Manu Ginobili is better than Lebron James! Infact go back to each of LBJ years, when was he the best? Since 2003, kobe, Wade, Melo, all treated LBJ, not to mention Kawhi Leonard in San Antonio dismantled the heat 2 years in a row! Kevin Durant dog walked LBJ. Yes LBJ is having a sensation of a year at 35. But he, as the "King" has never dominated nor reigned in the NBA consistently! Tim Duncan is better than LBJ! Scottie pippen is neck and neck with LBJ for greatest 3 to play! LBJ always is neck and for the best, but never clearly the best, or undisputed best!!! "Never "

Jay Williams: LeBron James has seen way more physical teams tryna stop him 😂😂😂😂 Boston Celtics Detroit Pistons San Antonio Spurs Golden state warriors have all tried to bully him 😂 Clippers ain't even 50% of those teams 😂😂😂

Pressure guard Lefraud James end to end bringing the ball up and make him shoot brick 3's and make him dribble to his left to shoot and then you can block his weak jumper all day long.

Aye jay will you really believe teams haven’t tried to blitz lebron off them screens 😂 it won’t work he’s the best passer in the nba he’ll find the open man plus it’ll put too much stress on the clippers defense because if they doubling lebron they gonna be at a disadvantage at all times

I honestly believe Jay Williams doesn't watch the games like Bron went against Giannis, Kawhi, Paul George and Marcus Morris plus the nets in 5 days where he didn't have one game under 29 this is sustainable the sad part about it is the clippers played their best Paul George and Lou Williams will disappear in the playoffs per usual which are going to hurt them plus the added fact LEBRON AND AD GET BETTER IN THE PLAYOFFS with VARIOUS PLAYERS WHO ARE PLAYOFF READY compared to the clippers

tell pat bev to cover lebron only in their next game. so he can see what he can do against him and announce it to that you will guard him all game. paul pierce wanted all the smoke and said he knew how lebron worked. lebron dropped 49 i think. cooked him. why you think he so sour about watching a guy who in his 17th season is still better than all of paul's years even his young ones lollll and another thing. man it must be hard for you lebron haters. and fans.....back in 2003-04 they paid their hard earned money...and started to watch this kid from akron whoop on their teams....17 years later those same seasonal fans keep giving away their money to watch the same player cook their team... now that's commitment.

I kinda agree with Pat. I really wanna know is LeBron really that hard to guard? I understand he’s a tank don’t get me wrong but I’ve been watching this man for years and honestly players let Bron walk to the basket!! People hardly ever put a body on him I’m telling you really really watch what’s going on his defenders always look scared or lazy. Kobe was hard to guard, MJ was hard to guard, T-Mac was hard to guard. Again I’m not taking anything away from Bron but this just how i see it.

How is it harder to guard kd than lebron? Lebron shoots from 3 too. Sure it’s not as accurate as Kd’s 3 but lebron can pass too. You can’t double or triple him because he’ll find the open man. KD can’t do that it you double team him he can’t do much.

Y'all just don't like Pat Beverly's confidence. He don't bow down to Lebron like everyone else. Last time I checked, Pat locked Lebron down to stop a game winning show in their last meeting.

I agree KD is harder to guard like SAS implied. Lebron is trash midrange, and he always has been. Shoots below 40% for his whole career. Then he can't shoot free throws. KD has zero offensive weaknesses.
