could win scoring titles and say he was just gonna focus on rings! MJ was great enough that he won every scoring title(10 in a row which has never been done by anyone), but he also won 6 rings 2 go along with those scoring titles!…….Also just in case any of u might be stupid enough 2 put Lebron or kobe in a sentence where u mention them as the Greatest, just remember that Kobe has lost twice in the finals, and Lebron got swept in the finals! Jordan went 6-0 in the finals! The only current player currently in the league who should be mentioned in the same breath as MJ from this current era is Tim Duncan! 4-0 in the finals, along with 2 MVP trophies as well as 3 finals MVP trophies!
BTW…Durant is not a better all around player than Lebron, but he definitely is a better scorer than Lebron! I trust KD on the line 2 knock down free throws more than I trust Lebron! P.S. Wade better than Lebron also! That ring and finals MVP tells me so! 37 and 9 is nothing 2 sneeze at in the finals!
He said individual accolades are not important. Don’t misconstrue what the man was saying. Any above average player could go out there and jack up 25 plus shots. I can recall several games where Jordan went 13-29, but he hit mad free throws and had 40 points. Lebron is a different type of player the league has ever seen. He did his best to dodge the question, but @ the end every decent hooper believes he can do any defender on the planet. Don’t get it twisted Jordan talked more trash than Reggie Miller & Gary Payton put together they just turned the mics off so you wouldn’t think he was arrogant. Jordan played with like 5 hall of famers. You have Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, Craig Hodges, Dennis Rodman,B.J. Armstrong, Steve Kerr, Ron Harper. Give Bron that level of shooters and defenders then please believe Kobe would be very nervous.
Lebron was also quoted as saying “If I really wanted to … I mean, if I REALLY WANTED TO … I could walk on water.”
I play basketball and I know for a fact through many coaches that the way to beat a zone is to penetrate not shoot. You guys are dumb. Lebron takes any zone and shredds it because he simply is strong enough. Don’t get mad at him for being a freak athlete, hit the weight room and stop him.
Who’s better than Jordan? Nobody!!
you right but thats lebrons team now and much respect to wade he is a beast he is the best second best player on a team in the nba true is lebron is the only player in the nba that can play any position on a court and play as a role player u never seen that before if he gets his freethrows up he be a monster on the court hes already a beats and a superstar
so your just judging a player by his chips remeber its not one player that wins the rings is the teammmmm!!!!! wilt chamberlain is better than tim duncan and just because tim duncan has 4 titles doesn make him the second best player in the history game are you out mind fulio tim duncan is future hall famer as is going down as one the best power fowards int he history of the nba but to put him in the catergories of the greatest nahhhh u mistaken and lebron will be number or if not the best by the time he retires and hes only 28 he got like 10 to 12 more years in him thats amazing he and what ever team he plays with down the long run will probably win like 6 more titles
