https://i1.wp.com/artfiles.art.com/images/-/Lebron-James-Photograph-C12211282.jpeg

Forty-eight points. The final 25 points for his team. Twenty-nineof the last 30 points. The final 11 field goals. LeBron James’ performance tonight in the Cavs 109-107 double-overtime victory in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals was one of the best performances in NBA playoff history. Said James, “I’m just blessed.” Ya think?

  1. Maybe Kobe will shut up long enough to learn from LeBron. Play the hand you have, and make it better with your superstar skill. But alas, Jellybeans’ son was taught to go for self, and so he’ll always do that.

  2. SJH says:

    Lawrence, LeBron wouldn’t have gotten to the Finals if his team was in the Western Conference. They would’ve lost to the Suns, too.

    Lemme preface with: I’m not a LeBron hater. I like him and I’m rooting for the Cavs in the Finals. But real talk…

    In terms of overall game (lest we forget that defense and jump-shooting count), Kobe is better than LeBron. Matter of fact, LeBron has a better supporting cast. Kobe’s got Lamar Odom, who’s inconsistent as hell and has never been the scorer we expected him to be. Oh, plus Walton’s boy, Smush Parker and Kwame Brown. Who’s his Ilgauskas, Gooden and Hughes? Who’s Kobe’s Boobie?

    And dammit, if Kobe scored 48 points, we’d all be like, “What’s the big deal? He had a decent night.” That puts it in perspective.

    LEBRON JAMES IS AMAZING.
    HES HOT.
    FUN TO WATCH.
    ESPECAILLY WHEN HE DUNKS.
    I LIKE ALL OF THE CAVS.

    and kobe is really good, dont lie laurence rooss..haha

  4. nick says:

    man lebron probably isnt a beter player then kobe but hes stronger faster and taller a way better passer and hes unstoppable driving to the basket and i think hes the better dunker which is true cuz he is now kobes a way better jump shooter better scorer im not sure bout defense maybe hes a lil better or there equal but the trait the kobe has over lebron and over every other player that truly makes him the best is his clutch performance and thats wut lebron lacks

  5. b*weezie says:

    u tha truth

  6. fardowsa says:

    Lets c Lebron is the man no matter what happens his team will not be a looser cause he is the only man who puts his team in the finals plus he is HOT…..and..well Nick is right cause he isnt better than Kobe but he is for sure stronger and taller and he can dunk better than kobe……

  7. Jordan says:

    Ummmm? ok SJH. You dont know what your talking about. Yeah Kobe takes over games. but i havent seen Kobe do THAT in the PLAYOFFS. PLAYOFFS. PLAYOFFS. Kobe does it in the regular season. Im a kobe fan i saw him and Lebron go at it at the state farm USA basketball challenge in Las Vegas. And i think Kobe is better, but to say Lebron had a decent night, 29 of the last 30. 48 points, in the eastern conference finals. ( i dont care if its the east, the west and the east still play the same sport… basketball ) is really sounding EXACTLY like a Lebron hater

  8. ant says:

    ok real talk!! these niggas talkin bout lebron havin a better supportin cast than kobe. u gotta be jokin!! im from cleveland, i love the cavs ta death but u out yur mind!! he talkin bout lamar odem bein inconsistent an shit!! look at larry hughes, ERIC snow, z, verajo, an pavlovich!! shit we gotta beastin ass reboundin squad, an we killem wit the second point chances!! but none a these niggas can actually support us wit the points when it comes down to it. shit they try!! but lebron somehow has that magic touch keepin us on top!! but they gotta learn from that, not juss sit back an watch him do it!! support it give em a break~~

  9. yo mama says:

    Lebron is way better than kobe, kobe is only a ball hog. i would want 2 play with lebron not kobe

  10. kingjamesfan says:

    LeBron James is the no.1 player in today’s NBA generation. He is the only player that explodes like MJ. No doubt! LeBron James is the next Jordan.

    JEM23
    LeBron James fan

  11. Chris says:

    As it says on his on a Kobe Bryant site

    “Kobe Bryant became the youngest NBA player to reach the 20,000-point mark last week.”

    I think Kobe has the potential to be the “next Jordan” but I feel he will never trully get the respect he deserves becasue of his attitude.

  12. illest says:

    FOR ALL OF YOU WHO JUST STARTED WATCHING BASKETBALL….THERE WILL NEVER NEVER BE ANOTHER MICHAEL JORDAN. JUST LIKE THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER MAGIC, BIRD, WILT OR SHAQUILLE. PLEASE GET OFF OF THIS MEDIA HYPED NEXT JORDAN THING. FIRST IT WAS GRANT HILL. THEN JERRY STACKHOUSE. VINCE CARTER. KOBE BRYANT. LEBRON JAMES. WHOSE GOING TO BE NEXT? ITS A DISGRACE TO WHAT MIKE BROUGHT TO THE GAME OF BASKETBALL AND SPORTS IN GENERAL.

  13. Dannie says:

    illest – I second that. It’s more than just talent and 81 point games. Everything has to line up perfectly for another player to be considered on MJ or Magic’s level. Meaning you have to be as good or better and be in situation condusive to winning (ALOT). Kobe will always have the monkey on his back of not winning a championship without Shaq in his prime leading the team (Kobe fans he hasn’t even won a playoff series yet without shaq) and LeBron needs major help from management if he is going to win anything in Cleveland.

  14. ryan says:

    ok first of all kobe is a more talented player!you cant argue with the offensive numbers kobe puts up. he dropped 81 on my raptors and that cant be beat, BUT lebron is the most balanced talent in the NBA, when you need him to score he scores, when he has to pass he passes, when you need boards he rebounds, when you need a steal he hits the floor, when you need a shotblocker he is in the paint, when you need a 3pt play he will answer.and he does all these things at a superstar level. just scoring is no answer for all of that. give me a choice which player to play with and i choose the king anyday

  15. thebrotherreport says:

    IMO LeBron’s game is closer to Magic Johnson’s than it is Jordan’s.

  16. I SECOND THAT. LEBRON IS NOTHING LIKE JORDAN. HIS GAME RESEMBELS A MORE ABOVE THE RIM PLAYING MAGIC. AND HEY, THAT’S PRETTY FUCKING GOOD. BUT WE ALL KNOW (YES HATERS, YOU TOO) THAT KOBE IS THE NEXT 23. HIS GAME IS A MIRROR IMAGE BUT WITH BETTER RANGE AND A BETTER HANDLE. TO SAY THAT ONE MUST HAVE THE EXACT SAME OR BETTER CARRER THAN JORDAN IS REDICULOUS. THESE ARE NOT CLONES. IT’S THE NEXT JORDAN NOT THE NEXT BETTER THAN JORDAN. I DON’T THINK THERE CAN BE A BETTER THAN JORDAN. FACE IT, ALL HATERS AND LOVERS ALIKE… WE ALL LOVE AND HATE KOBE FOR THE SAME REASON… WE ALL WANT TO BE “LIKE MIKE” BUT ARE FUCKING PISSED OFF THAT KOBE, AND ONLY KOBE, CAN SAY THAT HE IS. AND YOU KNOW THAT’S TRUE. SO KEEP ON TRYING TO PIMP LEBRON, WADE, T-MAC, VINCE, OJ MAYO…IT DOESN’T MEAN SHIT. THE NEXT JORDAN ALREADY EXISTS. HIS NAME IS KOBE BRYANT.

    ALL THE REST ARE PLAYING TO BE THE NEXT KOBE.

  17. walker says:

    lebron james is the best thing that has ever happen to the Nba

  20. Taurus says:

  21. Man who eva say lebron aint da best den they wrong he can be kobe at everything driving to the basket and dunking. Kobe might have a better shot than lebron but lebron is a better clucth player than kobe

  22. Bron Bron is the man he mu uncle

  23. derek says:

    I think calling LeBron the next Jordan is an insult…to LeBron. I see him as the next Magic. LeBron came into the league creating for others…straight out of high school. It took Jordan time under Dean Smith at UNC AND a few years in the NBA to realize he had other options. LeBron may want to take the last shot because winners always do, even if they miss but if he finds an open teammate, he will hit them with the pass with no remorse.

    The next 23? Nah, I am thinking 32…kind of like some guy from Michigan State named Earvin.

  24. daquan crump says:

    LEbron you are the shit and I think you are the best sents mike jordan

    LEBRON JAMES – YEAH, I AGREE , THE MOST BALANCED NBA PLAYER THAT WALKED THE EARTH!

    LEBRON , U ROCK BABY!!!!

  31. guian, Dominican School says:

    Lebron James…. NOONE else comes close! Best leader of a Team! Definitely a GOLD MINE! If only blessed with a better supporting team…errr…u got it ! 😉 at 22 yrs old, this MAN sure is gonna be SOMEBODY someday, with NO EQUAL!!!!

  32. First of all, evr since he was a rookie, lebron has been a phenom, he made it to da finals w/o a player like shaq, he’s not only a scorer but also a passer,rebounder or if u need him 2 defend, he will defnd,he’s not selfish or self-centered, he’s a better leader than whoever u think is better and by the way who’s kobe bryant?what has he proven?….one thing is for sure, bryant is the one who is over-rated by many…lebron is,was and will always be the best around here.PERIOD.PERIOD.

  33. jasmin says:

    lebron is my favourite player ever.he had wonderfull
    jump.

  34. paulo victor says:

    caraca o cara é 10

  35. bballbabe3 says:

    i think labrons a beast ! hes awesome. he plays really well. so do i 😀 if you know what i mean 😉

  36. nisha says:

    All ya’ll can throw that away, Lebron is and 4ever will be better than kobe. Kobe is hard headed, he dont want to listen long enough to learn something, he is also a hater. Now as Lebrons wifey (lol) i should let yall know that kobe may have talent but Lebron has talent and heart, and its heart that really counts when playing a competative sport like basketball.

  37. Nisha is a Moron! says:

    All the “hard headed” Kobe learned how to do was win 3 straight NBA World Championships. How many Bron got? Nuff said. Scoreboard Bitch!

  38. real says:

    we know why kobe has 3 rings, and its not mainly because of him. he was the second best player on the team. no shaq means no kobe rings…period. number of rings doesnt mean you are better than the next man. charles barkley had no rings, does that mean rasheed wallace is better than barkley was? hell no! could kobe have lead the cavaliers to the finals if he was on the team instead of lebron? hell no! lebron scores more, more assists, more rebounds, more steals, more blocks, he’s bigger, stronger, faster, smarter. how the hell does this equate to kobe being better than lebron? on top of that in head to head matchups lebron always outplays kobes over rated ass. stop being dumb and start watching the game. lebron is already better than kobe. as a matter of fact kobe isnt even better than paul pierce and pierce proved it by working out on kobe in the finals. kobe is the most over rated player in the history of the NBA.

  39. NON-Fiction says:

    lebron is lebron

  40. LEBRON JAMES #23 says:

    I am who i am. Jordan is Jordan, Kobe is Kobe. Im just a good player with determination to be remembered. Just like Jordan and Kobe. We are similar because of are ability to take over any game. Im going to leave a mark that know one else will. KING JAMES

  41. Ka-T says:

    Ok here’s the thing, lebron rebounds passes and scores. A lot! awesome! Kobes #’s aren’t the same but kobe can do the same and better he has proven it! If kobe wanted he could score 50ppg instead of wasting time here look over footage of kobe and you will notice hell just hang around for a while and help his team score, and when neded hell go off like no1 else and drop points! I can’t remember was it lebron who scored 81? And 60+ in 3 quarters? Refresh my memory kobe haters!

  42. Hot Vivica says:

    It was my kobe, the best player he don’t need to dunk in every play…he can shoot,guard and yes dunk 2. 1997 champ!

  43. Plain Peter says:

    Check this out all you stupid and ignorant people! Quote “Lebron is bigger,stronger, taller, more clutch and faster. Wow plain stupidity! Yeah kobes a midget at 6-6/7″ lebron is a giant at 6’8″ yup makes sense?…lebron IS bigger he’s like 250+! Well shaq was over 300 so what’s ur point? stronger? looks can be decieving. What does height have to do with this? They are both tall and if that 1 inch is so important why are you comparing lebron to 6’6” midgit jordan? Think! Kwame brown is taller than lebron so automatically that makes kwame better? No? Y? He’s TALLER! More CLUTCH? HELL NO! That’s all im saying retards, and faster? Yup that’s y they callhim the brazillean blurr and flash right? Retards! When lebron ages and loses his “musles” and can’t drive it in what’s gonna happen? Jump shot? Nope! He’s never heard of that! 40yr old kobe will take care of that. Hope this helps all you ppl

  50. TowelWavers says:

    lebron is no michael jordan. michael jordan talked through his game. now lebron talks through his mouth. the closest thing to michael jordan now is kobe. watch their games. if you guys know basketball, kobe is more of michael. lebron is way way off…the only thing “Michael Jordan” about lebron is his number.

  51. Vise1 says:

    KoBii Babii!!!

  52. basshunter says:

    i think LeBron James should be the next jordon because he is the best of the best. Goooooooood job LeBron James

  53. Rus Da Bus says:

    Lets put it like this, let me paint ya’ll a picture::

    The score is 110 – 112, with 3 secs left (just enough time to inbound the ball, run down court and pull up for a 3-pointer)…NOW, in all honesty, who would you put your money, or your house even, to make the shot…lebron james, or KOBE BRYANT…u must insane to give lebron that shot..u will be disappointed everytime…thanks for the audience….

  54. This is quite a hot information. I think I’ll share it on Twitter.

  55. Dr. John Haas Ph.D in National Affairs says:

    We are now in the playoffs its May 25 2009 and Lakers are up 2-1 on The Nuggets and Cavaliers are down 1-2 to the Magic. Now these games have all been close, what have we seen? LEBRON Hits an amazing 3. Ok now the whole media is starting to claim “Lebron best clutch player of all time!” Lebron, Most Amazing Shot ever!” Lebron, passes Jordan and Kobe!” why the heck is every one saying this? One, ONE 3 does not define a player as the best clutch performer ever, not the best player ever and also Lebrons shot is nothing better than that of Jordans or one of the many koby has made. The Media hypes Lebron too much. Ebverytime I see sports news I see Lebron. The headline reads LEBRON! Content: Lebron to start game in game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Was there ever any doubt? He is the Star player and one of the best players in the league. The Media just Bombards influential people with Lebron News, Anyone tired of Lebron? I am and he’s only been in the league for six years. Kobe Bryant might not be the best teammate and probably will never win any humanitarian awards. He is Not the friendliest guy out there and I don’t know why we make such a big deal about this! You know there are lesser players out there that are so much more arrogant than him, but why do we hate Kobe so much? Because we all know that he is simply the best and since we can’t criticize his game we take shots at him in a more personal way, his Personality. Jordan was not a basket of Sunshine in the first ten years of his career. We forget that sometimes right? Yeah…if there is Anyone who deserves to be compared to Jordan its Kobe. There came Iverson, McGrady, Grant, Stackhouse etc…what happened to all these men? They Never met the requirements to be up there with the greats/Kobe and Jordan. If you believe otherwise in any of my claims
    made in the previous paragraph just post your rebuttle
